If you could be a character from any movie, not the actor/actress but the character, who would it be and which movie would it be from?
This is a toughy. I LOVE movies! We easily own over 100 DVDs... Well, I guess my top 3 would be:
1. Sandra "Templeton" Bloom from Big Fish. Her husband loved her and did everything he could to win her over. Their love was so incredibly strong and they understood each other on a level that most people cannot even fathom having with another human being. Her love for him was so real, she appreciated his stories and the way he saw things. She didn't look at him as someone who told tales, but as someone who had lived an inspired and imaginative life. If only we could all appreciate and accept those in our lives who are out of the ordinary like she did.
Killer wardrobe? Check.
Great sense of humor? Check.
Sexy husband? Check.
Fantastic city living? Check.
The most faithful of friends? Check.
Yes, she gets screwed over and yes she doesn't make the best decisions... but we all love Carrie. We all relate to Carrie. We all ARE Carrie on some level or another. Who wouldn't want to be her, even for a little bit?
1. I am cheating with this one. My number one choice is actually a favorite series of books that were made into a TV mini-series. I would jump at the chance to be Anne Shirley from Anne of Green Gables. I love these books. L.M. Montgomery does an amazing job of painting pictures in your mind of what Avonlea and P.E.I. look like. I always imagined the land of my dreams, and the movies made it a reality for me. I think the time period that Anne lives in is a simpler, more exciting time than we live in today. People were much more in touch with nature and did not take the small things for granted. Anne is so fortunate to leave her orphan life behind and embark on a new life in this beautiful place. She is loved, supported and encouraged all throughout her stay at Green Gables by extraordinary characters. Despite being teased about her looks as a youngster (Carrots!) and trying hard to hold back her quick temper (Her tiffs with the over-opinionated Rachel Lynde), who wouldn't envy her happiness, achievements and courage? Also, Gilbert Blythe is quite the catch! This is hands down the character I would like to be, even though I don't have red hair.... :)
