For a while, I've been thinking of making an article on my influential celebs and here they are. This list is just on entertainers. I'm not the biggest celebrity person, but these have inspired me in some sort of way and I love them! Instead of putting trashy people and basic bitches (whose names I won't name) on a pedestal, here are some people I'd like to talk about who should get some credit for the great individuals that they are. I'd also like to add that it's just my opinion and I'd love to hear what you've got to say.
Emma Watson is one intelligent woman. For one, she made the wise decision to go to college despite being a rich actress where she could easily just stick to being an actress. Emma Watson planned ahead thinking about what would happen if her acting career ended. She's a talented actress on top of that too. She hasn't had it easy for her and she hasn't forgotten her roots. She's also humble and down to earth. Another trait I love is her poise and elegance. Elegance is a trait I admire (and you'll see some more of this trait in on my list) She's got the brains of Hermoine Granger, but without the know it all attitude.
The It Girl
Forget the Disney and Nick teen actresses. Hailee is the real deal. She's just a young teenager, but she's very talented. She appeals to people of all ages, and is taken seriously. I'd love to watch anything with her in it. Not only is she talented, but she's got a killer fashion sense! She also seems such a nice and cool person to hang out with. I'm looking forward to see what she does next.
The Fabulous Icon
My love for Mae West all started when I did a project on her in the 7th grade. Loved her ever since. She's a great actress, a great singer, and a great icon. What I loved the most about her was how funny, cheeky and dominating she was. (Look at that picture of her! Really shows who's the one in charge!) During her years, a woman's role in society was to be gentle, submissive, and pure....That's just fucked up! It didn't work that way for Mae West! She was bold, experienced, and submitted to nobody! Her sex life wasn't about pleasuring men, it was about men pleasuring her and there's nothing wrong with that at all. Mae West has lived a fabulous life and looked fabulous as an old lady too.
The Loyal Affectionate
Something I absolutely love about The Wanted is that they truly adore and are grateful for their fans (I can honestly go on about it) and that they don't do any drugs! What makes Max so special is for one, he's got a wonderful voice.He's also incredibly sexy! He puts the Max is Maximus Fitimus. Plus he's got such gorgeous expressive eyes! (It doesn't show in the picture though) Speaking of expressive, I love how even though he's all masculine on the outside, he's actually a very emotional and affectionate person who is said to cry quite a lot. He's also very nurturing. I think that's sexy and this is coming from a girl that pretty much doesn't have any of those traits!! He's very loyal to the people cares about like his family, bandmates, fans, and significant other.
Selena Quintilla Perez
Every latino knows who Selena is! She was one of the greatest latin legends there ever was. I've loved Selena ever since I was a little girl. She was a lovable person who did amazing things. Her voice was extraordinary, her songs had everyone singing along, and her performances were a lot of fun to watch. On top of that, she was such a sweet, nice and friendly girl! I don't even understand why that woman killed her. All what Selena did was give people lots of love. It's sad that she died so soon, she would of been an even greater legend! She might be dead, but her legacy continues to live.
Nobody is perfect, but Siva Kaneswaran is as close as it gets. I mean just look at him! Talk about beautification. It's no wonder he's a model. I like how he's aware of how hot he is, but he never acts vain because of it. He's actually a really shy! He's also charming, smart, polished, sweet, romantic and has a nice soothing singing voice. What girl wouldn't want a boyfriend like that? It makes me sad how underrated he his compared to his other band mates! He deserves more credit. I really admire his calm, quiet, and soft spoken nature. There should be more guys like that.
The Spiritual Essence
If anyone was gotten me into Bollywood, it's Aishwarya Rai. I was always interested in her even before I got into it. If you ask me, I'd say she's the queen of Bollywood. Aishwarya is one of my favorite actresses and any movie with her presence is convincing enough for me to watch. She is just so talented. Not only is she a superb actresses, she's also a superb dancer. She's like a dancing guru. Aside from her great talents, she's a very classy lady. People are astonished by her elegance and grace. She's always lady like and modest. Aishwarya is also very spiritual and sticks to her beliefs no matter how much it costs her. (She turned down an offer for "Troy" w/ Brad Pitt because Helen was too provocative) She's traditional yet powerful at the same time. She's also like an Aphrodite. Even though she is said to be one of the most beautiful women in the world which I agree, she doesn't let her looks define her. When she had her daughter, she gained a lot of weight and got a lot of criticism for it which is stupid because its normal. Instead of obsessing over her weight like a weak girl trying to please other people, she was still confident and lost the weight in a healthy way. I just lover her to bits!
The A Lister
I've loved Anne Hathaway ever since I saw her in "Ella Enchanted" and "The Princess Diaries". Any movie with her is enjoyable! Maybe it's because she's brings a ton of personality to her characters or she seems like such a cool person or maybe it's both. (Yeah it's definitely both!) She deserves all the awards she gets and her super star status. None of it goes to her head. Instead, she is down to earth, real, and natural. Anne is as just beautiful in the inside as she is on the outside. She's a humanitarian. She's always cheering people up with her friendliness, donating money to hospitals and organizations, and always being nice to her fans. She's also a strong person for struggling to getting over depression and quitting smoking. Talk about devotion!
The Wild Card
Is there anyone you really like just because you find them to be really interesting? Well thats how I feel about about Andreea Banica. She's got this beautiful airy voice and Im happy whenever I hear a new song by her. She's also a loving mother and wife.
The Brilliant Mind
Damon Albarn has got such an awe-inspiring imagination. He's a genius and has many talents. He started out in Blur, which I'm not really a fan of (but they are talented), but what really got me into him was Gorillaz, a band that's full of creativity and uniqueness. Not only are they an animated band with interesting characters created by him and Jamie Hewlett but he also was a able to fit all sorts of genres into Gorillaz and have a wide variation of fans and sounds from Brit pop, hip hop, electronic, reggae, and even some middle eastern roots. Plus he's got an amazing voice with a wide vocal range. Their songs also have deep messages and you can tell that Damon takes his work seriously. Just like Aishwarya, he sticks to his beliefs no matter how much it costs him.He's not afraid to diss artists that lack talent and if something sucks, he just says it. He might not have the friendliest image, but Damon is a passionate and intelligent person. He has a humanitarian perspective by being concerned about those in need and global warming, and ending war. Damon Albarn is an influential person in many ways.
The Latin King of Comedy
This guy sure knows how to make me laugh! He never fails to bring a smile on my face. George Lopez always comes up with these hilarious jokes and his persona is just so funny! The hispanic jokes he makes are exaggerated yet accurate. I always have a good time when I'm watching anything with him in it. I love the George Lopez show and pretty much anything else with him in it. Jokes aside, he is a kind person. He donates to communities and is actually a recipient of the Manny Mota Foundation.
The Bollywood God
The first time I ever laid my eyes on him, it was in some Bollywood dance scene and the first thing that came to my mind was, "Who is this guy?!". Turns out this guy is Hrithik Roshan who is a phenomenal actor and dancer. Its hard not to fall for him. He's one of the best dancers I've seen actually seen and while, in the first movie I saw with him, I couldn't see much of his acting skills, but in others, it's just really great. He's also super hot! I usually am not into Indian guys (no offense), but he's like a God and even girls that don't really like Indian guys think he's hot too! On top of that, he's got a great personality. He's a loving father and husband! He seems like a super nice down to earth guy too! It's hard not to fall for him.
My favorite member of The Wanted would have to be Jay McGuiness. He's truly a genuine person! First of all, he's amazingly beautiful.He sometimes can look like a porcelain doll. He's actually one of my most desirable men and he's elegant too, even his bandmates think so. He's really polite and charming with an enchanting way of speaking and Im not saying that just because he has a posh Brit, but he also has an eloquent vocabulary. He's also a bit quirky. Jay is really smart and talented too. He's got a beautiful voice and is a wicked dancer. It really don't understand how Jay has these special gifts and he's totally unaware of it. He's so modest and cares about making others happy. He usually puts others needs before his and he always does his best to make all of the fans feel special! He's just so nice to everybody and I'd love to meet him someday.
Lana Parilla always casts a spell on me with her impressive acting. All the characters she plays are really interesting. I knew I was going to love her before I saw any of her performances and turns out I love her even more. This women is very skilled when it comes to acting. I would love to watch anything with her in it. You would think Lana could be a ruthless person in real life like Regina, but she's actually a nice fun loving person. In her interviews, she brings a ton of personality and she's just as interesting as the characters she plays.
The Work of Art
An actress I'm obssesing over right now is Monica Bellucci. She's truly amazing. She's a phenomenal actress and she stars in a lot of beautiful movies. I feel as if she's really artistic when she's acting and the movies and characters she plays are a work of art. She's really beautiful too and she can do things you normally wouldn't see a 50 year old doing like being naked in a movie. I usually would be disgusted with seeing a naked chick, but Monica is naked in films for an artistic and passionate purpose plus she dresses like decent person, so I can over look that. Aside from that I always found Monica Bellucci to be a very interesting person. She's very spiritual and fights for the equal rights.
The Voice of Reason
Nathan Sykes is one talented young man. When I heard his voice for the first time, my mind was blown and I've loved him ever since. Even people that don't listen to The Wanted are stunned by his heavenly voice. Not only does he have an amazing singer, but he's also a piano virtuoso. He's also super cute with a little bit of sexy. He reminds me a bit of Bambi for some reason. Maybe it's because he's so shy and has a calm, gentle nature. I really admire the fact that even though he's the youngest in the band, he's actually really mature. Maybe it's just the accent, but there's something sophisticated about him. He's definitely classy though. Nathan is also a real sweetheart. He tries to be a good role model for his younger sister and fans that met him said he was the sweetest guy ever.
There's a reason why she's called Queen Latifa. First of all she says that every lady should be treated like a queen. Then there's Latifa, a name that she picked out because she believed it fit her perfectly, very kind and delicate. I wouldn't call her delicate because she's an incredible powerful, strong, and intelligent lady. She had a lot of struggles in her life and she's been told many times that she couldn't rap or own a business because she's a girl. Well, she proved them wrong! Queen Latifa is such an inspiration to not just women of color, but to any girl. She's really funny, brings so much personality to everything, and I always thought she was beautiful. She's definitely a queen.
The Sexy Sweetheart
I love Ryan Reynolds so much! He sure has stolen my heart. First of all he's a great actor. Say what you want about his performance on the Green Lantern or whatever, but he is a talented actor and he's so funny. He's extremely gorgeous and sexy too. I was happy when Ryan Reynolds was the named the sexiest man alive. He truly deserved it! He's charming, elegant, and has a body that most men would kill for. On top of all that, he's a real sweetheart. Other than his sarcastic sense of humor, he's nothing like some of the characters he plays. He's actually a really shy, sweet, compassionate, and humble guy. His good nature shines through his charity activities. Ryan Reynolds is a beautiful person inside and out.
The Extraordinary Activist
This woman is amazing beyond words! Salma Hayek is an amazingly influential person. Her acting is just extraordinary and draws me in. I love her in both live action and animated movies. She started out as a Mexican actress and became a Hollywood superstar with a ton of important awards. With all those accomplishments she's an activist against violence towards women and immigration. Salma even breast fed a baby whose mother couldn't produce milk. Her humanitarian work made her an even more respectable figure and she launched a campaign for female empowerment. Seriously, how can you not love her? In addition, she's very beautiful. In fact she's the most beautiful woman I've ever seen.In other words, she's pure awesomeness!
