MY NAME IS ASTRID WHETTNALL, I AM A COMEDIAN. CLEARLY, YES. THE DIRECTORS; THE DIRECTORS WITH WHOM I WORK ARE EVIDENTLY PEOPLE WHO HAVE A MESSAGE. THEY HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY, WHICH INTERESTS ME GREATLY AND I HOPE IT WOULD INTEREST THE PUBLIC. I NEED, OF COURSE, TO BE INSPIRED, TO NOURISH MYSELF, TO LEARN; AND WHAT WE DO TODAY HAS A REAL POLITICAL VALUE, AT LEAST IN CREATION. ON A SMALL SCALE, BUT NONETHELESS.
I'M TOUCHED BECAUSE I THINK ONE OF THE FIRST PIECES I BOUGHT AS A YOUG WOMAN WAS A SLEEVELESS BLAZER, WITH A BLACK BELT. I CAME TO PARIS ON VACATION, IT WAS A REAL INVESTMENT. TO ME WHEN WE HAVE A BARBARA BUI GARMENT ON US, AS A WOMAN OR MAYBE EVEN A MAN, IT GIVES ALL THE POWER TO OUR FEMININITY. IT GROUNDS ME AND I FEEL LIKE MYSELF ; BUT IN ALL MY POWER AND GLORY.
"ASTRID REPRESENTS THIS WOMAN OF CHARACTER TO WHOM I ADDRESS. SHE HAS THIS NATURAL ELEGANCE THAT I LIKE."
