Quote from Iris played by Kate Winslet in The Holiday

“You’re supposed to be the leading lady in your own life, for God’s sake!”

AS I was watching the movie mindlessly for the millionth time, this sentence suddenly jumped at me as Iris started realizing how stupid she’s been for letting her emotions over a useless twit take over her life. Her delivery of the message in the scene was profound as the realization of her stupidity was made clear in the middle of a restaurant. This is one of my favorite quotes as it reminds me that we shouldn’t be pushed and we have the power to create our own destiny no matter how difficult the challenge and the situation.

If you're referring to the fact that I've seen it a million times, it was more because they were showing it over and over again on Astro. Its a chick flick so I love it obviously.
