MOVIE WHAT? MONDAY

Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,

A movie is going to be made about your life. Who should play you as an adult?

As many of you already know, in real life I am Lorelai Gilmore. Therefore, you may think that the actress who portrayed me on television should be me in the movie.

But Lauren Graham is busy with her new TV series, Parenthood. She doesn't have time to play me in The Story of Janie Junebug: A Dumped First Wife Who Became Incredibly Cool Following Her Divorce.

So, who should play me? She needs to be an actress who can convey my sensuality, intelligence, and love of good grammar.

I think I have the answer.

Christina Hendricks, who plays Joan on Mad Men. She has the smile, the hair that's the same color as Favorite Young Man's and The Hurricane's, and she definitely has the boobs.

Oh, yeah, She has the boobs.

Christina Hendricks is my choice to play me.

Now, what about you? Who should play you as an adult?

Infinities of love,

Janie Junebug

  1. I can't decide. I've always thought of myself as a cross between Heidi Klum & Moe of the 3 stooges. Any suggestions??

    1. Oh, I think it's Julia Roberts for you.

  2. Well, since Sophia Loren is a little too old to play me, I'm thinking maybe Sandra Bullock or Susan Sarandon. I would go for Julia Roberts but hubby doesn't like her and my lips are not that big. I know, how about Anne Hathaway? She'd be perfect.
    Btw, are those fake boobs or what? Any higher and they would be in her throat. :)

    1. Sophia is getting old, but she has aged like a fine wine; you will do the same. Susan is probably a little too old to be you. Sandy or Anne seem like good choices. If you are referring to Christina's boobs, then I am convinced they are as real as mine, which means they are very real. Christina and I like push-up bras and showing off our cleavage. Mine is to die for.

  3. Good choice with Christina Hendricks. I would be played by Karl Urban, the guy playing Judge Dredd in the new Dredd movie.

    1. I'm not familiar with him, but no doubt he is very handsome and can demonstrate intelligence.

  4. Wow! Janie, you have a wonderful sense of humor and your selection is great.

    I'd pick Halle Berry.

    1. Good choice! I think Halle Berry is the world's most beautiful woman.

  5. Hmmm.... maybe if I am honest it would choose Jason Bateman.... but I would probably end up in a fight with the studio over their choice of a Ceelo Hasselfhoff combination!!

    1. I like Jason Bateman! He's cute and a very good actor.

  6. Christina Hendricks is perfect for you! Who should play me? I have no idea. Meryll Streep? I'm kind of classic, and so is she. But I'm a lot younger than her. So maybe Sandra Bullock? I just don't know. Who do you think?

    1. The person who plays you has to have a very sweet appearance in order to capture you at all. Meryl is too old. Can Sandy look sweet? I think she either does silly or very serious. Sweet . . . sweet . . . how do you feel about Anne Hathaway?

    2. I think Anne Hathaway would be perfect. Wow, you're good!

  7. I'll be honest, Kathy Bates is probably closest. Big, spirited, with a good sense of humor. ;)

    1. Kathy Bates also happens to be a great actress. I think she could capture your sense of fun and your enjoyment of organizing.

    1. Please, no. No, Boomer. I've been convinced for a long time that Janet Reno is a man. Doesn't everyone -- except for Janet herself -- know she isn't fooling anyone?

  9. Kat Dennings from 2 Broke Girls would have to play me. She's quirky, close enough to my age, and has the boobs ;)

    1. I don't know who she is, but I love the name Kat.

  10. What a fun question! Too bad I can't think of a snappy answer. When I was young, people told me I looked like (a) Sandra Dee, (b) Cheryl Ladd, (c) Florence Henderson, and (d) Quasimodo. (My brother was ticked off at me at the time.) Nowadays, I dunno. Sally Fields with blonde hair, maybe? Joan Rivers without all the plastic surgery? Quasimodo? Hmmm, like I said, a fun question.

    1. I always enjoyed watching old Sandra Dee movies. Too bad she's too dead to play you. I haven't seen Cheryl Ladd in a long time. I've heard that Sally Fields is very nasty in person. That leaves Florence Henderson, who is pretty and seems sweet and your movie can be a musical. I think I look like Quasimodo in the white sweater I was wearing for the photo at the top of my blog. I run around screaming "sanctuary" all the time.

  11. Dear Janie, an interesting question and of course I'm going to say my favorite actor--Meryl Streep--would play me!!! Why not go for the best! Peace.

    1. You can't do better than the best. Meryl is perfect.

  12. Christina Hendricks is a great choice :)

    I would pick Linda Carroll Hamilton, because she's a badass in Terminator--when I finally grow up I hope to be like that lol

  13. Well I am not sure who would fit in. Something to think about.

    1. A very beautiful actress will be needed to play you, PAPS.

  14. I think Courtney Cox would do me nicely. But she'll need to borrow Christina's boobs. This was a most excellent, lighthearted post for a Friday (even though you wrote it on Monday).

    1. Sounds like the perfect choice. Courtney is funny and beautiful.

    1. Jaya, Charlize is a great actress and I believe she has also triumphed over difficult personal circumstances.
