Last Sunday, the night of the Oscars, the actress Blanca Portillo (59 years old) gave us a few words at the Malaga Festival that will go down in posterity as one of the great speeches in the history of the Spanish film awards. In addition, the Madrid artist collected her award for her career in jeans and a T-shirt, a strange outfit that she justified by saying that she was dressed as herself, as a human, as Blanca Portillo.
The interpreter, who has been working for almost 40 years, wanted to talk about beauty, physique, trade and the scrutiny of the image of actresses, something that is often silenced too much to 'not bother'.
''You may be wondering what a mamarracha is doing dressed like that on a night of luxury and splendor. Tonight I am not here to defend a character, I am here because you have decided to value my almost 40 years dedicated to acting. Since you are valuing that, I want to receive it as a person. I am a human being without additives or dyes, a 59-year-old woman who is afraid most of the time,'' commented the actress.
Later he compared himself to Brad Pitt to talk about image in the world of cinema: ''He has fought against his beauty to show that he is more than a beautiful body and face. And I, against my lack of beauty to show that without it you can also be an actress '', she expressed very excited. He also wanted to take advantage of that moment to send a message of hope to "everyone who has ever been told that they need the physique to dedicate themselves to this profession" and ended by saying that the only thing that is needed to dedicate themselves to interpretation is love, effort, training, the ability to dream and courage to overcome fear, as well as respect for yourself and culture.
Portillo's speech was very well received on social networks, where a great stir was created. Thousands of people commented with great emotion on the importance of seeing dissident physicists on the screen and how necessary allegations such as that of the actress are in spaces such as the Malaga Festival.
"You want to tell Blanca Portillo that she is the antithesis of 'non-beauty'. Maximum beauty is her and the wonder of her speech. At her feet'' or ''In a world of impostures and appearances, this speech by Blanca Portillo is especially honest and courageous'' are some of the comments that have filled the Internet.
