  1. Lucy is such a talented and classy actress, she really has the same charm like Audrey Hepburn and other movie stars from the 50s and 60s! Finally seeing her up there in Hollywood after Sing Street and Bohemian Rhapsody makes me nothing but proud 💗🤧 She really is one of her kind and brings back the charisma of a real Hollywood beauty, which is pretty rare these days.

  2. I learnt a little bit english with one of our ex beaurocrate rtd commionier and than chat with cam girls i cant speak fluently because no girl was ready to accept me what iam

  3. When the enemy gets destroyed,, they wont live to witness your success it is better they are in effective and see you successful and be put to shame perhaps they will be forced to celebrate with you. Bravo to this lady wish her continual and unstoppable success in her further achievements in her programmes.

  4. If she got a voice over role she would voice a younger version of Moira Quirks character. Her or Naomi Watts or Charli XCX.
    Or daughter of Moira Quirks character

  5. If you are reading this God bless you and your family 💖hope you are successful in life ❤️❤️

  6. i born and raised in Macau(HK), never been to the states, i picked up my accent from Friends, Malcolm in the middle and Boy meets world.

  7. She would make a great Daisy Buchanan. Also, why does he have to make everything smutty. Head Girls and boys have been around practically since the British Education system began, it is just a student position of authority and they represent the school. Similar to a Prefect. Not everything has to be degraded.

  8. You're absolutely right! I live in the third world country called Russia and I am learning to speak just like You!

  9. The american obsession with accents is 2nd only to the brazilian obsession with the portuguese accents between brazilian and european portuguese. Jeez you both can't talk about any subject without bringing the accent into the talk

  10. I didn't get the 'third world country' thing! Why is that everyone should know to speak American or British! I thought everyone was free to speak their own accents just like Americans and Britishers do…

  11. What is so hilarious about head boy or head girl. I was always head boy because I was and am a great student but it had nothing to do with power. It had more to do with keeping order and supporting the teacher and the teaching effort and the education of all my classmates. Head boys and girls do , do something, they are like the teaching fellows and teaching assistants at these schools. They are also called "proctors" or 'head proctors" or "head prefects". I don't see what the subtext is here. I have heard the colloquial "giving head" which refers to a sexual act (oral s-x) but it is "head girl" not "girl who gives head" they are two very different things.

  12. They don't have head boy and girls in America? I suppose they make up for it with all the homecoming kings and queens etc. They must get so confused reading Harry Potter tho

  13. Ya my school also have headboy and headgirl. Although I am from india ,may be due to British colonisation remainings.

  14. She is so underrated, but so beautiful and incredibly talented. I loved her since her movies as a child ♥️♥️♥️

  15. She is fantastic in Sing Street. Highly recommend if you are looking for a cute fun movie with good music – with lots of great classic songs and new tracks as well.
