Howard Hughes

Howard Hughes


For those who are familiar with this name, you might have seen The Aviator, or you have heard of the billionaire film maker who is eccentric. Yes, I have just seen The Aviator, and I suggest to those who have not seen it, go out this instant and get a copy for yourself. It is a long movie but I loved the cinematography and found his life most interesting.

According to this site, Mr. Hughes was a hypochondriac. Ingvard Wilhelmsen, MD, Ph.D states that Hypochondria is A person with hypochondria is preoccupied with physical health and body. The diagnosis is used when a person during at least 6 months believes, fears or is convinced that he has a serious disease despite medical reassurance.

It's a scary illness that drove Howard Hughes to insanity. Before he died, he drastically changed his appearance and secluded himself from the world. He snapped. So few people recognized him before he died that people were forced to fingerprint him to identify his body.

I was in such awe while I watched Leonardo DiCaprio's performance in the movie. (Not to mention hottie Jude Law)5 stars.




Do you have Hypochodria?
I got a 28. How about you?



This is for the future..This is for the future..This is for the future..This is for the future....
