Our skinnygrape SKINNY on upcoming stars wraps this week, and so does the contest.  Enter here now!

skinnygrape wine launched in Canada in May, offering two great wines with only 80 calories per five ounce serving and to highlight its arrival we’ve been featuring a series of Hollywood actresses (hopefully) coming in to their time. Click here if you’ve missed them and need to catch up. 

More on the wines and the contest below, but now it’s on to our next star.

Last week we talked about Emily Browning.  This week we finish off with Imogen Poots.

I could totally save time and several paragraphs and just tell you that Poots is working with Terrence Malick like she’s the next Jessica Chastain, the end. But then again, no one who starts on a Malick film is ever guaranteed to end up in it so maybe it’s just safer to list some of her other qualifications.

Poots plays Linda Keith in All Is By My Side, the new Jimi Hendrix biopic featuring Andre 3000. Keith played a significant part in Hendrix’s rise, one of the first to believe in his talent, so much that she hustled her ass off to prove it to everyone else. And amazingly enough, she doesn’t take the credit for it that many feel she deserves.

Poots also has a role in one of the two Jeff Buckley projects, Greetings From Tim Buckley with Penn Badgley in the lead. And we’re waiting to see her (but also James McAvoy, obviously) in the highly anticipated Filth, expected to be subversive and funny and hopefully as depraved as it promises.

And as Sarah from Cinesnark wrote last month, Poots is one of three actresses being considered to play Captain America’s love interest in the sequel(s). Sarah can never resist a comment about that name - Imogen Poots. In this case, they say the talent is actually as interesting as the name. I’m making a point of coming back to this in a couple of years to see where we’re at.

Now about this contest!  It’s the final week?  Have you entered yet?  Get on it if you haven’t!

It’s “You, Me and the SKINNY on Hollywood”! skinnygrape will put you and a friend on a plane, fly you to Toronto OR Vancouver (whichever you prefer), and put you up in a swanky hotel for two nights.  Then it’s time to give you the skinny  on the world of Smut as we enjoy a wine tasting over dinner.

Contest runs through September 16, 2012. The entry form, full contest details and links to rules/eligibility are here. Limit one entry per person per day, but you can enter every day until the contest end date if you like.  And I want you, hardcore gossips, to enter often!! Good luck!!

About skinnygrape 

At only 80 calories per five ounce serving, skinnygrape allows Canadians to have their wine and drink it too! Available in Chardonnay and Pinot Grigio, skinnygrape is produced by Roundpetal Wines, for Andrew Peller Limited.  No chemical enhancements were made to achieve the 80 calories per serving in the wine. This is because the cooler climates where the grapes are grown result in lower sugar content at harvest; lower sugar at harvest results in lower alcohol percentages after fermentation, which results in fewer calories. Cooler climates, like Ontario and Northern Italy, where the grapes for skinnygrape are grown, provide the perfect setting for cultivating full flavour wines that have 80 calories per five ounce serving. Both styles pair beautifully with your favourite foods and make a great indulgence.
