Well, I've made it pretty clear I don't admire him as an actor or as someone who selects his roles well. While I liked Speed, The Matrix, and A Scanner Darkly, I think his best role was among his first, in Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure. It's still charming, although the clothes look pretty ridiculous. (And he was adorable in that stupid-but-earnest mode.)
It's a shame I don't feel about really fine actors as I do about Keanu. But Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Sean Penn never star in any of my daydreams.
Renner's getting quite the following. You're not the only woman at AW who's an admirer.
The Kid and I just realized something amusing. You know the Half-Plus-Seven 'rule' about how different in ages two people in a romantic relationship can be? (Half the older person's age, plus seven, is the youngest the younger person can be.) We now overlap on a four-year span!
Of course this rule is one that can be broken when it works for a couple, like Russ and Pandora. Or me and Garrett Hedlund.
