I must admit, like many I was rather looking forward to seeing Thandie Newton on the cover of BlackBook's October '08 issue, especially after Tilda Swinton's stint last month. However now after seeing it, I'm not too fazed. The black-and-white cover not only is yawn-worthy, but it makes the actress look uncomfortable and well, not at all like herself. Where is the interest, the fabulous clothes and that award-winning smile of Thandie's that we have come to know and love? Snooze fest.
