When NLM mets SGALGG

Paris Match: Monica Bellucci and Sophie Marceau

So, Monica Bellucci and Sophie Marceau are starring together in the new film “Ne Te Retourne Pas” (Don’t Look Back) which premiered at Cannes last weekend. It’s a psychological thriller that sees Sophie’s character morph, quite literally, into Monica’s character. This apparently caused both women great mental distress. Which is in turn where the movie loses me. Hello, if I suddenly looked like Sophie Marceau or Monica Bellucci I think I might feel like I’d won the lottery. But, potato, potato. Perhaps the best thing about the movie so far is that it affords us the opportunity to ogle the extra special when Naked Lady Monday mets Straight Gals Acting Like Gay Gals action between Monica and Sophie. I mean, what better way to illustrate a European goddess version of Freaky Friday than to have its two stars get naked and hug? [Hat tip, Elisabeth for the magazine scans and Eletta and Bénédicte for the heads up!]

Is it me, or does Monica look a little, um, possessive? Though, I guess, can you blame her?

Ha, when I saw the magazine in stores last week, I just knew you would post something about it!
NLM and SGALGG together in one post. Can it get any better than this?

Raawwwrr these are hot pics...
They both look quite possessive I'd say, blame it on the latin origins eh !

Would this kind of photo shoot ever happen between, say, Cate Blanchett and Tilda Swinton ?

Lezlie Mac- I sure hope not!

I saw the film in Cannes. It's a great idea for a movie but I am afraid it is a great proof how even the best visual effect sometimes just come out ridiculous and our fantasy can do a much better job.
When watching a 'morph' of Monica Belucci and Sophie Marceau throughout a third of the film (a morph of two incredibly gorgeous women) the only thing that comes to mind is 'Creeepy!!!'.

Luckily for us there is plenty of time before and after the morphing the to ooogle the two ladies separately.

Exactly what I needed to start off my morning.

Unfortunately, to rain on the parade a little, straight European women seem to ALWAYS act gay. I've had a friend or two like that, and as the gay American one, it was very confusing, especially when you're on the receiving end of said straight-gayness. :P

Oh. My. F***ing. God... OO

You do realize that I had GIGANTIC crushes on both these women during my teenage years... You do know that they still are, to this day, my favorite European actresses... You do understand that you are now responsible for my brain's death...

Oh. My. God.

Oh, Sophia. You had me at "you will not sit long on the throne. I swear it."

I've had serious celebrity crushes on these two ladies. So seeing them together like that just made my brain stop.

In a perfect world they're gay ladies.

Fuck, I love them both!
