Monsters

Jennie Willoughby, talking to Anderson Cooper last night:

“That’s a question that I am asked a lot: Why did you stay if he was a quote-unquote monster? And the reality is that he’s not a monster. He is an intelligent, kind, chivalrous, caring, professional man — and he is deeply troubled, and angry, and violent.”
One could argue that “intelligent, kind, chivalrous, caring, professional” just makes for a monster who is less likely to be recognized as such.

Is it possible that one is a facade while the other is the real deal?

I think so. I couldn’t help thinking about how charm and psychopathy are often paired.
