Anywho, to distract myself rawthorne gave me some intriguing questions to that interview meme:
1. You are an actress given the choice of three movies: a thriller, a romantic comedy and a period drama. Which do you go for and why?
Strangely enough, I'd like to do a period drama, followed closely by a thriller. I think period dramas, when done correctly, are stunningly beautiful and quite unique. And because actors are meant to challenge themselves and go beyond their realm, I think it would be a perfect opportunity to get into such a role that I have no familiarity with. Following suit would be doing a thriller. Not those cheap teen slasher flicks though, something that's more psychological and thought-provoking, which seems to be underappreciated in the movie industry.
2. While on set, your co-star gets sweet on you, but he's also married. Do you avoid scandal or do you throw caution to the wind and enjoy yourself?
Avoiding the scandal. I'm not one for creating or advocating such ridiculous accusations that's against my personal moral code, and surely the media will blow things out of proportion anyway. I'd rather not add fuel to the fire if that is the case.
3. You get an Oscar for your performance. Do you a) send a Native American girl to refuse it for you, b) use the opportunity to thank friends and family, c) use it as a platform to state some controversial opinion or d) something else?
Even if it's become a cliché during such ceremonies, I'd definitely not only thank friends and family but also the fan community because without them I'd be absolutely nothing in the business. I also think the fans are somewhat underappreciated for many Big Name celebrities in Hollywood, so thanking them would be a lovely thing to should your appreication. For the record, I think using an awards ceremony as your own personal soapbox is in bad form. I think people do that to gain attention or create that kind of controversy, and it's not like people are going to be listening to your message anyway. There are other opportune times to address certain topics, and awards ceremonies are not one of those approproiate places.
4. Paparazzi follow you everywhere. Where are you most likely to be photographed and why?
I probably would try to avoid the paparazzi as much as possible, since I would rather keep my life outside of work private.
5. But sometimes you still think of your un-glamorous days. What or who are you missing the most?
The clean slate and less stressful of a schedule, the normal routines of everyday life, proper bedtime hours, being able to leave the house without bodyguards or someone to escourt me from here to there. I think once entering into the spotlight there are many disadvantages as there are advantages, and missing out on a normal, mundane lifestyle is one of them. I think the media overhypes the "glamorous" life of stars and trashes on them when they do something outside of that glamorous light that the public seem to forget that celebrities and stars are human beings too. They make mistakes, they will sometimes not be all glammed up whenever they leave the house, and all that. And if something does happen it can either make you or break you, so you have to be super careful what you do/say in the public ears or the reporters or the press. So yeah, I think the lack of privacy and just being a regular person without the media making blurbs on every little thing you do will definitely be missed.
But then again, there are big named celebrities or those in the limelight that tend to maintain their lives, keep their business strictly busiess and their personal lives private. I think I'd follow in that footsteps as well, manage a life that is well controlled enviornment and have people around me to keep me grounded. I know my mother will, she'll keep me cemented into that ground. Hee.
And because Supernatural is premiering its fourth season this Thursday (whee!), I've decided to do that other meme that's been going around. Just 'cause I can: When you see this, post another Supernatural quote in your LJ. Let's see how long this can go on.
Meg: Well, I’ve lied -- a lot. I’ve stolen. I’ve lusted. And the other day I met this man – a nice guy, you know? And we had a really good chat, sort of like this. Then I slit his throat and ripped his heart out through his chest. Does that make me a bad person? (EP 1.21 "Salvation")
