Question of the day

Q: Why would a 43-year-old, Oscar™ winning actress who has worked with Jean-Luc Godard, Krzystzof Kieslowski, Michael Haneke, Louis Malle, Hou Hsiao-hsien, Andre Téchiné, John Boorman, Leos Carax, Philip Kaufman, Anthony Minghella, Patrice Leconte, and Abel Ferrara (with a Olivier Assayas film in post-production) want to pose for the French edition of Playboy?

A: Because she CAN.

Besides, she was looking gooooood when I saw her introduce Flight of the Red Balloon at TIFF this year, so if she wants to get naked- and it's pretty clear she wants to do this, as it's not as though she'd need the money- you'll hear no complaints from me. And it's not like it's Hustler or anything.

Ah, and that look on her face. Take that, bimbo blondes and music video jiggling, THIS is how to look sexy and how to depict sexual desire.

It's always a treat when actresses you like turn up naked somewhere.

Yeah, that look says it all, really. Which is why I didn't feel the need to elaborate on it. What could I possibly add?


It's not like we haven't seen her naked before. But still- I'm curious to see her this time around.

James said...

If a woman is good looking, there aren't enough naked photos of her in existence.

Makes me think I might review "Dan in Real Life" instead of "The Assassination of Jesse James By the Coward Robert Ford" or the "The Darjeeling Limited" this weekend.
