Parker Posey

She's so underrated. Any gossip or stories about her?

by Anonymousreply 112October 13, 2021 11:34 PM

I don’t think she’s underrated. She’s yet to give the epic, serious performance she’s obviously capable of, imo.

I find her one note and over the age of 35, often annoying. She has some good roles now and then.

But it’s a PERFECT NOTE, R5. Range is NOT a virtue, despite what uppity fans and critics think.

As for an epic, serious performance: her arc on Louie was one of the best performances in TV history, and no one is allowed to disagree with me on that.

Years ago, I watched the TV movie she did with Shirley MacLaine about Mary K and I thought she was great (as far as her post-90s indie arthouse queen reign goes).

I’m excited for her to play Freda Black. She has a crazy life story and I think Posey will do the part justice.

I’m not a Ari Aster fan, but I recognise how in-demand he is and it’s cool she has a role in his latest film.

I would love to see her collaborate with Mike White. I feel like they’re from the same food group.

by Anonymousreply 53August 16, 2021 4:20 PM

I've shared this story a few times on DL, but it never gets any traction. I was an invited guest of film producers at Sundance in 2017. Parker was staying in the same chalet (probably 9 of us total). It's very different being in the same home with someone for x4 days (x2 of those we were all snowed in,) v having a few drinks with them in a bar randomly. I can't say she wasn't nice, but she would essentially ice all of us out after arranged social functions until she was ready to reappear. Then she would sashay in the kitchen or living room and semi-holler, "Parker is here!" We all just kind of went with it, because she's Parker Fucking Posey, But I remember asking the guy who brought me as a guest what the fuck was going on with her. Her dog (who has since passed away) also made x3 other dogs in the house deathly ill. All that to say, she did do a cucumber eye mask with me by the fireplace one night. (Hi, Parker, if you're reading this!)

Parker is okay, but I can't believe she managed to lose Busy Bee. If she hadn't, Beatrice would have taken Best in Show, because those other dogs were fat-ass losers. Freaks!

Hmmm. I've always thought she was overrated.

by Anonymousreply 58August 16, 2021 5:18 PM

In her book and stuff she often seems to be short of money. Maybe the type of films she makes don't pay well. She lives in what seems to be a very ordinary one bedroom apt in the West Village. I may be way off target but this is what I gather.

by Anonymousreply 59August 16, 2021 5:21 PM

Did Parkey ever scissor with Chloë Sevigny? Or, did they avoid each other at events?

Parker and Chloe were friends and used to live in the same apartment building. I don’t know if they still are friends.

by Anonymousreply 61August 16, 2021 6:07 PM

Also, for the person upthread who surmised she has trouble with money—indie films really, really don’t pay much. Chloe has been in the same boat for most of her career, but like Parker she’s occasionally been in larger, mainstream productions. Unlike Parker, Chloe has consistently done modeling and gotten endorsement deals (I don’t know if ‘endorsement’ is the word for it) throughout her career, which have paid way, way more than the independent film work she’s done.

She was great in Personal Velocity, Clockwatchers, and the House of Yes. She’s sort of the same in her movies—snarky, witty/banter-y and very cynical. But it fits to have a character like that in many movies, although usually as an ensemble or minor character.

R54 here again...I had the chance to smoke some weed with Parker and Rory Culkin after their Sundance film premiere. Rory was definitely over the whole publicity charade (and he's tiny...smaller than me, and I'm 5'6"). Also, we were barred from taking pics of one with Parker in the chalet; we'd all been warned about this ahead of time by her agent. I did bring a 'Scream 3' DVD for her to sign for a sick friend, and she signed that on the last day whilst also signing Tori Tori Spelling's name simultaneously. She said she'd seen Tori sign her name so many times she knew how to sign it. And she actually did!

R84 here again...sorry for the typos. R85, Parker is probably about 5'5". She was wearing a lot of boots, so it was hard to tell. 'The Young Pope' had just premiered and we all watched that in the chalet while we were snowed in. Someone asked if she'd ever met Jude Law, and she said just in passing, but that she'd love to fuck him. In a living room full of gay men, we all laughed and seconded her.

Posey in Scream 3 is on my personal ballot for supporting actress that year. I'd have to review the contenders, but I might even give her the win.

Her chemistry with Courtney Cox is off-the-charts.

My only gripe is she didn't get a death scene worthy of her performance.
