Thank you again Michael at A Life Examined for providing me the Question of the Month for my Monday post. This month’s question is...

                     “Who would play you in a movie of your life?”

And the fact is, that's a really good question. I can only base my choices on who I think the actresses to follow actually are, because the fact is, I don't actually know them. Rather, to me, they are made up in my mind of the best parts of the characters they've played. So here goes. Who would play me in a move about my life?

I'll start with Kate Winslet. She seems to be a down to earth type of woman, and yet, seems to have a fiery and spicy side as well (think Rose from Titanic). I feel like she's an underrated gorgeous woman of Hollywood who hasn't sold out her natural beauty with injected lips and Botox. Again identifying with her character, Rose, I want to learn and experience all I can in this world, with a bit of sass and lots of confidence.

If for some reason Kate is busy, I'd have to reach out to Zooey Deschanel. She seems to play (and portray in life) a very individualistic styled nerd who, ironically, fits in everywhere. I see her as another down to earth, natural beauty who doesn't conform to the pressures of Hollywood. I mean, what bad press have your ever heard about Zooey? I highly identify with the nerd role, after all, yours truly has been called a nerd and has the glasses to prove it.

Sadly, I used to think being a nerd was a bad thing, but the older I get the more I love and identify with the title and am even proud of it these days. Zooey's character in the movie, "Yes, Man" marches to the beat of her own drum. She tries new and different things, not for any one person's approval, but because she enjoys them (photography while jogging, she's in a band and rides a scooter) and to me, that's sexy.

And finally, if neither of those ladies are available, while definitely not my last place choice, I would pick Melissa McCarthy. She is seemingly confident in her own skin, funny and smart. She can take on any role from that of her Bridesmaid character Megan, to more serious roles like that in St. Vincent. Either way to me, she exudes fun, sassy and even sexy. She just seems happy. 

So yeah, in a nutshell, I want a smart, funny, underrated sexy, nerd to play me because that is how I identify myself. Maybe I'm not all of those characteristics at the same time, but it's who and what I strive to be at any given time. I'm not always successful. There are days I'm a down and out crab, and feel as far from sexy as one person can get. But the fact is, that's not every day. And those days don't define me and won't stop me from moving forward, always trying to be a better version of myself. 


  1. I love all three of your picks. :) I always wanted Kate's hair color on the Titanic...gorgeous!

  2. Great picks! I love Melissa McCarthy, she's SO awesome. :)

  3. Not the first McCarthy pick today. She is a talented lady.

  4. This sounds like an absolutely great mix of ladies (I picked Melissa McCarthy, too, ha ha).

  5. Well you need someone who can portray those moments when you doubt yourself. Otherwise there's be no movie ;)

  6. I like all your choices. I just saw St. Vincent. It's great.


  7. I like all your choices, but think I have more fondness for Zooey and Melissa.
