“When I get lonely these days, I think: So BE lonely. Learn your way around loneliness. Make a map of it. Sit with it, for once in your life. Welcome to the human experience. But never again use another person’s body or emotions as a scratching post for your own unfulfilled yearnings.”—
my favorite comment in a thread about the sarah lane/natalie portman “controversy” :
I was just wondering if any other Oscar winners may have had similar issues? Did Hillary Swank have any body doubles or stand ins for any of the boxing scenes in Million Dollar Baby or did she do it all herself? Robert DeNiro in Raging Bull? If someone did stand in for them, did they thank them when they won their oscars? I really don’t know, I’m asking? Natalie Portman won an Oscar for her ACTING! It was not a best dancer award. I was convinced she was crazy! Great job Natalie and sorry for the contrived controversy and failed attempt to give this girl her 15 minutes (which she’s completely, you know, not, you know, taking advantage of, you know!!!)Let it go EW – please.
