    If this has been covered before (or if I am incorrect in my assumption/conclusion), I apologize.

    How did Annette Bening get to be the model for the Columbia/Tri-Star Pictures "torch-bearer" logo?

    She's not.

    Although, I believe they did stick her head on the Columbia logo for "What Planet Are You From?" as a joke...

    I think Rob Reiner mentions it in the Stand By Me commentary too and/or maybe Ghostbusters has a similar mention.
    It being at the beginning I could easily check but I can't be arsed![​IMG]

    They also mention it on the Whatever It Takes DVD commentary. The director then goes on to mention his goal was to have a black lady hold the tourch just for Whatever It Takes (but nothing ever came of that). [​IMG]
