Examples of interested in a Sentence

  1. Eric Trump:

    We live in a climate where everything will be used against us, whether by the fake news or by Democrats who are only interested in Presidential harassment and wasting everyone's time, barraging us with nonsense letters. We already have the greatest properties in the world and if we have to slow down our growth for the time being, we are happy to do it.

  2. Gregory Peck:

    I hold no brief for Communists, but I believe in and will defend their right to act independently within the law. I question whether members of the committee are interested in defending our form of government or whether they are attempting to suppress political opinion at odds with their own.

  3. Hilary Duff:

    Was incredibly excited to launch' Instagram Lizzie McGuire' on D + and my passion remains ! However, I feel a huge responsibility to honor the fans' relationship with LIZZIE who, like me, grew up seeing themselves in Instagram Lizzie McGuire, i'd be doing a disservice to everyone by limiting the realities of a 30 year old's journey to live under the ceiling of a PG rating. It's important to me that just as her experiences as a preteen/teenager navigating life were authentic, her next chapters are equally as real and relatable. It would be a dream if Disney would let us move the show to Hulu, if they were interested, and I could bring this beloved character to life again.

  4. Orrin Konheim:

    DuVernay, who is African-American, told Entertainment Weekly. I was interested in … a heroine that looked like the girls I grew up with. DuVernay said she identified with some progressive ideas she found in L'Engle's novel. She's a very radical thinker and she embedded her sense of what society should and could be in this piece, and a lot of it I agree with. But does that mean her adaptation will adopt a political tone ? Experts say we shouldn't jump to any conclusions about whatDuVernay’s final film will look like. Freelance journalist Orrin Konheim, who has written for The American Conservative, noted that many films, including The Manchurian Candidate, have been remade with African-American stars. Ava DuVernay’s casting choice seems like a non-issue.

  5. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    The best chapter in your book of life is always the one that's not written yet. Start writing it right away, with your own words and not the ones that get dictated to you by others. You're the only one who can fill those unwritten pages with enthusiasm, passion and dedication. So, take charge of your book of life, and don't ever rely on others who would be least interested in making it either exciting or outstanding. You're the Creator and the Master of your Destiny!
