Rumour has it Anne Rice was going to rewrite the role of Louis in Interview With A Vampire to be female, with Cher at the top of the casting list. Let's all take a moment to treasure what a gift that truly would have been.
💢Brad Pitts Best Movie💢
Legends Of The Fall - Edward Zwick
Not only is this one of the best movie from Pitt with „A River Runs Through It“, „Seven Years In Tibet“ and „Interview With A Vampire“ but also one of the best adaptations from a cherished novel I read ever so often.
Directed by Edward Zwick and composed by the great James Horner (Rip), it is about three brothers in the times of the first world war, struggling to maintain to be a family in harsh times and Tristan played by Pitt having to deal with the consequences of life. It is a movie with a huge scope and classical tone, you would not think it was made in the late 90s but stands the grounds with the golden era of Hollywood.
Even the little boy from ET plays the youngest brother and Sir Anthony Hopkins plays the father. I can tell you that there ain’t nothing better than this and have been influenced by his movies ever since I saw him in his debut role in „Thelma & Louise“.
One thing that inspired me most is the trial Tristan has to overcome in time, feeling like the bear inside him is screaming out and not able to calm the voices until he finds the heroes death at an old age as it should be. Taking many different nuances from these classic movies and being truly inspired.
Is TC at his best when he's the bad guy? His turn as Lestat is dangerous, playful....weirdly arousing. Between Lestat and Vincent, Tom nails the dark, calculated and intense characters......perhaps because Tom is dark, calculated, and intense.

Ok ....so horror fans it's that moment annually (yes somehow celeb doppelgangers comes up and this is ALWAYS my response) where I am going to point out a freaky doppelganger!
For me (again ALWAYS) I am drawn to Keira Knightley - seriously she is beautiful in that gangly waif way I get it fellas.
However whenever I try to watch the Queen of the Damned ( the film sequel to the Interview With a Vampire) I always feel Stuart Townsend ,who plays Lestat and is quite handsome, looks just like her.
Yes I said it! To me, Stuart Townsend and Keira Knightley look literally separated at birth in my opinion.
Perhaps my fellow horror fans dont see what I do but it's been something I find myself oddly discussing at least once a year.
