Why I love Mae West
I have heard lots of pop culture references to her, but I finally watched a few of her movies over my semester break. And I LOVE her.
I don't agree with most of her viewpoints, but I love how she is so completely who she is, and remained that way for her entire life. She plays a vamp in almost all of her movies / plays, and all of the men (including a young, very hot, Cary Grant in two of his earliest roles) would do virtually anything for just a slice of her attention. But she is not thin, and by the time she started to do movies, she was almost 40. Yet, she is seen collecting diamonds from men who profess their undying love for her, while she is friendly but aloof.
Whether I weigh 250 or 150 or 99 pounds, my goal is to be done waiting for (insert weight or other achievement) to feel as confident and deserving of admiration as she did!
