“As a professional impersonator, I'll lay out the steps to become someone else and take over their life without bringing any kids into the world.
Study the person's hairstyle, makeup, walk, mannerisms, talking, clothing and fashion and practice copying them.
Find clothes, jewelry and makeup that look very expensive but really aren't. Most people won't know the difference. Theaters get ballgowns that look like designer gowns worn at the Oscars for $15 from a thrift shop.
If you get plastic surgery, make sure you show the surgeon the picture of the person you want to look like. Stage makeup can go a long way so plastic surgery may not be necessary.
Study the acting roles the person does then take acting classes and do those scenes and monologues.
Get headshots and a modeling portfolio of yourself looking exactly like that person. Put them on a web site and send them to casting directors and agents, especially ones that work with the person you want to be. Put these pics all over the Internet.
If you need to be seen with a guy or with kids, hire some actors to play the role for the appearances.
Do gigs as the person you're trying to be for friends parties, at clubs and bars, etc. even if they don't pay.
Go somewhere where no one knows you and practice being that person or that person's double. Write out a life story for who you're becoming, learn it and make that past your own.”

Hey, maybe the kids' father is paying something for them. Has anyone ever thought of that?”

“Copy catting is not a mental illness. The question is how you do it. I've made an acting career out of copy catting people and I practically adopted their lives. But I didn't have 14 kids. Costume, makeup, and learning to walk and talk like them goes far enough.”

“Now you want doctors checking savings accounts? Why not just say goodbye to all freedom and privacy period. I've had plastic surgery and over my dead body would I ever allow anyone including the doctors to know about my finances. FYI, you can pay for plastic surgery with a credit card.”

“How do you know Angelina didn't have plastic surgery? As an actress, more than half of my actor friends have had some work done. Yeah, I've had lipo. Several times. And some of the Hollywood types clearly got bad plastic surgery because they have these tight pulled back faces that make them look like aliens.”

“Big deal, husbands come and go in Hollywood as quickly as the witches in the Wizard of Oz. Why does she have to "get her own identity?" What if she wants to be someone else? What right does society have to force an identity on anyone? This identity thing can very quickly become a prison. I've acted like over 100 different people over the years, whoever I chose to be at any given moment. And that's the way it should be.”

“That's why I said if Suleman wants to be like Jolie she could adopt kids from third world countries. Any life she could give them would likely be better than what they have now. Jolie has six kids and Suleman already had six so this octuplet thing makes her less like Jolie, not more. And how do we know Suleman hasn't given money or time to soup kitchens or homeless shelters. You know, not only millionaires have the resources to give to others. One person doing volunteer work or bonding with a kid who has very few adults in their life can do an equal amount of good.

Some people may discriminate based on money but it's still wrong. If actor X is as talented as Jolie and can do the same job, then actor X deserves the same rewards. Otherwise it's undue favoritism.

Oh and I know some overweight swimsuit models, and I say, you go girls!”

“No, actually, she couldn't adopt kids, because she could not prove financial and family stability. It's expensive and difficult to adopt children from anywhere. There are laws and standards in place that would preclude her from adopting here or anywhere. Here, she wouldn't make it through the investigations that accompany less expensive adoption routes through government - plus those are few and far between particularly for infants - and she wouldn't have the approximately $50k+/each that it takes to adopt from overseas.”

“Really you think its wrong to discriminate based upon someone's ability to pay? Seriously? Do you have a job or do you work for free? I'm curious how you pay your bills.

Oh I didn't say "overweight" swimsuit models--I said "obese", please name one that can be googled.

I fail to see how whether Suleman gave time to a soup kitchen somehow lets her off the hook for being irresponsible. By your argument, how do we know that she's not a shoplifting coke fiend? We can only base our opinions on what we know, and what we know is that her mom, who by the way she lives with, says she can't support the kids she has now let alone eight more. I'm all for compassion, but you're just being silly in defending her.”

“I don't think we know what Suleman can and can't' afford. Maybe she plans to do movies too. And Jolie can only spread herself so thin before having the same time constraints.

This still looks like discrimination based on money or on how much money someone is thought to have. Even billionaires have lost everything to Madoff schemes so no one even if they have money now is guaranteed they'll have it for life.”

OMAguy on Feb 13, 2009 at 19:21:02

“We discriminate all the time based on money. I invite anyone who can't afford a Mercedes-Benz go to a dealer and explain to them how you really love their cars and that even though you can't afford one you shouldn't be denied one simply because you can't afford it.

The word discriminate has taken an very negative connotation, for obvious reasons, but we discriminate all the time. Quadriplegics aren't allowed to serve in the military, the vertically challenged fail to make the NBA, the obese aren't sought after as swimsuit models etc etc. And people that can't afford 14 children, regardless of the thought that this type of behavior could do to the planet if it became a trend, shouldn't have them.”

“Raven, there are some big differences between Jolie and Suleman. One of the biggest is Jolie uses a lot of her own resources to help others, while Suleman expects others to use their own resources to help her”

“If she really is trying to be exactly like Angelina, she should be adopting kids from poor countries. It's actually easier for a single person to adopt from a third world country than it is to adopt a US born child.

Money does not make a double standard legitimate. Why should one person get to do stuff just because they have money and someone else not get to do the same things if that's what they really want. Money doesn't make someone a perfomer or a celebrity. You can become either or both of those by eating tarantulas on reality shows. As an actress, I want the damn money just about as much as I want to eat those tarantulas. But if someone tried to value me less because I reject the money and eating bugs, they know what they can go do with themselves.”

OMAguy on Feb 13, 2009 at 17:16:36

“Money does make a difference. Jolie can afford to have as many kids as she wants, Suleman does not. I never signed on to help pay for her kids that she chose to have.”

“No, I admit I'm the equivalent of a circus clown and find trying on disguises and identities a boatload of fun. I've copied plenty of people who aren't "celebrities." I'm saying there's nothing wrong with just trying to be somone else whether for a role or just for the high. Acting's fun but worshipping people who do it is just plain silly. And the media encourage that silliness, then blame people for buying into it. I don't want or need anyone to worship me. But I don't want to be trapped in one identity either, and if I decide that tomorrow I want to be Angelina Jolie and try on that role, I have the right to do it without being judged as evil or crazy. And it can be done without having 14 kids. Even Angelina doesn't have that many.”

“Too bad Nadya didn't realize that you don't have to have a brood of babies to change your identity. Come on, lots of people have had plastic surgery. Maybe Angelina had it too. No one should be forced into only one identity they don't like. Plastic surgery and becoming an actress would have been better choices than having all these kids. Hey, I'm an actress and I've changed my identity about 100 times and not just for roles either. Different hair colors, eye colors, voices, personalities, lipo, name changes, etc. Why shouldn't people be able to try on identities the way they do fashion and clothing. I admit to having "been" several prominent actresses, each time getting the look so completely I was mistaken for their double. I made my life just like theirs and loved every minute. Whoever "I'" originally was is long lost in the fog of history. I can be whoever I choose to be and so can anyone.
But I wouldn't bring babies into the world just for that.”

“There's nothing wrong with Nadya having had the obvious and undeniable plastic surgery. That's not the POINT. The point is that--the work she's had done is $30,000 US$ woth of surgery (as estimated by famed 25 year guest surgeon on Dr. Phil)...
The POINT is::: WHY didn't she spend THAT money on raising the 6 kids she had...and not opt to go spew out 8 more babies--God did not "GRACE" her with the babies...she CIRCUMVENTED nature to achieve her selfish desires with NO forethought as to the logic in the best interest of the children--whose hopes of higher education (at 10 grand + a child--per YEAR) shall cost. Already--the children';s hopes are dashed for schooling...and for an atteentive nd capable -PRESENT and fully active Mother...but rather-having a whole brood of strangers come in rotating shifts to the COMPOUND to man the parental ship.
This whole story and situation's preposterous and reeks of ulterior motive. Any financial contributions to Nadya need to be deducted by Welfare as INCOME. It's illegal not to claim that. She's breaking the LAW.President Obama TOLD everyone to "STOP living beyond your means"--and she's not LISTENING. It's important to know ones LIMITATIONS. Clearly she fails.”

“"Maybe if we stopped this crap "celebrity" worship and treated acting like just another profession that gets regular pay and understanding that actors are just regular people, not gods, this kind of thing might not happen".

Ravencrow these are your own words, replying to someone else's comment further down. It seems that you are getting a little caught up yourself, in this "celebrity" worship game.”

“"They have money?" Why should there be separate standards, with one group favored just because they have money? What's good for the goose is good for the gander.

“Point is , Angelina and Brad did not have invitro for all of their children. They are either adopted or they were biological.

Angelina has not been implanted with 12 fertilized eggs.”
