Hey Hollywood and friends, I’ve got a bone to pick with you: Why oh why do you insist on making Catherine of Aragon a contender for the Frida Kahlo Look-a-Like contest?
- You did it in “Anne of the Thousand Days.”
- You did it in “The Other Boleyn Girl.”
- “The Sword and the Rose”? I’d say so.
- How about “The Tudors.” Oh why the heck not, at that point!
Catherine, a Spanish princess, had strawberry blonde hair, light eyes, and a fair complexion. See, above?
She and Henry VIII (a ginger with a light complexion as well) had Mary I, so don’t even think of giving her the exotic treatment. You’ve already given her the stubby-little-troll treatment and the bitter grouchpot treatment, poor girl.
