Olympia Dukakis leads lesbian road movie 'Cloudburst'

Mar 7, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Medincine Hat News

And so for their third collaboration, he sent her on a wild career turn as a foul-mouthed lesbian on the lam for his road comedy "Cloudburst." The Oscar-winning actress - arguably best known for playing the no-nonsense matriarch in "Moonstruck" - admits she was a bit surprised when she saw the film for the first time.

All of them, either great or unknown bit players, were in constant fear of the next job. Even while working on something, as soon as they got off camera, they were on the phone to their agent, or staff, hungering for the next project.
Unless they are some hugely wealthy big name, who has more money than he or she can spend, and they just work for it is fun.
Even back in my SEG/SAG days, I always gravitated to the techies. The actors and producers are all more than a bit nuts.

The techies' parties were more fun, and less about networking for the next job. A techie who simply does their job will always have work. It's pretty much the same for the extras, too. DO your job, avoid cultivating a particular look or style, try HARD not stand out, and NEVER take a speaking part and you'll work a lot.

<quoted text>Too true! I see a lot of big production pictures on HBO or SHO and though they were heavily touted, were out of theaters in 2 weeks. They are SO bad, I wonder who green lighted them!
For instance, I just watched "Battleship" recently. It was interesting for 5 minutes and then went HORRIBLE and stupid. I was so glad I did NOT pay to see it in a theater.
I just got back into my 8 year old mind and enjoyed it immensely. It was big bangs with lots of funny. Did you notice the age focus on the kids in the movie?(on the quay beside the battleship; in the cars on the overpass; on the baseball field) 7-10 yrs.

It was a well-enough done kid's flick.

BTW: Did anyone else notice that little Matty Dallas came out on his twitter account in January, announcing his engagement to his boyfriend, Blue? Maybe I shouldn't say "little" He IS 30 now. lol That really made me smile.

<quoted text>At any time, about 3% of the Actors' Guild members are making even minimum wage, and the expenses are off the charts...agents, managers, staff, taxes, I would be surprised if even a star of Julia Roberts went home with half of her take.
How many big stars have ended up bankrupt over the years? Plenty.
Less than 50%.

On top of that, it's a company town. Most of what goes on there has it's hand in the pockets of those who do work. I gave up my membership card because I didn't want to live there.

My friends were like me, backstage or behind a camera and we would work till we dropped. It was tough, but I was younger, and miss the crackle of it, though not the horrible hours and back breaking work. However, I did not envy the stars' plight.

We got to go to Tippi Hedren's star unveiling on Hollywood Blvd. about 5 years ago. It was really fun to be BEHIND the ropes for once. Anyway, the rabble on the street were truly scary and not one had a full set of teeth. If one of the VIP'S should look over at them the crowd went insane. It got to the point that I thought they might break down the feeble little temporary fences.

I was standing near Tippi's daughter, Melanie Griffith, and asked her "is it ALWAYS like this?" She nodded sadly. "Yep."

Um you DO know that she is an ACTRESS, don't you? You know what actors do, they pretend to be others, not themselves.

I guess according to YOU, then Anthony Hopkins is a cannibal, and the kids in the Harry Potter movies can do magic, and Rock Hudson was hetero since he always played macho womanizers, and Olympia Dukakis is REALLY Cher's mother, since she played her in a movie.

Why are you pretty ones always so DUMB?

Yeah Olympia is a dyke so she doesn't Dukakis. Now Uve Dukakis, a whole lot of it.
And YOU are a filthy little cowardly liar who is fooling no one with your trip round the world of false names and locations.

I guess you learned "round the world" from when you were still in your cradle, watching your old skank whore mother perform that sexual act on her many tricks in her one room trailer.

Big talk from someone who believes that Tom Cruise can fly jets, and Meryl Streep is the Prime Minister of England, and Leonardo di Caprio is a slave owner, and Helen Mirren is the Queen of England,....but they all played those roles in movies, so that means they ARE that in real life.

Do you even realize that actors are pretenders, don't you? You can sleep easy, Anne Hathaway did NOT really die in "Les Miserables".

I don't believe any of that, fruitcake. I was implying that Olympia is an ugly old prune and the thought of her made me sick. But true to fashion, you drama queens make it all about you and your "sexual identity". No one cares whose pole you are smoking.

Fish? Are you sure? You are a bitter little scumbag. It must be tough. Being me is easy. I'm just normal, well adjusted and not at all confused about my sexuality.
LOL!

How many Oscars have YOU been nominated for, as Miss Dukakis has?

YOU are the one who called her a dyke, for appearing in a lesbian positive movie, not me, tool. I didn't start the stupid train, you did. It looks like you are going to ride it to the end of the line, however.
