Instead of those sugary figure skating movies, I would like to see an award winning serious drama entitled the Nicole Bobek Story starring Cameron Diaz as the skater with clips of Michelle B. on the ice. A hoot, No?
At 32 Nicole has not fallen into the wrong crowd; she is the wrong crowd. There are many skaters who were never given things like Nicole was; i.e. time, donated money, coach dedication. Nicole apparently thinks she deserved it all. I know many skaters who went on to great careers with or without skating. They pursued other things in life like they worked hard in their skating. Figure skating teaches values about achievement and working hard. Too much was given to Nicole and she didn't appreciate it. She does not have respect for authority nor the humbleness of appreciation. Involvement in drugs is illegal. For all of us even her.
Cameron is twice as tall as Nicole. Maybe Drew Barrymore could reprise one of her cheesy bad girl roles and play Nicole. She is closer to Nicole's size too.
