Day 255 - Paul Child's Big-Ass Turquoise Ring

Day 255.

For half of this movie, Paul Child (Stanley Tucci) wears this bigass, obnoxious turquoise ring on his right hand. Oh, and it is really douchey-looking.


Don't get me wrong--I fucking love the 'Tucc in this role. I just don't understand why he has to wear that giant, clunky-ass piece of jewelry for most of his screen-time. Did the costume department run out of costume jewelry? Actually, that loud aquamarine turd pretty much epitomizes costume jewelery... This deserves a closer look.

From an L.A. Weekly article on Julie & Julia:
"Stanley Tucci plays Paul in the film. In a nice touch of verisimilitude, throughout the film the actor wears a turquoise ring that belonged to Paul."
Oh, well that explains it--VERISIMILITUDE!!! That ugly-as-fuck ring belonged to the real Paul Child. Who knew? Or more importantly, who cares? 

Flippin' us the big turquoise bird.

The answer? NO ONE. And regardless of where that ring came from, it's still obnoxious as fuck.

  8. I've watched the film on DVD about 30 times and cringe every time i see the ring. But i love the film so much i wanted to know why. In his role in The Devil Wears Prada he also wore a huge ring ALL the time but he was playing a gay part so that was ok but it was horrible in J&J maggie

  9. I'm going to have to disagree. I think the ring is great- I didn't know it was actually PC's, but since it was so prominent, I knew it had to be something that was identifiable to the man, himself. You can't make stuff up when you do a bio pic... You couldn't say that the Krupp diamond is too much if you do an Elizabeth Taylor piece. You get a copy of the Krupp! Since I have a December B-day, I am all about finding one as "douchey looking" as this. After all, "douchey" is in the eye of the beholder.
