Lena Headey in 300

我對<300 300壯士:斯巴達的逆襲(2006)>的感覺很複雜.我從未完整地看完這部電影,可能下意識地抗拒.<300>對Gerard Butler和Lena Headey的意義可能是相同的:英國和愛爾蘭演員要靠搏肉演出才能打進美國主流市場,再靠著美商華納強大的宣傳體一舉進攻全球票房.

Lena Headey在<300>成功之後,不斷回憶她在<The Brothers Gimm 神鬼剋星 (2005)>痛苦的拍攝經驗.導演一直斥責她,讓她之後失業11個月期間一度懷疑是不是該退出影壇:
    "Getting the role in 300 saved me. I'd been out of work for 11 months after The Brothers Grimm. Once the film came out and didn't do so well, the director Terry Gilliam blamed me for absolutely everything. It was pretty appalling and I had started to wonder if I'd ever get another job again when I was asked to audition for 300. I got the call at 2am to let me know I'd got the part and I felt such an enormous wave of relief I burst into tears.
    接演<300>竟讓她喜極而泣.

    I knew 300 was going to be a success and really enjoyed filming it, although having half-naked men on set certainly helped. They'd all been working out for six months prior to shooting and they looked amazing, strolling around in leather pants. But as the days wore on I started to think: "Oh, do put a jumper on, for goodness sake!" They would sit around flexing and comparing muscles saying: 'Oh, I must go and lift some weights', while I was virtually ignored.
    <300>是很gay的影片,沒想到男演員一練起肌肉,對唯一女性便視若無睹.

此刻她道出苦盡甘來的滄桑,說自己不擅於在好萊塢宴會上穿梭,於是:
<Pearl Harbor 珍珠港(2001)>被Kate Beckinsale(凱特貝琴薩)搶走;
<Daredevil 夜魔俠(2003)>被Jennifer Garner(珍妮佛嘉納)打敗;
因為她太緊張,<Love Actually 愛是您‧愛是我(2003)>最後選擇Keira Knightley(琪拉奈特莉)...

現在身價不太一樣了,市場依據她飾演的皇后造型推出專屬公仔

更多的觀眾注意到她(還有她的胸部),她不再限於拉拉圈子的銀幕偶像,此後的銀幕角色,她還會記得這些忠實粉絲嗎?看來,她的經紀人有幫她留意這塊票房吸引力.....

妳好:
我也是因為IMAY因緣際會的逛到妳的部落格,進而發現這裡有許多豐富的資料及獨特精闢的見解,真的讓我大開眼界!
最近一連串Lena的介紹也讓我由不同角度再次重溫她的許多作品,看到這一篇最後一段讓我忍不住笑出來:"更多觀眾注意到她(還有她的胸部)".另外有點好奇的就是最後一句話,怎麼知道她的經紀人有在幫她留意拉拉們這塊票房的呢?
