"Butter to My Bread"

"You are the butter to my bread, the breath of my life. I love you, you darling woman." -Stanley Tucci/Paul Child



Ok. Somebody please find me a younger, less-bald, real-life, LDS version of Stanley Tucci as Paul Child. Please? He was the most wonderful husband: the way he let her be exactly who she wanted to be, and appreciated her all the more for it. He adored her. And she felt the exact same way about him. The love that he and Meryl Streep/Julia Child had for each other is enough to make anyone believe that Love really can conquer all. Gosh.
Julie & Julia was great, but Stanley/Paul was the star for me (with an honorable mention going to Julie's husband, Chris Messina/Eric Powell).Where do you find men like that nowadays? If anyone knows, please let me in on the secret. I'm sure my Grandma Bonnie and her children and their children and my adorable(?) children that he and I have will be eternally grateful.

You stole the words right out of my mouth. I love that movie because of that man. And I love your children together.

Hahaha you and Stan would have some adorable babies. That movie was SO cute and he was for sure one of my favorite characters. I was so stressed something was going to happen to him the whole movie...

Laughing again -- perhaps you and Stan should pray for all boys! I guess I better go see that movie. It never interested me one iota til you and a few others said how good it was. Besides, I love Stanley in anything. A few more inches in height and hair, a baptismal certificate, and a Nevada residence and I'll call the temple for you myself!

Brooke. You are killing me -- in the best sense of kill. I love you.

The whole time I was watching that movie, I couldn't stop thinking about how much Paul Child looks like Tobias. I mean, how can you NOT draw the comparison? The baldness...the mustache...the wardrobe. I mean, really.
