Amanda Peet : anyone else find her annoying?

anyone else find her annoying?

I can't stand her in 99% of the movies she's been in, but I saw the first episode of Studio 60 and kinda liked her… I hope she's made some sort of turn from annoying to likable….

Re: anyone else find her annoying?

she annoys me cause she just strips down and is hailed as a great actress.

Re: anyone else find her annoying?

I don't know if this is her doing or the program's but WHY does she get this "look" in her eyes at the end of the scene that looks like she's having some sort of a brilliant idea or something, but nothing happens. THe first time I saw her do it I thought, oh OK, must be she's getting an idea or a brainstorm, but then they just kept doing it and doing it. Finally, I stopped watching the show after the first episode because it annoyed me so damn much! Are they still doing that or what? Was I the only one who noticed this?

Re: anyone else find her annoying?

You not understanding something and being annoyed by it doesn't make it bad television. Her character is idealistic, and that look is the same look you can find in the eye of anyone ready to take on the world with an optimistic attitude and plan for making it better.

If you stopped watching the show after the first episode, you're missing out on an excellent show – easily the best new series this season, in my opinion. And Amanda Peet contributes greatly to it, although she is but one of several integral characters to the show.

Re: anyone else find her annoying?

I'm always perplexed by those who spend any amount of time on an actor/actress's board slinging mud. It's just so weird. It's like spending all day on a Paris Hilton board saying what a whore she is. What an utter waste of time for you and those who come upon your posts. Because I have to wonder - if you hated her THAT much, why waste your time on her at ALL? Sure, you have a right to express your opinion, I just happen to think you must like her much more than you're willing to admit, given how much time you willingly devote to criticizing her.

Re: anyone else find her annoying?

Reteena, oh wow, that's exactly what i was thinking! i couldn't have explained it better. that "look"… i wanted to smack that look off her face from the first episode. and how she has an answer to everything… there's a better way to act these lines, you know… i ALMOST stopped watching because of her but i kept watching and you know what? the show must've gotten a lot of the same response because she is completely different now. MUCH improved. a more likable character now. give it another shot. you might be pleasantly surprised! i can't help you with that paulson(?) actress though. man, now if only they can get her replaced…

Re: anyone else find her annoying?

Thanks, HeatherFree for NOT making me feel bad for making an observation. The whole time I watched the first episode I kept saying to my husband, "What's up with the eye thing?" He didn't see it either. I guess because I didn't find the plot particularly entertaining, I paid more attention to what the actors were doing or not doing. Perhaps I should give the show a second look, but from what I'm hearing these days, it may not be doing all that well.

Re: anyone else find her annoying?

Exactly! I never thought of it that way but thats exactly the look she gets. She does it in every movie.
I'm still trying to figure out why she gets so many roles. I've yet to see her do something thats memorable.

Re: anyone else find her annoying?

I think that she is very glamorous and oh so yummy!!!

Re: anyone else find her annoying?

I don't think anyone considers her a "great actress", at least I haven't heard anyone call her that. She's pretty good at playing the comedic stone cold bitch role. I liked her in The Whole Nine Yards and Igby Goes Down, Saving Silverman was awesome, but she has played some dumb roles. Namely, The Whole Ten Yards. You understand…

Re: anyone else find her annoying?

Yes, she is beyond pathetic. What a scank in High Crimes and totally obnoxious smacking on her bubblegum. As Matt Damon's wife in Syriana, she was absurd. I mean, i even felt embarrassed for her corny lines and horrible acting. She was not at ease w/ her lines and seemed stiff and silly. ok, so, she didn't write her lines, still, her interactions w/ Damon were so bad, she should have been dumped from the cast. Ridiculous relationship w/ her husband since the lines made her seem like a giddy dimwit teenager on a 1st date, yet she was suppose 2 be a married woman w/ 2 kids for cryin out loud.

Yup, very annoying. LOSER. Glad to see i am not the only 1 who thinks so.

Re: anyone else find her annoying?

I don't find her annoying at all. I've been a fan since I saw her acting in the incredible film, Igby Goes Down. She was pretty good in that film. Very confident.

She's also my favorite character on Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip. You really shouldn't have stopped watching after the first episode, even if you don't like her! There are many more characters on the show and Amanda Peet will definitely grow on you throughout the show. The last episode they played on Monday was fantastic… Amanda Peet really stole the show there.

Fun and Failure bot2000h start out the same way. –Arrested Development.

Re: anyone else find her annoying?

She's AWESOME! Keep watching her on Studio 60 to learn to love some more.

She's blossomed thorough her career and continues to do so, without ever leaving behind her own touch of personality. She's an "ass-kicker" no-nonsense, funny kindda girl and if you don't like it - well… then you're allowed. But I dig and lots of other people do.

So there!

Re: anyone else find her annoying?

I liked her in most of her movies, but in Studio 60, I just find her gross, repulsive, and extremely annoying. Especially with that intellectual satirist style of humor that Studio 60 has. It doesn't suit her at all. Yuck. And her face looks like Mrs. Skeletor. She just looks gross. What did she do to herself?

Re: anyone else find her annoying?

she is not only annoying but also ugly.

she looks like a male person.

regards…

Re: anyone else find her annoying?

hell no baby! She;s great!

Re: anyone else find her annoying?

no she's not.. she's great!!

Re: anyone else find her annoying?

i'm stumped as to why they cast her in so many movies, etc. she's quite boring. very forgettable.

Re: anyone else find her annoying?

She is #1 on my most annoying actress list and has been for quite some time. She is a horrible actor unless she is playing a bitch. I will not watch a movie/tv show with her in it. This is a shame; because for some odd reason she is cast along side some very decent actors/actresses. Has anyone else noticed that almost every movie she is in, she is fully to half naked. (Not that other actresses aren't). We are all entitled to our opinions, and this just happens to be mine.

Re: anyone else find her annoying?


very forgettable.
It seems you remembered long enough to visit her board and bitch about her being forgettable.


Re: anyone else find her annoying?

I can't stand her either. She is horibly miscast in Studio 60.

Re: anyone else find her annoying?

She's really annoying in that one episode of "Law & Order" where she played a rich girl that was abducted, but who ended up Patty Hearst-like and was finally convicted of murdering four people. Her lips quivered sooo much that I felt like punching her in the throat. Ugh. However, I did like her in "Something's Gotta Give", "Identity" and "Igby Goes Down".

Re: anyone else find her annoying?

i liked studio 60 but couldn't stand her character! gotta love peet though it wasn't her fault.

Re: anyone else find her annoying?

I find her incredibly unattractive, so ugly she is!
I cant watch anything with her. Her eyes are evil. She looks posessed. shes got breasts like pancakes. shes sick looking

Re: anyone else find her annoying?

nope, you are the only one.

Re: anyone else find her annoying?

She's terribley annoying. I hate how the only reason she has a career is because she has great features.

Re: anyone else find her annoying?

amanda peet is a good actress. if you're not a believer please watch "a lot like love." yeah, i know, it's a "when harry met sally" knock-off that lacks great direction/plot and subsequently, (unfortunately) is destined to be character-driven. and with ashton kutcher in the leading role, i paid five bucks for eye candy. however. amanda peet carried that movie with her wonderful characterizations of the stages of life emily (her role) goes through. it's her subtleties that convince you. unfortunately, besides that i've only seen her in saving silverman which was fine, she did her job, but a lot like love made me want to see a lot more of her. and she is quite beautiful.

Re: anyone else find her annoying?

Dude above me…it isn't for you to decide if she is a good actress.

In my opinion, she's a silly slutty bag bimbo with no talent. All she has been in are stupid idiotic chick flicks and one horrible movie with Bruce Willis.

Re: anyone else find her annoying?

i find her repulsive… if that counts?

Re: anyone else find her annoying?

The only thing annoying are you people. i think that hollywood and the rest of the world agrees with me.

She's a great actress. if she wasn't she wouldn't be in many movies and no director would hire her for that reason.

Re: anyone else find her annoying?

She isn't really in many "good" movies, I kn0ow it isn't for me to decide what is a good movie. Seriously though, she isn't in anything but silly PG-13 quasi-sex comedies. She isn't a serious actress, she's silly and annoying.

Re: anyone else find her annoying?

Being hot has nothing to do with it and that's exactly the sort of thinkg I'm talking about. She get's jobs due to her beautiful tits, I'm a guy and I have class, why can't every other guy.

I'm not gay either (I say pre emptively). I just have a brain.

Re: anyone else find her annoying?

Liking her simply because she has nice breast is a lack of class, it's bias. It's not a good reason to like someone, you shouldn't watch movies for good breasts, it's exploiting the art behind it. Saving Silverman in my opinion ain't art.

Re: anyone else find her annoying?

Again, in my opinion it ain't art, I thought it was crap. I was very disappointed by all with that film, even the legendary jack Black.

I realize her sex appeal, but when that's all you have to your name, that isn't admirable, nnot much work of her own went into those breasts, looking hard ain't hard and it ain't creative I tell ya.

Re: anyone else find her annoying?

Not gonna happen….in fact, If I see her in a movie, I purposely avoid it.
She lacks everything. Blah Blah Blah

Re: anyone else find her annoying?

I do

Re: anyone else find her annoying?

Yes, very much so.
(And don't reply to me in particular, I spent three seconds doing this.)

Re: anyone else find her annoying?

OMG i find her so annoying, i dont know what it is?? please someone explain it to me :P

Re: anyone else find her annoying?

me as well :-)

Re: anyone else find her annoying?

I couldn't agree with you more lholm. I think she is overrated and ugly as hell. she can't act and she hasn't done anything that would turn heads.

Re: anyone else find her annoying?

I don't think she's annoying as a person, because I don't know her and haven't seen most of her work, but I don't think she's done a good job of choosing films. I also think there's a serious disconnect between her looks and the roles she plays. Don't get me wrong, she's pretty, but she always seems to play up her goofy, frumpy side. At her best she is very statuesque and she should play off that. I also think she chooses the wrong hairstyles, clothes, and sometimes makeup for her face. Half the time I see candids of her, her hair is pulled back in a very unflattering manner, center parted and just pulled straight back, which makes almost anyone look terrible. She has an unusual look and I suspect she could be way prettier than she is. Putting on some weight would be a good start. She's just so sloppy somehow–I can't really put my finger on it but there is just something that rubs me the wrong way about her image.

That said, she and David Benioff make one of the cutest Hollywood couples I've seen, I'll give her that.
