If I Could Be Anyone, I'd Be ...

Sandra Bullock.

Because she's beautiful, funny, and a wonderful actress... and I'd be insisting on making more movies with Bradley Cooper. 

(And Rachel Brimble is Beyonce, who would have been my other choice, because she's a beautiful singer and dancer).

The reason for doing this?  Talli Roland's new book Watching Williow Watts is released today!

About Watching Willow Watts
For Willow Watts, life has settled into a predictably dull routine: days behind the counter at her father's antique shop and nights watching TV, as the pension-aged residents of Britain's Ugliest Village bed down for yet another early night. But everything changes when a YouTube video of Willow's epically embarrassing Marilyn Monroe impersonation gets millions of hits after a viewer spots Marilyn's ghostly image in a frame.

Instantly, Willow's town is overrun with fans flocking to see the 'new Marilyn'. Egged on by the villagers -- whose shops and businesses are cashing in -- Willow embraces her new identity, dying her hair platinum and ramming herself full of cakes to achieve Marilyn's legendary curves.

But when a former flame returns seeking the old Willow, Willow must decide: can she risk her stardom and her village's newfound fortune on love, or is being Marilyn her ticket to happiness?

I read The Hating Game and really enjoyed Talli's fresh voice. I look forward to reading this one too (just have a large pile to read, Talli, but promise to get to it soon).


  1. Sandra Bullock is a good choice... it's the choice my husband would make on my behalf!

  2. Fantastic choice. Strong, independent and beautiful! Love!

    Thanks so much for taking part and for your support, Teresa!

  3. Oh, Annalisa, yes, my hubby loves her too. But luckily, so do I :D

    Hey, no problem, Talli. It's fun :D

  4. Big fan of Sandra Bullock. Great choice!

  5. Yep, she's beautiful all right :-)

  6. I always remember her in The Demolition Man which is one of her first films. But Speed was the film that gave her 'fame'.

    She's diverse too. Great comedy - I loved All About Steve (Bradley also had something to do with that) but then things like Premonition where she portrays her more serious side.

  7. I agree that she is a great actress!
