Movie Clip Wednesdays: Favorite Foreign Actress

I have a huge girl crush on Penelope Cruz. In fact, #245 on my Wish List to Present to St. Peter: drop me back down to earth to spend at least 24 hours inhabiting her skin. Also: the fact that she is married to Javier Bardem is proof positive that sometimes the stars do align perfectly in this jumbled mess of a universe. Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie? Pfffft. Milquetoast in comparison to the muy caliente that is these two together.

This clip is from one of my favorite movies of the past several years, Vicky Christina Barcelona. As Penelope would say: Jean-iohs.

Pop on over to , Milk River Madman's place for more Fave Fern' Actresses:

the difficult but worth it artist. whats not to love? she is a babe. and it was good that she recovered from the dreaded Vanilla Sky, a movie so so so bad that i want to keel efferyting associated with eeet. grrrrrr

I fell in love with her when she did that Pepsi commercial early in her career and belched at the end. That was awesome. She was good in Blow too. I just have to question her choice in men - Cruise and McConaughey? Two of the most mentally unstable guys in Hollywood.

Happy MCW and New Year!

K9: Vanilla Sky was on a couple weeks ago. I watched part of it again just to piss myself off. Have you seen Volver? Her best role so far, I think.

Buzz: Agree totally re her whack on crack choices in men. But now she's grown up and come to her senses.

What Buzz said. I like Latin women. And Asian women. Don't forget those lovelies from the Pacific Rim. The hotties from Down Under. There's something about Easter European women when I come to think of it. Had a huge crush on Whitney Houston back in the day. I think I cried myself to sleep when she married Bobby Brown. Wait, where were we? Oh, Happy MCW.

No idea who she is.

Jenny said...

Have you seen VOLVER? She's amazing and that's when I forgave her for Vanilla Sky AND "dating" Tom Cruise.

Happy MCW!

Good afternoon Moi,

Well you got me with this one, I don't know who she is. She is kind of cute though.

Happy clip day!

Pam said...

Great choice. She's legit as an actress nad a beauty. Happy MCW! I got nothing so don't even stop by ...

Milk River: Yes, but how do you feel about Laplandian broads?

Troll: The heck you say?

Boxer: She's great in Volver!

Karl: Ruh roh. Are you and Troll two sides of the same person?

Pam: I can always count on your pop cultural savvy!

I'm with Milk River Madman. Which brings up two "men are pigs" notes and one side item.

1. Read a book once that said all guys who go to school at Juilliard immediately fall in love with all the Asian babes. The term there is Yellow Fever, and they'd written a song including the chorus, "I got sushi gonads / gonna feed them to you."

2. Since you imagine inhabiting her skin, that brings up to me one of the funniest (albeit unused in my case) pickup lines: "If I could be anything, I'd like to be your bathwater."

Side note: Great headline from the Onion some years back:

"British Girl Exotic Enough."

She is pretty and she has a great accent so, yes, I quite approve :)
