I think it's hard to look like a real woman in hollywood. They think they know how to make someone perfect but there is such a thing as too much perfection.

I am so glad that someone brought this up. Actors and actresses deal with insecurities other people have absolutely no idea about!! When I was in my twenties, it drove me to bulimia. Now that I am in my fifties, I think about plastic surgery. How sick is that? But, we have to look good, be healthy, and stay as young as possible. All the while we deal with our psyches. We seek a perfection that is impossible. In our craft, in our bodies, our dealings with other people. We need to let go. We are our most serious critics. That is the real reason that Johnny Depp doesn't look at his movies. And he is VERY successful. Take the hint. Let go. Do your best. You can't do any better. You are who you are. My husband is a sound producer. He likes to say, "You have one set of pipes, you can't change that." What he means is that I will never be a deep-voiced man...I have to use what I have. We have to realize that. And utilize that. We are the best of what we are. Be that. Make them pay for THAT!

Well I took my 1st extended walk today. 1st since returning from LA-LA Land.

OK! It was inside a mall. It hurts to admit I even went inside a Pyramid DoubleCrossers. OPPS! Did I say that out loud? emoticon

Walked from the west end near Dick's. Bought new "Water-Gear" equip.

Then to W-S for some kitchen stuff. Then to the Apple store. Nothin'. On the way back stopped at Le'Gourmet, a lap around Busted Buy, & a pit stop at Starbucks.

I really didn't need to take a rest stop at Regal, HOWEVER, as I was passing the marquee, trying to avoid peering into Johnny Rockets for an Apple and Cheddar pie, I saw a movie was showing that I had missed in LA.

DISCLAIMER TIME: This message board IS NOT intended to discuss "STICKY TOPICS", HOWEVER, Regal X-Gate is the only place in town to see "October Baby". The top of the production team Jon & Drew Erwin, and their 2nd Asst. Director Liz Nouri are all former students of mine.

Their combined eyes are exemplary. The shots come from talent far beyond anything I could have taught them.

NOW THE STICKY WHICKET.....the story line deals with a young 20-something lady who finds out not only is she adopted by the parents she believed her entire life were her natural folks, but, she was the product of a one night stand & a botched abortion.

This film is PG-13 for good cause. The story is also a good cause.

I highly recommend it, not because of my relationship with the team, for the way the writers, actors, and production team created a thought provoking, uplifting, sweet, emotional roller coaster. Leading to a single touchstone in a person's growth and enlighten.

A must go see.

One additional thing. Be sure to stay through the closing credits. It's a life imitating art shocker.

We've all been there, right? There are always those pretty, skinny girls who get leads and stuff... And make you feel bad about yourself. Especially the prima donna ones... How do you deal with this?
