But I often forget to take pictures. Last night, for instance, Richard and I went to dinner with Rod Stewart, Penny, his wife, and Kimberly, his actress daughter whose mother is Alana. While Richard spent the time talking music with Rod, Penny, Kimberly and I had some wonderful conversations about acting, and finding oneself after being lost, and relationship (the need for give and take and the need to know when it’s time to which). Then we went to Rod and Penny’s to watch the new Jeff Bridges film, “Crazy Heart”…he’s been nominated for a number of the awards for his role in this and, as always, he is stellar. I love this time of year when looking at dozens of movies in a week or two is justified if one is a voter…and I am a voter, so I turn into a movie glutton. This year more than I can remember, people seem to be deeply divided in their likes and dislikes. One person will say “(500) Days of Summer” is the best movie they’ve seen and another will scream with astonishment, “No! That’s the worst,…” I loved “It’s complicated.” Meryl blew me away even more than usual yet I was almost asked to leave the table the other night when I expressed this because some hated it so much.
