Today's Hipster Update
Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling's highly anticipated film Blue Valentine, hits theatres December 31st and good news for you - the flick's much buzzed about "NC-17" rating got bumped back down to "R." So now that we all won't feel like total creeps, we can go see it.
Honestly, is there anyone cooler than Ryan Gosling? This kid was in the Mickey Mouse Club with Christina, Britney and JT for god sakes. Then, he makes us believe that maybe our ex-boyfriends really were still pining after us in The Notebook. Gosling follows that (and how do you follow that) with playing a real good whacko in Half Nelson and this month’s All Good Things (see this now.) And now, there’s Oscar buzz for his portrayal of a Brooklyn hipster husband in Blue Valentine. He’s dynamic, edgy and street. Amazing.
And another thing - it seems we're finally seeing the actors and actresses from our generation that will stay relevant. The ones that will win awards and make us feel proud for being huge Dawson's Creek fans. Jen Lindley anyone?
Gosling, Williams, Natalie Portman, James Franco, Kirsten Dunst and Anne Hathaway have been killing lately. Move over Meryl.
