Sharon Tate’s sister says Jennifer Lawrence is ‘not pretty enough’ to play the late actress in Tarantino flick

 

Not all blonds are created equal.

The sister of late actress Sharon Tate thinks that despite Jennifer Lawrence winning an Oscar, the "Joy" star lacks the stunning beauty necessary to tackle the role of Sharon in an upcoming Quentin Tarantino film.

"Not that I have anything against her, but she's not pretty enough to play Sharon," Debra Tate told TMZ. "And that's a horrible thing to say, but I have my standards."

The eccentric "Pulp Fiction" director is set to take Tate's 1969 murder to the big screen, and has reportedly approached Lawrence and Australian actress Margot Robbie to potentially bring the star to life.

And, as far as Debra's concerned, it's only Robbie who gets the seal of approval.

"My pick would be Margot simply because of her physical beauty," she said. "And the way she even carries herself is similar to that of Sharon. Physical beauty wouldn't be so important but Sharon's six years of her public life were all based on that incredibly beautiful, natural, perfect look in both soul, heart and spirit. So that's what I'm looking to try to capture."

Tate was 26 years old and eight-months pregnant when she and four others were murdered in her home by members of the Manson family. Her husband, director Roman Polanski, was away in Europe filming a movie at the time.
Tate, who was older than Debra, was an actress whose star was on the rise after she received a Most Promising Newcomer Golden Globe nomination for 1967's "Valley of the Dolls."

Though Sharon's portrayer has yet to be officially cast, Debra insists she should have a say in who eventually nabs the role both personally, and legally, as she owns the rights to Sharon's intellectual licensing.

"I feel that Mr. Tarantino needs to reach out to me," she told the gossip site. "I'm not necessarily opposed to the project, but I am very concerned in how he would portray my sister and I would like to sit down and have a chat with him. He needs to, in my opinion, portray her as she was and not sensationalize or go into a lot of these nut internet rumors."

Charles Manson and three associates, Susan Atkins, Linda Kasbian and Patricia Krenwinkel, were found guilty of murder and sentenced to life in prison for their brutal crimes in 1971.

Sharon Tate was GORGEOUS! There is no doubt about that. She must have had thousands of pictures taken of her, and there's NEVER a bad pic! You can't say that for most beautiful women. There's always one bad pic. But I've never seen one bad pic of Sharon.

Now when she spoke it was a "turn off" for me. That fake British accent was just a turn off. So as long as she kept her mouth shut, she was just beautiful!

She was a brilliant model, she could do any layout that was demanded of her, and she always pulled it off brilliantly.

There aren't many women in 2017 that match Sharon's je ne sais quoi so trying to find one in Hollywood is a losing battle. Whoever is picked to play Sharon will have to be coached to learn how to BE Sharon!

Now, having said that, I'm not sure if I agree with Debra trying to cast that movie. If Debra wants to be on the writing team and make sure that her sister is portrayed in the best way, I'm all for that. Not sure if she should be casting the movie.

Just my opinion!!

The article ends with:

Charles Manson and three associates, Susan Atkins, Linda Kasbian and Patricia Krenwinkel, were found guilty of murder and sentenced to life in prison for their brutal crimes in 1971.

I wish these people would check their facts before going to print...

I think Sharon was much more beautiful than both. Debra could have been a bit more tactful though.

katie8753 said...

Yeah I agree Donna. If Debra tries to get too bossy, she might run Quentin off. I agree she should have some input on the description of her sister, but choosing who plays her is really not her job.

Sharon was beautiful for the time but you could pick the typical early 20s girl off any porn set and theyd blow Sharon out of the water lookswise, times have changed

I don't think so Susan. Sharon had an enduring beauty. In fact, I've never seen such beauty in the years before or after her death.

And I don't think some girl off a "porn set" would even be par for the course.

Sharon was a natural beauty and that is rare.

My computer broke down, just got back online.

There's only been a few actresses as pretty as Sharon Tate. It would probably cost a lot of money to try to reproduce her "look" now.

OJ Simpson just got parole. When I was in prison I remember all the black guys running around saying "if the glove don't fit, you must acquit". I still have OJ Simpson on a football card from when I was a kid, he used to run all over the Baltimore Colts. He was a good football player.

katie8753 said...

Thanks Sunset. I watched OJ's parole hearing and I was surprised he got out. But they made it clear to him that if he violates any of the parole conditions, he's back in the slammer for the rest of his sentence.

Evidently all his children have moved to Florida, which is where he plans to move.

His eldest daughter spoke for him today and she didn't really say much, but she did say "the last 9 years have been hard", and I was surprised that she didn't go back to 1994. I would think that was harder.
