Interviewer : So did you realize when you were doing it(playing rapunzel) just how sexy the character was-that Zach was gonna play? [x]
I AM DYING. THEIR FACES.
“Amy: I was like, I finally found the woman I want to marry.
Tina: And then I had to break it to her that that’s not legal.”
INTERVIEWER: To play a stammerer, is that a hard thing to do?
COLIN FIRTH: Well, yeah, it’s not an easy thing to do. I was very worried about being authentic because there are people who really do live with it and I think it’s something that causes tremendous suffering. It’s not often that actors are given—well, yeah—I mean, so aware of it, the sense of responsibility. Because frankly, if something isn’t represented very often in film—and it isn’t—if it is, it’s usually to mock it. I think it’s something we need to think about: that there’s still a disability somewhere that somehow is legitimized to pastiche and, uh, you know, you don’t get to do that, really, anymore. So it has been used rather—you know, the brilliant performance by Brad Dourif, One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest there was a brilliant performance by David Jacoby also playing an unwilling monarch who is placed, you know—we call it a monarch—but the emperor-knight Claudius. But it doesn’t address the stammer as the issue itself. [The King’s Speech] is one of the stories as far as i know that’s ever been put to film which addresses how debilitating and how traumatizing it is. I thought well, you know, I’ve got to go as far as I can to make this authentic otherwise I would be letting quite a lot of people down. I was very aware of that.
You know what my new favorite thing is? I keep noticing that the pictures in the magazines have a lot of the young celebrity girls smiling like this… and if you really look at it, you don’t notice it in the picture but if you really look how open their mouths are.. it’s like, when have you ever in your life been so happy that you smile like this?
