HBD Julia Stiles! 10 Things I Love About You…

In honor of Julia Stiles’ 35th birthday, a poem inspired by the same one that her character in 10 Things I Hate About You, Kat Stratford, read out loud to a classroom of half-asleep students including her cinematic ex-boyfriend-but-not-for-much-longer, Patrick Verona:

I love the way you embraced 90s tank tops and did that two piece skinny bang thing with your hair.

I love that you “still maintain that he kicked himself in the balls.”

I love it when you glare.

I love that you’ve been in three Shakespeare adaptations, not including your movie with Freddie Prinze, Junior.

I love you as a ballerina in Save the Last Dance where you were a late fashion bloomer.

I love it, I love the way you flashed the 10 Things detention teacher.

I love, in Save the Last Dance, when you try to say, “Slammin.'”

I love that you’ve been in a lot of other stuff besides your 90s hits, and that you never tried to make a show called “Style with Stiles” happen.

I love it that you were kind of moody because it made me feel like I could be, too.

But mostly I love the way that you were the ultimate Man Repeller; a 90s beacon of “you do you.”

      When I looked at the draft of 6895 dollars, I have faith that brother of my friend was like really generating cash in his free time with his PC..yib His aunt’s neighbor has done this for only 11 months and by now repaid the loan on their home and bought a new Car.

    don’t, for one minute, think that you had any effect whatsoever on my panties. 😉

  • Julia Stiles as Kat Stratford in 10 Things I Hate About You was pivotal in my coming of age and deciding to be a strong, independent no-nonsense woman. I also like to believe that Kat Stratford changed her name to Nicky Parsons and grew up to help Jason Bourne because she knew he was innocent.

    Also, is it just me, or is she the 90’s queen of resting bitch face?

    • Shevaun

      I was thinking while scrolling through “Damn, how do I perfect this bitch face!”

      I watched Jessica Jones a couple weeks ago, and she also has a pretty good resting bitch-face, which I then tried to imitate when going outside.
