Spotlight/Shoutout: French People

So I think I just bombed a french exam, but whatevs...since my mind is on French today, here are some French actors that have gained some fame. ;)

Gerard Depardieu

The King of French Cinema


Daniel Auteuil
Possibly the greatest man to come from French Algeria, Screw you Camus! Daniel stars in great films like "Le Placard," awesome flick!



Julie Delpy
Talented young individual, but I will forgive her for "Two Days in Paris." B O Ring


And!!!!

This random French comedian who messes around with with stereotypes, and is moderately funny. C'est tres amusant (pas vraiment).



QATFYG:
Do you have a favorite French or Belgian actor?

  1. You completely skipped Gregoire Colin, which probably means you're not too familiar with Claire Denis' work. Although I am not a super huge fan of him, he is a good actor and has been in some pretty important films. Like I've already mentioned he is associated with Claire Denis. He has been in at least half of her films, which shows his versatility, since her films are constantly changing, but nevertheless important and influential. This may sound a bit more about the director Denis, but the two go hand in hand. He has the ability to do some many different roles. I have seen him twice in two different films and could not tell it was him till after the fact. He's not my favorite. I also don't have a favorite, but he is a noteworthy french actor.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawson, send it

Appropriate Holiday Gift Ideas for the Single Lady

While some people may see it as a drag, there are plenty of benefits to being single during the holiday season. During this time of the year, there are tons of parties you can attend that you may not have had the opportunity to if you were in a relationship. There’s also not as much stress on you as a single gal during the holidays because you don’t have to shop for your partner and extended family members  or  stress over where to eat Christmas dinner.  Not everyone sees the bright side of being fancy free during the holidays, and, tragically, they aren't afraid to let us single ladies know. Not only are single women subjected to even more harassment and ridicule during the holiday season, they’re also given the most obnoxious gifts by those who can’t comprehend how anyone can be both happy and single. Whether it’s a self-help book (desperately) trying to reinforce how great is to be single or the gift of a year-long subscription to Match.com , single women are presented with
