This Charlie Rose Show interview with Blue Is The Warmest Color‘s Adele Exarchopoulos is 11 days old…big deal. She was and still is my Critics Choice/BFCA pick for the 2103 Best Actress award. Will the insulated Academy farts even nominate her? Related issues: (a) How high-powered is her publicist? (b) How much schmoozing has Exarchopoulos done at industry parties? (c) How much money has Blue made? These are things that matter a great deal.

Would it kill Rose to have a little eye-bag and neck-wattle work done? He probably thinks this would compromise his image as a no-bullshit interviewer, but he’s starting to look a wee bit sinister. Like a supporting actor in an early ’60s Roger Corman horror film (The Terror, The Pit and the Pendulum, House of Usher). Or perhaps a stagecoach driver in one of those late ’50s or early ’60s Hammer Dracula films.
