Hello everyone. I managed to make it through a long and busy nine-hour day at work today, made even more difficult by my post-Eclipse
The only cure for a post-Eclipse
hangover is yet another viewing of Eclipse
thank you for those gorgeous pictures. Oh dear Lord....yet another movie
we will not survive.
Just did some quick investigating to see if I could find a picture of Reese Witherspoon in character as Marlena from Water for Elephants.
Here she is all glammed up in a red dress for filming with Rob today, supposedly:Love the dress! Sorry Rob's not in the picture
I'm guessing their tux and red dress attire is either for dinner in the train's stateroom, or when Marlena, Jacob, and August went out to the Chicago club. I have nothing against Reese Witherspoon and think she's a fine actress. I absolutely loved her in "Walk the Line" and thought she totally deserved her Oscar, and I think she can bring the necessary spunk and sass to the role of Marlena. No disrespect intended, but I guess I'm a little curious about why the 34-year-old actress was cast in the role of the 21 or 22-year-old Marlena. Maybe movie Marlena will be a couple of years older than book Marlena? And I do wonder what kind of chemistry Reese and Rob will share onscreen.
Hmmmmm....maybe I'm just jealous.
And now that I think about it....and based on his previous roles with women in movies apart from the Twilight saga...Rob could share chemistry filming alongside the phone book.
Back for more later....off to get the kiddos fed and headed towards bedtime so I can post over on the HH Eclipse Spoiler thread.
**EDIT Here's a link to the video "All Yours" by Metric posted on the opening page of the Lex. Awesome video with some gorgeous shots from the movie, so a bit spoilery
This song is catchy and it was already one of my favorites before seeing the movie. But the song's perfect placement in the movie, as well as the fact that the lyrics so fittingly apply to Bella and all that she's experiencing have cemented it as my absolute favorite.
