Hop on Diablo Cody Pop: Article of the Week

I've had a girl crush on Diablo Cody since seeing the trailer for her soon-to-be-released film, Juno before Darjeeling Limited last month and even though I've yet to see it myself, I've heard only incredible things from reliable sources. I started e-stalking Cody the second I saw the Juno trailer (see below), finding much to my "you go girl" surprise that first-time screen-writer Cody was a former stripper cum blogger cum memoirist cum screen-writer d'awesome... And POW: a hero was born:

Diablo Cody = Sha-wing.

Cody done made herself a star. By being herself and being good at it. My top hat goes off to her.

To read more about Cody, featured in last week's Entertainment Weekly, go here.

I really want to give her a high-five. Or get her drunk enough to make out with her in a bathroom. Because she's ballsy and smart (and CRAZY hot) and making it happen her way. And that's an inspiration (not to mention sexytimesathousand.)

Read Diablo Cody's blog, here. Check out how it all began, here. Oh and here's her memoir, Candy Girl. There's also a fantastic Letterman appearance, here. Oh, yeah, and the trailer for Juno:

That movie looks great! I can't wait to see it. The trailer cracked me up and I read a good review about the movie somewhere, can't remember where. And yes, Cody is adorable. Who wouldn't want to make out with her in the bathroom.

I swear to god, I read the EW article about her and thought, that's going to be Rebecca Woolf in a year or so--by that I mean on your way to becoming a household name. JUNO looks fabulous, and Diablo Cody sounds freakin' fascinating. Sigh.

Um, Diablo Cody - she remind you of anyone much? That girl Crush of your is kinda Freudian Rebecca - you'll be physically making out with yourself. Hot idea, "bags" I shoot the movie for that one.

I have been obssessed with her since I found out about her memoir someplace, and then spent months debating buying it (money being tight) before finally Amazoning a used copy. It was a blast to read, she's so fascinating. And I can't wait to see her movie - I've heard good things about it.

I LOVE CANDY GIRL and have passed it along to another cool friend to help spread the joy. Just like you are doing here GGC - damn girl, you rock - just like Diablo.

Looks good. I am not great with celeb names and such, but certain ones stick, and hers seems to be one that sticks...

I am so freakin' excited about that movie. I saw the trailer before some other movie and I forgot all about the movie but was raving about the trailer afterwards.

I've watched it like six times online since then.

Diablo Cody's talented (like you), smart, etc, and damn, you guys kinda look alike....freaky!

Her movie looks awesome, can't wait to see it!

ps - When Rockabye comes out on film, can I have a cameo?

"Because she's ballsy and smart (and CRAZY hot) and making it happen her way." Honey, you *are* aware that this is what we all think about you, right?

But I'll save my make-outs for Michael Cera...

she does look kinda like you :) I thought that before I even read the comments.

I am so curious about that movie now...

And um, yeah, it's true: Rebecca loves GGC!

Juno looks awesome. I love quirky teen films.

(Excuse me, now I'm off for a conference call involving my copywriting skills. Damnit, I knew I should have started stripping when I had the chance! Why, oh why can't stretch marks be sexy?)

Um, yes dear, you do have some narcissistic tendencies, no? It's all part of being young. That being said, I hate the whole "I'm a geek being bad" memoir. How dull. It's a kind of journalism I suppose, but the experience is always that of an outsider.

I love the girl in this movie! She was in a movie called Hard Candy. Very, very good.
