    You definitely need to add Sophia Bush to that list, @SophiaBush. Waiting for the day she sits down with Amanda.

    I am going to be an odd duck here. Just because a woman is famous/pretty/talented and/or is potentially good at creating a strong public facade, does not necessarily mean she is strong. I would have to know them personally (such as one of my heroes, my childhood neighbour Mrs. Stewart) to laud their greatness.

    We are good at helping people onto fragile pedestals, making them ‘more’ ‘better’ than the average Jane/Joe. But let them show they actually ARE uncomfortably like the average Jane/Joe, we tend to gleefully tear them down.

    I would prefer to avoid the idolization in the first place.
