Chapter 26 Hollywood and Celebrity Heartthrobs.
David: Are there any actors or actresses that you like? Who are your favorite movie stars?
You: Yes, I’ve got a few favorites: Tom Hanks ,Tom Cruise, and Ben Affleck. I like them very much.
我喜欢好多明星。如：汤姆 · 汉克斯，汤姆 · 克鲁斯，本 · 阿福来克等。
David: Those guys are known as heartthrobs.
You: What does that mean?
David: Heartthrobs are men who make the heart of women throb.
You: Oh, I see. They are quite handsome and attractive.
David: Many American movies center around these movie stars. Do you have any thoughts about these kinds of American movies?
You: I think these American movies do not reflect real life. They may be inventive or well-produced, and they may have famous stars and handsome actors, but the stories are so far from reality that they are not instructive or meaningful.
David: So maybe these movies are more about the action, but there’s no moral to the story.
You ：Exactly! I couldn’t have put it better myself!
