Eloi Eloi!


Kate Beckinsale is hesitant at the idea of a (public) appearance as Wonder Woman for the same reason she turned down a Bond Girl role. It turns out... oh, so difficult to type these words... she is concerned about embarrassing her family.

"I do feel like I've embarrassed my daughter enough, and notice you always have to be in your underwear at some point in a James Bond film. I'm becoming elderly, for that sort of thing. Maybe not me so much, but I think once the child gets into third grade…that was the whole question with Wonder Woman, because it's still essentially underwear. So I don't know, but…you never know."

Catwoman remains a possibility for Beckinsale "Because I have a thing for black latex. I do, I know we all do." So there remains a star to be seen through Mordor's gloom.

On the other hand, it's nice to see Hollywood types be realistic about aging and not constantly yearn after the Cher / Madonna Fountain of Ridiculously Artificial Youth.

Absolutely. My judgment in this matter is somewhat impaired, however, as I would quite cheerfully rather more/less of Beckinsale as the case may be.
