Multi-awarded actress Maggie Smith was halfway through her cancer treatment when she made Harry Potter and The Half-Blood Prince, starring as Professor Minerva McGonagall. 

“I was hairless. I had no problem getting the wig on. I was like a boiled egg,” she said.

The chemotherapy was, she said, “something that makes you feel much worse than the cancer itself”. “You feel horribly sick. I was holding on to railings, thinking ‘I can’t do this’,” she said.

But she insisted she will “stagger through” the final Harry Potter film, The Deathly Hallows. Let’s just pause and ponder on how awesome this woman is, a true Gryffindor.

I will never not reblog this.  This woman is my hero.  I’ve seen what my mom went through with chemo.  To go through it and still put on such a moving performance is something she should be very proud of.

Signatures of all our presidents

Some of these are so wonderfully exquisite, like William Henry Harrison’s, or Gerald Ford’s.

Washington’s signature looks like a piece of art like goddamn calligraphy.

For some reason Andrew Jackson felt the need to underline his name, and I’m not gonna lie but John Quincy Adams’ signature tells me that he hadn’t ever mastered the art of writing in cursive because it looks like the handwriting of a six year old. His dad’s name, on the other hand, looks like a teenage girl wrote it.

Jefferson’s looks like he was tripping on acid every time he had to sign something, and God knows what was going on with Taft when he signed his name.

But notice the gradual change from elegant penmanship to mere scribbles like men need to learn how to write beautifully again.

apparently e.l. james called former child star mara wilson (matilda) a “sad fuck” for critiquing the 50shades books a while ago and now there’s a feud. i love it.

this gives me hope.

mara wilson is also the faceless old woman who lives in your home, so you know she’s got your best interests at heart

A muggle-born’s sibling sends them a howler in the middle of the school year and it arrives while they eat. When they open it, all it does is simply scream “WHAT TEAM?”. Nearly all the muggle-borns shout “WILDCATS!” before returning to their meal, leaving the pure-bloods in total confusion of what the hell they just witnessed.

Thinking youre attractive but having a lot of insecurities is like having a crush on yourself but not knowing if you like yourself back.
