(actually, there are multiple ways to interpret that comment .)
Yes, she's good, damned good, but could go a lot softer on the facials...
But like I said, she's an 8, not a 10. If Naomi Watts or Kate Beckinsale had the part, I probably would have been on board from the beginning. Shallow, admittedly, but I'm not about to apologize for that at this late date. I just think that neither of them could have touched her in how well she has acquitted herself in this role.
10's look better the closer you get; 8's don't; in fact maybe just the opposite. She is a little angular, and sadly that's her worst feature. But maybe its a little harsh to dissect someone who still is better-looking than about 90% of everyone else out there. I'm not Brad Pitt, myself (or even his brother Stu Pitt. Get it?)
But she's so good she can convey what she needs to without a closeup. The director should pick up on that and use it to both of their advantages.
