since watching Inglourious Basterds which i actually found highly entertaining even though its not necessarily the type of movie i tend to watch, i've had a new girl crush. Melanie Laurent. she is a great actress (i've also seen her work in Klapisch's 'Paris') and ethereally gorgeous. she is such a typical french girl, completely sexy, chic and effortless. i like the fact that she's not a towering model-esque type and that her fashion and beauty are a little off-kilter. throw into the mix that she is apparently dating Damien Rice and i am completely jealous! can't wait to see more from her in the future.
