I used to say I lived my life a quarter mile at a time and I think that’s why we were brothers. Because you did, too. No matter where you are, whether it’s a quarter mile away, or half way across the world. You’ll always be with me and you’ll always be my brother.
I need to rant about this entire James Gunn thing:
Y'all are so triggered over the guardians cast and calling them terrible things because they are defending James Gunn. So here is the thing, ACTUAL pedophiles and sexually harassing big stars were outed in Hollywood and many people went against them including their costars.
Joking about pedophilia doesn’t make James a pedophile, it just makes him a person with a terrible sense or humour. Also they were TEN YEARS AGO. You aren’t even the same as you were a year ago, people change and evolve and judging someone for unforgivable things they said a decade ago is just a big no. And he actually came out by himself and apologized for his previous behavior when nobody called him out for it so why are you all reacting now.
I am 100% against pedophilia or sexual harassment, I lost every last bit of respect for Melanie Martinez when the entire ‘her raping her friend’ thing came out. But with James Gunn I just cringed because they were really, really bad jokes.
I have a friend who makes kinda racist and offensive jokes and I actually get offended sometimes by them, but if someone acted in a racist manner towards someone in front of her she would call them out for it and drag their asses and she is actually the nicest person I know to everyone around her. Having a dark, weird, terrible sense of humour doesn’t make you genuinly a bad person.
So all of you attacking every single member of the cast for supporting him is just rude. An entire fucking cast is against that decision and they say that he is a good person, and it might cost them their jobs since they are basically going against the company decision, and then you come saying:
“James Gunn is a pedophile rapist and the entire cast of GOTG are too because they support him. Unfollowed and disappointed, you all are terrible people”
Like.. they are people who have worked with him and known him for years, meanwhile all you know about him is things you heard from the media so who are you to judge them and be rude to them like that?
I understand the anger towards James but now I am going through the instagram comments and there is so much anger for the cast its just like… what?
So no, the cast isn’t terrible.They wouldn’t go against the company they are hired for and post a statement like that knowing that it will anger their fans and cost them a lot if James Gunn wasn’t a good person and that entire firing him thing is BS.
Also, lets be honest gotg 3 is pretty much screwed without him, he is so passionate about what he does and I say he should be given a second chance. Plus there are a lot of actual pedophiles in disney and they know about it
There is something wrong with actor health according to the BMI (males edition)
Dwayne Johnson: 45 yo, 6′5″, 260 lbs (obese)
Vin Diesel: 50 yo, 6′0″, 225 lbs (obese)
Tome Cruise: 5′7″, 55 yo, 170 lbs (overweight)
I was at the local clinic getting a check up and my doctor asked me to do a fasting blood draw. I absolutely hate this because I am terrible with blood and I always feel nauseous and faint This happens to me every year because I am severely overweight and my doctor pulls out the BMI chart to show me how bad it is. I have weighed as much as 380lbs at a mere 6′3″ so my BMI reached almost 50 which meant I was dying. I have lost weight (I have not grown any taller though) and my BMI is in the 30s, but my doctor seems to think that I am dying at any moment and my liver function will halt completely with a slight breeze (my blood tests say otherwise every year). My doctor wants me to get down to a “healthy” weight according to the BMI, which would be between 150 and 190 lbs. At my absolute healthiest (23 and working out 5 days a week), I weighed 225 lbs and would have been considered overweight. I would have to be deathly skinny to attain that BMI set weight goal. I have come to terms with the fact that I am a really big guy and that I won’t be some fit actor. However, it occurred to me that fit actors might not be “healthy” either.
Above are pictures of well known actors that I would consider in remarkably good shape, especially for their age. It is strange to me that both Dwayne Johnson and Vin Diesel would be considered obese. Even Tom Cruise would be considered overweight. I delved a little deeper and made a list of male actors and how they would be classified according to reported body stats:
Chris Evans (overweight)
Brad Pitt (borderline overweight)
Gerard Butler (overweight)
Daniel Craig (overweight)
Micheal Cera (healthy)
Chris Pratt (morbidly obese in Parks and Rec but down to overweight for Guardians of the Galaxy)
All James Bond actors would have been considered overweight or borderline overweight during the making of their movies
This little research project actually raised more questions than answers for me (is the BMI wrong, are actors actually fat, are actors lying about their stats, should the BMI be adjusted, are actors not actually healthy), but one thing that I came away with is I should not to let a number define me. I am sluggish and can’t do all the things that I want to do so I want to continue to lose weight. However, when I get to a point where I am active and feel good and enjoy my life, I am going to stop no matter what the actual number of pounds or BMI points is. Let your body tell you what your weight should be and don’t let your self esteem be based on a number.
