    Hers is the type that looks better after 35: eyes gain intelligence, cheeks lose their wide puffiness, body altogether more trim and focused.
    O)r maybe it’s just the effect of gazillion cosmetic surgeries.

    Key in this is I know absolutely bupkis about her politics. This is a Good Thing. The less I know about their life offscreen, the more successful their careers will be in terms of box office. Trashing the studio system was not a Good Thing.

    Her politics? As a model Italian woman, she correlate them with politics of her Man of The Moment, I expect.
