Leno is a good platform for Kristen. She seems comfortable with him. And he took a break at the right time, right as her restless leg started to move (with no Rob there to anchor it down like on Kimmel). I still have to deal with genetic tremors when giving presentations at work, on a scale so much smaller. She faces this whenever it happens and her charming qualities are what those of us that love her will remember: How beautiful she looked. The adorable giggle.
Last month I had mentioned what a prick Letterman had been to her in June. But she never seemed nervous during that interview. That's interesting to consider. She probably knew that Letterman wouldn't be so cool, so she had the mentality necessary to deal with him and never let him intimidate her, though he tried. Then on Leno she had no reason to put her game face on and the nerves reared up for a moment. J took a break at just the right time and she was fine afterwards.
I have never been one to make a habit out of watching Letterman or Leno, but until this year if I had to choose one it would have been the former. I have never thought either was particularly funny. I am still not great fan of either, but I now have much more respect for Leno. This is directly related to how each has treated Kristen.
I wish there would have been a different clip for Welcome to The Rileys. For the most part that just looked like Tony Soprano yelling at his daughter. And I saw that clip six months ago. Why not show one where she had more lines? Granted she does her best acting with body language and facial expressions. This movie is the one that may get Kristen some big time nominations. She had no control over the clip but I wish it had been a new one.
So Kristen has reappeared after a long break from the public eye. No wonder why she loves New Orleans. She has been there on two occasions to work and manages to avoid the paparazzi. Even after that road trip by Rob and his mates they both avoided the cameras. I wouldn't be surprised if the people there looked out for them. Rob was definitely there but no pictures. They should consider living in that area.
I am looking forward to the weeks ahead.
