More than skin-deep
The rumor is that they want to make a movie of Susan Boyle's life and brush with worldwide fame, and that the noted beauty Catherine Zeta-Jones (wed to Michael Douglas) wants to play the lead. I think they might do well to wait a while to see how the current inftution plays out, but nobody asked me. I asked my wife, whose natural outward beauty doesn't begin to approach the magnitude of her inner beauty, but which is nonetheless apparent to all who meet her, how they could make such a beauty as the inestimable Catherine look dowdy. She assured me that it would be simplicity itself -- bushy eyebrows and a beefed-up jawline would likely be sufficient. I have no choice but to agree with her on a matter far beyond my range of expertise.
