  • She then posted two cringe-worthy video apologies
  • “I’ve never taken myself so seriously,” Priyanka wrote.

New Delhi:

Priyanka Chopra isn’t impressed with American actress Rosie O’Donnell’s non-apology (and neither are we). In a note she shared on her Instagram Stories, Priyanka suggested a Google search before making what she described as “a public apology for a very awkward private encounter.” Story – Rosie O’Donnell went to see Priyanka, whom she didn’t know, and Nick Jonas, whom she knew, at a restaurant and proceeded to embarrass herself by telling Priyanka she knew her father, turns out, Rosie O’Donnell thought Priyanka was the daughter of author Deepak Chopra. She later posted two cringe-worthy video apologies, compounding her sins by referring to Priyanka as “someone Chopra” and “Chopra’s wife.”

In her Instagram note, Priyanka Chopra got candid about ignoring Rosie O’Donnell, whom she did not name. . “Hi everyone. A few thoughts.. I never took myself seriously to think that anyone would know who I am, or my work for that matter. But if you wanted to publicly apologize for a very awkward private encounter , I probably think it’s best to take the time to google my name before doing this or even try to contact me directly,” Priyanka wrote.

“We ALL deserve to be respected for our unique individuality and not to be called ‘somebody’ or ‘wife’, especially in a sincere apology. If we can learn to respect our differences authentically, the world in which we are raising our children, will be amazing,” concluded Priyanka Chopra.

In the videos she shared on Instagram this week, Rosie O’Donnell recounted being told by Priyanka at the restaurant that Chopra is a common Indian surname and that Deepak Chopra is not her father. In the second video, shared after comments about the first suggestion that Priyanka had been rude, Rosie O’Donnell said: People thought she was rude but she wasn’t, it was just embarrassing. She’s apparently a very well-known actress and more famous than he (Nick) said. So I’m sure it seemed weird to him at first. Anyway, Priyanka is her name. And I just want to apologize to her and anyone who thought it was inappropriate of me.”

She didn’t apologize for making a dismissive reference to Priyanka, who played a major role in the fourth Matrix movie last year, such as “someone Chopra” and “the Chopra woman”.

People seem to do it constantly for Priyanka Chopra, a superstar and a massively successful actor and entrepreneur. Last December, she schooled the Daily Mail which described her as ‘the wife of Nick Jonas’. Earlier last year she shredded an Australian reporter who questioned why Priyanka was able to announce the Oscar nominations. “I’d love to hear your thoughts on what qualifies someone. Here are my 60+ movie references for your expert consideration,” Priyanka tweeted, enclosing a rundown of her many movie credits.

The cup ran after Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas’ wedding in 2018 – in it, Priyanka was called a ‘global scammer’ and suggested Nick had been drawn into a ‘fraudulent relationship against his will’. The article was taken down after being roughed up and the journalist who wrote it apologized. Priyanka was also mistaken for Yukta Mookhey – both Miss World pageant winners – by an American network.

Priyanka Chopra, whose international credits include Quantico, Isn’t It Romantic, Baywatch and those of Netflix The white tiger, recently welcomed a baby girl with Nick Jonas. She has several projects on the schedule, including the series directed by Russo Brothers Citadel.

Non-Binary Blind ‘See For Me’ Star Skyler Davenport Helps Hollywood See Intersectionality https://carolchanning.org/non-binary-blind-see-for-me-star-skyler-davenport-helps-hollywood-see-intersectionality/ Thu, 17 Feb 2022 12:30:37 +0000 https://carolchanning.org/non-binary-blind-see-for-me-star-skyler-davenport-helps-hollywood-see-intersectionality/ Skyler Davenport as Sophie in See For Me IFC Midnight While it would be wrong to say, at least on camera, that women and racial minorities are invisible in Hollywood, the same cannot be said of smaller diversity segments such as performers with disabilities or those who identify as non-binary.

While it would be wrong to say, at least on camera, that women and racial minorities are invisible in Hollywood, the same cannot be said of smaller diversity segments such as performers with disabilities or those who identify as non-binary.

Intersectionality – the idea that individuals experience otherness and discrimination based on multiple intersecting identities, encompassing gender, race, religion, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation and disability, is also something something that does not receive enough consideration.

Born Kathrine Davenport, non-binary performer Skyler Davenport, who is also registered as blind, is a perfect example of why the entertainment industry needs to wake up and smell the coffee.

In their latest role in IFC’s home invasion thriller Midnight see for me Davenport wonderfully balances how these intertwined identities can be both over-emphasized and made entirely incidental at the same time.

Change of hours

Davenport, 29, opted to undergo what the LGBTQ community calls “superior surgery,” which involves a double mastectomy when she was 18.

Two years after living life in the body they dreamed of during their difficult teenage years, Davenport’s physiology began to change in a much less welcome way.

In 2012, they suffered severe and permanent neurological vision loss from a rare genetic condition known as hemiplegic migraine, which can develop into a type of stroke.

Despite this setback, Davenport continued his acting and voice-over career for video games and cartoons such as Final Fantasy and Pokemon. The Los Angeles-based actor’s on-screen credits include NCIS and Murder made me famous.

Take the lead

Directed by Randall Okita and filmed in Canada, see for mea modern take on the 1967 thriller Wait until nightfall starring Audrey Hepburn, was released last month and represents Davenport’s debut in a lead role.

They authentically portray blind former professional skier Sophie coming to terms with the fact that losing her sight has shattered her Olympic dreams.

Sophie takes a job as a house sitter at a secluded mansion and downloads the See For Me app after accidentally getting locked out of the property.

The app connects visually impaired people with sighted volunteers via a smartphone camera to receive guided assistance when needed.

Sophie partners with Kelly (Jessica Parker Kennedy), an army veteran and avid first-person shooter. Later, however, she becomes entirely dependent on her sighted guide in ways she never could have bargained for when thieves break into the house looking for a hidden safe.

keep it real

Although Davenport is cast authentically as Sophie, and the plot revolves entirely around her disability, the film doesn’t fall into the cliched trap of making Sophie’s disability entirely characteristic.

She’s multi-layered, and some might argue that she’s not entirely likable at times, especially when it comes to the plot twist of the film – without wanting to give away any spoilers.

Addressing the topic of casting disabled performers for disabled roles, Davenport told the lawyer earlier this year, “It’s not that you can’t be a good actor, and you can’t accurately describe it. But I think people who come into the world, and for some reason their being has decided to experience a disability… there’s something so special about it. It brings that little indescribable spark to the role that you’re just not going to have with someone who doesn’t live that day.

They further added, “I also think it gets different reactions from other actors. I don’t hit anyone who doesn’t throw that way. But in my opinion, why not you?

On the other hand, Davenport’s non-binary status receives no attention in the film, with the film’s production team completely unaware of how they identify before casting them in the role.

However, they remember a great experience landing at the airport in Canada to start filming:

“I didn’t even know the production team knew that I identified as non-binary,” says Davenport.

“Maybe my manager must have said something. The person at immigration who let me into the country said to me, ‘The production team has classified you as an agender. Are you accepting d ‘to be placed in the international system as having no sex?’

They continue: “I was afraid it might look like I was trying to get into the country withholding information about myself or something and it was so nice that they had it. done for me in advance.”

Speaking more broadly on the subject of wrestling with his gender identity as a youngster, Davenport says: “Growing up in Wisconsin in the mid-90s, I knew I felt very uncomfortable in a female body.”

“After I had the operation, when we talked about doing hormones, I just felt like it wasn’t me. It doesn’t seem right. It’s not that I wanted to be completely male and I didn’t want to be female either.

They continue: “I spent several years until I was introduced to the terms asexual and non-binary as orientations. And then I was just like, ‘Oh yeah, that’s it.’ In the end, I just wanted the surgery to make me androgynous. I know most people will perceive me as a woman and that’s fine.

“The operation was not to present myself in a certain way or to obtain a certain response. It was just for me,” says Davenport.

In the shorter term, Davenport hopes their starring role in see for me will help propel their career in front of the camera but also appreciates the multiplicity of identities that their video game work has enabled.

Talk to gay city news at the end of 2021, they said, “I am currently working on about five different video games. Voiceovers are pure fun. He always acts because the games are getting more and more [complex]. I do voice and face capture because the games are so real. I can play a 5 year old or 10 foot tall alien.

Identities probably can’t get more intersectional than this, but for Skyler Davenport, it’s just a road that’s already been well traveled.

They are colleagues and close friends, collaborators and muses, established icons and emerging talents. At least a handful are currently appearing on HBO Euphoria.

A casual Gerber selfie leads to the start of a new fashion trend; a musical record by Rodrigo boosts the career of another artist.

It is not always easy to place a recognizable actor in a film, but it is even more difficult when this actor is recognized by his “work” in a documentary. Judy Hill made a strong impression when she appeared in Roberto Minervini’s 2018 non-fiction film What will you do when the world is on fire?, who followed her and her community in the aftermath of Trump’s election and the murders of several blacks in the South in 2017. A moving portrait of people fighting for justice and peace, he also revealed the presence extraordinary that Hill naturally possesses – in the movie’s most touching and complex scene, she tearfully shares her own difficult past to help a young woman with drug addiction, and a conversation that started as a painful confession turns into an embrace. So it’s no surprise that Sean Baker chose her in his latest film, Red rocket. Known for his predilection for raw new talent, Baker contacted Hill after seeing her in Minervini’s film; Soon after, she was playing the role of a drug dealer in a movie about a stranded pornstar returning to her hometown of Texas.

As is typical of Baker’s films, the result is refreshing and eerie. The main protagonist, Mikey Saber, is played by actor and professional artist Simon Rex, who is best known for his appearances in the Horror movie franchise, its MTV tours and its alliances with the adult film industry. Although he’s an actor, he also brings real-life experience to the character. Besides Rex, however, Red rocket is populated by novices who are both themselves and a character. Hill plays Mikey’s boss, whom Mikey sells weed for, just like he had done before he left for Hollywood years before. As in Minervini’s film (and therefore in her life), she’s a businesswoman and beloved figure of her neighborhood, and her naturalism helps build the film’s uplifting and absurd tone: juxtaposed with the Mikey’s wild energy and incompetence, his ease and authenticity make Mikey seem real and yet out of the ordinary. Its presence, in both senses of the word, reinforces the suspension of disbelief.

From film to film Baker has evolved into a more narrative and entertaining cinema, but from the start he has always aimed his camera at people living on the fringes. “I think it’s a reaction to what I don’t see enough in American cinema and television, and also, it’s my way of exploring, of discovering my own country,” he said. . during a Q&A at the Viennale earlier this year. From the documentation of the immigrant experience in the years 2004 Go out to the life of New York counterfeiters Prince of broadway to produce a nuanced story centered on black trans sex workers with Mandarin, Baker achieved a level of Hollywood prestige by directing films about traditionally overlooked groups. And instead of throwing well-known faces to represent members of these groups, he relied on people who actually belong to them in real life, achieving an unusual level of authenticity in the process.

In his previous films, Baker’s use of non-actors brought him even closer to a documentary style. While Go out, about a Chinese immigrant delivering Chinese food around Manhattan, is hard to find, its making and principles are closely tied to Baker’s next film in New York City. The protagonists of Prince of broadway (2008) have all been portrayed by non-professionals, and its plot draws directly from them and their real lives. Ghanaian Lucky (Prince Adu) makes a living in New York City selling fake luxury bags and sneakers, and sees his life turned upside down when an ex-girlfriend tells him he’s the father of her child. With few means and wielding the camera himself, Baker achieves a sense of urban chaos similar to that of the Safdie brothers in Good time and Uncut Gems, but with more heart and hope for his characters. This kindness also extends to its performers: they always show the way, perhaps not mastering their destiny but at least their decisions. Realism is not obtained at the expense of the actors’ sense of themselves, but by and thanks to it.

With its unpredictability and concentration of people, New York City is a perfect setting for Baker’s experiential cinema: you hardly need a script, things just happen. This pandemonium recurs throughout Baker’s work, continuing into 2012 Starlet, in which the quieter streets of Los Angeles hide a more hidden mess. When 21-year-old Jane (Dree Hemingway) finds $ 10,000 hidden in a thermos flask she bought at a garage sale, she decides to pay off Sadie (Besedka Johnson), the old woman who sold it to her, in every way possible, which inevitably leads to confusion. While Hemingway is an actress, Johnson was not, and the script almost only forces her to react to what her co-star is doing: Sadie has no idea why this young woman suddenly insists on leading her. at the grocery store and join her for bingo on Friday night. , and the camaraderie that settles very slowly between them appears all the more authentic as it is made of small gestures, discreet moments when Johnson lets his guard down a little and Hemingway makes his way through his world. The spectator sees a relationship evolving, in a story but also in real time.

All of Baker’s films culminate with a chaotic scene of conflict and revelation, where actors often improvise and inject their own anxiety and disorientation into their performances. Starlet Comes to a head when Jane’s broke roommate Melissa (Stella Maeve, an actress) confronts her friend about spending all the money she’s found on plane tickets for herself and Sadie, and the howling match that unfolds feels uncomfortably real. Baker’s next film and his big hit, Mandarin (2015), meanwhile, begins with a conflict, or rather with a protagonist determined to have one, and the audience awaits the impending explosion. Led by first-time actresses Mya Taylor as Alexandra and Kitana Kiki Rodrurez as Sin-Dee, the film has the quality of a dramatic Instagram Story (or series of stories), years ago. Zola. Shooting on three iPhone 5s, Baker (again the film’s cinematographer, with Radium Cheung) translates the energy and anger that animates Sin-Dee with dynamic tracking shots, diving into the scene and approaching his characters to capture their revealing facial expressions. as well as the crazy pace of Los Angeles. The lenses of the phones, paired with an anamorphic adapter, give the film a fluid, digital quality that matches the charisma and quick-wittedness of the actors, and an almost fish-eye look that helps even out the performance of the actors and cast. non-actors: They all seem to be caught together in this crazy fishbowl, spinning around each other more or less aggressively.

When the big showdown occurs, the actors and newbies all work together in a cacophony of American slang and Armenian shouting: Sin-Dee and her boyfriend, Chester (James Ransone), are joined by taxi driver Razmik, portrayed by Baker regular Karren Karagulian. With his De Niro face and accent, Karagulian feels truer than the real thing, always at ease when dealing with non-professionals and subtly helping them do their best by doing his. Ransone is also a recurring actor and bases the film on his almost parody performance.

Unsurprisingly, the greatest actor Baker has ever worked with is also perhaps the least “Hollywood” performer in the industry. In 2017 The Florida project, Baker played Willem Dafoe as Bobby, the manager of a motel just outside of Walt Disney World, where low-income residents live for weeks or months at a time. Dafoe acts as the anchor of the film as he fixes faulty devices and watches over the misbehaving children who live on the premises, played by non-actors. The star of the film, Brooklynn Prince, playing Moonee, had acted before, but being only 6 years old at the time of filming, she was still natural and unaffected by years of training. Like a more modern and American version of Truffaut The 400 blows, The Florida project focuses on children and their hijinks, letting their spontaneity enrich each narrative beat. Relations between children and their parents also take center stage, most notably that between Moonee and her young mother, Halley, played by newcomer Bria Vinaite. In her scenes opposite Dafoe, Vinaite holds on and holds our attention as well as hers, and seeing Dafoe reacting with her never gets boring. Every moment is exciting.

As Baker’s films became more and more fun and had a higher production value, he maintained his awareness and interest in social reality. Red rocket continues Baker’s exploration of the lives of sex workers, especially porn actors, and studies them with curiosity and understanding. Mikey brags about his now-defunct career, because it gave him a sense of accomplishment and identity, and took him far from Texas. Forced to return to live with his ex-wife, Lexi (an exceptional Bree Elrod, whose only other merit is as a “patient” in the Shutter island), he faces another reality. Baker also continues to imbue his work with realism through his casting, not only with Rex but also with Brenda Deiss, an elderly non-actor with a gaunt physique who plays Lexi’s mother, Lil. Hiring a Hollywood actor for that part would have required a lot of makeup work, but more to the point, it just wouldn’t have worked. Deiss’s mannerisms and spaced-out demeanor make her memorable and believable. In his body and his movements, we see his story, in the same way that the unusual location of Texas City evokes a story of poverty, struggle and isolation.

Throwing real people to play versions of themselves is the opposite of relying on a method of action: there is no life experience to gain, only to channel. It also allows the professional actors that Baker chooses to do other than pretend to be who they are not; freed from the need to reinvent themselves, they can act literally and live in the moment with their co-creators, responding authentically to their personalities and drawing inspiration from them as people rather than characters. The results can be confusing and ethical questions arise, but these are just alternatives to the usual ones we have on representation and performance. Who should play the outcasts in the outcast movies? Sean Baker’s answer to this question differs from that of his peers, but that doesn’t mean it’s wrong.
