Liev Schreiber in The Painted Veil
Hmm, I would like to see Liev in a painted veil, but we’ll have to make do. He’s not the most generous with his shirtlessness, but when that shirt does come off — look out! He’s muscly without being steroidy, he’s hairy without being, well, not hairy. This movie’s not bad, a bit slow — a period drama with a capital D, based on a Somerset Maugham story. And our supporting actor Liev is having a one-afternoon-stand with Naomi Watts’ character, the fickle wife of milquetoasty scientist played by Ed Norton (in one of his slimmed-down slightly-soft incarnations).
IMHO, Liev is not handsome, but he is the absolute apex of ugly-but-attractive. He makes that face WORK! And the voice… well, ’nuff said.
We’ve been lovin’ on him in the Forum… oxo SB
