"My community was like ‘You’re selfish for being an actor and you should be doing things for God.’ But it’s something I love and I’m an artist, and I just never really fit in with that. So I moved to L.A. and I was just so much more comfortable here. And there are more people here who are universally accepted for who they are and that is really really important to me. Nothing infuriates me more than small-minded people. Nothing. I hate it. I absolutely hate it."
From scoring 109 goals as a field player in high school to becoming the worlds greatest female goalkeeper. From getting benched in the 2007 World Cup semi-final against Brazil to getting a shut out and winning a gold medal in the 2008 Olympics against Brazil. From having major shoulder surgery nine months before the 2011 World Cup to winning the Golden Glove and Bronze Ball. Happy Birthday Hope. You’re the greatest.
