Op-Ed: The Terrorist Barack Hussein Obama times
The first few comments I read were actually worth reading as opposed to the comments left by long island residents on topix.com…my conclusion = people are slime
-Without veering into the realm of parlour psychology, why do you think you’ve always been so painfully shy and retiring?
I’m not nearly as bad as I used to be. I feel as though I’ve loosened up a great deal, lately. I’ve always lacked self-confidence, but that doesn’t mean that I’m shy, so much as I am reserved and introspective. I’m my own harshest critic. I spend the whole time judging myself, which is something I sorely regret.
-Are you forever questioning your performances as an actress and singer?
Absolutely. Which is never particularly constructive. On the contrary, my lack of self-confidence and constant self-questioning can prove to be completely paralyzing. When I’m making a film or a record, I need to surround myself with people who can encourage me and make me believe in myself. I set myself very high standards, and the times when I’m 100% satisfied are few and far between. I’m not saying that everything I do is awful, but as far as I’m concerned, it could always be better.
-What do you most dislike about Paris?
Paradoxically, I quite like the fact that Parisians suffer from such a terrible reputation overseas for their Gallic hauteur. Most people say that we’re incredibly disagreeable and haughty, which I’m sure is true. Personally, I’ve always taken great pride in our honesty, however brutal it may seem. At least we’re not a bunch of two-faced hypocrites.
-What do you most dislike about the way you look?
A lot of things. I don’t have the face I wish I had. I’m not satisfied with the way I look, in the same way that I’m not satisfied with many things in my life. Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. It keeps me on the edge of my seat.
