Be nice like Hugh

Am sure by now you’ve heard the news that Ryan Reynolds has beat out Pips Timberlake and Bradley Cooper to play the Green Lantern. Ugh. Extremely UNimaginative casting, non?

This of course will give Ryan more reason to moan and groan about being famous and harassed by fans. Because he continues to choose roles that are completely independent of a fan base, right? You want to be a superhero? You want that movie to sell? It means you shake a lot of hands and kiss a lot of babies. That’s the tradeoff for a multi multi MULTI million dollar contract. That’s what Hugh Jackman would do. That’s what Hugh Jackman does.

Hugh Jackman is SO nice.

Here he is, a family weekend, celebrating his daughter’s 4th birthday. Look at him. He has a smile and a kind word for everyone: the doorman, the driver, the neighbours, even the paps will tell you that he is unflappable. He just doesn’t sweat it. He understands his own job, he understands everyone else’s job, he understands it’s part of the game, and he is happy to play it without complaint.

Meanwhile, this is Scarlett Johansson’s face under a scarf at LAX on Saturday.
