List Of Actresses I Imagine My Sister Admires But Have Not Bothered To Ask
Meryl Streep: The pre-eminent diva emeritus, Ms. Streep has been tearing it up on stage and screen since before Beyoncé ever woke up like anything at all. I don’t know because I haven’t bothered to ask, but my sister seems like she has probably watched “The Devil Wears Prada” on DVD and related to Anne Hathaway’s character… but secretly admired Meryl’s. I ain’t mad!
Audrey Hepburn: The Divine Ms. H(??), Audrey Hepburn only starred in six films, I once told my dad while “My Fair Lady” played on Turner Classic Movies. He told me that couldn’t be right and swiftly logged on to IMDB to prove me wrong. My sister wasn’t present for this incident, but I imagine she would have ignored us and focused on the film.
Oprah Winfrey: Technically an actress, who alive doesn’t admire Lady O? (??) Sure, haters abound when it comes to the subject of a proud, assertive lady-billionaire, but my sister has never been one to be swayed by popular opinion or arbitrary hatred. In all likelihood, and I don’t know for sure, I’m just guessing, she admires Oprah for her strength and passion but, like many of us, didn’t make the leap to the Oprah Network. Ces la vie. Maybe next time!
Dakota Fanning: My sister may or may not know who this person is, but if she did, I am certain that she would admire Ms. Fanning’s precocious attitude and steadfast gumption. Gumption in regards to what, however, I am not sure. Note that, in this example, my sister is admiring Dakota Fanning as a child actress and is uninterested in her adult career.
Amy Adams: Like many (some?) of us, my sister may have seen “Doubt” for the predictably solid Meryl Streep performance but was blown away by Ms. Adams’ screen presence. My sister, probably, came for the Streep and stayed for the Adams, so to speak. I mean, I can only assume. I have no idea. She may have also seen the Muppet Movie, which I think Amy Adams was also in, but your guess is as good as mine on that one.
