I know Black History Month is over, but I live this shit everyday so let me have my happiness and joy in this moment.
While randomly watching a movie I stumbled upon a mythical creature. I looked at her and only recognized her voice, but looked closely at the screen and saw a damn unicorn.
A YOUNG CICELY TYSON!
A young Cicely Tyson! She was right on my screen in living color,walking and talking before my very eyes, looking 30 years-old at the most.
I always thought Cicely Tyson was born at least 62 years-old and started acting fresh out of the womb at this age; but this this movie has proven me wrong (Don’t ask me what movie it was, I got too caught up in the rapture of amazement).
All of this time, for more than 15 years since I first saw her in “The Autobiography of Miss Jane Pittman”, I have thought that she was just old for a very very very very long time. It didn’t help that Cicely Tyson’s makeup always looked so good, and in all her other roles I had seen her in since then, she always played an older woman.
I thought it couldn’t get any better but it did!
A YOUNG MORGAN FREEMAN!
A young Cicely Tyson and a young Morgan Freeman on my screen at the same damn time! These are two mythical creatures that I have never seen under 60 years-old and they happen to be in the same movie debunking all of my beliefs looking like their in their 30’s and 40’s.
With this new knowledge I feel like I can do anything. What does this inspire you to do?
Please give me a moment…I’m getting verklempt.
