Speaking of celebrities: I just finished Celebutantes by Amanda Goldberg and Ruthanna Khalighi Hopper.
It was an interesting look into Hollywood the week before the Oscars. In fact the central character is Lola who is Hollywood royalty (her father is a big time director) without being anyone in her own right. Even my reading carries over into the entertainment world.
The thing about this book that I found so amusing was that everyone was the next someone: The next Nicole Kidman, the next Cameron Diaz. Even the movies were the remakes of old classics or sequels to movies that we have all seen and never wanted a sequel to come about (Days of Thunder anyone?). Even in an issue of Entertainment Weekly last month the cover was about the "next Hollywood A-List". You know questions like who is the next Julia Roberts or Meg Ryan?
All of this got me to thinking (I know right); if everyone now is the next someone than the next generation will be what? The next, next someone? So confusing.
Anyway, read the book. It was a fun, easy read and perfect for a day at the beach (or pool for those of you who are landlocked). Also, I cannot imagine that some of the more bizarre actress characteristics were not based on someone we all know and maybe love. Sometimes even a good imagination cannot come up with this stuff.
