    The Rock's had a crush on her since she starred in Kenneth Branagh's film adaptation of Much Ado About Nothing with Branagh, Keanu Reaves and Denzel Washington.:lovesigh: She's really pretty plus that British accent she has in real life is a turn on!:lovealot:

    She was the one who was maabit daw when they filmed Brokedown palace here. I guess she was compared to Claire Danes

    I agree that this woman has got the looks, talent, gumption and a timeless old-Hollywood appeal. Plus the fact that she is British is a major thumbs up.

    I first saw her in MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING where she portrayed the tragic Hero. She solidified her artistry in Whit Stillman's LAST DAYS OF DISCO, as well as a luminous turn in BROKEDOWN PALACE. When the film was shown here in Manila, I admit that it took a lot of convincing for me to watch it because Claire Danes was in it (before she said those things about Manila being "ghastly", I always found her a tad bland and mediocre, although in fairness, she was okay in MY SO-CALLED LIFE). But I watched the film anyway because of Kate.

    I read reviews that said that she is one of the best (if not the only) things in PEARL HARBOR, even better than the two male leads. For her fans, she will next be seen in another Merchant-Ivory production called THE GOLDEN BOWL with Uma Thurman, Nick Nolte and Jeremy Northam. Initial review from BBC said that she is the best one in the acting department among her peers in this film. She not only stood her ground -- she's better.

    She looked even better in Serendipity. I think she will join the ranks of Catherine Zeta-Jones pretty soon.


    She's a SMOKER! :P woohoo!!!!

    I liked her since I saw her in Much Ado About Nothing. And yup, she's good in Pearl Harbor but my fave movie of hers would have to be Brokedown Palace.

    I have yet to see Serendipity.

    *okay*

    :heartful:

    She's pretty in the GAP commercial with Orlando Bloom. It was directed by Vanilla Sky director Cameron Crowe.

    thought most Filipinos boycotted A Brokendown Palace because of the nasty comments about PI that Claire Daines made. I am tempted to watch it but I'll hold on to the boycott! :P

    I liked her in Serendipity. Read somewhere that she was once anorexic though.

    I remember seeing Kate (before I had any idea who she was) in this delightful British comedy called COLD COMFORT FARM. She played a recently orphaned young woman who decides to live with her quirky relatives. It's one of her earlier films (dunno if it's her first).
