JIM CARREY: PERFECT TEN?
Bo Derek‘s 1979 movie “10” launched a hairstyle fad – beaded braids – and also launched inferiority complexes in millions of females. Who could measure up to her impossible perfection at the TOP of the men’s rating scale for women? The Blake Edwards comedy was a hit and it made Bo a star. Now it’s being remade (yet another example of Hollywood running out of original ideas) but several leading men have turned DOWN the role originated by the late Dudley Moore. (The plot is about a Hollywood songwriter in the throes of mid-life crisis, who goes on vacation in Mexico and becomes infatuated with his dentist’s daughter who is honeymooning there.) Maybe they don’t want to be associated with “mid-life crisis” – but Hugh Grant and Dennis Quaid both turned the role down. We hear Jim Carrey has accepted and hope he can keep his face under control for this one. Now the search is on for a modern-day “10” female costar – we think it will be difficult to top Bo. Any suggestions?
