Something Borrowed

Something Borrowed, the romantic comedy starring Ginnifer Goodwin and Kate Hudson, is based on a bestselling novel by Emily Giffin.  During a recent interview to promote the film, Giffin was asked about her opinions on the term, ‘chick lit.”

“The label ‘chick lit’ only bothers me when it’s used to disparage women in general and to sort of say, ‘well if it’s about women or for women and it’s about relationships, then therefore it has got to be beach read fluff,” said Giffin. “That’s akin to saying that everything we care about is fluff…I think the same thing goes for romantic comedies.  If you say I don’t like any romantic comedies that’s like saying you don’t like any movies about relationships.  These issues are very serious.  This is about who you are spending the rest of your life and I think if men go to it with an open mind, which will happen, they are going to like this.”

Diehard fans of Something Borrowed will notice various changes in the film version, but Giffin is more than satisfied with the end result.  Click on the media bar and listen to Giffin talk about one of those changes, which deals with Darcy’s (Hudson) hair color (director Luke Greenfield is heard laughing in the clip).
