Context, people, context

I stumbled across this respected-author New York Times blog in which they were discussing “Why do animated films use such famous voices?” It’s built around Coraline, and the author says “I have to believe that there are a group of voice actors and books-on-tape readers who don’t have the faces to be movie stars but have great voices.”

To which I respond — wha-hunh? The stars of Coraline are Dakota Fanning, Teri Hatcher, and John Hodgman. In what universe is Teri Hatcher a movie star, if you don’t count Coraline? In what universe does John Hodgman have the face of a movie star?

This blog must’ve been written from the land of the other mother.
