i think it’s referencing on-set affairs and also decidedly less consensual sexual harassment/worse that definitely happens from directors towards their actors while filming. ‘pouncing’ is a gross euphemism, what the interviewer should have said was ‘take advantage of’. but i’m the sure the interviewer was trying to be more naively like, “has a director ever tried to make a move on you?”
i told myself i wasn’t gonna ship it anymore i am such a disappointment
i think it’s so neat that everyone develops their own unique handwriting even though we’re all taught to write our letters the same way really it’s so cool
kirsten dunst what’s going on????
When Coppola asked Dunst if a director had ever “pounced” on her while she working together, Dunst laughed and said “no.” “I don’t give off that vibe,” she explained, adding, “I think that you court that stuff, and to me it’s crossing a boundary that would hinder the trust in your working relationship.”
"And sometimes, you need your knight in shining armour. I’m sorry. You need a man to be a man and a woman to be a woman. That’s why relationships work…"

On March 12, an Inuit hunter shot and killed a female Polar Bear near Point Lay, Alaska. When he realized it was a female, he searched for the den and found young Kali, a 3 - 4 month cub. The hunter then carried the cub to the Department of Wildlife Management who then passed the healthy 18.4lb cub to the Alaska Zoo who was equipped to care for the orphan.
Thankfully the cub has so far thrived under the care of keepers and veterinarians, exhibiting the trademark playfulness of his age and species. In these photos, taken by volunteer photographer John Gomes at the Alaska Zoo, the cub takes on a similarly sized opponent. Plans are in the works to relocate the cub to the Buffalo Zoo in New York, which recently welcomed another cub, Luna.
Polar Bears are one of the most recognizable animals threatened by melting polar ice. The Alaska Zoo works with Polar Bears International (PBI) to try to reverse this troubling trend. The Alaska Zoo is a PBI Arctic Ambassador Center, which means they:
- Strive for bear friendly exhibits with enrichment activities to stimulate the bears to be active and content
- Provide leadership for carbon emission reduction in their communities
- Support PBI research projects to help conserve wild polar bears
- Play a key role in the PBI Sustainability Alliance, a front-line team helping to save polar bears in a rapidly warming Arctic
