I’ve never written a fan letter– so think of this as a “friend” letter– because after seeing many of your films, that’s how I think of you.
As someone I’d like to know.
How could anyone NOT like you?
As usual, you were wonderful in your latest film—Please Give.
So was the rest of the cast.
I liked the film, but didn’t LOVE it— if you really want me to be honest.
And I know you would—because you’re so honest and real.
Whether you’re playing a Yuppie or a hippie or Harper Lee, I believe every word, every gesture.
You never hit a false note. You even look authentic.
Like in a movie sometimes when you have no makeup on—- if I squint a LOT little— you look like me when I wake up in the morning (after you subtract a few inches in height and add on a few wrinkles and LOTS of a few pounds.)
Actually…..I should be as honest as you are.
So strike that.
You look nothing like me in the morning or any other time– even though I wish you did.
But you do look like a real person would look in real life.
Your real life is a total mystery to me–what you think or who you wear or where you wear it.
You’re that rare actress who stays under the radar— which makes me like you even more even though I would hate you for being so thin.
And since I’m being honest here, I have to confess one last thing.
You know all those nice things I said about you that I think must be true about you?
You’re an actress; that’s your job.
And did I mention: you’re really, really good at it?
