Commentary: a couple of things from today’s London papers…
By: Alexa Williamson
Ken Livingstone’s sour grapes (The Metro – IIRC – or one of the London papers)
Firstly, has anyone noticed the ‘Boris watch’ that the Metro has set up? Just saw it today for the first time, which is written by none other than Ken Livingstone. After reading it, it comes across as sour grapes and totally unfair. Give the guy a chance… surely someone as talented as Ken should have more to do than sit around and criticise Boris.
Who’s that girl – airbrushing makes actresses look like each other
Oddly, I noticed that the latest airbrushed picture of Kate Winslet although she is extremely beautiful in it, and I think it does her justice, makes her look like a younger Brooke Shields and Kiera Knightley (evidence below). Is airbrushing really a good idea – perhaps if something is a piece of ‘artwork’ but not if you’re trying to portray a person as they truly are. Eg when Diane Keaton had her film, Something’s Gotta Give, come out a few years ago, the promo image of her made her look like she was 30 years younger than she was and didn’t resemble her in the film at all.
