She''s had more undeserved shots at stardom than Marion Davies and Pia Zadora combined.
I truly agree with you, r4.
Is it true that she and her husband are into threesomes?
She is actually a fine film actress. Look again...especially when she has a close up with no dialogue.
I love her and she is actually one of my favorites.
I like her, too but I can''t understand why she''s attracted to abusive men. Her ex-husband used to beat her and so does Josh Brolin. It''s rumored that she and Brolin have an open marriage but it''s still weird that she would chose to stay with an alcoholic who doesn''t try to hide his infidelities. She could do a lot better than him.
She is a former childstar to I''m sure she''s prolly not as healthy in the head as she appears.
A Little Romance
Loved her in Lonesome Dove.
She is unbelievably hot. Not annoying in the least.
You must be a gay man...
I find her very annoying...
I loved her in "The Cotton Club," an underrated gem of a movie. Even Nicholas Cage didn''t suck the life out of it, as he usually does in every movie he''s in.
Very talented and not annoying in the least
I don''t find her annoying, and it''s refreshing that she hasn''t succumb to plastic surgery. She also doesn''t overdo the botox and fillers.\
That said, "Secretariat" looks like it is going to be a turd. Too bad, the horse deserves better.\
R9, how do you know that Christopher Lambert used to beat her? Not doubting you, just want to know. What is up with Josh Brolin?
I love her. Watch everything she is in and never disappointed. She could dump Broslin though.
I love her too.\
I especially loved her in ''Unfaithful'' with Richard Gere. Fabulous movie. Never tire of seeing it.\
She was very attractive in ''Unfaithful'' and the movie is hot with lust and suspense and cool New York City scenes.
I agree with what R9 said.
She does give a decent performance in "Unfaithful". Her Oscar nomination for the film was probably deserved.
Well, I love her more than all of your love for her put together. It was love at first sight.
I think she''s a good actress but she has really made some bad choices. I can''t stand it when she plays opposite Richard Gere. He is such a bad actor that he drags her down with him.
Very tallented but also very dull.
All-American beauty, very delicate features, could have had Michelle Pfeiffer''s career (well, almost.)
She''s just fine but I don''t ever remember her making much of an impact on me from a performance. Just reliable.
Fuck you, OP! You have no taste. I adore her.
Yes, I have taste.
find her pathetic the way she sticks with james brolin. scary and sad.
Who''s her girlfriend?
Really sad childhood.\
I knew someone who knew her as a kid. Everyone at La Mama felt that they had to protect her from her parents.
I love her. She was very sexy in Unfaithful.
No, OP, but I find you very annoying for starting stupid threads like this about a fine actress.
What did her parents do to her, R32?
They were neglectful and I think alcoholic. Her father was more on the scene.\
My friend thinks Fragments of a Greek Trilogy may have saved Lanes life.
How did it save Diane''s life, R36?
Some of the posters are really annoyingly cryptic. If you are going to write something like: "My friend thinks Fragments of a Greek Trilogy may have saved Lanes life.", then please explain what you mean.
I think that argument she had during dinner at Spago''s cost her the Academy Award.
I remember reading an interview after she married Christopher Lambert where she said she had been "used and abused" by her former boyfriend (Jon Bon Jovi apparently) and was scared of AIDS and just wasn''t into dating. She appeared on a French program and Lambert was there and she said "Christopher just wouldn''t take ''no'' for an answer". They married when she was in "Lonesome Dove" and they were driving cross-country--just stopped off somewhere and tied the knot.\
Had a daughter, Eleanor. Not sure why they broke up, but I remember thinking that it was a very romantic story.
Eh, she''s ok. I liked Unfaithful.
I''ve met her a few times - We have mutual friends. She''s very sweet, and very, very shy. Devoted to her children, she''s all about giving them the most normal life possible. I didn''t know her childhood was so fucked up, but that explains a lot of what I''ve observed. She''s very guarded around people she doesn''t know.
For R39 and R37\
At La Mama, Lane finally had adults looking out for her welfare. They liked, valued, and cared for Lane. The parental neglect would likely have done damage had not other adults taken an interest and counter acted it.\
Much later Serban worked with her again at ART, and I remember the interviews indicating a continued degree of parental warmth coming from Serban (who can be a cold fish).
I realize I may be just assuming that it is well-known that Lane was one of the kids in the original Fragments of a Greek Trilogy. She was.\
The weird thing is that when you look at photos, she looks pretty much the same and she must have been 8 year old.
Loved A Walk on The Moon - Must see film and great Woodstock period film.
The Blouse Man
She''s the new Rene Russo.
WHET Rene Russo?
BTW Diane Lane - love her
No Op, I''m another that really likes her.
Loved her in RUNAWAYS and A LITTLE ROMANCE, which makes me weep every time.
Didn''t her parents spend all her money when she was a kid?
Holy shit, I saw the "Secretariat" trailer the other day and had no idea that was Lane as Penny Chenery.
I thought she was great after I saw "Unfaithful," but she tends to star in the shittiest films. I''m pretty much over her now...also, I wish she hadn''t of ruined her face with extensive cosmetic procedures.
They made a huge deal when Unfaithful was released. It was her huge comeback from what I kept hearing but that didn''t seem to go anywhere.
I think she''s aging wonderfully. In Cotton Club and the earlier movies she''s just another pretty plastic blonde. It wasn''t until Walk on the Moon that she really started to be visually interesting. \
Now time will catch up with her, and she may have already peaked in Unfaithful, but the few extra pounds and lines on her face made her so much more beautiful than her 25 year old version.
the crow flies at noon.
WHET Cree Summer?
Cree Summer does the voice of a bunch of fucking cartoon characters. I wonder if her and Lisa Bonet ever bumped muffins on the set of "A Different World"...
[quote]Devoted to her children, she''s all about giving them the most normal life possible.\
She has ONE daughter not children.\
Her mother was a playboy model with huge breasts.
''Ladies and Gentlemen, The Fabulous Stains"\
Watched that as a preteen and loved her
[quote]I wish she hadn''t of ruined her face with extensive cosmetic procedures.\
Eh? What procedures?
Must see film: A Walk on the Moon.\
the soundtrack is good also.
I think she suffered from being seen as the next Jodie Foster. There was a lot of hype about her performance in "A Little Romance", Olivier was very impressed by her and there was a feeling that she would be the next break through child star. I always enjoy her on screen although I don''t think she has a compelling screen presence.
She is odd. I agree with you. I am a female who is also shy and it is refreshing to see someone so weird like that in hollywood I guess...but her blooper reel in must love dogs is weird bc she cannot laugh, she is too uptight. that's the way people are supposed to be though...but it certainly ruins the fun of the movie...certainly odd, certainly difficult to watch because overly aware of surroundings and extremely sensitive. I suppose she's pretty in pictures though. Her astrological profile suits her
Diane is a beautiful woman, should have won the Oscar for "Unfaithful". I've been a fan since I first saw her in "The Outsiders".
Good lookin' gal. Terrific actor. Intelligent and well-spoken. Friendly personality. What's not to like?
She seemed to take over for Rene Russo, the pretty cipher sidekick to the Aging Male Star (Harrison, Mel, Sylvester, Kevin, etc.). Her career stalled after teen-ager for a reason.
More about Cree Summer and Lisa Bonet bumping baked goods on the set of "A Different World" please
Cree Summer was the voice of Foxxy on "Drawn Together." Brilliant work.
Trivia: she grew up on the Red Pheasant Cree native reserve in Saskatchewan.
Diane is gorgeous and talented. Her downfall is her choice of men, including and especially Brolin.
I like her since she said nice things about Keanu and that baseball movie they did together. He also admitted having a crush on her.
She treats me very well. I've no complaints.
She just has no star quality whatsoever.
I love Diane Lane. She makes every role she is in interesting. The Brolin info is disturbing. One can only hope it didn't continue.
I thought she did a great job as the evil and icy foster mother in The Glass House.
Wow! No aging at all since that Time Magazine cover! Oh, wait. I thought you meant Kissinger...
(but yes, Diane Lane is still stunning).
LOVE A Walk on the Moon!
If you've never seen it check it out.
It was produced by Miramax the same year as Shakespeare in Love and the studio abandoned the former in favor of the latter.
Tovah "Bubbe" Feldshuh
great in "Lady Beware"
I know people who were around when Josh Brolin was doing theater in upstate New York back in the 90s in that fallow period between Goonies and now and he was apparently a huge slut who'd sleep with anybody, male or female.
I always found that "She's so old but still hot!" hoopla that surrounded Diane Lane post-Unfaithful so ridiculous - she was only 37 when that movie came out! Everybody acted like she was Jessica Tandy with her tits out.
I think she and Josh Brolin are an incredibly hot couple.
Big Fan. She has aged some, but looks delightful.
She's always hanging out with Maria Bello. Are they fucking?
Pic of Diane and Maria. They look cute together. Great glasses Diane.
I thought she was so sexy in Unfaithful, she reminds me of Erica Hill on the CBS Early Show, always has, I don't know why.
Erica and Diane have similar features (cute nose, for instance), similar body type, I think.
you will NOT speak uncharitably of a member of Goddess Barbra's family, OP.
[quote]I always found that "She's so old but still hot!" hoopla that surrounded Diane Lane post-Unfaithful so ridiculous - she was only 37 when that movie came out! Everybody acted like she was Jessica Tandy with her tits out.
Completely agree. Glad I'm not the only one who thought that was bizarre.
Diane Lane is hot. She's actually a great actress. The Outsiders, Unfaithful, Lonesome Dove...wish she had more roles offered to her.
R96, she hasn't lacked for work.
Does anyone remember the movie The Glass House where Diane plays an "evil" stepmom to Lee Lee.
Yeah, OP. So fucking what?
Diane does seem to have a track record with abusive men. I seem to vaguely recall that Diane Lane and Eric Roberts were dating until Roberts turned on her rather viciously.
Great example of a woman who became incredibly sexy when she aged.
Yep, she looks better in her 40s than in her 20s.
Brantley gave her a rave for her performance in Sweet Bird of Youth. Even better, she gets to paw Finn Wittrock every night and is paid to do so. She rarely even gives Brolin a passing thought these days.
Her performance in "A Little Romance" is one of the best acting jobs by a child that I've ever seen.
she is sexy looking but hell yes she is annoying!
too fake phoney predictable= annoying bitch!
What do you find fake about her?
her acting...& another thing her husband may have cheated on her and be an idiot but she is a cheater as well according to Hollywood rumours
I find it annoying when people use the word "bitch" or "bitches" to describe -- or, worse, address -- their betters.
They're getting divorced.
Who in young Hollywood is most like Diane in her 20s?
If you like Lane at all, do yourself a favor and see "My New Gun", a phenomenal, note-perfect indie from the early 90s starring Lane and James LeGros. It's wickedly funny and always surprising. Sadly it doesn't seem to be streaming anywhere, but is available from Netflix on DVD.
Don't be off-put by the lukewarm IMDB reviews; this one wasn't aimed at the palates of the masses.
Thanks R117 what is it about?
Totally agree, R109. She gives a charming, precocious, and genuine performance.
[quote]She gives a charming, precocious, and genuine performance.
Shes old enough to be my mom but I'd fuck her. She's hot.
She is annoying the same way Diane Keaton is. I've seen her in only two movies Unfaithfull and one other. Didn't like. Nervous, over-sensitive act, like please love me, please. Something desperate about her...
