Jerry Hall Turned Down Chance To Star In Salvador Dali Artwork

Jerry Hall Salvador Dali

Former model Jerry Hall was once asked by surrealist artist Salvador Dali to run naked through his garden for a new artwork, but she refused.

The ex-wife of Rolling Stones frontman Sir Mick Jagger was close friends with the Spanish painter and he confided in her about his bizarre plan to capture her nude and wrapped in transparent white linen.

Hall turned down the request as she felt uncomfortable stripping completely naked, but now admits saying no to Dali is one of the biggest regrets of her life.

Robert Pattinson David Letterman Kristen Stewart Salvador Dali

Robert Pattinson took a fan out to dinner - because he was "chronically bored".

The 25-year-old actor was filming 2008 Salvador Dali biopic 'Little Ashes' in Spain and after being followed by a female admirer for several weeks, he asked her to spend the evening with him - and was shocked never to see her again afterwards.

He revealed: "I was playing Salvador Dali in Spain and there was this one girl waiting outside my apartment every day for about three weeks.

Depp To Play Dali

Johnny Depp Salvador Dali

Johnny Depp has his sights set on playing eccentric artist Salvador Dali - and he's staging open auditions for screenwriters.
The Pirates Of The Caribbean star is set to play the late surrealist icon in Dali, but he's yet to find a script he really likes.
So, according to the Sydney Daily Telegraph newspaper in Australia, he has asked budding screenwriters to apply for the job.
A source says, "He's open to working with anyone - from housewives to pensioners - if the script is right."

Un Chien Andalou Review

It was released in 1929, but it still has the power to make audiences cringe today and it may remain the most notorious 16 minutes of film ever made. Called by director Luis Buñuel a "call to murder," and born of the Surrealist movement in art, Un Chien Andalou is one of the chief cultural artifacts from a time when film aspired to something larger than mere storytelling.

There is no plot, per se, but rather an amalgamation of images centering on a romance seemingly being conducted between the film's leads. Although Buñuel subverts every expectation that a viewer might bring to the film (time moves arbitrarily forward and backward, characters vanish and reappear, and the action remains stubbornly illegible), the images he uses to convey his deeper meanings remain passionate, resonant, and alarmingly, weirdly sexual to this day. These deeper meanings have to do with the innate drives sublimated to society, and in Un Chien Andalou they pop out everywhere with horrifying insistence: ants crawl from a hole in a human hand, pubic hair grows on faces, and, in the film's most infamous passage, an eyeball is slit with a razor just as a cloud cuts across the face of the moon. It's unsettling at least, but it also genuinely hypnotizes.
