Damn straight

This article in today’s New York Times does a nice job highlighting superb actresses who act their age, and then some: Kyra Sedgewick, Holly Hunter, Helen Mirren, Glenn Close, Sally Field, Minnie Driver and my absolute favorite (among these other favorites), Mary Louise Parker.

The lede to the article hints at the compulsion in Hollywood to alter one’s appearance in order to get jobs, aka look younger. But in this pack of women, you really don’t care – they can look any age they want as far as I’m concerned. If I watched tv, I’d be watching them for the acting, not for their appearance.
