    θεατρίνα

    Να ρωτήσω ακόμα κάτι. Μπορούμε να χρησιμοποιήσουμε τον όρο ham για τη λέξη θεατρίνα?
    Πρόκειται για κάποιον που χρησιμοποιεί το συγκεκριμένο όρο για να μιλήσει υποτιμητικά για μια ηθοποιό.

    Αν έλεγες θεατρίνα την κόρη σου, επειδή της αρέσει να θεατρινίζει για να τραβάει την προσοχή, θα ταίριαζε το «She's a ham». Το ίδιο και όταν το λες για ηθοποιό του κινηματογράφου, ότι υπερβάλλει στο παίξιμό της όπως όταν βρίσκεσαι στο σανίδι και πρέπει να σ' ακούσουν μέχρι τον τελευταίο εξώστη.
