As I asked earlier today whether or not you cared if our beautiful celebrities are smart, it occurred to me, this video right here is one of the reasons I care. Because acting is an art and not a brainless one and these 25 Unscripted Moments include some of my favorite scenes in all of film history. Many you know, some might be a surprise. Enjoy the video but beware, here be some volatile Drill Sergeant *%$##@ #[email protected]!&*s .
Listen, I’m not saying acting is rocket science, but you should be at least clever in order to pull off a great performance, not to mention a great improvisation. (Always excepting our dear Penny Lane.) Because, forgive me some petty Pretty People Bashing, if a taxi careened into Megan Fox’s shot, I feel like she would either be pancaked or frozen in a Super Pretty Deer In The Headlights sort of way. It’s rather telling, though, isn’t it, that some of the best improvisers in that video (Hoffman, Murray, Rogen, Ermey) are, shall we say, more talented than beautiful? So what’s the point? The point, Hollywood, is I wish you would praise brains over beauty a bit more often. Look at the movie magic that can happen when you do.
Video courtesy of Mewlists and, jinkies, it’s a month old, so you may have already seen it. I also watched their 50 Trippiest Drug Hallucinations video this morning and the Pink Elephants are still with me.
