The Silence of the lambs outtakes
It’s true I don’t tolerate fools but then they don’t tolerate me, so I am spiky. Maybe that’s why I’m quite good at playing spiky elderly ladies.
Murdered Royal Children in History
- Edward V of England: murdered by smothering in 1483 at the age of 12-13, along with his brother. Responsibility for their deaths is widely attributed to Richard III.
- Louis XVII of France: neglected and starved to death by his captors after the French Revolution. He was only ten.
- Richard of Shrewsbury, Duke of York: murdered by smothering in 1483, the younger brother of Edward V. He was only 9-10 years old.
- Grand Duchess Olga Nikolaevna of Russia: murdered by the Bolsheviks on 17 July 1918, along with her siblings. Their crimes? Just for being a Romanov. Aged 22.
- Grand Duchess Tatiana Nikolaevna of Russia: murdered by the Bolsheviks in the early morning of 17 July 1918. She was just 21.
- Grand Duchess Maria Nikolaevna of Russia: murdered by the Bolsheviks along with her family. She turned 19 a mere three weeks before being murdered.
- Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna of Russia: murdered by the Bolsheviks on 17 July 1918. She turned 17 just the month before.
- Nicholas Knatchbull: descendant of British Royalty, most notably Queen Victoria. Nicholas was killed by the 1979 IRA bombing that also killed his royal grandfather, a friend, and another relative. He was 14.
- Tsarevich Alexei Nikolaevich of Russia: murdered by the Bolsheviks. He was less than a month shy of turning 14.
Those who live in a world where ‘only women wear make up’ must live an awfully dreary existence.
I just showed this to my son (10) and my daughter (6) and they both said “cool!”
Being an actress during the Golden Age of Hollywood was not as glamorous or ideal as it seems when taking these women’s lives at face value. Sexual harassment, underpay, and overwork were the norm. Many started out in the chorus and worked their way to stardom. Some only reached that elusive fame after dozens of films, hundreds of failures. Many had to overcome the hardship and heartache broken homes, war-torn countries, or extreme poverty to become the beautiful faces onscreen that millions came to adore and idolize.
Some survived the Hollywood game, while others were used, abused, and thrown out. Some led happy lives, others didn’t. But the legacy they left on the screen has had and will continue to have an impact on the masses long after they are no longer present among us. These women created new worlds through the medium of film - their movies have provided a much desired escape for generations upon generations.
They make us smile when all we want to do is cry, they give us new perspectives on life, they inspire us to dream bigger, try harder, make a difference.
I am sad to see so many great actresses relatively forgotten, but what makes me sick is the way that so many of them are remembered: Marilyn as a slut, Katharine a bitch, Joan a monster, Audrey just a pretty face—many of these women defined by a single attribute (true or false) or single moment (real or fabricated) of their lives. None of them were perfect, everyone knows that. None of them were perfect because all of them were human. It takes a lot to be a star, yet all of them handled stardom, with all of its ups and all of its downs, with far more grace than the average human being. There’s already so much hate in this world, and I may just be speaking for myself, but these ladies have done nothing except make my life a happier existence. I love them, and I think they should, at the very least, be given the respect they deserve. Because they do deserve it. And then some.

One good thing about this movie: he could have said “no, shooting arrows is not for little girls” but instead he said “no, shooting with that big bow is not for little girls. use this small one.” i think that’s fantastic.
