PostSubject: What classic Hollywood actress would Mao be?   Fri Apr 02, 2010 11:45 am

Since it's off-season, I've decided to do something fun cheers I came across a blog comment from a poster who compared Mao to Bette Davis because they both stand out for their uniqueness. So it gave me the idea to ask everyone here which classic actress do you feel Mao most resemble?

Personally, I think Mao shares many similarities with the great Lillian Gish, who was known for her etheral qualities. Also since she acted during the silent period, Lillian had that quiet and innocent presence that I also found in Mao. But of course this is just fun speculation. Mao is still uniquely Mao. flower

I'm not too familiar with old Hollywood, or many of it's actresses. Plus, Mao is Asian, which makes it even more difficult to compare her to someone like that. So I couldn't really give you much of an answer on this one!

Btw, should this topic be under The Voting Booth perhaps?

I moved the topic. Smile

Mao definitely reminds me of Audrey Hepburn - delicate, ladylike and very classy. Mao should skate to "My Fair Lady" soundtrack sometimes. flower

Oh good point! She DOES remind me a bit of her, now that you mention it. Especially in that one photo shoot where she's dressed up all elegant, with that up do. Alissa will always remind me of Audrey Hepburn too, because of her Sabrina program.

Thanks Oscilla Razz Since I didn't make a poll, I wasn't sure where exactly to put this thread.

Audrey Hepburn is one of my favorites. cat I would love Mao to skate to the dreamy "Moon River" Cloud 9

I thought the same exact thing when I saw the subject of this! Audrey Hepburn was the first thing that came to mind. Audrey and Mao even both studied ballet when they were small Very Happy

As for a male actor...Mao reminds me of Jimmy Stewart. They are both different from their "typically handsome" counterparts and are mild, kind, soft-spoken people but can really turn on the fierce factor when they need to Twisted Evil

I thought exactly about Hepburn since I watched "Sabrina" a couple of days ago. She has a sweet style just like Mao's.

With all due respect for her, I wouldn't choose Hepburn. Her charms and style does fit Mao, but I personally wouldn't choose her just for the fact she needed a ghost singer(i.e. 'My Fair Lady'). In that case I'd prefer Mao to be noticed as a Julie Andrews, who certainly never needed a ghost singer. Forgive me, Audrey fans (I know she was good at ballet, though she never had much of a chance to show it)!

But I'd like to think more of Mao as a Judy Garland type. Judy had it all; singing, dancing, acting. And however much she aged, I think she always had that innocent charm of hers' which overlaps with Mao alot. If you go and ask performers in Broadway even now, I'm sure some will still say they wanted to be like Judy in their childhood. I'd like it if some skaters would still speak of Mao like that, even long after she retires. flower

Hepburn, no doubt.
Plus, both share the same passion for animals cat :albino:
Bette Davis is my fave actress of all time but she had a very difficult personality, and this doesn't fit Mao at all.
Judy was amazing, but not as elegant as Hepburn in my opinion.

I was thinking that Mao's new exhibition dress reminded me of Audrey's style and what do you know, some one on youtube made this montage to "Moon River." I love how the person changes the tone to black & white when she starts skating, which gives the feeling of nostalgia. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ksUhPjsx_Uo

Hope this clip can cheer people up a bit from the tragedy that has dominated the news over this weekend.

If you enjoy watching classic films and have some time, please check out my "Skating in Old Hollywood" blog posts. It is a game where I try to pair a figure skater with a classic film star. Very Happy (The link of my blog is attached as my signature.) Thanks!
