QUESTION OF THE DAY

Working 7-12's for weeks at a time doesn't leave much blogging time nor subjects fit to blog about, so I'm reposting an old entry that got some interesting comments. OK people, answer this:

WHAT FAMOUS PERSON, ALIVE OR DECEASED, DO YOU ADMIRE THE MOST?
My answer, hands down, would have to be Katharine Hepburn. If I could be any kind of woman that I wanted, Katharine would be my role model. I've adored her ever since I was young and will continue to do so as long as I live.

Instead of trying to tell you all the reasons why, I'm going to refer you to the article, The Devine Ms. H, written by Zadie Smith at the time of Katharine's death. Zadie gives all the right reasons to admire Kate and does so much better than I ever could.

Katharine Hepburn; beautiful until the day she died & never once did anything just because she was supposed to. She lived life on her terms, refused to change herself to suit the movie Moguls, loved whom she wanted regardless of the fact that he was married or of others opinions, and defied Hollywood or anyone else to say anything about it. What better role model could you ask for?

Now, what famous person do you admire the most?
