OK, not really, but that’s what the campaign for her new movie The Roommate will have you believe.
These posters have been plastered all over the country, and when you call the number on the poster, you’ll get to hear a short message from “Rebecca”, the character in the film played by Leighton.
Don’t kill me, but I kind of want to see this movie. More than I want to see the other current Meester flick, Country Strong, anyway. When I was home over Christmas, my 14-year old sister was obsessed with the trailer and on my third viewing, it totally clicked: This is a modern update of one of the greatest movies of all time, Single White Female.
Anyone who’s ever had any semblance of a weirdo roommate who’s too up in their business can relate to this, and in this day and age, who hasn’t been there? Between college and craigslist, we’ve all unknowingly wound up in a living situation with a total freak. Thankfully, most of us come out of these situations alive.
While we’re on the subject, why not tell us about your worst roommate situation in the comments. Maybe your Single White Female wasn’t even a live-in, just a psycho disguised as a friend you couldn’t ditch. Either way, I love these stories because they make me feel like less of a freak magnet, so PLEASE tell all!
