Everyone is talking about how hot Mr. Rochester is and how pretty Jane is in the new movie. They aren’t supposed to be pretty :( THEY’RE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE BEAUTIFUL. wtf Hollywood.

PRETTY PEOPLE WERE IN A MOVIE?

LIES.

(Man, nobody wants to actually see two ugly people…

I realize that people generally don’t like watching “ugly” people in movies. That was the whole point of my previous post. That the industry is SCARED to cast less-than-beautiful people in lead roles, because of profits and whatnot. And the people who reblogged my last post and said “Of course they cast pretty leads, people don’t want to look at ugly actors” proved my point exactly. I was commenting on the fact that society is basically taught to dislike people who aren’t beautiful through pop-culture.

I was just saying how I wished that this particular adaption was a little more courageous in their casting choices, because one of the big points of the novel is that she isn’t pretty and he isn’t handsome, yet you, as an audience, learn to love them anyway. (Well, you learn to love Jane at least. I know there are a good number of readers who dislike Rochester).

I’m going to get killed for this but…

"Because," he said, "I sometimes have a queer feeling with regard to you — especially when you are near to me, as now: it is as if I had a string somewhere under my left ribs, tightly and inextricably knotted to a similar string situated in the corresponding quarter of your little frame. And if that boisterous Channel, and two hundred miles or so of land, come broad between us, I am afraid that cord of communion will be snapped; and then I’ve a nervous notion I should take to bleeding inwardly." Edward Rochester - Jane Eyre (Charlotte Bronte)
