More Than Words: Tomboys R Us
THIS whenever some girl brags about being “one of the boys” or says something like “I’m not like other girls, I LOVE [stereotypically masculine thing].” (via giraffodill)
There’s a paradox in thinking that you’re better than other girls, when your whole reason for feeling that way is because you think your gender is so inherently inferior that you want to dis-identify with being a girl altogether.
|Peter:||The elite of our time are completely visible, you can read in the tabloids about them. The lifestyle, the glamour, the cult of celebrity - which is advertised everywhere. Basically, it means that you can be free, you can be happy - if you're rich and beautiful. That is the evil of our society. It has nothing to do with whether someone is intelligent or has a big heart and a soul. If you have money and high cheekbones, you're worth something...It makes me sick. I deal with it. I try to bring collapse from the inside.|
|Interviewer:||You are sometimes in the tabloids too...|
|Peter:||I'm not in the tabloids. I live in Paris.|
|Interviewer:||You are beautiful...|
|Peter:||Oh! [Jumps up] Oooh! [Hugs and kisses the interviewer] You think I'm beautiful, but if you made a list with all my physical attributes, you would realize that that is not true. See here before you, my teeth are fucked up. I have bad skin. My head is full of gray hair. I am not beautiful.|

"I’ve played roles where my character has to be quite charming and I’ve found it quite easy to do. I think some of it is in my bones but some of it is more deliberate. I remember that it was never that difficult for me to get a director to look up and pay attention to me. Mind you, I don’t know if that’s necessarily charm."
