Rachel & Tom
Rachel Bilson and Tom Sturridge last night in New York at the Gen Art Film Festival screening of their Waiting For Forever which was shot forever ago and hasn’t, last I heard, found distribution. Which is a shame. Because it’s supposed to be adorable. And while Bilson, for some reason, is currently the biggest draw attached to it, Waiting is really a showcase for young Tom who apparently delivers a breakthrough performance. Rachel, as usual, well you can take her or leave her.
Except she did look very, very beautiful last night. Really pretty. And a really cute Preen dress that, yes, looks like a bra but on her is not obscene.
I worry about Tom though. And I love him. As noted last summer, I loved him after Pirate Radio/Boat That Rocked. But I worry. It’s not that he’s dishevelled. They always seem to be these days. It is mildly however because of his hair. I think I see some Jude Law happening there. Mostly though it’s his clammy face. And very small pupils. Maybe he’s very tired, maybe it’s the flu. But young actors have a lot of time to kill when they’re waiting for new roles. And at heart they’re all narcissistic, insecure creatures. Temptations are everywhere.
