So the 70-year-old actress beat the 20-year-old ingenue head-to-head at the box office this weekend even though they were starring in the same movie. Who would have thunk it? That’s the result from exit polls showing that, among moviegoers who went to see the Morgan Creek / Universal’s Georgia Rule (and believe me there weren’t many; it was stillborn in theaters), 53% went to see Jane Fonda (even though she was channelling her father Henry), 50% went to see the story (which was critically panned), and only 34% went to see Lindsay Lohan (whose price quote just sank by half). Maybe the public has reached critical mass where it’s not good enough to simply be famous for being famous.
