'revenge' is the hour long drama on abc that is my crack cocaine.
we're without new episode until april; however, ann told me all the episodes were available for streaming.
meanwhile, as i wait, i do some of my heavy reading - the new 'vanity fair.' (kids, that was a joke about it being heavy reading.) have you seen the new issue?
julia roberts' tired face is on the cover. oh, for the days when she was forever sneaking with susie sarandon - and, kids, i'm talking years before they made 'step-mom' together.
they were gal-pals forever and a day. in fact, when the keifer engagement went kaput, julia went away with susie. strange no 1 brought tim robins along, isn't it?

V.F. When you were playing Joanne Herring in Charlie Wilson's War, did you talk to Mike about your character? Marlone Brando actually wrote out little autobiographies of his characters' lives up until the movie starts, so he had a sense of who the person was.
JULIA: Oh, to have that kind of time! When we did Charlie Wilson's War [in 2007], obvioulsy we had the book, and we had Joanne as a resource. She's such a very strong, visual person. Her personality is very clear and distinct; I think that I caught on to it pretty quickly, and it just required a lot of makeup and great hair.
she can't make time to do a brief character sketch? and she lets hair and makeup do all the work?
at least we know why her roles have the sameness and are yet again reminded that she's 1 of the worst actresses in the biz.
she praises alan j. pakula in the piece.
he had to go elsewhere every time darby (julia's character) changed emotions because she can't do that naturally or realistically. just going from joy to anger, for example, and alan would have to cut away from her and then come back after the transformation because she'd make this really ugly face that looked like she'd been hit across the face.
let's close with c.i.'s 'Iraq snapshot:'
