Julie Christie, The Rumors Are True...

You didn't win that Best Actress Oscar Sunday night. Seriously, though. Maybe I'm admitting my lack of culture here, but I'd never heard of the '60s screen star until the unforgettable opening line of Yo La Tengo's "Tom Courtenay."

Hey, if Ms. Christie can be the object of Ira's desire, then she's good enough for me, too. (And she did win that Best Actress Oscar back in '65, so apparently besides being a sex kitten she's a pretty talented actress, too.)

Now maybe Yo La Tengo can write a song about the actress who did nab the coveted award, Marion Cotillard, and then I'll have heard of her, too. Ouch.
