Model Answer 1:
Oscar-winning Hollywood actress, Angelina Jolie, underwent different transformations in her life and achieved the highest popularity among the other Hollywood female actress. I would like to meet her at least once in my life.

I have watched different movies of Angelina Jolie and her performances on those made me amazed. She is also a social activist and humanitarian in line with her acting career in Hollywood movies. She is an adorable actress and considered as an asset for Hollywood for her beauty, acting skill and soft heart. She is the woman with a very special intelligence in the combination of ready wits, dazzling beauty and all of her performances are outstanding. I have started liking her after watching the Lara Croft: Tomb Raider and have already watched all her movies. In her career, she played the role of UN Goodwill Ambassador besides her acting. She also gained fame in her out of screen appearances and activities in international charity programs and gradually turned the second most wanted female artist in Hollywood.

Born in an actor family in the USA, Angelina Jolie is globally famous for several reasons. Firstly she is famous for her physical beauty and superb performance. She is able to represent the characters perfectly which is the cause of envy for the other female actress. On the movies like Mr. & Mrs. Smith, Wanted, Salt etc. she has portrayed herself as the right one for the characters. She is also engaged with different humanitarian activities and mostly works with the refugees. Frequently she appears on the tabloids for her striking splendour. She became globally acclaimed celebrity after her lead appearance on the Tomb Raider series in 2001. She is also considered as the most bankable actress as all of her movies rock the box offices.       

I would like to take a photograph with her at first and then will humbly ask her to describe her feelings when she is praised by the audience. I will also ask her to describe in brief how she participated in different adventurous activities and action scenes on the screen. Her life and living are like a fairy tales to me. She started stage performance from her tender age and became a model in her 16 and performed in music videos. Her Hollywood career started flourishing since the mid-1990s and her acclamation was received first after her role in Gia in 1998, but she got the break with The Bone Collector in 1999. Since I am pursuing modelling in Mumbai, I will seek some real life tips from her too. 

Angelina Jolie is a benevolent woman in her personal life and her humanitarian activities are not merely show-off to gain fame. Her humanitarian feature attracts me more than her beauty and performance skill. She truly is a soft hearted woman and was deeply touched with the conditions of the refugees in Cambodia during her shoot of Lara Croft: Tomb Raider. She, thus, has paid visits to different refugee camps to learn about the conditions of the people and published a book named Notes from My Travels and spends the profits for the betterment of the refugees. She is the only female Hollywood actress who spends one-third of her entire earning for the humanitarian activities. It is the most important reasons for me to love and meet her. I would like to get a touch of the generous woman and pass some moments so that I could learn something useful to be applied in my life.



Model Answer 2:
I feel really good when I meet with someone renowned. So far, I have met with a huge number of celebrities of various countries and now wish to meet with Leonardo Wilhelm DiCaprio, better known as Leonardo DiCaprio. He is a versatile artist and has performed in many cinemas made in Hollywood. Thank you for the smart question, and I will answer it in brief now.

Leonardo DiCaprio is not only an actor, he is also a producer. He began his career by television commercial and then got involved in television series. His film career began in 1991 and since then he has been starring in various kinds of movies. The most important thing about him is that he is able to get into the character he is performing and has praised for his roles everywhere. But recognition for him appeared in 1995. He established himself as a romantic hero with his outstanding performance.

He is mostly famous for his extraordinary role in the movie ‘Titanic’. The movie brought him fame across the world. The movie also was one of the highest grossing movies made ever. Besides, Leonardo DiCaprio has also taken part in other famous movies like Romeo + Juliet, Catch Me If You Can, Gangs of New York, Django Unchained, The Great Gatsby and others. But I think, he is mostly famous for the role in the movie – Titanic. Besides, he has received many positive criticisms for his wide range of performances. In fact, his massive uplift began after the year of 2000. By this time, he experienced a huge number of ups and downs in his career which have enriched him to be a man of today. Beginning the career as a supporting actor, he is now a heartthrob for many of his audiences.

Actually, there is nothing more to do for me other than talking with him about his life, his experiences, ups and downs of life and how he survived the situations. Besides, I have a plan to make the moment ever reminding, and so I will take some photographs with him. Hunting autographs was another hobby for me but due to lack of time and attempts, I have almost given up the habit. So, I also intend to have his autograph in my autograph book. Besides, I want to pass some quality moments with him and continue conversations for few moments. In fact, I want to let him know about my passion for him and how I have turned his fan. He is one of the best actors I have ever known in my life. So, meeting with him would be a great pleasure for me.

I want to meet with him for various reasons. The beginning of his career was not smooth. He experienced numerous ups and downs in his career. But he kept patience and continued to work with hard effort. He started focusing on characters and started starring in some selected movies. Some of his performances are epic and still amuse the viewers. But the most important thing I have found in him is courage. He is brave enough to take some giant moves even after maintaining a low profile for long days in the movie industry. But now he is one of the highest-paid artists of Hollywood. I think I also could have some impressive words from him to survive in life and deal with challenges. For all such reasons, I want to meet him.
