We know it’s possible for one actor or actress to excel at many different roles, but we didn’t realize it was also possible for many actors to perfectly recreate just one. W magazine sat down with 29 different celebrities and had them read lines from that iconic scene from Gone With The Wind — there’s just one thing: the roles were gender-swapped.
The magazine gathered up some of the best names in the business, from Samuel L. Jackson to Amy Schumer, and each performer brought their own awesome twist to the lines we’ve heard so many times before. The actresses performed the famous “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn” line a la Clark Gable, and the actors read Vivien Leigh’s “If you go, where shall I go? What shall I do?”
Some people, like Kristen Wiig, made the line comedic, while others, like Eddie Redmayne, brought so much emotion and sincerity you’d think they’d been preparing for weeks.
However, they all had one thing in common, and that’s being mind-blowingly talented. You can watch this video over and over and still find nuances and new ways to appreciate the same few sentences, and that’s definitely something to give a damn about.
