The Galifinakis thing, who knows what happened in that table? maybe she was trying to make a joke, maybe he has low self esteem as most comedians, or maybe she was being mean, in that case all bets are off, who cares how she looks, but Damon Lindelof knew what he was doing when he made that comment, and it's pretty much low.

Emma is not as powerful as Xavier. She was never shown to mentally control anyone so im gonna assume she cant, well not to the degree and ease that Charles does it. Shaw even said this telepath is powerful when he found out that the russian officer and been mind controlled. Even if she did control someone into freeing her she obviously couldn't get far enough with a ton of agents there that she couldn't control. I know in the comics when Scott automatically assumed she could do this telepathic feat on a lot of people she told him that she wasn't Xavier.

Yeah, no telling what was said. It was Unknown by the way, fyi. But yeah, he was probably being a smart ass trying to crack jokes and she got fed up and started to act snobby and blow him off. Thus, by saying that THEY were both being rude it does allow him to cover himself if she responds and repeats what he may have said and did. Pretty smart, if he was the one being the jerk first.

She at least didn't make the thing public, she said he was naturally funny to a reporter, he was the one that told the weird table story. If he had a problem with her he should have told her the next time, or at least leave it alone, but taking it to the press? one can almost eat a cracker and quote Emma Frost.

True, but that makes you think. Either he is all about attention. Which I don't think he is or she was the one really being an arse and he was just keeping it real.

You know what?, she's hot and he's kinda funny, they're probably both horrible people.

I'm gonna give Jones the benefit of the doubt on the whole Zach Galifianakis issue. There were recent reports about how he was really awful at some the Hangover II premiere party when he was stressed out, so I think he's just a moody guy that is easy to set off. The reason he spoke out against Jones was that he was confused about why she complimented him in an interview. So I think their "altercation" was trivial in her opinion, and he's still holding a grudge.

As for her portrayal of Emma Frost, I think it was more than adequate. The most obvious problem I had was her line delivery in the interrogation scene, and really, Vaughn could have easily made her do it differently. That's what multiple takes are for.

The only other things were the few times Emma was shown waking through the sub, her body language looked kind of tired. When she entered the mirror room, she even abruptly stops for a second when the door hadn't completely opened. That take should not have been used. Again, I think the director should notice these things and correct their actors. Emma should strut a little when she walks.

No, you're not; she was one of the highlights for me, and I said as much on another board. Here's the reasons I liked her performance as much as I did, posted from said board:
Quote:
I judged Jones' performance based on the role of her character and the way she played off of Bacon; to me, their relationship was a nice echo of the relationship in Singer's first two X-Men films between Erik and Raven/Mystique, and I thought she even channeled Rebecca Romjiin in a few places, which was neat. I also liked the way Jones played her scenes with the Russian general and Col. Hendry.
As an aside, I should note that FC is the first thing I've ever seen her in.

If I may...Zach only brought up that story after a reporter commented to him that January (in another interview) complimented him by saying he was one of the most naturally funny people she'd ever met and he was completely flabbergasted at that. Thus explaining that they had met only once and were very "rude to eachother".

Hence the story.

I'm glad I am not the only one who loved Jones as Emma. The only books I've read with her in them are Whedon's Astonishing run, but Jones in First Class pretty much matched how I imagined Emma to be. She came off as very cold, confident, and manipulative. I mean she wasn't o the same level as Fassbender, McAvoy, or Jennifer Lawrence, but she still gave a good, entertaining performance.

Same here. I thaught she did a great job with the character. When I saw her on screen I kept thinking wow, that's Emma Frost. I don't think people realize she's supposed to be this stoic, ice queen with a dark side. Something tells me a lot of the hatred might have something to do with the gossip surrounding her pregnancy.

Yeah but if you think about it.

Where is Emma gonna go? She can't go to Cuba and join Shaw/company that fast.

How is Magneto going to recruit him if she escaped?

He did it deliberately, it's quite obvious, because his regular collaborator JJ Abrams has a new movie (Super 8) coming out this weekend so he was trying to find something to trash in First Class...

I think if that was the case he would have just trashed the film itself.

I doubt it. A lot of people I know made similar jokes about Jones. Just because he actually has an audience and people paying attention to him doesn't mean he's not going to make comments like that.

That's pretty cruel I guess, but it isn't the first time someone has publicly said something like that. The difference is, it's usually a movie critic. It catches more attention when a writer/director/producer/actor says something of the sort.

Still, I laughed.

But I disagree... I actually thought she was good in the film (and is also good on Mad Men). And that's saying something because I really THOUGHT she was going to be terrible after seeing the previews.
