Headcanon: Ryder is actually a huge Shepard fan: she idolizes her a lot and wants to be just like her. What she doesn’t know is that she already took the first step: Shepard ate potato chips in bed as well.
For those of you who don’t know, Chyler came from a difficult past. She came from a broken family, her parents divorcing when she was 12. To cope, she became a drug addict and when asked what was her drug of choice when she was 17 to 19 years old, she replied: “Everything, there are a lot of times we really shouldn’t have survived. He (Nathan West, her now-husband) and I have literally been through hell and back” She started the recovery process when the director of Not Another Teen Movie told her she was becoming too thin while they were filming. It was a two year battle from drug addiction with Nathan, who she met when she was 16 and he was 20, the fight nearly cost them their lives.
“We went through about two years of complete obliteration. It came down to, ‘Do you want to choose to live, or do you want to choose to die? And we chose life.”
Don’t be surprised why she represents her character, Alex, so well when she herself is a bloody brilliant, resilient and strong person herself, if not more.
one of my fave things about australian politics is that it’s almost entirely made up of old white men who have no idea what they’re doing, no-one trusts them, they’re all racist fools who put us in debt, every single one of them has been thoroughly humiliated on tv at least once
and then there’s penny wong, a left-wing malaysian lesbian who is quite literally the only australian politician i know of never to have made a fool of herself. she’s never lost a debate. she is five feet of rage, climate change action, and whoop-ass. everyone i know wants her to be prime minister but she’s literally said she doesn’t think australia could handle it. i love her
