I don't know why I never came across this before, but The New York Times Magazine has done this incredible piece for their online magazine which you have to spend some time looking at. It consists of about 500 photographs of 8 of the biggest stars from the award season this year as they get ready prior to the events and shows them without makeup, and at their most vulnerable. In addition to the photographs there are audio commentaries that go with each group of photos. The photos themselves are amazing to look at it. The eight performers include Kate Winslet, Frank Langella, Robert Downey Jr., Sean Penn, Kat Dennings, Mickey Rourke, Penelope Cruz and Brad Pitt. This is very much worthy of a few minutes of your time today or tonight. I'm grateful to the person who sent it to me. Very cool.
