Simpson and Lachey, 33, starred in the MTV reality show, “Newlyweds: Nick & Jessica.” She filed for divorce in December 2005, after three years of marriage.
She made that decision, she says, after watching the 2004 romance “The Notebook” on a plane ride home to Texas. “I just figured out the statement,” she says of the movie, starring Ryan Gosling and Rachel McAdams as star-crossed lovers. “It was about that moment of desperation. I needed to breathe.” (link)
Jessica watched a MOVIE which made her decide to divorce her HUSBAND.
This got me thinking about all the things I've done after watching movies. I'm no follower, but boy if the picture-shows don't point you in the right direction in life, I don't know what will!
1985- I had just finished watching The Man From Snowy River. It took a lot of courage, but I went ahead and tried to loose the Miner's horses down the street. They didn't seem to understand the deep, romantic impulse I had given into to open the gate and set them free. The horses just stood there and looked at me like, "Where's my carrot?"
In 1995, right after watching Pulp Fiction, I knew that contract killing/avenging for underworld figures was my true calling. I made some inquiries around town. When I found out that my options for employment included a one time reformed pot-dealer and a kid who had dropped out of the Y for poor academic performance, I decided to wait a few years. I'm still keeping an eye out to see if there are any areas of town going down hill in a hurry.
I pursued a career as a professional kick-boxer after high school.
I formented a rebellion against those English dogs in 1995. No one was with me (something about having "already rebelled" two hundred plus years ago.)
I booked a vacation at the Overlook Hotel--it looked like swell place at the time!
My toilet is on its way to being the worst toilet in North America, let alone Scotland.
I did actually bring a knife to a gun fight.
There was the time I got cut to look like Lana Turner.
I never did file for my gaming commission license, but I did host a really nice show in my living room for broadcast.
I got busy living.
Remember kids, there is nothing better to point the way in life than Hollywood. So the next time you are seeking guidance turn away from the Magic Eight Ball, set-aside your religious persuasions, just know that everything can be solved with a TBS movie marathon.
