What I was mostly struck by was the delicate beauty of the actress who plays the robot, Alicia Viskander:
But when I got home and Google-imaged her, that beauty was a little more elusive. What I found were a bunch of shots that looked like this:
Still pretty, but hardly the shimmeringly beautiful, exquisitely delicate, ethereal creature of the movie.
This evening, I stumbled across this picture of the character Cersei Lannister (with her brother) from Game of Thrones.
I've never seen the show, but was really struck by that picture. Here's another shot of her:
She's pretty much….perfection.
After finding out that the character was played by actress Lena Headey, I Google-imaged her and saw a lot of shots that looked like this:
Unquestionably beautiful, yes, but not really recognizable from one set of photos to the other. And here's another picture of her where she's doing that thing that good-looking girls do, making a face when their picture is taken. It's really a form of showing off: look-how-beautiful-I-still-am-even-when-I'm-making-this-face:
And both Vikander and Headey, at least in their better photographs, radiate goodness. Both look like sensitive, soulful, gentle, kind, intelligent creatures.
(Who knows what they're actually like.)
As Tolstoy said, how striking the illusion that beauty is goodness.
Anyway, my point here is that there is a lot of variance between different photographs, and, uh…..I dunno, I guess I just wanted to post some shots of exquisite women.
