you had one non-american/white, non-stick thin character and you get a white,blonde stick thin actress to play her

1. I have never written a central female character who was described as thin other than Lindsey Lee Wells. Also, Margo and Q are two of the only white-identified people I’ve written, so I don’t really know how to respond to that part of your statement.

2. I do not cast the movie adaptations of my books. I am a novelist, not a casting director. I did not choose who would play Margo anymore than I choose where the movie will be filmed or what the budget or soundtrack will be.

3. That said, I think Cara will do a wonderful job as Margo. As I’ve learned in the past few hours, a lot of people who don’t know Cara have extremely strong opinions about her as a person, which is weird, because they don’t know her. They have a lot of opinions about her body, too, especially its supposed inadequacies. Cara is living, on a much larger stage, the Margo Roth Spiegelman experience: She receives massive amounts of attention but she’s more a mirror than a window. The way people respond to her seems to be a reflection of one’s own experience and worldview more than it has anything to do with the actual person Cara is. I think this is part of why Cara’s audition was so powerful: Her understanding of Margo is deep and profound and about a lot more than the shape of her body.

I imagined Jennifer Lawrence as Margo when I read Paper Towns - its about attitude right?

Cara was amazing in a one-off by Playhouse Presents, called ‘Timeless’. Doubters need to watch it. The curious need to watch it. Everyone should watch it.

So damn excited to see her as Margo.

Cara Delevingne will play Margo Roth Spiegelman in the Paper Towns movie. 
Like everyone involved in the film, I was blown away by her audition. She really, really, really gets Margo.

My 2014

specsbecs:

In roughly this order these things will happen to me this year:

I will rent my first property alone

I will become a Senior Library Assistant at a University

I will become an Aunt

I’ll see McBusted to forget about turning 27

I’ll get three years close to turning 30….

I will become a sister-in-law

My 2014 is going to freaking rock. Hopefully all these things happen, the first three may still go horribly wrong, if any has to I hope its the first.

I’m reblogging myself because ALL of the above happened. Plus I went to the USA and saw one of my dearest friends get married. 2014 has been a bloody great year.

I wasn’t sure I’d like this book, but 3 hours and entirely forgetting Dr Who later…

If I ever go down the aisle I want to see my future husband doing this

I sent an email to a librarian in the States about how tough it would be to go work over there. Not only is she from Australia but also was totally honest about how difficult it would be. I’m sad but not surprised and it makes me realise how much I love the librarian world because we don’t bullshit but also embrace random enquiries.

So on to plan B, be the best fecking librarian in the UK ever. Or marry a US citizen :D
