    I’ve loved this woman since “Orlando”. When is she going to do a movie with Cate Blanchett?

    Send Putin a rainbow coloured shirt–or if he is afraid of wearing it- some rainbow coloured pants. I’m positively sure he will stay up at night , several nights-and admire himself in front of a huge mirror !

  3. That was a very nice gesture.
    Thanks for your support, Tilda!

  4. A great but risky gesture!

    1. Agreed. See the cop behind her?

      Russia is marching boldly back to the time of Ivan the Terrible…

    Wonderful!

    BTW, the building behind Tilda, although often mislabeled as the Kremlin, is actually Saint Basil’s Cathedral, situated at the geometric centre of Moscow

    It’s actually St. Basil’s Cathedral behind here. The Kremlin is another building complex.

      Yes, the main thing in the background is St. Basil’s Cathedral but you can just see a sliver of the Kremlin’s walls and one of it’s “turret’s” in the far right of the picture.

      I disagree with D McCabe. Tilda’s gesture is indeed brave but I don’t think that the Russian authorities would treat her too severely for fear of sparking a major international incident.

  7. bloody marvelous – what a woamn

  8. Respected her for her body of work and fearless attitude for a long time – Appreciate her courage as a friend and ally.

  9. Watch out for that taaaaaaannnnnkkkk……splat, que the opressive conumist hyms

  10. That is an iconic picture!!! Love how the police car is in the background. All i say can say is, she is really brave!

  11. A presume the acting jobs have dried up?

    The Russian people conquered the fascist ideology of Nazism and now they face homosexual ideologues trying to hoist a distorted sexuality and immoral lifestyle on them .The rainbow swastika and the Pride Nuremberg rallies are not a thing the good people of Russia want .
