WEHT Famke Janssen

She was a terrible actress who most felt was miscast as Jean Grey.

Maybe she’s a cunt? I dunno. She wasn’t a great actress. It was mostly her character that worked so well in Nip/Tuck. Slim pickings for actresses over 40 plus a lack of natural talent. Usually Ryan Murphy reuses the same stars and aside from a pilot, Famke never popped up again in any of his other stuff.

She was great in all those genre movies in the late 90s and early 00s, but I didn't really expect staying power given how Hollywood treats actresses of her age and perceived talent level. She always did come across quite intelligently in interviews, I know she speaks a lot of languages too. I'm pretty sure the only actress from that era of genre films still getting regular work is Milla Jovovich, who coincidentally played the lead in Janssen's (critically panned) directorial debut.

Famke did a good job balancing the action/sci fi/horror roles with more adult indie films like Made, Love & Sex, The Wackness, Woody Allen's Celebrity, etc. My favourite performance from her is in Eulogy (2004), where she plays a lesbian in a relationship with Kelly Preston's character, who make Preston's family (Piper Laurie, Debra Winger, Rip Torn, Zooey Deschanel, Hank Azaria, Ray Romano, and the late Glenn Headly) uncomfortable.

I’ve never heard of that movie before but it has a terrific cast. Is it worth a rental?

I actually really liked her as Jean Grey. It's a shame those movies were crap.

Wrecked her face with horrible plastic surgery.

R8 I would give it ago. It hits a lot of those 'eccentric family going back to their childhood home for a reunion/funeral' tropes but the cast are really funny in it (great chemistry) and it has some genuine dramatic moments too.

She's pushing 60, so it's not really surprising that the roles have started drying up. Considering she's a former Bond Girl and top model who's foreign, 6 feet tall, has an odd name, and had her breakout role after 30, I'd say she had a pretty good run: Bond, X-men movies, Taken trilogy, lots of other studio films, worked with Altman/Woody Allen, and headlined a couple tv shows.

She does have Knights of the Zodiac coming out in 2023, which is a mid-budget film that should make it to theaters. If she's really lucky, that could turn into another franchise (but definitely a long shot).

She was in Hemlock Grove a few years ago on Netflix. She played Bill Skarsgard's bitch of a mother.

Isn’t she a tranny with a shallow vagina? I remember some virgin actor fucked her and thought it was a real vagina. But then another more experienced actor fucked her and knew right away.

Why was she cast in X-Men with a Cyclops that’s 10 years younger than her? It was such an odd pairing.

R13, I loved when Roman and Peter finally hooked up during a threesome and then were weird about it the next morning. Great catharsis.

Famke Is no tranny

There was some bizarre incident with her involving a doll a few years back.

R2 Yikes

R18, did she go on vacation, steal said doll from a young family, and get stabbed with a hat pin? I think I read about that.

I haven’t seen everything she’s done, but the only performance of hers I remember enjoying was from the Star Trek: TNG episode “The Perfect Mate.”

Wasn't she on "How To Get Away With Murder" in its not so distant final season?

I haven't seen "Eulogy" yet, R8, but I see it's available On Demand.

Well I’m stunned always thought this actor was trans. Obviously I’m not interested enough to look it up.

by Anonymousreply 23January 13, 2022 9:42 PM

She played a trans on Nip/Tuck.

Speaking of which, I find it ironic that after being on Nip/Tuck, she should have such horrible plastic surgery!
