20 Comments on "As I Began to Love Myself"
Great words, from the silent movie star…
This doesn’t sound like Chaplin; the language is wrong. I believe that the poem “As I Began To Love Myself” was written by Kim McMillen, not Chaplin. Check out this link: http://www.amazon.com/When-I-Loved-Myself-Enough/dp/0283073373
The article reads….. This poem read by Charlie Chaplin on his 70th birthday; originally written by Kim.
Yes you are absolutely correct – this beautiful writing was written by Kim McMillen who wrote the delightful, touching book ‘ When I loved myself enough ‘ . Read it !!
We were told it was written by Kim McMullen and Read by Charlie Chaplin !!!!!
Ahem: A poem read by Charlie Chaplin on his 70th birthday (April 16, 1959), originally written by Kim McMillen:
the article said he READ the poem by Kim McMillen on his 70th birthday
It didn’t say that when I made my post. Clearly it’s been updated.
It says that right at the top!

But Kim McMillen apparently wrote it in 1996…. Weird.
This is probably one of those things where a famous person is said to have read/said something. In other words, Charlie Chaplin couldn’t have read this because it was written long after 1959.
How astute of you Marina! Thank you. (I actually just ordered McMillen’s book!)
Please stop. This has, through the years, been credited to Charlie Chaplin. It is however, a translated text from Kim Mcmillen’s book entitled “When I loved myself enough.” Chaplin did recite it on his 70th birthday; perhaps that is why it is so often attributed to him.
Friends Upliftconnect.com thank you for beauty Materia, is tribute a Charlie Chaplin ,know how how credit for Charlie Chaplin,. is beauty reflection share feel with simplicity share you are think use a voice of heart
How could Charlie Chaplin have read this in back in 1959, when Kim McMillen wrote (a version) of this in 1996??? Makes no sense! Also, she passed away later that same year. That being said, I love the message.
