    Peoples intolerance to children learning about sex and violence is what ruined my life. I was molested for two years from age 8-10. I asked my mother what sex was on multiple occasions, I asked my teachers what being molested actually was. People destroyed my life trying to protect me, what they thought protected me actually kept me silently suffering for TWO YEARS. I wake up crying almost every night and I have to sleep in the same room as someone or I have panic attacks, and it could have been avoided. Stop making it so hard for children to tell you when somethings wrong. Stop acting like you should be ashamed for bringing it up around them. They're sometimes better off knowing.

    Interview With A Vampire was supposed to be too much for a child. Being a child vampire is supposed to be too much. All of the emotions, lack of impulse control...everything trapped into an immortal body. She was a cautionary tale and reason to explain why making child vampires is a bad idea.

    Fun Fact: Natalie Portman was a front runner for Romeo + Juliet, and screen tested several times with Leo DiCaprio. However being only 15 at the time, compared to Leo being 22, it was deemed inappropriate and the studio feared it would make audiences too uncomfortable. This led them to of course choose the slightly older Claire Danes, who was 17.

    I was one of those kids who wasn’t fazed by many things. Swear words, controversy, gore, nothing really got to me. So whenever one of those things came up, my family would usually either freak out or ask if I was Alright. I remember looking at them confused like “Yeah? Why wouldn’t I be?” I wasn’t pissed off by a lot of things. Needless to say I think I’m still the same kid.

    It's like people don't have kids; were never kids; didn't know any kids. Imagination, it's all about imagination. And it's film; like no one knows about editing, takes, point of view ... crikeys.

    As a child actor, I can tell you that adults who haven't been they're don't understand that most sets are really nice and the atmosphere is really nice. It is very beneficial for us to know what we're doing, or what we are involved in. Its not as bad as adults think.

    There are lots of violent and one sort-of sexually loaded scenes in Rob Zombie's 2007 remake of Halloween. In the audio-commentaries of the DVD, Rob admits that it's not 12-year old (at the time) Daeg Faerch behind the mask during the violent scenes. It's even admitted that the hand that gently strokes the sisters bare leg before she is killed is not Daeg's.
    This movie fits the video-description better than any of the entries because, in this movie, the director realized ahead of time that he would have to use a stand-in for the mature parts and didn't have his child-actor do any of the disturbing takes.

    Portman's career upsets me because Leon was a nuanced, depthful movie about many symptoms of a trauma survivor yet it go boo'd by American critics. Later, she starred in Black Swan which got rave reviews despite blatantly steal scenes from Perfect Blue (another masterpiece about what trauma and sexual violence does to victims) and was directed by the serial sex predator Darren Aronofsky.
    It's all backward, I wish good art and people were lauded while all the bad stuff was shunted to a dumpster.

    The gap between rated R films and rated PG-13 is monumental now compared to when the PG-13 originally came out. At this point, I either watch R or PG because of all the "studio corrections" done to R movies to make them more consumer positive and accessible while at the same time losing the director's vision. It's disgusting. It's a tough world out there folks... art should express that so our youth can learn through watching before experiencing.
