Never Forget That Ralph Fiennes Once Looked Like This
Look, I’m pretty sure Ive been nursing my Ralph Fiennes crush longer than some of you Harry Potter readers have even been alive. After running to see Hail, Caesar! this weekend — and as Rebecca mentions, this Ralph/Alden Ehrenreich scene is worth the entire ticket price —
I came to the same realization I have many times before. No matter how ridiculously bad the make-up people might make Ralph look,
however handsome or silly or droll the part; regardless of how smart or gallant he plays,
I will always think of Ralph in a very particular way. He’s stuck in my brain, circa Strange Days.
Right after Quiz Show and Schindler’s List, and just before that monolith of blah — The English Patient — that broke Julia Louis-Dreyfus’ Elaine, this glorious cover alerting the uninitiated to Ralph’s official Hollywood arrival came out:
My friends, that is some forkin’ amazing hair.
Before then and since, no matter what he ever has done or will do, that cover is forever etched in my brain. I just want to make sure none of you EVER FORGET.
