I subscribe to Gwyneth Paltrow’s newsletter, Goop. It is a bit out of touch with reality, but y’all, she’s a sweet lady with a kind heart. Today she sent out a photo diary of her weekend promoting her newest film. I never realized how much effort goes into promoting a movie. Twenty-five six-minute TV interviews?!I could never do that.
I’ve had similar reactions when watching America’s Next Top Model, The Rachel Zoe Project, and this past season of American Idol, which featured contestants working with producers. Sometimes you need to watch someone who is really good at their craft in order to understand the intelligence and effort required. So, Gwyneth, Tyra, Rachel, and Jimmy, thank you for reminding me acting, modeling, styling, and producing require actual talent and skill.
