I didn't really wanna start a new thread, but I figured it might be a fun topic, providing there are other examples, haha! Anyways, today on Tumblr I read the following quote from Aussie actress Emily Browning who starred in "A Series of Unfortunate Events", "The Uninvited" and "Sucker Punch" (in which she played a character who looked very similar to a certain Miss. Tsukino):

"Sailor Moon was my favorite cartoon of all time, and I’m still kind of obsessed with it. I own all the DVDs and watch it at home. I think I was obsessed with that culture as a kid, like Hello Kitty and Dragon Ball Z." — Emily Browning
Pretty cool, right? That's the first I've heard of a celeb talking about "S.M" and/or saying they're a fan. However, on another Tumblr, I saw an image of a new female rapper, Kreayshawn, who has a tattoo of "S.M" on her arm. ^_^

Anyone else heard of any others?

Seth Green and his wife, fellow actress Clare Grant are fans. Olivia Munn, former co-host of Attack of the Show and former daily show correspondent is also a "fan". (Although, fans speculate the sincerity of Olivia Munn's fandom and wonder if she just used being a fan as an excuse to dress up in a tacky Sailor costume at Comic Con)

Kirstin Dunst is a fan. She said it was her favorite cartoon as a kid, and admits to having a Sailor Moon poster. Lindsay Lohan also mentions that she watched the show as a child. I also believe Christina Agulara said she was a fan once. Some music star did a cover of the theme song, but I forget who.

I believe it was The Ramones who sang the cover of the theme. And The Barenaked Ladies are known for that song "One Week" that mentions Sailor Moon.

I had no idea there were so many! :eeklez:

Come to think of it, it's a wonder Emily didn't mention it when she was doing promo for "Sucker Punch." She must've noticed her character, Baby Doll, was clearly modelled after "Sailor Moon."

How was the character in Sucker Punch modeled after Sailor Moon? I haven't seen the movie, and my curiosity is piqued.

Well, the whole movie was a mash-up of various genre archetypes, like medieval fantasy, futuristic sci-fi, anime, video games, etc. including the way the five female characters were designed. Emily Browning's character, Baby Doll, looks like a darker, sexed up Sailor Moon.

I think the PGSM Senshi actresses are Sailor Moon/PGSM fans themselves. l o l
So are the seiyuu - fans of their own works...to an extent XD
Yeah, even some of the dubbing VAs over here are Sailor Moon fans themselves, e.g. their lockers in their TV station were covered w/ Sailor Moon stickers back then. XD

I remembered that one of the English Dub VAs Katie Griffin (Raye's VA) had a chat with the Totally Spies fans at a Totally Spies website (which died a few years ago now), some fans mentioned her role as Sailor Mars and said that she missed Rei (even typed it this way). She also said she has (or had) a Sailor Mars poster in her bedroom :)

Apparently it was a chat for Team Galaxy (another show created from the same company that did Totally Spies) with her other cast mate Kirby Morrow...

Ah. That's a Hello Nurse moment.

You can see Usagi's head at the bottom of the pic, hehe.

I hate to be the thread's partypooper but I want to demand links/proof on this. :neutral:

Rivers Cuomo of Weezer supposedly has a sticker of the senshi in kimonos on one of his guitars but all I have is a link, no images: http://www.saveoursailors.org/weezer.html
When it comes to SOS, you definitely need proofs. :P (Not that whatever that site says must be untrue, tho.)

For Katie Griffin's one, the website for her online chat with the Totally Spies Fans has been dead for years - since 2008 (I think). The website is called TSPA from my memory. So I cannot provide a link for that. But I have read it and the memory of reading it is still in my head.

As for the seiyuu. Kotono Mitsuishi is a fan of her own show; her profile has Sailor Moon at the very top of her list of anime roles, proves it. She also has posted some Sailor Moon stuff before and apparently from the DVD Event (look at Moonchase) she said that when her daughter was young, they used to watch Sailor Moon together.
