If you got a movie deal about your life based on your blog. Who would be the leading lady and why?
I think you’re going to be shocked by my answer, but I’m going to say Judi Dench.
What?! I hear you shout, I thought you were all about showing the world that we’re not old ladies?!?
Listen, we’re making a movie not a documentary. We’re dealing with Hollywood. You know, the guys (I use the term advisedly) who think it’s perfectly acceptable for an ancient man to woo twenty-somethings. Think Harrison Ford (55 at the time) and Anne Heche (29) in Six Days Seven Nights. (If you want more examples, go here).
Women practically disappear from the screen when they reach a certain age.
If you’re not sure what I mean, you should watch this. You should watch it even if you do know what I mean. It’s NSFW, but it is hilarious.
We already can’t convince the media that there are young(ish) people who stitch, how on earth can we go up against Hollywood and win? So I figure, let’s get Judi Dench. She’s good. And she stitches. She even stitches the word “cunt.”
In a perfect world, it’d be Janeane Garofalo, right?
