Why Can’t I Be What I Want To Be?

Rosie Raven, 30

Here I have painted myself as a Teddy Boy, I’ve always wanted to dress up as one and with paint, I can dress up as whatever I like. I am an actor as well as a painter and I don’t get to play the ‘cool’ or ‘interesting’ characters. Like this, I can, whenever and however I like. I don’t think there are many actresses out there that wouldn’t want to play the knight or the cowboy, the characters that have real extension to their personality other than their breasts or genitals. I don’t think there are many women out there who wouldn’t want that opportunity in general.
