beautiful people

It's inevitable. A fact of life. There are beautiful people everywhere.

Ever see the movie The Last Kiss? It's the one with Zach Braff, where he cheats on his sexy older girlfriend (Jacinda Barrett), with the hot young college girl a.k.a Rachel Bilson.

Anyways, there is this part in the movie where Zach is trying to explain his "bad behavior" to his girlfriend's dad. In essence he blames his cheating on the fact that Bilson was hot. The dad stares at him for a second as says something to the effect of, "You think I've seen my last hot brunette?"

Alright, alright . . . it's probably better if you just watch the movie.

Point being, I'd rather be 40 and sexy, than hot at 25. Hot 25 year-old girls are everywhere, but stand out, sexy 40 year-olds are rare.

i agree! the last kiss was sad, but good. really my favorite part was the soundtrack!! also, when rachel bilson's character says, "you gotta remember to breathe or you'll die." haha

if you like the Zach Braff 'LAST KISS' you should check out the Italian movie it was a remake of, 'L'ULTIMO BACCIO' In my opinion it's the better of the two, and they're currently filming a sequel. Yay movies!

this post makes me feel strangely beautiful- because you're right- they're always going to be there. I find myself thinking, if only i was skinnier or if only i had pretty hair etc...

i want to stand out too.

also- do take Tracey on the suggestion- the italian version is AMAZING. AMAZING.

i can't remember the exact quote or who said it, but it's one of my faves: to be young and beautiful is a fluke of nature, to be old and beautiful is a force of nature.
