girls in movies who inspire me: part 2

2. Kate Hudson as Penny in Almost Famous

If you're a regular visitor to this here blog, this should come as no surprise: I love Kate Hudson. She's such a hippie. I saw her on The Rachel Zoe Project last week and fell just a little more in love. In real life, she's just how I would imagine her to be: chill, stylish, fun, and apt to break out into song. Which is part of the reason why she plays the part of Penny so well in this movie: it's sort of an extension of herself, or at least that's what I like to think.

Penny Lane is legendary. She truly loves rock and roll. She lives for adventure. Where did she even come from? She travels freely, she lives and loves freely. She's darling, strangely innocent, stylish but not too girly, and appreciates good beer. Sure, she has her problems, she wouldn't be human without them, but all in all, she's pure inspiration.

Lines to remember:
Penny Lane: Maybe it is love, as much as it can be, for somebody...
William Miller: Somebody who sold you to Humble Pie for fifty bucks and a case of beer! I was there! I was there!... Look- I'm sorry.
Penny Lane: [sniffs] What kind of beer?

William Miller: "That groupie"? She was a Band-Aid! All she did was love your band. And you used her, all of you! You used her and threw her away! She almost died last night while you were with Bob Dylan. You guys, you're always talking about the fans, the fans, the fans; she was your biggest fan, and you threw her away! And if you can't see that, that's your biggest problem. And I love her! I love her!

Penny Lane: I always tell the girls, never take it seriously, if ya never take it seriosuly, ya never get hurt, ya never get hurt, ya always have fun, and if you ever get lonely, just go to the record store and visit your friends.

Penny Lane: We are not Groupies. Groupies sleep with rockstars because they want to be near someone famous. We are here because of the music, we inspire the music. We are Band Aids.

Penny Lane: I've made a decision, I'm gonna live in Morocco for one year. I need a new crowd. Do you wanna come?

Penny Lane: When we go to Morocco, I think we should have completely different names and be completely different people.
