ah ok so basically
i have been on the film set with benedict all afternoon and he is genuinely the nicest person i have ever ever ever met.
firstly: he told me he’s not happy with the richard iii photos of him circulating on the internet. obviously, it’s a bit too late for it to be stopped but if people could refrain from taking anymore at future set locations he would probably really appreciate it.
secondly: he came over to me and said “can i speak to you for a second” (a second = 10 minutes in benedict time). he knows about my interest in media so we spoke about the film industry and he told me a bit about his background and how he deems himself equal to the whole production team, not superior (very humble).
thirdly: he got me behind the cameras as, and i quote, his “special guest”, which was absolutely amazing. i can’t thank him enough. after filming i went over to him to say thank you and he basically said “that’s really sweet of you / i’m so glad you enjoyed it / lovely to meet you”
i’m incredibly happy to have such a wonderful idol (who knows who i am !!!) THANK U BENEDICT
Don’t forget we have to wake up Green Day tomorrow.
Ok just a reminder to everyone: If you’re planning on tweeting billie joe armstrong “wake up” or something tomorrow, DON’T. The song is about his father’s death and so it’s really personal and treating it like a joke isn’t the right thing to do. Plus he’s asked so many times for people to stop and no one listens so yeah. Please don’t do that.
The woman on the left is a mother from Miami who was so desperate to feed her hungry family that she was trying to steal a lot of food.
The woman on the right is Miami-Dade County Police Officer Vicki Thomas. Officer Thomas was about to arrest Jessica Robles but changed her mind at the last minute.
Instead of arresting her, she bought Robles $100 worth of groceries:
“I made the decision to buy her some groceries because arresting her wasn’t going to solve the problem with her children being hungry.”
And there’s no denying they were hungry. Robles’ 12 year old daughter started crying when she told local TV station WSVN about how dire their situation was:
“[It’s] not fun to see my brother in the dirt hungry, asking for food, and we have to tell him, ‘There is nothing here.’”
Officer Thomas says she has no question that what she did was right:
“To see them go through the bags when we brought them in, it was like Christmas. That $100 to me was worth it.”
But Officer Thomas did have one request:
“The only thing I asked of her is, when she gets on her feet, that she help someone else out. And she said she would.”
And guess what? The story gets even better.
After word got out about what happened people donated another $700 for Jessica Robles to spend at the grocery store.
And then best of all a local business owner invited her in for an interview and ended up hiring her on the spot as a customer service rep.
She started crying when he told her:
“There’s no words how grateful I am that you took your time and helped somebody out. Especially somebody like me.”
And to think it all started with one veteran police officer trusting her “instinct” instead of going “by the book”.
