I owe you an apology.
I am sorry for all of the times I spoke negatively about you and called you names behind your back. I am sorry for not believing in you sooner and for refusing to see films because you were in them... that was wrong of me and I am truly sorry (I am also sorry for ever taking Ryans side in the divorce, these things happen and we can never truly know who is to blame. I have put it behind me and have moved on with you as my inspiration).
Your work has grown; your talents, your taste (the coverage of your costumes). You are a strong, beautiful woman who doesn't even need a physical presence to make your audience applaud your abilities! Even your 'scandalous' roles are more tasteful and amazing than ever before, i.e. your work in Don Jon.
Also, if I didn't think you were a dream before, your role in Chef clinched my love of you forever! I mean, hello, you are a power house and that is all there is to it. On that note, can we please talk about your guest appearance on Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me!?! I mean, COME ON! NPR!? Who are you? Hillary Clinton? Barack Obama?! Sheeesh. I thought Peter Sagal was going to stammer himself to death (seriously).
I could go on but I will refrain ('fan girling' isn't normally a thing I do). The moral of the story is this- Well done! Way to be a successful, seeming normal, child actor turned universal starlet with an amazing career and even better sense of humor (and yes, ok, you are still an international sex symbol, but you've really classed up your game and relinquished the less tasteful side of that title, PROPS).
I (we) are (all) looking forward to seeing your work in Lucy and know it will simply be fantastic.
All the best,
p.s. your D.G. adds are great. The hair, the vibe, good on you.
