A Rose with Starry Eyes











{April 19, 2010}   Selma Blair

“I’m the first to say I have no apologies if I get thin. Yeah, maybe sometimes I’m stressed and don’t have much room for the bad doughnuts I like to eat, but unfortunately I’m probably at my healthiest when I’m my thinnest.”

“I really binged on food in Budapest. It was so cold and we were shooting nights. The director says that in one half of the film I look boney and in the other half like a puffer fish. It’s the most unprofessional thing I have ever done on a movie. So I gained 20 pounds and now I have to work out – and diet!”

{February 14, 2010}   who is ana to me?

For me, it used be Kiera Knightley. she was SO gorgeous, especially after Pirates of the Caribean: Dead man’s Chest. The most exquisite bone structure, the best career, and such admirable self-control. (She claims to be naturally slim, but there are laineygossip rumors about her “indulgences” (meaning cocaine) and possible bulimia (because her jaw sticks out rather a lot, which according to doctors can be a sign of regular, forced vomiting.)

For a while I considered Lily Allen, who is obviously dealing with BDD and crash-dieting as well as cocaine usage (parallels to adderall), but she’s kind of an ass and never makes any REAL progress.

Now my image of ana is me but thinner, with insanely concave cheekbones, collarbones that jut out a little bit, lean non-chubbsy legs, a tiny waist, etc. The way I’d love to look on camera.



{February 13, 2010}   quote of the day

“I still battle with my deeply boring diet of, essentially, yogurt and breakfast cereal and granola bars. I hate dieting. I hate having to do it to be the ‘right’ size. I’m hungry all the time. I think I’m a slender person, but the industry apparently doesn’t. All actresses are hungry all the time, I think.”

~Julianne Moore

{February 12, 2010}   MY FIRST THEATRE AUDITION!!!

OK, so I went to the audition anyways. There were 2 segments to it: dancing and singing. The man said that if they like me enough I’ll get a callback to come in and read the script… I didn’t see everyone sing but I think I saw, maybe a little less than half the singers. The horrible thing was that the pianist SUCKED and literally played random sour notes that were at least an octave or two above my voice. According to mom, who was sitting in the back row, she could hear me quite well, which wasn’t the case for a lot of other singers! I got really nervous and a little bit scattered – the auditorium was huge – but in her opinion I was one of the top 25% singers. (There were some people who really sucked, though!)

I don’t know how many people they contact for callbacks, but I maybe have a shot….? Maybe. I’m on the lower end of the callback spectrum, though. I think my dancing was okay, I hope – there were some people who were kind of older/uncoordinated. I hope I at LEAST beat them!

I think I have at least a shot at a part in the chorus… Or maybe the part of Bet? She’s supposed to be about 16 and she’s an alto, too. Or maybe it’s just wishful thinking on my part….

I prayed to Expedite to get me the part of Nancy within a week – no delivery, no reward for the saint. I also wore the Crown of Success and Look Me Over, praying over both of them.
