I love Olivia Thirlby though, I want to see her in a film noir. I think I first saw her in Flight 93, the Paul Greengrass movie - then I saw her again in Juno of course, I was like - I’ve seen that chick somewhere, and then bang, I remembered. After that I caught Snow Angels, it was a good flick - but it’s the kind of flick you’d watch twice - though.

David Gordon Green is one of the best directors working today but Snow Angels fell flat, still good, just feel flat but that being said, Thirlby is always a highlight.

Well I’ve only seen three of her films and she’s made quite an impact on me. Still have to see The Wackness, though. I heard it was Wack. Meaning cool. Wait is it “Whackness” or “Wackness” - hmmmm.

Another thing is she’s not giving into the whole - “look at me I’m pretty and famous” thing like Megan Fox. She’s letting her acting do all the talking.

That is what I call a yum yum :-*

The Wackness.

It wasn’t very good.

I have recurrent fantasies of double banging her with Peter Lorre.

I don’t know why he creeps into my fantasies, just watching me with those bulging eyes. Damn you, you creep, find your own dream girl and leave me alone! >:(

Juno’s best friend?

Leah was her character in Juno. I think.
