I went to an all girls school.I played Shylock and recited his monologues night after night during 'The Merchant Of Venice' run.I'd like to think
that makes me qualified to talk about this subject with some authority,.....but it doesn't.
Being able to recite Shakespeare doesn't mean anything other than that you're good at commiting large amounts of text to memory and can deliver the
text with the correct conveyance of emotion etc.
Madonna and Angelina Jolie adopting 'less fortunate' children is comendable sure,but.....the fact that Emma Thompson adopted out of her race and
culture and offered a child a damn fine start to one 'less fortunate'speaks volumes more so than the likes of Brangelina and Madonna doing the same
for one reason:
I NEVER HEARD ABOUT IT UNTIL LAST WEEK!
No publicity really.
She never really was the carcass that the vultures feast upon i guess but,.....did you know?
Did you know she'd done the same adoption thing....with a TEENAGER!(*mocks an aghast expression because she has a teenager and knows what that
Probably not.We only really hear about the BIG names,the tabloid fodder,the paper sellers.
I respect Angelinas philosophies,i feel she is a genuine woman.Her love for her family shines from her face.Her feelings for those she meets on her
travels as an ambassador shine through too.
Infact,i've come to the conclusion that she is either a crap actress and can't hide her feelings or,she is one of the most talented actresses of her
time and has us all fooled.
Or,this woman is for real.
I know what i 'want' to believe.
(I don't get the same vibe off of Maddie however)
I detest the workings of Hollywood and it's close relationship with the media.The media will make you or break you,they have an agenda,they have
papers to sell.Who knows which stars are on their books so to speak.
If Joaquin has opted out of the limelight,my question would be:'Why?Why do something with your life that will keep you in the media and publics
That just seems strange to me,it makes no sense for a hermetic,shy soul to take centre stage!
Having said that i haven't listened to his lyrics,i haven't heard his message.
Will have to look into that before i draw anymore conclusions!
I agree though.They're not all bad eggs.You just have to sift the chaff from the wheat,some are doing good things minus media attention!
Some are just too 'big' to make any choices in life without a paparazzi frenzy i guess.
I suppose this could be deemed 'suffering for your art'.......
