^ oh yea, I've warmed up to Aish as well post her motherhood. She is a lot more relaxed and at ease in comparison to her earlier yrs. Also, she is a lot more relate-able now, while earlier she'd come across rehearsed and cautious.
in totality, I'd still rate Aish above Priyanka when it comes to Hollywood appearances
If I had to pick, I'd probably pick Aish's Oprah/Letterman intvw than any of PC's intvws...and that says a lot. It really grinds my gears to see a grown up woman act like she's still 13, unexplored lil girl.
Aishwarya's Letterman interview was excellent
! The woman really knows how to hold her own. Letterman was being a class A racist douche, and Aishwarya shut him up
Priyanka is just annoying. I loved her back in her Aitraaz days but she's just too into herself now.
how was Lettermen racist? The term racist is used so loosely today that we call almost anyone racist. He was being culturally ignorant not racist! And besides Bollywood has mocked other ethnicities countless times be it in award shows or movies!
I generally dislike Letterman a lot. He is an ignorant, judgmental, prejudicial, and yes racist excuse of a man.
It's easy for pc people to go around claiming 'oh poc just pull the racist card at every little thing'. This isn't true at all, racism is still as much a problem today as it was 70 years ago. If anything it's worse because racist discourse is now embedded in our everyday language so we no longer fight against it like we use to.
Racism is not confined to any given continent nor have I ever claimed it is. Quite frankly the racism in Bollywood (both against other races, and internalised racism) also makes me feel sick. One of the most horrific things I've seen in a Bollywood film is the way 'Blackface' is used as a comedic trope.
I'm very much against all forms of racism however they manifest themselves. Be it displays of cultural and/or racial ignorance, cultural appropriation, or forms of orientalism.
