it does a celebrities a huge disservice when they talk too much.
lit often turns the gp off and labels them as “the big mouth”.
i’m looking at you too.
there is nothing wrong with looking cute on the red carpet,
taking selfies of your avocado bagel,
and leaving all thoughts/opinions for the kitchen table.
alexandra shipp could stand to learn a thing or two.
she is still in her feels over everyone hating her as “storm” in the x men.
she took to “glamour” to share more of her thoughts.
this is a quote of what she had to say…
“[I tweeted back] at people who criticized me for not having dark enough skin for my role in X-Men because we’re not going to have this conversation about a cartoon character. You’re not going to tell me that my skin color doesn’t match a Crayola from 1970. Growing up, when I was reading the comics, I pictured her looking like me. For any black girl, for there to be a black superhero, we picture them looking like us. So when I auditioned for the role, I wasn’t like, “Oh man, I’m not dark enough.” I was like, “Finally, this is my moment.” I’m not playing Harriet Tubman with a prosthetic nose and darkening my skin tone. I would never do that.”
WTF is she even talking about?
so she does realize storm was drawn a certain way,
we’re not talking about when she went outside to play with her friends before the street lights came on.
we didn’t use our imaginations of what the x-men looked like.
we’re talking about a character who looks like this:
and not this:
she imagined “aaliyah” looked like her too?
remember she “looked like her” to play her in a lifetime biopic:
who i blame aunt wendy for filth.
she should have known an entire legion of better.
so just like she wasn’t a good “aaliyah”,
alexandra simply isn’t a good “storm”.
she doesn’t look the part and her acting is mediocre at best.
her defending it doesn’t help because it adds to her un-likability.
her lane is much better suited for “tragedy girls” and “love, simon”.
who are her people?
they need to snatch that phone and tape her mouth closed.
lowkey: she also added this…
“I get pushback for things I say on social media, mostly on Twitter, but I hope to never censor the things that come out of my mouth. Male actors have always been able to be way more opinionated when it comes to politics. As actresses, we only get to do things like help the hungry children. Take Angelina Jolie. She’s political in her actions, but you don’t know her opinion on Trump. I think people should speak their truth. I don’t give a fuck. I’m me. I’m exactly who I want to be every single day. I know it might be my demise—I’ll check back in with you in a couple years and see how it’s working out—but I’m my own artist, and you can’t be a great artist without having a huge opinion.”
can someone tell this civilian to stand down,
