Lady Crushes: I Have Them

30 Aug

I love Jenna Marbles. I don’t watch her on a regular basis and I certainly haven’t seen all of her videos, but what I have seen I absolutely love. Recently I watched her video entitled “Girl Crushes” where she spoke on how every girl has a girl crush on another lady. Girl crushes are pretty much when a girl feels an encompassing amount of emotion for another girl. Girls generally adore said other girl and possibly want to be them as well.

I certainly have an abundance of girl crushes. While there are many women I look up to in the media (Tina Fey, Meryl Streep, Patricia Clarkson, Viola Davis, to name a few) most of them don’t necessarily fall under the category of “girl crush”. They’re more under the “be my mentor” or “I hope I grow up to be like you” or “adopt me ASAP” categories.

Anyway, here are my top five girl crushes.

5. Emma Watson

It’s funny how, while I was a fan of Emma during the filming of the Harry Potter series, my love for her didn’t really start until after the Potter movies were wrapped up. First off, she went and got that sassy haircut, and recently she’s taken on a ton of interviews which have shown off the type of person she’s grown up to be nicely. She’s intelligent, funny, whimsical, and true to herself. She’s spoken in the past about what it means to be a woman, her sense of style, and her general outlook on life. In short, I just think she’s a wonderful human. Not to mention she’s playing Sam in Perks of Being a Wallflower, which puts a smile on my face.

4. Anne Hathaway

Who doesn’t love Anne Hathaway? This lady is elegant, posed, graceful, and beyond beautiful, while still managing to be witty, funny, intelligent, silly, and humble. Basically, she’s everything a woman should be. She’s shown her acting range in full over the years, from Princess Mia to Catwoman, Devil Wears Prada to Rachel at the Wedding. Not to mention Anne motherfucking Hathaway is an excellent human being. She won the Human Rights Award back in 2008, and in a recent interview when an interviewer chose to question Ms. Hathaway about her workout regiment instead of her work as an actress (as interviewers unfortunately choose to do with actresses nowadays) she smoothly deflected it like the ninja that she is. Plus she’s going to be playing Fantine in Les Miserables this December, which I can only assume is going to be amazing to watch.

3. Mae Whitman

I’m not really sure when Mae Whitman came on my radar. I think it may have been when she first started up on Parethood, and suddenly I was finding her everywhere. Mae’s a hilarious human, which can be seen in the majority of roles she’s played over the years (especially as Ann in Arrested Development). She too is going to be in the upcoming Perks of Being a Wallflower film, which sets me all a flutter. She’s also a great singer, which I didn’t know until her character shared her musical abilities on Parenthood. I have high hopes for this girl’s future acting career, namely so I can go see everything she’s in and crush even more on her.

2. Jennifer Lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence and I have a very defining quality that ties us closely together: we both love food. It seems whenever this lovely lady gets interviewed she goes on and on about her love of food, which I understand all too well. Top that with not being afraid of making some really silly faces – not to mention a kick ass sense of humor – and bam. Lady crush. I actually haven’t seen too many of her films, but I hope that changes in the future.

1. Emma Stone

Not gonna lie, I am ridiculously in love with Emma Stone. She’s the only girl on my list of actual celebrity crushes I’d love to date. If she kicked down my front door right now, told me she left Andrew Garfield, and wanted to run away with me, I would do just that in a heart beat. I’d seen Emma in a lot of things in the past, but she didn’t really catch my eye until Easy A, and it’s been uphill from there. This girl is quirky, gorgeous, and hilarious. Not to mention she seems so confident and comfortable in her own skin. Of course, I’m sure she has absolutely no intention of leaving her Garfield anytime soon, but in my heart of hearts she will always be my one true Lady Love.

Words from Others

10 Mar

I’m feeling a tad lazy today, so here are some of my all time favorite quotes… and by “some” I mean “a lot”. These are all quotes from movies/plays/TV/books/etc. I do have a lot of quotes from people in my life, and maybe I’ll share those someday, but for now I’m just gonna share these ones.

Enjoy!

“[Muppets] are just such a force for good, and I know that’s crazy to hear me talk about it, but I’m in love with them. They remind us of the best version of ourselves. They’re who we wanted to be when we were kids.”
— Jason Segel

“Well this is a place that you, that you all made together so that you could find one another. The most important part of your life was the time that you spent with these people. That’s why all of you are here. Nobody does it alone, Jack. You needed all of them and they needed you. To remember. And let go.”
— Christian Shepard, LOST

“I’m a person who relies very heavily on intuition and feeling out the situation, so I’ve never really made a five-year plan or anything like that, if it’s right, it will fall into place and if not, I understand.”
— Emma Stone

“Today I felt completely awake, like my heart was as big as the moon.”
— Ray, Bored to Death

“Doubt thou the stars are fire, doubt that the sun doth move, doubt truth to be a liar, but never doubt I love.”
— Hamlet

“Maybe you don’t need the whole world to love you, you know, maybe you just need one person.”
— Kermit, The Muppets

“Yeah, well, I’ve got a dream too. But it’s about singing and dancing and making people happy. That’s the kind of dream that gets better the more people you share it with.”
— Kermit the Frog, The Muppet Movie

“They don’t even know they’re doing the same thing as everyone else, just using a different name. Entertaining themselves. Missing it. Lying. None of them care about pole vaulting or dreams.”
Visioneers

“Generally, by the time you are Real, most of your hair has been loved off, and your eyes drop out and you get loose in the joints and very shabby. But these things don’t matter at all, because once you are Real you can’t be ugly, except to people who don’t understand […] once you are Real you can’t become unreal again. It lasts for always.”
The Velveteen Rabbit

“The most important things are the hardest things to say. They are the things you get ashamed of, because words diminish them – words shrink things that seemed limitless when they were in your head to no more than living size when they’re brought out. But it’s more than that, isn’t it? The most important things lie to close to wherever your secret heart is buried, like landmarks to a treasure your enemies would love to steal away. And you may make revelations that cost you dearly only to have people look at you in a funny way, not understanding what you’ve said at all, or why you thought it was so important that you almost cried while you were saying it. That’s the worst, I think. When the secret stays locked within not for want of a teller but for want of an understanding ear.”
— Stephen King

“I want to be Proust or the Marquis de Sade. I would like to be Christ, Mohammad, Buddha, but not have to believe in God.”
— Guido, Nine

“Bottom line is, even if you see them coming, you’re not ready for the big moments. No one asks for their life to change, not really. But it does. So, what are we, helpless? Puppets? Nah. The big moments are gonna come, you can’t help that. It’s what you do afterwords that counts. That’s when you find out who you are.”
— Whistler, Buffy the Vampire Slayer

“I live for the day when an actor can walk on stage, stand stock still and have an audience applaud in sheer wonder that – in spite of plague, politics and the foolishness of this age – this thing has managed to stay alive.”
— Shag, Equivocation

“If you’re not scared you’re not taking a chance, and if you’re not taking a chance then what the hell are you doing?”
— Ted, How I Met Your Mother

“I can’t control my destiny. I trust my soul, my only goal is just to be. There’s only now, there’s only here. Give in to love or live in fear. No other path, no other way. No day but today.”
RENT

“Family is more than blood. It’s about trust, about love, about those who embrace you – the real you – unconditionally.”
— Samuel, Heroes

“I mean Hank, the movie was great, but the thirty minutes before the movie started was what I love about being a nerd. Because nerds like us are allowed to be unironically enthusiastic about stuff. We don’t have to be like, ‘Oh yeah that purse is okay’ or like, ‘Yeah, I like that band’s early stuff.’ Nerds are allowed to love stuff, like jump-up-and-down-in-the-chair-can’t-control-yourself-love it. Hank, when people call people nerds, mostly what they are saying is, ‘You like stuff’, which is just not a good insult at all, like ‘You are too enthusiastic about the miracle of human consciousness’.”
— John Green

— Guildenstern; Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead

“But the thing is … but what I wanted to say is, you know when you’re a kid, they tell you it’s all “Grow up, get a job, get married, get a house, have a kid” and that’s it. Nah. The truth is the world is so much stranger than that, it’s so much darker. And so much madder. And so much better.”
— Elliot, Doctor Who

“The Venn Diagram of guys who don’t like smart girls and guys you don’t want to date is a circle.”
— John Green

“If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world.”

“The funny thing about writing is that whether you’re doing it well or you’re doing it poorly, it looks the exact same. That is actually one of the main ways that writing is different from ballet dancing.”

“The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It’s the caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows & the beauty of a woman only grows with passing years.”
— Audrey Hepburn

“I fell in love the way you fall asleep: slowly, and then all at once.”

“Had my brother really seen me somehow, or was he merely a little boy telling beautiful lies?”

“I wanted so badly to lie down next to her on the couch, to wrap my arms around her and sleep. Not fuck, like in those movies. Not even have sex. Just sleep together, in the most innocent sense of the phrase. But I lacked the courage and she had a boyfriend and I was gawky and she was gorgeous and I was hopelessly boring and she was endlessly fascinating. So I walked back to my room and collapsed on the bottom bunk, thinking that if people were rain, I was drizzle and she was a hurricane.”
— John Green, Looking for Alaska

“No, no, no…you’ve got it all wrong… you can’t act death. The fact of it is nothing to do with seeing it happen – it’s not gasps and blood and falling about – that isn’t what makes it death. It’s just a man failing to reappear, that’s all – now you see him, now you don’t, that’s the only thing that’s real: here one minute and gone the next and never coming back – an exit, unobtrusive and unannounced, a disappearance gathering weight as it goes on, until, finally, it is heavy with death.”
— Guildenstern; Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead

“Hearts will never be made practical until they can be made unbreakable.”
The Wizard of OZ
