99 Days of POI | Day 98 - Favorite POI
Mira Dobrica- "I've never really felt safe since I left Kosovo. I was a girl when I ran away. New name, new country, I tried to leave all that behind. But it's like I've just been waiting to come back somehow, afraid of what would happen to me if it did". - "From what I've seen, you're a lot braver than you think".
Any POI fans out there who would like another follower? I’d sure like more Person of Interest on my dash. Likity like, people, and I’ll check you out.
Welcome to the fandom!
Some more pictures from Cannes 2004. Jim looks so tanned, strong and healthy in these pix. I’m a bit worried for him when I look at the last photos posted on tumblr. He really seems to be in need of some pasta (as savhcaro said) and good home cooking!
Jim with Matt Lauer getting ready for his appearance on the Today Show to promote Bobby Jones, April 2004.
My friend Darlene and I headed down and didn’t think we would get close to the window because of all the school kids. Al Rocker or someone came out and the kids took off towards them and we were suddenly up front. When he first sat down, he looked like a deer caught in head lights… the face …oh my, but then the crew put a mike on him, had him sign a book, then Matt Lauer sat down and fiddled with his notes. Jim looked right at us and Darlene and I waved and he waved back, smiled and winked! Made my day!
He also was at Hickey Freeman to sign autographs for the Bobby Jones book. I only wished I videotaped that…DRATS!! This was the first time ever seeing Jim or doing anything like this, so I’ve learned over the years..yeah I learned…
98 days til Season 3
An older article but I think it’s nevertheless worth being posted. I really hold Jim in veneration for his attitude which – as far as I know – didn’t change till this day.
CAVIEZEL TURNS DOWN MULTI-MILLION DOLLAR PAYDAY
May 26, 2004
Movie star Jim Caviezel has turned down the chance to become a multi-millionaire by starring in a series of TV commercials — because he wants to stay true to his strict Catholic beliefs.
The actor has become hot property since starring as Jesus in Mel Gibson’s epic “The Passion of the Christ,” but the 35-year-old has turned down a series of deals — worth an estimated $75 million.
He says, “I think if I had given way on just one scheme, I would have been tempted to do more. It would have been the easiest thing in the world to make that kind of money quickly.
“That sum would secure your future, but I would never be able to forgive myself.”
Among the deals Caviezel turned down was one for a T-shirt company’s new “Heavenly” line of apparel.
He adds, “I could see the humor in it … but I think I would have upset a lot of people who got something special from the film.”
