#WCW: Frances McDormand
She’s back and better than ever
Here at PureWow HQ we’re suckers for a comeback. Hence, the obvious choice for this week’s #WCW: the incomparable Frances McDormand.
After a ten-year hiatus from the spotlight, the actress returned this November with the title role (and a triumphant debut as producer) in the HBO book-to-TV miniseries Olive Kitteridge.
We recently hunkered down and binged on the entire thing and were, well, mesmerized by her performance as the endearingly filterless Mrs. Kitteridge. The series itself is both darkly funny and totally heartbreaking. (Life--the agony! The beauty!)
Between Olive, Frances’s outspoken words on embracing aging naturally and the fact that she dresses her Academy Award up in Ken doll sunglasses, we’re pretty smitten with the 57-year-old tour de force.
