I may never love a thing as much as I love the Jason-Statham-was-in-an-Erasure-video-painted-silver thing.

Anna's not actually dating Alfie Allen.From what I've read, she is dating Ben Richardson (Beasts of the SW and Drinking Buddies cinematographer), who has a resemblance to him.Someone saw a picture of them together, and the Internet did the rest.Haha.

That's a lovely dress.He forgets to mention Molly Maginnis, the costume designer.You would never do that!;) Anyway, it's true that Broadcast News never gets mentioned these days.

I feel that Rachel Weisz should play me in the movie about my life and so I can easily identify with her.That means that I get to play Michael Fassbenders wife and then come home to Daniel Craig.Life is good!;)

Seems it'd be wise to cut this revival of Cabaret loose, creatively.Emma gets to play around and cut her teeth, but a mid-run takeover seems beneath a star her size, y'know?Especially when the woman she's replacing wasn't considered all that successful in the role.Isn't this when producers get the Gina Gershon or Molly Ringwald or Lacey Chabert?

I hope she does well and that there's a production/revival she can open in the future.
