The Mr. and I went to a movie this past weekend. For us, this is rather a rare occurrence. I just find most movies incredibly boring. Does anybody else think Hollywood has lost its edge over the last several years?
Anyway, we went to see The Brave One with Jodie Foster. Decent flick. Not great, not painful to sit through. Very middle of the road. More a diversion than a worthy place to drop two hours and twelve bucks.
As I'm watching, I'm take note of something.
Jodie Foster is ugly. There, I've said it. She looks old and she was no beauty in the first place. Her hair is stringy and flat. She has squinty, tired-looking eyes and a thin upper lip. She has some serious facial lines going. Her hands are manly and her chin is too pointy. I don't hold this against the woman. She is a talented actress and that's what I'm paying to see. But she is ugly.
As we're leaving, the Mr. turns to me with a happy grin on his face. He's happy because we've gone to the show. He asks me to go to the show every weekend and I refuse. So he's thrilled with having seen a mediocre film.
And he says this, "You know, lots of people say you look just like Jodie Foster!"
This does not bode well for his future success in me agreeing to go to the show.
