Office-mate who loves CNN but doesn't understand how televisions work is destroyed by that which she loves most.
I work in a small office with only 6 people. The way the office is broken up I share my office with another person, so we’re essentially facing each other. It’s away from the other offices, so we’re kind of left to our own devices. I’ve been working here for about three years now, and have always gotten along with my office-mate. My old office-mate left to start a family, so I’ve been alone for a bit before they hired Marge.
Marge is what you’d find if you googled “worst office-mate.” She brings in smelly food she eats at her desk, she plays loud music in our shared space (even after being asked not to), she fights with the boss on every little thing, she’s nosy (always asking me where I’ve been when I walk back into the office, and I’ve literally caught her listening in at the bosses door). She asks me invasive questions, and when I finally snapped at her to mind her own business she acted like I’d personally assaulted her.
Long before joining 17, I already started working in the entertainment industry, it’s been around 18 years. Since I was two years old in China, I’ve appeared in TV shows, dramas, movies, and commercials as a child actor. I’ve also walked for a fashion show.
“The actress and American Cinematheque honoree pulls off the “toughest act” in show business.The toughest act in show business is how to maintain your core
central living self while submitting yourself to not only the
(sometimes) alien persona of a fictional character but to the relentless
forensics that is modern showbiz promotional flogging.Amy has cannily managed this better than most, partly because of her
unflagging, good-natured work ethic, but mostly because of a
level-headed, uninflated sense of herself, her priorities and what is
real and what is bullshit. She has a geiger counter of a bullshit meter,
and for such a polite person is not afraid to hold it up to the bloated
face of this business and let us all hear the ticking as loud as she
does. She won’t perform what is not real, and she won’t say what is not
true.I have seen her hold back so as not to hurt feelings, and I have seen
her curtail her tongue when it could (should?) give a lashing, but she
makes her point as much with what she doesn’t as what she does say.She is a sturdy girl, and a woman of many imaginative gifts: The
combo should take her to as long, long, long a career as she can stand
to give us.“ - Meryl Streep
“To act with her was to forget everything I was trying to do. I was lost. Lost in her eyes, lost in her talent.” - Tom Hanks on working with Amy Adams.
Jake Gyllenhaal calls Amy Adams’’s work, “a mind-bending study on
versatility. She’s a vessel for truth. She’s a wonderful person- full
of grace. Tonight, we honor a unicorn. A virtuoso talent with serious
“She’s so EFFING talented. Growing up with her movies filled me with so much. You see everything. I am so lucky to have been seen by you. You’re so far from regular.” - Kristen Stewart
“She broke our hearts with authenticity and humanity. ARRIVAL owes every
bit of its success to Amy. She wrote soul to the movie. She’s an angel
to me.” - Denis Villeneuve
thought the director had caught lightning in a bottle- the lightning
was Amy Adams. She saw something no one else had seen. You’re one of the
most spectacular actors of this generation.”
- Chris Messina
woman looking sweet and innoncent over there…turns into a beast when
she gets anywhere near a karaoke machine. This side of Amy still
frightens me to this day.”
- Justin Timberlake
“She somehow maintains that incredible vulnerability. I thank you, Amy, for being such an incredible colleague. Like a lot of moviegoers, I love Amy Adams.” - Natalie Portman
“The fact that you’re still searching for meaning and for significance
is a great inspiration to me.” - Michael Shannon
“Maybe something like you really like Cole but you think he likes Lili and he thinks you like KJ and he gets super jealous and idk then somehow he confesses his feelings hehe xx” –Anonymous
Imagine: Ever since being hired to work on the cast of Riverdale you’ve had more than professional feelings for your co-star, Cole Sprouse. His on-screen and potentially off-screen romance with Lili Reinhart complicates things, and you find solace in your friendship with KJ Apa. In the end, everyone’s wires get crossed.
You watched your coworkers Lili and Cole as they did the latest interview in promotion of Riverdale Season 2. The interviewers teased Lili incessantly about “Bughead” and the makeout scene from the Season 1 finale. Cole joined in on the teasing, laughing all the while. Lili blushed, embarrassed.
You leaned against the wall of the viewing gallery, arms crossed. Your eyes narrowed at the interaction.
“Whoa there, Serpent girl,” KJ joked, leaning up next to you. “Getting into your role a little too much?”
Little did the interviewers know that the girl watching from afar was going to be the newest upcoming star in Riverdale as the female South Side Serpent counterpart to Jughead, and Betty’s rival as his love interest. While you were ordered to keep mum on the part until your big reveal, your agent asked that you shadow the others as they interviewed so that you could prepare for the fame that would come with your first big acting gig.
You turned to him, grinning good-naturedly. “Just learning from the best.”
Cole put an arm around Lili and your expression soured. KJ laughed, and you glared at him, hoping the noise didn’t interrupt the recording.
“Would you like to learn from someone in particular?” KJ asked, waggling his eyebrows suggestively.
Your face reddened. Part of your preparation for the role included doing a lot of one-on-one character training with Cole to build your chemistry. Cole’s idea of “character training” was not reading lines but instead spending inordinate amounts of time together going on walks, eating out, and other discrete adventures. To make things worse, his sincere blue eyes made your heart jump a little bit more than you’d like to admit.
You knew Cole and Lili were close long before you’d met him. You knew they were “couple goals” on his Snapchat and their relationship on the show was the biggest ship on teenage-targeted television. It didn’t mean you have to like it.
