Gwyneth and ME
I like Gwyneth's mom Blythe a great deal. She was in To Wong Foo with Love from Julie Neumar's, and also stars with Gwyneth in Sylvia, which we were gonna watch last night. Daniel Craig, more recently of Bond fame etc, plays the pathetic and rotten poet husband who causes her to stuff her head in the oven and turn on the gas.
ANYWAY, it is a long standing fact that I cannot bear Gwyneth. I try. But Shakespeare in Love???? Maybe the most pretentious movie ever. I wanted to enjoy Sylvia, I really did, because Sylvia Plath's story is fascinating. Daniel Craig may have had irritating hair, that's a minor thing that can be changed, but there is something about Gwyneth's voice and demeanor that is like fingernails on the chalk board. She just sounds so smug, so snooty, so beautiful-blonde-born-with-it-all.
So, I wandered off and left my wife to endure the rest of it.
