Do you think Sally Fields deserves a better career?

I mean seriously. She's won two Oscars and an Emmy and she's not even an A-lister. She's so pretty too even at age 66.

Not all of us can be A listers dear. It takes beauty, talent...youth.

No, because she's had a great career. Anyone who'd like to be a well-regarded working actor would be overjoyed to have Sally Field's career.

Sally was the lead of a TV show at 19 and had a fantastic career. She's worked for a long time so maybe she is quite happy after the grind of long days and months on Brothers and Sisters to enjoy a bit of time not working. I'm guessing it's more a choice rather than getting no offers.

Of course any really good, high profile roles for Sally's age will be offered to Meryl.

The name is Field.

OP, doesn't your post answer itself. She won TWO Oscars. Most actresses don't even get one.

She's had her moment in the sun, but did get an Oscar nomination last year for "Lincoln".

She's done better than 99% of women in the business. Not everyone can be at the top all the time.

OP, she went from "Gidget" and "The Flying Nun" on TV to two Oscars.

That almost NEVER happens.

Once she played Tom Hanks' mother, her leading status on film was doomed.

For someone who grew up in the business Sally is remarkably normal. She has had a great career, respect from her peers, three sons who adore her and enough money to do pretty much as she pleases. Sally feels both lucky and grateful.

She'd still like to be up there with Meryl.

Did she say that, R9?

Yes, but don't tell her I told you.

That bitch did fine. Lord have mercy. Put her ass in a dung hut in Africa for a week. See how much she longs for a better career after that.

I can't say shit... I see younger guys at the grocery store, in nice clothes, fitter than I was at that age, driving off in a nice car, and all my talk about accepting my age and my life til now flies out the window. I end up sitting in my car in the parking lot feeling sorry for myself for getting older. Damn.
