"David Fincher, Can We Talk?"

Dave, I just got back from one of those Academy screenings of Benjamin Button. Totally dug it... Especially the part where Benjamin gets younger and younger and Brad Pitt looks exactly like he did back in '92. Golden! Brad can run through my rivers whenever he wants. I love the way your brain works, Dave.

So... yeah, 1992. I'm sure that brings someone else to mind. I give you one guess you naughty man. Call me. I have an idea. I'll foot the f/x bill myself if needs be.

I wonder if Sharon's idea involves 'acting' in a film, (looking like she's still 35!) then sending all members of the Hollywood Foreign Press Association nice, expensive watches just so that she can win a globe thus leading to the belief that she's admired, respected and recognised as a 'serious' actress.

I thought it was perfectly funny. Captured Sharon's haughty-yet-faux-familiar cadence quite well.

anon hilarious. I think it definitely involves 'acting'... but only with quotes ;)

Sharon Stone is a guilty pleasure of an actress.

You know she is far from the best and that her range is rather limited, but she has charisma in spades.

A potent screen presence.

Yeah, I guess you shoulda. It's still funny, though.

I was watching Broken Flowers the other night and at the same time I'm thinking to myself "that's sharon stone? She looks just like Madonna now" my girlfriend blurts out "who's that actress...Sharon Stone? That doesn't look like Sharon Stone."

These women have got to stop handing out their surgeon's business cards to their BFF's.

That said - she was still funny and yes, poignant, in the film. Not in a ha-ha laugh out loud kind of way (this is a Jim Jarmusch film after all) but I thought she gave one of the best perfs in the film. It reminded me that even in a limited role, albeit one with the right director, she can be a potent comedic force.

Now Jessica Lange's face...that's another post entirely. :(
