    I don't know how to post pics... but the new cover of Vogue is stunning.

    I am not a fan of Ms. Paltrow... but she looks amazing on the new edition. Everything is right about the cover. It is the first celebrity cover, and cover of a fashion magazine, that I think has been wonderful in a long time.

    The editorials are pretty good too. I love the couture layout...

    if you are already wary of ms. paltrow's personality... please refrain from reading her interview.

    she is soooo clueless. it is absollutely amazing.

    i can't believe that she only read and heard of the bell jar after someone told her that she looks like sylvia plath... which i must interject and say is the furthest thing from the truth.

    and another thing... ugh... she is just too much.... the bell jar is the biggest coming of age story for female readers. everyone picks it up in their early high school years. it is like catcher in the rye. and she had the nerve to say that it was too "dizzying"? yeah. the bell jar is such a hard read. what a joke!

    oh... and then the best. since frieda obvioulsy has spoken out about the movie being made with ms. paltrow and hates that she is characterizing her mother... and has disallowed all of plath's work from being used in the film... i think it is odd that ms. paltrow keeps wish washing over the politics of the film. she says that she understands frieda's problems, but at the same time is an "artist" and that she feels the obligation to inform the public about plath's work.

    ok???? does anyone else have a problem with actors acting as though they are teaching the public about literature???? give me a BREAK! who is she to condescend to? she hadn't even read plath's work until someone said that she looked like the author! and she thinks that she is an authority and can teach US about Plath?????

    My god! Paltrow goes on and on in this interview about her father, as she did in the allure. she talks about how she is a daughter too and that she just lost her father.

    so... to me... this all links back to Paltow's statement about informing the public about plath. ummm. well, if she feels that it is an artist's, oops, i mean actor', duty to teach the public.... then i am sure that she won't mind when a GP bio pic is made staring Tori Spelling and the film covers the last days of Bruce- her dearly departed papa.

    i just can't take these ridiculous stars anymore. they are too much.

    and another thing.... i am SICK of fashion magazine editorials about lit and art. the author of the magazine article had the nerve to compare the sylvia plath and ted hughes love story to elizabeth barrett browning and robert browning????

    Plath recently killed herself in the same house that her children were in. Her children are still alive and have an immediate relationship to the media and how their mother is portrayed. the Brownings have been dead for almost 150 years. There is no traumatizing history to be exploited... they certainly don't have children argueing against the making of a film that portrays plath as a beautiful scholar. Heck, Plath was never a beauty. that is always something that she wrote about.


    This film is going to be a disaster. A travesty... much like Nicole playing Virginia Woolf in the sappy disaster the Hours.... Yikes!

    philosphy is a good subject, astrid...

    but i have to learn to not read star's views on their work.


    my art history degree and lit degree get in the way too much... and i just get so mad.

    although, i still say that the cover is stunning.

    they take is soooo seriously too... as though they are teaching the world about "human nature" and all that crap. i love when they talk about their work on inside the actor's studio... that is such a laugh.

    all actor's teach me is how i don't want to dress. :)

    me too, lele :flower:
    i liked Gwyneth when she was still virtually unknown & played small parts (Ms. Parker & Vicious Circle, Flesh & Bone, Hook). She's very talented & can be exceptional with the right director & in the right script. I like her not only because of her style or looks, but because she tries to balance commercial films with less main stream movies. Of course, she had her share of flops (Bounce,
    Possession), but that's OK. At least she does not do the same kind of films all the time, like
    Cami Diaz or Julia Roberts (although both are talented & beautiful). Remeber her in Emma or Shakspeare in Love, Royal Tenenbaums or Talented Mr. Ripley, she's so different in all these films and yet she's still Gwyneth Paltrow. And these parts were not easy, as playing Sylvia is not easy at all.
    I don't agree that all girls in high school read Bell Jar, it's not like Great Gatsby or Mrs. Dalloway. Sylvia Plath was more of an "elite" poet & writer, so to speak.
    Can't wait for October issue! :heart:
