    Wait aren't Renee and Gwyneth the same age?!

    I was talking about Meryl Streep in the movie One True Thing for which she was nominated for. I thought she was the weakest of the five that year, not Paltrow.

    Well, if they're watching children's programs in French or Spanish (of the Sesame Street/Electric Company variety), they'll probably learn some of the language.

    That said, Gwyneth does seem incredibly pretentious.

    OMG, thanks to this thread I've discovered Goop! (I think she misspells the name though, what would be the British spelling? "Go-op"? "Goöp"?) She should get a special Oscar for the most epic inadvertent comedy ever! :lol:

    If A Clockwork Orange is remade, the film the main character is forced to watch over and over should be something starring Gwyneth, Renee Zellweger, Madonna, and Lily Taylor. Two overly pretentious bad actors, and two bad actors who look like narcoleptic lemon suckers. Dianne Wiest can be the mom, but I sort of like her.

    I think even Tori Spelling is a better actress than Miss Gwynnie, who is in turn quite a bit better than Madonna, but less talented than Renee, who is slightly less irritating than Lily.

    Then again, if Point Break is on TV, I never miss it. You're going down, Boddhi.

    Did you not see I Shot Andy Warhol? Lili Taylor was mind-blowingly amazing in that.

    Cherub721 YEAH!

    Maybe she was inspired by Olga Markova's rendition of "Let My People Go." :D

    A Perfect Murder is airing tonight on Style at 10:30 EDT (not sure about when it would start in other time zones), but I figured I'd let it be known that this gem is on for anyone who is game for some entertaining snarkage of Miss Snooty McSnooterson's acting.

    After seeing this movie, I can honestly say that I've never seen an actress do a better portrayal of a limp (and whiny) dishrag come to life.

    Is Gwyneth still promoting her crazy cleansing diets, even after getting diagnosed with osteopenia?

    Hopefully not, but my own mother refuses to eat more and try to gain weight, even after she was diagnosed with full-blown osteoporosis in her early 50s. :shuffle:

    Which would you say are some of the poorer limp and/or whiny dishrags performances that you've seen? :p
