Who Exactly Does Julia Stiles Think She Is?
In those Stoli vodka ads.
I never see them anywhere but on LOGO. Late at night, they're on all the time.
Is she a gay icon and no one told me?
Is she a major star and no one told me?
I think of her as a moderately talented, lantern-jawed actress from the 90s. When I think of her at all.

"...Then, explain the success of Catwoman..." - Julia Stiles to a posse of meek Asian woman all about two feet shorter then herself and flanking her as they strolled down Houston St.

Her character has already seem Dexter murder someone.

The question should really be, who does Stoli think she is, and who does Logo think she is.
She's just taking the work. That Stoli wants to give it to her, and Logo wants to air it on their network is no fault of her own and really doesn't require that she think she's somebody.

She has kind of a flat face, with high cheekbones? She looks like she may have some native american in her? She is plain but looks really good when she has makeup on. She is an okay actress, her Dexter performance has been a bit twitchy.

One of the best Punked ever was with Julia Stiles in the museum who is invited to try on "Marie Antionette garment" which rips and then the curator is at her throat for ruining it.

Her appeal escapes me. I don't think I've ever seen a light-hearted side of her or a beaming smile. And I find her looks very strange. Obviously a lot of people like her and/or her work.

'Save The Last Dance' is a fucking classic.

She looks Asian, kind of like how Zeta-Jones looks Latina but isn't, not that she knows of. Stiles looks very Asian, including the flat side face that Asians have. I suspect someone in her background tree fucked or raped an Asian and there you have Julia Stiles. Same with Zeta-Jones, someone in her background fucked or was raped by a Spaniard/Moor and you have CZJ.

She was really charming in "10 Things I hate about You" and had great chemistry with Heath Ledger. That and Save the Last Dance really cemented her popularity with Gen Yers. I don't know why she's played it low key all these years.

I am a Gen-Yer myself, and I must agree with R28 - she fits into our childhoods and adolescences whether we like it or not.

Didn't she take time out to do a degree at an Ivy league school? I thought she be above doing commercials, at least outside of Japan.

Liking Julia Stiles sounds like a sequel to Searching for Debra Winger. Maybe they should make a whole series.

She went to Columbia U., and even graduated. Plus.
David Mamet really likes her. Plus.
She lost points by going on TV and making snotty, dumb jokes about the women who work in school cafeterias. Minus.
She gave one of the better performances in MONA LISA SMILE, which could have been soooo much better. Plus.

What do you think of her Born To Dance movie?
|by Anonymous||reply 38||11/14/2010|
There was a feature about her in the New York Times a little while ago, which said she was directing (and possibly starring in, I'm not sure) an adaptation of "The Bell Jar." I wonder if that project will ever get off the ground, because they've been talking about it for years.

I kinda miss her. She wasn't a typical beauty and she seems intelligent. Unlike the dumb skinny minnies of today. I liked Neve Campbell too.

She's got a pan face. SAVE THE LAST DANCE made me laugh because she talks about how much she loves to dance and whenever she does, she's completely stone faced. %0D %0D She reminds me of a less attractive, less talented, younger version of Diane Lane. She'll probably peak later in terms of looks.

She is completely lacking in beauty, charm, and charisma. Who the fuck keeps trying to make her happen? Every 5 years ago she's given an undeserved opportunity to worm her way into our hearts....and every time she fails miserably. The Bourne movies were a godsend, but even that hasn't resulted in anything significant (Hello? Vodka ads?).
|by Anonymous||reply 45||11/15/2010|
I think she should have turned down the Stoli ad. Asked for a reason, she could have said there are people like OP who don't think she has enough whatever -- looks, talent, charisma, you name it -- and she doesn't want to offend them.

For most working actors, landing a part in the Bourne movies would be lots of success.

"Stoned-faced" is right.
She looks the part on Dexter but her face never moves.
BTW I think she must have some Dutch in her, hence the "Asian-ish" look.

I've always found her interesting. She's not a typical starlet. I'm liking her in this season of Dexter. Also, like someone mentioned upthread Save The Last Dance pretty much ensures that she'll stick around in the heads of Gen Y-ers. That movie is a classic. It still holds up. And considering the way Hollywood works I'm surprised that 10 years later it's Kerry Washington that has the stronger career (beauty endorsements, Oscar nominated movies, etc.) and Julia's really is super low-key.

"That movie is a classic. It still holds up."%0D %0D Your have no taste. The film did not hold up then and it does not hold up now. She is beyond waspy in every role she plays and in that film, even the editing could not mask her clumsy dance moves. %0D %0D That being said, I don't know if she still goes to my gym in Chelsea, but according to one of the guys who hands out the towells, she used to swim there mid-mornings on week days when the place is empty. He said she is very sweet, very nice and is quite pretty in person.
