Something new - yes! I often wonder how the actors handle scenes like these? I mean, it looks pretty real to me! (Tongue and all!!!) Yes I know, they are professionals and all.... but hey - they are still men!

@bonaduz re devil wears prada. when i first saw the film, i didn't know who simon was. all i remembered is his voice and the way he kept stepping on anne hathaway's lines, peppering her with questions and making her nervous. he was all sex and seduction. what i did notice is how awful the fashion was. no editor of vogue would be caught dead wearing what meryl streep wore. same goes for what they did with anne hathaway and emily blunt. hollywood never gets this right. though anne's gown at the museum party was lovely. i even hated how they dressed simon. that stupid scarf. much like the mentalist fashion-oriented episodes, it was a little inept. patricia field (she did sex in the city) did the costume design. she's kind of coarse and trashy. they needed a real fashion person. givenchy did audrey hepburn's clothes in her films. cecil beaton directed. 50 years later, the films still look impossibly chic.

ahah yes he would look cute in a bin bag! I take him anytime! especially rolling on a bed..
rooooooooo naughty girl, ok it's late, I'm single and tired, I guess I've got an excuse.. to get out of order.

When my boys were little, I always bought them pajamas, but as soon as they were 8,9 years old, they refused to wear them anymore. But you're totally right mimi, Patrick looks like a 12year old, kicking his sheets, rolling around on the bed, reading on his belly - kind of cute, even wearing PJ's!

yes well he's delicious for sure.. he can kiss me anytime I have no excuses.. his lips.. I love the love scene in Something New, the way he says "I think you're adorable" and slides his index on her lips, god..apparently, she has a real crush on him.. they had to rate each others kissing and she said he was a 11. also he needed a tan and some people of the make up crew (women) saw him naked. everyone had a crush on him! no really??

@mimi. even a t-shirt and a pajama bottom would be ok.
i loved margin call. would have thought it was great even without simon. beautifully written and played. the cast is amazing. glad he was in that company. it won the best screenplay oscar. definitely good for his career.
simon in the devil wears prada is delicious. that scene where anne hathaway says, "i'm running out of excuses," and he says "thank god."

HC: I also found it funny (or weird, or soooo not Patrick) that they put him in PJ's! But oh well. And that shorty robe (that's a new word for me!). I have never seen a man wear this kind of thing either. But hey - who knows what the rich and famous wear? LOL Speaking of clothes: Love the Jean Jacket and shirt he wears in S&D 101 in that scene in the white room. It goes good with his eyes! I have not seen Margin call yet. It's worth a peek you say? I liked the devil wears prada, but for you, living in NY, beeing into fashion AND having your favourite actor in it - pretty good, eh?

ah really? well thank you, Bona you were right! my apology..
I didn't hear that at all but ok you explained why it was not clear.
When I started watching the series in OV I had such a hard time because I'm very very very used to British English, the accent is so different, I couldn't understand half of what they were saying, also because they use a lot of cop vvocab that I'd never heard before. Grace and Lisbon were the worst, Simon was the easiest to understand for me. Now it's ok, I've got used to their accent and for nothing on earth I'd swap again and watch it in French, although I must say, his voice is not too bad.

@rationalgal agree with you about the descendants. and the brad pitt movies. also, he should be the joker in the next batman. he'd be perfect.

oh yes I have also seen the devil wears prada and loved it, weird to see a "despicable" Simon, Meryl Streep made me laugh and at the same time it's quite tragic. how she cuts herself from her emotions. anyway, I haven't seen Margin Call because it doesn't appeal to me.

HC I agree about the pj, I was like WTF?? I mean come on.. he looked like a 12yo.. what man wears a pj anyway, I don't know any.. it's rather a tshirt and boxer or sthg but never mind.
