"It was exciting and just a major, major compliment…I was happy for all the girls who would see me on [it] and feel a little more seen." - Lupita Nyong’o on being named People Magazine’s Most Beautiful

I don’t know, so much of women’s femininity is tied up with their hair.

At the beginning of the fight scene between O-Ren and The Bride, O-Ren says “I hope you saved your energy. If you haven’t you may not last 5 minutes”. It is exactly 4 minutes and 59 seconds from the time she steps forward and the music cues, until the fatal blow of the duel.

I never felt that acting was a big deal or got nervous. My only training was doing GCSE drama. Even my friends didn’t watch my programmes. x

Pt. 3
Do you trust your chances to make it to the World Cup?
I guess it depends on how the final stage of the season goes. Everything gets a whole new dimension during the last month of the competition. Important things could be accomplished in the games we’re about to play so in that sense, I could benefit from that.
Do you think people like yourself or villa deserve to go, in a way, because all you’ve accomplished before?
No. Not by default, never. There’s a lot of things that come into play, though. I think that the treatment of a player during this transitional time should be handled in a certain way. I’m not saying that it has or that it hasn’t, and I won’t tell you if it has or if it hasn’t. But I believe there are players who have earned that. I’m not saying I’m one of them, or that El Guaje is, or anyone else for that matter, not even Iker who’s also been the subject of this type of controversy before. All of those people have made history along with the rest of the team, they’ve been fundamental to the team’s success. I’m not saying that they should be called up all the time, because that would be detrimental to the team’s growth and evolution; what I’m saying is that the treatment should be concrete.
To win again at Brazil, what would that mean?
To continue making history. Now we’re competing against ourselves, like Barcelona does, and that’s incredibly tough. Everything but winning it all will be considered a failure, and while terribly unfair, it is how it is.
A day will come when we lose, and while I hope it won’t be this time, it will come, and from that day on, we will truly start to value everything this generation has accomplished.
Is Brazil this generation’s last chance?
No. The important thing is to get it right with the replacements. Koke, Isco, Ramos, Jordi Alba, Piqué, Busquets, Fábregas, Silva… the team is still strong, and very young.
Do you ever speak to Del Bosque?
No. (x)
