Adam has always enjoyed watching the admirable Ms Newton on screen. So he was pleased to read this profile from The Times today.

Thandie Newton famously turned down a starring role in Charlie’s Angels to focus on her marriage. By repute, she’s generous, frank and swears like a soldier. But I’m wondering what I’ll find: our meeting has been pushed back several times, and Newton herself seems controlling, dictating the clothes, location, look and feel of the photoshoot. Her stylist was summoned from Los Angeles. The photographer was vetted. Had our girl from Cornwall turned a bit Hollywood?

He was intrigued to discover from the article that Ms Newton is soon to be seen playing Condoleezza Rice in an Oliver Stone movie. Whilst sure that Ms Newton will essay the role with grace, Oliver Stone’s recent movies have been somewhat hit and miss!
