I’ve thought long and hard about the top 3 famous people I’d like to each brunch with, and I decided that they all must be alive, otherwise it would be me, Sylvia Plath, Harriet Tubman and Jane Austen. And I say brunch because let’s be real, brunch is the best meal of the day. Atmosphere would be low-key, and casual, maybe at a little cafe with funky artwork on the walls. I’m always up for funky. The very exclusive guest list would include:
- Tom Hiddleston. How can you go from sexy, you-will-kneel, villain to adorable man who spends his free time working with UNICEF and supporting women everywhere? We would have so much to talk about, I’d have so many questions about what it’s like to volunteer in West Africa, what it’s like to wear historically accurate costumes while acting in Henry V and, of course, what it’s like to be a super villain.
- Nicole Perlman. First woman to write the script of a Marvel film, specifically, Guardians of the Galaxy. What is cooler than a woman who is passionate about aliens and science and gets to write about it? Nothing.
- Julie Andrews. I have so much respect for this woman. Not only was she made a Dame by Queen Elizabeth ll for her services to the performing arts, she also rose above rough circumstances to become the famous icon we know today, singing on Broadway and acting in everything from Mary Poppins to The Princess Diaries. If I could spend the rest of my life with her, I would.
Undoubtedly, my list will change, but for now, these are the famous people I’d give anything to have brunch with. I think the four of us would have so much to talk about, I’d be completely happy to sit with them all afternoon. What about you, who would you have at your table?
