【Aging Gracefully】之Winona Ryder

電影”Beetlejuice”會開拍第二集的消息已經傳了很多年,一直只聞樓梯響。最近這個傳聞又忽然再次熱鬧起來,如果真的成事的話將會令人十分期待,包括我。1988年的”Beetlejuice”是一套黑色喜劇,小小驚嚇,多多攪笑。當年口碑票房俱佳,刀仔鋸大樹。由當年還是新導演的Tim Burton執導,主要演員包括Michael Keaton,Alec Baldwin,Geena Davis,還有我的女神(廿幾年前),那時剛出道不久的Winona Ryder。

求學時期的我非常喜歡Winona Ryder。喜歡她甚麽? 靚囉!除了靚外,她那種「平民化」及「the girl next door」的形象亦深得我的喜愛。她衣著簡樸,不愛穿名牌。她曾穿著價值港幣百多元的裙出席奧斯卡頒獎典禮。她說沒有興趣成為一顆明星(雖然她巳經是一顆明星),只想做一位好演員。還有,我很喜歡看她演戲,她的戲演得自然不造作。她的演戲天份受到各大小導演的賞識,包括Francis Ford Coppola,Martin Scorsese,Woody Allen等等名導演。她曾數次獲奧斯卡金像獎提名,並曾獲金球獎最佳女配角獎。她勇於嘗試不同類形角色挑戰自己,亦樂於參與很多獨立、小本製作電影。她曾是Johnny Depp的至愛,愛得令他在手臂上紋上”Winona Forever”。

當年萬千寵愛在一身的Winona Ryder外表看似事事一帆風順,但其實內裏藏着的心魔卻一直纏繞着她多年,不知何時會爆發出來…….

1985年當時年僅14歲的Winona Ryder參演她的首部電影”Lucas”,一套校園青春電影。電影成績並不理想,但她的演出卻吸引到她的伯樂Tim Burton的注意,邀請她參與電影”Beetlejuice”的演出。這電影的成功不單令Tim Burton躋身名導演行列,更令Winona Ryder成了名。在戲中她飾演一個性格古怪,能夠與鬼溝通的女孩。 162 more words

It's Your Journey

The people around you do not understand your journey. And that’s okay. They don’t need to, it’s not for them.


Yoga Lessons Revisited: She Like To Move It, Move It

I’ve stretched my body more lately.  To make my joints more flexible, my alignment more comfortable, my muscles more toned.  Doing yoga asanas, that is.  Or my middle-aged out-of-shape reinterpretation of them. 321 more words


The grey shield of invisibility

When I told a friend of mine that I had written  a blog about the invisibility of having grey hair, she told me, as she has before, that I should dye my hair. 371 more words
