Geoffrey Rush was once quoted as saying viewers look at the big screen (or TV screen) from left to right, the same way as we read a book, which is why he had Jack the monkey on his left shoulder in Pirate of the Caribbean and tries to stand at the right of his co-stars. Well, now that Geoffrey mentions it, we find it to be true. We do look from left to right while watching a movie. We do spot Geoffrey first and find our eyes wandering back to him. How clever Geoffrey is to come to that conclusion and use it to his advantage. He even requested that when sharing the screen with his “more attractive” cast members, he be standing on the left as much as possible, especially when it was Kiera Knightly. As if he needs an advantage. How could you miss him in a scene? He's steals it every time!
