    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 Says:

    @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. As Taxpaying citizens of the United States, we demand that our government no longer support and provide benefits to organizations that promote Hate Crime, Bigotry, and Bullying.

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

    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

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

    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.

    Jennifer will always be the best Elizabeth Bennett.

    Stephanie Says:

    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.

    At least they got something right with this cast…

    @Lauren: she is 43 years old

    Ha Says:

    @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!

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

    Lauren Says:

    @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 Says:

    @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.

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

    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.
