Moving Thoughts Friday--Show Time


Every Friday I’m going to ask a question. The questions I choose might be ambiguous on purpose. The goal is to have you answer the question according to your beliefs, where you’re at in life or a circumstance that might have recently impacted you. The only thing I ask is that you provide an explanation for why you answered the way you did.

It’s my hope to understand you better through this and also to gain a greater understanding of humanity and how people make decisions.
Just for kicks, Hollywood calls & wants to make your life into a movie. (Realistic, right?) Which actor or actress would you want to play your part?

  1. Julianne Moore. She's a redhead, a very good actress and freely admits to having faults. Oh and she's wickedly funny. Can Clive Owen play my husband? Can I be Julianne's stunt double?

  2. This doesn't really work because both of these actresses are 10 years older than I am (so we're all getting up there!), but the two I've always thought would play me well would be Andie McDowell or Mare Winningham.

  3. Betty White?

    Sorry. Don't know where that came from.

    This is a tough question. I really like Reese Witherspoon. I'd love to look like Jennifer Aniston. But I could see Kristen Wiig (from Saturday Night Live) in the role best!

  4. Oooh, I'd like someone French, like Sophie Marceau! But when the movie Sabrina came out, with Julia Ormond (with short hair), I can't tell you how many people said I looked like her. Now she's pretty wrinkly, but hey, I'm glad she's aging naturally.

    1. Yes, you do look like Julia Ormond! Wrinkly? Ahem. Wrinkles are fine...

    2. Hee...I'll probably have more wrinkles than Julia! But I do wonder if she smoked or had lots of sun exposure, since her wrinkles seemed kind of early.

  5. The two actresses I've been compared to are Julia Roberts and Brooke Shields - but I think that's stretching it a little! :) You didn't tell us who would portray you!?!?

  6. Sadly, the actress I'd really want isn't alive: Katherine Hepburn. She rocks!

  7. No idea. None. Sheesh.
    Somebody with a sense of humor. You pick, Wendy.
    (Is that cheating?)

    1. I'm thinking Debra Winger from her Officer and a Gentleman days. Just a whim.

  8. I'm stealing Jill's answer. I adore Reese Witherspoon.

  9. The first actress that popped into my head is Jennifer Garner.

  10. Oooh, I just thought of another (dead) cool actress--in her heyday, Elizabeth Taylor was awesome (loved A Place in the Sun, Cat on a Hot Tin Roof..). WENDY, you now have to tell us who would play you?

  11. Oh what the hey, if we're pretending & having fun I'll go with Charlize Theron or Scarlett Johansson. ;-) Fun on this gorgeous & sunny Friday.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Yep on both counts, the hubby & the double. ;)

  13. The crazy barista in the coffee shop where I often work keeps insisting that I look like Meredith Gray from Gray's Anatomy. Yes, I'm too lame to know her real name but based on his assessment "we could be twins!!!" So maybe she'd be a good choice ;)

    1. I've only seen like 20 minutes total of Gray's Anatomy, but I know EXACTLY who you're talking about--you do look like her! It's funny when people always see someone else in you...but eventually, you just want to look like yourself! Hee.

  14. Who has red hair and is nutty? Oh, Lucille Ball. We'd have to resurrect her, but she'd act me fine.

  15. Albert Finney in his Saturday Night, Sunday Morning days. When I was younger and worked as a labourer someone once commented that I reminded them of him.

    ReplyDelete
  16. When I was younger ish like, I actually had people believe I was The Duchess of York. To the point of gasping when I walked by. And she's SUCH a role model.

    1. Hee...put on some airs and "take your tea..."! I can see this! Love the red hair, y'know!

  17. Bette Midler. Because she is fun, crazy and I love to hear her sing. I had a nice voice before I ruined it smoking.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I'm thinking Amy Adams would be perfect for me!!
    But I'd also settle for Meg Ryan or Sandra Bullock. :-)

    ReplyDelete
  19. Carey Lowell ... I didn't even know she is Richard Gere's wife. She was Maggie Baldwin in Sleepless in Seattle. I picked her because of the sweet scene in the movie.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Either Audrey Hepburn(that type) or Grace Kelly (again, that type.) I know both of these are no longer with us but I like both of them for their style.
