'We're Just Good Friends?!'
By MovieTalkies.com, 28 April 2011
Ouch. Not again. But yeah, whadya know… it happens with alarming regularity. Film journos have gotten used to it by now and know the real implications when the line is handed out by stars, who possibly imagine that pen pushers haven't figured out the real deal.
Year after year, stars who are thick in the midst of a romantic liaison/ swift fling/ one night stand/ casual sex/ whatever… have the sweet audacity to declare to the media that they're just "good friends."
Take this nice Ms. India title winner, a rage of her times (aha, no names) who was involved with an industrialist sort. As soon as news of their romance trickled out (thank God for "close sources", he he he) the actress concerned batted her mascara laden lashes to the scribe tribe and sounded out her relationship status: "We're just good friends."
Hmmmm, so did this yesteryear biggie whom I queried about this starlet he was promoting. She'd made a minor splash on television, but Mr. Alcoholic Superstar had higher plans for her on the big screen… and was possibly extracting a huuuuugggggeeeeeee pound of flesh from her for it too.
