I cam going to be so glad when it's 2013. After the last eleven years of watching people be stupid over trying to get married or have babies or release movies on the number-same number- same number calendar dates, I'm warn the eff/eff/eff out. I don't think that releasing IMMORTALS on 11/11/11 is going to help its box office draw or even increase interest in the film. Hell, I was offered a chance to see it for free at an advanced screening and didn't bother going because I didn't want to waste the gas money. But hey, it's got a chick in it that we can talk about instead.
Remember when Shia LaBeouf got into that car accident and fled the scene and every media outlet starting talking trash because Lucas was in the car with him and the consensus was that the two were having some fling whilst filming TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN and Isabel was supposed to be Adrian Grenier's girlfriend at the time? Yeah, I might be the only one. But I also recall that when Michael Bay cast her to be the evil sexy in that movie, no one batted an eye or paid her much attention, especially not to the lengths that the RHW scandal went to.
I don't have much experience with Lucas as an actress other than the TRANS2 movie and DAYBREAKERS, which oddly enough I did find her to be above satisfactory in. I've had friends who say that she's good in the little indie movies she makes (i.e. THE WEDDING PARTY) but haven't yet checked that out for myself. Plus, I will definitely check her out in RED DAWN if they ever. f*cking. release. that. movie. (*Hulk level frustration*)
Here's the thing about Isabel Lucas that drives me crazy. She's supposed to be considered beautiful because she has an exotic look. Hey! Check out the chick who didn't thin down her eyebrows!! But I'm tiring of the opinion that being exotic looking is some automatic pass into hotness. When they doll her up, she can look great. But most of the candid shots of her remind me of the way a dog who's been abused cowers and folds in on itself when approached. Because she doesn't exude any level of personal confidence in her carriage, I find it hard to check mark her on the hot column.
What do you think of Isabel Lucas?
