Having an Asian Moment: Moon Bloodgood in ‘The Sessions’

I am currently in Toronto for the Toronto International Film Festival (or “TIFF” as they call it in the biz). I have been here for over a week. I have seen almost 30 movies. The stadium-style seating movie chair has become an extension of my body.

Nonetheless, there are plenty of Asian movies and movies of the Asian ilk. There are so many that I should probably write about all of them — including my take on Cloud Atlas. (Yes, I watched that nearly three-hour epic. Yes, I liked it — but probably for the wrong reasons.) But before I begin to ramble about all said movies, I want to talk about Moon Bloodgood. This half-Korean hottie is probably most known for her role in Terminator: Salvation and the TV show Falling Skies. And as said, she is hot. Really hot. Really, really hot. Like Maxim magazine hot. But in the movie The Sessions which played at TIFF, she is Vegan Knitter Montly hot.

Yup, the picture you see above is Bloodgood who had a severe make-under for the role of Vera, the blunt and encouraging caretaker to Mike O’Brien (John Hawkes), a journalist/poet who is confined to an iron lung and is trying to lose his virginity. (FYI: This is based on a true story.) Don’t worry, Vera isn’t objectified in this. She just looks really dowdy.

A hot actress who can act. I guess she is the full actress. AND she has a cool name.
