Claire Danes :’ este ok sa vrei sa fii atractiva’

Claire Danes

Claire Danes :’ este ok sa vrei sa fii atractiva’. Aceasta precizare banala o spune Claire in interviul ei din revista Allure. Multitudinea de aparitii si interviuri nu este intamplatoare. Cand incepe sezonul de seriale (si acum a inceput sezonul de toamna-iarna), si in preajma Oscarurilor sau avanpremiere de filme, vedetele sint oarecum fortate sa faca marketing-ul de rigoare.

Claire promoveaza serialul Homeland al carui sezon 5 a inceput in Octombrie. Am urmarit si eu primele doua sezoane dar mi-am pierdut interesul pentru acest serial. Unul dintre motivele pentru care nu mai urmaresc serialul este actorul Damian Lewis, care pur si simplu nu-mi place. Am scris AICI de ce.

Restul interviului:

Her now-infamous cry-face: “I’m very vain about my performance. I want to give as honest a performance as I can. But I’m not so worried about being regarded as beautiful when I’m playing a character. I have plenty of vanity in my life. I want to look pretty in the world. But I can be this bottomless pit. I know some of the most beautiful women on the planet — unequivocally, objectively friggin’ gorgeous — and they are rife with insecurity and self doubt, and you just think, ‘Well how can that be?’ I’m attractive enough. I can do the work I want to do. I’ve found a wonderful man who wants to make out with me. I’m good.”

Makeup rules: “It’s either eyes or lips. It’s like legs or boobs: You shouldn’t do both. That’s always the first question when you sit down to get ready for the night.”

Bodyshaming, body criticism: “It’s just so ingrained in us, the idea that we should take up the right amount of space, literally and figuratively. I’ve wrestled with this my whole life, as just a person in the world and as somebody who makes images. It’s OK to want to look and feel your best. It’s OK to work at being attractive, whatever that means to you. And it’s also OK to not expect to be defined by that. It’s OK to be powerful in every way: to be big, to take up space. To breathe and thrive.”

Her younger self: “I didn’t have many opportunities to chill and waste time. I was working all the time, and I was getting a little cuckoo… I do feel like I’ve gotten younger as I’ve aged. It’s a very young mistake to assume that life is very serious. I get the joke now.”

She gives her son manicures: “I got swag from a pre-Emmy party, and it was a bunch of Essie nail polishes. Cyrus discovered them, so then I started trying to paint Cyrus’s nails… and it was really hard. They’re really small nails. But I suddenly had a new, deep respect for manicurists.”

Chiar daca Claire spune niste banalitati, este sint binevenite. Siguranta de sine este una dintre cele mai importante trasaturi din care isi trage seva veselia si bunatatea din oameni.

Una dintre teoriile mele (care nu este sustinuta de studii clinice 🙂 ), este ca, intr-un procent destul de mare, femeile frumoase sint mai sigure pe ele si implicit mai intelegatoare si mai volubile.
