It's Rosamund Pike's 37th birthday today which made me realize -- doesn't it seem like it's been super quiet from her since Gone Girl? It's been a year and a half since then and the only thing she's released is some low-rent thriller with Shiloh Fernandez called Return to Sender. That said that might've been done before Gone Girl blew her up, and she does have several things set to come out this year, so all's not lost. I wasn't the biggest fan of Gone Girl and I don't think a revisit will work wonders like it just did for Inside Llewyn Davis since BEN AFFLECK IS LITERALLY THE WORST, but thinking about her in the movie I suddenly felt like making a quick list of five of my favorite Blonde Bitches. So that's what this is!
Mavis Gary (Charlize Theron), Young Adult
"You're good here, Sandra."
Marquise de Merteuil (Glenn Close), Dangerous Liaisons
"One does not applaud the tenor
for clearing his throat."
Chris Hargensen (Nancy Allen), Carrie
"Oh, Billy. Billy. Oh, Billy. Oh, Billy.
Billy. Oh, Billy. Oh. Oh, Billy.
I hate Carrie White."
Regina George (Rachel McAdams), Mean Girls
"I like invented her."
Sebastian Valmont (Ryan Phillippe), Cruel Intentions
"I didn't mean to offend you. I just
picked up on a little bit of that lesbian vibe."
So what are some of your faves?
