Mariah's beau, Aaron Mathias, goes Hollywood
If Aaron Mathias has stars in his deep brown eyes, it's no wonder. Barely out of acting school,
this 24-year-old former model has quickly become a focus of casting directors and agents. He's
auditioned for "Sex and the City", "Oz" and "All My Children". He's working on a feature film
with Academy Award-winning director Sarah Kernochan, whose documentary "Thoth" is up for an Oscar,
and he's got back-to-back meetings with New York talent scouts.|
Why are things breaking his way? It certainly doesn't hurt that he's been linked romantically with
Mariah Carey. "I feel like my life has become a Hollywood movie," he said during a recent interview.
"You know, one of those old films where the country boy leaves his hometown for the big city
because he's gotta get in films. He's starving and just about to pack it up when he gets the big
break, and everybody bursts out singing while Fred and Ginger dance across the stage."
Actually, in Mathias' case, that's not far from the truth. Four years ago, Mathias packed his bags,
stuffed a $100 bill in his back pocket and left his small hometown of Harris, Mich., for the Big
Apple. He went to acting school - he studied at the Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theater
and the Caymichael Patten Studio in Manhattan - and tended bar to pay the rent on a shoebox-size
Long Island City apartment he shared with three roommates.
One night, while he worked at Tonic, a stranger approached and told Mathias he had what it took to
make it in film. "I'm thinking, Yeah, right," he said. Two months later, the stranger, who turned
out to be Curt Johnson of New World Inc., a manager who handles actors and is also a producer
(he's up for an Oscar with "Thoth"), started lining up auditions for Matthias.
As for the new woman in his life, he won't say where they met (Sundance, it is rumored), but he
mentions he had a great time at the Super Bowl in New Orleans (where MC sang the national anthem).
"I've always been a Patriots fan," he said. "Seeing them play was a childhood dream come true."
For Mathias, the dream is just beginning.
Many thanks to Mariah

Jake, you nailed it. I forgot to mention My All but it's pretty apprecited outside the "lambily". In a way Mariah as Hero and AIWFCIY as signature songs. I think both will stay around for long time. As long as there are "Idols" like shows Mariah will stay around, even 100 years from now, because her songs were built for a type of voice anyone will ... read more

Thanks Jon, glad you liked it. Marissa, I felt I did address your questions, but I was more or less summing up specific comments made on the board over the past few months. "Delusional" wasn't a reference to your post, but plenty of people on the board have used that terminology recently. Also, "haters" wasn't a reference to this board. More like t... read more

I loved your response and I never thought of the MC situation that way. It is refreshing to hear different perspectives. As much as I like the modern music and songwriting too, the earlier years saw more intricate and sophisticated songwriting from Mariah. It was almost unreal how advanced and sophisticated her songwriting was when she was just in ... read more
