    True Ellen. Her film opportunities are far better now with her beau being jd. Before rum diaries she was bad in bad and good movies… Wait that hasn’t changed. However she is getting sent far better scripts. Even indirectly, yes JD has everything to do with her career. Most of her recent movies even star JD’s notorious best friends. Walken, Cage, Slater, and even his director friends like Rodriguez who wanted amber for stefani’s part but got knocked down to miss Beauty Pageant. She is almost out the door. Looks only get you so far as does having relationships with a listers. She needs to get off her high horse and get acting lessons. You know, like EVERY other actor does including Depp.
