今年のセクシー女優に選ばれたのは

 


男目線の記事となってしまいますが、この時期は雑誌EsquireがTHE SEXIEST WOMAN ALIVEを発表します。今年はペネロペクルスだったようです。

PENÉLOPE CRUZ IS THE SEXIEST WOMAN ALIVE
A story about Madrid, the Plaza de Toros, bullfights, and the Sexiest Woman Alive
By Chris Jones on October 13, 2014

動画でも引用していたCruz has no physical flawsの部分がある彼女の美しさを讃えているパラグラフが以下です。

She is impossibly beautiful. When she walks into a room, men start walking into furniture. Up close, however, she becomes almost hard to look at, like staring into the most unflattering mirror. When we meet strangers, we begin scanning their faces for their strengths and vulnerabilities, for the lights and scars that will tell us something about who they are and the life they have lived. Cruz has no physical flaws, the bent noses and crooked teeth we would normally use as signifiers. Her face contains no secrets, at least not about her. But her face tells you and the room plenty about you. If you want to feel like the world’s most judged man, sit down at a table in a restaurant with the Sexiest Woman Alive.

インタビューが盛り上がらなかったのでしょうか、彼女の記事のほとんどが闘牛の話をしてごまかしている感じがします(苦笑)ミステリアスなままでいる彼女を語っている部分です。

She is more than private. It is her job to invite attention, but she is not always happy with the consequences. She loves Madrid in August, because she has it to herself. For the rest of the year, she has defenses like a castle. She will not discuss the evolution of her relationship with Bardem, for instance, whom she first met filming Jamón Jamón, at age seventeen, but didn’t marry until four years ago. “That is for us,” she says. She declines to talk about her recent motherhood (a three-year-old son and a daughter who just turned one) except to say that family is everything to her and the reason we have not seen much of her lately. And, more surprisingly, she does not want to say too much about the movie she’s just filmed—the Spanish-language Ma Ma—saying only that her character suffers from an illness she will not reveal. Nor does she want to say too much about the movie she’s about to make—Grimsby, with Sacha Baron Cohen—for reasons that are just as foggy. (She says she’s been watching famous speeches to prepare for her part; she will not say which speeches.) She has asked not to be asked about one of her rare public demonstrations of anticalculus, her controversial signing of an open group letter in the Spanish media condemning the Israeli bombing of Gaza, referring instead—at the table, in person— to a statement released by her publicist as her final word on the subject. (“My only wish and intention in signing that group letter is the hope that there will be peace,” it reads in part.)

Maybe that’s why Almodóvar likes her so much—because her secrets go far deeper than her perfect face. After more than two decades of public life, Cruz has managed to remain a mystery. It’s as though she wants us to decide who she really is, and she can be whatever we want her to be. She might not be sure herself. She says she often confuses the memories and experiences of her characters with her real life, a perpetual blurring, as though she’s become one more of her conjurings. She doesn’t feel like the sexiest woman alive, she says—she feels like a mother who doesn’t get enough sleep; Bardem is filming in South Africa, and she is anxious to return to her children—but given the role, she will play it. “Assume a virtue, if you have it not,” Cruz says, quoting Hamlet. It is one of her favorite lines.

She has little more to say. She picks her splattered white napkin off her lap and rises from her chair. All that remains on her plate is a bone and a puddle of blood.

ハムレットの舞台映画を観たばかりだったので“Assume a virtue, if you have it not,” Cruz says, quoting Hamlet. It is one of her favorite lines.という部分に関心がいきました。母ガートルードに呼ばれて寝室に向かったハムレットのシーンで、母を責め立てている、いわゆるCloset Sceneで登場します。下記動画では8分当たりです。結構セリフを削ったりしているのですね。



ハムレット対訳集という便利なものがあるのを知りました。そこから引用させていただきます。サイトでは対訳で見やすくなっています。

HAMLET
Ecstasy!
My pulse, as yours, doth temperately keep time,
And makes as healthful music: it is not madness
That I have utter'd: bring me to the test,
And I the matter will re-word; which madness
Would gambol from. Mother, for love of grace,
Lay not that flattering unction to your soul,
That not your trespass, but my madness speaks:
It will but skin and film the ulcerous place,
Whilst rank corruption, mining all within,
Infects unseen. Confess yourself to heaven;
Repent what's past; avoid what is to come;
And do not spread the compost on the weeds,
To make them ranker. Forgive me this my virtue;
For in the fatness of these pursy times
Virtue itself of vice must pardon beg,
Yea, curb and woo for leave to do him good.

ハムレット
狂気だって。
おれの鼓動は、あなたと同じように、健康なリズムで
きちんと脈打っている。おれが喋ったのは
狂気のせいではない。おれをテストしてみな。
ちゃんとオウム返しに言えるぞ、
気違いはそれができない。お母さん、お願いだから、
あなたの罪ではなくわたしの狂気が喋ったなどと、
都合のいい解釈をして事の本質をごまかさないでほしい。
それは軟膏を傷の表面にぬるようなもので、
内側から全身に侵食し感染している
腐敗を根絶する役にはたたない。天に告白しなさい。
過去の罪を悔い改め、これからは罪を犯さないようにしなさい、
そして雑草に、もっと生い茂るように、肥料を与えないことだ。
許しを請わねばならないのは、わたしではなく、わたしの美徳だろう、
今日のように堕落しきったご時勢では
美徳が悪徳に許しを請い、そして
悪徳に善行をしてくれと伏して嘆願しなければならないからな。

GERTRUDE
O Hamlet, thou hast cleft my heart in twain.

ガートルード
おお、ハムレット、あなたはわたしの心を真っ二つに切り裂きました。

HAMLET
O, throw away the worser part of it,
And live the purer with the other half.
Good night: but go not to mine uncle's bed;
Assume a virtue, if you have it not.160
That monster, custom, who all sense doth eat,
Of habits devil, is angel yet in this,
That to the use of actions fair and good
He likewise gives a frock or livery,
That aptly is put on. Refrain to-night,165
And that shall lend a kind of easiness
To the next abstinence: the next more easy;
For use almost can change the stamp of nature,
And either master the devil, or throw him out
With wondrous potency. Once more, good night:170
And when you are desirous to be bless'd,
I'll blessing beg of you.

ハムレット
それなら、悪い方の心を捨てなさい。
残りの心で清らかに生きなさい。
おやすみなさい、しかし、叔父の寝床には行かないように。
もし貞操がなければ、持っているふりをしなさい。
かの怪物、習慣というものは、感覚を食い尽くし、
悪魔のように振舞うが、また天使のようでもある、
良い行いを続ければ
すぐにそれに相応しい
衣服を与えてくれる。今夜は控えなさい。
そうすれば、次の節制は楽になる。
その次はもっと楽になる。
習慣は生まれながらの性格を変えてくれる、
そして驚くような自制心で、悪魔を御すようになる、
あるいは悪魔を放り出してしまうだろう。もういちど、おやすみなさい。
あなたが悔い改めるときが来たら、その時に、
わたしはあなたから祝福を受けよう。
