How dare you! Winslet was awesome in Little Children. I'm going to watch it again tonight. It is that good.

She's mimsy-mumsy sweetness without any kind of bite.

Kate's calmed down since she left that pompous husband of hers.

I love both Kate and Anne.

She does a really good Katie Holmes.

Anne Hathaway isn't becoming irritating, she *is* irritating. I was surprised at how tolerable she was in The Dark Knight Returns.

She's always overdone that coquettish fumbling persona which just screams "please love me as much as I love myself". Her attempts to charm people are cloying.

She's a sexless un-empathetic actress. I find her large flat black eyes that make her resemble a Japanese cartoon very off-putting.

R15 - Have you seen her in Havoc?

Anne thanked the NBC pages in her closing remarks last night on SNL.
Plus, she imitated Katie Holmes again.

Everyone who has worked with Anne in the last five years has let it be known that they couldn't stand her. Helena Boham-Carter hated her. You can even see it in the interviews they did together for "Alice In Wonderland." Anne is really rude in most of the interviews she does. Her interview on NPR really branded her as someone who kisses her own ass. She's really a piece of work.

Anne's first time on SNL as Katie.

Well, I guess that settles it then.

R20 - Good point!

She's in that annoying "i want an Oscar" phase really early in her career. Winslet was up to like 6 nominations before she finally laid it on this thick.

Thank you! I thought it was just me! I don't mind her acting too much (good Claire Danes on SNL) but when she is herself--ugh. She reminds of all those fakey-fakes I was around back when I was in community theater.

She's quite the big-boned, toothy thing, isn't she? But at least I don't see her going all to fat the way Kate has at times.

I voted four Winslets, but now I want to change it to five.

What happened to the Paltrow Scale - does it not have enough gradation?
Because Hathaway doesn't even rate 0.5 Paltrows.
|by Anonymous||reply 26||11/12/2012|
Winslets = feet.
Paltrows = yards.
Robertses = miles.

The Goop is a lot more annoying than either Anne or Kate.

After yesterday, I wish to change my vote to Five Winslets.

Erm , there's a world of difference between Hathaway and Winslet. Winslet is a terrific actress. She bided her time and was never so overbearing as to think she deserved the honor more than anyone else. Kate at least had enough confidence in herself and her abilities to trust that her time would come. And when it did, she had earned it.

Imagine how much everyone would hate Eternal Sunshine of The Spotless Mind if Ann Hathaway played Winslet's role? I mean, c'mon. Winslet is a likeable actress.

R6, that whole movie was such a turn-off. The whole "fuck me, I'm dying" thrust of it was so cheesy and melodramatic.

Paltrow mucked up her acceptance speech but it was only after she'd been Oscared that she become annoying. And at least she has fun with it.
Ann is in a different league.

Paltrow doesn't get on my nerves. I get the sense that her authentic self is oblivious, whiney, self obsessed and entitled.
Affleck and Winslet think that they are cleverly fooling people into adoring them (at least duing their AA cheesing).

From Vogue (link at R25)
On knowing Les Miserables role was hers:
“I knew that someone was going to have to go in there and do something pretty special to unseat me. Sometimes you leave a room and you feel like maybe you’ve left the door open a crack. This time, I knew that I had slammed it shut behind me.”

quote]Sometimes you leave a room and you feel like maybe you’ve left the door open a crack. This time, I knew that I had slammed it shut behind me.
She's talking about doing her job, R39. So she felt that she nailed her Les Miz audition - haven't you ever been similarly proud of your work?
Actors are often needy and insecure (that's the sort of person who develops a skill from childhood at playacting being another character) and they constantly face rejection from casting agents for trivial reasons regardless of their actual acting ability. Hathaway may be an entitled, arrogant bitch (I don't know) but that particular quote says nothing to me other than that she was confident of her acting ability in that specific instance.
Big surprise - she's a professional!

Apologies for mucking up the quote function (bad editing).
