Richard Armitage Cruise: Pics of Travel Companions

Interesting news follows on the movie 'Avatar.'  Comments on that film can be found on page 2or3 of this blog.  (p.s. on a few nominees: Jeff Bridges has been very sexy in fine films in the past - will need to check his latest.  IMO Clooney, Alec Baldwin & Streep movies are borrring...their flicks are usually effective sleep aids:)

Jeff Bridges:  Here's the once unforgettably sexy man w/Michelle Pfeiffer. 
I'm sure years later Jeff has not lost his touch BUT he's no longer gorgeous (his wife would probably disagree:)  His last movie  is a country western...definitely not my speed. 

Jeff has recently won a major award for his role in the film 'Crazy Heart.'  Yet another case of show business tending not to take seriously beautiful people w/acting talent.  Sometime in the future, when the bloom is off the rose, their acting prowess is finally rewarded by their peers.
