Hee-hee. I liked that one
About the soft lens: Yes, I noticed it. Wow, it's so overdone! And she doesn't need it, as she's often filmed in daylight or strong indoor lighting and looks just fine. BETTER in fact.
Remember SCTV when they'd interview "Dinah Shore" or on SNL when "Baba Wawa" would interview someone, I think it was... and you could barely see the person due to the gel on the lens? haha....
Not actual gel, I know. But in the early days of film they really would smear Vaseline on the camera lens to be kinder to the older actors/actresses they were filming. hee
Methinks the crew is having a snark at her.
