There aren’t too many people that we come across, on an daily basis, that we couldn’t find something bad to say about. It’s true – most folks are wretched, self-serving, duplicitous lot… Get into the entertainment field and, well, that number expands exponentially. Jessica Chastain, however, happens to be one of the exceptions. She is just so damn nice we’d likely sprain something attempting to procure some manifested grievance.
Sure she once surfaced a la Bewitched, seemingly out of thin air, across the street from the trailers mind you, while we were visiting the set of the forthcoming film The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby which costars dream-boat James McAvoy and Viola Davis – during their Bronx set days – but we ultimately got a two shot after a brief sprint. And the shots were exclusive!
No harm – exercise greatly appreciated.
We watched Chastain greet awaiting fans outside The Heiress stage door, post a matinee performance, and she took the time to accommodate each and every fans request, all the while chatting about whatever topics they brought up – at times nothing to do with the stage production. And then she provided awaiting paps with a photo-op before saying her goodnight and disappearing.
And we have to say WOW.
That’s some type of gift right there. To do so with an earnest interest in the stranger in front of you without that Halle Berry fake ass snarly smile creeping into the condescending ‘why are you talking to me’ facial expression creeping in. One that to Chastain’s credit, well, she could bank a fortune extending a how-to to other celebrities lesser talented, but with bigger egos.
Case and point: A certain diva presently on The Great White Way goes thru immeasurable lengths to not only avoid photographers hoping to get a photo post her performance in a revival that she is getting horrible reviews for but also fans hoping to have her sign their programs.
Ain’t that some shit?
Well, we won’t dwell too much on the likes of
ScarJo the wanna be serious actress’ and further praise Ms. Chastain’s humble disposition.
And don’t you just love the shoes?
We are ardent fans of James McAvoy. And with yesterdays humidity thrown into an already sweltering day of near all-time high temperature we would daresay that we have proven that ten fold. But no matter, love does for loves own sake. So when when we spotted the 33 year old Scottish actor of Narnia, Atonement, Wanted and Last King of Scotland fame (for all y’all Bronx folk who don’t know) standing directly across the street from us against a fence, well, we don’t mind admitting that we really did think we were losing it altogether due to heat exposure.
Damn it if it was not stifling.
But no! IT WAS HIM! We know not how he just up and surfaced to be standing there, but he did. And it took us a plum good few seconds to raise our camera, for so captured by his presence were we, and start snapping away.
Ordinarily we abhor when someone has this affect on us. Just not proper. But hell if he isn’t dreamy, so we just go for the ride.
And damn if we wouldn’t take a ride on that!
Alas, the set was filming on private hospital property and our mirage was short lived. But we’ll take five minutes of wonderful anytime.
We are also thrilled that McAvoy will be reprising his role in the X Men prequels alongside Michael Fassbender and Jennifer Lawrence immediately following completion of The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby.
The British are coming! The British are coming! No, they aren’t really, we just like the way that sounds. It has a certain declarative happy ending tone to it. But were we to apply it to this post it would have to be geographically correct, like ‘The Scottish are Coming!’ And we don’t mind admitting that this would be altogether an unwelcome sentiment given we are referring to the wholesome-hotness of James McAvoy.
We’ve had a thing for McAvoy for some years now – lost count we have – but our penchant for a taste never wavers. We seldom get to lay our eyes on the yumness that he is, until now.
With his new role in “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby,” a two-parted film being told from both the male and female perspective, presently filming on location in NYC, we couldn’t help but saunter our skinny ass on over by the set for a peep.
Yes, we are that easy that laying our eyes on gets us close to a happy ending! Sue us.
But we thought our world would end when we learned that, upon arriving to the Chelsea location, we had only just missed an exterior walking scene shoot. Tears gathered and everything!
But lo and behold, a few minutes in and out walks the man as if with a halo above his head and his feet barely touching the ground.
Ok, we may be taking a few liberties there but were we afforded such we’d gladly carry his ass back to his trailer and lay him down ourselves.
Don’t you dare judge us!
Congrats to James McAvoy and his First Class cast who debuted at #1 this past weekend with an estimated $57 Million in tix sales. Not a bad start to a regression in the story line. And it wasn’t 3D!
We caught the flick opening night and thinks it is an awesome installation to the franchise. We look forward to More More More McAvoy!
And to all those film “critics” we say ‘bitterness over your lot is not attractive!’
We love ourselves some James McAvoy! And we happen to be a fan of the X Men series. So having the two in one shot is – well – heavenly! The more the merrier we say…
Alas, we couldn’t get to see an advance screening of the highly anticipated sure to be blockbuster but this is one we won’t mind paying for!
On a flip note… What is up with Michael Fassbender?
Brother raced through the step-and-repeat without so much as a sideways glance (if you don’t believe us – take a peep at the video!)
‘Why bother attending if that’s the attitude,’ we ask…? We personlly raced thru rush hour traffice and risked bodily injury to lay eyes on McAvoy.
We understood McAvoy had to race off the carpet due to a previously scheduled promotional appearance but he did his duty for the press line without a second thought.
Also in attendance: Zoe Kravitz, Rose Byrne, Kevin Bacon, January Jones and hotness twink-a-licious Lucas Till.
Damn, that boy is pretty!
An honorable mention goes to the retro dancer on the podium. She worked it out without breaking a sweat – made it look fabulously effortless!
We are tickled that the X Men: First Class trailer is here. Even more so that the due date is June 3rd! James McAvoy is just so plain dreamy, and that Michael Fassbender dude is butch realness to boot.
We have already penned its arrival into our Outlook calendar and have watched this here preview more times than is fashionable. But we ain’t ashamed.
There is always something to look forward to with summer’s arrival!
