Aw arent you a sweetie! Thanks Tres! You are my official PR guy. The pic isnt a still from the film but a pic from my modeling card that the agent sent to a website that needed an image. Its my fav so I am glad you like it too although the quality is rather sketchy to say th least. Oh well, cest la vie!

This may or may not be a still from the movie, but I don't really expect complaints either way.

You are TOO funny!
Run for President will never happen although were I president I would impliment a foreign donut policy to incite world peace. The way it works is we donate our Dunkin Donuts globally. The trouble with Al Quaida is the same problem with Parisians, WE HAVE NO PROPER DONUTS! A beignet isnt a donut! And of course theres strife in the mid-east it is a donut free region!
Brad Pitt and Angelina's kid was born on my birthday but I think thats as close as we'll get. But I do want to be Anglina when I grow up.

Thank you Brenda! It wasn't easy but then what worthwhile ever is?
I am sure it will be making the rounds and if you can take artsy French surrealism you might just like it.

lol You are funny!
Good point, no haven't sat on any defenseless dogs of late, defenseless men maybe, but they died a pleasant death, however where aire I go, my fat ass tends to be central to the plot. lol

I think we'd all kind of say: huh? if we read the 3 lines above and think: that's such a weird way to put it. Why does it matter? I don't get the sense (haven't seen the film, admittedly) that her being plump matters vis a vis her being an heiress with a dog, etc.

In the case of ...Real women have curves, then yes, it makes sense to say the coming of age story of a plump latina trying to break out in a world that doesn't always value her or whatever. But a 'plump heiress?' It's so apologetic. Give me a break.

do correct me if im wrong. i don't want to rant and then feel dumb if her fat ass is central to the plot or something. I mean, like if we find she actually sat on her dog, there was no crime involved, and her buttcheeks are so big she never noticed??? You know, that sort of thing.

Thank you Michelle!
How funny I never even thought about the bare arm thing, brazen arm show-er that I am I just loved my dress so much, I found a gown and then adapted it to the style I wanted with a bustier and a lovely bustle.
Thanks again, your kind comments made my day!

Dayum, What a great writer, very well said.
Want to be my PR agent?

Velvet's role is an unusual one in that she is made up to look much different than her modeling and other pictures, like any actress would be. Her character is a unique one and the film should not be taken too literally as it's really an unusual art film.

Velvet had an interested in exchange with Variety (the Hollywood trade paper) which made some unfortunate comments about her size and got an apology for their remarks. While it is relevant in some ways that her character is larger sized, that character is just that, a character, and shouldn't be confused with Velvet, the person. Likewise, another actor plays a mute ketamine addict, but of course, he is not such a person - he's an actor.

I think it's wonderful the producers chose Velvet to play this role as opposed to Hollywood which pads up Gwyeth, and I think it's important that larger sized actors and actresses have the same range of choices for parts their leaner counterparts have. That's true size acceptance.

Hey Technaut,
I have yet to see any Grosland episodes so I am unfamiliar with that aspect of their work, I only saw AALTRA which I enjoyed, esp the way it was shot.
I only agreed to do the film if it did not make fun of fat people. So while it is a wholely unglamorous character, it is a character who can be both
annoying and somehow sensitive/vulnerable. I will let you be the judge.
Thanks!
Velvet

Yeah me too! Then she claimed she was speaking of the character, which is true as they wanted an immobile-ish character, you have to see the movie, but I did put her in her place as I was rather offended to say the least given how fat and active I am.

"Velvet, the actress who plays Avida, is a half-dressed Venus
of Willendorf so obese she can barely walk, like the physical
image of her over-consuming class."

Not only can I walk, but I have danced with several well established
French contemporary dance companies, as well as hit the runway
for John Galliano (you need to be able to walk to do so).
It is interesting to me that you don't state for example, 'Gustave
Kervern, the actor who plays Captivus, is so darn mute he can
barely utter a word.'
I am playing the role of Avida, much like any other actor would.
I am not Avida. I suppose it underscores the fact that cinema
is nearly totally devoid of actresses of my size, whilst the streets
are full of us, and indeed obesity stats would confirm our growing
numbers. My sincere hope is that you might consider your error
and contemplate why you came to such a conclusion based on my
character, not on my person.
Thank you,
Velvet

Her responce,

"Sorry, I didn't mean YOU couldn't walk, I meant the character
couldn't -- she's carted around on a sled for most of the film. I
will correct our website review. Again, didn't mean to offend! I
liked your performance.
Deborah "

Apology or no, (actually it's good someone apologized) the above hit me like a bolt of lightning. "So obese she can barely walk"?

As an added bonus, check out her group for a beautiful picture of her at Cannes.
