    Must be a great privilege for her to work on the big screen with someone who frequently doesn’t wear an underwear…

    Been waiting to see her again. She was fascinating in Gone Girl and even though it was a hit, so many seemed turned off by her due to the role she played. Some major starring roles can damage a career if an actor is so closely associated with it and nothing else.

    Sounds like a boring storyline. I’m only going to see it, if they sleep together and we see some skin.
