One never thinks of flowers as being heavy. But imagine how much Hugo Weaving's "Mitzi" head dresses weighed in The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert.
Lipsynching is hard enough to do well and that's before adding several pounds of distraction atop your noggin. Ouch.
What happened to Hugo Weaving anyway? Is he hiding in Australia?
For a good long while between the sober elven council he kept and his multiplying Matrix villainry his face was hard to avoid at the franchise-happy multiplex. Now, Hollywood lets him talk (V in V For Vendetta, Megatron in Transformers) but his face is suddenly off limits.
Speaking of Megatron...
Last week at Star Trek they showed the Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen trailer and my friend screamed with laughter when Shia LaBeouf recited with all seriousness...
Megatron wants what's in my mind!I know movie stars get paid more money for short contract work than most of us can ever earn in our lifetime but sometimes I think they deserve it. Imagine having to shout such utter nonsense while leaping around in front of blank green screens for days on end. Imagine doing that and delivering it with any degree of disbelief suspended authenticity? It might be a fun job but I'm guessing it's not easy.
