An Actor's Life

It seems to me that actors have such a hard life; just take this quote from Ray Winstone in The Observer "I had to keep kissing Angelina Jolie"; I feel so sorry for him having to endure the hardships of having "to keep kissing Angelina Jolie". And it isn't as if she is a particularly beautiful woman or anything, just a stunning example of the female form, as the picture (left) undoubtedly shows. If he finds this task so onerous maybe I could offer my services as a stand in next time he has "to keep kissing Angelina Jolie"; I think that I could adequately steel myself to undertaking this obvioulsy unnpleasant assignment...




Update in response to Cliff's comment:
I want it understood right here and now that I was offereing my services to stand in for Ray Winstone; I mean how could anyone even think that I (see pic left) look anything like Angelina Jolie! I would even extend that offer to cover any future difficulties he may have in "having to keep kissing" any of the beautiful actresses that he has to work with, as he seems to find this an onerous task.

you haven't made it quite clear whether is is ray winston or angelina jolie or either you would be happy to kiss, notthat it matters but in the one case I'd be afraid the prosthetic lips might come off if I applied too much force and in the other case I think you would have to buy him a razor first, although I must stress that stubble is not the only issue I have with kissing ray Winston, sterling bloke though he undoubtly is.

sorry milligoon, your profile didn't say whether you were male or female so I slightly mischievously seized on the little bit of ambiguity in the article. I do apologise but being honest I was genuinely being a bit think there because on relflection the photo probably is more of a male choice. If I may say so, what a handsome mountain goat you are, in a manly platonic sort of way of course. I can't quite think who you remind me of...

Ray Winstone can keep his job having to "keep kissing Angelina Jolie" as I fear she has rather too many tattoos than is strictly ladylike.

Now, if I could land the job of someone who "had to keep kissing" top Argentinian secret girlfriend Mia Maestro, I would not negotiate hard over the salary.

Somehow I'm just not sure that anyone believes the appeal of Angelina Jolie is because she is ladylike....!

Besides...what's wrong with tattoos?

Only Popeye looks good with tattoos. I'n not kissing him though because he has spinach between his teeth

Anonymous Anonymous said...

Hey Cliff, then we disagree! I think there are a lot of tatoos that look bad out there, but not all :)

Plus I don't think Popeye looks that good (with or without tattoos), I wouldn't kiss him, even if he used a toothpick!

MILLIGOON - what's your opinion as you are the self appointed Angelina kisser?

Blogger MilliGoon said...

Well as for me I am just a tart and will snog any good looking woman, especially if I am getting paid for it. And there is nothing wrong with a few tatoos, after all who looks at the mantlepiece when... etc. etc.

Whoops I think I may have just lowered the tone somewhat :)

Not to mention, incurred my wrath. You carry on like this, MilliGoon, and you will be deleted...What is it about the lowest common denominator, and you.

Some would say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder; however if you follow the thinking of Francis Hutcheson beauty is an inherent property of the human mind and this aesthetic sense is triggered by those things which possess "uniformity amidst variety"; Angelina Jolie posesses both uniformity and variety therefore she is beautiful QED...

Hey, c'mon BW I have at least got a lively debate going here, and you start using threats like "you will be deleted"; "foul" he cries "a blatant penalty"...

Well, I guess everyone needs a career..! :)

...and you can always turn the lights off because in the dark, etc etc...?

So what's your opinion on piercings then?

Anonymous Anonymous said...

MG - I'm with you on that one!

BW - I think you'll have to delete me too then! :) Or how about, 'if you can't beat them, join them'?

MG - Good to see the goat over here! :)

I'm confused: who is MG anyway? And why are there people who insist upon being anonymous...?

Thursday, May 11, 2006  
Blogger MilliGoon said...

Ah, now that depends on what is being pierced; just thinking about it makes my eyes water; however I do not intrinsically have a problem with it on others, that is if tastefully done and not over done...

I'd worked that out, MG. I mean, what's this with the reference to the goat? He's not back is he? Oh no.

Anyway, I have to go off to the airport and leave you good people to play on your own. So be good. I'll log on later and see what needs deleting.

Hey, I offered to get a 'name' a while back. BB said it wasn't necessary. I started posting as anonymous and just stayed with it. I guess one could ask - anonymous; pseudononymous, what is the difference?

But slightly more seriously, does it bother you?

Thursday, May 11, 2006  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

Yeah, we can play whilst BW is gone! :)


I always liked the quotation' when he was good he was very, very good; but when he was bad, he was better!'

:)

Blogger MilliGoon said...

Well it doesn't bother me, however if there is more than one anonymous commenting (and I don't think we have had that situation, at least not in the few days since I joined this blog) it does get a bit confusing, as my good mate Numptie will testify...

do you know BW for real milligoon?

Blogger MilliGoon said...

Agreed anonymous I always thought that had a certain ring to it as well. My grand father always said "Be good, if you can't be good be careful, and if you can't be careful then buy a pram", took me quite a few years to work that one out, right up until I was sixteen...

Cool.

Numptie - nice bloke, huh. I sure guys get on well! Give him my regards! :)


Actually, I don't blog. I tend to just read other peoples. (what does that make me a blog voyeur?)So, I started as anonymous...maybe it's time to get a name for over here...

MG - I'm glad you got that by the age of 16. Later might have caused a bigger problem...

I will give him your regards Anonymous, BondBloke sends his greetings also...

A "blog voyeur", hmmm, now there is a fetish that might be worth a dissertation :)

It has been specualted between Numptie and myself as to what name you would choose if ever you did; problem is that we had first to speculate on the gender issue, seeking clues wherever we could, and definitely came to our own conclusion on that a while back...

Ok, so give me my own personal character profile then...spare nothing...

Oh, I wouldn't dream of doing that, the air of mystery leaves so much more to the imagination; suffice to say that we sort of worked out that you are female, as some of your comments today tend to reaffirm, that is unless we are so wide of the mark as to be embarrassing...

Thursday, May 11, 2006  
Blogger Cliff said...

I must say that the innuendo, goats, confused identities and general running in and out of french doors makes this what I believe will be the comments thread that BW will be the most proud of when she looks back on this blog in years to come. It's positively shakespearean.

Thursday, May 11, 2006  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

No, female is right. Would never pretend to be anything other.

That's all you an Numptie came up with??? Two smart guys like yourselves? Sheesh, maybe you should head over to BB's place and see what he has to say...

:)

Blogger Cliff said...

I can't think why you haven't started your own blog mrs anonymous as I think it would be a good read. I hope you let BB's multiple personalities and the barely complete single one that I cling on to know when you start one up.

Hey Cliff. Yeah either that or this is the thread she spends the most time deleting!

Are you following or do we need to bring in a detective at the end of the story to explain the end conclusion and all the sub-plots? :)

Cliff - sorry, don't think I'm a natural blogger. AS soon as I start thinking about what I'm doing to write about it, I stop doing...and doing is more fun! ;)

Actually I write poetry and have been known to paint, but rarely admit that in real life! :)

Blogger MilliGoon said...

Cliff: more like a Whitehall farce really, and I think that we really are going to get it in the neck when BW surfaces in London as it is BB and Numptie who have been encouraging me in all of this; shame on them!

Anonymous: well we think you are an academic, have a sense of humour, a social conscience, we managed to track you down to The Netherlands via the sitemeter, and that is as far as I am prepared to go down this road...

Thursday, May 11, 2006

hmm, that makes me think that a 'I expect you're wondering why I've gathered you all here' session may be required. I was never too good at whodunnits or or in this case whoists..

all that appies to me though MG, well except for the social conscience, sense of humour, being in holland, being female or ever having seen the inside of a GCSE paper

wasn't aware this was a whoisit mystery... I thought we were just pushing the limits of BW's delete key whilst she's away...

Blogger MilliGoon said...

OK, OK already, I'll come clean, after all anyone who reads this comment thread will have worked it out anyway - yes BB aka Numptie, aka Milligoon is back! I know it is embarrassing really, or should that be pathetic?

Cliff - LOL

Actually I have just read a good book on how we are all quintessentially contradictory and trying to appear no so. Which throws all personality comments into total disarray... maybe... :)

although actually in my other life posting on my local message board someone told me they thought cliff was a woman not knowing he/she was me. It's quite good fun being the cause of such speculation as anonymous will attest

BW doesn't dare delete anything whic stays within the boundaries of the comments policy BB constructed, so if she starts deleting BB will be screamm human rigyhts abuse at the top of his voice...

huh chance would be a fine thing, BW is clinging to admin rights as if they were hen's teeth - It's OK it was bound to happen sooner or later, anyone who reads what BB and Numptie write would have worked out the style eventually. But this is definitely the only place I am going public...

Anonymous Anonymous said...

MG - maybe I should read that damn comments policy then ;) Doesn't ownership bring the right to treat as pleased? Also, does protesting after deletion really carry any weight? it's gone...

Cliff - it's a slghtly amusing way to spend Thursday evening, but actually in real life, I'm very private, so anonymous suits me pretty well. Although I still stand by my comment - isn't pseudononymous simply anonymous by another name?

I understand about being private completely anonymous. That's why my own scrawlings contains very little personal stuff, just the normal chimps with typewriters material

Thursday, May 11, 2006  
Blogger MilliGoon said...

I sort of realised that about an hour after I posted it Cliff, but too late to do anything about it then as too many people might have read it, and had I changed it there would have been a general outcry, or should that be cry "OUT!"?

Anonymouis: I stupidly walked out and got myself deleted - I realise now that I should have held on to the admin rights of the blog just in case. She's a hrda woman is BW and I will be made to jum through many firey hoops to get them back!
