Dear Will Smith and Chris Rock.
Thank you! My name is Susie and I teach a movement class to help actors get out of character. It is something I felt was missing in my industry and felt that it should be added into the training and the professional jobs that actors do.
The other night, during the oscars, you exposed what I have all too well have been seeing. The pain that comes with this job and the mental health issues that need to be addressed.
I know that through that one MOVEMENT the entire world was privy to the pain you both are feeling in your careers. A career that has allowed you to achieve success but also to pay dearly for it.
Working with imagination and humor may be the two most powerful tools in MANIPULATION.
When we activate someone to laugh we then have the ability to shift their beliefs. When we convince people we are not who we are in order to share a story, we also activate the portal of influence in them as well.
Since no one needs to or really is allowed to pretend to be anyone anymore…then lets RESET the INDUSTRY!!!
If we start with love and healing as we embark on our work, then the manipulation is for good and for the audience to feel who THEY are….not who YOU want them to be.
I have done this walk…It is slower and less DRAMA but it is where the industry is going to go because what you shared was the end of an ERA….
Thank you for being the sacrificial Lambs
