I swear, I am going to reblog this the entire time I see it.
His face visibly poses a problem for him. If it were up to him, Mads Mikkelsen would change it. The Danish actor considered hiring a surgeon and even, he said, resorting to acid. […] In this hated face, there is first, according to the actor, the cheekbones. “All too prominent ” he says. Then, huge eyes, neither round nor really quite oval, “an unlikely geometry in fact”. “I am told they [make somebody depressed, sad, unhappy]*, and that’s probably right.” And finally, a huge mouth, in harmony with his eyes. “Directors have always told me it was the jaw of a predator, a very bad guy. This is probably one of the reasons why I inherited the role of Hannibal Lecter, the cannibalistic doctor created by Thomas Harris for the television series “Hannibal.” […] When he went back to Canada for the filming of the second season of “Hannibal”, Mads Mikkelsen asked to have a mirror in his dressing room. For once, the goal was to look at his face—not to destroy it. “Lecter is a man who sees beauty in ugliness. His values are reversed.” In the skin of this monster, Mads Mikkelsen can probably finally appreciate [his face].
Son visage lui pose visiblement un problème. Si cela ne tenait qu’à lui, Mads Mikkelsen en changerait. L’acteur danois a d’ailleurs songé à faire appel à un chirurgien et même, dit-il, à recourir au vitriol. […] Dans ce visage honni, il y a d’abord, selon l’acteur, ses pommettes saillantes. «Bien trop proéminentes», estime-t-il. Ensuite, ses yeux immenses, ni vraiment ronds ni tout à fait ovales, «à la géométrie improbable en fait». «On m’explique qu’ils filent le bourdon*, et c’est probablement juste.» Et, pour finir, une bouche démesurée, en harmonie avec son regard. «Les réalisateurs m’ont toujours expliqué qu’il s’agissait de la mâchoire d’un prédateur, d’un très sale type. C’est sans doute l’une des raisons pour lesquelles j’ai hérité du rôle d’Hannibal Lecter, le médecin anthropophage créé par Thomas Harris pour la série télévisée “Hannibal”.» […] Quand il a repris le chemin du Canada, pour le tournage de la deuxième saison d’«Hannibal», Mads Mikkelsen a demandé à avoir un miroir dans sa loge. Pour une fois, l’objectif était de se regarder – pas de se détruire. «Lecter est un homme qui voit la beauté dans la laideur. Ses valeurs sont inversées.» Dans la peau de ce monstre, Mads Mikkelsen peut sans doute enfin s’apprécier.
*filent le bourdon is an expression which means to make someone sad

This interview frames Mads’s career in terms of his face and how it is regarded by both him and others. The occasion of the interview is the French release of the film, The Salvation, but it discusses his other films, his relationship with Nicholas Winding Refn and Lars Von Trier. A better translation would be appreciated!
It sounds really simple but it’s already helped me a lot.
Make a list of :
Four things you hear
Three things you feel
Two things you smell
One thing you taste
And repeat this list to yourself five times.
I know it sounds super simple and I’m sure a lot of people do it already, but if it helps anyone, then it’s worth sharing.
Remember when they used to say that gay marriage ruins the sanctity of the institution?
Straight people are fucking weird.
"Sanctity of marriage" has only ever meant "marriage looking like I want it to, from the outside, which is as far as anyone should ever get into anyone else’s marriage, unless it’s me, making sure yours is exactly the kind of marriage I think a marriage should be."
Is anyone else really interested to see how this actually plays out as an experiment?
I need you to understand that i haven’t had time to process that #DragonCon is a thing I’ll be attending, and not just a thing I’ve been planning for 6 months.
That way, when you see me freak out about shit like what’s going to happen at the Hannibal Fannibal Pannibal, or having kellysue AND laurennmcc on one of our most anticipated panels of the year, you’ll get that it’s because it literally JUST at that moment became real to me.
It’s all happening.
Personally, I can’t wait to see you and Cleolinda fannibal-nerding all over one another, it’s going to be adorable. :3
Hey everyone. I just got this vulture in. Haven’t done an exam on him yet (waiting on an extra pair of hands) but it sounds like he was grounded in a neighborhood in Greenville for about 5 days. He will most likely require care from someone who knows more about vultures. The problem is, we cannot afford to transport this guy right now. We need help! Many of you know that we do this work voluntarily and pay for everything out of pocket. If you can, please consider donating to our rescue! This vulture really needs your help! You can donate any amount of money through Paypal, to the email address: email@example.com!
If all of my followers donated just 50 cents it would be more than enough to pay for this bird to get the help he needs! Please donate!
Thank you to everyone who reblogged!
Unfortunately we have still only received $3 to help this guy out!
This is not enough to get the vulture the care he needs! Please help!
I was finally able to do an examination on him and discovered a compound fracture in his left wing elbow joint. This is a serious injury - especially since it is 5 days old now, and he is severely emaciated because of it!
Listen guys, I know it isn’t the usual ‘cute’ animal that is fun to reblog and support. Like a kitten or a dog. But every animal deserves a happy, healthy live. this guy is suffering with pain and starvation and he needs help.
Reblog and donate if you can. It won’t even take that much.
