Sarah Michelle Gellar Is Totally Game for a ‘Buffy’ Movie

Sarah Michelle Gellar has never had such a career high as she did during Buffy, The Vampire Slayer – the show was massive and still has a profound cultural relevance, if my Tumblr dashboard is anything to go by. Since lots of other long-gone shows are getting movies these days, SMG has piped up, saying she’d definitely do a Buffy movie if anyone wanted to put one together that actually worked well, hint hint.

From E! Online:

“Joss and I always talk about [a movie],” Gellar told me during an interview for E! News. “But the thing with Buffy is that Buffy was a movie, and it ultimately didn’t work as a film. And I mean, we had such miles to overcome when we were trying to do a TV show based on a movie. And one of the reasons is that the story works better over time.”

And now here comes the tiny sliver: “If there was ever the right story, we would do it.”

So there you have it. Do you think they should do a Buffy movie or let sleeping dogs lie? I was never a massive fan of the show, though I do remember crying my eyes out when she had to send Angel through that vortex thingy and then I stopped watching. Then I watched again when they did ‘Hush’ and that is one of the only episodes of TV that ever creeped me out. That’s about my entire connection to that show.

Buffy – Sorry, Sarah Michelle Gellar – Speaks!

When I think of Sarah Michelle Gellar, I think of Buffy Summers, of course. I mean, I know she was in some movies during my preteen years (Cruel Intentions and … oh, I Know What You Did Last Summer), and she was in The Grudge which I saw twice in theaters, for whatever reason. She also has a new show on TV now where she plays a pair of twins, but I have no idea what that’s all about. Really, all I know about is Buffy, and I think that’s enough.

Just think about how great it would be to actually be Buffy for a minute, all right? Think about being able to save the world so many times, to be the leader of the most lovable group of friends around, and about having dreamboats like Angel and Riley and Spike fall in love with you. It would be magical, wouldn’t it? At the very least, playing the character would be a very acceptable reason to forever live in your past (“I’m married to Freddie Prinze Jr? I have a daughter? But where’s Angel?”) But no, Sarah Michelle Gellar doesn’t care about any of that, or at least, she didn’t. What a waste.

From Us Weekly:

“Back then, if you’d called me Buffy I would probably have been really annoyed,” Gellar tells the spring 2012 issue of BULLETT, nine years after the series wrapped. “Now, of course, I get it and I’m appreciative of it. But that’s something that comes with maturity, which most people don’t have when they’re 24 years old.”

Still, Gellar admits she was always respectful of the beloved series, which ran from 1997-2003. “I’ve definitely smoked cigarettes, and I’ve partied plenty. I just got it out of my system early. I was lucky enough to have had my experiences when I was younger — and out of the public eye.”

“When I was younger, I was very careful not to. . .I just didn’t want to be seen with a drink in my hand. People looked up to [Buffy the Vampire Slayer], and she was a character that girls respected.”

I think if I was Sarah Michelle Gellar and people called me Buffy, it would be a very serious situation. I would likely lose touch with reality and several sketchy looking dudes would be surprised to get a twig jabbed in their chest. Like, I’d probably get hospitalized, but it would be so worth it. Buffy, you guys. It’s probably the greatest gift television has ever given us. Well, Buffy or Roseanne.

Oh, Hey! Sarah Michelle Gellar Has a Toddler!

Sarah Michelle Gellar is someone I think of very rarely (and that probably means only good things for her,) so I barely ever remember that she’s still totally married to the cute dude from She’s All That and that together they have a baby girl named Charlotte. In fact, I failed to remember that for so long that I was straight-up shocked to see that this baby is now a larger baby AKA a toddler, practically.

I don’t know, I’m thinking that SMG might be one of the smarter celebrities out there. She’s set for life off of her Buffy money alone yet she can still get work, she’s got an adorable husband who seems to be faithful to her (and vice versa) and they’ve got a really cute kid that’s not overexposed. Who would have thought it’d be possible for a celebrity to have a practically normal life, right Lindsay?
