Cultural appropriation is real and can be very harmful, but Tumblr en masse has grossly misdefined it. Here are some examples of what isn’t cultural appropriation:
- Eating food from another culture
- Properly practicing a religion from another culture.
Later this month, you’re joining the Once Upon A Time cast as the Frozen character Kristoff. How are you getting into character?
I’ve been taking a lot of ice baths. I’ve been working on my ice-cutting abilities. And I’ve been hanging around with large boulders.
Are you a romantic like Kristoff?
Oh my god, yeah. When I was growing up my favorite movie was Somewhere in Time with Christopher Reeve, which is a hugely romantic, sappy movie. I couldn’t understand it when the guy didn’t get the girl or the girl didn’t get the guy in love stories. I was definitely a sap. (x)
