A friend called her exquisite and beautiful. I think she epitomizes plainness. GG's hair is her salvation.
Whom do you agree with?
I kind of disagree with both of you. She's attractive in a striking kind of way, but not beautiful. I like her too-big nose and that she didn't get it done, and you're right that her hair, along with her skin, is her best feature. She has a cute smile, too. She is certainly prettier than her mother and sister, but some people may think that's not saying much.
She's most certainly not prettier than her mother was at her age.
Wasn't she fucking beautiful Billy Crudup for a while?
Wait, isn't Grace Gummer what they called Nancy Reagan when she was gaining notoriety as the Blowjob Queen of Hollywood?
She is my third favorite child.
My son, Louisa, Grace and then of course Mamie.
Don't listen to this, Grace. You're attractive as one could imagine, given the material nature had to work with.
The Gummer sisters are fast becoming the new Kardashians for me. Please stop trying to make these plain janes happen. Watching Mamie act is like watching dandruff fall. I have never seen Grace in anything but her choice of beau tells me all I need to know about her. Go away, you no talent spawn of Streep! BTW, is Mamie having an affair with John Gallagher?
R3 and R7, I want to have a three-way with Crudup and Gallagher.
I always enjoy Mamie on The Good Wife, and she's strong in The Newsroom as well. Why do people think she's boring?
Those unfortunate looking creatures would be waitstaff at that horrible Company if not for their famous mother.
The Gummer sisters could be a lot worse. Trust me.
You can watch Grace Gummer in a short series of YouTube webisodes here:
She's ugly, just like Mamie. Those untainted trolls would be planning Junior League events if they weren't Meryl's daughters.
Lily Rabe is far more talented than the Gummer's.. Funny how they are contemporaries and yet Lily is more talented than the Gummer's.
Odd. You'd think Saint Meryl, Glen, or even Jessica Lange would have the one talented offspring. But instead it is the late Jill Claybergh who easily had the most talented child.
Jill Clayburgh was easily more talented than Meryl, R15. I miss her so.
sadly all the kids meryl streep got are pretty homely
Grace strikes me as a plain girl--or someone who would be viewed as plain years ago--who conducts herself like a beauty and has the hair toss thing down pat. She'll be fine unless she has to share the scene with someone who is actually beautiful.
Shouldn't it be "With whom do you agree?"
Nope, it's okay to end sentences with prepositions.
I personally know Jill Farren Phelps. I can get her a job on Y&R, but Meryl has forbad them to be on soaps. She's always looked down on soaps.
[quote]A friend called her exquisite and beautiful.
A friend of hers or a friend of yours?
If a friend of hers - understandable.
If a friend of YOURS - get new friends.
I liked her fine on THE NEWSROOM. She can be a character actor. She'll do fine.
Louisa's quite lovely.
Mamie is hopelessly plain.
Grace looks so much like her mother as she appeared in Manhattan. That witchy face and exactly the same hair style. But Mama's not a natural blonde-her daughters are? Henry has dark hair.
Saw Grace in Frances Ha. She was fine. I actually like Mamie. Is Louisa an actress because she's quite beautiful.
Grace said in an NPR interview that Louisa was still in college and was considering it. There was an undeniable tinge of worry in her voice.
Grace was horrid in AHS Coven last night. If they wanted her to be good they should have put her in a scene with Precious (Gracie would be Meryl next to that dreadful girl).
Grace is pretty but the young Meryl was much prettier than any of her daughters. Mamie and Grace only get bit parts; they rarely get leading roles. It makes you wonder abut them. I don't think they will become major movie stars like Meryl. Meryl still has all the talent. I find Grace so boring on film.
She looks a lot like her mom at that age. She does have wonderful hair.
Grace is pretty. Do you think she is Jack Nicolsons daughter.
I totally agree they wouldn't be given a 2nd look if it weren't for their mother. But the question I would like answered is why would they put themselves in this position to begin with? Find their own career.
This one of jack Nicolsons daughters
Do you think Grace is his too?
Louisa has her mother's eyes and her father's nose. Lucky girl. She and her brother are the good looking Gummers. I bet neither one becomes an actor. I know the brother is supposed to be a musician. Is he any good?
I agree. You think they would try different careers than acting.
I really think they get some of their acting jobs because of nepotism.
Their acting ability is just passable; not anything fantastic. A million actresses could of played the parts that they are in, but they don't get the chance because their mother is not Meryl Streep.
I always thought that Julianne Nicholson was related to Jack. She looks a lot like him. More than his actual kids. I think the love of his life was his first wife Sandra Knight. Broussard looks a little like her ,but in her youth, Knight was much more beautiful. She's also a very good actress.
If anything Grace's nose is thinner than her moms. I don't see any Jack features in her.
Henry is good looking. If you look at his twitter page it seems that he has a big interest in photography. He doesn't seem to have talent for singing or songwriting. As far as celebrity kids go, it's Barbra Streisands's son who has a beautiful singing voice. Henry's song, Don't Stop the Train was featured in Julie and Julia and as background music in Mamie's show, Emily Owens M.D. This is pure nepotism.
I don't think that Grace is jack Nicolson's daughter. I know there a lot of rumors about Meryl and Jack having an affair, but I don't believe it.
Wasn't Ironweed made after Grace was born?
Yes a few years after she was born.
I'm more inclined to believe Louisa is the "odd child" if you know what I mean. Not necessarily Jack's, but she looks different enough from her sibs.
[quote] He doesn't seem to have talent for singing or songwriting.
He moved to LA to build his music career. Is her really not talented in that department? Meryl must have big monthly bills to pay.
Louisa looks more like her father and Meryl's mother.
Grace is coming back with a second season of Paloma on WIGS, written and directed by Julia Styles on Youtube. She was so boring on the first season.
Heartburn was made around the time Grace was conceived
I think Meryl was pregnant with Grace during Heartburn. I still don't think Meryl had an affair
She was only good in The Newsroom during Hallie's Skype conversations with Jim.
she is boring on Extant.
Henry Wolfe (Gummer) looks a lot like his father, only better.
I've watched a couple of his music videos and the songs were pretty dull. One of them features David Strathairn's older son Tay on piano (the two of them wrote that song "Stop the Train" used in JULIE AND JULIA).
Tay Strathairn is now part of the band Dawes.
I'm not concerned with her looks. It's her lack of acting ability that's bothersome. Watching her swinging her hair on "Extant", come on. This is acting for a high school play with adoring parents looking on.
R48, tbh everyone's boring on Extant.
Henry's attractive. I wonder if he likes the peen?
Grace has no screen presence. Very little personality
I don't think that Mamie or Grace will last long in show business.
There is nothing special about them. Mamie should consider getting her nose done.
Lily Rage is far more talented than any of the Gummer girls and she has obviously not had any work done at all.
She might be a bitch. But she is a talented bitch.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
