Listed below are some footage from a newly launched Vogue pictorial that features Kate Moss and Chiwetel Ejiofor. I kind of like them collectively, correct? They seem good collectively. The shoot is by Mario Testino, and the state of affairs is Istanbul. You can see the Vogue slideshow here. I like that Vogue has been recruiting additional predominant males to do model pictorials, and I really feel that is probably one of many increased pictorials I’ve seen. Remember Tom Hiddleston’s? It was horrible!
Anyway, I’m writing about Chiwetel for quite a few causes. First off, CB is now in love with him. She really wants him to win the Best Actor Oscar for 12 Years a Slave, and Chiwetel is principally her Fassbender/Cumberbatch/Hiddleston correct now. I like him heaps too, the truth is, and I actually really feel like we must be supporting Chiwetel further right now. He’s not a self-promoter and I worry that his Oscar advertising and marketing marketing campaign goes to be a sleep and the award will end up going to someone flashier. Are you aware he’s solely 36? I assumed he was older. I moreover didn’t know he’s Nigerian-British. Listed below are some newish quotes from Chiwetel about 12 Years:
On getting the script: “You wait all your life for good scripts, you are learning each factor, hassling people, your agent, you are trying to get a wonderful half. Then this script comes by the use of the door, and likewise you be taught it and it is a good script and an superior half and in addition you assume ‘Can I do this? Am I ready to try this? Is it for me?’”
Plantations: “The plantations are beautiful, very good places. And Louisiana is extraordinary, it’s alive, and the bayou and the swamps and the plantations and the timber. And inside all that, there’s this completely different world – this deep darkness in one of the best ways we’re treating each other. The place was very informative. It helped me understand the world that he was going into.”
He dealt with the story like a “fairy story”: “Alice in Wonderland,” Ejiofor acknowledged. “You go down the rabbit hole and also you’re on this completely different world.”
Steve McQueen on Chiwetel’s eyes: “We talked fairly a bit about silent movie stars, we talked about Valentino and Buster Keaton and the face because of he has to talk fairly a bit with none phrases. Principally it was all about his eyes.” And in these eyes, McQueen acknowledged, “the viewers is seeing a mirror.”
Okay, I like him additional for talking about how he was undecided of whether or not or not he was correct for the place (although I really feel he was SO RIGHT for the place). He’s humble, he’s quiet, he displays respect for the story and the film and the historic previous. Is that enough to win him the Oscar? The LAT at current has him throughout the lead for the Best Actor race, so maybe it’s okay. Nonetheless, I wish to see him loosen up and current some character proper right here and there. Please?
