Alexis/Rory Appreciation #29 - Because Alexis' career is still going strong post GG


Banner by PollyGreen

Welcome to the Alexis Bledel appreciation thread! Alexis Bledel is one of the amazing actresses on "Gilmore Girls." Not only is the character she plays down-to-earth and sweet, but Alexis is the same way herself. From her love for Target to her desire to visit Dollywood, Alexis constantly gives us reasons to like her more and more.

Alexis Quotes

"She's a prostitute. She's a little ****ty. She's a professional AND she kicks ass. She has a GUN." - Alexis talking about Becky, her character in Sin City

"It always happens in places where you'd rather not be recognized. Like one time, I was just getting ready to go to bed, but I had this craving for a glass of milk. So I go to the supermarket, and I have like no makeup on, and this couple comes up to me and they're like 'Thursday night!'. They sort of yelled it across the vegetable bin, and I'm like, 'Okay, don't look at me, I look awful. I'm going over here by the celery now"

Question: If you could choose your dream role, who would you want to be cast as?
Alexis: I'd want to be the female Smurf in like a live action Smurf movie.

In response to what her most embarrassing moment was doing 'The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants': "Working with Amber!"

In response to a question about body image while modeling: "Yeah, they do, they say, you know, that you have to lose an inch here, an inch there. But I was in high school, you know, the whole time I was doing it. I started when I was fourteen, and I always, you know, just wanted to do everything I wanted to do in school at the same time as, you know, doing these jobs here and there, and I had more jobs than I could do and go to school. So, I just kind of ignored it a lot of the time. I mean, I chose to ignore it. I felt like it wasn’t something I should dwell on, you know."

"I get to the rescue and she's like a one pound dog. And I freaked out. I was like, I don't know now I'm going to keep that alive!"

Rory Quotes

RORY: Poor Pluto

RORY: I don't hate you. I can't hate the pathetic.

RORY: Peppermint.

RORY: 'You're just talking to keep yourself warm, aren't you?'

RORY: 'Anna, this is my roommate, Paris, and I'm sorry.'
ANNA: [puzzled] 'For what?'
RORY: 'Trust me.'

ANNA: He's cute.
RORY: Yes, he is, but not as cute as Pushkin.

RORY: I thought of some. Jerk, ass, arrogant, inconsiderate, mindless frat-boy lowlife butt-face miscreant.

RORY: You're happy.
LORELAI: Yeah.
RORY: Did you do something ****ty?

RORY: I'm always on your side mom, no matter what.

RORY:But my ultimate inspiration comes from my best friend, the dazzling woman from whom I received my name and my life's blood, Lorelai Gilmore. My mother never gave me any idea that I couldn't do whatever I wanted to do or be whomever I wanted to be. She filled our house with love and fun and books and music, unflagging in her efforts to give me role models from Jane Austen to Eudora Welty to Patti Smith. As she guided me through these incredible eighteen years, I don't know if she ever realized that the person I most wanted to be was her.

Thanks for the new one Jen.

And to continue on what you said; Agreed. I do think Lorelai changes a lot. She grows up with Rory as well.

I agree, Lorelai did change through the years as well, and not just her hair styles. Would love to see a collage of Lorelai like the one she made of Rory.
