Whatever Happened to Barbra Joan?

Sometimes I wonder what happened to Barbra Streisand. Before the Funny Girl movie she seemed shy, sweet and really quiet. I prefer that Barbra. Not the "could jump on me and eat my face at any second" Barbra. That Barbra scares me.

Harry Potter star Daniel Radcliffe on the kissing scene in the new film, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. As if I didn't want to see this film before...*half-sarcasm*
"I saw the film at the London premiere and, my God, my lips are like the lips of a horse distending independently away from my face and trying to encompass the lower half of hers, and so I apologise, Bonnie."

He has a way with words, hasn't he.

I finally saw Sally Field's Oscar winning performance in Norma Rae yesterday. One thing is for sure, if I want to see a good movie about a woman rallying against unfair or dangerous working conditions...I'll stick to Silkwood. However, I can definitely see why she won Best Actress. The role is tailor-made Oscar material, but Field does incredibly well with it. That being said, there is no way it was THE best of the entire year.

The war against beige continues. I hate beige. It's a terrible color.

So there was some buzz going around a little while ago about Julianne Moore playing Hillary Clinton. She would star opposite Dennis Quaid in the film Special Relationship about former President Clinton's relationship with Tony Blair. Peter Morgan, writer of The Queen, was said to be writing. Then, just recently I was incredibly bummed to hear that Julianne Moore and Peter Morgan (most likely) had dropped out. Replacing her will be Hope Davis, who in fact, is much closer in looks to Hillary Clinton. I haven't seen her in anything, but she was recently nominated for a Tony for "God of Carnage" so maybe this isn't SO bad. Still, Julianne as Hillary would have been a sight.

I could've put a pic of Hope Davis, but I think we all need to bask in the warmth that is Julianne today.


  1. Isn't this being done for tv. God Hope Davis, call me a star worshipper, but now we pick someone few know. i think Annette Bening (and only Annette Bening) can do this role any justice. don't you think she'd be great?

  2. Apparently, HBO was interested, so yes it's going to be a TV movie. Annette Bening...hadn't even thought of that. Wish I had.

  3. HBO Films also produces theatrically released stuff, but I think this is going to television.

    By the way, Hope Davis is brilliant.


I dislike when you comment anonymously. Leave a fake name if you like, but it's easier to respond to someone who has a name. Keep the foul language to a minimum.
