July 2010 issue of Vanity Fair reports a poll done through CBS which included the question:
If you could live in a movie for one day, whose life would you want to live ?
The choice of eight included three females;
Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City
Ilsa Lund (Ingrid Bergman’s character) in Casablanca
Lara Croft in Tomb raider.
4% of male respondents chose Carrie.
3% of male respondents chose Ilsa
1% of male respondents chose Lara.
That’s 8% of males wanting female roles. Pretty good, eh ?
Moi, I guess I’d have gone for Carrie, but I’d would rather be Cynthia Nixon if she had been a choice or, above all, Grace Kelly in any role and for a lot longer than one day.
