Directors and their muses!








The relationship between Director and leading man or woman is one that is always fascinating, when it comes to Hollywood, the popular saying “If it aint broke, don’t fix it” springs to mind. When a director finds a kindred spirit in an actor, their creative output together can be magical, here are some popular pairings that spring to my mind:

David Fincher and Brat Pitt
Quentin Tarantino and Uma Thurman
Tim Burton and Johnny Depp
Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio
Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale
Ridley Scott and Russell Crowe
Wes Anderson and Bill Murray
Woody Allen and Scarlet Johanson
Steven Soderberg and George Clooney
Quentin Tarantino and Samuel L Jackson
Sergio Leone and Clint Eastwood
Pedro Almodovar and Penelope Cruz
Judd Apatow and Seth Rogan

 But when is enough, enough? How many more Woody Allen films can I expect to watch with Scarlett Johanson in the lead role, wow another Scorsese film starring Leonard DiCaprio…..again! Not all Directors are boring us with their muses, Quentin Tarantino and Uma Thurman’s constant pairing up on screen isn’t getting old…. yet,  but I don’t know how many more Judd Apatow movies I can watch with Seth Rogan in the lead role…..or his wife Leslie Mann for that matter….just sayin!
