"I know she’ll be in good hands…"
I suppose that in a few weeks we’ll see the third addition…
One of my friends was upset about pictures that came up and I was like, ‘Look at the pictures of me’. I googled ‘Jennifer Lawrence ugly’. Closed the laptop. Never opened it again.
Oh, Idina Menzel. You are my role model.
‘Frozen definitely isn’t about a man,’ says Idina, ‘but about the relationship between two sisters. At different times in our lives we find ourselves either more connected to or disconnected from the people in our family, and I think audiences will really be able to relate to that.’
‘She finds herself and accepts who she is and she’s very vampy,’ says Idina. ‘She’s quite sexy for Disney, I have to say – they’re pushing the limits there a little bit! But there’s a gleam in her eye and a supermodel walk that goes with it and, for me, it was fun to be a blonde because I’m not in real life.’
In the original tale, the Snow Queen is essentially the villainess of the piece, ‘but Elsa isn’t your typical Disney nemesis,’ explains Idina. ‘She’s powerful and initially misguided but finally accepts herself and what makes her special. She’s a complicated person. I tend to have a pattern of playing misunderstood characters.’
‘There’s something very similar about Elphaba and Elsa in that, as young women, they have huge powers but don’t know how to harness them properly,’ says Idina. (Both Elsa and Elphaba tend to use their powers when they’re feeling emotionally cornered.)
‘I think Wicked appealed to multigenerational audiences because it’s the story of the underdog who finds a way out. With young people, I always say, “You’re not doing anyone any favours by withholding your power.” As women, we do that a lot because we are afraid of being misunderstood or perceived as too strong. But the older I’m getting, the more I realise you have to let that go.’ “Because when we’re younger we’re afraid of sticking out or showing off, when in fact we should own those things that make us really unique.’
I did know Rue.
