Lynch attempted to promote Dern’s chances of an Academy Award for Best Actress nomination at the 2007 Academy Awards by campaigning with a live cow.
“I’m here to promote Laura Dern who I think you’ll agree gave an incredible performance that’s going to live,” Lynch said. “I think the Academy members love showbusiness — and this is the showbusiness approach.”
Alongside Lynch’s pitch was a banner with the slogan:
‘WITHOUT CHEESE THERE WOULDN’T BE AN INLAND EMPIRE.’
Lynch’s reasoning was simple:
“I ate a lot of cheese during the making of Inland Empire.”
What do you mean when you say, “Love is not about power”?
When I was writing Revolution from Within, I wrote a chapter about the difference between romance and love. It dawned on me that love is about wanting what’s best for the other person; it’s two whole people. Romance is about wanting the other person; it’s two fractional people trying to become whole. Nobody else can be the rest of you because you’re unique. Romance is often about power and possession. It may turn into love, but it has different characteristics. Some say it’s the most intense form of curiosity and exploring—which is why it burns out. Someone else cannot be the rest of you.
