The following information may be hard to swallow — especially if you paid to see Fair Game in theaters — but one of our favorite catwalkers may have made a successful transition into the dicey model-slash-actress category. Gemma Ward appears in the upcoming film Black Balloon, which won Berlin Film Festival’s Crystal Bear prize, a best-feature honor awarded by young panelists. Undoubtedly, the movie is helped by Toni Collette’s respectable, hyphenate-free career — but the mere fact that the picture’s already garnering awards means that Ward, who has a sizable love-interest role, didn’t ruin it! We repeat: A MODEL DID NOT RUIN THIS FILM. Enjoy a preview of the flick above.
No verdict yet on fellow mactress Julie Ordon’s success in Flashbacks of a Fool, which wrapped last month. But it’s a Daniel Craig movie, so odds are we’d end up seeing it anyway, drooling, and singing its praises regardless of its quality. —Kendall Herbst
