|William Shakespeare by Jensen|
One of my favorite films when I was in high school was Much Ado About Nothing (1993) with Emma Thompson and Denzel Washington. So fun and clever. Keanu Reeves was painful to watch though. I'm not generally a fan of his 'acting' and in a historical setting, he was cringe-worthy. As a theater geek, I was even in two Shakespeare plays. I was part of the traveling acrobats in Hamlet in college and a guard in my high school production of Much Ado About Nothing. I always had small parts like that. I'm not sure if it was because I was terrible and got pity parts or was decent and people could not get past my appearance. People usually told me I was good, but often found people would say nice things to my face out of pity and I would unfortunately find out the opposite later. Regardless, acting was one of the few things I enjoyed in life.
