I hate her with the heat of a thousand suns. That is all.

Oh, Winona. No one MADE you steal stuff!

Ever since the movie, Best in Show, Parker Posey is a goddess

And her appearances on Will & Grace were priceless.

Funny, funny, quirky, wonderful actress.

She is rabidly homophobic. Always has been.

OP, are you nuts? Parker Posey is pure awesomeness. Her perfomance in "Party Girl" is genius.

She is good in Clockwatchers, too.

Clockwatchers, Party Girl and House of Yes.... Mmmmmmmm. I love me some Miss Posey.

She seemed very out of place in Superman. A little too old for the role.

by Anonymousreply 1811/19/2012

She is one of those celebrity anomalies to me: She can either be really, really good or really REALLY bad in a role.

She tends to overact her ass off.

I love Parker. Like Zooey she tried her hand at a sitcom......she failed where The Queen of Cunty Quirkiness has succeeded.According to Ms Michael Musto she's part black. I find that a very interesting factoid about her.

Elizabeth Banks in Our Idiot Brother was channeling Parker in that role. She eerily looked like Parker's clone in that film....

r25: i agree about E Banks in that movie. She's like a blonde more mainstream PP. I do like both actresses. Banks is not as quirky as PP but has an edge that saves her from being another blonde generic girlfriend type actress.

by Anonymousreply 2706/15/2013

I loved her after Party Girl and House of Yes, but found her painfully shrill in Best of Show.

Her "quirk" became more self-conscious after a while and her acting very strident.

Although she seems to have reigned in her bad impulses of late, as I thought she was good (though not great) on Louis C. K.'s show.

by Anonymousreply 2806/15/2013

Was the best part of Scream 3.

by Anonymousreply 2906/15/2013

Well, I guess it's back to the Dairy Queen for me.

'Waiting for Guffman' is one of my all time favorite movies.

by Anonymousreply 3006/15/2013

Clockwatchers--one of my favorite films, with Parker, Toni Colllette and Lisa Kudrow.

by Anonymousreply 3106/15/2013

Hated her as Hal Munson's long-lost daughter on "As the World Turns." I always thought of her as one of those performers that "they" were trying to "make happen." But I really did like her in "Henry Fool" and "Fay Grim." I'm hoping for a third film focusing on Ned Grim.

I laughed long and loud at her "Dorleen the whorleen" character on Will & Grace.

"I was behind her in line at TJ's a few months ago. She couldn't have been nicer when she asked me to hold her spot while she gets something"

A bit OT, though a bit related to this topic, last night I saw a formerly very famous male model at my local Costco, in Queens, no less. It was definitely him and this Costco is very close to Manhattan, I have seen celebs shopping there over the years.

This model was ubiquitous during the era of Christy, Naomi and Linda E, but I couldn't remember his name. He was close friends with three other male models during the time and they also appeared in many print ads and editorials together.

He was with a dark skinned child, but I didn't see a woman around. He seemed as if he was the child's parent, because he was yelling at the kid.

Now it's going to drive me nuts trying to figure out who this guy is.

by Anonymousreply 3706/15/2013

She's much less insufferable than Chloe Sevigny so for that I like her.

by Anonymousreply 3806/15/2013

Cool, u were behind Parker!

As for the model, could it be Marcus Shenkenberg? Michel Bergin? Joel West?

by Anonymousreply 3906/15/2013

R37 Maybe Cameron, he was in the Express Yourself video....

by Anonymousreply 4006/15/2013

No, the model wasn't Marcus, I would have known him immediately, he's very recognizable. This guy had light eyes.

I just looked up famous male models of the 80s-90s and it appears it was Alex Lundqvist in Costco, too funny.

by Anonymousreply 4106/16/2013

btw, the model's wife is Pakistani, that explains the dark skinned child.

Never heard of it before. Just watched the trailer. Looks so funny. Thanks.

I'd like to recommend Personal Velocity. Terrible title...but good film & PP was great in it.

She was a black hole in Superman Returns.

She was so dead pan in Adam and Steve, I mean world class, state of the art snark and shade. My favorite, "ugh, there's nothing worse than a preachers kid." Cute, stupid movie made for about $49.99. That huge homo from Caroline in the City starred. I loved it, the leads entire relationship was built upon shitting your pants.

R50: Are you suggesting that Parker Posey and Cate Blanchett are remotely in the same league when it comes to dramatic acting?

Because that is rather laughable.

by Anonymousreply 5106/16/2013

Not R50, here, but the difference is that Parker Posey would have made Katherine Hepburn INTENTIONALLY funny in THE AVIATOR.

by Anonymousreply 5206/16/2013

Parker Posey can do drama dumbass. Most comedians can in such a wonderful way. She would have killed as Hepburn. I can't stand Blanchett.

by Anonymousreply 5306/16/2013

I thought the same thing about Posey as Hepburn. But then, the Scorcese of the 2000's is not the Scorcese of the '80's. I think PP is too subversive or something for what was ultimately a dull and by-the-books biopic?

r51: With Parker Posey, there's a physical resemblance to Katharine Hepburn, and she has the same type of brittle, dry, urban sophistication that Hepburn had.

by Anonymousreply 5806/16/2013

I think she has the most amazing range, she can play anything and does it with amazing talent. I love her performances. I don't know what she is like in real life, and usually don't care unless someone takes a political position I really find hateful (like homophobic, anti-semetic, sexists etc.) then I will boycott, however I find it hard to believe she is homophobic - any substantial evidence?

by Anonymousreply 6106/16/2013

I've told you all this before, but she goes to my vet in WeHo. For some strange reason, both in LA and in NYC, she and I always wind up at the same places at the same time, be it bars, readings, restaurants, clubs, etc. We've run into each other many times over the years, more times than I've probably run into most people I actually know, but have never spoken. So, I'm sitting in the waiting room waiting (of course) for the staff to pull my bill up so I can pay and get out of there when Parker comes out of the office area with her medium sized dog in a very small handbag, makes eye contact with me and sits down right next to me despite there being about 12 other open seats and only one or two other people in the waiting room. I'm assuming somewhere during her walk over to me she realized we didn't actually know each other and when she sat down, she pulled out her phone and spent the next ten minutes (until I was finally called up to the desk) pretending to talk on her phone. I know she was pretending because we were sitting shoulder to shoulder and I have bat ears (hence, the reason I was at the vet) and there was no fucking sound whatsoever coming out of her phone and she carried on this entirely imaginary conversation with herself.

She was great in a weird way in her role in DL's favorite Showtime series "The Big C."

She is the ultimate cougar.

by Anonymousreply 6706/16/2013

I also loved her in Waiting For Guffman. Her audition song "Teacher's Pet" is hilarious but there's also an alternate audition scene on the DVD where she shows amazing comic timing doing a soap opera scene (where she actually did start out BTW.) She knew exactly how long to hold the moments for maximum effect. Apparently the scene wasn't scripted either. She just improvised the whole thing. Really funny stuff.

by Anonymousreply 6806/16/2013

r64, I think it was a combination of her initially assuming we knew each other because my face was familiar to her and then some weird overpowering fear that I actually would finally speak to her if she wasn't otherwise occupied. Or maybe she goes around doing shit like that every day! All of it combined with the big dog in the tiny purse was just the weirdest trip to the vet ever.

Not long after, a friend made a film with her and confirmed that she was fucking Keanu Reeves at the time.

My favorite of her roles was Jackie O in House of Yes.

by Anonymousreply 6906/17/2013

by Anonymousreply 7111/08/2013

I always liked Parker Posey, then When I saw the 'House of Yes' I started loving her. That role shows her ability to immerse herself in a character.

Also somehow her character in that film makes me want to fuck Josh Hamilton (Edina's Son Serge on AbFab and currently Cordelia's husband on AHS) until he needs an IV to recover from dehydration.

There's something very magical about when they're playing the piano together in that movie.

by Anonymousreply 7311/08/2013

R73, There are several magical moments in that script. It was, of course, a play that was converted to for the screen brilliantly. The dialogue is practically identical to play, which works to make the Pascal's seem nuttier.

Several of my closest friends and I interject quotes from the film into everyday conversation without anyone else getting the joke or realizing that there even is one.

Example, At a restaurant with a very sweet young waitress. Waitress: "I move here from Pennsylvania about two years ago."

Me: "Well that was a step in the right direction, Clearly."

[Waitress walks off] Friends, burst out laughing.

The camp factor is so high in that film that I can't believe that it doesn't have more of a cult following in the gay community.

by Anonymousreply 7511/08/2013

She first came on my radar in "Tales of the City" and I've loved her ever since. The fact that she a as part of the Christopher Guest flicks just solidifies her as a goddess!!!

by Anonymousreply 7611/08/2013

I don't get that encounter at the vet. If you "run" into each other at various times and places, why in the world wouldn't you engage her in a little chat when she sits her ass down right next to you? People are strange.

Did anyone else love her two-episode guest spot in LOUIE? She was one of his neurotic bad dates. I really loved their dreamy, old Hollywood, Vertigo-inspired scene on the rooftop together.

by Anonymousreply 7811/08/2013

She was well cast in her role on "Boston Legal" just before the show went to shit. Never understood why she didn't become a regular on that. She fit that show like a glove.

by Anonymousreply 7911/08/2013

I love everything about her. Unlike a previous poster, I thought she was brilliantly unhinged in Best in Show. I'd like to see her break out of the Christopher Guest genre, though. His later stuff (Home for Purim, A Mighty Wind Blows) hasn't highlight the talents of Catherine O'Hara and PP.

I admire her absence from the limelight.

That is very funny, bravo Parker. Maybe she'll come around again and be interesting as an older woman. I didn't much like her for at least 10, maybe 15 years, cause she never made it big, never made the big money, and it just felt sad and arbitrary. Why those actresses from hit TV shows have multi multi millions. Jennifer Anniston.

by Anonymousreply 10605/16/2015

The way she says the phrase "it's so greeaaatt, I love him/her" in her improv & auditions is iconic. She seems too smart and laidback to worry about celebrity, and that's part of her charm and her cool.
