While most of the time we wish our life could be like a book, we often watch a movie and think, "Gee, I wish my life was like that." In Kelly Fiore's latest book, Just Like the Movies, two girls set out to bring a little movie magic into their lives. Today, Kelly dishes on which movie she wished mirrored her own life and what she thinks now.
I think was 17 or so when Titanic came out. I remember thinking, in my less than rational moments, that it would be worth it to be stuck on a sinking ship and face a horrific, freezing cold death if it meant finding true love before going under.
What can I say? I’m a romantic.
These days, I don’t think an ideal relationship requires that much drama. But, as a teen, I was definitely drawn to movies where a girl fell in love with her best guy friend or a friend’s boyfriend or the boy next door. When I was a freshman in high school, I went to see Clueless in the theater. The relationship between Paul Rudd and Alicia Silverstone was both innocent and filled with chemistry. I adored how they started out sniping at each other, merely teasing and taunting as a form of flirting. I’m really attracted to that idea — the idea of fighting as foreplay, assuming of course that we’re talking about verbal sparring.
