2008: In a nutshell





"It's really fun to be recognized, because it doesn't happen all that often. So every time it does happen, I'm just really into it! I'm really nice about it. I don't think I'll ever come to a point where I'm just like, "Sorry, I'm not really interested in signing anything right now."
-Amanda Seyfried

"I've often been told that I'm a bit strange. I hear that pretty regularly, but it is not how I see myself. I feel like I'm extremely normal."
-Clemence Poesy

"You can't put a finger on what makes two characters connect... It's just the chemistry. We have it. We feel it."
-Ed Westsick on Gossip Girl characters Chuck & Blair

"I had a really regular progression--and this is really pleasant, I think--because I had small parts in TV movies, then bigger parts in TV movies, and then small parts in films. And I think this allows you to get...experience of the set and to get familiar with [the process]. And as I had a really slow progression, I think it really helped me to stay lucid and not get carried away."
-Gaspard Ulliel

"I'm a big goofball, you know. Don't tell anyone that, but I'm a big goofball. In Australia we call it a dag."
-Hugh Jackman

"People should realize women aren't just whores or virgins, I want to see women who are real human beings."
- Kate Beckinsale

"Why would I cry over a boy? I would never waste my tears on a boy. Why waste your tears on someone who makes you cry?"
-Kirsten Dunst

"I'm not a risk taker. I don't do plunging necklines or really short skirts. I try to stay as classy as possible and provide a little mystery."
-Kristen Bell

"Writing poetry is one of my favorite things to do and I always find time for it. There are things that I write about most that are just kind of like everyday thoughts that I have, things that come into my mind."
-Leighton Meester

"It would be far easier to go, "Oh, I wish I loved women," but I don`t. I love the way a man thinks. I love the way a man smells. I love the way men look. And I`m hooked on the male physique - hooked on it."
-Nicole Kidman

"I mean, God bless The Notebook. It introduced me to one of the great loves of my life. But people do Rachel and me a disservice by assuming we were anything like the people in that."
-Ryan Gosling

"She was inspiring. You know, she's just like Allie in the movie: She laughs like that, she talks like that. She's elated one minute and devastated the next. She's a very real person. You tend to forget what real people are in this business but she was a jolt of reality, you know?"
-Ryan Gosling

"Thats the worst thing, I dont really care if people say I'm a bad actor, I can like work on that, but if they just say that he's ugly thats just like "oh.. really?"
-Robert Pattinson



27 Dresses

I've probably watched this movie at least 10 times now. James Marsden/Katherine Heigl had such amazing chemistry in this movie. Loved it, even though it was cheesy.


I totally teared up watching this movie. It was such an amazing portrayal of owner/dog relationship. And mittens and Rhino were just so adorable *squee*

Definitely, Maybe

A friend of mine made me watch this movie and it turned out to be so heartwarming. I especially loved the scene in the beginning where the girl wouldn't stop saying "penis" and "sex".


Need I say more? Everything about this movie made me love it. The aesthetics were definitely not lacking either. Such a pretty movie to watch.


Quirky, fun and so easy to relate to.

High School Musical 3

Mamma Mia!

Amanda Seyfried and Meryl Streep were simply amazing in this musical/movie. I've always been somewhat a musical junkie since I was a kid so this movie was already a plus in that area. Moreover, the bringing back of ABBA songs.... *sigh*


Sex And The City

'Nuff said.

The Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants 2


Epic relationship between vampire/human with a gorgeous cast.

Vicky Cristina Barcelona



Pure guilty pleasure.




I was just rewatching friends (you got that) from Seaosn 1 and I'm only on Season 6 now. Although I've probably watched through the entire 10 seasons at least twice now. Chandler/Monica still my ultimate Friends OTP, of course with Ross/Rachel closely behind.

Gossip Girl

Chuck and Blair, period.


Basically a light hearted show, pleasant to watch, enjoyable with a lovely cast.

Pushing Daisies

Fuck you, ABC.

The Big Bang Theory

Best friggin' thing that happened to television, ever. This show needs some serious Sheldon/Penny relationship nowwwwwwww.

Veronica Mars

Another show I was rewatching. Still can't get enough of LoVe. Logan/Veronica foreverrrrrrrrr. Another OTP somewhere on the top of my list.

Muse/Matthew Bellamy

Best fucking live performances, ever.


Edwin Van der Saar

Iker Casillas

Manchester United

Novak Djokovic

Roger Federer

Team Espanol

Team Netherlands


Fedrinka winning the Olympic Gold medal for Men's Tennis Doubles.

Manchester United winning the Champions League (and English Premiere League, of course)

2008 Olympics

Team Espanol winning Euro Cup 2008

Barack Obama winning the presidential elections.

But maybe that's what makes us different lol. How did you find year 2008? It must have been consisted of alot of studying for A's right hahah!

[identity profile] 2008-12-28 02:25 pm (UTC)(link)

[identity profile] 2008-12-24 03:12 am (UTC)(link)
Aww I love this! The only thing I disagree with, really is Twilight, but the fact that YOU INCLUDED 27 DRESSES MAKES UP FOR IT! AND CLEMENCE POESY (have you seen In Bruges? She has a small but cute role in it)

[identity profile] 2008-12-28 02:39 pm (UTC)(link)
Well twilight's awesomeness really revolves around Rpattz ahahahhha. No I haven't! But thx for telling me about it, will totally download it!
