Watched Anna and the King with Jody Foster last night...
For shits and giggles. Also, because the scenery and sets were pretty amazing, but damn, Jody cannot play a hetero woman if you put a gun to her head.
And the English accent? Were there no hot british chicks available?
Could you manage to spell her name right if I put a gun to your head?
Kristin Scott Thomas.
Uh, OP, do you even know what the real Anna looked like? Not exactly what I'd call feminine...
I saw Jodie in Elysium tonight. OMG, She was terrible. If she had just talked like a normal person, she would have been great.
Anna Leonowens was a strange woman. For most of her adult life, Anna Edwards had no contact with her family and took pains to disguise her origins by claiming that she had been born with the surname "Crawford" in Caernarfon and giving her father's rank as Captain.
By doing so, she protected not only herself but her children, who would have had greater opportunities if their mixed-race heritage remained unknown.
Investigations uncovered no record of her birth at Caernarfon, news which came as a shock to the town that had long claimed her as one of its most famous natives.
At one point, she became estranged from her son, Louis, and did not see him for 19 years.
It's interesting to read about her on Wikipedia.
Jody has never been interesting to me. I have watched many of her films and she leaves me cold. I don't enjoy her as an actress. Always see in her a struggle regarding spending her childhood working. Child actors always seemed damaged to me.
JodIE is one of the most wooden, expressionless contemporary actresses Hollywood have ever produced.
Ew, kill it!
What R12 said.
Irene Dunne, the fucking original, bitches.
I've always liked Jodie Foster, even when her insistence on living in the closet annoyed me.
I like the fact that she couldn't play straight and stopped trying. In the roles she can play, I usually enjoy her work.
Now that she's out, I wonder if she'll ever play a lesbian role with a romantic/sexual aspect to it?
the ONLY interesting thing about this film is it's how and where she met Cydney Bernard.
