SO MUCH LADY LOVE
I LOVE GISELLE YOU GUYS
No, but what gets me in this movie
is that every woman is beautiful to Giselle.
Women who wear suits and aren’t cute and petite. Women with wide hips and large rear ends and small breasts. Women who are black and white and every other ethnicity she came across, I’m sure. Women with straight hair and natural hair and grey hair. Older women and middle-aged women and young women.
Everyone is beautiful to Giselle. There’s no reason anyone wouldn’t be beautiful. There’s no reason beauty should ever be just one thing, that being a princess should ever be just one thing.
Everyone is a princess to Giselle, and if one of the princesses politely corrected her and said they were a prince she’d probably nod earnestly and talk about how dashing and handsome they looked too.
“What I will say is that what I have learned for myself is that I don’t have to be anybody else; and that myself is good enough; and that when I am being true to that self, then I can avail myself to extraordinary things…You have to allow for the impossible to be possible.”
"My parents never pushed me or my brother into anything. We’re a very close-knit family. Their idea of parenting was if we showed interest in something they would provide us with everything we needed to follow that interest. I used to like taking photographs, so they’d buy me a camera, and they’d send me to photography courses. I always liked writing, so my mum would give me books on writing. When it came to acting it was, OK, you like doing this as an extracurricular activity, let’s send you to London. You can do National Youth Theater, do these drama courses. They shot themselves in the foot with that one because I ended up following that.
Luckily, it’s paid off so far.” (x)
