What does your muse look like?

For director Pedro Almodovar, it's Penelope Cruz

Sylvia was Marcello's muse in La Dolce Vita

Quentin Tarantino adores Uma Thurman

Grace Kelly was Hitchcock's inspiration

In American Beauty, Mena Suvari played Kevin Spacey's muse

For Martin Scorcese, Leonardo DiCaprio (and Robert DeNiro) are his muses
Director Federico Fellini found himself in Marcello Mastroianni
Audrey Hepburn was it for designer Givenchy
And of course, my most favorite muse in film history: Claudia Cardinale in 8 1/2

Who is your muse?

  1. I love this post "Claudia!" ;-) It was just the sort of thing I am in the mood for this fabulous Sunday morning! I love it when you share your love of old films and classic actors.

    In film, my muse is Vivien Leigh as Scarlett O'Hara but of course! In modern day film, it's Uma Thurman in Kill Vill (So ironic that you posted she and Quetin's picture! :-) I LOVE their tireless efforts and determination to get what they want!

    In real life lately, my muse is 3 years old and almost four feet tall.... my own Vivian named after Vivien Leigh! :-) It's also this new writing groove that I've found as I've been tirelessly working on my own book, a cookbook of all things (yet more than just a book of recipes since it is after all my goofy personality and is full of poems, stories and funny stuff). Then last night, my muse was a fortune cookie I received. I just wrote about it an hour ago --

    I love to have a muse and I think we all need them in whatever form they come in~! I hope "Claudia" both your muse and your self has an awesome, inspiring day my friend! Hugs!

    Let's go kick some ass! (Towanda style) :-)
