The paradox and pathos of movie acting, as opposed to theatre acting, is that in the theatre the actor gives; in the cinema, the actor is taken from. It’s the camera that makes the star and the director who sees through the camera.

what if “lucy” was about lucy liu casually beating up pervy white dudes instead and the story was about an asian woman who gets justice from the white men who used and abducted her. and it was an effective commentary on white imperialism, the violent commodification of asian people and asian culture by western society, the demonization of asian people, and the continuing history of violence on unwilling asian bodies especially those of asian women by white people.

what if this movie wasn’t going to be a bunch of white imperialist nonsense masquerading as something “progressive” at the expense of faceless nameless asian bodies — runnereight

In America my name is always preceded with “Oscar-winning actress.” I suppose it made a difference [in my life], but for me an Oscar is a consequence, not an aim. My aim is more hidden, more profound. As a child I would dream about uniting people across the world. If you could do that through film, can you imagine how wonderful that would be?

Oscar Issac — Hang Me, Oh Hang Me (From the Inside Llewyn Davis Motion Picture Soundtrack) 

So hang me, oh hang me, 
I’ll be dead and gone. 
Hang me, oh hang me, 
And i’ll be dead and gone. 
I wouldn’t mind the hanging, 
But the layin’ in a grave so long, poor boy, 
I been all around this world. 

If your note is part of some George Clooney prank, as I very strongly suspect it is, you A-list amateurs are going to have to step it the f- up. We are not some easily confused starlets here. We are grown-ass, professional comedians. Please accept this fruit as a token of our sincerity. Best wishes, Elizabeth Tina Fey, Amy ‘Boston’ Poehler.
