Praying that she doesn’t wake up Christopher, Madeleine takes one slow, hesitant step out of the guest room and into the dark, deserted hallway. The bamboo floor creaks softly beneath her slippers, but Kit’s steady snoring continues unabated. With a sigh of relief, she takes another step and listens, and then another and another, repeating the process until at last she arrives safely in the kitchen.
Flipping on the lights, Maddie hums to herself as she digs through Kit’s well-stocked refrigerator. She has been craving a stack of banana pancakes all night now, and her stomach refuses to let her rest until it’s been satisfied.
Christopher watches her from the corner, a silent smile playing on his lips. She looks so delightfully domestic as she cracks the eggs and mixes the batter that he almost hates to interrupt her. Almost.
“Making me breakfast in bed?” he whispers as he drapes his arms around Madeleine’s shoulders.
Maddie clenches her jaw, stiffening beneath his all too friendly embrace. “What are you doing awake?” she snaps.
“I could ask you the same thing.”
“I was hungry,” she replies with an irritated shrug.
Moving his hand suggestively down her shirt, Kit smirks and says, “Me too, babe. Me too.”
Honestly, I only just opened my tumblr and all I’ve been seeing is news about Bradley’s nose job and pictures comparing what he looked like a year ago or something and I would just like to say something:
You don’t have a right to assume why someone did something for themselves. It’s none of your fucking business. No, your poor little heart is not going to break because Bradley James got a nose job. Apologies for the bluntness, but I think I need to be blunt here.
Yes, he moved to LA, but just because he got plastic surgery (MINOR SURGERY, AT THAT) after changing locations doesn’t particularly mean he’s ‘hanging around the wrong people’ or some shit like that. Even if he was, it would still be none of your business because YOU DON’T KNOW HIM. YOUR OPINION LITERALLY DOESN’T MATTER TO HIM WHATSOEVER, I HATE TO BREAK IT TO YOU.
Sure, it’s different. Sure, it was sudden, but for all we knew, maybe that was the one thing he was the most self-conscious about. We all have flaws in our minds that we think of constantly and wait until the day you can finally change that one thing that you hate so much. Perhaps that was the case, perhaps not. If I’m going to be honest, he’s just very fortunate the nose job was a good one. Of course, to all us fans, it’s very new and different and it’ll take a while getting completely used to it, because honestly, it’s part of the guy’s FACE, so it’s gonna be noticeable.
BUT it still looks really good. I’ve seen so many whiny posts saying ‘ooh Bradley’s hanging around with stupid Americans that convinced him to get it done” or “ooh he did it to fit in after he moved to LA” but honestly, if he really WAS hanging around the wrong people, he probably wouldn’t have found an excellent plastic surgeon to get it done so nicely. He was probably nervous about the entire procedure and is most likely still self-conscious about how it turned out, no matter how much he may like it. Who wouldn’t be? Also, this shit costs a LOT of money, so he was most definitely giving it a lot of thought beforehand.
Bradley isn’t stupid. He knows he’s got a relatively large and active fanbase on multiple media platforms all over the world. That means he probably understood said fans would notice right away, and would judge him the moment he showed up in public with cameras flashing. That’s exactly what happened – I’ve already seen stuff on facebook, twitter, and his entire tag on tumblr has essentially blown up. All of you are judging him like we’re all in middle school and the new girl got a weird haircut over the weekend or something.
Grow up. Show him respect and support, because something like this is a personal choice and it’s none of your business. No, I really don’t think this minor surgery is going to set boys and girls into hysterics because it damages THEIR self-esteem: Bradley was already super lovely and good looking, and now he’s gone and changed something minor about himself, OH HEAVENS ME, WHAT SHALL WE DO? Yes, I think the way his nose looked originally gave him character (and honestly, I never gave it much thought in regards to it being anything but just a nose bc I’ve always thought him to be attractive irregardless) but I also think the new one looks great on him. It actually looks natural, which, for a lot of poor unfortunate souls, is difficult to achieve when not working with an efficient and skilled professional.
For all we know, maybe Bradley was bullied for his nose during childhood and finally decided to change it. Or maybe he wasn’t and he simply hated the way it looked. There’s a girl with the same issue at my school, and I’m not sure if she was bullied for it much or not, but either way, I knew she hated the way it looked. Why? Because, out of the blue, she got a nose job, showed up to school with the bandage still on like the brave little soldier she was one morning, and it looked really great. It looked natural. And you know what? She was happy. I hardly know her, but from how I see her, she loved the way her nose looked afterward (it also helped a lot that no one gave her shit about it).
I want that to happen for Bradley. I want him to have the relief of something so altering look so good. I want him to be happy with the way he looks. I also want him to know that his fans are supportive in him because what he did has not harmed anyone, not himself, not his fans, not his coworkers. It was a personal choice, and I’m proud of him. He had to be brave to decide to do it for himself.
Nose jobs aren’t a big deal.
Now stop giving him shit and leave it be. It’s just a nose. And it’s not yours. Calm the fuck down.
I am sorry to be a party pooper but Briana having a rhinoplasty, a mandibular angle reduction and a lip augmentation surgery with seemingly minimal recovery time is impossible and, if it was done it can be considered a modern day cosmetic surgery miracle. I am not claiming to be an expert - I am still in general medicine but from what knowledge I’ve got of the plastic surgery field it doesn’t seem like she’s undergone surgery. I am all about debunking babygate but this I’ll take with a grain of salt.
because I heard my housemates commenting about it and I figured more people might be thinking like them and it’s not ok
Do Not shame people who get Plastic Surgery!
First of all, it has nothing to do with you, them getting plastic surgery does not affect you in any way, shape or form, so you have no right to talk about it. Not to mention, it makes no sense that you would complain.
If a person gets plastic surgery, it’s because they want to look different, because they want to change something they don’t like about themselves, because they’re uncomfortable with how they look.
Sure some only do it for attention, and even that is fine. Why do you have to pick on someone for changing their nose or boob size? It’s like telling someone he looks fake because he got a haircut or a new pierce. It makes no sense.
So, please, do not shame people who get plastic surgery.
the other night i was fully like, “fuck yeah, i am so hot, i am so lucky to look like me”, but today i’m like “fuck i hate myself, i hate my chin, i hate my skin, i hate everythign, i’m so ugly i need plastic surgery”…. its insane what our minds do to us. i’m not even sure what i really think of myself because i’m constantly in this battle with my own mind and its exhausting and sad.
This is my thesis film SKINNY! I finished it in the spring of 2013 at SVA.
It’s not perfect but I’m glad I finished something that I can be proud to show people! This film means a whole bunch to me so please spread this around to your friends who love Burlesque, Dancing, and people who an shake their ass!
*Directors Note* This film is Not Anti-Plastic Surgery, its Anti-Taking Advantage of Someone While in a Weakened Emotional State.
