Click Pic to Appreciate Gael
|Gael Garcia Bernal
If you haven’t seen the guy then you are missing half of your (woman’)s life. Exaggeration? Nah. This guy has it. He can look fresh even without taking a bath (see Amores Perros and Y Tu Mama Tambien), he can look clean-cut even with his hair disheveled (in Amores, he wears a shaven look in the last 20 minutes of the film, but ruggedly good looking in the first 2 hours). His eyes are just like “the wolf” as his director calls them. His acting is superb and makes you think that those Hollywood actors, twice his age, are amateurs. He is Gael Garcia Bernal, recently turned 24 years old, a native of Mexico, a student of the Central School for Speech and Drama, then of London, until he broke away and started Amores Perros – the rest is now history.
We’d review two (2) of his films, before another one comes out (“The Crime of Father Amaro,”, there is “San Noticias de Dios” with that Spanish actress named Penelope Cruz and another wherein he is due to take the role of Che Guevarra, directed by Walter Salles of Central Station fame).
Ladies, presenting Gael, Guys, he’s our poster boy for the rugged man look. See if you can go without a bath for 3 days and still look this handsome.
