You Wish You Were Them, But You’re Not

May 30th, 2006 // 5 Comments

It seems that many have fallen under the spell of the acting world in more ways than one.

Margherita Missoni, Italian socialite, heiress to the Missoni fashion empire, and (surprise, surprise) face of Missoni’s new fragrance, has taken the fashion world by storm, much like her other Social Rank competitors. Most recently, though, she has decided to dabble in the acting bug that has always been a temptation for many of the world’s elite. Ivanka Trump, aka #16, could be considered a thespian, that is, if she hadn’t acted as “herself” in every television and film opportunity given to her. There should be no theatrical challenge in playing yourself, Ms. Trump. Missoni just finished performing in Jean Genet‘s controversial The Maids with fellow Lee Strasberg Theater and Film Institute classmate and supermodel Mariacarla Boscono, based on a true story of two maids who kill their mistress. Lydia Hearst is also currently starring in, and co-producing, After School, once again stumping me as to how she gets it all done. I freely support her in her campaign to win Social Rank. That is, until I see the film, in which case, I may have to reconsider my position.

I would congratulate all of the aforementioned ladies, except that renaissance women make me very bitter, as I for one, cannot conquer the world as they can. Or afford a Balenciaga “Le Dix” motorcycle purse in lime green. Someone please help me with that, by the way.

Sorry to be cliché with this line, but, “across the pond” England is experiencing some male-to-female tremors in multiple ways. It seems that this has nothing to do with acting, and yet it does. Socialite Jemima Khan is in relationship turmoil with her boyfriend, actor Hugh Grant. It seems Hugh has a tiny obsession with his art imitating his life, if you catch my drift. If you don’t catch my drift, please watch every Hugh Grant movie ever produced. Moving on, Prince William was caught in a literally sticky (from lip gloss, of course) situation with ex-Atomic Kitten, Natasha Hamilton. He supposedly leaned in to kiss her cheek and she slipped him the tongue. Not very tactful when you want to snag a royal. Besides, he’s starting to bald.

If you want my opinion, I say get Prince Harry while he’s young. He’s been looking quite delicious lately, and I approve.

    I believe the correct form of the headline you devised is, “You wish you were they, but you are not.” A small matter, of course, although when attempting to criticize someone it is preferable to do so from a position of unassailable wisdom rather than from the position of an uneducated fool.
