全球身价最高名模被炒后成农民养鸡种菜

《纽约时报》记者今年春天拜访伊莎贝拉,目睹她亲力亲为,用手一次次抓起干虫饲料喂养火鸡,身后还跟着100来只农场的走地鸡。(纽约时报)

伊莎贝拉·罗西里尼(Isabella Rossellini)从出生起就引人注目:星二代、记者、作家、电影明星、全球身价最高的奢侈品牌代言人、红到发紫的名模……总之就是一位人人艳羡的天之骄女。

顶着“瑞典国宝级女星英格烈·褒曼(Ingrid Bergman)及意大利名导演罗拔图·罗西里尼的女儿”的强大光环,伊莎贝拉的星路一度走得很顺遂。在1980年代最当红的时候,她登上50多个国家的500多本时尚杂志的封面。

伊莎贝拉在当模特与代言人之余,也在1979年起向电影界发展,并在1986年主演轰动一时的悬疑电影《蓝丝绒》(Blue Velvet),将有被性虐倾向的歌手角色演得丝丝入扣,还和该片的导演大卫·林区(David Lynch)坠入爱河(谈了六年恋爱),风头一时无两。

过惯了被全世界镁光灯追逐的生活,一切却在她的中年戛然而止。1992年,当时已经担任奢侈品牌兰蔻(Lancome)代言人长达14年的伊莎贝拉被告知,她被解雇了。

“人们说像俊源一样的孩子是特需孩童,但我不认为。其实他只是耳朵听不到。我也把像他那样的孩子视为正常的孩子,其实,他们很厉害的。”

到李英萍(47岁,零售业助理)住家访问的下午,她的12岁儿子颜俊源的补习课刚结束。

无需妈妈“叨唠”,乖巧的颜俊源主动收拾课本和桌子。就如李英萍所言,颜俊源看起来就是一般孩子,只是他患有先天听障。

A Woman Dedicated to Saving Lives Loses Hers in Gaza Violence

Razan al-Najjar, 20, was trying to help an injured protester near the border fence when she was fatally shot by Israeli soldiers, witnesses say. Last month, she spoke to The Times about the challenges she faced as a female medical volunteer.Published OnJune 1, 2018CreditImage by Yousur Al-Hlou

She had become a fixture at the weekly protests along the fence dividing the Gaza Strip from Israel, a young woman in a white paramedic’s uniform rushing into harm’s way to help treat the wounded.

As a volunteer emergency medical worker, she said she wanted to prove that women had a role to play in the conservative Palestinian society of Gaza.

“Being a medic is not only a job for a man,” Razan al-Najjar, 20, said in an interview at a Gaza protest camp last month. “It’s for women, too.”

An hour before dusk on Friday, the 10th week of the Palestinian protest campaign, she ran forward to aid a demonstrator for the last time.
