The Two Crowns (detail), Sir Frank Dicksee, 1900. Oil on canvas.
Aaliyah’s “crying scene” from Romeo Must Die - in order to do it Aaliyah thought of her grandmother’s death a year before.
It’s funny, when you want to cry you kind of want to cover yourself but I was told you have to be open and let yourself yell out and that will help you to cry, and it actually did. So it was very draining but I had such a wonderful feeling of accomplishment because those are real, they’re not fake tears.
~ Aaliyah for NME, 2001
I will kill you and eat you raw.
