Four For Friday - She Might Be A Robot

Today is Friday. Just 9 days to find that perfect Mother's Day gift or you will be the worst person on earth at least according to the non-stop radio ads I hear telling me what I should order and if I have not ordered, then I must be the worst person to walk the earth. Did you know the number one day for telephone calls in the world is on Mother's Day. Did you know that for just $19 you can have a wide variety of products sent to your mom just in time for her special day. Yeah, like whatever you get for $19 including shipping is going to make her start crying in front of you. What else? Oh yeah, I will be blogging all weekend and will be revealing a few items from the archives over the weekend. Definitely tomorrow for reveals and hopefully Sunday too. Just two months until the July 4th reveals. If you would like to follow me on Twitter, I am @entylawyer

I have said about ten words to this actress and all I can say is that she gave me a fake smile and quickly decided the wall over my head looked far more interesting. Normal reaction, but everyone else I know who has spent any time with her, finds her to be the most impersonal, cold and not too bright person they have met. People are astonished she is an actress. Foreign born. Probably a B- lister, but only because of an upcoming role, and not because of her past which would probably place her in the C list category. Mostly movies. There is no way she could do television because she really has the wrong expressions and timing for television. No one can understand how she got any of her roles. She has hit the casting couch before but apparently she was just as uninteresting in bed as she was in the role she won for her casting couch audition. Jessica Biel is a better actress, but people hear her name and for some reason I guess they think with that name and that body she is going to be great. SNL had thought about using her at the end of this season because she is promoting a movie but saw an audition tape of hers where she was supposed to be doing improv and couldn't do anything. The only thing she can do is memorize lines. I'm sure she is probably a lovely person inside, but it does not come across on the outside. She dates no one, male or female, although people say she prefers the company of women and that she is uncomfortable playing a sexualized female lead which is what she usually ends up playing. She gave a speech once at an event and was supposed to interact as part of it with other people. She couldn't. She had to keep looking at the teleprompter and it turned into the most awkward few minutes people had ever seen. She really does have a great name though.

Someone promoting a Summer movie,there's Thor, Wolverine, Will Smith film, Superman, what else peeps?

Isvara said...

Alice Eve!

So happy I figured this one out. :) Movie is, of course, Star Trek. Her talk is the Qualcomm Keynote at CES in January. It was a failure of EPIC proportions. So funny. SO BAD. She was AWFUL in that keynote. So worth the time to watch the whole keynote (she's towards the end), because the whole thing is so bad it's amazing.

SKOR said...

Nice work, Isvara! I was totally stumped

SKOR said...

And Fabio too

MontanaMarriott said...

I like the Alice Eve guess even though Enty was wrong about her and TV since she did some work on Entourage according to her IMDB page.

Cathy said...

I had to look her up. In addition to the Star Trek movie, Alice Eve was Erin Go-braless in SATC 2, for anyone who is wondering.

MontanaMarriott said...

Great guess Fabio & lsvara btw :)

VIPblonde said...

Yep, @Fabio got it!! Great job!!!

MontanaMarriott said...

Come to think of it, I can see this being her everytime I have seen her do press for ST, she just appears so STEPFORD WIVES to me. So yeah she could be a robot, lol

shopgirl said...

Daily mail strikes again.

crila16 said...

Never heard of her...have never seen her in anything.

I looked up her keynote at the CES, she was painful to watch. Whose awesome idea was it to send her there? Surely not Paul Jacobs'.

texas rose said...

Good Job Fabio and Isvara (you got the backup evidence and probably how Fabio snuck in there)

Oopsy_Daisy said...

Am I missing how this is a Four for Friday?

Unknown said...

Rose Byrne.

Gayeld said...

I don't think I've seen her in anything, either, but around our house we love her father.

auntliddy said...

Debbie, aka dudar, i dont hv mom either. But i did, and there are moms all over my life, and i celebrate them all. Except the psycho bitchy ones.

B626 said...

+1

Basil said...

Never heard of Alice Eve. But how about Noomi Rapace?

Gayeld said...

1. Actress.

2. Upcoming role.

3. Casting couch role.

4. Horrible public speaking event

?????

Dasha said...

@Montana, Enty's not wrong, he says "mostly movies." That allows for some tv and/or theater. I think it could be Alice Eve, too. The clips of her in Into Darkness are awful. Also, I do think it's someone from Star Trek simply because they are produced by JJ Abrams production company, Bad Robot. Seems like she used the casting couch to get this role?

Maja With a J said...

Alice Eve seems to fit...I had to look her up, but I watched a couple of interviews and she really does seem socially awkward. I don't think she's stupid, I think she's just not good at talking to people. I can't hate, I'm exactly the same *L*.

Donkey123 said...

Alice Eve absolutely,
I remember her from Entourage as the magazine writer that Adrian Grenier was all over. He deserved an Emmy for feigning interest in this wooden waste of a woman. She brought absolutely nothing to the table. Made January Jones seem dynamic.

Anna Nonymous said...

Ceiling Eyes Audrina Partridge??? kidding...

MissSabra1980 said...

But Alice Eve CAN improvise. There are plenty of Star Trek junket footage out there where the woman is a freaking genious at it and interacting with others.

And if you have any doubts, here:

MM said...

Thank you, Maja! I was just going to say she sounds just like me.

lazyday603 said...

I always liked her. She was fine in Starter For 10, Crossing Over and She's Out of His League. The standoffishness isn't uncommon with wealthy people from the UK. Both her parents are famous actors over there.

Tenisha said...

I checked Alice Eve's imdb and she has done TV several times...mainly in Britain. Can't be her.

Anna Nonymous said...

Scarlet Johannsen? It says she dates no one, she did something with Penn, gag*cough*choke))... Im ok I'm fine... married that Ryanvanillainsert20-30blandwoodenactor#370, but the name is awesome, people think she's some hot babe, because of her lip and boob acting. I'd imagine a day on the set for her in her big scene looks like: Lip pout, lip tremble, look down for two seconds, look up for two seconds, blink, swallow, think hard, with blank glazed expression, hold for two seconds, then lose focus by starting to contemplate a career as a custom curtain and valance seamstress, what kind of patterns go together for curtains and valances, florals and plaids?hmmmm...remember you're supposed to be acting, bite your lip, 1/4 heartedly flip your hair over your shoulder, look over your shoulder, push out lip in what your mind you think is super sexy, then gaze at pavement behind that parked taxi to convey wistful longing and memories, look up to actor in scene with you, look left, bite lip, knit eyebrows together, deliver cold dead wooden lines, monotone,look up like you're feeling something serious! anger! resentment! deep thoughts! realise your gassy from the big burrito your lame assistant got you from papa chui's the other day, look at actor... look at director and nod at whatever he's saying, he looks like he's getting angry, alot of hand waving and slamming his fist on that table thingy near him, oh good he's storming off for a cigarette break, I can go lay down now, this acting stuff is exhausting, yawn... I rock."

Sherry said...

Here's a link to her at the conference:

http://brandchannel.com/home/post/2013/01/08/CES-Watch-Qualcomm-Keynote-010813.aspx

scroll down for the one she's in. It's the Star Trek announcement.

She could not even interact with Paul when she said her lines, she had to read the prompter. So much for memorization.

B. Profane said...

This could well be Alice Eve, but the SNL clue is bogus. SNL never vets potential hosts for improv ability and they always book a major star for the season finale.

Pini 27 said...

I love Alice Eve's father, Trevor Eve. He is my old dude crush. Although he's hitting the wall lately...

Dasha said...

Oh, and is this BI suggesting that she slept with JJ Abrams for the role? Wasn't there a blind item about a writer/producer/director who had never cheated on his spouse until he met this foreign-born actress, and then he cast her?

lazyday603 said...

Alice Eve is a graduate of Westminster School London and Oxford University, so I doubt she's dumb.

Jason Blue Eyes said...

Doesn't sound like Scarlett Johansson. She's been on SNL a number of times and has always killed it - in the good way. They love her over there.

"Ya gotta get a chandel-err-a."

texas rose said...

Come on guys- clearly enty is referring to Alice Eve. Don't over-analyze.

Ashley said...

I read this as Nicole Kidman.

I hate holidays, period. Nothing but crass commercialism.

CrazyCatLady said...

Just for fun Carey Mulligan and "The Great Gatsby".

SeƱior Seamhead said...

PugsterMom said...

So when she's on screen does she wear one colored contact lens? I heard Alice Eve has one blue eye and one green one.

annabella said...

Noomi Rapace is a brilliant, brilliant actress. whoever guessed that needs to see the original dragon tatoo movies. bad guess.

Sherry said...

CrazyCat: Do not diss my Carey..I'll meet you out back of the gymnasium now sister!

Mooshki said...

Ugh, I can't stand Noomi. She's dead behind the eyes. Which is why she was great for Dragon Tattoo. Like January Jones is great on Mad Men but nothing else.

Russell said...

Scarlet Johanssen isn't foreign born.

Jenn said...

I thought Carey Mulligan too, the first I saw her actually smile and speak outside of a movie was on ET the other day about the lovely costumes. She seemed so human for 20 whole seconds.
I watched because it said it was about Star Trek. There was a 5 second blip showing the cast overseas somewhere. The liars. -nerd rant over

SophiaB said...

Aspergers Syndrome. Some on the spectrum cannot read social clues. I live with someone who has this. It is weird & disorienting at times. And really annoying.

Charis said...

I am pretty sure Alice Eve was with Rufus Sewell for a couple of years. I hated her for that and that fact that she has awesome parents!

strawberry_13 said...

Not Alice Eve as Enty says 'She dates no one' Alice dated Rafe Spall for a couple of years and was dating Adam O'Riordan up till last year.
