Snap! goes the moment; a photograph is time travel, like the light of dead stars painting us with their warm, titanic blood. Parasitic kaleidoscopes and psychotropic glow worms stop me dead in my tracks. Aphids sucking the red off a rose, but for beauty I will gladly feed my life into the mouths of rainbows; their technicolor teeth cutting prisms and smiling benevolently on the pallid hue of the working class hero.”
Made her big break on the movie Precious with a role that won her an Academy Award for Best Actress. She also featured in Yelling to the Sky, Tower Heist, the seventh season of American Dad, a Foster the People music video and appeared on the tv show The Big C.

I beg to differ. She captures the eye like ruby, loves herself, is fearless and shes *beautiful*. Here captures nine different times of her slaying us out of many more.
