    Love the book, love Charlize. I’m curious to see what kind of makeoever she would need to play the role of Libby though… she’s too pretty and more mature than I had imagined Libby to look.

    I love Charlize Theron, but as a big fan of the book, I think this is totally miscast. The character of Libby is much younger and is often mistaken for even younger than she is. Sorry, but Charlize is too old and just not right for this role. Someone like Kirsten Dunst or Alison Lohman would be a better fit.

    Vixen at 9:25; Just go ahead and say it already. The movie was made for an actress who looks more like Sienna Miller.

    According to Gillian Flynn’s website, Amy Adams was originally attached to star as Libby. Either way, both are amazing actresses and can’t wait to see how Charlize takes on the role. Love her! :)

    She is overrated! I can’t stand her ever since she did a movie with Kskank. I thought her career was over?
