The Famous People Tag 2014

November 21, 2014 8 Comments

Hello! For all you fellow movie buffs out there, you may enjoy this tag that Rachel (aka Hamlette) of Hamlette’s Soiloquy tags me in, which is the Famous People Tag. THANK YOU for the tag, Rachel. Reading through the questions seemed like a fun idea so I was like, “why not!” And here we are.


THE FAMOUS PEOPLE TAG


#1 Who’s your favourite singer/group? Oh, dear. Why do we have to start off with such a tough question? As a teen all of my groups or singers were Christian artists whereas now I’m in the country phase of my life or the sort of music on Taylor Swift’s recent 1989 which I am sorry, but I’m loving the more I listen to said album.

#2 If your favourite male actor was in the same room as you right now, what would your reaction be? Um, it wouldn’t be anything to write home about I am sure. I’d probably be too unsure or disbelieving to say a word. In other words, I’d be mute.

#3 Is there a famous person you used to love but (due to something they have done in their life) you’ve suddenly changed your mind? As a kid, we often saw all of the movies Lindsay Lohan was in and in The Parent Trap she is cute, now it’s sad to see how far she’s fallen from that seemingly bright and happy kid.

Julianne Hough is another star I like more prior to her becoming a DWTS judge. I’d read an article about her way back when and she sounded relatively grounded, but as a judge, she doesn’t cut it. Though to be honest it doesn’t sway me in terms of still enjoying her movies or music. Honestly, most of the time, what an actor says doesn’t easily sway me because honestly several of my favorite actors say things in interviews I think is ridiculous, but if I like their movies… well, I still watch them.

#4 Name a famous person you like who’s name starts with a V. Does Veronica Mars count as a famous person? Kidding. Vin Diesel – that’s the first actor/famous person who came to mind. Oh, or there’s Queen Victoria. Love how the A&E miniseries portrays her.

#5 What’s one of your favourite red-carpet dresses? I don’t follow the Red Carpet religiously, though do occasionally flip through a slideshow if one catches my eye… so, I did find this dress worn by Jenna Dewan-Tatum at last year’s Oscars. Not sure I love everything about it, but the biggest thing that caught my eye was it’s not strapless! Like, wow, that’s a switch.

#6 Who’s your favourite Royal person? Honestly, I don’t think I have a favorite royal person. I mean sure William and Kate are fabulous to see in People magazine or thereabouts, but I’m not a real royal fangirl.

#7 Who’s your favourite child actor/tress Probably someone like Shirley Temple whose films I watched all the time growing up.

#8 Is there an actor/actress [whose private lives you respect]? A private life is just that so it’s hard to know how the famous live in their day-to-day lives, though what I know of them, I respect people like Tim Tebow, Candace Cameron Bure, the Duck Dynasty family (they have been a shining example on DWTS this season – particularly Sadie) and the like because they aren’t afraid to publicly share their beliefs.

#9 Do you think that the actors/actresses have improved these last 100 years? That’s not really something I’ve thought about I suppose. I think for the kind of movies I generally enjoy, the actors are talented. Then there is someone like Matthew McConaughey (I know a lot of people don’t care for him) who is type cast but let me tell you, he can act; watching him in his more “serious” dramatic roles prove that.

#10 What’s the weirdest famous-people name? None are coming to mind.

#11 Do you think you look like a famous person? Which one(s)? Um, no. Not even close.

#12 Share your favourite famous-person quote. Unknown. I don’t really have a stash of favorite quotes – I’ll see something in a store on pretty wall décor and like it, but I don’t have something I live by as a quote though I do think C.S. Lewis has some fabulous stuff.

#13 Who’s your favourite dancer? The dancers on DWTS are the only dancers who come to mind; I like Mark Ballas, Derek Hough and many of the “normal” cast dancers as well.

#14 Why is your favourite actress your favourite one? When did you decide that she was your favourite? I have SO many favorite actresses, I don’t think I could pick one though I suppose if I had too, I’d pick Jennifer Lawrence (for the purposes of today’s post) or maybe Amy Adams. I’m not sure the defining moment when I realize their respective work is that good, but both of them are very versatile which to me seems the sign of a great actress.

#15 Have you ever met/seen/been close to a famous person? Does shaking a Russian ice dancing couple’s hands count? My parents did take us to a Stars on Ice show when we were young teens (back in the day when figure skating and obsessive were in the same sentance) and at the end of the show, the stars came along the front row seats and shook everyone’s hands – this couple had our row. :)

That’s a wrap!  Now, it’s YOUR turn. Want to join in? If so copy the list of questions below and if you join the party, come by to leave your link as I’d love to read your answers and post! Have fun!

    Fun!!! Count me in, I'll do this tonight! I like Mark and I love those Chmerkovskiy brothers :) I use to love Ice Skating that would be neat to see in person.

    • Rissi November 21, 2014 at 7:29 PM

      Awesome! I'll definitely have to visit your blog next week to read it, Shannon; it was indeed a fun tag and I appreciate the chance to take part. :)

    Just watched Intersteller with Matthew McConaughey, last night. I know he used to be a lame heart-throb, but seriously he's stepping up his game! He was amazing in Interstellar!!

    • Rissi November 24, 2014 at 6:34 PM

      Haven't seen Matthew in that, but I agree, Evelyn. The more serious roles I've seen him in are fantastic! :)

  • Bekah M. November 26, 2014 at 8:57 PM

    Hey Rissi! I haven't really been around the "blogosphere" lately, but I'm having a TON of fun catching up on your blog. Especially this post is just too fun! Again I'm amazed at the similarities between us…I would of totally picked Taylor Swift, Jennifer Lawrence, Matthew McConaughey, Lindsay Lohan, etc. Lol. Great blog tag!! :)

    • Rissi November 28, 2014 at 4:28 PM

      Hi, Bekah! I'm glad to see you back, girl. :) Thanks – as always – for visiting Dreaming Under the Same Moon and for being a part of its readership. You're welcome anytime.

      I had fun with this one! It took me a while to get it up, but I'm glad I finally did – and how cool; it's fun to know we'd have similar answers, friend. :)

    I love tags and I decided to participate in this one. I love Amy Adams too but I forgot to add her to my post.

    • Rissi December 1, 2014 at 3:44 AM

      Yay! Thanks, Carlyn for sharing. I'll definitely be sure to read your tag this week – this was a new one for me, yet quite fun! :)
