Celebrity Body Types: James Cromwell

James Cromwell - Saturn

James Cromwell - Saturn

James Cromwell, who played the patient farmer in Babe is an excellent example of the Saturn type. His grave demeanor, deliberate pace, and seriousness of tone all express the Saturn body type.

You might be interested to know that Babe has been referred to as the “Citizen Kane of talking-pig movies,” a distinction not to be taken lightly.

The Initial Impact of Studying Body Types (Excerpt)

I was told that one of the major benefits to be obtained from studying types would be the deeper appreciation of our personal subjectivity. When I began to see myself as a type, I would no longer consider my own thoughts, feelings of attitudes as uniquely mine. By showing me that I was invariably a member of a particular type, I hope to see beyond my type, to what was objectively true. And, in fact, over time I did find that this study was the single most practical tool for beginning the work of breaking down the walls of my own habitual life.

I frequently heard those with more experience of types say that it was the most ‘practical’ body of knowledge about people they had ever encountered. After several months I began to realize that this might well be true. Knowledge of the types began to enter every interaction I had, with myself and with others. Every relationship was open for reinterpretation based on what soon became a surprisingly obvious reality. Having begun to acquire some ability to recognize types, I realized I no longer had to compare a mental list of criteria to the person in front of me, but simply recognized their body itself, or even their ‘energy.’
