Kristin Scott Thomas

What a great actress!

Blown away by her performances in "I've Loved You So Long" and "Leaving".

Fantastic and very underrated actress.

I'm better.

I love her!

Her performance in "The English Patient" is one of my favorites. Stunning.

And she was deserved a nomination for "I've Loved you so long".

Like Deneuve, she's lost some of her coldness with age. That new sensuality makes her far more attractive now then when she was younger.

This is a great, recent interview with her:

'Most of her interviewers over the years have explained her capacity for scene stealing, for always drawing your eye to her in a crowd, in terms of her cheekbones, the way the camera loves them. It seems to me it was as much to do with her rare ability to appear entirely alone on screen, to be self-contained. In her more recent films she seems able to play that ability off against a new kind of vulnerability. Does she recognise that shift?

"I do feel that," she says. "I am not sure what it means. It's part of all this being less defensive. I have let my curiosity kick in much more%E2%80%A6"'

I'll bet she has a filthy mouth in private and always gets the joke.

by Anonymousreply 506/26/2011

She's great as Nikki Newman, but the character has become someone one-dimensional.

by Anonymousreply 606/26/2011

She must have taken some acting lessons since The English patient - she was fucking terrible in that.

Loved her in that movie about John Lennon !

I beat her out for the role of Dr. Kate Winograd. Therefore I'm a better actress.

From a stripper at the Bayou to the drunken whore of Genoa City, she'll never amount to anything.

Except cashing those alimony payments and fucking every guy in GC on YOUR ranch. Not a bad gig, eh, Mumbles?

Currently doing "Betrayal" in the West End and, by accounts, is brilliant.

by Anonymousreply 1406/27/2011

Saw it Friday; the production is not the best, but she is spellbinding.

by Anonymousreply 1506/27/2011

Love her...very watchable.

by Anonymousreply 1606/27/2011

My only problem with 4 WEDDINGS AND A FUNERAL is that Hugh Grant would choose Andie over her.

by Anonymousreply 1706/27/2011

I saw Betrayal during previews: Scott-Thomas is excellent in it, olooks incredible and is one of the few actresses out there who really knows how to deliver Pinter's lines (to be fair to other actresses, I think HP's style sits more naturally on male speakers). She's great at pauses!

She's let down by the production and the guy playing her lover (Douglas Henshall) who is totally uncharismatic.

I love her - but the English Patient was not her finest hour.

by Anonymousreply 1906/28/2011

Another vote for her in the criminally neglected "Nowhere Boy". She takes a stock role and imbues it with such clarity and intelligence that she easily walks away with the movie.

I loved her in Keeping Mum, which also featured Maggie Smith.

Op, KST may be many things but "underrated" isn't one of them.

She is constantly praised; she gets plenty of due from critics and awards shows for her work so no pity party for Kristin.

by Anonymousreply 2306/28/2011

She was wonderful in THE SEAGULL on Broadway. I love her in GOSFORD PARK, she's so funny in that.

by Anonymousreply 2406/28/2011

Maybe my favorite actress ever. I fell in love with her in Four Weddings and a Funeral. I liked her in The English Patient and most everything I've seen her in. Angels and Insects is different....if you haven't seen it, check it out.

by Anonymousreply 2506/28/2011

Add her to the list of celebrities fluent in French.

by Anonymousreply 2606/28/2011

Oddly enough, I only find her appealing in her French movies. Brilliant and moving in 'I've Loved You So Long' and fantastic in 'Tell No One.' It seems like the Gallic vowels warm up the coldness of her presence in English movies.

by Anonymousreply 2706/28/2011

Kristin, we can see your boobs.

by Anonymousreply 2810/01/2011

First saw her in a British tv mini-series in which she played a nun who left her convent to deal with a family crisis and she was mesmerizing.

by Anonymousreply 2910/01/2011

She looks fucking fantastic.

Excellent in Sarah's Key.

by Anonymousreply 3110/01/2011

I wonder what she would look like if she had let herself age naturally. She looks grotesque now.

That was meant for the Madonna thread. Kristin looks fantastic.

Everyone says Jodie Foster's French is prefect. Well, so is Kristin's:

Just remember Prince Rogers Nelson gave her big break in "Under the Cherry Moon" back in 1986.

R35, KST said that was, by far, her worst performance.

That's true

by Anonymousreply 3703/12/2013

the last movie I saw her in was Ozon's In the House. A cute movie. She was good in it.

by Anonymousreply 3803/12/2013

I like her French stuff, the two mentioned by OP anyway. Are there any where they don't write something in about her character being English? It's amazing cause the accent seems undetectable, but not if you're French.

I wondered if the fact she wasn't French was why she didn't win at the Cesars but Yolande Moreau in Seraphine is a stunning performance, very bad luck to be up against that.

by Anonymousreply 3903/12/2013

She's funny in Salmon Fishing in Yemen.

by Anonymousreply 4003/12/2013

yes, she is R40

by Anonymousreply 4103/12/2013

She's married to a Frenchman.

She's a top actress in France, or at least used to be not so long ago. I've loved you so long did very very well. Saw it twice at the cinema, very effective film.

The guy who plays Her sister's husband in the movie is Serge Hazanavicius, Michel Hazanavicius' brother (director of The Artist).

by Anonymousreply 4203/13/2013

She's gorgeous. I never found her particularly attractive when she was younger, but age has made her very beautiful and sexy.

by Anonymousreply 4303/13/2013

She was the best thing in Oz. Blew Mila Kuntis out of the water.

by Anonymousreply 4403/13/2013

I like KST, there's a vulnerability and sexiness to her face. Same with Juliette Binoche.

by Anonymousreply 4503/13/2013

What's with this OP and her ilk who keep declaring actresses as underrated? Thomas has been widely and enthusiastically celebrated.

Learn another adjective, asshole.

by Anonymousreply 4603/13/2013

[quote]She's married to a Frenchman.

She divorced her gynecologist husband a while ago, if that's the one you mean. He was not an attractive man. In fact, next to him, Cate Blanchett's husband seems a looker.

I do know of rumors that she had an affair on the set of The Horse Whisperer when they were shooting in Montana. No, not with Redford.

by Anonymousreply 4703/13/2013

I love the DL trend of calling well-respected actors who are highly-regarded "underrated."

I doubt you would find any critic who would call Thomas a bad actress.

She may not be the most famous actress in the world, but that is different from being underrated.

In fact, it is usually the more famous actors who are truly underrated.

by Anonymousreply 4803/13/2013

I was captivated by her in The English Patient, not sure why.

Are there any other good Frenchie films with La Scott Thomas besides I've Loved You So Long, Leaving, Sarah's Key and In the House?

I missed In the House which looks good, was less interested in Sarah's Key but that's meant to be good.

One reviewer loved her in ILYSL and Leaving and said she was now the melancholy French movie star that deep down she always was.

by Anonymousreply 5305/18/2013

There's big buzz for KST's performance in the upcoming movie, Only God Forgives. It's directed by the same guy who made Drive and also starring Ryan Gosling.

Check out this clip of Kristin serving up some foul-mouthed Donatella Versace realness.

R53, Tell No One (French title "Ne le Dis à Personne") from 2006. She plays a lesbian, cool to the nth degree.

by Anonymousreply 5505/18/2013

Ooh I do love that film and forgot/didn't realize she was in it r55, but I know of which scene you refer.

I need to watch that again, I rented it from Blockbuster and there was a bad section of it toward the end I had to forward past so missed 10 minutes. Big downside to DVD rentals. Why can't people keep their fingerprints off it.

Kristin Scott Thomas: 'I cannot cope with another film'

[italic]Kristin Scott Thomas has had enough. She has been working flat out for 30 years, and made 65 films: having lived in Paris since the age of 19, she effectively has two careers, one in English and one in French. Even her cleaner thinks her workload is insane. Last September, for the first time in her life, she reached a point where she could no longer go on. "I just suddenly thought, I cannot cope with another film," she says. "I realised I've done the things I know how to do so many times in different languages, and I just suddenly thought, I can't do it any more. I'm bored by it. So I'm stopping." Having always been a workaholic, she now likes to think of herself, she jokes, as a "recovering actress".[/italic]

Sexy, attractive and moody. What's not to love...

by Anonymousreply 5702/01/2014

I prefer UNDER THE CHERRY MOON out of all of her films, being as though I'm a Prince fan and all.
