Public Apology...

This is a public apology to Ms. Drew Barrymore. 

I messed up. I'm sorry. I was wrong.

Not trying to sound like anyone else's apology, of course. :)

So for the longest time after watching Charlie's Angels, I thought Ms. Barrymore had stroke face. Err, more specifically, a stroke victim's face. You know, like when someone has a stroke, and half their face is paralyzed? 

According to the newer pictures and the persuasion of my roommate, I have to revoke my thoughts and impression that she has a stroke face. I think what led me to the idea that Ms. Barrymore had half a paralyzed face was another person I knew that looked a little like Drew. Maybe it was her face shape, or her smile. I tend to be very bad at thinking someone looking like someone else. I always thought people looked like a friend or a celebrity or someone I knew, but my brother would smack me in the head and call me a dumbass. 

I think it's the human brain's ability to relate everything to a past experience. Like every time one were to learn something, they would fit the new idea into their brains relating to something he/she have past knowledge about. Every time someone reads a book, the characters would be automatically related to someone you knew. So when someone reads a story, the character presented would be different, depending on the reader. 

Well, back to Drew. This woman I knew had a stroke, (the one that reminded me of Drew). So half of her face was paralyzed. I believe she's starting to regain some movement to her face, as this was at least 5 years ago. 

If you were to go back and watch Charlie's Angel or 50 First Dates, you might be able to see what I'm talking about, with the stroke face. The way she smiles or smirks, just seems like the other side of her face doesn't quite move. Maybe just really bad expressions that happen to be caught on tape. Things happen. Or maybe it's just a figment of my imagination, my overactive mind. I don't know.

Regardless, I'm so sorry, Ms. Barrymore. I will no long spew those lies and idea that you have a stroke face.  I hope you have a great day. ^^
