« Je n’aurais jamais osé imaginer devenir acteur »
Sa sensibilité est aussi tangible à l’écran qu’au naturel et ses performances ne passent jamais inaperçues. Pourtant, il a fallu à Forest Whitaker plus de vingt ans de carrière pour se faire enfin reconnaître. Rencontre avec un des acteurs les plus modestes de Hollywood.
- « Au bout de la nuit » touche un sujet sensible. Pensez-vous qu’il est acceptable de laisser la police ou nos dirigeants politiques être au-dessus des lois afin de protéger les citoyens ?
Let me start from the begining, all started with my new glasses. I had the eyes examination on Wednesday morning and I knew that my glasses were not strong enough as I couldn’t read small characters anymore. So during the eyes examination I asked the specialist if my problem was due to my PC, as I am an IS girl, I am working with a computer the whole day long. The lady said: "no, no, it has nothing to do with your PC, you are just getting old". Thank you for reminding this to me Madame !!!
I was terribly angry when I left her so I decided to go to the City to choose my new glasses. I found lovely ones there and informed the lady that I needed progressive glasses to be able to see far away and to see closely (to read) so I gave her the prescription of the specialst. I also told her that my daughter needed glasses too and Jordane chose nice black Dolce & Gabana glasses. After that, the lady told me that she was going to check the total amount for the 2 glasses and would gvie us a reduction of 10%. I was very happy to hear that and had a big smile on my face and when she gave me the total price I nearly had a heart attack !
800 Euros for my glasses and 356 Euros for Jordane’s glasses! Jesus, I couldn’t speak anymore and I said "do you accept Visa card ?". Fortunately she accepted it, pfeew. Unbeleivable, it’s nearly the same price I paid for 2 weeks holidays, all inclusve, in Creta in July !
As I was still in shock two days after, I needed some Keanu to comfort me so I decided to go to the theatre yesterday evening. And that’s where my excellent adventure started. After I bought my ticket, I asked the young girl at the entrance if it was possible to have a Street Kings poster. This nice girl told me that I needed to ask this to her colleague "Chantal" who was standing next to the snacks. So I went there and asked "are you Chantal ?". She answered "Yes, what can I do for you ?". So I told her that I had a Keanu Reeves fan site and was wondering if it was possible to have one or two Street Kings posters for Keanu’s fans. You should have seen my face when she said "sure, just wait for me here, I will be right back with your posters". When she came back she had two big posters for me and I had this stupid smile on my face. I asked her if she wanted some money for this and she said "no, no, it’s free". Woaaaaah, I suddenly completely forgot the price of my glasses, I was floating on a cloud.
As the movie was going to start I rushed to room 4 and when I was just sitting down I realized that I was alone in the theatre, just me and Keanu on a big screen for two hours, sigh*** After 5 minutes a young couple joined me and when the film started another couple arrived, so we were 5 in this place. I was so surprised to see that we were few people there on a Friday evening and I was so sad for Keanu. I really thought that this movie would attract a lot of people.
To all Belgian people who will read this post: GO SEE IT !!! It’s a wonderful movie. It’s an exciting thriller which keeps you breathless until the surprising end.
In this movie the cops are more dangerous than the gangsters themselves and, after you watch it, you are questioning yourself: Is it better to kill the gangsters than putting them into jail if you are sure that they will be released a couple of weeks later ? Does blood wash away blood ? Where is the border line that we cannot cross ? Should we protect the cops when they cross the border line ? Should we violate the law to protect innocent citizens ? That’s all around justice.
I want to highlight the great performance of Keanu Reeves in this movie. He had a dark and hard character and could handle it from the begining till the very end. It’s probably the most difficult charcater he had in his career and now he can prove to the whole world that he is a great actor.
And for the people who still think he is wooden after watching this movie, they should do the same thing I did: BUY NEW GLASSES !
Keanu Reeves arrives at a commercial shoot at the Brooklyn Banks for Breast Cancer Awareness. Certainly the most random thing I’ve ever seen there. He was pretty chill.
|Actor Keanu Reeves with Jillian Alps, general manager of the Heritage Inn in New Milford.|
The general manager of the Heritage Inn on Bridge Street played hostess to film stars Keanu Reeves, Alan Arkin, Winona Ryder and Robin Wright Penn on Monday when scenes from the movie "The Private Lives of Pippa Lee" were filmed in town.
The film crew rented four of the property’s 20 guest rooms for the day so the actors and actresses could relax between takes. All gave autographs and were gracious with the staff, said Alps, who couldn’t pass up getting her picture taken with Reeves.
"He was more than happy to sit down with us," she said, describing him as "easy going," "low key" and a "nice guy." "As soon as they walked in the door they shook hands. We had breakfast waiting."
It was the second time the bed and breakfast, a former tobacco warehouse and feed and grain store listed on the National Register of Historic Places, has hosted a movie crew. Last year producers and actors with "The Six Wives of Henry Lefay" stayed at the property during shooting in town…
