    Default Apparently Jane Austen was a FLIRT! And liked the company of MEN! *gasp*

    Ladies, are we really still that mystified by Jane Austen and how she *really* was. Olivia Williams will be playing the famous female author in a new movie, which examines Jane Austen's life, as no one really knows what she was like as she was never interviewed, never wrote a memoir, and her sister burned all of their letters to each other. (The Daily Mail says this was in effort to "probably to spare the feelings of relatives and acquaintances who were the target of Jane's barbs".) Gwyneth Hughes, the author of the script for the new Jane Austen films says,
    "People who think of Jane Austen as a little country mouse who was reserved around men will be shocked. She really liked witty repartee and she was very comfortable in male company. The flirting is clear from her letters, especially where she says tartly: 'I never married because I never met anyone worth giving up flirting for."
    I don't know about you, but I'm already shocked. JUST SHOCKED that she was a FLIRT!
    [via The Daily Mail]
