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.

She's the B-list me!

She's the size of 4 Reeses.

She's now a regular on "Dexter". I have a feeling then are going to become a couple.

Her character has already seem Dexter murder someone.

she and Bill Pullman got excellent notices for Oleanna.

OP is right on the money, R5 is a sweetheart, and R6 is just a fucking bitch.

I can't stand the sight of her. She looks like every mean trailer trash bitch in every southern town in the U.S.

[quote]Who Exactly Does Julia Stiles Think She Is?%0D She probably thinks she's a working actress who was offered good money for an easy commercial gig. %0D %0D You, on the other hand, are either an office drone or retail Mary. Either way = 'tard.

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.

Wow, you're a moron. Maybe it's escaped you, but there's nothing to "understand", as we're all unique individuals with different facial structures and features.

Calm down, Julia/r16.

R13, you're far too reasonable for DL.

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.

by Anonymousreply 2111/09/2010

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.

by Anonymousreply 2411/09/2010

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.

I love it too r24, and I am an old fuck.. 43.%0D %0D there was another movie with Heath, right?

by Anonymousreply 2611/09/2010

I kind of love her, and I'm ashamed to admit it.

by Anonymousreply 2711/09/2010

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.

by Anonymousreply 2811/09/2010

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.

by Anonymousreply 2911/09/2010

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.

There's nothing wrong with liking Julia Stiles.

by Anonymousreply 3111/09/2010

A few years there was a semi-lengthy thread about her; in it someone claimed she loves to have rough sex with black men.

by Anonymousreply 3211/09/2010

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

by Anonymousreply 3311/09/2010

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.

I would assume that she has some Russian than true Asian- some of those Russians have Asian bone structure from the Mongols.

I love her in the new "Parenthood" TV series!

by Anonymousreply 3711/10/2010

What do you think of her Born To Dance movie?

by Anonymousreply 3811/14/2010

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.

who plays "lemon drop" with the basket of kittens in a liquor ad? is this the ad you're talking about? to me, lemon drop looks like the chick from heroes/legally blonde.

by Anonymousreply 4011/15/2010

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.

by Anonymousreply 4111/15/2010

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.

by Anonymousreply 4211/15/2010

Though I'd rather see her come back then Leelee Sobieski. Blech!

by Anonymousreply 4311/15/2010

who does she think she is?

an actress who was offered a job for a great deal of money and took it.



by Anonymousreply 4411/15/2010

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 Anonymousreply 4511/15/2010

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.

The grapes are unusually sour this year, aren't they?

"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.

by Anonymousreply 4911/17/2010

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.

I don't like her at all.%0D She's ugly and dumb.

[quote]She looks the part on Dexter but her face never moves.%0D %0D That is just objectively not true. You can say whatever you like about her acting, but you can't seriously be watching if you say her face "never moves." If anything, she's got LOTS of facial tics and twitches going on in that performance.%0D %0D Surely there are enough real things to cunt about, without making up ridiculous lies.%0D %0D

How old are you, r51? You sound like a kid.

by Anonymousreply 5311/17/2010

"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.

I like her deep voice. It's at odds with her pixie-ish face.

OK Julia at R52, how about "Moves when it shouldn't"?

That the right sort of cunt for you?

Don't get bitchy just because you were caught not knowing the first thing about what's being discussed here, r56. You're probably one of the ones who thought Kidman was an acting genius for wearing a prosthetic nose.%0D %0D Nothing you say will ever be the right sort of cunt for anyone. FYI, ignorant asshole.

She's a bitch. She was her generation's Winona. There were stories about her smoking at theaters and restaurants and telling people to fuck off when told the places were non-smoking.

She must have a great agent. She's not 'special' enough to just land work over and over again without a really pushy and connected agent.
