Next time you go on a flight I want you to try this. I want you to walk up and down the aisles doing stretching and yoga routines. You need to go back and forth several times. Then after you have finished doing that I want you to go to the front of the plane. Yep, go to the front of the plane where the flight attendants have their area. Go right up to there and start doing plies right there. If the flight attendants are there it doesn't matter. Just take over their station and start practicing your ballet. When they order you back to your seat, or depending on your ethnicity thrown you in some handcuffs, just tell them that Uma Thurman could do it so why couldn't you?
According to the NY Post, Uma did just that on a flight that was about four hours long. Now, I think on any flight that is over a certain amount of time you are going to get up, and stretch. I just think that if you tried to do what Uma did you would be beat down. Can you imagine if the entire plane had said, "wow, I think I'm going to do the same thing" that they would have got away with it? I don't think so.
If Uma had been smoking in the bathroom she would have got in trouble. I don;t doubt that. I just think that when it comes to certain behaviors that celebrities get treated much differently than "everyday people." I'm not sure if anyone other than a celebrity or someone very used to getting their own way would have basically taken over the flight attendant's area for 20 minutes and made it their very own personal workout space.
Are we meek? Do we just accept being herded and kept in our places? Maybe we should be more like Uma and do as we please. Did Uma do it because she is Uma or did Uma do it because she knew no one would stop her?
