Do You Have a "Movie Moment"?

Do you get bored in the shower? How about when you're doing a mindless task, like housecleaning? I do. To combat that boredom, I imagine myself as a character in a movie. Sometimes the movies are familiar, sometimes it's a story I make up myself. I do this in the shower nearly every day, so I have mentally starred in thousands of films at this point.

After all those starring roles, though, I do have a favorite:


Where do I start? The voice, the princess dress, the hair...this scene has it all. She's 16 and beautiful, AND two smokin' hot men are going to be fighting for her throughout the duration of the movie. How much better could it get? I have imagined myself in that dress, singing that song, about a million times. My first runner-up is the "Summer Lovin'" scene from Grease.

Do you have a "movie moment"? If you do, tell me in the comments. I know I'm not the only one who does this, because I'm sure my sister would say I stole her scene.

My imagination has a way of turning on at random. When I do wonder off into "I wish I were doing this instead of what I'm actually doing" land, it's usually a gritty drama that involves me dropping knowledge with conviction and the occasional street slang.

my acting > Denzel Washington, Morgan Freeman and Sidney Poitier combined.

Oooooh, that is a moment! Those things in her hair!~ We love that movie at our house.

I have starred many times opposite Johnny Depp ... in movies and in real life.

C.B. Jones: I'm usually in a charming fish-out-of-water romantic comedy-type film, although I've thought up a couple of thrillers, too.

jenniferw: Johnny Depp is a good one! My taste in leading men is pretty eclectic--they've varied from Gerard Butler to Steve Martin.
