How Long Would it Take You to Recognize This Actress sort of a Queen?
This Award winning Actress, has come a long way, and we thought of a better way to introduce her work, through a timeline. We want to make it fun and we can start to show some pictures. Remember, every time you see a photograph from her personal album, take 15 seconds to make up your mind and go to the next one. After every picture we will drop the ball of information, or misinformation...Just kidding. Of course by seeing baby pictures you won't be able to recognize her. But just have your 3 or 5 minutes to find out for yourself.
"When I was 27, I went back to see my House and the room where I used to sleep. This was terrible. Mom actually... gee! made me sleep in the closet; for goodness sake! All was so tiny after going back 10 years later. I owe my life to my mother, you want to know why?
When I was 2 years old I fell in this swimming pool and practically I was drowning, and perhaps saying good bye like a little mermaid, but Mom was this strong woman, and a mom , of course. She just jumped and got me out with not even thinking of taking her sandals off."
This is why I joined PETA
"Besides being daddy's girl I love animals. I remember my first movie that I really loved; It was called 'splash' with Tom Hanks. I hated Daryl Hannah, and I felt that I could've made a better part. Mom and dad had to drive one hour, to take us to the nearest cinema. My Mom was very...let's say practical. She taught me to be myself, and depend on my own decisions. The good thing about home was the good information we had about the world. A newspaper on the couch, TV news and Political awareness around my little brain was always a common thing for us... still so young, but trying to cope with what my parents dealt with.
This might sound horrible, but at age 5, my parents drove near this driver stuck in his Taxi. His gas tank exploded after hitting this truck, I think, and... He knew his body was getting burnt. He begged people to shoot him, before dying a horrendous death. In my city, every one was allowed to carry a gun. This was a clear as today. A young man age person got closer to the screaming victim... close his eyes, and really shot him!! That's when I started to learn the meaning of Life."
A family of our own
Okay, so far we are revealing her background as we go. If you guessed her, you can go down to the poll and answer it. If not just keep reading. We know by know, why her performances were stunning.
"I hate to talk about the past, and Mom is a private person. She is a strong woman, and I'm becoming 'her' little by little. When I made it to Hollywood in 1994, I had to put away a past. In 2007, I came out with this very personal past.
Mom is going to kill me! My healing process is bearable now, and we celebrate life. Me and mom had to overcome this incident. On Friday June 21, 1991, mother decided to shoot my dad to death on self defense; He was threatening to kill us, and mom was aware of his intentions... I was aware too, but for a 15 years old girl, there was not much choice. All mom said to me was... 'Sorry and, well, go to your room and cover yourself under your bedspread.'
I heard..., to be honest I forgot it really... maybe 2, or three shots and that was it. I heard mom screaming, 'I did use it, I killed him! No!!' My uncle came to stop mom from keep shooting, but mom instinctively wounded my Uncle too...who ran away thinking she was already out of her mind. That day, changed the life... my life and my mom's life forever. I do not have any grudge whatsoever against her, but she knew she was defending my life once more."
"I hate this picture, but that is me at 12. From 7 to 13, I was a mess. Boys never cared about me, and I was very introverted. Bullying ended at 13. after that age, I was less vulnerable to these attacks. I felt so shortsighted, that I had to wear glasses. I wanted to study Dancing and Ballet. One day, my mom and I, went to that movie Theater. We never knew what they were showing... but we found that they were premiering this movie called, '9 weeks and 1/2.' Everything seemed fine, but I was only 8 or 9. Mom looked at me and said, 'You better start learning about life and deal with it.' My Mother is very private, and all I can say is that she is the best mom I ever had. This makes no sense, because her mom was not really there for her."
Are you sure you know already about this famous actress? Maybe you know already. If not we will continue for a few more minutes :
"Finally my mom decided to enter me on a local modeling Contest. Which really got me out of my environment and sent me to Milan Italy. From there and being in Europe for a year, I moved to New York to study Ballet at the Joffrey Ballet School. I was really broke, and I the apartment for a future star was this windowless basement apartment. My mom was always my support and was back at home. Suddenly my knees gave up, and my career as a dancer was literally over. The worst depression of my life took hold of me. Mom flew back to me and told me straight forward, 'Either you figure out what to do next or you come home, because you can sulk in there...' I was tired of just being a pretty face, and mom gave me a one way ticket to Hollywood. I took her advice in taking responsibilities for my own decision. The year was 1994."
"I was really struggling for 6 months. I heard that it wasn't easy to break into this Monster. Porno? No way! My values were stronger to fall that low... Mom again right? Why not? She sent me a check for 500 dollars so I could pay my rent. And I went to a Bank on Hollywood Boulevard. The teller told me that internal policies prevented her from cashing my life saver check, because it was issued in another state and, I hate this things!! I started arguing with her, engaged in a shouting match.
To my good luck, behind me was this talent agent, John Crosby, who noticing my voice and my determination, convinced himself of my potentiality. He gave me his business card, and after that, his contacts knew me almost overnight."
