Anita Gillette

Is she a ... "never married"?

by Anonymousreply 1611/30/2012

I love her.

Her hospital scene with Whoopi in "Boys On The Side" is such a great one:

Anita is crying at her daughter's bedside, the nurse thinks her sniffles are relative to a cold, and tells her she could aggravate her daughter's condition.

Whoopi: It's not a goddamn cold! Don't be such a hoo-hoo.

Nurse: And what's a hoo-hoo?

Anita: It's a cunt, dear. Now why don't you leave us alone?

Also great as the mistress of Cher's father in "Moonstruck."

I swear I heard she'd died a few yeats ago, but I saw her in a movie this weekend on the bus. It was a pre-release, so she's alive.

Met her a few times at The Broadway Cares Equity Fights AIDS Annual Flea Market. Very sweet. She's also terrific as the Dance School owner in "Shall We Dance" with Richard Gere and Jennifer Lopez.

Are you asking if she's a big dyke, OP?

Hang on, I'll go ask Mary Martin. She'll know.

Met her last year. What a lovely woman, kind and complimentary.

Divorced mother of two, grandmother.

LTR with an Englishman.

A great actress, better as she got older, and a terrific lady.

And the Secret Service still makes her nervous!

She plays Liz Lemon's mother on 30 Rock. Wonder if she'll show up tonight for the wedding.

She's in Ed Burns' latest, which ought to be available online, since I don't think his movies are in theaters. Once they do the film festival circuit, they're pretty much released online.

Love her as the other woman Mona in Moonstruck.

Saw her in "All American" with Ray Bolder and as the President's daughter in "Mr. President".

Wonderfully pert ingenue back in the 1960s.

She was also in an older Ed Burns flick, "She's the One". I think she played Jennifer Aniston's mother.

I know she dated Cy Coleman at some point.
