Tilda Swinton is Honored At AFI

Tilda Swinton is honored at the AFI Film Festival 2008 in “A Tribute to Tilda Swinton” at Club Sushi in LA on Wednesday.

At the film festival, Tilda admitted, “”I’m not sure I’ve ever become an actress to be honest with you.”

“I’m a kind of fraud because I don’t really feel like an actress, I slipped into it in such a strange way,” the 48-year-old actress said.

“I was always supposed to be a writer and it’s just displacement activity really, acting in films – it’s my way of being a film fan close to the camera,” Tilda said on the red carpet.

    yeah well to # 1 and i’m sure if any of the other stars weren’t wearing eye makeup they would look ugly– she’s not ugly she has a very nice jaw line/proprotions and a very natural look

    Nanea Says:

    She’s in the spotlight because she’s a great actress, very intelligent and funny, and she’s got charisma, unlike all those reality stars.

    But if anyone even has to ask, that says more about the poster than about Tilda.

    Sunaqua Says:

    No she IS ugly and looks more like a guy.

    I agree, Nania. And she’s actually quite pretty when she bothers to fix up in the slightest bit. I think it’s cool that she doesn’t bend to the Hollywood way of doing things, including her looks.

    And she’s an incredible actress. Maybe the rest of you didn’t see Michael Clayton or Thumbsucker or you would know that.

    She is a great actress, but come on now. Get some make-up on and get out of those ugly clothes. It all comes with the territory.

    RM Says:

    I can understand going a bit au natural but come on put a bit of make up please – for yourself if not for anyone else, all those flashing lights can’t be flattering.

    She’s such a lovely woman and an EXCELLENT actress and all you people care about is the way she looks. I appreciate a woman who is natural!

    Luli Says:

    I don’t like the clothes but I think her androgynous look is pretty cool, it’s refreshing to see someone in hollywood who doesn’t need a “mask” to have a career
    Besides how many actresses would look good on the red carpet if you take their make up away?

    Habsburg Says:

    One of our greatest working actresses today. Amazing.

    Not that looks matter in acting, however I think she has a great beauty.
