belversion of the interview meme: answers 8-11 (theme: Angelina!)


(from this meme)

8. (from blood_4_deniro) if you could have a nice sit-down dinner with anyone in the world, from any time period, living, dead, or imaginary, famous, infamous, or someone from your own personal life, who would it be, and why.
Angelina Jolie. She's still the most open, honest, compassionate, open-minded person I have ever learned about. I've read so many quotes and interviews by her... she blows my mind. She donates a THIRD of her income from acting. a THIRD!!! Yes, she can afford it, but so can many other people in hell-ywood and do you see them doing it? And she's so beautifully unafraid. She follows her heart no matter what. People say shit about her adopting from various places in the world, but having a multicultural family is something important to her so she does it anyway. And she's bisexual and has never tried to hide it. And she loves tattoos so she gets ones that are meaningful to her, no matter that it is looked at as 'trashy' by many people. And added to all that, there is just something about her. Watching video interviews makes my heart beat fast, there is something unexplainable that inspires me almost as much as her words and actions. I know if I met her I'd cry my fuckin' eyes out. I can only hope that if I had a dinner with her I'd manage to get hold of myself in time to talk with her before it was over.

Also, every now and then I dream about her ♥ That means a lot to me because I believe that people's spirits can visit others in dreams. That doesn't mean that someone's always visiting me when I dream about them, but sometimes it does. When I wake up feeling changed, I know it was more than a dream.

9. (from bluebl00d) If you had the ability to read people's minds, who would be your first victim? And why?
probably Angelina, so I could see if she ever dreams about ME. I wouldn't want to read the mind of anyone I currently have a relationship with because I'd feel I was missing out on the learning process of communication. ;-)

10. (from bluebl00d) If you could cast a spell, and it resulted in a positive outcome what kind spell would it be?
hmmm. a spell to make all people radiate a force field that burned when threatened with rape/molestation, especially children. A bit of a downer since it isn't possible, but oh how incredibly free and happy I would be if that were the case.

11. (from blood_4_deniro) when growing up, who were your heroes (ie, superman, a family member, someone from history, etc) and why did you look up to them/how did it help you to have this/these person(s) as your hero.
I didn't have any hero or role model except God. I didn't want to be like any of the adults I knew -- I didn't admire any of them. I think that was both sad and freeing, because I felt like there weren't any inspiring adults in the world, but I also didn't try to make myself be like anyone but me. I don't think I found a role model until I was about 17, and that was Jennifer Knapp. Sadly there wasn't much info on her, so she was only a vague role model. My first REAL role model I learned of at 19, and she was Angelina. She inspired me to become more honest and open. She taught me more about God/dess than all of my pastors combined, I believe.

actually, your friend had it backwards -- she mentioned that she was worried she wouldn't love her bio-child as much as the others -- but that after Shiloh was born she knew she loved her as much.

*actually, I remembered more -- she said she was afraid she wouldn't be able to connect with Shiloh as much because she was born into such privilege (rich, beautiful, famous, white, blonde & blue-eyed) whereas her other children had already been through so much.

I've not read in depth about Angelina Jolie myself. Interestingly I have picked up a lot of what you've read about her, just from her body language. I can tell she is an awesome and compassionate person too for all of the reasons you mentioned.

I've been reading all of Charles de Lint's Newford books and stories, and throughout all of them is a strong recurring theme of childhood abuse and trauma, especially sexual. Nearly all the female characters were raped as children, and many male characters were beaten and sometimes raped as children. Sometimes I wonder how I can get through them all without breaking.
I just finished reading a story called "Bird Bones And Wood Ash" in the collection The Ivory and the Horn. It's about a young woman who was abused by alcoholic parents, came out as a lesbian, suffered abuse and trauma, and then lost her lover to cancer. She was visited by animal spirits who gave her special gifts. She became a vigilante against child molesters, reaching into their minds and destroying those things that made the men monsters -- men who raped their own daughters, beat their wives, destroyed lives. I recommend it. In fact, I recommend all the de Lint books about Newford and especially about the character Jilly Coppercorn, who suffered unimaginable childhood abuse and out of it she became strong and powerful and one of the best-loved characters in the stories.
