Laverne Cox in the music video for "You & I" by John Legend

Side note: This video is beautiful and wonderful and I cried

This is legit so beautiful. Like. Future wedding song right here I stg

she has an incredible amount of sexual lure about her and it’s mesmerzing

Please watch this music video. Oh my God. The diversity is so amazing and refreshing. They include almost if not every race. They have a woman with vitiligo. They have lesbians. It has body diversity. It shows women’s breasts and bodies in an unsexualized way. There’s a little girl with downs syndrome. AND LAVERNE. ONE SHE’S SO FUCKING STUNNING EVEN WITHOUT MAKEUP BUT OH MY GOD A TRANS WOMEN. THE REPRESENTATION. My favorite part though, besides all of the different women, was probably the way they were portayed. We see them putting on makeup, we see them taking it off. We see women on their wedding days, we see women with their children. We see women sick. We see little and young girls, too. We see women in suits being powerful. We see women going to job interviews and at school. We see women graduating from college. We see women crying. We see women laughing. We see women showering and at unflattering angles and we see women exercising and kissing their partners and we see women as something we hardly ever, ever see in the mainstream media… People. We see realistic women doing things that women do and it’s just so beautiful and refreshing.

Usually when characters age in movies, they’re covered with makeup and outfitted with prosthetics – or directors use different actors as the character ages. But in the new film Boyhood, none of that is necessary.
The film takes place over the course of 12 years, and it was shot over the course of 12 years. So we watch the actors getting older for real, which gives their characters a sense of authenticity.
Director Richard Linklater told what it was like to cast a 6 year-old boy (Ellar Coltrane) not knowing who he would become: 

"It was a huge leap. I just went with a kid who seemed kind of the most interesting. I liked the way his mind worked — he was a little mysterious and sensitive and very thoughtful. He was cut from no ordinary cloth. He was homeschooled and his parents were artists and I thought, "Well, that’s cool, there’ll be some family support for this undertaking. It will be a fun thing to do in his life."
So I think I had the family support but as far as he goes, you kind of have to admit that your main collaborator here has a really unknown future. But I would have each year to incrementally adjust and maybe go toward who he was becoming. That was sort of the design of the movie.”
