Chrissy Teigen se emociona ao assistir Podres de Ricos com John Legend e filha!

Representatividade importa, sim! Chrissy Teigen, que é metade tailandesa, foi assistir ao filme Podres de Ricos com o maridão John Legend e sua filha, Luna.

Depois de assistir ao longa, Teigen escreveu em seu Instagram:

“O sentimento que tive durante os créditos, assistindo John dançar com minha pequena mistura asiática e negra, a bebê luna, foi um sentimento que eu não tive no final de nenhum outro filme.”

O momento que ela conta que a emocionou foi quando Luna viu a mãe de Constance Wu na tela e gritou “Yãy!” que significa “vovó”em tailandês:

“Foi algo tão simples que fez meu coração apenas … quente. Isso me fez feliz.”

Como alguém que cresceu em uma “educação asiática-americana confusa”, Teigen diz que ela se identificou muito com o filme. Também refletiu sobre o quão importante é contar histórias diversas como esta, escrevendo:

What can I really say about this movie that hasn’t been said by absolutely everyone who has seen it. I’ve been excited to see this since production was announced but I could have never imagined how wonderful it would be. I planned on seeing it, making a few jokes about how it checked all the boxes for me (CRAZY ☑️ RICH ☑️ ASIAN ☑️) but the feeling I got during the credits, watching John dance with my little black asian mashup baby bear luna tunes, was a feeling I haven’t had at the end of any other movies. Luna, aside from being blown away by the general movie-going experience (yep she’s 13 now, time flies) looked up at @constancewu’s mother and yelled “yāy!” (“Grandma” in thai) because she saw someone who looked like her yāy. Someone beautiful and aspirational. It was something that simple that made my heart just…warm. That made me happy. It made me happy to see this over the top story done from so many angles, some I could totally understand because of my own confusing Asian American upbringing. I loved it all, from the quieter moments of talking around the table of sacrifice and past hardships to the spectacle of the bachelor party. Finding that I could cry watching the most over the top aisle walk on the planet. You never know how much you miss being represented on screen until you actually see what it’s like to be represented. And represented by all different types of characters with all different types of personalities, just like any other great movie. Also aside from all that, it’s just colorful, fun and big as fuck. God I love a rom com. God I loved it all. Thank you guys for making this movie.

Você nunca sabe o quanto sente falta de ser representada na tela até realmente ver o que é ser representada. E representada por todos os diferentes tipos de personagens com todos os diferentes tipos de personalidades, assim como qualquer outro grande filme.
