When I was playing Mystique in X-Men, I remember thinking, If I’m going to be naked in paint in front of the entire world, I’m going to look like a woman. I’m going to have curves and have boobs and have a butt. Because girls are going to look at that, and if I look like a scarecrow, they are going to think, Oh, that’s normal. It’s not normal. I’m just so sick of these young girls with diets. I remember when I was 13 and it was cool to pretend to have an eating disorder because there were rumors that Lindsay Lohan and Nicole Richie were anorexic. I thought it was crazy. I went home and told my mom, “Nobody’s eating bread, I just had to finish everyone’s burgers”. I think it’s really important for girls to have people to look up to and feel good about themselves.
"If I could get bands to come and play in my house, I’d like that. I’ve never been to a festival. I’m a creature of habit, mashed-potato comfort, I like rugs. Our sofa’s squishy. Maybe too squishy - it’s hard to get up sometimes."
You play some really strong female characters such as Rose in Doctor Who, Belle etc.. do you think it’s important for TV to showcase females like this?
“I think it is important but I also think it’s important and necessary to show women for who they are which is also vunerable and emotional and mad. Instead of just showing women who are like’ I work I have kids I can do EVERYTHING’ I feel like that’s a bad representation, it can be done but not without enormous levels of stress, so I think that’s more important than showing ballsy women”
My summary: What if John never forgave Sherlock for faking his death? In this fic, John breaks off their friendship completely. They don’t see each other for eight years, during which John gets married, moves away, and eventually gets divorced and comes back to London. Eventually Lestrade tricks John into going to a crime scene, and he sees Sherlock again for the first time in nearly a decade.
READ it children. Read and weep, I wept tears for Sherlock so hard
