Congratulations to Isabelle Huppert on her first (yeah, we know) Oscar nomination this morning (see all of the nominations over at The Film Experience) for Paul Verhoeven's masterful film Elle. (Elle missed the Foreign Film race but we're trying to stay positive right now, so stop it.) The more times I watch Elle the darker and more biting the film gets and obviously it owes a hefty chunk of that to Huppert, who I think is in every scene of the film? If she's not name the scene she's not in in the comments.
Anyway these pictures are of a young Izzy with Steve Guttenberg and his sexy 80s self in the terrific and underrated 1987 thriller The Bedroom Window. (You can see more shirtless Steve in that movie right here because of course we got that covered.) I hope where ever Huppert is celebrating there's some fuzzy man-chest not far out of reach. (It's not a celebration without it.)
