Designer Manolo Blahnik is a fan of Old Hollywood glamour — and, apparently, Twin Peaks — but he's giving his McKayla Maroney not impressed face to Amanda Seyfried and Anne Hathaway.
Manolo was talking to Interview Magazine about watching and loving Twin Peaks, and it led him into a conversation about today's boring stars.
Manolo: "If you think that the next day, I watched L'eclisse  with Alain Delon and Monica Vitti. Changed my world. What a glamorous and modern film. This is what a genius is—the thing of a genius. The dresses, the tiny heels, the Cardin look, the boys dressed up as Italian gigolos—it was divine, very modern. Antonioni, I loved and I realized: how modern. And, you know, this is the mark of somebody. Then I saw these girls like Sherilyn Fenn and Lara Flynn Boyle that should be working now instead of these anonymous girls. They're all the same. I don't even know Amanda Seyfried or whatever — they're all the same! I try to remember — the only one I remember is Julia Roberts because she's particular. Anne Hathaway . . . Pretty? Yes. Wonderful actress? Yes. But, I mean, I don't even remember her. What is it about her?"
Interview: "She was very good as Cat Woman in The Dark Knight Rises.
Manolo: "As Cat Woman, yes, and I'm not saying she's not beautiful or a great actress. I just don't remember her."
Interview: "But remember how Hollywood went in those cycles in the '20s, '30s, and '40s. There'd be a wave of very strong actresses, and then—"
Manolo: [interrupts] "Nobody, nobody ... just boring. ..."
Do you agree with him that there’s a wave of “anonymous” actresses out there who are all the same? Do you think Les Miserables co-stars Amanda and Anne deserve to be lumped into that group?
