Debra Tate says Jennifer Lawrence is ‘not pretty enough’ to play her sister.
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.
"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."
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.
My opinion: 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.
