This may be the weirdest article I have ever written but it has been bugging and eating away at me for years and I just can' t take it no more! In nearly every movie scene that depicts people eating they seem to jab at their food and then shove it into their mouths at the fastest possible speed and I am not talking about fast chewing but the speed they get it to their mouths. This also applies to TV shows like when Anthony Bourdain, the Man vs Food guy and Andrew Zimmern are eating. Do you notice how fast they move the food from the plates to their mouths? I have seen it in the Godfather also. Maybe I am just not very observant in real life but I don't recall seeing anyone eating like this.
It bugs me because it looks like bad table manners but my question is has anyone else noticed this and is this some Hollywood/TV technique that they teach actors? My mother would slap me silly, god rest her soul, if I ate like this.
As always all comments are welcome, all 2 or 3 of them.
