Archives For Snapshots

When visiting IMDb, you’re reminded that Jennifer Beals is turning 51. 51! The last time I saw her on TV was in her small role in Castle (which my mother loves), and I have to admit that I hadn’t follow through any of the actresses post-The L Word. And to be honest, I was much too preoccupied with Shane and her love life to care much for Bette.

But alas~ TCM Latin America has been running Flashdance quite a bit, on top of the numerous references to the movie this year (eg. Cuban Fury, Happy New Year), so I clicked on Beals name wondering what she’s been up to, and was eventually directed to this video of the Flashdance screening celebrating 30 years of the movie. I was shocked, she looked freaking amazing. Like- I’m even jealous of how good she looks in there. She even looks better on that clip than this photo from the event~

Most people need expensive lights to be well-lit and make you look like a million bucks. Jennifer Beals looks like ten million bucks in that poorly-lit shot for the fansite. I also wasn’t aware that she and my bias Olivia Thirlby had made a movie together. Now I have to find it.

 

Gotham Awards - Uma Thurman, Mira Nair, Tabu
So this is where that photo comes from,” was the first thing I said when I ran into this photo of Mira Nair celebrating her Gotham with Tabu and Uma Thurman. You can also get a sense of how tall Tabu is when she’s not dwarfed by Thurman, who officially is 1.81m but maybe taller (plus, heels). And it’s not because Uma is leaning to one side either, ‘coz on this pic where she’s much closer to the camera or this other more general shot, she’s not dwarfed either.

Also how sweet is Tabu with Ang Lee?

And… I can see where Tabu gets her stern look. I’ve seen her complain about journalists and paparazzis not picking better photographs for the posts and articles they write on her, and from the short time I’ve followed her, I can see what she means. It’s like when CCTV picks photos of John Kerry. LOL

Having said that… Screening photos are such a waste of time coz they always look like horrible snapshots because these things are never lit, so you get all that harsh light of the flash bulb.

I don’t think you get to see this relaxed version of Joan Crawford very often. It’s so freaking rare that she allowed someone to photograph her like that, even if it was for Life Magazine. It’s almost as if early 1930s Joan was back.

A couple of hours ago Zhou Xun updated her Weibo page with a photo that currently has more than 150k likes, over 90k forwards, and a little over 40k comments… and that’s only counting on her page without other people’s forwards (I’ve seen Leehom and Shu Qi well-wishing) and other media.

So Zhou Xun got married without fuzz [1], just like Gao Yuanyuan did with Mark Chao. Or maybe it seems without fuzz because I don’t bother reading celebrity gossip in Chinese… but I’ve seen people who do follow Chinese gossip surprised.

In any case… congrats Zhou Xun and Archie!

So apparently BiBi held a concert in Chengdu recently, and I went on a spazzy search because- Dude, BiBi in dreadlocks. Apparently, some of the wardrobe worn (at least the two more androgynous ones) were Yohji Yamamoto designs, including the one she’s wearing while in dreadlocks. It’s like- too many things are perfect in that combination.

There are loads of other photos and snapshots of the concert in this Weibo hashtag: #周笔畅unlock成都演唱会#

All photo credits too all the people with their watermarks. All you lucky sons of guns.
