The current issue of OK! magazine has another article about Alexander Technique, this one focused on the A-list celebraties who use it. Madonna, Hilary Swank, Hugh Jackman, Richard Gere, Joanna Lumley, Sir Paul McCartney, William Hurt, Pierce Brosnan, Sting, Julia Sawalha, Jamie Lee Curtis, Jennifer Saunders, Ruby Wax, John Cleese, Robin Williams… the list goes on and on.
In the Season 1 finale of “Girls”, Hannah’s gay ex-boyfriend Elijah appears with his new rich boyfriend. Hannah tells her current boyfriend Adam that Elijah is about to be “certified in the Alexander Technique”! Is this the first pop culture reference to the Alexander Technique? More to the point, is it the gayest thing you’ve ever heard?
Update: I’ve been informed that there was an earlier reference in an episode of “Ugly Betty”. If I find a clip of that, I’ll post it.
