Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be a crush ng bayan with really “long hair” like Jenna Hamilton in Awkward?
Dinna stopped watching Awkward because she says, “Siya na ang pinakamaganda. Every guy is after her. Parang fan fiction.”
But it does happen in real life. Not to me, but when my friend told me about a friend of ours and all her pedigreed exes, leading to her heartthrob husband, I was impressed.
Last night I watched Far From The Madding Crowd, which stars Carey Mulligan as Bathsheba Everdene, who gets three marriage proposals from her suitors:
1) Gabriel Oak, a gentle, soft-spoken, hard-working, handsome sheperd played by Matthias Schoenaerts
2) William Boldwood, a rich farmer, older man played by Michael Sheen
3) Sergeant Francis “Frank” Troy, a “dashing” but good for nothing soldier who sweeps Bathsheba off her feet, played by Tom Sturridge
As I watched the movie, it was clear to me who Bathsheba should marry—obviously a choice between #1 and #2. Both seemed like really good men, except that #1 is hot and #2 is not, but he’s rich.
She chose to marry #3 which leads to much bad luck for everybody.
While watching the movie I couldn’t help but think: why everybody is in love with Bathsheba? It must be a really small town with slim pickins because I didn’t find anything amazing about her. But that’s just me.
What got me transfixed was Belgian actor Matthias Schoenaerts with his apostolic, rugged, gentle looks.
Notice how most of the time his head is bent down—special angle?
Such a dreamboat
Notice how he kind of looks like Jesus—and not because he plays a shepherd.
Also how he always looks like a Gap model in every scene (great styling?).
Watch the trailer. Which would you choose?
