Amanda Bonner (Katharine Hepburn) from Adam's Rib (1949, dir. George Cukor).
I've always been a feminist, so Amanda's personality and boldness hits close to home. And who wouldn't love to have those cheekbones?
Belle (Paige O'Hara) from Beauty and the Beast (1991, dir. Gary Trousdale).
She's a bookworm and people think she's strange. That's all too familiar...
Dorothy Gale (Judy Garland) from The Wizard of Oz (1939, dir. Victor Fleming).
I'm originally from a small town, and, trust me, I know what it's like wanting to be "over the rainbow".
Constance Peterson (Ingrid Bergman) in Spellbound (1945, dir. Alfred Hitchcock).
My love for Bogie made me want to choose Ilsa Lund, but I ended up going with Constance since we share a strong interest in psychology.
Jim Stark (James Dean) in Rebel Without a Cause (1955, dir. Nicholas Ray).
I wouldn't call myself a rebel or a trouble-maker by any means. But, at times, I can't help but identify with certain aspects of Dean's character in a way that I've never understood. Back to the part where people think I'm strange.
Honestly, there are probably several- maybe even dozens- more film characters much like myself, but this is just what I felt resembled me the most.
I hope you enjoyed this post! Until next time...
