OK, first off:
erislover you’re absolutely right. I totally understand what you’re saying. Right now I have no transcripts or evidence than what I claim is true. I will later search for examples. Maybe I wont find enough to convince you and that’s fine. All I know is that when I see in her in interviews, I think to myself how arrogant she seems. I have been told by three separate people, two of which brought it up on their own the day after she may have been on Leno or something.
Like I said, I liked her on “Cruel Intentions” and I never saw “Buffy”, but I could very well have gotten into it.
That brings me to Finagle:
“The X-Files” was one of my favorite shows, and David Duchovny was constantly ripped on on Bulletin Boards I used to be a part of. I didn’t know why, I was never given a specific example; some would just say they saw him in an intervew and didn’t like the way he spoke or what he said. I didn’t let it get to me, nor did I question if the insulters took on any of the bad qualities he or she threw at the actor.
I know that “I” have a right not to like this woman. I actually posted this thread to see if anyone else saw the same in her, not really to convince others, (maybe ask others that they watch for it next time they see her). Evedently I’m not the only one who’s commented negitivly, (not that there are that many). You see Finagle, it DOES matter what the person is like in real life. If they’re a jerk, then why would I want to help pay for their new place in the Hamptons. I think you’re mad because I dissed your Vampire Slayer, (maybe I’m wrong, but there are many people on these boards doing the same thing). I’m quite sure you’ve complained in SOME way about SOMEONE the same way as I have at least once or twice in you life.
I DO know the difference between actors and their characters. Ironically, I’m willing to give a person many chances if I don’t happen to like a few movie or TV shows they are in. Take Jim Carrey or Adam Sandler for instance. Many people on these board HATE them for their previous work. I might hate their previous work, but recognize that SOME people MUST like what they are doing. They are doing their jobs as entertainers. If they happen to make a slight career change and did more “serious” work, or even work more oriented to my tastes, I am MORE than willing to give them a chance. However, a lot of people on these boards don’t do that. But if I think an actor’s an ASS in real life, like a snooty employ at a department store, it effects where I go to get what I want. But her acting like a jerk, (IMHO), aside… I STILL admitted to liking a film she was in, and just MIGHT see another movie with her in it.
People come here and complain all the time. You may hear arguments to the contrary… that’s fine. But I AM a happy person, I don’t judge people who judge people I happen to be a fan of. I may judge their judgment, but I wouldn’t make such a bold statement like “I think so-in-so would be a much happier person if…”. I get upset at people like everyone else, especially people who have the power to influence, and say things I REALLY don’t really agree with. These boards are great, because they give everyone the power to speak their mind. If you think I’m a tool, fine, I’m not selling you anything.
I really didn’t want to convince people she was a jerk. Like I said, maybe make them aware that someone does so they can watch and see what they think. This is my opinion, if you don’t share it or don’t care, fine. I really wanted to see if others ever thought the same, maybe even have people try to convince me otherwise.
Sorry for spelling and such. I had to type quickly.
