GOSSIP - Porca V-acca! Morena Baccarin eletta donna più sexy (non solo dei telefilm) del mondo da "Esquire"

Articolo, foto e intervista tratti da "Esquire" USA di Ottobre

Today, under the lacquered blue-enamel sky, in a black-belted black dress, stepping out of the nap-time grasp of an SUV, Morena Baccarin is clearly — honest-to-God, and to every vision of woman ever beheld, without a hint of exaggeration or intended pain to anyone who's borne the title before or will bear it hence — the most beautiful woman in the world

Never mind where — west and north of L.A., in a kind of near-desert, in the parking lot of a wine bar, her jet hair coated by the brightness of a midafternoon sun rigged high. The world behind her falls away quickly enough. With every step across the careless splash of asphalt, her unlumpy purse hooked over the sinew of her shoulder, finger dangling her keys, Baccarin smiles, which is of course part of why she's the most beautiful woman in the world today.
She keeps on: smiling at something, if only the equation of the afternoon that was or will be. It's hours till dark, and she looks every bit the glorious occasion, the kind of woman you want to take with you, the kind who could bring fortune in places where things are happening.
So maybe it's a little bit like luck. Maybe she wants to go to the track? To drowse for a while in the owners' boxes? No. "I'm terrible at gambling," she says. "I don't have a mathematical mind. No luck, either. On my last movie, I lost my entire per diem at a riverboat casino. No, no. Let's drink wine. Let's go down." She means down into the cellar, the damp dark of an otherwise deserted bar. She knows what she wants — to start in on the wine flights and the cheeses — and knowing is certainly a part of beauty, too. So, down the steep staircase, heels tonk, tonk, tonking the concrete, sliding into a seat against a cold stone wall — the whole way laughing. All the time with the pleasant, not-too-loud laugh of hers. This is just one more reason she's the most beautiful woman in the world today. "I drive to a cellar on a bright day, sit here with a lot of wine and cheese, and tell you all about my gambling right out of the box," she says. "I'm just going to get in trouble." The Brazilian-born Baccarin, age thirty-three, was until recently — and maybe still is — best known for her role on the short-lived 2009 ABC series V, on which she played the doe-eyed, pixie-cut alien queen with an excellent Q rating. And removable skin. It's her iconic role to date, save perhaps her part on the culty Firefly, which turned the heads of a thousand, thousand fanboys. "It's a coincidence," she says of starring in two major science-fiction projects. "I really look for strong female characters, or weak female characters, for that matter — something defined, tucked inside a great story. Reading V gave me straight-out goosebumps. You know, not knowing who your neighbors are, discovering that you live in an occupied state. Firefly I grabbed. We all thought it would last."
On this afternoon, the most beautiful woman in the world looks relieved when she mentions that she's just about to start filming the second season of Showtime's Homeland, on which she plays what is quickly becoming her newest most memorable role: the suburban wife of a returning POW and possible Al Qaeda sleeper agent. The first season didn't test her acting chops much, but she's optimistic. "This season, I finally get to stop crying into my pillow," she says. "So far there's been a lot of crying, a lot of cooking dinner, and more crying. I mean, I like dishwashing fluid just as much as any other gel, but you know, you gotta move on." Here she takes an immodest gulp of wine, falls into her modest laugh, holds a piece of hard Spanish cheese in her teeth like a man chewing a cigar stub. "I just read the first episode of the season, and there's this emergence of the political life. My character likes the meeting of people, the rubbing of elbows, just the possibility of getting to Washington. She's coming to life this year."
You never think you'd say this about the most beautiful woman in the world, especially alone, underground, bound up in three leaps of wine and more, but Morena Baccarin's hair appears to be in transition, caught somewhere between Alien Queen and Weepy Soldier's Wife. What happened to the pixie cut she featured in her brief but epic run on the more recent resurrection of V?
She takes a fistful of hair, then lets it go. "Here's the story of the pixie cut: Growing up, I had long hair. Superlong. It was that way forever," she says. "Then I did a movie that called for short hair, and I kept going back and forth — cut it, or wear a wig? On and on. Until my boyfriend at the time said, 'Stop. You need to cut your hair because you're going to look ridiculous with all that long hair pushed up under a wig.' And for a while I thought, Shit, I'm going to look like a boy, I'm going to have a fat face. But finally I said fine. I treated it almost like a dare. And that short hair was one of the best things I've ever done in my life. For myself, I mean. It was liberating and it was fun. And I kept it for four years. Now I'm growing it out for Homeland."
She takes another sip of wine, blinks a long, slow blink, gives a little shake of her head. "I'm just sick of it. You know?"
There is a picture of her, widely spread on the Internet, with blond hair. That, too, one suspects, had to be for a movie.
"That was boredom," she says. "That was summer. That was blonds have more fun."
Do they?
"Not really," she says. "Brunettes are far superior."
It's hard to argue with the most beautiful woman in the world. Not that there's any fight in the afternoon. Even in an empty room, in darkness hidden from a sun-bald day, she is without tension, without a sense of anywhere better to be. "This is good," she says. "I spent the afternoon with my hands in the dirt, working on my succulents." What are you gonna do? It sounds like a word that both fits perfectly and isn't what she meant at all — succulence. And she is smiling, because she knows it. The word itself becomes a kind of laughable currency for her.
You gotta love succulents.

 "You do, right? I mean they grow anywhere. They don't need anything. Not here, anyway."
Where did you come from? You live close to this place?
"I do. I live around the corner."
Are there lots of succulents between here and there?
"Mmm, yes. There are succulents everywhere. This is a succulent neighborhood. They like the air, the lack of water."
Why did you drive here?
"I almost walked, but I had these heels on. And I just didn't think I could manage that for you."
This goes on. Later she talks about acting. Serious stuff, about working with Philip Seymour Hoffman as an understudy for Natalie Portman in Chekhov's The Seagull, in Central Park. She praises her colleague Claire Danes for her work on Homeland. Ho hum. Then every once in a while, she goes back to succulence/succulents. It makes her laugh, this word salad. More wine is ordered. Evening comes, and still the most beautiful woman in the world is only too happy to play. That's more than just a part of it. It's probably the whole deal, the very reason she won the title all those hours ago.

PICCOLO GRANDE SCHERMO - Clamoroso al Ciba-legs! Christina Hendricks diventa fetish per Ryan Gosling al cinema
When it was announced that Ryan Gosling would be directing his first movie, a fantasy film that he wrote, and he had cast Christina Hendricks in the lead role, the project quickly became Vulture's new favorite movie before even a frame of footage had been shot. "That's a good place to start!" enthused Hendricks when we caught up with her today at the Toronto Film Festival. So how did the movie come about? Did Gosling ring her up and say simply, "Hey girl, I've got a script for you?". "I don't think he said 'Hey girl,' but the rest of it's true," laughed Hendricks, who says it was "crazy flattering" to get the offer. "His first big film, and he could have gotten anyone!" she said. "It was very heartwarming and the biggest compliment ever." According to Hendricks, Gosling first got in touch with his Drive costar a few months ago to say that he was writing a script with her in mind, and would she be interested in reading it? But that wasn't all: "He sent the script over in this cool box with an interesting little key, and cool artwork in it," recalls Hendricks. "It was like the full package! And then I read the script and was in love with it, so I called him back and said, 'Yeah, please.'" Entitled How to Catch a Monster, the film casts Hendricks as a single mother "supporting two children and trying to provide a home for them and a place of comfort in a continuously harder place to be," explains the actress. "And I find myself working in this very surreal club that gets me into a sort of predicament, and in the meantime, these boys are off on their own adventures and they discover this underground city." Sounds ambitious. "I don't know what the exact budget is, but I think we've got a nice amount," said Hendricks. "I'm sure it will be incredibly clever, and Ryan already has storyboards and pictures of neighborhoods and homes, and he's already collecting music for it ... when you read it, it gives ou the feeling, maybe, of a memory. Something from your childhood that you can't really pinpoint." One last thing: Exactly what kind of club does her character work in? Are we talking "gentlemen's club"? "Book club," perhaps? Hendricks thought the question over, unsure whether she should say. "Fetish club," she allowed. "Fetish club." Yeah, that ought to tide us over for a while.

GOSSIP - Amici di...Penn. Badgley, l'ex di Lively, felice e sorpreso del matrimonio-lampo della "Gossip Girl"
Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds shocked the world -- including Lively's ex-boyfriend and Gossip Girl co-star Penn Badgley -- with their secret wedding Sunday. "I actually didn't know until last night, but I think it's fantastic," Badgley, told People. "I couldn't be happier for her." Blake Lively and Ryan Reynolds get married Badgley and Lively began dating in 2007 shortly after Gossip Girl began. The couple, who also have played on-and-off lovers on the CW drama, broke up in 2010. As with Badgley,  Lively met Reynolds on the set when she was cast as his love interest in 2011's Green Lantern. They started dating in October that year. "I'm so happy for her," said Badgley, who learned of the wedding by reading reports and speaking to people close to her. "I think it's everything that it should be," he added of Lively's relationship with Reynolds. At least there's still a chance for Lively and Badgley's Gossip Girl characters, S and Lonely Boy, to find their happily ever after. The final season of Gossip Girl premieres on Monday, Oct. 8 at 9/8c on The CW.

GOSSIP - Ultima ora, Blake Lively si è sposata (con Ryan Reynolds) con tanto di Florence Welch canterina!
According to People Magazine, Ryan Reynolds and Blake Lively were married Sunday evening near Charleston, South Carolina. This is the second marriage for Reynolds – he was previously married for two years to Scarlett Johansson – and the first for Lively. Reynolds was also engaged to Alanis Morissette for over two years in the mid-2000s. The wedding sounds like it was quite the event: it took place in a white tent on an old Southern plantation, Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine performed, a cake was driven all the way down from Virginia, and Bette Middler was probably there. The couple have dated publicly for just under a year, and recently bought a home togther in Bedford, New York.

NEWS - Studio Usa (e getta): vedere e rivedere una serie tv fa bene. Anche "Terra Nova"?
Roma (Adnkronos Salute) - Il singolare risultato di una ricerca scientifica promuove i palinsesti estivi, che tendono a riproporre show e serie tv non proprio nuovissimi. Sembra, infatti, che riguardare le serie televisive preferite faccia bene agli spettatori, rendendoli piu' smart e migliorandone l'autocontrollo e la forza di volonta'. I ricercatori dell'Universita' di Buffalo hanno scoperto che gli spettatori sono anche piu' abili nell'eseguire i puzzle dopo essersi sciroppati per l'ennesima volta un episodio del telefilm del cuore. Secondo l'equipe diretta da Jaye Derrick, dunque, guardare piu' volte un episodio amato aiuta a ripristinare le riserve di forza di volonta' e autocontrollo. Una sorta di pit-stop, specificamente collegato al fatto di rivedere i propri show tv preferiti, dice la Derrick. Non solo. I ricercatori,nei due esperimenti pubblicati su 'Social Psychological and Personality Science', hanno scoperto che vedere un episodio nuovo non ha gli stessi effetti positivi. "Sulla base dei nostri risultati - spiega la studiosa sul 'Daily Mail' - guardare la televisione non e' alla fin fine una cosa del tutto negativa".
