Stealing your thunder


 obviously, these pics are stolen


Mina Suvari is in Uganda. It is one of those hush-hush visits, where a moneyed NGO flies in a big celebrity and makes them swear on their mother’s left ear that they will not attract press attention.

She is the chick who stole Kevin Spacey’s movie. It happens all the time, you know; extras coming from nowhere and stealing your thunder.

It happened with that Osmet kid in Sixth Sense when in one inconsequential sentence about dead people, he forever changed the flick and made Willis a pedestrian.

It happened with that silly Tom Cruise flick, when Cuba Gooding shot his mouth off asking to be shown the money.

Suvari will forever be the chick who became the wet dream of like all the boys who watched the movie plus their friends at school as they told them the story after lights out.

You have probably seen that scene a thousand times. People all over trying to do what she did without an effort; “lying” on the ceiling with not a stitch on in a sea of red petals.


About Steven

It wasn't me; arrest the voices. It was the voices in my head. Sike! I am Ugandan first. I care for development in my country. I am a curious observer second and I care to know what you think.

    why dont we have serious paparazzi in this country? I mean this is hollywood without the photogs- what are stars without pictures. only last month charlotte (Character name- sex and city) was here, i got to know about it when she was on her way to the airport. Natalie Portman has made kampala her second home, Goerge Clooney lives in Gulu (how far from Gulu is Darfur), and we have our very own rock song and video by Fallout Boy (no Grammy?!).
    Any way, i gues i feel cheated when celebrities come into our country and they dont create no world frenzy; not even half- of what the chaos they cause when they get into starbucks for just a cup of coffee.
