On her life so far: “I’ve played a lot of tricks on myself. I’ve made it hard for me sometimes, especially in my teens and twenties. I had an attraction to drama. Most of us have that, especially if you are an artist— you feel like you are tempted to explore the darkness. I could not be less interested now. For me, the most attractive, charming, cool, fun, interesting thing—how could I call it? A plan.”

      I “heart” her too (as the kids say these days) and agree that she comes off as embodying beauty not just without but also within. However, I wish her acting would get better. Can’t ever remember a memorable role from her movies over any period; although maybe I haven’t watched her full catalogue yet and might be judging her harshly.

      Also, she’s married to Javier Badiem?? Choi. Hot, hot “peepu” just like to cleave to their kind.

      She was pretty good in VickyChristinaBarcelona. Volver was great, if you like camp. And she was really amazing in an Italian language movie called Non ti Muovere (Don’t Move). She’s very talented and convincing as a multilunguist, but traditional Hollywood movies doesn’t seem to serve her well.

      Ahhhhhh…. The penny drops (pun intended). I heard the buzz about VickyChristinaBarcelona and Volver when they respectively came out but never got round to seeing them. Thanks for the tips! 🙂

    Oscar winner, she can also sing and dance, that musical movie “NINE” I was so impressed, foreign actors/actresses not only act but they sing and dance well, Katharine zeta jones shocked me in the movie CHICAGO and in rock of ages.
