We’ve all known for a while that Cher is blasphemous for not being a Cher fan, but now she’s just taking it too far! While any of us good gays and gayelles would get our card taken away if we couldn’t recite every line from Moonstruck, Cher has made it clear in the past that she doesn’t like the sound of her voice. Well, now it appears that she doesn’t like seeing herself on camera because she said she still hasn’t really seen her performance in Mamma Mia 2: Here We Go Again.
Attitude (via Gay Star News) sat down with Cher to talk about the summer of Cher, which includes the move and her ABBA cover album. Naturally, they gushed about her turn as Grandma Ruby in Mamma Mia 2, but Cher seemed to surprise the reporter over the fact that she STILL hasn’t really seen the thing:
“I didn’t really see the whole movie because I’m not quite ready. And I will see it at some point. I don’t really love seeing my movies right away.”
Not quite ready?! What are you waiting for, Cher? A free OnDemand weekend from Comcast?? Even though some people say Cher stole the show (the movie theater I was in burst into applause as soon as the helicopter with her on it appeared on the screen…admittedly, I did see it at the movie theater in Provincetown), she previously told the New York Times that she hadn’t seen it and didn’t think she did anything that memorable. Psh, if taking the lead in a dance with Andy Garcia isn’t memorable, I don’t know what is! Well, it’s not like Cher entirely hated the thing. Everyone commented how young she looked in the movie, but she basically attributes that to the director kissing her ass:
“Make-up. Five pounds of make-up. Also the director really liked me. I think he took extra special care to light me.”
Oh please, we all know that Cher looks like that naturally!
But really, Cher added how nervous she was to join the cast since they all knew each other from the first movie, and she was the newbie on set. Psh, if they’re offering pancake make-up and good lighting for just a cameo, your ass had nothing to worry about. Poor Pierce Brosnan looked like a leather purse left out in the rain, and he’s been warbling out ABBA since the beginning!
