Watching Willow Watts: If I could Be Anyone, I'd Be...



Talli Roland's new book, Watching Willow Watts, is now available on Kindle and other ebook platforms. To celebrate, Talli has organised this 'If I Could Be Anyone, I'd Be...' party! 


How does it work?: All you do is come dressed as that one person you've always admired, longed to impersonate, or just plain envied. All you need to do is post a photo of your chosen one (dead or alive) along with an explanation why you've picked that person. Easy, right? 


Who would I be? I'd be Katharine Hepburn.




Why? Hepburn was a woman who never gave up on her dream. Or sacrificed her principles to please others. Despite her early success, her brash personality and unconventional behaviour initially turned audiences away. But she masterminded her own comeback, buying the film rights to The Philadelphia Story and sold them on the condition she was to be the star. She went on to become one of the most acclaimed actresses in the world by determination, hard work and talent. 


Hepburn reminds me never to give up on my dreams. We can all control our own destiny if we work hard enough.


"The thing about life is that you must survive. Life is going to be difficult, and dreadful things will happen. What you do is move along, get on with it, and be tough. Not in the sense of being mean to others, but being tough with yourself and making a deadly effort not to be defeated."


Who would you be?

Great choice - a classic beauty. I almost went for Katherine H too - but instead chose Elizabeth Taylor cira 1950's!

Laura Marcella said...

I've seen a bunch of Katharine's films. I like the movies she's in with Carey Grant!

Cate Blanchett did a terrific job portraying Katharine Hepburn in The Aviator!

She sounds like one tough lady! Is it horrible I've never really seen any of her films, despite always knowing her name? I must rectify that.

Today, I would be Julie Andrews for her beautiful voice.

Talli Roland said...

Fantastic choice - I love that you've chosen someone with such a fighting spirit; a survivor!

Thanks so much for taking part. I really appreciate it! And I'm sorry I'm just popping by now. I flaked out early last night! xx

Very inspirational woman. Now I want to know more about her.

Ishta Mercurio said...

If I could be anyone, I'd be Leonardo da Vinci. He was a true Renaissance man, a master in several areas of discipline, and is still revered for his skill and ingenuity.

Except, you know, I'd be the girl version. :-)

BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN
Why American men should boycott American women

http://boycottamericanwomen.blogspot.com

I am an American man, and I have decided to boycott American women. In a nutshell, American women are the most likely to cheat on you, to divorce you, to get fat, to steal half of your money in the divorce courts, don’t know how to cook or clean, don’t want to have children, etc. Therefore, what intelligent man would want to get involved with American women?

American women are generally immature, selfish, extremely arrogant and self-centered, mentally unstable, irresponsible, and highly unchaste. The behavior of most American women is utterly disgusting, to say the least.

This blog is my attempt to explain why I feel American women are inferior to foreign women (non-American women), and why American men should boycott American women, and date/marry only foreign (non-American) women.

BOYCOTT AMERICAN WOMEN!


BRAND NEW: Buy the Boycott American Women book. After reading this book, I promise you that you will never even think about dating an American woman ever again, or else I will give you your money back. That's right, if you are not convinced by my book, I will give you a full refund!

She was a tough woman in a time when a woman was expected to be weaker. Great choice!

I chose Xena, Warrior Princess and Prue Halliwell from Charmed.
