Literary Thespians

Ever wondered what actors read on set?

Anna Karina gazes through her false eyelashes, the epitome of French literary chic.

Gregory Peck is in more thoughtful mood...


...while even power cuts can't keep Sophia Loren from her newspaper.

James Dean's choice of article to read aloud seems to have sent Liz Taylor to sleep.


She could learn a thing or two about reading posture from Charles Laughton...


...as could Audrey Hepburn, who may find her feet start to ache after a while.


And Clark Gable, while sitting comfortably, is perhaps a little obvious in his choice of material.

What a great post - I think I'd like to be Liz Taylor curled up on the sofa...

I love these posts of yours. Nothing makes a good looking person better looking than when they're reading. *sigh*

This should be pinned up on every Library wall as an encouragement to engage with the glamour of the printed page !
