The piece is still the right thing
Sean Young. Hotshot real time movie star of the 80s. Worked with Michael Douglas, Kevin Costner and Nicolas Cage. I knew her well.
She had told me: “I pay special attention to make-up. Makeup people have to go high My face is not lowered or your face will be pulled out. I’ll go crazy if I’m not treated well.”
After he disappeared from the radar, She can now be seen in Off-B’way’s “Ode to the Wasp Woman.” at Actors Temple Theater. “It’s about four stars with a tragic ending. Very smart. I did this because it’s no secret that actors love to work. I missed New York and they got me a B&B that I love.
“I cook for myself. I don’t eat wheat. Like pasta, it is highly processed and promotes inflammation. It’s hard for your body to eliminate its toxins. I will never eat a sandwich. My diet is boring. Sometimes it bores me.
“I don’t know where I’ll go after this. But that’s just show business, I guess. Another play I want to do is in a 900-seat theater in Arizona. Would I ever choose show business again in another life? My caveat would be that I would do it again if I could learn the preservation skills better.
“I was lucky. ICM signed me in 1978 and a month later I got a film called Jane Austen with James Ivory and Ismail Merchant, which was a real boom from the start.
“Maybe I would like to direct because I’m a bit bossy. . . and I still apply my own makeup – go high. And I look pretty good for 63.”
What you should see
A lot of showfolk pompoms are being auctioned off. Suddenly Brando’s watch is at hand. It’s from 1972 and was worn in “Apocalypse Now.” It will be auctioned at Christie’s in Geneva. Expected to be brought – ready? – $1 million, maybe $2 million. He personally engraved his name on the back and then gifted it to his family. It’s currently up for grabs.
Francis Ford Coppola didn’t want him to wear it in the film. Marlon said, “I’m not doing my job as an actor if they look at my watch.” Now everyone’s looking at it.
Happy little crowd
MORE oldies are returning. Remember lamb chop? Not the food, the doll. That was Shari Lewis and her sock with a smile – Lamb Chop. Now comes a documentary about “Shari & Lamb Chop”. The Doll’s Film opens Saturday at Angelika’s Village East. Start is 6:30 a.m. Bring a baked potato.
A real stand-up guy
Famous people like immortality. A book, a doctor, her name on a toilet wall. Britney, Prince Hairy Harry, Jada Pinkett Smith etc. Now Ben Stiller, Rob Reiner, Chris Rock, Sharon Stone and Conan O’Brien are raving in the movie “Albert Brooks: Defending His Life”. Judd Apatow: “I wrote down everything that comedian said.” Letterman: “I would rather have his career than mine.”
MONDAY is former CNN star Brian Stelter’s book party at Michael’s. Host: NY1’s wife Jamie. The title of the book: “Network of Lies”. Pub date Tuesday. . . ABC News is currently preparing a documentary about Barbara Walters. . . Others grab a few little things to make money. Kardashian sells drawers, Gwyneth pushes Goop. But not Hunter Biden – and that’s because his product only comes in one size.
Today’s medical system? Four out of five doctors now recommend another doctor.
Mostly only in New York, children, only in New York.
