Ok this has probably been to done to death on another thread many moons ago but that bloody annoying Coco Chanel advert is being advertised every ten minutes it seems and that pour of hers us driving me mad! I just think she is a really wooden actress who is only used a lot cos she's as thin as an ironing board ...

Does anyone like her? ( or am I just being irrational ..?)

I'm warming to her - I was put off by the insanely long neck for a while and the cloying girliness in Love Actually. But she was good in Atonement and she seems generally nice.

She is intensely irritating in everything she has ever done!! Especially Pirates of the Carribean, stupid woman, shut up!!

You're spot on, bloody irritating and couldn't act her way out of a paper bag!

Nancy66 Sun 15-Sep-13 21:32:51

Agree. Just can't watch anything she's in. Along with Winslet and Rebecca Hall

I can't stand the chin jutting. Every character she plays does it.

I did enjoy The Edge Of Love though.

Thank god it's not just me ! I can't figure out exactly why I find her so irritating. I get she's beautiful but it's that smug little girl pout that I can't stand! ( I honestly don't like hating on women but can't seem to help it here..)

No acting skills and a weird jaw.
Wouldn't mind the jaw if she could act but she obviously gets work for being pretty.
I want her to be a Benedict C type - strange but engaging.No she is only ever the pretty girl.

I used not to be able to stand her but she was very good on The Duchess.

On the basis of that film, I ordered Anna Karenina with her as Anna which unfortunately was shite.

She did do an ad for women's aid recently though, which really endeared her to me. I might actually like her now, though the Coco ad is still one of the worst ads in history.

I'm too exhausted to find and link it, sorry.

Nope don't like her!!

SPsTotallyMullerFuckingLicious Sun 15-Sep-13 21:41:06

I only liked her in Bend It Like Beckham

She can't act. Which makes her annoying as she spoils everything she's in ( that I've seen)

RedPencils Sun 15-Sep-13 21:45:26

She's a bit of a one trick pony, but she is exactly right in Atonement.

PrincessFlirtyPants Sun 15-Sep-13 21:50:15

Nope, can't stand her. YANBU

My husband loves her.

I'm not sure if he wants to fuck her or wrap her in blankets and feed her a sandwich.

Bumblequeen Sun 15-Sep-13 21:53:07

She has come along well since Bend it Like Beckham. Period dramas/films are definitely for her.

FreudiansSlipper Sun 15-Sep-13 21:57:22

I like her

she has not buggered off to LA to become a star and supports British film making

not the greatest actress but not terrible i have seen worse

Nancy66 Sun 15-Sep-13 21:57:46

I think she's lovely looking - it's just the jutty out chin/pout acting I can't get on with.

If she ever did a film with Nicholas Cage I think I would spontaneously combust.

I am glad I'm not alone. Her inability to close her mouth gives me the rage.
