Hollywood story shows inspiring actors, directors

/ 09:45 PM March 03, 2013

I really love the Feb. 26 article “Tears, laughter backstage with the Oscar winners.” I have never been awed watching artists I barely knew or reading articles about them, but after I read the article, I was moved by the quoted answers of some of the artists and directors.

The article shows that they act or direct not just because it’s their job but also because it’s their passion. And I guess this is a way to inspire people around the world. A part of the article quotes Anne Hathaway’s compliment for Hugh Jackman: “It wasn’t hard work, but it was challenging. We looked to him every day, to his strength and his indefatigable spirit. He never once complained and he was absolutely our rock.”


Even though artists compete in their line of work, they still find strength and motivation from their coartists. And that is a really good value to keep while they continue on their way up.

I think Ruben V. Nepales summarizes the backstage interviews really well. I found them amusing and interesting. There are only a few artists and directors left who are really dedicated to their jobs, and this article shows who they are.
