Son of the Harpy

If I can speak for another poster, you’re interpreting it wrong.
“This actor gives this vibe so I would cast her” has value or at least can lead to an interesting discussion.
“This woman is hotter to me” does not.
Maybe but does being attractive not add to someone's vibe? Could Danny Devito have pulled off the vibe of Marion Cobretti? Why or why not? I think people experience cognitive dissonance about this; I feel it. Actors are often cast in roles because they are beautiful. Bill stating in some instances that he would like someone in the role to be even more beautiful is viewed as gross. Why? I expect some answer about objectification but my response to that is that the whole exercise, major motion pictures, is one of objectification so why does Bill going one step further seem so out of touch?
