10 People I Admire
1. Daniel Day Lewis
Only works when he wants. When he does, he gives the world incredible performances.
2. Adam Kitzinger
Putting his country ahead of his political career, which will be over, at least for now.
3. Liz Cheney
Same as Adam.
4. Dana White
Love MMA. Dana has an interesting story. Do wish the fighters made more money.
5. Dave Chappelle
Turned down a lot of money when he quit his show. Right now, he's under a lot of heat and is not backing down. He's adamant that art should be given a lot of freedom and space to explore.
6. Alison Lohman
Put her acting career on hold to raise her children. Really enjoyed watching her movies and hope she comes back one day.
7. Barbara Jordan
Bill Clinton wanted to nominate her as the first black woman to the Supreme Court. She had no interest, saying she enjoyed her life in Austin, TX. She passed away only a few years later.
8. John Cazale
Most known for being Fredo in The Godfather. He only acted in 5 full-length films before passing away from cancer. All 5 films were critically acclaimed movies. Can't think of anyone else who never acted in a bad film.
9. Teddy Roosevelt
Maybe the most interesting man ever.
Here's a picture of a then 19-year old legend.
10. Pat Tillman
Left his successful NFL playing career to enlist in the US Army after 9/11 where he was killed in action.
