Irony

Friday, April 29, 2011

I'm reposting this article from my original blog: Pfandom.

Isn’t it ironic that Michelle was a ‘virgin’ in 'Dangerous liaisons’ and a prostitute in both ‘The fabulous baker boys’ and Chéri’. Stephen Frears recognizes her versatility as he directed both ‘Dangerous liaisons’ and ‘Chéri’.
Isn’t ironic that Kathy Bates plays the mother of Michelle’s love interest in both ‘Chéri’ and ‘Personal effects’  while Michelle is only 9 years younger than her?
.
Isn’t it ironic that Michelle’s love interests become younger while she gets older. (Paul Rudd-41, Asston Kutcher-32, Rupert Friend-28)

Isn’t it ironic that Annette Bening owes her two succesful movies ‘Valmont’ and ‘Bugsy’ to Michelle; who turned both down. Michelle, in turn, owes ‘Batman returns’ to Annette’s pregnancy.

Isn’t it ironic that Michelle’s nose is crooked and her lips are lopsided, but she’s still the most beautiful woman on the planet?

Isn’t it ironic that she was 6 months pregnant with her son while filming ‘Dangerous minds’ and in that same films she talks about having had an abortion.

Isn’t it ironic that in ‘Hairspray’ she is a racist, while she has adopted a mix-raced girl.

Isn’t it ironic that in ‘Dangerous liaisons’ Michelle and Uma Thurman were supposed to be of the same age, but in reality Michelle is 12 years older than Uma.

Isn’t it ironic that she was the mother of Claire Danes in ‘To Gillian on her 37th birthday’ and she told her husband that their daughter is the most important thing, while in ‘Stardust’ she wanted nothing but kill Claire Danes and eat her heart.

Isn’t it ironic that Madonna was the first choice for ‘The fabulous baker boys’ and Michelle almost did Evita. ‘The fabulous baker boys’ turned out to be a huge success and got Michelle a Golden Globe, while Madonna got very negative critics for ‘Evita’

Isn’t it ironic that she’s supposed to be 40 in ‘I could never be your woman’, but in reality she was almost 50 while filming.

Isn’t it ironic that both Demi Moore and Susan Sarandon, two major actresses, owe their big successes to Michelle. Susan should thank Michelle for ‘Thelma and Louise’ and ‘Lorenzo’s oil’. Demi has ‘Disclosure’ and ‘A few good men’ on her filmography thanks to Michelle, who turned them all down before the parts went to them

Isn’t it ironic that Michelle’s character in ‘Scarface’ says that she’s from Baltimore, while ‘Hairspray’ is set in that city.

Isn’t it ironic that in ‘One fine day’ Michelle’s son watches ‘The wizards of Oz’ and in reality that was Michelle’s favorite movie as a child.

Isn’t it ironic that Michelle has worked with 4 Batmans: Michael Keaton in ‘Batman returns’, Val Kilmer in ‘The prince of Egypt’, George Clooney in ‘One fine day’ and Christian Bale in ‘A midsummer night’s dream’.

Isn’t it ironic that Michelle was as good in ‘Batman returns’ as Halle Berry was bad in ‘Catwoman’.

Isn’t it ironic that Michelle said ‘Fuck’ a lot in ‘Frankie and Johnny’ and ‘Scarface’ (and also in a lot of other movies) and that happens to be Michelle’s favorite curse word.

Isn’t it ironic that Michelle only watches her movies once, while Pfans watch them hundreds of times :)
