ROCK OF ASIAN: Paper Heart Soundtrack

August 5th, 2009 | 0 comments | Posted by Jen

Michael Cera has reportedly dumped Charlyne Yi after three years of dating, one week before the premiere of her movie, Paper Heart, in which Charlyne tries to figure out what true love is and ends up falling for Cera.

How inconvenient.

Or is it convenient? The timing is awfully suspicious. Also, given the fact that Paper Heart lives in meta-land–not exactly documentary, not totally fiction–doesn’t news of their break-up seem designed to pique people’s interest in the film? I don’t even buy that the two were going out in the first place. The first time I heard about them as a couple was when I heard about the movie. The scenes in the movie trailer where they’re together, supposedly falling for one another, seem completely acted and ooze that horribly platonic “just friends” vibe. And Charlyne, comedic talents notwithstanding, has about as much sex appeal as an eggplant. Isn’t that why she was cast as Baby in that Dirty Dancing reenactment with Channing Tatum, because the combination of her unsexy awkwardness and his over-the-top porn steez made the scene awesomely funny? Maybe I’m an awful person. But Charlyne Yi, eggplant. There, I said it.

One thing I would buy is the Paper Heart soundtrack, which was released Tuesday. Much of it was scored by Michael Cera and Charlyne Yi, and it’s predictably sweet, lo-fi, and indie. The perfect soundtrack for people trying to figure out what true love is (listen here).

Yeah, right.
