My husband and I managed to snag a babysitter for this Saturday night, and if I have my way, we will go to see a movie.
The question is...WHICH movie? Brad wants to see Avatar, which is not my kind of flick, at all.
I am leaning towards, "It's Complicated." The reviews for this film,are okay but I love the cast. Meryl Streep is the best , Alec Baldwin cracks me up, and I am a huge Steve Martin fan.
I have to admit, that the thing that most intrigues me is the buzz over Meryl Streep's face. Critics have been applauding her decision to forgo Botox or face lifts and to celebrate her lines and sagging. Meryl Streep has made the brave decision to "age gracefully."
What a daring woman!
Granted, she is an incredibly talented actress with great bone structure and flawless skin, which might make her decision a bit easier, but she does have a point. The camera shows everything, especially on the big screen, as an actor you need to move your face to show expression, when you tweak things too much, you don't look younger, you just look old and weird.
The girl has a point: Exhibit A: Priscilla Presley
Exhibit B: Jessica Lange
and the freakiest example of all...Exhibit C:
Ouch, and just think, these people went through painful surgery and paid big bucks to look like this.
If given the choice, I would choose saggy and wrinkly, over freaky any day of the week.
How about you?
