This post contains a spoiler for “Joy” @gracieraena: What’s a defining moment in your life? Last year my grandfather and my father died within a six-month period. And I broke up from a serious relationship. My whole life flipped upside down and it happened so quickly. That was pretty defining because I felt completely stripped down. I had nothing left. And I think that’s a big part of why, now, I’m so aware that someone else might be going through a really hard time today or they might need a boost. And I make an effort to every day reach out to people and make sure they are doing okay. It humbled me. It was the greatest experience of my life, but that was definitely a defining moment because I was suppose to be a Hollywood star- to be pursuing my career, building my resume, etc. But that’s not what life had in mind. It was hard, especially with my grandpa. I was with him throughout hospice and his cancer treatments and he was the closest person in the world to me. It wasn’t until Christmas, a year and a half later, I saw “Joy” with my mom and (spoiler alert) the part where the grandmother passes away, that I burst into tears. I was with him the moment he passed, but not until a year later was I finally able to feel it. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is the magic of the movies. #thereelwomen #family #grandpa #film #television #TV #art #actress #love #success #beyou #tvlover #tvnerd #filmlover #goals #work #instadaily #instahub #picoftheday #instagood #womeninfilm #betterhollywood #women #girlgang #bosslady #ladyboss #girlboss #filmequality #LA #hollywood http://ow.ly/i/ghovy
