So did anyone watch tonight's Unhitched? Any good?
I watched about 10 minutes and then just could not take it any more. It is beyond bad, IMO. And no laugh track, and the acting is TERRIBLE!  Sorry Rashi. Acting just ain't your thang!

I just received the TV Guide for March 17 - 23 in the mail.  They have a HotList Section for each week, with a subtitle of "21 Shows You've Gotta See!"  Unhitched is listed as one of the 3 shows you've gotta see for Sunday, 3/23.  The caption underneath is "The Office's loss is our gain now that the smokin' Rashida Jones is scoring more airtime as the leading lady of this boys' club comedy." 

I didn't watch even the pilot, but it sounds like most of you who have seen either episode shown so far would put it on the "gotta avoid" list.  So, what's the dealio?  Why does someone at TV Guide think this should be on a "gotta see" list?  I mean, what happened there? Kidnapping?  :D  Bribery of TV Guide writers/layout people?   ;)

I couldn't stomach watching the second episode, but in the first one, there was absolutely no difference between her character and Karen.  Same demeanor, same facial expressions.  The character she plays (which also starts with a K, right?) even dated a tall guy who treated her poorly.  ;D

I have never seen her in anything else though.  Maybe she has more range than I'm giving her credit for.

I don't remember what her Unhitched character's name is, but it is something that sounds similar to Karen.  I'm sure that's coincidental, but you're right, it doesn't help.

I've seen her in Freaks and Geeks, and I have to say, she was really bad in it.  I mean, I actually don't like to watch that episode as much because her acting annoys the crap out of me.  On a regular show, it wouldn't have been that noticeable, but F&G is similar to The Office in that everything seems very realistic and organic, so she kind of stuck out like a sore thumb.

But, on the other hand, other things I've seen her in, she was good.  From what I recall of the movie, she was good in Little Black Book, and she was even funny (:o) on Chappelle's Show.  "RocaPads will keep your flow muthaf@ckin' tizzight!"

I didn't think her acting was anything to write home about on The Office, but I will say there was a video floating around out there (sora...where are you??) in which Rashida plays a guy who is trying to be a woman...or something like that.  She's actually really good in it and has some great facial expressions, etc.  It's really funny and watching that made me realize she was a better actress than I'd given her credit for.

I only saw the one episode of Unhitched and honestly her acting didn't do anything for me, but she wasn't even in it that much and the writing was so bad that I really blame the script and not her.

Yeah, kells, that video pumped Rashida up in my estimation acting wise. It was very funny.

And her character on Unhitched is Kate.

I think it's an ankle bracelet. Rashida has referred to being a practicing Jew so it may be quite unlikely she has chosen to be tattooed. Also in these photos, the bracelet seems to shift around. It's not always in the same position on her ankle.

Unfortunately, I'm probably the only who doesn't like the shoes. I like classic Mary Janes so it's the open-toed part of her shoes that I'm not to fond about. 

That's what I love about them. Classic and also not. I think they are best shoes I've seen her wear.

Rashida wasn't on Rachael Ray today.  I just went through the episode on FF.  No Shida.

I'd like to go through her closet and throw out the fug dresses that don't flatter her.  And throw out the hideous pair of shoes she seems to love.

Classic, eyegypt.

She makes a lot of faces on Unhitched, which I watched for the first and last time last night. 

She's obviously studied John's face-making ability on a regular basis.

Well, I took it off the to-be-recorded list on my DVR. Is that an answer?  :-\   


From the Cheers & Jeeers section of next week's TV Guide (The Tudors cover):

Quote

JEERS to Unhitched for squandering the considerable charms of Rashida Jones. The Office alum deserves better than playing a suddenly single woman who spends way too much time hanging out with the three male losers in the Farrelly brothers' crass new Fox sitcom. And are we really supposed to believe the best genetically-blessed daughter of Quincy Jones and Peggy Lipton can do is date the leprechaun mascot of the Boston Celtics? Jones would be wise to divorce herself from Unhitched as quickly as possible.

Title: Re: Rashida Jones #2
Post by: halfbaked on March 17, 2008, 06:13:13 PM
Hollywood Reporter says that the Unhitched audience is down 8% from last week.

Quote

Fox came in second with six half-hour comedies, mostly repeats. A rerun of "Family Guy" was the highest rated (6.7 million, 3.4/9). Fox also aired originals of "King of the Hill" (6 million, 2.8/7) and "Unhitched" (4.4 million, 2.3/6), the latter falling 8% from last week.

more ratings at the source (http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/hr/content_display/television/news/e3ia4f8fd9d37edc76efbf89edb4b9ab1a6)

That's kind of disappointing since the third episode was by far and away the best and dare I say...actually decent!!?? Rashida looked amazing in it (all dressed up the whole episode) and it was the first time I watched and didn't see Karen in her performance.

Post by: Hot Dog Fingers on March 17, 2008, 07:50:58 PM
It's not that big of a decline, but 4.4 million doesn't look good next to other shows that are generating ratings over 6 million viewers. I wouldn't be surprised to see a second season pick-up though by the network if they are down on pilots.

tvguide.com (http://www.tvguide.com/detail/tv-show.aspx?tvobjectid=283046&more=ucepisodelist) says RJ will be on Rachael Ray March 28th

And apparently FOX is bringing an Unhitched ep forward to air b/w The Simpsons and Family Guy, albeit repeats (I think). If that doesn't boost the numbers nothing will. At least they're giving it a shot to survive compared to that Jezebel James thing which did really bad and has already had the ep order cut. Still, as an RJ fan I'm not sure I want it to stick around.

Yeah, haha. I don't like the show but she does look good on it. In the promos where she's wearing a yellow top and then dark bluish-grey office attire she looks really nice. Her performance is the redeeming feature for me and she's the best by far at making something out of almost nothing.

Couldn't agree more, sabrina.  In the about 3 dialog-free seconds between gags, while she sat alone silently on the steps after being humiliated at the party, she actually managed to  harvest some real emotional depth from all the forced madness... in between getting covered in spaghetti and groped on a horse.

Right now I'm really enjoying the novelty of seeing her in such a different setup, although not to the exclusion of what she could be doing with her time.  I don't imagine the show will outlast my patience, though,  as long as Rashida's in it and my TiVo's FF button still works.  (Although I wouldn't be the first to get burned by underestimating America's love for fart jokes.)

Quote

So you've moved on from what is arguably TV's smartest show to Unhitched--a raunchy Farrelly brothers series. Defend yourself, Miss Jones.
Should I go after more erudite material? [giggles] The script just made me laugh really hard. Outrageous things happen to not-so-outrageous people. It's somewhere between Seinfeld and Sex and the City--well, if those girls had hairier legs.

Since she's such a little thing, I thing she easily can wear the bias-cut ruffles of the skirt. The added volume isn't a problem for her. I like the skirt, but the top—not so much. I don't know if it's that the girls are lacking proper support or that her girls are not voluptuous, but the top looks sloppy/saggy on her. I want to hoist everything up by the black trim.  ::)

No doubt about it though, she's a gorgeous woman.

To me, it is an okay dress. Not particularly flattering but not Go Fug Yourself worthy. But if I were going to wear Prada, I would want it to be a knock-your-socks off kind of dress. But this is coming from someone who buys most of her clothes at the Gap, so.

I’m with you Sora, not liking this dress.  Halfbaked linked an interview from Women’s Health that Rashida did.  She sounds really cool.  No wonder JK likes to “hang out” with her.  Other than the fact that she’s a beautiful girl, that is.

That outfit is a big miss from me as well. Overall it's too fussy w/ the sleeves, frills, false neckline, contrasting piping, belted waist, tiered skirt and slashed-open back. And then the fabric is a print, two-toned and layered! :(

The top half makes it stand-alone the ugliest dress I've seen her in. Still, she is beautiful and like my roommate said "the dress is temporary but the face is permanent"

Her interview with Craig was very cute. She was dressed with a lot less flair than she had on Conan. I guess one of her nicknames is Ra-Ra, which she doesn't like. (I don't blame her!)

My gym had the new Women's Health and there were a couple other things in it:

< Besides Steven Alan stores Laloo is also available at Barneys

< 5 songs w/ meaningful lyrics for her are The Beatles "The Word", Fleetwood Mac "Dreams", Sam Cooke "A Change Is Gonna Come", Jay-Z "Regrets" and the Once soundtrack "Falling Slowly". (She quoted specific lines but I didn't copy them out)

Plus a 2nd photo:

pic source: my friend Fifi (http://i259.photobucket.com/albums/hh320/yardley14/003b.jpg)

Is it just me, or do it look like they airbrushed her leg? Either that or that is a really deep chair. The perspective and porportions look a little offf...kinda like that photoshoot of Jenna a while back.

But from the waist up its stellar.

I'm not sure about the legs, but it looks like they airbrushed her freckles away.  I hate when they do that.  No matter what though, she's a very pretty girl & you can't hide that! 

I tried to stay up & watch her on Craig last night, but I fell asleep.  Can someone link it? ;D

Is it possible we just can't see the freckles because the picture's too small?  I agree, that they shouldn't airbrush away freckles.

It could be a matter of makeup, though, also.  I know when I used to wear makeup all the time, I had a lot less freckles. ;)

I've scrolled back through the last few pages and didn't see this mentioned -- There are two pictures of Rashida and her mother (both of whom are looking absolutely breathtaking) and a small accompanying article in the new Allure. 

Unfortunately, I don't have a scanner, but it's the issue with Christina Applegate on the cover.

No, it looks more to me like it was taken outside.  (It's a close up of both their faces, so it's hard to tell.)  It's not a paparazzi shot; it's from a professional photo shoot.

Okay the one I saw was outside at night and Peggy Liptoin was in black. Boy she did NOT pass ANYTHING on to RJ. U'd never know they were mother and daughter.

I don't know, I think there are some definite similarities when you look at pictures of Peggy Lipton when she was younger:

Yes, I think you need to look at the pictures of Peggy Lipton when she was more Rashida's current age; I've definitely seen the resemblance.  Of course, I watched The Mod Squad -- when it was originally on.  ::)

Are you sure it's the issue with Applegate? I ask because this blogger (http://makefetchhappen.blogspot.com/2008/03/mariah-carey-allure-42008.html) has RJ's article in the April issue with Mariah Carey on the cover. If I see it at the store later, I wouldn't want to buy the wrong one.  ::) No, I can't wait until next week when I go to my hair stylist and could rip the page out with his blessing. Why do you ask?

Gah, halfbaked -- I'm getting my magazines confused! (Maybe my husband's right about me having way too many different subscriptions....) ;D

It is indeed the Allure with Mariah on the cover.  (I was thinking of Self with the Applegate cover.) 

And you feel free to snatch that page right out at the hairdresser's; everybody does it!  ;)

ETA: I just looked at the pictures you guys linked to of a young Peggy Lipton and a) good lord that woman is gorgeous and b) she looks almost preternaturally young at 61 -- in the Allure photos, she doesn't look all that different from in the imdb photos.  Amazing.  (And she's not had work done.)

Nice little interview; she's funny and charming and looks lovely. "The sky is purple, Ra-Ra"
Also she pronounces "Rashi" with a long 'a' - maybe that's how her name is too? I've been saying it like a skin disease (rhyming with 'smash')

I've been saying her name the same way as you have. Rashida/Smashida.

I don't think she pronounced Rashi with a long a because that would sound like Ray-she. To me the first syllable sounds more like raw. Kinda. Raw-she. If it were written with diacritical marks, a circumflex would be over the a. A circumflex looks kinda like a little upside v.

Okay. I've just stepped into we don't give a s**t territory. I'll stop now.  ::)  :-\  ;)

I just watched the clip again on my DVR. Craig pronounces Rashida the way you and I do, sabrina. But then again, he got Laurence Fishburne's name wrong earlier in the show.  ;D

I've always heard Rashida pronounced like "Ruh-shee-duh."  I'm fairly certain it isn't supposed to sound like 'rash,' a skin condition.  It may change for the nickname Rashi, though; I don't remember how she was pronouncing those various nicknames. 

It was a nice interview, I thought, and she really seems to be going away from those bag dresses, so -- hooray! :)

Alright - I need to preface this with ... I MAKE NO PROMISES....

I just read the WH mag, and for reason, it finally hit me - Rashida used to sing backup with Maroon 5.  My sis used to take pics of Maroon 5 - in Boston.  I asked her if she knew the name (she's never really watched TO *gasp* - i KNOW [/craig ferguson]) and she said it was familiar, but to her that could mean anything.  Anyways, I'm tring to peruse her old Maroon 5 pics and see if there is any glimpse of Rashida -

I doubt it will turn anything up, but if there are any, I'll figure out a way to post them here.  I make no promises though!

Rashida's Rachael Ray Show episode finally aired today. I think most of us have heard/read all of the discussion points before. Sorry for the length. I tried to be brief.  :o

• clip from Unhitched

• enter RJ wearing black shirt with puffy sleeved blouse—sleeves are elbow length

How cool is it to work on The Office? Amazing/so many talented people/it shouldn't be that fun/dream come true/feel like I won some sort of contest

Do you think Karen'll come back? I hope so/they didn't kill me off yet so there is an opportunity

Do you keep in touch with any of the cast members? Yeah/I just saw a bunch of them this week/I miss them From other parts of the conversation, I'm led to believe this was taped before Unhitched started airing.

Tell everyone who your parents are. QJ and PL/discuss old photo of them from the '80s/Q is wearing a leather sport coat/show pic of RJ with Q at the Oscars two years ago/family pic with Mom, Pop, and Kidada

So...growing up in Q's house...did you date every musician? No way/my dad would kill me/if a guy was cool with my dad then you knew the guy was cool

Harvard..Smarty McSmarty Pants Thank you/I was a big nerd/parents are way cooler than me/I stayed on a computer for years and years/before it was cool

commercial break

• clip of RJ at home(?) It doesn't look like the Manhattan apartment so I'll guess it's LA. She identifies some of her favorite products. I like nice smells. Dry shampoo/Klorane/grease problem with my bangs/in my car to get a little bit of the grease out/Mason Pearson hairbrush/Susanne Lang Midnight Orchid perfume/anything Burt' Bees/especially body moisturizer There's a shot of all the products on the coffee table and there's one she didn't talk about. It something from the Kerastase line but I couldn't see the label clearly. It was in a gray stand-up tube dispenser thingy.

What's the name of the show? Unhitched/i'm so lucky/Hollywood has a reputation for people being jerks/I've had the best time/like candy at Disneyland/discusses premise of the show—four friends trying to get back into dating/sexually compromising scene with a monkey

What is Laloo? tee shirt line/partners/goddaughter/I love you/organic cotton tee shirts/Steven Alan

Anything else comin' up? new movie/starts April/Paul Rudd/girlfriend

Is Renee Z... in that one, too? another film/Chilled in Miami/very lucky/very blessed

Are your parents happy for you? They love me and want me to be happy/I could be doing anything

• discuss learning musical intruments/grew up playing piano/now learning guitar

• funny homeowner convo
I hear you're a new homeowner. How's that going?
great/great/different from apartment living/I'm responsible for repairs/need specialists for everything/wood on the walls/wood on the floors
You should just get a very handy fella.
I have a couple handy fellas but they all have their specialties.
You totally missed the boat on that. *passes her hand over RJ's head*
Oh, oh, that kind of fella!
I meant a man that knows how to be handy.
Oooooh!
That's gotta be why she ain't got one. She went to Harvard but this stuff goes right over her head.
You mean hire one. Hire a boyfriend. Yes, you're right I should get a handy fella.

• chit chat/watch the show/yadda/yadda

Maybe Peggy's had work done but just didn't tell her daughters? :-\ I can never tell unless it's really obvious on the woman but her face looks untouched in those event photos posted in "JK & RJ".

Either way, in this day and age I'd never trust a staged magazine photo to show how a woman really looks. Esp. Allure, who are so notorious for tweaking every shot starting w/ their extreme close-up covers. The shoot is a flattering one too - backlit and soft focus - so I think the photo itself has def. had work done.

If you read the article (scans (http://rashida-jones.org/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=122)) she uses tons of treatments and stuff on her skin everyday, and has for ages.

And halfbaked nice job on the interview recap. Rachael Ray is just too unbearable, even w/ RJ as guest .

She looks great in both of those pics, but how old are they?  I noticed the date on the mag was 3/2/08, but her hair is so much shorter these days.

they could be extensions.

I posted in the RJ thread a month ago when her Page Six cover came out but no one said anything so I figured everyone had already seen it. *shrug*

Since the 1st thread was deleted, I have no idea if this was discussed/asked already.

In this Daily 10 interview (http://johnkrasinski.net/videoarchive/displayimage.php?album=39&pos=1), when Sal asks Rashida and John about Ivy League battles, John suggests that Rashida wanted to go to Brown but was rejected and had to settle for Harvard (I'm sorry, no one actually settles for Harvard).

Anyone know if this insinuation is actually true? I'm just curious. Don't ask me why. I really don't know. I just know that I want to know.

nepats, that link goes somewhere which asks for me to login; I can't see the actual interview you're talking about.  You may want to provide a link which gets us all to what you're talking about or to paste it in here and credit the source.

Kidada Jones launched her Disney-oriented collection, "The Art of Pooh" last night in Los Angeles. Her sister Rashida and mother Peggy Lipton were in attendance.

Rashida's sister looks like she might be a bit too skinny.  It's hard to tell since all we can see are her forearms, but she looks a little bit bony.

I like her Mickey Mouse shirt, though; I assume it's part of her line.

I'm just going by my eyes, with that side-view of Kidada.  She's mostly covered up, so it's difficult to say, but she looks very bony to me.  If she does have an eating disorder, I hope she's getting help for it.  It certainly seems that she has a loving and supportive family, which is a huge help for anything anyone goes through. 

In any case, that's a nice looking trio.

As if winning the genetic lottery wasn't enough, Baby Alba just scored big time in the swag department.

Some of Mama Jessica's friends and family descended upon Ever After Teahouse in Studio City Sunday for a baby shower.

About 35 people made it through a gantlet of paparazzi to get to the party, including Alba's sister, Rashida Jones, Jaime King and Kim Kardashian, who told E! News her gift included "stuff from my store, Smooch."

Just saw this in tomorrow’s NY Times Arts and Leisure’s Section (http://www.nytimes.com/2008/04/13/arts/television/13dave.html?_r=1&ref=arts&oref=slogin). Sounds really funny. Wonder if Mr. Bierko will have his costar, RJ as a guest in his tub show?

Quote
Star of Stage, Screen, TV and Bathtub

QUESTION No. 1 for Craig Bierko: You’re a roguishly handsome guy with a diverse résumé of film and television roles, a Tony nomination to your name and a bright career still ahead of you. Why would you squander all of this to be the host of a satirical Internet talk show where you interview your guests in a bathtub?

“That’s a good question,” Mr. Bierko, 43, said, “and I’ve been getting it a lot.”

Question No. 2: No, seriously, why would you do this?

“My mind works differently,” he said in a telephone interview after further contemplation. “Puccini closes his eyes for inspiration and gets ‘Nessun Dorma.’ I close my eyes and get this.”

Mr. Bierko’s magnum opus is the Web video “Bathing With Bierko,” a comedy short created for the Turner-owned comedy site Super Deluxe (superdeluxe.com), in which he interviews John Malkovich about his youthful weight loss from a Jell-O diet and his frequent travels to Portugal, among other subjects, while giving his guest a sponge bath in a suds-soaked tub.

“We weren’t trying to make any sort of statement,” said Mr. Bierko (pronounced be-AIR-ko). “It’s a talk show reduced to its bare essence.”

The sight of him stripped to the waist (at least) and applying a soapy lather to Mr. Malkovich’s head may be a bit jarring to fans who discovered Mr. Bierko via his performance as Harold Hill in the 2000 Broadway revival of “The Music Man” (less so to those who recognize him from goofy comedies like “Scary Movie 4” or the Fox sitcom “Unhitched”).

But to friends and colleagues who have followed the entirety of Mr. Bierko’s career, the three-minute clip might be the purest expression of his true, truly offbeat voice.

“For my opinion Craig has never had a space to just be as funny and quirky and odd as he genuinely is,” said Dan Pasternack, the vice president for content at Super Deluxe and a longtime friend of Mr. Bierko’s. “This is the first time that Craig Bierko — as Craig Bierko — has done a project where you really get to know him.”

As someone who has done his time on plenty of talk shows in four- and five-minute installments, Mr. Bierko has bristled at the format. “People are very skilled at making it look like you’re watching an actual conversation,” he said, “when in reality you’re watching two men wearing makeup have a conversation over a pretend desk. It’s ludicrous. Nobody ever explains why there’s a desk there. Is that this guy’s office?”

At the same time Mr. Bierko is a devoted fan of talk shows from a bygone era, when they were still presided over by the likes of Merv Griffin and Dick Cavett. “I’m the kind of geek who, while everybody else went to play after-school sports, I ran home to catch Mike Douglas,” he said.

The idea for “Bathing With Bierko,” which he said he had been toying with for several years, was to take the artificial familiarity of these programs to its illogical extreme: to relocate the interview in a comically intimate setting while playing the scene completely straight. For his debut broadcast, Mr. Bierko was assisted by the deadpan performance of Mr. Malkovich (the two actors share an agent) and his friend Carrie Fisher, who let him shoot the segment in her bathtub, in a Los Angeles home that was previously owned by Bette Davis and the costume designer Edith Head. (“Any remarkable Hollywood history there,” Mr. Bierko said, “we’ve ruined it.”)

The viral success of “Bathing With Bierko” has not only made it possible for its creator and star to produce more installments of the show, which will have their debuts on Super Deluxe in the weeks to come; it has also taught him that even a talent with his unusual mixture of high- and low-culture credibility can find artistic fulfillment on the Internet.

“I was enjoying a kind of mainstream semi-success, and that was fine for me,” Mr. Bierko said. “But this has made me feel a little more brave about putting myself out there. Just to pop out of the gully that you can find yourself rolling into. Gravity pulls you toward things that are mainstream, and you have to will yourself out of that.”

While he declined to name the celebrity visitors who will be joining him in future baths, Mr. Bierko said he had at least determined how to adapt the show in order to accommodate female guests.

“We think we’ve figured out a way to do that, where we don’t border on anything untoward,” he said. “It’s nothing remarkable, it’s just the angles that we would shoot it at. In the same way that we don’t have an overhead shot when we’re interviewing guys.”

Just curious, did Rashida's new show get cancelled yet or is it still on?  I watch Fox everynight (for the news & then Seinfeld) & haven't seen any previews or anything about it at all. 

I wonder if this means she's available for the new office spin-off?

Fox only ordered 6 episodes, pretty sure all 6 aired, and I really doubt they will renew. However, not official yet. But I give it about a 5% chance of returning.

I don't think anyone will know the fate of the show until Fox releases its schedule next month. I guess it all depends upon the quality of Fox's pilots for next season. Right now, I think the show is going to be cancelled.

re Instyle, our scanner's busted but RJ says for her bday a pro taught her & her friends the moves to Justin Timberlake's "My Love" video. Cute ;D

While internet stalking her co-star Jason Segel I noticed a cast update for their I Love You, Man (http://www.variety.com/index.asp?layout=chart_film_prod_d&dept=Film&recordid=1117786742) movie: RJ + Rudd + Segel + Samberg = awesome! Pressly plays her best friend/bridesmaid and since they're currently filming further cast info is still TBA, but that's already a good solid cast.
I'm kinda excited to see her playing a bride to be. Hopefully she's not an unlikeable neurotic bridezilla type, although there's comic potential in that. Either way it's a good career move IMO since buddy comedies & wedding movies are both popular genres, meaning RJ could have a bona-fide hit movie on the horizon.

I know, right? Andy Samberg rules. These pics of filming at The Grove in LA were floating around (ont?) and a poster said Jonah Hill was there too. Idk how reliable that info is though. Someone else thought the girl here was RJ. I don't, but maybe it's her stand-in.

My friend quoted in the Farlanders thread (from Focus Features) says someone at Universal told him RJ was suggested for Mila Kunis' role in Forgetting Sarah Marshall. I know that's like a third-hand source and therefore not very reliable but still. I could believe her name getting brought up, what w/ the similar look and 'sympathetic w/ a sharp edge' thing they're capable of.

Post by: bitter pill on May 06, 2008, 04:16:23 PM
RJ has to get out of TV and start diversifying herself before she'll ever actually be offered any of those roles.

sabrina's friend would probably agree that as of now RJ would never make the cut with the fiancers...unless she or her family/friends were major ones...for a leading role. She just hasn't proven herself enough to be a BO draw.  And I'm not saying this because of anything I feel for her.  I worked for a producer before I graduated and was told that Christian Bale...who i think is safe to say outside of Office fandom is more well known than RJ...wouldn't be considered enough of a draw to finace a "risker" film. So I don't imagine tye gave RJ much though beyond a passing nod and a "yeah she fits, but she's not going to bring in the BO numbers that Kunis or Rudolh will".

Sad, but true
I don't believe Kunis or (especially) Maya Rudolph have proven themselves to be a "BO draw." Maya Rudolph brings in "the BO numbers"? I have a hard time believing that. And if we are comparing, Rashida Jones has had more roles and more starring roles than Maya Rudolph.

I don't see RJ being cast in FSM. Not because she isn't "a name." She just isn't the typical Apatow boys' hot chick. First of all, she's hot but not strut-around-in-a-string-bikini hot. She is also a bit older than the stereotype. While I'd like to see her in a successful comedy, (preferably with Paul Rudd, which makes ILY,M a wish come true),  I'm happy she wasn't cast in that particular role.

I'm behind in tv news. Has there been official word from the network regarding the fate of her sitcom?

Oh, and if anyone comes across a scan of the InStyle article, please post!

Both Kunis and Rudolfh are substanially more well known than Rashida. Rudolfh becuase of her long stint on SNL and her supporting roles in film and Kunis beciase of the decade (or close to it) long That 70's Show and The Family Guy. They've had more expousre and better work than Rashida to this point. So, relatively speaking, the people crunching the numbers will tell you that either of them are more likely to bring in more money than Rashida, especially since the only thing that she's been given decent critical reviews for in the past 5 years in this country was the Office.

Her character in Unhitched is esstentially the same role as Karen, so she's not picking material that will show she has the ability to play beyond that type (whihc is a problem with John as well), and with as poorly as Unhitched has done, she's not showing she can carry a project if she is a principle lead. she needs to stop trying to be the "funny girl" since that doesn't seem to be what she's best at given her work as Karen and in NYLON.
This really is all just your opinion and not any kind of "industry" fact.

Your first sentence "RJ has to get out of TV and start diversifying herself before she'll ever actually be offered any of those roles" applies to RJ but not Maya Rudolph? She's got SNL and that's pretty much it. Rashida's been on Boston Public and The Office, as well as a number of starring and guest spots in other tv shows and films. Her career is far more diverse (with more jobs) that either Ms. Kunis or Ms. Rudolph. All it takes is a look at imdb.com to see that.

Your opinions about her roles and acting ability are a totally seperate tangent from the discussion at hand. Perhaps you think Ms. Kunis and Ms. Rudolph are far more talented. That's great, but it is also your opinion and not insider industry knowledge.

I think Rashida Jones's career is just fine. I cringe at the thought of what the likes of Simon Cowell-directed career would be for her.

I think Rashida has done a great job in Unhitched, given the material she has to work with.  Your implication here is that Unhitched has the scripts/timeslot/direction/resources to be a huge success, if not for Rashida's acting, and I find that implication rather self serving in light of your admitted resentment of Rashida.


I'm very conflicted here.  From what I know of her, I find Rashida talented, articulate, intelligent.  I like her acting and respect her work on the political and social fronts, and she appears to have a nicely grounded demeanor, wearing her uncommon beauty with a grace that is unfortunately just as uncommon these days.

But then BaraJam, who's amazing insights I so value, comes here and all but proves Rashida's a miserable failure with proclamation after proclamation of such unassailable logic... unhindered of course by her well documented petty jealousy or resentment of Rashida.  How am I to reconcile this conflict?   

I'd ask Rashida, but she's probably too busy engaging in yet another bout of that rare brand of sensuous-yet-unabashedly-passionate lovemaking that probably happens daily with Bara's own TV-boyfriend.  I imagine he's so taken with her that he's near tears afterwards (as he pulls her quivering, glistening body against his and cradles her head, squeezing her tightly and running his fingers softly through her hair while they drift happily off to sleep.)

But I digress.  I suppose that until the day I'm bitter enough over Rashida's success to try to spin anything she does or doesn't do into a biting critique of her character or competence, I'm going to have some trouble reconciling the chasm between BaraJam's potent intellect and my own appreciation of this actress.
 
Sad, but true.

I'm pretty sure this has been asked before, but I don't feel like digging around in the old thread, and I figured it couldn't hurt to have the info repeated, but:

Does anyone know where you can watch NY-LON online?  I know it's not out on dvd and it's not on Hulu.com or any of those, but I thought I remembered someone saying you could watch it (or possibly download it?) somewhere.

(Yeah, I finally got dsl a few months ago, so this information could actually be of some use to me now.  ;D)

You might try the BBC sites or Youtube, both have might have older video.

And I'm sorry if people don't like my opinions about RJ's bankablity, but its based on what i've learned at my past jobs and from what friends in the industry have said to me about her now.  No matter what people on this board think, RJ is NOT as recognizable outside of Office fandom as the Kunis' and Rudolfh's of the industry.  I'm sorry but her minor guest starring roles before the office and her stinit on BP just don't  compete with the insane popularity of the other women's shows.  She might have done more projects, but They've done ones more people recognize. Seriously F&G and BP vs SNL?

And please, I am begging everyone, if you don't agree with me fine, but its disgusting to come on these boards and find Porn used as a counter argument.
I think you are stating your opinions as fact. I wish you would label them as your opinions instead of wrapping them in some sort of insider knowledge basis. That fact that you are using "the Kunis' and Rudolfh's of the industry" really discredits the rest of your statements. There are "Rudolphs" of the industry? You mean the long list of actresses who have been on SNL and nothing else? And who is Mila Kunis? I wouldn't call the popularity of That 70s Show "insane."

I guarantee people know Rashida Jones' name far more often than Maya Rudolph. Look at the imdb.com resumes. Looks at the magazine features. Let's look at the things we can measure other than our own opinions and word of mouth from "insider friends."

Okay, this is really starting to bug me.  I searched through the entire LJ community, and all I could find was a link to some clips.  No luck with BBC or BBCAmerica either.  And the only thing a search on YouTube and Google Video revealed is that there are a lot of people with pantyhose fetishes out there.  :o

RJ has to get out of TV and start diversifying herself before she'll ever actually be offered any of those roles.

sabrina's friend would probably agree that as of now RJ would never make the cut with the fiancers...unless she or her family/friends were major ones...for a leading role. She just hasn't proven herself enough to be a BO draw.

He just mentioned to me in passing her name came up re FSM, nothing beyond that. Presumably it means RJ is on the radar now but I've got no idea of her standing in the industry in general. She's only just starting to get substantial film work in any case.

I would've been pleased to see her get Kunis' role in a studio comedy but not overly surprised. At least, that was my reaction to the I Love You, Man news. It was pretty much "cool, can't wait" not "OMG! how did that happen?" but then again she is on my radar. People would definitely still go "who?" or "WTF?"

Sabrina, that girl kind of looks like her from the back but what on earth is Jason Segal wearing?
ikr? That cardigan! He looks so sloppy, esp. next to Rudd's character. Maybe the guy he's playing is a deadbeat or something. I prefer him with shorter hair too.

Post by: girl7 on May 06, 2008, 10:38:25 PM
zerohero: You win at life.  Seriously.   :-*

One thing I've noticed lately is that Rashida seems to be getting recognition from the press (TV Guide in particular) that praises her work on TO and laments the fact that she's too talented for (or her talent is "wasted" on) Unhitched.

I watched the pilot, but haven't seen any other episodes (more because I keep forgetting to TiVo it than anything else), so I couldn't comment on the show or her performance in it. 

Still, I'm always glad to see/read recognition of her talent, because

1) I like her; she comes across in interviews as an intelligent, articulate, remarkably grounded person

2) I think a lot of people dismiss her because of her pedigree, so to speak, and I can't imagine how frustrating it must be for her to be aware of that fact

(NOTE: The above comment is not directed at anyone in particular; it's just a random observation.  Not interested in engaging in a heated debate here.   O0)

3) I also believe Rashida gets some (IMHO) unfair criticism simply because she was cast as Karen.  I can see the logic, given the popularity of Jim & Pam; that, coupled with the fact that (again, IMHO) the writers did not do her character justice, oftentimes spills over onto perceptions of Rashida, when really, the fault is either with Karen for being with Jim, or with the writers for not fleshing the character out

I feel compelled to reiterate: These are my opinions; I am so totally fine with dissenting perspectives.   :D  (See zerohero's graphic for perspective....)

Or consult this guy, who seems fairly zen ------------> O0

Alright this is how I was told at my last job these decisions are made so if you want me to qualify this then this is my professional opinion baised on the facts told to me by the people I have and currently work with.

The finaciers don't care about IMDB.  They care about the quality of and money made by the persons previous projects. I had it orignally explained to me when I asked about Christian Bale. They look at Box Office reciepts and or Neilsons for the shows they've headlined, and to a lesser extent they look at critical reviews. Being on SNL, being on a long running show like That 70's Show, is a big deal when people want to invest money in a project.

They give the production co lists of people they are allowed to cast, its not jsut a creative decison by the director/producer, they only get to look at/offer the role to the people the finiancial backers say its okay to.  And, from what the people I work with have said, they don't consider her someone who would sell tickets over An SNL alum (like Fey or Poeheller or Oterri or Wigg) and the hot chick from a long runner Fox Comedy. 

Bear in mind this is the same argument about John Krasinski.  He's just getting higher calibur work than her because he's got A-listers in positions of power who've taken notice and have the authority to fight for him to be involved.

I think I've probably gone fairly OT for this thread, but there you go.  Again, this has nothing to do with my personal opinions of this person.  I'm just telling you all what I and people around me think.
I don't think anyone outside of SNL fans knows who Maya Rudolph is (because she hasn't been in anything else, for the most part). I don't think many (previous to the recent release of FSM) outside of those watching That 70s Show, knows who Mila Kunis is. This is just the same argument you used. Rashida Jones has more than just The Office and their fans. When I talk about imdb, I'm talking about her resume. She's had more roles in more significant shows and films than those two combined. I can also tell you what I and people around me think, too, if you wish. And you can put as much value in that as you wish.

Despite all this, somehow Rashida Jones, the poor poor actress that nobody seems to want in their films is somehow still finding work in significant films with significant stars. Pretty much end of story there. Reality disproves theory in this case.

I've got all 7 episodes on this computer courtesy of an ages-old post on the RJ LJ community. If you/anyone could direct me on how to get them online I could upload them over the weekend. They're .avi files and approx. 350mb per ep.
I tried megaupload, but it takes forever to upload files that size. If posters can't find the episodes elsewhere, maybe we split the duties.

I don't think Channel 4 (http://www.channel4.com/entertainment/tv/microsites/N/nylon/) is streaming it any longer.

RJ's also in Life in Flight, an indie that screened during the Tribeca Film Fest. Starring Patrick Wilson, Amy Smart and Lynn Collins it's a small supporting role. I hadn't even heard about this before today.

Wasn't Back to You a fairly successful show? I mean, I didn't care for it (they pulled out the secret lovechild thing a little early) but I got the impression it did fairly well.

They had a first season order of 6 episodes, but Fox still has the option of ordering more for 08-09. Upfronts are soon, so we should know by then. Fox picked up a new comedy called The Inn and renewed 'Til Death, so her show is the definition of one "on the bubble."

Here (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unhitched#U.S._Nielsen_Ratings) they are. IIRC it held on to most of its lead's, Family Guy, viewers (there were articles posted about that, but perhaps they are in the the first mysteriously disappeared RJ thread). Not stellar, but not poor.

I've never seen the show, though I want it to be canceled so Rashida Jones can do other things.

Fox is fairly notorious for not giving even Emmy-winning shows with low ratings at chance. *cough*Arrested Development*cough*

I'd say it's fairly unlikely that Unhitched will see the light of day, but it is always a possibility, especially with them axing Back to You because it was too expensive to produce. I'd imagine that Unhitched is fairly inexpensive.

Not saying that AD wasn't treated poorly or that I don't miss it dearly, but Fox didn't cancel it after one season.  It lasted for three season.  They treated the last four episodes like shit, yeah, but they DID give it a chance and its ratings never improved. 

The problem with Fox is that they change their schedule around all the time and then wonder why people don't watch their shows.  It's like their schedule has ADD. 

There is a possibility of the show being picked up.  They picked up 'The Loop' for a second season, even though they ran it over the summer and did no promotion (another issue with Fox).  So, that could happen with this show.

To clarify... I love Rashida, but I hate the hell out of Karen. (I think a lot of people feel the same way.) I didn't just hate her because she was with Jim, but I really, really didn't like her overall character and personality.

I think Rashida needs to move on from Karen and The Office to bigger and better things. Things that would preferably be on another network run by another show runner so there's no possibility of crossing over.  ;)

I think a lot of people feel the complete opposite.

I don't want RJ on the spin-off, either. I think the spin-off has a good chance of stinking. I like the suggestion of film roles that was made above.

This is a complete change of topic and tangently RJ related, but... I was trying on shoes the other day and a mother with her two kids were nearby. They were each bringing her shoes to try on. The little girl was named Kidada and was adorable. She brought her mom these hideous chartreuse sandals with a fake flower attached and the mom acted like they were beautiful. It was really cute. I've never known of someone with the name Kidada, other than Rashida's sister.

FYI -

The drama NY-LON (ABC TV Studios/Beacon) is dead.

source (http://deadlinehollywooddaily.com/)

Kind of speaking of which, I walked by the Alibi bar (where Astrid works in NY-LON) completely on accident today when I was heading somewhere else. I've been wondering where it was I watched the series but I just so happened to spot it today.

I was kinda excited about it.

In case you were interested it's on MacDougal Street...

Title: Re: Rashida Jones #2
Post by: Hot Dog Fingers on May 15, 2008, 03:18:28 PM
I'm not sure Rashida would even accept the job of series regular on The Office unless they offered her the spin-off to herself. Guest star for an episode or two? Yes. Regular/recurring role? No. Now that she is getting a bunch of film work, she probably doesn't see the need to do much television. I'm sure she was relieved when Fox canceled her show.

I just don't want her to have anything else to do with TO other than to finish out her storyline for good. Primarily it's because I l.o.v.e Rashida, but i just don't like her with Jim, or really John for that case.

The comment about the show being "from the makers of..." was made by John K and was an assumption made on his part because they've clearly stated that no main characters from the original are leaving.

Everything else from everyone else has said that no one knows what it is going to be about yet.  There are only just recently rumors about who is going to run it.

I doubt it'll be about Karen/Utica, though.  I'm thinking they may want to find a different sort of office with a different product that is slowly losing its place in the market.

Back to RJ...I think she's better severed working her way thru supporting or guest starring roles for now, she's got to build her chops in one area and stop dabbling in every creative outlet she finds. She needs to take tie to hone her talents in a single arena before she spreads herself too thin and become famous for being famous instead of a particular talent
This is your opinion. There are many types of acting careers. Perhaps she doesn't want the one you envision for her. Perhaps she likes to "dabbl[e]" in many "creative outlets." There are many people who do.
Title: Re: Rashida Jones #2
Post by: cdgeiger on May 15, 2008, 07:07:01 PM
I'm very confused by the idea that she's not concentrating on acting.

In the summer of 2006 she did Brief Interviews.
In the fall of 2006 she was hired for The Office.
She worked there until 2007. 
In 2007 she made a pilot for Fox and worked on that show.
In 2007/2008 she filmed 'Chilled in Miami.'
Right now, 2008, she's filming 'I Love You, Man.'

This all seems like pretty steady work.  Further, looking at her imdb page, she's been working steadily through the decade. 

How is she not focused on her work as an actress?

Further, leading roles aren't just handed out.  How many stories are there of people who struggled for years to get somewhere?  Look at Jenna Fischer and, hey, she's never had a leading role in a tv show or film.  Yet, I doubt you can find anyone who says that Jenna isn't successful. 

Rashida is a successful actress who is on the rise.  Eventually, she may just be getting leading roles.  However, if she doesn't want that, if she prefers to be more of a supporting player/character actress, good for her.  Nothing wrong with that at all. 

As far as her other ventures into music and designing--these are definitely side projects compared to the acting and it's smart, business-wise.  She's making herself into a commodity.  She's creating a brand and the more people here this brand, the more successful she will become.
Title: Re: Rashida Jones #2
Post by: cdgeiger on May 15, 2008, 07:27:07 PM
I greatly disagree with you.  We do not know what she is doing every day.  You see pictures from parties (which I didn't realize that charity work was wrong...) but it's not like she's clubbing every night.

I think John is the only cast member to be filming a movie this summer.  Guess the rest don't care about furthering their careers! 

I mean, come on.  First off, the industry is just coming off a writer's strike and it's possible that an actor's strike is next.  There's been a lot of talk of projects being put on hold until there is a decision by the actors.  There are a lot of people not working right now because of it.

And I think she has been working very steadily over the last couple of years but no one can work 24/7.  And it seems like that is what you expect her to do so that she can earn "credibility." 

Further, the only people who are so concerned with who she is dating is a certain segment of the John Krasinski fans.  It's not major gossip and no one seems to care unless they have some vested interest in the guy.

It's pretty insulting, too, to compare her to Paris Hilton, who is famous, least we forget, because of a sex tape.  Rashida, on the other hand, is a college grad from Harvard (of course, I'm sure she wouldn't have gotten without her parents being her parents, right?) and doesn't seem, to me, to flaunt her family's status or wealth.
Title: Re: Rashida Jones #2
Post by: cdgeiger on May 15, 2008, 08:00:33 PM
Pretty sure she's most famous for playing Karen on 'The Office,' at this point. 

Again, no one works all the time and we have no idea how many auditions she's going on. 
Title: Re: Rashida Jones #2
Post by: cdgeiger on May 15, 2008, 08:25:46 PM
Crazily, I do have a concept of how much people work in the entertainment industry.  But you have no actual idea how much Rashida works or doesn't work.  You judge her because she goes to a couple of events a month.

And I think that being part of a very successful show for a year is a great thing to have on your resume.
Title: Re: Rashida Jones #2
Post by: bitter pill on May 15, 2008, 09:13:33 PM
Not arguing with you there, and I'm goning to agree to disagree with you on how much she works at improving her acting since you have one idea of what she does and I have another.
Actually, it appears the argument is you have one idea of what you believe she does, while the other side is we don't know what she does because no one here is her, knows her, manages her career or works with her. You are making a grand judgment on largely incomplete knowledge.

She has worked. She is working. Sounds like a successful acting career when there are many, many others who can't say either about themselves and greatly wish they could.
Title: Re: Rashida Jones #2
Post by: Team Karen on May 15, 2008, 09:26:27 PM
bitter pill just largely beat me to the point, but here goes anyway.

Quote
If she wants to be a serious actress she needs to concentrate on it. That is a fact universally known by all trying to make it in this busines, if she is content being ok a alot of different things than dong one thign very well then thats her choice. I don't invision much of a career for her in acting, by now I think everyon here knows that, but she will never be really good if she doesn't focus on it more than her other projects...  My opinion, but one that is shared by people beyond this board.

This is an example of why good advice flows down, not up.  Those looking for success in any endeavor, be it show business, academia, industry, etc. are best served by heeding the advice of those who have achieved greater success in the industry than they themselves have.  You would be better served attempting to emulate her career path than trying to undercut and second-guess it at every turn.

But I suspect your trashing of her career/acting skills is just more bitterness oozing over from the likelihood that the man you're so taken with will never know your name (except maybe on a restraining order), but has her name burnt so indelibly into his heart.  I imagine that painfully longing love-drenched gaze that Mr. Krasinski portrayed on Casino Night is probably nothing compared to the way he looks on his dear Rashida every single day.  It warms my heart picturing it.

I'm reopening the thread, but Rashida hasn't been on the show all season, and yet, it's the only thread in here that is consistently causing problems.   If it keeps up, this thread will be closed for much longer.

From her Page Six Mag cover story (http://www.rashida-jones.org/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=127):
Quote
...But for now, she's captivated with acting, in a leisurely yet committed way. "I love acting, but I don't lose sleep over it. I'm not a hard body," Rashida says. "There are all these things they say you should do if you really want that career, and I don't do those things, necessarily. I just try to do well in auditions and do well when I'm performing." And if she happens to get famous along the way, it'll be a happy, if familiar, accident.

Jenna has spoken about not nec. wanting to be a movie star and being happy w/ her present level of fame, etc. Sounds like RJ has modest goals too.

w/r/t her not working enough - Unhitched was only officially cancelled yesterday! 24 hours ago she was ostensibly the female lead on a network show. Granted it wasn't a good show but her even getting the opportunity counts for something, doesn't it? She's not in dire straits or anything, w/ 2 TV gigs and 5 films (in whatever capacity) in the past 18 months. Plus now her contractual obligations to Fox are over she's free to audition for and accept more jobs. It's a tad early for the career obituaries and comparisons to Paris Hilton IMO.

RJ was on The Office in S4 - pre-strike in "Branch Wars".

Given the timeline she set up in that Pahe Six interview, I don't doubt someone like John was what she needed to decompress after losing one boyfriend to her friend and the two have a baby (which I'm guessing she was finally acknowledging she was dating Toby McGuire when he met his wife) then ending/or being dumped by her fiancee who has a reputation for being a little too into the party scene.   Maybe that was why tey were abole to recognize their differences and come out as frineds afterwards, becuase he is fundamentaly different from her previous relationships, if even 1/3 of the bad press surrounding the Ronson's is true

Huh? This (http://www.rashida-jones.org/gallery/thumbnails.php?album=127) is the Page Six timeline:
Quote
John and Rashida dated a couple of years ago, after she broke up with longtime love Mark Ronson. She hooked up with Mark after dating Tobey Maguire. Single for the past two years, Rashida is interested in starting a family, but it doesn't have to be in the usual ways.[snip]
It says she dated Tobey Maguire. There's nothing there about the circumstances of their break-up or his life after her, let alone an acknowledgement on her part of those rumours.
Title: Re: Rashida Jones #2

Rashida was already dating John when Tobey and Jennifer had their child, so I doubt she was heartbroken by the news.  ;)

It's probably true but my point was the Page Six article is not a source on that. RJ didn't "acknowledge" it, you just think it adds up.

So whther or not they hooked up and got knocked up WHILE she was still dating him is irrelevant, that is still akick in the teeth to know your still single while your ex and your good frined are happily married with baby.
It could be, definitely. But RJ does say she's happy with her life (http://www.ajlmagazine.com/content/012007/rashidajones.html) as is:
Quote
She also wants to have a family “some day soon,” but she’s happily unattached at the moment. “I spent so much of my life not being single that it’s actually refreshing. I find the value in my life comes from my friends and family and I feel very at peace with myself,” she reflects. American Jewish Life, Jan/Feb 2007
I believe she's being genuine but if you don't that's cool. It just figures that since neither of us can ask her how she feels the next best thing is quoting her.

I like the tank tops because of the gathering in the back; I think it's a cute detail.  Unfortunately, while I appreciate them being organic, I can't spend that kind of money on a simple tank.  I'm anxious to see if they come out with anything else, because judging by her everyday style, she'll come up with some classy but casual items.

OK sorry everyone for dragging it on but people putting words in my mouth or misrepresenting me really irks and that principle was my issue.

sabrina I never said she wasn't happy with the way her life is now.  The Page Six Can be taken as a source on anything it talks about since the writer spoke with her, and no doubt had to verify that little fact before she printed it (That she wasi indeed romantically involved with TM). In a previous interview with wither In touch or US Weekely...not sure which since they're all the same really...she said she had introuduced TM to his wife.[snip]
I know that; you said it'd be a kick in the teeth to be in that situation. My post was "this is what RJ says".
And I guess we're cool about the Page Six stuff. My thing was there's a big difference b/w drawing a conclusion (Rashida dated Tobey. Rashida and Jennifer were friends. Ergo Tobey met Jennifer while dating Rashida) and having it confirmed by a source.

Kate6058, have you seen the Lucky scan? The line has fisherman-style pants too (click for bigger).

I wouldn't buy a tank either but the dresses are super-cute and reasonably priced to me. At least the $68 jersey ones are - the woven cotton one RJ's wearing is $185. Hopefully that's a misprint b/c the print ones are my faves but for all I know that's a good price for organic materials.

I read in a Women's Health mag at the gym Laloo would be at Barney's but that was ages ago. No idea if they still/ever did carry it.

Ha, how is 48 bucks for a tank top reasonably priced? That's insane!

Ok so maybe I am cheap, but I work in retail and am going to school for fashion and retail management. After learning how INSANE mark ups are, I will never pay full price on anything!

I'm thinking those shirts cost like 5 bucks to make (high estimate), and selling it for 48 bucks? No thanks.

Some of that stuff is sort-a cute. Not too fond of it though. Oh well.

They need a tag on those pants to tell me how they're supposed to be worn? Um...no. If it involves more than putting two legs in and maybe adding a belt, but you're selling it as comfy casual, it's too complicated.

I like that tank top but I could find that at Target or Old Navy for $10.

Okay, thats where the communications breakdown was.  In one of the slew of junk-it interviews for Unhitched Rashida talked about how she had been the one to introduce Toby to Jennifer because she was Rashida's friend, so it I wasn't saying that they were still dating when he met Jennifer, just that it had to suck to know your the one who introduced your ex to his wife and mother to his child and that she was your friend....whether or not they were still dating at the time doesn't make much difference really since it'd still suck a little bit.

I have an ex-boyfriend I'm friendly with.  I didn't introduce him to his wife, but I was really glad when he found someone and got married, and I was thrilled when he and his wife had kids.  I wasn't interested in him anymore; why wouldn't I want to see him happy when he's a good guy?

Sometimes people are upset when others around them get married and have kids, and it hasn't happened for them.  Other people think, "Wow!  I dodged a bullet there!" or "What are they thinking, having kids so soon?"  In the absence of any data, I assume that Rashida is "fine with her choices."

Likewise, if this Jennifer person is a friend of Rashida's, Rashida might just be glad that she found someone.  Rashida may even be proud of her matchmaker status.  Who knows?  It's nebulose.  ;)

Yes, I found it here (http://fashiontribes.typepad.com/main/2005/11/disney_couture_.html). I'm not sure but what the cards relate to AIW, as  you say. I kind of like the big bamboo shape of the hoops.

I wouldn't buy a tank either but the dresses are super-cute and reasonably priced to me. At least the $68 jersey ones are - the woven cotton one RJ's wearing is $185. Hopefully that's a misprint b/c the print ones are my faves but for all I know that's a good price for organic materials.

I read in a Women's Health mag at the gym Laloo would be at Barney's but that was ages ago. No idea if they still/ever did carry it.


I had seen both of these photos, but I haven't seen the pants or the print dress available to buy anywhere, so I wasn't sure if there was more stuff floating around out there.  And I think the pants are kind of cute, but I'm guessing I couldn't pull them off because of my lack of height.

Also according to stevenalan.com, laloo's line only goes up to size 3.  So much for it looking good on women of all sizes. Sheesh

I'd imagine that's '3' as in 1=small; 2=medium; 3=large (e.g., I just bought my daughter a size '2' Paper Denim & Cloth t-shirt, which was a medium)....not '3' as in 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, etc.

They do look good on women of all sizes: teeny, really teeny, and "whoops, that one turned sideways and I lost her" teeny.  Are there other sizes?  ::)

TLK, I know nothing about RJ's line in specific, but I think the sizes must run 1/2/3 as in sm/med/large. (See my post #313, in this thread, earlier today.) :)

I saw it, colette, but from the following post it seemed that was perhaps not the case.  Not that it matters to me -- I wouldn't pay those prices, and the styles would look bad on me anyway. :D

Post by: Kate6058 on May 21, 2008, 11:03:20 PM
Those are kind of ridiculous sizes... I don't even think Rashida or her partner could fit into those.  Maybe the 3, but it certainly wouldn't be really lose like she usually wears her clothes.

That is my assumption as well. I know James Perse also follows similar sizing. Here is a sizing chart conversion:
(http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b8/TangledinBlue/Products/capturedata78-2.png)


I like that tank top but I could find that at Target or Old Navy for $10.
I don't believe you can find the same thing at Target or Old Navy. You may find a substitution at a price you are willing to spend, but I doubt it would be organic cotton, be of the same quality and have the same detailing. Quality costs in food, automobiles, clothing, whatever.

I spend more money on basics, since I wear them more than anything. I find the value is actual better in the end when hems don't fray, material doesn't ball, things don't lose shape and fit is better. The price per wear is lower. There are other things I choose not to spend the money on for quality, as well. To each his/her own.

she looks alot taller there since she doesn't have one of those god aweful belts on
She also has no defined waist, which purpose those god awful belts serve.

She didn't literally mean she'd find Rashida's line at Target or Old Navy. She meant they have similar things, that are just as good and only cost 10 bucks. Sure organic cotton and all that jazz is more expensive, but come on.. 48 freaking dollars? Not gonna do it. Especially when I know it probably only cost them 5-7 bucks to make (we'll go a bit higher here for argument's sake). That's a 685%-960% mark up. Not necessary.

(I'm in fashion and learn about this stuff, and it bothers me to no end that it's OK to mark up clothing however you want. Personally I think either double manufacturing cost, or 250%. That should be enough.)

Ummm.  Hi.

I'm butting in again because I have to comment that I simply don't understand the constant extended debate on all things Rashida related.

There's an old saying...If you don't have something nice to say - don't say anything at all. 

I think we may have reached that point now.

This discussion goes around in circles without end.  I think all those here need to agree to disagree and move on.   And by moving on I mean wait till there's a new article or news item re: Rashida.  I think we've covered Laloo and her relationship with JK pretty thoroughly.

You don't have to like her, her clothes, her acting or her character on The Office but I don't see what good comes from rehashing the same thing for the umpteenth time.  And just because you don't like her, her clothes, her acting or her character on The Office doesn't mean that you need to express that opinion at every opportunity.

I'm exhausted just by reading these posts.  I'd appreciate it if y'all could find a new subject for a bit. 

Thanks.

xoxoxo just stepped in because, while it does look like a fairly innocent discussion, whenever people keep harping on and on about the same thing (usually making the same point over and over again about disliking something related to Rashida) in this thread, it inevitably degenerates into fighting.  Every single time.  This has been going on for months, and the moderators are really tired of this.  All we're saying is, let's not go there yet again because we don't want to have to resort to closing this thread.  That was really the only reason why xoxoxo offered some suggestions.

There was discussion about the clothing line, among other things, in the first RJ thread. However, that thread is no longer on the board.

Yeah, the conversation often drifts into my POV vs. your POV in here (and guilty as charged on that).
Maybe there should be a rule in this thread about the subject being (mostly) RJ and not yourself? E.g. "Laloo looks like this" instead of "I would/wouldn't pay that much for organic clothing."

[snip] Thats when she looks her best, in those sheath dresses like...what was the mag that had the photo shoot of her in a sheath sparkly evening gown taking a picture of the people taking a picture of her....that was cute

Yves Saint Laurent vs. Ports 1961
For me the black outfit trumps the maroon one. The dresses make all the diff. - a short hemline sorta balances her out while the ruffles make the obi-style wrap look disproportionate. YMMV on what does/doesn't look good, of course.

It illustrates your point about being cut up by them (although I don't hate this). I agree a monochromatic look is the better option when wearing one but it helps when the dress isn't too 'busy'.

I totally forgot about those pics. She had a voluminous pale-coloured dress on, right? And a cardigan or blazer? The shoes probably were flats/sandals since she wears them a lot.

The black gladiators are very similar to the ones here, except they extend up around the ankle:

I know which pics you are referencing (white dress, black sweater, funny caught-by-the-paparazzi faces), but those weren't the same shoes. They're close. Black sandals, but not the gladiator style. I remember those pics because I thought her outfit was cute. It wasn't too different than one she is wearing in the recent pics.

See I don't understand WTH those dresses are considered fashionable.  The waist is just FUBAR, its like it can't decide what it wants to bee so it too tight to hang straight, but too lose to make any definition. and that to the short frilly skirt and it looks like your trying to wear a dress you got when you were 6.
I disagree that the waist of the dress is fucked up beyond all recognition. I think it is very much recognizable as a waist of a dress.

Do you think she will show at the MTV Movies Award then?
I also wonder if she will be attending the awards ceremony. It doesn't seem like something she'd attend unless she was promoting something or supporting someone. I assume she'd more likely attend the parties than the main event.

haha Andy Samberg is one of the actors on SNL that is notorious for his film shorts (i.e. Laser Cats). He did a movie called "Hot Rod" that didn't do so good, so that's probably what they are referring to when they say "No Hot Rod 2."

But why are they even bringing up Andy Samberg out of nowhere?  It makes no sense.  This is what's before that bit:

Quote
IESB chats with the lovely Rashida Jones on the set of her newest film I Love You Man starring alongside Paul Rudd and Jason Segel.

First I have to say that Rashida is even more beautiful in person than she is on TV. WOW!

So after interviewing most of the guys from the film we were finally treated to talking to the multi-talented Ms. Rashida Jones who we were told recently has become somewhat of a fan of Rock legends Rush, okay maybe I'm just exaggerating just a bit.

And then the first 'question' is "We're going to destroy Andy Samberg."  ???

Also, I object to any destruction of Andy Samberg.  His shorts are the best thing about SNL.  (TWSS)
Title: Re: Rashida Jones #2
Post by: sabrina on June 05, 2008, 04:18:12 PM
Samberg is in the movie - that's the only reason I can think of why they'd be joking around about him and his movie career.

On a related note this on-set piece was on MTV (http://www.mtv.com/movies/news/articles/1588412/20080530/story.jhtml?rsspartner=rssColdFusion) earlier in the week
Quote
MTV News caught up with Segel and Rudd at a Los Angeles golf course where the two were filming a scene for their upcoming bromance, the story of an about-to-be married guy who "finds out that he doesn't really have a close friend in his life to be a best man, so he sets out to find one," Segel explained. "That would be me."
In this particular scene, their budding friendship inspires the pair to play golf and subsequently slow up the whole course trying to teach Paul's fiancée how to play.
"Paul convinces me to go out on a double date with him and his fiancée [played by Rashida Jones] and her friend Hailey [Sarah Burns], but I don't like to golf with women in the movie," Segel said.
I guess we'll get to see her play golf (or try to).

Which bracelet is that...it looks too thin to be the Pocohontas

Thanks for the pics Kim. It looks like she's having fun there (and a few drinks!) and that colour is lovely on her IMHO.
I'm w/ you in being excited about ily,m. It turns out Andy Samberg is playing Paul Rudd's gay brother. Awesome! Their parents are JK Simmons (the editor in Spiderman) and Jane Curtin (an "ignorant slut" ;)).

Doesn't JK have a black hybrid SUV, too?  With Hollywood being so eco-conscious, I suppose many a star has such a car.

cdgeiger is right!  It is, without even a hint of exaggeration, every other car you see in this town... 3/4 of them being black for that matter.

Quote
[on Robertson Blvd.] Call my mom and duck into Starbucks:
DON: Mom, guess who's in front of me in line? Jim's ex-girlfriend.
Mom: What about dad?
DON: Not dad. Jim from The Office.
Mom: Jan?!?
DON: No, Karen. [DON gets a suspicious look from a very grungy looking Rashida Jones]
Mom: Oooh! Well tell her I said hello...and tell her we really miss her on the show.
DON: Ok, mom.

It also dredged up this very old, random, rumour-based item about her and Josh Hartnett (http://entertainment.myway.com/celebgossip/star/id/10_13_2004.html) (why now???)
Quote
Star Online
JOSH HARTNETT TOO SLOPPY FOR LOVE
October 13, 2004
Josh Hartnett, 26, is apparently looking for a mother more than a girlfriend. A source says he has already called it quits with Canadian-born model Daria Werbowy, 21, because he's "incredibly immature, like a frat-boy."
The source says Josh traditionally leaves his clothes all over the floor and only picks them up on laundry day -- before dropping them off for his girlfriends to wash. "He makes a mother out of every girl he dates," said the source, adding that not everyone puts up with his high domestic expectations. "When he was dating Rashida Jones, 28, [the daughter of music impresario Quincy Jones] she had none of that! I mean, she grew up in a house full of servants. She won't even do her own laundry -- let alone his!" The Wicker Park star and Jones split up after just six weeks together, just before he met Werbowy. Hartnett's rep denied to Star that the actor was dating either one of the beauties.
It is sourced to Star so yeah... not very reliable. Have to say though, Josh is very cute but I wouldn't do his laundry for him laughingicon

I see her driving around alot since I moved.  I guess she lives near me.

Really?  Considering how much you dislike her, you can't be thrilled by that coincidence.

(Me, on the othert hand, would brigning cups of sugar to her door every night.  She's just too cute and talented. The only "famous" person I live near is my local weatherman.)

Part of why I dislike her. She is either having a perma bad day or she is a big huge sour puss. Seriously never seems happy to be going where shes going.

Some people have a naturally blank or negative looking expression.  Other people tell them, "Smile!" or ask what's wrong, but they sort of thought they were smiling, and they're actually feeling perfectly happy.  Rashida could be one of those people.  She seems pleasant from her interviews, so I personally would give her the benefit of the doubt.  (Plus, glass half full and all that. ;))

Off-topic: Then there are people who are always smiling.  I had the pleasure of meeting macolly at the convention, and she was a regular smiley Joe. :)  She'll have the cutest baby ever.

OMG, now her facial expressions while driving don't meet w/ your approval? Of course you are entitled to your opinion but that is really scraping the barrel for reasons to dislike someone IMHO.

I do get your sour puss thing from some of her red carpet photos though. She doesn't really smile brightly while on her own or posing, often doing a tight-lipped sort of thing. But then standing w/ friends or at the actual event she's like grinning and laughing and seems to be enjoying herself. I'm too lazy right now to dig up examples but she's spoken about being uncomfortable (and maybe a little self-conscious?) in front of screaming photogs, flashes going off, etc.

...or don't forget Universal Pictures is part of that company so it could be for a movie role.
UMS (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universal_Media_Studios) is the TV production company so it def. relates to potential TV work. Despite getting movie roles it makes sense to me b/c of the regular income and a series would suit her lifestyle.

I'm just really meh about the rumours of...

I love RJ and think she's good at what she does - playing 'real' characters mostly in dramas. Straight talking women who are kinda tough and often on some sort of mission in life. They're not funny girls. She's def. got a sense of humour IRL though; live at UCB ASSSSCAT doing monologues she was hilarious and awesome and in interviews is bright, funny, 'with it'. I'll give whatever comes of her deal a shot but it'd be cool if she did a drama this time.

ETA: those glasses look hot! And she's always hanging out with Dave Annable when they're at the same event. They were even at that hotel/casino opening in the Bahamas together that time. I wonder how they know each other?

Maybe they're friends with benefits. All the perks of a bf/gf with none of the time consuming commitment.

How do you get from them being casually photo'd together at a few events to 'friends with benefits'?  ??? Kind of a big leap there. Just saying.  ::)

Well NBCU does produce Law & Order.  She could be good there or any other crime drama really.  But I'm with you that she doesn't fit well with comedic characters.
She hasn't really played any though (at least I'm blanking right now). NY-LON was a r'ship drama, Wanted a cop show. In Boston Public she was a singing straight character and in Freaks & Geeks a boyfriend-stealing bully. Even in Unhitched the 'laughs' were set-up to be the sucky situations she got into, not the character herself.
She was funny in Wainy Days, Chappelle's Show, stuff like that. I liked Karen okay and she served a purpose but the lack of funny was such a let-down. That's all I meant since Rachael in the UK version was pretty great pulling pranks, doing a Bee Gees dance routine, etc. RJ could've handled that sort of stuff just fine IMO.

re: Dave Annable
I'm often just surprised (but not really) at all the people she knows. She actually went to the Bahamas that time w/ Claire Danes and her Dad. Turns out Dave was in Little Black Book. I've never seen it but maybe they had scenes together or something, became buddies through that project.

Little Black Book was actually pretty cute, if you can stand Brittany Murphy.  (Plus, it didn't have a predictable ending, which I liked.) 

I don't recall them having any scenes together, but they could certainly meet just by being on set at the same time.

I don't think she looks any thinner per se; perhaps it's just the dress isn't as bulky or billowy as some of the others she has been wearing. It looks good on her. I love the shoes with that dress! The dress is neutral, so you can pull off a great, bold color like that.

I always thought the shoe rules were about as follows:

Don't have your shoes be significantly lighter colored than your dress.
Your shoes should match your dress or be neutral (black, navy blue, tan).

You evidently care enough make a post about it here.

I really like Rashida's look. The color of the dress is beautiful with her skin. She glows. I can't imagine what it would be like to go to parties for Prada, Gucci, Chanel, Donna Karan, etc. and get to wear their dresses.

Anyone know what she's up to work-wise? Has that movie with Paul Rudd finished filming?

[I'll split them between a couple spoiler bars this time since some people had a hard time downloading the "Sam Mendes" ones.  For the record, the way it (keeping the window open on long spoilers) works for me is... I hover my mouse over the spoiler bar; then when the window is open, I scroll down using my arrow keys.  This keeps the window open, and I can move the mouse to click on the links.  That work for me at least!  But, hopefully this will be easier for everyone.]

Much karma for the uploads Modern Girl! Thanks for taking the trouble on all those. As per imdb (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1155056/fullcredits#cast) Carla Gallo is Denise, Jon Favreau is Barry, Rob Heubel (Human Giant) is Tevin, etc... Aziz Ansari plays a Eugene.

It really sounds like a movie where you're going "ooh, it's that guy from that movie" b/c there are lots of minor characters doing their weird thing. Like the High-Voiced Guy thing reminds me of that Seinfeld episode and the actor is from The State/Wet Hot.../Superbad, and Lou Ferrigno is in it as himself kicking Jason Segel's ass. It could be really fun.

And in those Rashida's character is "Zooey" which is kinda left-field as far as names go. I wonder if it's an intentional Salinger reference like Holden and Banky in Chasing Amy? That'd be pretty random though IMO, in this type of movie. It's probably more "hey, here's a cool, exotic-sounding name" laughingicon
Title: Re: Rashida Jones #2
Post by: sabrina on June 18, 2008, 11:30:40 PM
The Zooey thing just stuck out to me b/c of a character in J.D. Salinger's Franny and Zooey - where an emotionally fragile young woman goes on a bad date and has a nervous breakdown/ existential crisis. Kinda heavy if that is the reference, although I do kinda see a connection there laughingicon
Zooey Deschanel is the only time I've heard of that name IRL too, but that sounds pretty random.

Sabrina I don't know about Chasing Amy but thats the what Zooey Deschanel spells her name...I always thought it was pronounced ZOO-ey but apparently its ZOH-ey, I wonder if there's  a connection there.
Yeah, I think you're right about regular 'Zoe' b/c her nickname is Zo (i.e. not Zoo) in the other scenes.
I was LOL and already picturing people in their roles so that's a good sign.

 ;D Aw, Kev, I think you mean after Labor Day. ;) And I remember the days when you had a pair of brown shoes, tan shoes, black shoes and white shoes. When I was a kid in the 80's I had a pair of Keds, a pair of sneakers, and a pair of black Sunday shoes and white Sunday shoes. That was it. But now, my closet is full of all kinds of colors and styles. My favorite shoes right now are a pair of gold strappy slingbacks. I wear them with everything!

I liked her place before the makeover, with all the clutter.  A woman after my own heart.  ;D


Also, I found another picture of her at the same event on Us Weekly's website (http://www.usmagazine.com/hot_pics_gallery?o=15).  She looks less skinny from this angle; maybe it was the lighting in those first pics?

You're right. Or it's just the angle of the picture.

She looks so cute. I love her teeth showing smile way more.
I wonder if there are anymore pictures of that event.

Despite the clutter her place kinda looked bigger before, esp. in this one (http://www.flickr.com/photos/63122153@N00/2488257572/). I think it's the floor-to-ceiling curtains and the mirror, which make the room seem taller (and narrower) like the comment on that pic says. I covet the new couch - so gorgeous! - but it's too bad they put her TV out of sight though. She also has a keyboard set up in the earlier ones.

Actually, they seemed to have changed it to a more "exotic-sounding name": Shandi (http://movies.ign.com/articles/881/881519p1.html)
I think I would rather have Zooey. But Shandi is still a pretty cool name.
Yeah, I like Zooey too kim. Shandi reminds me of the Kiss song called that. It also sounds like an alcoholic drink, as in "I'll have a glass of shandi, thanks."

Thanks for the pics and movie info Sorano.

ETA: Hollywood Reporter (http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/hr/content_display/news/e3i817c2c7aa26bf3da7f7f5d438af2cd20) says RJ is a panellist in the pilot for a new "Match Game" series.
Quote
Is Sarah Silverman the new Brett Somers? Could Norm MacDonald be the next Richard Dawson?
The comedians have signed on to be on the panel for TBS' updated "Match Game" pilot, shot this week in Los Angeles. Also taking seats are Super Dave Osborne (Bob Einstein), Kids in the Hall trouper Scott Thompson, Rashida Jones ("The Office") and Niecy Nash ("Reno 911!").
Andrew Daly ("Semi-Pro") is serving as host for the pilot, which is being executive produced by Robert Smigel of "Saturday Night Live" and Triumph the Insult Comic Dog fame.
The host Andrew Daly is the guy who played Ben Franklin in Mindy's episode.

I think they put the bed in a weird spot. It's sort of covering the bathroom door.
But yes, I wonder where they put that TV. It was in a good spot before, facing her bed.

I didn't even see the keyboard when I first saw the pictures!

Well then it looks like this is what she signed the deal for. Cuz Isn't TBS part of NBC too?


According to NBC Media Village, TBS is not part of NBCUni. Isn't TBS, along with TNT, now part of Time Warner?

I'm not sure. I got the impression it was a talent deal for another series. Like halfbaked mentioned, TBS is a separate entity (Time Warner?).
Title: Re: Rashida Jones #2

Then NBC must have agrements with TBS since several of its shows ae syndicated on TBS along with FOX.


Yeah, I think NBC signs an individual syndication contract with another network for each series. There's no one contract guaranteeing that all series go from NBC to TBS.

Aw, I love gladiator sandals - esp. those w/ the studs on them over the plain styles. RJ has nice legs and narrow ankles so they look good on her IMHO. Her waist looks narrower in that med shot kim posted too.

Kidada is 34 (the same as Jenna, incidentally) but I wouldn't guess that. Her and RJ are gonna age really well, esp. if you look at their Mum. KJ also seems young 'in spirit' but mostly b/c I associate her w/ her H'wood friends & clients who are 20-somethings, and also her style. There aren't too many women who can dress like that and get away w/ it, y'know?

It's also kinda funny/weird she dated Leonardo Dicaprio and then RJ dated Tobey Maguire a few years later. That's too bad for RJ since your sister's ex who is also your ex's BFF is pretty much off-limits. I think it's so cute RJ goes for boyish 'goofy' guys but Leo would def. be my pick out of those two :D

Thanks for the pics guys.

Rashida was interviewed on the set of I Love You, Man by collider.com. Although the site date is 7/8/08, I feel like I've read all of this before.   :-\

Quote


Q: With the improvisational nature of this film, is it a bit like doing The Office?

 
Rashida: The Office is brilliantly written by a huge team of people, and then they give us the opportunity to be a part of that towards the end when we're doing takes and stuff. I don't necessarily feel 100% comfortable that my contribution would be in any way near as brilliant as the writers' contribution, so I keep it to a minimum. But with somebody like John [Hamburg], he's so talented. And he's so good at establishing characters and the subtleties... dynamics of relationships that it makes it easy to go into what we need to go into, and hopefully add something funny. He lets us be that *thing*. He's created such a good groundwork that it makes it easy to do.

There was a thing recently (posted here?) where Mark expressed gratitude after Quincy publicly praised his work. Paraphrasing but he was like "it means a lot he still speaks highly of me after I broke off my engagement to his daughter". I'm not sure what that implies - it wasn't that amicable? It's pretty rare splitting up ever really is though, esp. when you were expecting to get married.

They were pretty cute together...

Oh, I didn't know people were wondering that about her. I've seen a couple of others pics, incl. one where she has a pack tucked into her waistband, but can't remember the where/when to find it. Count me in as thinking she's quit though, or at least talked about trying to.

She went to a charity-related cocktail party (http://www.style.com/peopleparties/parties/scoop/072508VANT) last week in LA:
Quote
The pages of Vanity Fair's Young Hollywood issue sprang to life on Tuesday night when the magazine wrangled its freshly minted NBTs—Next Big Things, of course—for a cocktail party to benefit the Children's Defense Fund. In a scene reminiscent of a freshman-senior bonding session, teen queens Emma Roberts, Kat Dennings, and Amber Heard mingled on the rooftop of L.A.'s Louis Vuitton boutique with Rashida Jones, Angie Harmon, and party co-host Amy Adams. The registers were open and shopping till you dropped was encouraged (part of the night's sales went to the charity), but being young and in Hollywood, some opted to lounge on the alfresco couches to soak in the sun's last rays --style.com.

It's a bit late but thanks for the info Cheeb :)

I just noticed Tobey Maguire is going to be at the premiere too. Besides him and JK she is friends and/or worked w/ Bill Hader, Justin Theroux, John Hamburg and Judd Apatow (kinda) as well. Can't think of any other connections right now but there's probably more. It's crazy how many people she can be linked to one way or another.
Anyway I doubt the Tobey thing is too awkward since she's been to events where he (and often his wife) have also attended, eg. some stylist's celebrity-packed wedding (http://popsugar.com/1529861).

Companies throw parties for anything and everything these days, don't they?

And Rashida seems to go to every. single. one.  :D

Well, there's probably free stuff, and she keeps her face out there which helps her get roles, don't you think?  Also, did I mention free stuff?  I'd go to all those parties, too. ;)

So my cousin met Rashida Jones at fashion week today. I would give the pic but i haven't asked him. He said that she was really nice and that no one noticed her, so he decided ask her for a pic and she said very nicely, "Yeah, sure no problem!"
He also said she is quite small and skinnier than he thought, and of course, beautiful/beautiful complexion.
Apparently she was with a couple of girlfriends.

She does look lovely.

I take it this is in NY for Fashion Week? I wondered if she would attend any of the shows. She is still pretty close to Charlotte Ronson. I wonder if she made it to her show? Probably not since Mark was there "canoodling" with his teenage girlfriend (ick).  But, you never know.

Wasn't she scheduled to attend the Democratic Convention? I didn't see any pictures or reports of her being there. I saw John Kerry one  night and I wondered if maybe she would be with him and his family.

via Google Alerts a blogger w/ more theories on RJ's lovelife (http://imaginaryfrend.blogspot.com/2008/09/oh-young-love.html), this time her and Scott Speedman.
Quote
last time i spotted Rashida, we were all the Greek Theatre afterparty for the Radiohead show. she was with Scott Speedman, who is definitely hot, but he never really sticks with any girl. he seems flighty or something. but that was so long ago that Reese and Ryan were together there too (over a year ago now). since then i think Rashida has been linked to her "Office" co-star John Krasinski.
Since she doesn't really elaborate who knows if RJ was with him with him? I have seen pics of them hanging out together so they do know e/o.
This isn't a slight against Jenna in any way but I do like that RJ prefers to keep people guessing about her personal life. At least that's what I would do. That said, I totally get why JF would clear up the David Spade rumour or want to share about being happy and having a cute boyfriend. Whatever works for them is cool w/ me.

This article isn't directly about RJ, but it does concern two people she knows well: Quincy Jones and Mark Ronson. Thought it might be of interest:

Quote
Amy Winehouse and Mark Ronson to record together again

Their last collaboration ended in tears - OK, swearing and door-slamming - but Amy Winehouse has now patched things up with Mark Ronson.

The dynamic duo are teaming up again to record a track for a tribute album to music legend Quincy Jones.

It will be the first time that Mark - who produced Amy's Grammy winning album Back To Black - will have worked with her since Amy stormed out while they were working on a theme to the new Bond film, Quantum of Solace.

The ruck ended with the track going to Alicia Keys and Jack White instead. D'oh!

Our insider tells us: "It's going to be explosive stuff.

"Amy first met Quincy backstage at the Nelson Mandela gig in Hyde Park in June.

"He knew who she was and she was so thrilled to meet him. Her performance clearly impressed him - he was raving about her. This is just the opportunity she needs to show the world she has still got it."

Other celebs rumoured to be on the album include Mariah Carey, Usher and John Mayer, so the pressure is on for Amy and Mark to create some dynamite material.

Being back at work could be just what Amy, 25, needs. She was in tears at the Berkeley Square Ball in Mayfair last week, wailing: "This isn't a life - I'm a mess."

Let's just hope that this time she and Mark get on like a, er, 'House on fire...

I think what Lisa said on "The Bonnie Hunt Show" was that there are outlines written for the episode of what should happen, but the dialogue is improv. I think that's how "Curb Your Enthusiasm" is done also, but I could be wrong.

My reaction precisely. Doesn't make sense...if it were her, and he wanted to protect her, why even go there in the first place? I have to believe when he publishes these items - even that originate from other sources - he has a pretty good idea who it is.

RASHIDA Jones is coming back to the home screen. Jones, who had a role on "The Office" for a year, was just hired by that show's creators and NBC to star in the new show that will be headed by "Saturday Night Live" alumna Amy Poehler. Aziz Ansari is also slated to be onboard. Jones was sorely missed last season after she left "The Office," where she played a romantic interest of John Krasinski's character. She and Krasinski started dating in real life after meeting on the set.

(Yes, I know the part about how she met JK is incorrect...but that's besides the point. What's interesting to me here is her being cast on the new show, not what she is, was, how, when, or will be doing with JK.)

And I don't see how playing Karen would type cast her unless she is going to be an obstacle for a main couple on this new show.

Yeah, it'll be the same type of character, she got type casted early on.

I'm a bit confused....are you saying this is your impression or that you know for a fact that RJ was cast early on with the intent to have her play a Karen-like character?

Type Casting happens early on in people's careers, casting agents and directors for an impression off of them and they are used to play the same type of character over and over and over.

My impression is, as John has, until the Sam Mendes project, been type casted as the young hero, RJ has been type casted as the Other Woman, or the Beta Female that's willing to do what she needs to become the Alpha....kinnda like Wilson's Girlfriend in House.  Competitive, the foil to the female lead.  Her F&G Character, her role on TO and Little Black Book...all were driven females, but they weren't the lead female.

Yet her character wasn't at all like that in Boston Public.

I'm not saying type-casting doesn't happen and I'm not saying that I think she's up for an Emmy anytime soon (despite that I don't think she's the worst actress I've ever seen your mileage (and others') may-and most likely does -vary) but unless someone tells me more about her new character than her name I'm willing to wait and pass judgement later.

I agree Gooo-Tee, I disliked Karen, but I loved Rashida's portrayal of her. She took a very hard role. Who wants to be the foil of the main romance? She did a great job with a hated character

I'm actually looking forward to this show now. I'm glad they cast Rashida. Good for her.

RJ has usually been in the Confidante teir, with the exception of Nylon, wher she was the Engénue.  Am I making any sense, its been a few years since I've studied the different role types and I'm rusty at descibing them to people outside of  the "theatre world".

The word you are looking for is ingénue (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ingenue_(stock_character)).

The other word you are looking for is tier.

I should clarify, she's not been the "leading lady" and I'm using theatrcial terms, that might be more specialized in TV....like....ugh....Okay how Meryl Strep in Damages would be the Leading lady, but Rose Burn would be the Engénue (sp?) and whoever plays her female friend would be the Confidate or (other woman).  And in Ensembles like Unhitched it muddies further.

Sorry, but as a mega Meryl Streep fan, I have to point out that she's not even in Damages. You're thinking of Glen Close.

Post by: zeebee on November 18, 2008, 07:46:33 PM
Okay…I will admit that when I read about the news of Rashida being cast in the spin-off, I felt a pang of jealousy.  I woke up not feeling so great – feeling unattractive, hopelessly incompetent at my job, and life, etc. and so for whatever reason, the news just sparked a not so nice feeling (slight bitterness?) on my part.  If I were younger, it would have probably led to me coming here and writing a few underhanded, or passively aggressive mean things about Miss Rashida.  I just happen to be older, and a little more willing to call myself out on the source of my reactions lately….

So anyway, the point of that rather personal preamble is this – I’m not here to judge anyone who’s been commenting on this thread.  Really, I’m not.  I’m just here to ask if it’s really worth it to get on this site and say mean things about a girl that I’m going to guess no one here knows personally or has any real reason to feel vehemence for?   I’ve been reading this thread for some time now, and as far as I can tell the only thing that these types of posts accomplish is just more negativity.  I mean, someone says something mean about Rashida and pretty soon, people start being not so nice to each other here.  Not sure how that happens exactly, but it’s what I’ve noticed.  I doubt Rashida is very much effected by any of this, however.  She seems to be doing just great.

I’m not saying that anyone here has to like Rashida, or even that anyone has to stop hating her.  Just maybe that it would be nice if sometimes people would just heed the age old advice and just not say anything if there is nothing nice you can say.  I can tell you from experience how liberating it is to stop feeding some of that negativity.

That’s all.  Feel free to roll your eyes, ignore, or whatever this old, nutty, new-agey lady.  It’s just something that I needed to say today.

That lipstick! Yikes! I love the hair and the outfit, but that is just a horrible color/application of lipstick. Its hard to make Rashida look not pretty, but that makeup artist is sure trying. I think she looks best with minimal makeup - like in that People magazine makeup-less shoot.

I really like the lipstick colour on her but she's got funny-shaped lips so the application often looks a bit weird up close. The outer corners are too full or something. I LOVE the eye make-up w/ that mauve-grey shade.

Schur called Jones "funny, talented and beautiful."She is perfect for this new show, which -- just to remind everyone -- is not a spinoff of 'The Office,' " he said. "It is a spinoff of 'MASH' called 'Seinfeld II.' "

O/T but does JK not smoke? Or has he ever spoken out against it? I always thought he was one at some point b/c of the whole being a playwright thing and also working in a bar (actually the ban came in 2003 but I'm not sure whether it crosses over for him). He might be cool w/ it.

I think Will has stopped. A friend has since told me about his appearance on Conan talking about quitting, and how it kinda led into his obsession w/ Call of Duty and an irrational hatred of the 12 year old kids who play it. The ep was earlier this year, i.e. after my sighting.

Jenna Fischer at one point has given advice to actors in her blog, and one thing she said about "making it" was to accept all the jobs, big or small, paid or unpaid.  It seems to me that Rashida Jones is in this school too.  Rashida's acting jobs linked in this thread vary a lot.  In the Prop 8 video, her part is basically "chorus," I think -- no solos, no spotlight on her.  It seems to me a very smart way to go about things in Hollywood.

This Paul Rudd indie man-flick (like chick flick but for men) will go down as one of the funniest films you will see next year. Really refreshing to get a nice contemporary melodrama with such vibrant prose and characterization. [snip] Of real special note to me in this film is stunning actress Rashida Jones who reminded me how great and talented she is. Her performance here while it could have easily just been all surface cute and artifice instead adds in depth and texture. I really hope she continues to get great roles like this one! Put this one on your calendar to see when it opens around March of 2009. This has all the bearings to be a huge cult hit and the romantic comedy hit for next year. -cinemaisdope (http://www.cinemaisdope.com/bnat-x-showcases-the-future-of-cinema/)

Thanks for the links. It looks funny and quite charming too, rather than flat-out crude. I was a bit worried about that b/c it's from the guy who did Along Came Polly (yuck!), but he also wrote Zoolander and Meet the Parents so that's promising.

From Hollywood Repoter (http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/hr/content_display/news/e3i728e28adf80ba3aac61113f1a83dc659), the movie's world premiere is as the opening film of the SXSW Festival. It's a family affair for the Jones' too - wonder if she'll go? There'll almost def. be an LA premiere as well though, which I'd expect her to be at.

New couple alert? How I Met Your Mother's Jason Segel and The Office's Rashida Jones, making each other laugh hysterically over dinner at L.A.'s Chateau Marmont. Afterward, Segel picked up the tab and led the way out for Jones, who was sporting studious, dark-rimmed glasses.

OMG! idk how to feel about this if they are, lol. Jason is awesome but w/ RJ? As boyfriend and girlfriend? Too weird. It could be totally platonic though - they're in ILYM together and she hangs out w/ guy friends all the time.

Their height difference could pose some problems : I'd actually prefer her w/ James Franco.

Recently someone on LJ (ONTD maybe?) randomly suggested her and Ryan Gosling should get together, which would be all kinds of awesome. I'm excited for the movie and the non-spinoff but also who she dates next. Tobey, Mark, Seth and JK are all cool guys - cute, funny, charming, successful. Hopefully that trend continues.

Well, okay really I've just heard it about Rachel Mcadams so it could just be something that was already there. Or it could be total Bull.

More info about the non-spinoff (http://community.post-gazette.com/blogs/tunedin/archive/2009/01/15/press-tour-journal-poehler-series-premise.aspx):

Quote
The new series, still untitled, will be filmed in the same mockmentary style as "The Office" but will be set in the world of local government. Cameras follow Leslie Knope (Poehler), described as a "mid-level bureaucrat in the Parks and Recreation Department of Pawnee, Indiana."

In the show, Leslie attempts to improve her town and advance her career by helping a local nurse (Rashida Jones, "The Office") turn a construction pit into a park. They're opposed by defensive bureaucrats, NIMBY neighbors and developers. She's helped and hindered by Tom Haverford (Aziz Ansari, "Human Giant," "Scrubs"), another government official.

In the process, Leslie hopes to inspire her bored college intern (Aubrey Plaza) and reach her goal of becoming the first female President of the United States.

Wonder how RJ's boyf fits in, and if he's a major character?

It sounds okay; there's def. a lot of potential in satirising local/small govt, politicians, developers, etc. It probably won't be in an office all the time either, which would distance it from TO too.
Apparently there's a press conference tomorrow.

From OK! Magazine (http://www.okmagazine.com/news/view/11398)
Quote
Emily & John Flaunt Their Love at Sundance
[snip]
While his relationship with Emily, 25, is still new, a pal of John, 29, tells OK! The Office Star's ex Rashida Jones is heartbroken. "She really, really liked him," the pal says.

If it is true the "pal of John" is an asshole for telling OK! about it. That's her business! And how/who does it help putting that out there? But on the plus side it says "really, really liked". Not "loved".

It'd also go against my theories about them - that he was more into her than she was him. I really like RJ so totally biased but she was way out of his league from the start.

re BIWHM:
This scathing review (http://www.cinematical.com/2009/01/21/sundance-review-brief-interviews-with-hideous-men/) confirms that RJ appears in the film
Quote
And while you'll certainly be treated to a big batch of likable, familiar faces (like Bobby Cannavale, Timothy Hutton, Rashida Jones, Will Arnett, Josh Charles and Mr. Krasinski among them), none of the performers are able to defeat the stiff, stagy, and episodic nature of the material.

Post by: colette on January 22, 2009, 05:56:20 AM
That OK! piece is ridiculous.

What 'pal' of JK is going to blab about his love life to a tabloid magazine? (He's clearly a private guy and his 'pals' hardly seem the type to do that.) Plus, it would be totally ooc for him to flaunt his relationship - he was at Sundance with EB, but they seemed to go to some pains not to be photo'd together. I'm sure they were spotted hanging out acting like a normal couple - but 'constant PDA's' hardly seems like his style. (What, did he suddenly morph into some dumbass Spencer Pratt upon arriving in Utah? ::))

I have no idea if RJ is 'heartbroken' or not about his new relationship...but this piece reads like purely manufactured, sensationalistic drivel. It's disrespectful to both RJ and JK.



ETA: the gross thing is now this will get picked up and repeated as 'fact' in umpteen blogs, other tabloids, etc....makes you understand celebs (like JK) that go to pains to keep their private lives private. ::)
Title: Re: Rashida Jones #2
Post by: sabrina on January 22, 2009, 06:58:42 AM
colette, ITA w/ you about it not making sense and being disrespectful. If it does catch on that will suck.
I don't want her getting press for her personal life, esp. the "heartbroken" angle, and just when her career is really taking off w/ the tv show and majorly anticipated movie. If good news like a new boyfriend breaks that's one thing but stories like this are the worst.

Reading it back the cynic in me (encouraged by my flatmate) does wonder if "pal" = "publicist" or "deliberate plant" since it sounds like a post-breakup trying to get the upper hand type of thing. Y'know, where you spread it round you're really happy and have moved on w/ someone else and your ex is totally heartbroken so therefore you're the 'winner'. Or maybe that's just us :D

ETA not that JK would do this - just the "friend says so-and-so" scenario sounds familiar and it's probably the type of thing OK! would come up w/.
Title: Re: Rashida Jones #2
Post by: colette on January 22, 2009, 07:11:38 AM
I really don't think so.

He's an extremely private guy - using a tabloid (or any media for that matter) as a vehicle to deal with his love life would be extremely and utterly out of character for JK - and I seriously doubt any publicist he'd employ would do that. Totally not his style (like I said, this ain't Spencer and Heidi.)

I think it's pure drivel, manufactured simply to fill space in a tabloid...and honestly, I don't think we should fuel that kind of nonsense by even discussing it any further. :)

It was just a hypothetical, and one assuming the quote is real. As in "if OK! didn't invent it then why would someone say that?"
It is a possibility and it doesn't have to involve JK at all. Maybe a friend of a friend or another random person talked to a reporter w/o his permission. Any accusation against JK was totally unintended!

Elsewhere the new redband trailer (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=87CGEATZYJU) for I Love You, Man is out (youtube, 2:49). It's a restricted one b/c of sexually explicit language so be warned.

I don't know.  For two people who claimed to just be "great friends," they haven't been spotted anywhere together since the SNL finale after party last May.  Until then, they seemed to be flying to NY a lot for the show/to hang out, etc.  Also spotted together by fans a lot either in LA or NY.

If they were just friends, John being in a new relationship shouldn't keep them from being friends (and I'm not saying it is).  I just think that they are acting more like exes who finally put an end to the on again/off again relationship they had for a few years.

Of course, regardless of what any of us think of their relationship, the reality is we don't know and are just speculating.  Pretty harmless stuff considering we don't know them and they don't care.

Or he went from filming a movie to working on TO, promoting his own movie premiering at a major film fesitval, and he's in a new relationship and that's taking up his great friend time, which wouldn't be so unusual. RJ has her own full plate as well, so not being able to make time for a couple of busy months doesn't sound so unusual. Especially since these accounts of them being spotted together was rather sporadic.

I wanted to remind people of the existence of the JK & RJ thread (http://mtt.just-once.net/mb/index.php?topic=412.0), a great place to discuss the relationship or lack thereof between John and Rashida.

I'm looking forward to seeing Rashida on the new non-spinoff with Amy Poehler.  I can imagine the two of them could have some chemistry.  Will they be the new Lucy and Ethel? ;)  Time will tell.  I'm glad to see Rashida get another chance at a show, since Unhitched didn't work out.  And according to imdb, I Love You, Man comes out on March 20.  I like this picture (http://www.imdb.com/media/rm3351153152/tt1155056) of Rashida from the movie.

Yeah, that occurred to me too but it doesn't seem to fit this article. It's all about JK and how great his lovelife and career are right now (BIWHM's reviews notwithstanding). The RJ reference is one line about her feeling crappy and pretty much getting left behind as he moves on. If someone on RJ's side was gonna do that I think it'd be in a piece about her and something more positive, like staying friends or being happy for him etc.

Her press stuff will probably start soon and it's inevitable q's about her lovelife will come up. It'll be interesting to see if she refers to him at all.

They were still hanging out a bit more recently, or at least in the same room w/o incident. Both attended the Tropic Thunder premiere (pics (http://www.popsugar.com/1861166), Lainey's account (http://www.laineygossip.com/John_Krasinski_and_Rashida_Jones_at_Tropic_Thunder_premiere.aspx?CatID=0&CelID=20312)) in mid-August and an Emmy pre-party in late September (pics (http://www.variety.com/index.asp?layout=photoGalleryAlbum&galleryid=1934)).

Believe me, I'm no expert on celebrity reporting, but it seems to me that a mag can report that someone is heart-broken and pining for a lost love without impunity -- because the star wouldn't want to call more attention to the item by suing, etc. They save that for really important deceitful reporting, such as drug/alcohol abuse, affairs, etc.  So, these magazines can print whatever they want about what a star is feeling -- and a lot of folks believe that rubbish. It's all made up.   bighugsicon

More pictures of Rashida from the Men's Health article she did a while back:

The photographer is Andrew McLeod.

And this random shoot:

(http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y130/shecklair10/salowen01.jpg)

(http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y130/shecklair10/salowen02.jpg)

Just random facts I found that you guys probably know but I had no idea about:

- She plays piano and a little guitar
- Jones' mother has called her a child prodigy in music — she played piano at age 5 and was a young composer.

- Rashida was a precocious child. Her father wrote in his autobiography that he would often find the five-year-old Rashida at bedtime under the covers reading five books at a time by flashlight. A talented singer and pianist, Rashida begin performing publicly as a youngster. She began taking piano lessons at the age of five, and would listen to her teacher play classical pieces, then would play those pieces herself from memory. She wrote a chapter in her dad's autobiography, "Q": "I have a photographic memory like my dad, but in some ways it's a disability. Because I have a strong ear and pick up all things musical quickly, I never learned to sight read well. My father has always taught me, though, that a strong ear is not enough; you've got to get a command of the theory. I'm still working on that."

- Around the same age Jones was already playing classical concerts and winning awards. Her mother told Entertainment Tonight, "She's also a fabulous singer and songwriter, so she has inherited it (from Quincy), there's no question about it. Her dad's teaching her how to orchestrate and arrange too."

google did say she'll be at the SXSW festival (http://www.sxsw.com/node/912)
Quote
SXSW takes great pleasure in announcing that writer/director John Hamburg (Along Came Polly) will be in attendance for a special panel with cast members Paul Rudd (The 40 Year Old Virgin), Jason Segel (Forgetting Sarah Marshall) and Rashida Jones (NBC's The Office). They will join him at SXSW Film Conference for a spirited look behind the scenes of I Love You, Man, and an insight into their particular brand of comedy.
So expect to be engaged, entertained, and maybe even a little enlightened! Check out the panel on Saturday, March 14.

...and she just did a photoshoot for anthem magazine (http://jordanashearasellsout.blogspot.com/2009/02/anthem-magazine.html). It sounds pretty cool - in the Neutra House in Silver Lake (!) and she'll be wearing couture (!!).

It's doubtful IMO. No offence to the the guy but he isn't hot enough to be. Or rather, he's not as hot as I'd want potential boyfriend to be. Mean, I know, but I have high hopes for her.
But honestly who knows - it's just a man and woman walking down the street after all.

At first glance he looked like a certain actor who pops up in things here and there. Not entirely sure which one - it's one of those "Hey, It's That Guy!" guys.

But I don't think she's her boyfriend either. Maybe he's a friend since she said she grew up with a group of boys in highschool. Like this guy:

I could def. believe she grew up w/ a group that way b/c she strikes me as a guy's girl. Not out of rivalry w/ other women, just happy hanging out w/ the boys. I guess it helps when your boy friends are the likes of Jason Segel, Dave Annable, Scott Speedman, Leonardo Dicaprio...

ETA: Her outfit in those candids is cool too. I pretty much always like her casual clothes and she has a great eye for accessories, be it shoes, bags, jewellery, glasses, sunnies, etc. This newish blog had a feature from People '08 I hadn't seen before w/ some favourite things (http://rashidajones.blogspot.com/search/label/Magazines).

They're now pairing her with Leo? (http://www.celebuzz.com/leonardo-dicaprio-makes-moves-rashida-s82991/)  If true, she could do worse.

That seems so exaggerated - dancing at a party - heaven forbid. ::)

He seems to be on-again with Bar Rafaeli at the moment since she's been going to the Revolutionary Road premieres with him. It's really sad that there can't be a report on a Hollywood event/party without a couples twist to it - they seem to want the headline just to catch attention no matter how much substance there may actually be to it.

And the photo they used of Rashida wasn't the most flattering one - the girl is gorgeous - use one that does her justice. I'm also now wondering if Jenna went to the after-party - would be cute to see those two together. :)

Hahah. I highly doubt they're together. They're just friends I'm sure since he dated her sister back then. She hung out with him during that GQ party: "I'm partially here to check out all the hot men," said a Stella McCartney-clad Jones, who later palled around with friend DiCaprio inside the event.

Yeah, it would be cool to see Jenna and Rashida hanging together. I loved that picture of them in the InStyle article about Rainn's foundation thing.

Not only did Leo date her sister, but I'm pretty sure Tobey and Rashida were engaged at one point? Am I right on that? In which case...yeah, pretty sure Leo subscribes to the bros before hos code. Not saying she's a ho. But you know...

Just...I don't think Leo Dicaprio is exactly hurting for beautiful women to the point where he's going to start scamming on his bff's exes. So yeah, probably just dancing. That being said, how fun would it be just to be able to randomly cut a rug with Leonardo Dicaprio?

Her life is not like my life.

I wish her and Jenna had had more scenes on the show. I watched A Benihana Xmas over Xmas and they were great together. Plus there was that Greg quote about how RJ's audition scenes w/ Jenna were what sealed the deal in her casting.

Yeah, I think they were although some sites say they just dated. I'm not sure she's ever said anything either way. Leo's definitely BFF w/ him though. Maybe he's always had a crush on her ;)

IA they're just friends. She doesn't seem like his type either, or he hers. Even though it's probably just tabloid rubbish I still thought "please, please be true!" Leo is awesome!

Count me in for coincidence. I think these 2 stories are a by-product of her having even more famous friends. People photograph/pay attn to Natalie and Leo wherever they go.

It's def. possible. But Perez likes them both and by my reckoning is famous for not kowtowing to that PR-planted bullshit. And as with the JK story, the celebuzz (http://www.celebuzz.com/leonardo-dicaprio-makes-moves-rashida-s82991/) one is all about the guy - where Leo was that night, what he was doing, who his friends and girlfriend are.
If RJ is paying a publicist to leak stories about the awesomeness of JK and Leo's lives, it's money well spent.

Oh, I know the paps follow Leo and Natalie and I'm sure they're all friends. Birds of a feather. . .rich and famous hang with the rich and famous.

I just think it's funny that after the story of Rashida's heartbreak came out, we are suddenly seeing pictures and stories to the contrary. Like someone is trying to prove that isn't the case at all. Isn't that what PR people do (among other things)?

I don't believe that there are many coincidences in Hollywood.

IA that's what PR people do and it is fortuitous timing :)
I just don't buy the weekend being arranged - and the minimal press coverage of it - as a response to the OK! story. That seems pretty calculating and OOC to me (YMMV of course).
Besides that RJ often goes out w/ famous friends and family >>> pics and blogs/press. E.g. she was hanging out w/ Leo at GQ and "laughing hysterically" w/ Jason Segel before the heartbroken thing came out.


On the topic of guy friends I do hope JK and RJ can salvage some sort of friendship (if they haven't already). I always thought it was really nice they had done that after dating the first time round. They also have lots of mutual friends and w/ her back in the NBC family they'll probably be running into e/o a fair bit. That would suck if they weren't speaking at all. So awkward!

Sexy!

Quote
I Love You, Man's Rashida Jones explains what it takes to turn her on

I've never been a slow burner," says actress Rashida Jones. In addition to acting on TV and in films—she recently starred in I Love You, Man with Paul Rudd—the 33-year-old beauty has been in music videos and studied Hinduism. When she dabbles, she dabbles with heart, and her enthusiasm extends to her romantic life. "I'm not a believer in dating around. Anytime I've ever dated someone, I just knew the first day and ended up dating him for years." Besides just knowing, there are a few things on her checklist: kindness, humor, openness to new experiences, and meeting her family (that would include her dad, the incomparable Quincy Jones, and mom, the beautiful Peggy Lipton). Here are six more things she's looking for in The One.

Respects (and Expects) the Crazy
"Women have emotional outbursts. We just do. It's hormonal. And the way a guy handles it is a true test of what kind of man he is. The quicker you understand it, the better off you're going to be in a relationship."

Is Enthusiastically Curious
"I like someone who gets up every day and is incredibly excited about whatever he's going to learn, whether it's politics, art, his own spirituality, or just meeting someone new. You have to be interested in the rest of the world. Everything is so much bigger than you are."

Is Inherently Generous
"You can't have hang-ups about money, regardless of how much you have. You can tell a lot about a man by how he treats the people around him, whether it's a friend or a waiter or a ticket taker at a parking lot. If you're a generous person, you're generous all the time."

Knows How to Merge
"I've been in the position where you lose yourself in a relationship and it's just the two of you, but I don't think that's a sacrifice you have to make. It's nice when you can merge with each other's friends. It has to be a merger, not a takeover."

Knows How to Use His Tongue
"There is nothing less sexy than someone who sees kissing as a stepping stone to the other stuff. Kissing can be magical and hot on its own. I'm talking about a good, long, slow kiss that makes your knees buckle."

Deal Breaker: Hogs the Mirror
"I'm worried about a guy who hogs the mirror more than I do, or goes to a tanning salon, or works on his hair for too long. It's a metrosexual affliction, a modern dilemma. There's always the possibility that he's not dealing with his true feelings about being gay, but mainly it's just icky, just not sexy."

Right now I'm kind of obsessing over Rashida Jones' Los Angeles home which is featured in this month's Glamour.

I love it!

Yeah, IA. She doesn't really have a narrow waist yet she looks good when she emphasises that area w/ a belt or tailored waistband. In a shapeless dress hanging straight down or, even worse, a voluminous one adding bulk, not so much. At least they're comfy though.

Yeah, I really like it. Love that she wore a short, shiny party dress; another site says it's 3.1 Phillip Lim. Her overall look is kind of 60s-inspired w/ the hair and make-up and everything.

From wireimage (http://www.wireimage.com/SearchResults.aspx?navtyp=SRH&sfld=C&logsrch=1&s=Rashida%20Jones), she went to the Elton John and Vanity Fair parties. Nice!

BTW, I might be in the minority here, but I hated Rashida's look last night.

The dress looked loped-sided and something that I could get at H&M for $29.99. And the shoes definitely didn't go with the outfit.

Ooh yeah, the bigger pics really show that. From her right, like in Kim's 1st post, the dress looked fantastic (IMO) but from front on and the other side, like w/ Eric, it's too big. Not so great after all :-\ But she's so tiny and it might be a runway sample, fit for broader shoulders. It's still a cute look overall for mine.

IA about the heavy eyes too, esp. at the EJ party, although they look better and more cat-like at VF IMO

HER SHTICK: The Harvard-educated Hollywood habitué -she's the daughter of music legend Quincy Jones and '70s Mod Squad hottie Peggy Lipton- is the resident smart chick, always armed with a snappy comeback.
AS SEEN IN: Unhitched, The Office, Boston Public
CLING-FREE: In I Love You, Man, Jones, 32, plays a self-possessed guy's girl who encourages her fiancé to have his own life and friends. "I like to fancy myself as being that unconditional," says Jones, who's been romantically linked to low-key It boys DJ Mark Ronson and actor John Krasinski. "I'm pretty independent, and when I'm in a relationship, I support my partner's independence."
IN THE COMPANY OF MEN: "I spend most of my time with my guy friends. If you don't have that looming sexual tension, men tend to be incredibly honest, candid, and communicative. Girls can be complicated. Guys just see it -and tell it- like it is."
CHASING AMY: Next up, Jones joins Amy Poehler's much-hyped new (as yet untitled) NBC series. "I'm a superfan of hers. I used to watch her perform at Upright Cititzens Brigade. It's such a boon that I work with her."
MOD SQUAD REDUX? "If I remade it, in my dream version, I'd costar with Justin Timberlake and Q-Tip in Mod Squad: The Musical."
MONKEY BUSINESS: Growing up among the famous left a mark -literally. "Bubbles," she laughs, about a scar on her hand courtesy of Michael Jackson's pet chimp. "Forever to be remembered."

The pics w/ Paul are great. They're so cute together and it's nice Charlotte Ronson was there too. RJ looks really pretty, as always, but I don't like the dress very much. It might've looked good in the shop/on the model but it doesn't really on her. I thought the same thing about the premiere too - at least it wasn't the LA one. :D

From a Paul and Jason interview (http://www.northbynorthwestern.com/2009/03/27575/paul-rudd-and-jason-segel-talk-bromance-pizza-and-masturbation/),
Quote
So the movie was about you guys being romantic. How did Rashida Jones fit in with the dynamics of the film?
PR: I've known Rashida for a long time. And it seemed very natural because we - Jason how long have you know Rashida, do you know her very well?
JS: I've known her since I was 18 so, 11 years.
PR: Yeah right, so it was really actually quite easy. Rashida is very much kind of one of the guys. You know, she kind of is - hilarious and cool and easy to hang out with and um...
JS: She is like one of the most stunningly beautiful women you'll ever see in your life.
PR: That part would make it a little uncomfortable because we would just [be in awe] even though we know her and have been friends with her. You just say, wait a minute, she is just stunning. And then Jason and I would look at each other to kind of shock ourselves back and where am I gonna go with this, I wonder... Apparently, nowhere.
I can't believe Freaks & Geeks aired nine years ago. That's ages.

Also, that RJ blog I like has done 2 cool picposts on her NY place in Domino (http://rashidajones.blogspot.com/2009/03/magazines-domino.html) and favourite stuff in Vanity Fair (http://rashidajones.blogspot.com/2009/03/magazines-vanity-fair-my-stuff.html). They're not new but those homeware/fashion/beauty products type articles are fun and the little studio is to die for.

In past interviews she's talked about how quickly her bangs become greasy looking. Definitely not a problem here. Her bangs look longer than usual to me. Don't they usually end just above or at her eyebrows?

In the second photo she could pass for Justine Bateman.

I like Karen well enough but she is done, surely. Wonder why she didn't rule it out entirely? I'd like her to do more films though. And she likes Bon Iver - he's awesome!

At the premiere of 'I Love You, Man' in L.A, many other actors/actresses were there like Ben Stiller, Elizabeth Banks, Jason Bateman, Jack Black, Jon Hamm, etc.
Got to say, I wish she wore the dress that she wore at the SXSW to the premiere instead....not so fond of this dress.

RJ looks beautiful and the dress is... okay. It's a flattering silhouette, unlike that pink and black thing from last week. I like her fringe like that and her mum's short hair. She's so beautiful as well! There are some nice pics of her, then and now, in this style.com beauty icon (http://www.style.com/beauty/icon/060805ICON/) slideshow.

The dress would have been nice if you couldn't see ALL her legs and thereby her underwear through the holes. :o Normally when I've bought summery dresses like that they have a slip underneath to about mid-thigh/more so it's not completely see through. Maybe it's designer and fashion forward but once you notice that it kind of makes the outfit look tacky in my opinion.

That said she looks very pretty - love the bangs and hair colour - the loose waves suit her better than the poker straight Fillipelli look. Hope the film does well for her. :)

I think that particular photo gives the impression that it's made of an eyelet fabric. This pic doesn't show the dress as being see-through. It's an optical illusion!  :D

Capone: I read some really good things out of Sundance about BRIEF INTERVIEWS WITH HIDEOUS MEN [directed by Jones' "Office" co-star John Krasinski]. I don't know how big your role is.

RJ: I'm not really in it. I got cut out of three movies last year--ROLE MODELS, BRIEF INTERVIEWS, and I was in that Renee Zellweger movie NEW IN TOWN.

I saw I Love You Man last night too.  Paul Rudd is hilarious.  I'm still not impressed by Rashida's acting.  This was definitely Paul's movie.  I'm not a fan of Jason Segal, especially after reading an interview of him in the latest Rolling Stone.  I did like the movie more than I thought I would.

Quote
It Girl: Rashida Jones
[snipped] We can’t help noticing that Jones puts together outfits well; she loves Isabel Marant, A.P.C., Prada, Marni, and Phillip Lim for the wearability factor. “I work with my friend Samira Nasr—she’s an incredible stylist—to come up with fresh but elegant looks that don’t look like what everyone else is wearing,” Jones said. Last week at the L.A. premiere of I Love You, Man, she sported an Alaïa dress, Fred Leighton jewelry, a Prada bag, and Manolo shoes.
“In a perfect world, I would dress like a Japanese girl who lives in Paris—my style’s usually some variation on preppy classics like oxford shirts, cardigans, jeans, ballet flats, in basic colors with some hints of girly but architectural pieces.”
So specific! Usually celebs just go "clean and classic" or "Old Hollywood glamour" or whatever.

I wish they would have included some casual outfits. I never noticed how much she sticks to neutral colors. I'm catching up on some of the recent Rashida coverage and the pic from the new movie of her in the yellow top is amazing.

I agree with the part in the article about Rashida putting outfits together well. She layers and accessorizes so effortlessly. I'm jealous.

From Variety (http://www.variety.com/article/VR1118001653.html?categoryid=13&cs=1), RJ has written and will star in a new movie

Quote
Fox Atomic nabs 'Celeste and Jesse'
Rashida Jones to star in her own comedy spec
By TATIANA SIEGEL

Fox Atomic has snapped up Rashida Jones and Will McCormack's spec, "Celeste and Jesse Forever," and has attached the "I Love You, Man" actress to star.

Suzanne and Jennifer Todd ("Across the Universe") are producing the comedy via their Team Todd shingle.

Story revolves around a young divorcing couple who try to maintain their longstanding friendship while pursuing other relationships.

Jones, who is best known for her stint on "The Office" before segueing to bigscreen fare like "I Love You, Man," began writing the script with McCormack in August. Project marks the first script sale for Jones and her fellow thesp McCormack, whose credits include ABC's "Brothers and Sisters" and FX's "Dirt." Team Todd has a number of films in various stages of development and production, including Tim Burton's "Alice" at Disney.

Jones will next be seen on NBC's "Parks and Recreation," which premieres April 9.

Wow, that's pretty great. First to write a script and then sell it to a studio vs. doing the indie thing. The Todd sisters also did the Austin Powers movies and Memento, among others, so they've got a good record. Wonder who her co-star will be?

When I first read your post, sabrina, I was thinking of Eric McCormack (and, clearly, his character of Will) because I was like, "Oh, she and Eric McCormack are writing buddies?"  And then I thought of that pic of the two of them at the Vanity Fair Oscar party.

Clearly I needed caffeine.

Post by: kimismyname on March 26, 2009, 02:20:33 PM
Haha. I was confused with who it was too. I was like....that Vanity Fair Party photo. And then I googled him. Will doesn't look like Eric a lot. Hopefully it's a good script!
Who would you want to play Jesse? (I'm guessing that's the guy character's name)
Hmm....Ryan Gosling? Hugh Dancy? Ed Helms!? (hah.) I wouldn't mind Seth Meyers...but I don't know what he's like in films.

Question:

I just read a little blurb about Gwyneth Paltrow, yes the GOOPster herself, coming out with a line of t-shirts (just what the world needs - another celeb clothing line. But, this one's proceeds are for charity, so there's that.)

Anyway, that reminded me - does anyone know whatever became of RJ's t-shirt/clothing line? When she launched it last year (?) there was a little press, but I haven't heard a word since - nor have I seen it anywhere. SO, I'm wondering, does it still exist or did that go under?

(And seriously - not trying to reopen the tiresome debate about whether it was too pricey or ordinary or special or blobbity blah...just curious if any of you serious RJ fans know what became of it.)

Post by: sabrina on March 26, 2009, 11:02:59 PM
Heh, me three in thinking of Eric and that dancing pic at first. Then I thought, ohh, it's his brother but turns out Will's celebrity sibling is Mary McCormack, some actress.

kim, I like your choices, except for Ed Helms :D. I started thinking of her friends too, like Leo Dicaprio (he wouldn't even do it), Adam Brody (too young), Scott Speedman (maybe...)

From that brief description this could be a good, cute movie. It isn't a wacky concept and the ending isn't obvious, IMO. But... I'm not sure RJ can be a leading lady or carry an entire film. Esp. a comedy! She's just not that funny onscreen. The romance stuff might be alright - I haven't seen ILYM yet so maybe that will change my mind a little bit. Right now, though, getting the right leading man and director is crucial for me.

colette, they have a no-frills website (http://www.shoplaloo.com/) w/ this graphic on it. It's available in NY and LA, and apparently online too.

I've checked into the Steven Alan website periodically and haven't been able to find Laloo.  I did see it there around the time that old article about it was out, but I don't think it's been there since.  I wonder if they ever developed any new pieces.

Ronson designed it. It is from her latest RTW line. It's nice that RJ supports her friend, for better or for worse. I'm almost positive all three dresses in the last pic are Ronson's designs.

Nice interview.  Agreed about physical comedy.

Anyone seen this short from 2001, starring Rashida and Adam Brody... very cool.  Rashida's character Lucy throws an awesome, albeit brief tantrum (it starts building at about 7:50)

Also, she tangos  in the rain in her underwear.

I thought Rashida was very good last night in Parks and Rec. I totally believed her as a nurse, and the scene where the guy was hitting on her in a public Q&A was really well done. More evidence that she is a good actress, IMO. I just don't think this show has any future, but definitely Rashida does.

That would be great (I like that sketch too) but hopefully she doesn't give up on dramatic roles. I think she's good at them, e.g. Ny-lon, and she could get some good parts now her stock has risen. Drama seems to suit her more than comedy and she plays the straight woman anyway.

Good interview at the AV Club. She comes across as really thoughtful, intelligent and thankful. The comments are overwhelmingly positive too. I like how she's their dream girl and it's for personality, brains and accomplishments too, not just looks. Who says guys are shallow?

I read some of the commentary, too and was somewhat surprised at the response. I'm usually surprised at the comments about Rashida Jones on other non-Office exclusive sites. There is a mix, but they are usually, as you wrote, overwhelmingly positive. AVClub commenters are mostly male, so I think that is a big part of it in this case.

More pictures of Rashida can be found here (http://www.mtv.com/photos/?fid=1609024&view=thumb). She is with Andy Samberg, shooting promos for the MTV Movie Awards.

Yeah, really pretty. Great dress! I love the colour and cut. It's quite short and sexy too - it looks like the back also falls open down a centre split.

It's nice when guests get into the spirit of things and dance. I thought the Tupac connection would come up though, the way it often does. I wonder if she gets sick of being asked about that, her parents, famous people who visited her house and Paris/Nicole/The Kardiashans. I probably would, but at least she's always gracious about it and giving mad props to her supportive family. That little bit about Quincy talking to the movie screen was cute.

Yeah, she had a good rapport w/ Jimmy. You could tell they are friends. O/T but I didn't know Mike Schur produced/wrote for Weekend Update (presumably when Jimmy was doing it). He also went to Harvard w/ RJ and had Seth Meyers as his best man, so I guess he's been part of their group for a while. imdb even says he was an associate producer for BIWHM. It's pretty crazy how inter-connected they all are now.

That RJ Web gallery has lots of new pics for me, esp. the shoots. I like #09 (http://www.rashidajonesweb.com/pictures/thumbnails.php?album=15), #24 (http://www.rashidajonesweb.com/pictures/thumbnails.php?album=30) and #27 (http://www.rashidajonesweb.com/pictures/thumbnails.php?album=171), and
w/ #26 (http://www.rashidajonesweb.com/pictures/thumbnails.php?album=170) it looks like RJ in real life vs. the photoshopped magazine version.

Wow, she looks gorgeous. I like the jewellery too.

She's being romantically linked to Jon Favreau, Obama's chief speechwriter. They were together both Friday (http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/politics/blogs/yeas-and-nays/Parties-before-the-party-44639782.html) and Saturday night (http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/politics/blogs/yeas-and-nays/Seen-and-heard-at-the-Corro-Dinner-44674237.html).
Quote
Favreau's flame: Speaking of Jon Favreau, we may be seeing our next "PoliWood" power couple in Favreau and Rashida Jones, as we spotted them being more than just friends.

The speechwriter and the actress arrived together Saturday night, marking the second time this weekend the twosome showed up to an event together. That’s not enough to claim them as a couple, but after they walked the red carpet (separately) Favreau placed his hand on her backside and led her through the crowd.

Seeing that she didn’t slap him, we think they got something going on. Stay tuned.
Quote
Further proof that Hollywood and Obama aides are a natural fit was Jon Favreau and Rashida Jones' night-long interaction.  Leaving us question whether they are just good friends or a match made in PoliWood heaven, the Obama speechwriter and the actress arrived together (just as Kevin Bacon was leaving with his daughter) and spent the entire night cozied up a couch. 

They held rank as they were joined on and off during the night by actors John Hamm, Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Westfeldt.
They also sat together at the actual Dinner.

HOT NEW COUPLE ALERT: Rashida Jones Spotted With Hot Obama Speechwriter
By   Michelle Collins

To quote BWE.tv’s favorite movie Coming to America: “Why does she always get the good ones?”

A tipster has just informed us of a hot new celebrity power couple, seen getting close this weekend in Washington D.C.: Parks and Recreations actress Rashida Jones was spotted drinking Friday night with D.C.’s hottest bachelor of the moment, Jon Favreau. No, not the beefy actor seen in your Favreau-te movie of all-time, Rudy, but rather the studly 27-year-old Director of Speechwriting for President Barack Obama. Yes, that one. For girls who like guys that look good on paper, his Wiki page is basically pornography. Also? He’s hot.

Here’s how it went down: Rashida and Jon were hanging out in an exclusive bar in the Georgetown area (yes, D.C. does have “exclusive places”, unless you’re a WASP, as then the world is your nest.) Our tipster reports that the two were attached at the hip all evening, until they starting making out with each other at the bar. Eventually, they left with one another. We can only assume they did the inevitable… shake hands (hands = genitals.)

The next night, Rashida was spotted looking radiant* (*bc she probs had ess) at the White House Correspondents dinner, while her latest boy toy was likely busy backstage writing one liners for the POTUS. So does this mean Favreau, easily the hottest commodity the East Coast has to offer, has broken up with rumored girlfriend and Maxim model Ali Campoverdi? Well, if that is the case, then allow us to digitally shake his hand (again, genital) and congratulate him on the Upgrade. The jury is still out on whether or not he’s a better catch than J. Krasinski, though. (He probably is.)

(Please also note, the above picture is Photoshopped, but aw, they make a cute couple.)
I love how the comments just go "NO!!! JKras is better!!!" laughingicon Well, most of them anyway.

Quote
^The video of him and his Boss http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JuJUnLF3-7Q

He's hot and smart and works in the frickin' West Wing of The White House. If it was my friend I'd be saying 'Get it girl, he is a really good catch!!
He does look hot in that clip. Hopefully they are a couple b/c he sounds pretty awesome.

From here (http://rashidajones.blogspot.com/2009/05/news-rumors-rashidas-lovelife.html), RJ is in the tabloids too. This is the National Enquirer's piece:
Quote
Gorgeous actress Rashida Jones has gone from an “Office” romance to a White House love affair - with President Obama’s dashing young speechwriter!

And her new man, Jon Favreau, has made her forget all about former boyfriend and co-star John Krasinski, who quickly moved on to a relationship with “The Devil Wears Prada” star Emily Blunt after his and Rashida’s breakup, say pals.

“For Rashida, her romance with Jon couldn’t have come at a better time,” a longtime friend told the Enquirer.

“She was miserable after breaking up with John. And it really hurt for her to see him dive into a love affair with Emily soon afterward.”

The 33-year-old actress - now on the new NBC comedy “Parks and Recreation” - and Favreau, 27, had their official Beltway “coming out” as a couple at the recent White House Correspondents Dinner in D.C.

The pair was later scene cuddling in the wee hours of the morning at an intimate after-party, and they’ve also been spotted getting cozy on a couch at a trendy Georgetown-area bar.

“Rashida is just crazy about Jon, said the source. “She not only finds him handsome, but smart and witty.”

Rashida, the daughter of legendary music producer Quincy Jones, first met Jon through mutual friends at a political fundraising function, but he was dating someone else at the time, says the friend.

“So when a pal clued her in that he’d recently broken up with his girlfriend, Rashida made her move.”

Now the couple is trying to make a long-distance relationship work - he works in Washington, D.C. and she’s based in Hollywood.

But “Rashida is already making plans to spend time with him on the East Coast this summer,” added the friend.

[From The National Enquirer, print edition, June 1 2009]
It all sounds plausible enough to me, although I wouldn't have thought the WHCAD was an "official" coming out. They didn't pose for pictures together or issue a press release or anything. It was more like random people saw them kissing and cuddling and told the internet.

They have pics too; he brought his mum (aw!) when he made TIME's 100 Most Influential People list.

/film (http://www.slashfilm.com/2009/05/27/jake-kasdan-to-direct-bad-teacher/) thinks RJ is front-runner to star in a new comedy: Bad Teacher, written by Gene & Lee and dir. by Jake Kasdan (Walk Hard).
Quote
The Bad Teacher screenplay revolves around Elizabeth Halsey, a teacher with a cussin’ problem (er… no comment) who ends up in a bitter rivalry with her squeaky-clean colleague Amy Squirrel. Elizabeth is the sort of girl who wakes up at 3.40 in the afternoon, looks for breakfast in the fridge but finds only packets of ketchup, mustard and soy sauce so turns to her bong instead. I’m expecting that Rashida Jones will be front of the line for the role and that she’ll make hay with the truly hilarious bad behavior laid out on the page.

I’m gonna go out on a limb and suggest that Scarlett Johansson would be a sought after actress for the Amy Squirrel role. Even if she doesn’t get the part you’ll see why I suggested her here when they announce who has.
That last bit suggests he's 'in the know' about casting so hopefully it works out.

From Jezebel (http://jezebel.com/5276267/adam-lambert-steps-out-with-boyfriend-d+list-siblings-replace-spencer-and-heidi-in-jungle) (ugh) & Politico (http://www.politico.com/blogs/anneschroeder/0609/Is_Jon_Favreau_dating_Rashida_Jones_Or_are_they_just_good_friends.html), she spent the week/end in Washington w/ Favreau. They went to Richard Wolffe's book launch on Monday and then Tuesday was JF's 28th (!) birthday. From the comments, a clip from his 'Inside the WH' interview (0:45) (http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/30892505/#31068742).

When I read that a few months ago when the script was on the black list, I was hoping Jenna would be considered, but that could be a great role for Rashida as well. Hope it works out.

From People's latest news (http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20285026,00.html),
Quote
Dating in the D.C.
After splitting from The Office nice guy John Krasinski, Parks & Recreation star Rashida Jones, 33, has been hanging with President Obama's 28-year-old speechwriter Jon Favreau. "It's not serious," a source reveals, but they are an item. [snipped]
I tend to believe People more than any other celeb news outlet or magazine. And I'm glad she has someone to hang out and have fun/hot sex with, esp. when the someone is so impressive. It seems more realistic than RJ "finds love" (http://www.imdb.com/news/ni0794343/) after dating, like, ^y weeks while living in diff. cities.

Heh, they're mirroring each other in that pic. It's the night they were seen making out too. I wonder if it was at that party or some other Georgetown bar afterwards.

And aw, you don't like Favs? Bradley's okay, but I get a little 'douche in real life' vibe off him. Plus, w/ that marriage thing, I've seen blind item guesses suggesting he a, cheated, or b, hit her. I don't know anything about him, at all, to have an opinion either way though. Just remember reading them.

ETA: The movie she wrote/will star in has a distributor (?), Overture Films (http://www.screendaily.com/news/distribution/us-americas/overture-swoons-for-rashida-jones-forever/5002659.article?referrer=RSS).

She was interviewed on the local NY news, along with several other celebrities who were all at some event that I can't remember. At the time, she didn't mention anything about her personal relationship or anything like that, just that it was sad, he's a musical legend, etc. It was one of those quick, on the street, soundbyte interviews, so basically everyone was giving the usual.

What a creepy question to ask. And did she really answered it like that or is the blogger twisting her words? I know very little about her, but she seems like someone who has class. The way they present the answer is ... classless. I would take this with a huge grain of salt.

When we approached the star during the opening of “Twelfth Night” in Central Park, the actress confided she prefers the smooches of former “I Love You, Man” co-star Paul Rudd to ex-boyfriend John Krasinski. “I’d definitely have to say Paul!” she enthused. “John’s great, but I’d still say Paul.” We wonder if John’s new girlfriend, Emily Blunt, would make the same choice?

Blech. To each their own, but I wonder if "no comment" wouldn't have been the better answer. Creepy questions don't deserve another response, even as a joke.

Post by: colette on June 29, 2009, 03:17:04 PM
It just sounds to me like she's giving the less awkward answer of the two choices, now that both she and JK have moved on...deflecting a dumb/invasive question as best she could.

Saying someone you only 'screen kissed' - who everyone knows you've never had any real life romantic connection to, and was/is clearly just a friend - is less an invasion of your personal life, than saying your actual ex. That would, I'd imagine, be much more uncomfortable an answer for all involved, given how private they both are (not to mention their respective new s.o.'s.)

Really stupid question.  ::) (And yeah, 'no comment' would probably have been a better choice.)
Title: Re: Rashida Jones #2
Post by: PeanutGallery on June 29, 2009, 03:27:07 PM
Yeah, that's what I meant. There was no way she could have gracefully answered that question without putting herself and others in an awkward position and opening up just the kind of speculation that the answer did open up. There's just no good answer here, no matter how you slice it. They asked her to pick and picking in this situation, no matter who you name, is awkward and in kind of a bad taste. "No comment" is the only answer, and even that is open to all sorts of interpretation. She was probably ambushed and had to say something quickly. Creepy questions like that come out of the left field, there's no way to anticipate them. Some, ahem, "journalists" do that for the sound-bite they then can slice up and server however they want.

I wasn't throwing stones...in fact, quite the opposite.

I meant that she seemed to be trying to deflect a dumb and rude question, without invading either her or JK's privacy - simply going for the more neutral answer...like Peanut Gallery said, no comment might have been better, but she was probably caught off guard.

Okay, good. :)

Onto a much more interesting RJ-related topic: anyone heard anything about this film she co-wrote and recently sold? Is it being cast? Actually, I'm not even sure if she's planning on appearing in it herself?

Post by: kimismyname on June 29, 2009, 04:41:08 PM
Apparently they say that she was star in it but who knows. It would be nice to see her play a lead role. Who would you guys cast to be her ex?

Post by: girl7 on June 29, 2009, 04:58:11 PM
I read an interview with Rashida a while back (in The Improper Bostonian, maybe?  Does that sound right?) wherein the guy asked her if JK was a good kisser (this was in season 3), to which she replied something along the lines of, "Ha ha, you're trying to be clever - we've never kissed on the show."  And she didn't answer from there. 

But ITA: What a rude, inane question.  I wonder if it's hard for her not to just snap at people when they cross lines like that. 

colette: I hadn't heard about her other project. ...Is it mean that I'm glad she's got something going on other than Parks & Recreation?  ::)
Title: Re: Rashida Jones #2
Post by: kimismyname on June 29, 2009, 07:53:36 PM
Yup it was the Improper Bostonian:

JS: So is John Krasinski a good kisser?
RJ: [Laughs.] You can’t ask me that because we’ve never kissed on the show, so I don’t know where that’s coming from. Is that a trick question?

Title: Re: Rashida Jones #2
Post by: Smiley Pants on June 29, 2009, 08:04:39 PM
I think it was a stupid question, but I am surprised she answered it and I'm surprised CDAN said that didn't qualify as throwing John under the bus.  A real-life boyfriend loses out to a pretend one?  Ouch.  I don't blame her for being flustered but I wouldn't qualify that as "classy."
Title: Re: Rashida Jones #2
Post by: Papertrail on June 29, 2009, 08:13:35 PM
 I agree. Enty is rumored to be a friend of Rashida's, so he's partial to her. A quick "no comment" with a disgusted look towards the reporter would have sufficed. Tacky question.
Title: Re: Rashida Jones #2
Post by: lisahoo on June 29, 2009, 08:20:16 PM
Or the subtle way to avoid it is to just laugh and pretend it wasn't real question she was really expected to answer.
Title: Re: Rashida Jones #2
Post by: MojoPin on June 29, 2009, 08:26:39 PM
I wouldn't have answered it if I were her but, and don't throw garbage at me, but if she had said John was a better kisser than Paul Rudd and not the other way around, everyone would be saying the same thing they've been saying, right?

RJ seems pretty smart and media savvy. I'd be interested to know what her tone had been as she answered.

Sure, although I think it's more insulting to John to lose to a fake boyfriend than it would be for Paul to lose to a real one.  I love Paul Rudd though, so I would be offended on his behalf as well.  laughingicon

Good point.

Post by: sabrina on June 30, 2009, 08:00:30 AM
I didn't even realise there could be two meanings. I just thought she meant technique-wise and fair enough too, some guys are better than others. It read like she said it in good humour b/c she's so fond of Paul, and at least JK's were still "great".

If it was comparing fake co-star kisses to real boyfriend ones from him then that's pretty harsh. Real kisses are out of love and affection and attraction, and one would hope they'd have more meaning. I guess she'd have her own reasons for saying they don't, though.

If I had to choose then right now I'd pick Paul over John, Jon over Paul and Jim over Jon. Halpert's still my favourite.

Yeah, me too. IIRC they were playing video games or something and he kept throwing shoes and videotapes at her. She smacked him and then he just lunged at her. Steve was like "You provoked him! You made a celebrity pet attack!"

A friend sent me this youtube video today. It's a BBC special on Quincy that shows a v. young RJ and Kidada singing on a Donna Summer album. Just drag the thing and start it at 7:00 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j3xCb7eLeNA).

I was just gonna post that Lainey (http://www.laineygossip.com/Rashida_Jones_dating_Jon_Favreau_Obamas_chief_speechwriter_.aspx?CatID=0&CelID=0) thing.
Quote
[snipped]We felt even worse about ourselves after reading this article on Jon Favreau, President Obama’s chief speechwriter, then just 26 years old and featured in the New York Times. He met Obama when he was 23, gave him a tip backstage when Obama was rehearsing at the 2004 convention (!!!) and then went on to work for him.

F-ck!

Jon Favreau is now reportedly dating Rashida Jones. She was involved with John Krasinski – a cutie in his own right, when he’s not being wanky with journalists – and has now bagged another super smart overachiever.

Rashida has great taste, non?
What's that about? I knew Lainey went off him a little bit but I thought it was for cutting in line at an airport (or wherever).

Thanks for the pics! She looks great, esp. at the premiere. So sophisticated.
I think that Monogamy movie w/ Chris Messina is a proper little indie that'll play at festivals and stuff. Apparently she plays guitar/sings in it too. There was a thing online about an extra watching those scenes at a theatre in Brooklyn.

ikr? They say 'creg' instead of 'cray-g'. I always notice that, like w/ craigslist and the craigslist killer.

From here (http://blog.newsok.com/nerdage/2009/07/27/rashida-jones-comes-to-oni-for-new-project/), RJ has been working on a comic book.

SAN DIEGO — Oni Press announced a new miniseries to be co-written by Rashida Jones (The Office, Parks and Recreation).  Frenemy of the State, co-written by Nunzio DeFilippis and Christina Weir, will follow an heiress who is working for the CIA.  Jones co-created the series and will co-write with  Nunzio DeFilippis (Past Lies), and Christina Weir (Past Lies).
This is so cool, I love that she's doing it! Seriously, how many people have their own comic book series? Oni Press also do Scott Pilgrim and Stephen Colbert's Tek Jansen, so hopefully hers turns out well.

I don't see any writing in her imdb, so maybe this is her first writing project?  (Or maybe it just wouldn't be on imdb if it's not on a screen somewhere.)

Rashida was on a rerun of Martha Stewart today. They made a rhubarb custard pie-ish thing. Rashida obviously does not know how to bake which I found kind of charming.

But they showed a clip from the first time Rashida was on Martha's show where they made a mold of her hand (which is, by the way, a really strange and random craft). It was hilarious. Here's (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CrBRN3WqC5k) the whole clip. It's the reveal of the mold that's funny. Oh, Rashida. I kind of like you.

Now I don't really know Martha, was she just kidding about the "do you have someone to buy a processor for you.?" or is she sort of like that in general?

Martha does, contrary to popular belief, have a sense of humor, but she's really dry so it's hard to tell. My feeling was that it was a joke but . . . *shrug* Part of the appeal of Martha (and part of what makes her show cringe-worthy at times) is that she's not an accomplished interviewer. She's much more interested in making the pie than she is in talking to Rashida. Not in a bitchy way, but just because that's how Martha Stewart is. So she interrupts her guests a lot and only half listens most of the time. When she has someone on who is "funny", she barely notices when they crack a joke because she's so focused on the food or the craft, which is funny in and of itself.

It can really lend itself to awkward and stilted interviews but Rashida is so natural and easy going with Martha that it's one of the better segments I've seen on Martha's show. (And I watch part of it pretty much every day because my classes kind of bracket it.)

Post by: SnoWhiteSally on August 17, 2009, 09:04:42 PM
I thought she had a sense of humor, but sometimes when Rashida asked a genuine question she sort of replied as if Rashida asked the most stupid question ever - maybe that's just how she is :)

Cute clips though :)

Anthem, interviewed by Aziz Ansari.
Quote
Her dating horror story:
R.J.: I went on a date with this guy and then, before I knew it, he started masturbating.
A.A.: No! He was masturbating on the date?
R.J.: We were making out, and he was masturbating.
A.A.: Oh, so not, like, at a restaurant and his right hand disappears. So what did you do at that moment when you realized he was masturbating?
R.J.: I felt very violated. I disengaged and it literally became me watching him.
A.A.: So he just kept going even after you stopped making out? So you were just like, 'I'm not down for this,' and he just kept going? That's insane. That's like a worse-case scenario.
How mortifying! Also, she was the original Charlotte when Sofia Coppola was workshopping Lost in Translation (too bad she didn't do the movie!) and did the robot voices in Transformers 2.

Velvet (Italy)
She wants to do a Broadway musical, more writing projects and possibly get a Master's degree. She'd also like to do more political/charitable work like w/ Peace Games. She's such a Mary Sue, it wouldn't surprise me if she did all of that.

[snipped] Speaking of the White House, another celeb who has some familiarity with 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. is actress Rashida Jones. She, too, has trusted her hair to Gibson’s shears, no doubt when she’s the plus-one to chief speechwriter Jon Favreau, whose arm she’s frequently been spotted clutching.

Thanks for posting the link to the magazine scans, Sabrina and kim. I think RJ looks great in the Anthem and Velvet spreads. I think she does high fashion well. I think the blunt fringe (which I like, probably because I can't have it) goes well with those looks. I tried to read the Anthem article from the scans. Having Aziz Ansari interview her made for interesting questions. Definitely different than the standard fare.

I wonder what made her cut her hair. I wonder if it was for a movie role.

She's wearing the Phillip Lim blazer from her Allure list (http://rashidajones.blogspot.com/2009/09/magazines-allure-october-2009.html) (where she's billed as "Actress and Screenwriter", aw). Love the boots and her being so excited for Where the Wild Things Are too.
(http://i304.photobucket.com/albums/nn188/lloydes/th_allure.jpg) (http://i304.photobucket.com/albums/nn188/lloydes/allure.jpg)

I was searching AWG reviews and saw this from JK (http://entertainment.timesonline.co.uk/tol/arts_and_entertainment/film/article6827663.ece?token=null&offset=12&page=2). It's already in one of his threads but they move so fast.
Quote
Has he ever found someone he thought he was going to spend the rest of his life with? “Yeah. I think the first time I did, I overanalysed it too much. As soon as I thought, ‘I could marry this person’, a slew of questions arrived — like, ‘Let’s put this thing to the test?’ And how fair is that for a girl?” He smiles softly. I assume here he’s talking about Rashida Jones, the actress he spent a few years dating. “So my hope is that, going forward, I’ll allow experience to form my decision, rather than make the decision, then demolish people with analysis.”
I'm assuming it's RJ too, and I'm really surprised he talked to a reporter about marrying her. And also their dynamic, and how he fucked it up, and using the word "demolish". IMO it implies he was kind of a jerk, but whatever. I'm now curious about her take on it but doubt she'll ever discuss it.

And kinda related, but this Nobel Peace Prize is pretty exciting for Favreau. Considering why they gave it to Obama, JF and his writing team deserve a lot of credit for it.

Universal and Imagine make 'Frenemy' (http://www.variety.com/article/VR1118009904.html?categoryid=13&cs=1&nid=2564)
Rashida Jones to co-write adventure script
By MICHAEL FLEMING

Universal Pictures and Imagine Entertainment have acquired screen rights to "Frenemy of the State," a graphic novel miniseries created by actress Rashida Jones, who will write the script with Will McCormack.

Brian Grazer is producing for Imagine. Eric Gitter will be a producer for Closed on Mondays.


The adventure revolves around a young wealthy heiress who works undercover for the CIA. Jones co-wrote the original comic, published by Oni Press, with writers Nunzio DeFilippis, Christina Weir, and Jeff Wamester.

Jones currently stars on NBC's "Parks and Recreation." The daughter of composer Quincy Jones and "Mod Squad" star Peggy Lipton, Jones will be writing her second script with McCormack, an actor whose credits include ABC's "Brothers and Sisters" and USA's "In Plain Sight." They previously scripted "Celeste and Jesse Forever," a Jennifer Todd-produced pic set up at Overture to star Jones.

"Frenemy of the State" wasn't conceived by Jones as an acting vehicle for herself, she said.

"It's intended for a girl much younger than me, about age 20, an interesting age for girls as they make that scary jump to adulthood," she said. "She has lived a life of privilege, attended the best schools and learned every language, but her obsession with spying on exes gets her into trouble and she is recruited to be a spy in exchange for not going to prison. There is a comic element to it, this girl who is so conscious of social standing and wearing the right shoes, suddenly becoming responsible for these dangerous, life-threatening missions."

Gitter's Closed on Mondays just completed the Edgar Wright-directed "Scott Pilgrim" and is developing several films at Universal.
I'm so impressed it's w/ Universal and Imagine and Brian Grazer producing. How exciting for her and Will!

And another movie role (http://scfilmsinternational.com/romantics/), w/ cast incl. Liv Tyler, Katie Holmes, Josh Duhamel, Adam Brody, Malin Akerman and Anna Paquin.
Quote
Synopsis
'The Romantics', a zeitgeist love story and generational comedy, takes place over the course of one night at a deluxe seaside wedding. In the vain [sic] of The Big Chill and St. Elmo’s Fire, seven close friends—all members of a tight, eclectic college clique—reconvene to watch two of their own tie the knot. Laura, played by Tyler, is maid of honor to Lila, her golden girl best friend. The two have long rivaled over the groom, Tom. The love triangle comes to a head on the eve of the wedding when the drunken friends frolic in the nearby surf and return to shore without the groom.

I'm not sure about this one so I'll wait and see. I've always liked Liv Tyler but sometimes she does some pretty crappy movies.
They'll probably change that poster too, if only to put the other cast members on there.

Did you see the bizarre story about RJ dating John Mayer (http://www.hollyscoop.com/john-mayer/john-mayer-dating-actress-rashida-jones_21916.aspx)?
Quote
John Mayer is up to his old tricks again. The womanizer found himself new prey and he's going to extremes to impress her.

John was spotted on a romantic date with actress Rashida Jones Friday night at the Chateau Marmont, Hollyscoop can confirm exclusively.

The couple was having dinner in a secluded area when John "took the guitar from someone who was performing and [sic] at the Chateau and performed an impromptu performance for Rashida."

His audience included Paul Rudd and Jason Segel. The crowd "went wild when he performed his new song," an eyewitness tells Hollyscoop exclusively. Mayer got such a great response from fellow diners, he even performed his hit "Your Body is a Wonderland" for Rashida.

Rashida and John left together in the wee hours...looks like Jennifer Aniston is out of picture!
As if, right? So ridiculous (and hilarious). I'd be embarrassed to write that stuff for a living.

Thank God it isn't true and my girlcrush can remain intact. He's so skeevy!
Quote
*"Parks and Recreation" star Rashida Jones is trying to squash rumors that she has become the latest girlfriend of singer/songwriter John Mayer.       
       Web gossip had the two spotted on a dinner date Friday night at the Chateau Marmont in Hollywood. Witnesses were claiming that Mayer had borrowed a guitar from a nearby restaurant performer to serenade Jones with his hit "Your Body Is a Wonderland."       

       Not true, says a rep for the actress, who insists that her client was merely eating at the same restaurant as Mayer, nothing more.        

       "She was having dinner with friends - totally independent of him," the rep told WENN. "He came over to the table she was at with her friends, said hello to everyone, (and) asked if he could play the guitar that her friends were already playing. (His) performance was not directed at anyone."       

       Jones, the daughter of producer Quincy Jones, is said to still be dating President Obama's director of speechwriting, Jonathan Favreau.
I hope she & Favreau are still a couple. I had a crush on him long before they got together, so they're like my ultimate real life OTP laughingicon

For one, he wrote it for an ex. Also, they used it in "A Benihana Christmas" (JM didn't want a royalty, the got an honorary Dundie instead) and it conjures up images of Michael singing to the Benihana waitress and Jim telling Michael about rebounds and how they're just a distraction from "the girl you really like."

Yeah, I think so. I'm def. hoping so, obvs. If they were both performing it must have been scheduled some time in advance. E's story doesn't actually say they were "together" anyway, despite the headline. Or, what this commenter said:
Quote
9.Missy Tue, Oct 27, 2009, 6:19 PM

The headline "out together" is so misleading. When you read the article it says 'well, they both performed but didn't arrive together or interact at the event.' I still believe her denial about the date and they are just friends.

I'm inclined to believe her too b/c in the past she's never addressed this kind of stuff. She just let the stories run undisputed and it sorta became assumed knowledge (e.g. on/off w/ JK, dating Favreau). I figure fair enough, she doesn't want to talk about her actual r'ships. But this story... she clarified it so quickly, y'know?

Thanks for the pics! There's that Phillip Lim blazer again. I think short hair suits her but those long bits at the front just look silly. Why are they there?

From that RJ Blog (http://rashidajones.blogspot.com/), she did some b'fast radio shows Thursday and personally denied the rumours. And awesome-ly (?), she was w/ Rudd and Segel and they were first joined by Glen Hansard and Marketa from Once. Love that movie/music!

I think she did a just correct the lies thing too; re: Mayer it did "absolutely not" happen, she expl. what did, and said it sucks to have "tawdry story" made up about you. But then, asked "how often do you come to DC to see your boyfriend?" she went "Oh, I don't talk about that stuff. No personal questions..." It's not a confirmation they're together, obvs, but it kinda fits the pattern.

I hate tabloid fodder like that, the stuff that says "a source said.." because I am a journalist, an actual legitimate full-time one who doesn't quote anonymous or secondary sources, checks all my facts, has to write a lot of lame stories, yes, but also seeks impactful stories as well, you know, a responsible, professional grown woman who takes pride in her work.
Gossipy type stuff pisses me off, because yeah, then people hear the word "journalist" and they think "trash-spreading rumor monger." I work, and have worked, with a lot of people who exercise professionalism, honor and dignity day in and day out for very little pay, and we all get a bad rap because of stories like "John Mayer serenades Rashida Jones" or "Look! Emily Blunt's crotch!"
But, people buy those magazines and go to those Web sites, so the demand remains... vicious cycle. Consumer-driven media. I would hope anyone who is offended by the printing of unfounded rumors would avoid buying those sorts of magazines or increasing traffic on those Web sites.

Thanks for the pics and vids everyone. :)
Ahh, "Holiday Road" is a classic imo. Well, the movie anyway, I've seen it a million times. She sang beautifully and looked really good in her LBD. I also forgot how funny Robin Williams can be in person before that ep.

I like her outfits lately; she looked amazing on Alexa Chung and at the Peace Games thing. Her shoes were fierce on Alexa; brown suede? studded platforms. And she wears a lot of black and white, I noticed, w/ her recent outfits (http://www.wireimage.com/SearchResults.aspx?navtyp=SRH&sfld=C&logsrch=1&s=Rashida%20Jones).

Yeah I do, but the length isn't really a big thing for me. It's more how she styles it across her forehead; swept back - no, blunt fringe - sometimes, side part swept across - almost always.

From here (http://www.accesshollywood.com/natalie-portman-i-didnt-touch-pot-till-my-20s_article_26205), in a Natalie Portman interview
Quote
The single star said she relies on friends for her own inspiration, including “Parks and Recreation” star Rashida Jones.

“[She] would fight beasts 10 times her size to protect the people she loves,” Natalie said of Rashida. “She is the kind of friend who can sub in and love you through the times when you can’t necessarily love yourself.”
Aw, how sweet. I love that they are such good friends.

Jones logs in to 'Social Network'
Thesp joins Sorkin-written pic about Facebook


Rashida Jones is the latest to log in to Columbia Pictures' "Social Network."

Justin Timberlake and Jesse Eisenberg have already boarded the David Fincher-helmed pic, which revolves around the founders of the social-networking website Facebook. Aaron Sorkin penned the screenplay.

Pic is currently lensing in Los Angeles.

Jones, who recently wrapped the bigscreen drama "Monogamy," sold her script "Frenemy of the State," which she co-wrote with Will McCormack, to Universal. In addition, she and McCormack's screenplay "Celeste and Jesse Forever" is in development at Overture, with Team Todd producing. Jones will also star in the comedy.

The actress-scribe, who most recently starred opposite Paul Rudd in the DreamWorks comedy "I Love You, Man," can currently be seen on the smallscreen in NBC's "Parks and Recreation."

She is repped by UTA and Brillstein Entertainment.
Wow, Aaron Sorkin writing and David Fincher directing. Nice! And I have a little crush on Eisenberg after Adventureland and Zombieland, so this sounds promising. Although, Justin Timberlake in a leading role gave me pause for thought... :-\

20. CELESTE & JESSE FOREVER by Rashida Jones and Will McCormack

What it's about: “A divorcing couple tries to maintain their friendship while they both pursue other people.”

AGENT United Talent Agency – Keya Khayatian (Jones)

Gersh - David Kopple, Lindsay Porter (McCormick)

MANAGER Brillstein Entertainment Partners - Andrea Pett-Joseph (Jones)

Status: Overture. Team Todd producing.
Also, her next movie The Social Network was 2nd.

I don't follow this thread much, so apologies if this is old news, but...I just saw that on Feb. 1st Quincy Jones is assembling  people to remake We Are the World, but this time to benefit Haiti:

Quote
Quincy Jones and Lionel Richie are planning a massive 25th anniversary re-recording of "We Are the World."

The timing couldn't be better, sadly enough.

The duo is summoning lots and lots of talent from Grammy weekend to stay an extra night - Monday Feb. 1 - and come to the Nokia Theater in Los Angeles. There, they will celebrate a quarter century since Ken Kragen, Richie and Michael Jackson organized the original "We Are the World" with Jones.

This time the artists invited include Usher, Natalie Cole, and John Legend. But you can bet that more names will be added shortly and that all the Grammy nominees and participants will be asked to come as well. Grammy producer Ken Ehrlich will produce the event, which will then be turned into a video and single just like it was in 1985. Don't be surprised if Wyclef Jean joins in, along with Sting, Fergie, Alicia Keys, Justin Timberlake and other distinctive voices.

It's hoped that as in 1985, everyone will "leave their egos at the door."

Originally, this anniversary celebration was to be held on Jan. 28. But when the Haiti earthquake happened, sources tell me, the whole deal changed. Now proceeds will go to Haiti relief. In 1985, "We Are the World," which begat Live Aid, raised money for Africa relief.

From Billboard. (http://www.billboard.com/#/news/quincy-jones-to-remake-we-are-the-world-1004060769.story)

There's no mention of Rashida yet, but I'm posting this here, because I'd imagine there's a good chance she'll end up participating.

Those heavy Buddy Holly all-black frames do her no favors -- too harsh on her delicate features. The ones with the silver accents have a lighter look and allow you to actually see her face.

Likewise, soft bangs or other loose waves look prettier on her than a harsh up-do or with her bangs pulled back.  YMMV.
Title: Re: Rashida Jones #2
Post by: SnoWhiteSally on May 27, 2010, 07:44:46 PM

See, I disagree about the jackets. I always feel the cut and length tend to make her look boxy and shorter.

I don't mind the necklace, but the outfit just has too many elements. The shoes, the necklace, the jacket, it overwhelms her, IMO, and she looks better when she simples it up.

Rashida Jones on Monogamy, Parks and Recreation, and Dating Other Actors (http://nymag.com/daily/entertainment/2011/03/rashida_jones_on_monogamy_park.html)

For the Parks fans:

Quote
Amy Poehler has said that when shooting wrapped for Parks and Rec this past season, she treated it like a good-bye in case you didn't get another season. Is that how you felt at the time?
Oh my God. I have to say, it was an incredibly scary experience to leave the set. I hoped we would get picked up, but we knew that even if we did, we weren't going to see each other for seven months. I mean, I could almost be having a baby by then! We get along really well, and I would actually be devastated if we didn't come back — and I don't feel that way about many jobs. There's just something about this crew of people and where we're going and what it feels like — and this is going to be a terrible metaphor, I can just feel it — that's like being in the middle of a black diamond course with all this momentum, weaving through trees, and then there's this big snowplow in front of you.

Rashida is rumored to be seeing Jake Gyllenhaal.

Source. (http://www.film-news.co.uk/show-news.asp?H=Jake-Gyllenhaal-lunches-with-Rashida&nItemID=6971)

Edited to add:  People.com has a picture, but their article doesn't imply any romantic involvement.  I always say it's not true until People reports it.

More like the 'women who were unceremoniously dumped by Jim Halpert because he's in love with Pam' club.   ;)

 Such a pretty dress! It must be tough for a beautiful actress to meet a good guy who can handle her schedule and all the publicity that comes with fame. Here's a bit of information on a slow news day:   bighugsicon

Sow news day for sure.  Even harder to take that article seriously when they claim she dated director Jon Favreau, who has been happily married for years, rather than speechwriter Jon Favreau.  Ah, "journalism"  ::).

Happy birthday Rashida!  36.  Funny how that doesn't seem old at all when you're 34.  I remember in college thinking 36 was getting kinda old.  What a fool I was then ;)  Old's still way out there.  Like 50 or something.  That is until 2025 when I'm getting close to 50.  Then it'll be 70 :p
