Jezebel thinks Lindsay Lohan has had botox. After watching this clip, I agree. Lindsay is 21 years old. As an unrepentant lover of actresses of a certain age, I don't mean this in the way other people would but Lindsay could pass for a thirty-something and that's not good. Thirty-something is beautiful as long as you're actually in your 30s. You may recall that I was quite a fan of the redhead upstart but I've mostly successfully weaned myself away. Every once in a while though, I get sad again.
My Dinner With...
When I told you about my imaginary dinner with Kathleen Turner I ended by passing the meme to other bloggers too. Quite a wide array of dinner guests. Modfab went classic with Orson Wells, All About My Movies went current with Rose Byrne, and Victim of the Time went overseas with Jeanne Moreau. So many scrumptious conversations.
