  •  Hi wader. I watched her speech. (13+ / 0-)

    To tell you the truth, I thought she "came out" a long time ago.

    I didn't realize she has been performing for audiences since she was 3 years old. That's 47 years in the public eye.

    •  And, that's much of why I give her leeway (5+ / 0-)

      Her obvious fetish with privacy seems a direct reaction to all those years in the public eye, especially across so many challenging roles that seemed to define her personality to the public, performance to performance.  Just ask John Hinckley, Jr.

      At the same time, she often displays a sharp intellect and is able to move into a character (or characterization) with practiced ease, it seems.  I feel her public persona is flavored by all of these things, so she's somewhat scattered.

      This might partially explain the Mel Gibson thing, another actor whose private life became notoriously and disgustingly public more than once in recent years.
