Favorite Stars

Ivete:  Who's your favorit actor, Elisa?
Elisa: Hmm. That's a difficult question, but I guess the best actor for me is Robin Williams.
Ivete:  That ugly guy! I like Richard Gere, he's so handsome.
Elisa: But Robin Williams is so funny, that's why I like him.
Ivete:  Yeah, he's really short too. I like tall men.
Elisa: Gere isn't tall.
Ivete:  No, but he's so romantic and he's got a big smile.
