Hi Everyone! I'm one of Joel's newest fans. I work with the Seattle International Film Festival and discovered him after watching Lola Versus. All that everyone at the Q and A could do was ask writers Zoe and Daryl about Joel (new to some not familiar with Swedish cinema). Seattle has a big Swedish community so he created interest. It's fun to watch certain talented actors etc. coming out of the film festivals blow up large. I see it every year but he is definitely special. Has a huge career ahead of him here! And he's beautiful, as a bonus. I've been enjoying all the posts from you all so I can get up to speed with his career and interesting after hours life. I agree with bagberry 13 about his gf (was surprised about this chioce)...and she is a minor actress here in states who is only known for being "hot" in American magazines. I have only seen her on talk shows and she comes across as dizzy when she tries to be funny. She was in the top 5 on a recent Maxim list so she is basically his "starlet gf for now" who he may have alot in common with but the pap stuff will get old, quick. He'll have fun with her and move on to an intelligent, talented and beautiful woman, probably in the biz because he loves his craft. Or bagberry13.... I like that he is serious about his career but really laid back about relationships - open about possible marriage or just having a child with an extraordinary person he can't get over and stop thinking about. And of course he'll have fun until then (just no cheating please). Very boho. What do you all think?
