    whaaat ? she looks like she’s 20!!

  • jane

    I love Jennifer Ehle!!! I agree, though, she’s way too good for this but work is work.

  • Julie

    Jennifer Ehle was the only good thing in Zero Dark Thirty and totally overshadowed the overrated and zero expressive Jessica Chastain!
    But she is too good for this kind of movie, she deserves something better!

  • Lauren

    @Ariane: She doesn’t look 20 but she barely looks older than Dakota Johnson who is 24 and looks to be in her 30s!

    Roger Goodell is a Racist Bigot White Supremacist NFL Commissioner and the other 32 team owners are Racist Bigots for supporting, enabling, and profiting off the Hate Crime Culture that is promoted by the use of the Washington “Redskins” team nickname.
    End the ethnic Bullying and Hate Crime culture perpetuated by the NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and the NFL owners by writing to your Senator or Congressman to strip the NFL from its tax exempt status and anti-trust status.

    They’re gonna have to make Dakota look younger than she is and Jennifer older than she is in order for that to work

  • Lola

    Jennifer is so great and I can’t understand why Hollywood doesn’t appreciate her. Jen is talented and really gorgeous, she deserves better! And this movie will be a failure, the story sucks

  • Rock

    It’s clearly an escapist film – where everyone looks 105 years younger than they are.

  • heather

    Jennifer Ehle has always looked like a young Meryl Streep to me. Anybody else think so too? I wish they would do Death Becomes Her with Jennifer Ehle in Meryl’s part.

  • MKelly

    WTF ? She’s a great actress, way above this crap !

  • Isis Lara

    Jennifer will always be the best Elizabeth Bennett.

  • Stephanie

    Jennifer is perfect for Carla! She’s a great actress. I couldn’t help but notice though that she looks young and youthful, like our Ana is supposed to look (if Jennifer were younger of course), and they cast someone old and worn looking like Dakota to play our sweet, fresh-faced Ana. Ridic.

  • Melissa

    At least they got something right with this cast…

  • car

    @Lauren: she is 43 years old

  • Ha

    @heather: I agree with you, she does resemble Meryl Streep =) ….However though, I think she’s way prettier than the girl who will play her daughter Anastasia in the 50 shades movie!

  • LOL42

    @Isis Lara:
    Absolutley. The one and only Elizabeth Bennett perfecto

  • Lauren

    @car: I know that. I was saying in reply to someone who said she looks 20 that she doesn’t looks 20, but she hardly looks older than Dakota Johnson who is playing Ana. I know Jennifer is 43, perfect age for Carla, but Dakota at 24 looks to be in her 30s already. That’s what I was saying.

  • Sara

    @Ha: She is loads prettier than Dakota, and Jennifer if she were 20 years younger would make a fantastic Ana – she still has that youthful, sweet face. Dakota is not a pretty girl and her facial features are too mature and elongated. She isn’t our sweet-faced, beautiful, petite Ana one bit.

  • Liz

    Elizabeth Bennet will be on that stupid movie??? She’s WAY too good for this!

  • mary

    Well they have to pay the bills and work for a living too..
    Anyway, if its true, she’ll do great, she’s a great actress. and For Dakota haters, give the girl a chance.
