The Shy Starlet

Do you remember the genuinely shy girl at school that couldn’t speak to anyone. When she did her face would be a shade of scarlet not seen since A's were sewn onto adulterer's clothing and whatever sound was produced from her mouth was so quiet it felt like a light breeze tickled your hearing?

I do, for I while there I was one - (I'll wait a second for those that know me to raise an eyebrow or two...). It was a wretched feeling so the alarming rate at which awkward looking, coy sounding movie actresses are coming out of the woodwork doesn't sit well with Thee Middle Sister. All these actresses giving monosyllabic answers to red carpet interviews leaves a sickly sweet flavour (akin to what it would taste like if a care bear threw up) in my mouth. It just doesn't feel like authentic characters are coming through.

Was it Kristen Stewart that started it all? Had her stumbling, introverted character not been so successful at reeling in the paps and TV presenter's curiosity, would we see so many now?

Take this Mara woman, Ooh I’m shy I’m demure, if you fart on me I’ll fall over. Really Rooney? then how did you get through an audition for Dragon Tattoo then? Let alone filming some rather graphic scenes! Did your sense of timidity disappear when Daniel Craig popped up, cos a truly shy girl would have run a mile from a movie star.

We need a new word in our vocabulary as Kim K describes herself as painfully shy as well. Genuinely shy people aren’t the type to bolt when being asked to dance in front of people at a Prince concert, but party like a rock star when posing naked for Playboy covered in only pearls and diamonds.

(Poor dear looks terrified huh?).

And this is 2012 so while I love Mad Men I don't want to live it! When it comes to icons and heros for future ladies in the world, one woman that does embody all that fame and fortune could produce is busy proving it is possible to be a millionaire and still have an actual personality.

Long live Adele.
