I loved loved loved the movie “Wild” (and I hope/think Reese Witherspoon is going to take home some awards for her truly great performance.)
It’s a really emotional movie, and being a crier that means I went to The Ugly Cry about three or four separate times. One part, though, made me smile in a pleasantly-surprised “what the hell?!” way…that would be Art Alexakis‘ cameo!
I made a mental note during that scene to investigate why Art from Everclear was the tattoo artist in the movie, but then that mental note was erased by all the crying and I totally forgot after the movie to Google it. So I was so happy to see Newsweek’s tweet just now, saying that they’d been wondering too! And they called Art himself to ask what the deal was (probably a better way to get the info than Googling “why in the hell was Art Alexakis in “Wild”)
It’s a great talk with Art – I love that he didn’t even realize he knew Cheryl! ❤ Jayn
