Sic Transit...


May 2, 1989:  In that magic moment, Geena and Jeff knew - they just knew - that stardom was forever, that their marriage was a golden, shining thing, and that in a few hours (after the premiere that they've gotten so dolled up for) their latest joint effort, Earth Girls are Easy, would be a great, big hit that would vault them ever higher in the Hollywood firmament.

Well.  So what if they weren't exactly Newman-Woodward in the wedded-bliss department.  I hear she was terrif a few years ago voicing Stuart Little 3, and as for Jeff, well, a guest spot on Glee is nothing to sneeze at, no?  Oh, dear; time in its flight...

  4. I was on the Jeff & Gina Love Train back in the day. They were just so tall, taught and dewy with youth. Like my hair, I was certain they'd be lush, lovely and, well, there forever.

    Time is a thief.

  5. You know, this did come off a little meaner than I intended. There's nothing at all wrong with either Davis or Goldblum, and he especially has had an successful and offbeat career. I just think it's interesting that there was this moment when it seemed like they were going to be Brangelina avant la lettre, which obviously didn't happen.

    But then, she did make Cutthroat Island, so being a little mean is probably perfectly justifiable...
