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....

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.

"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.

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.

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 Anonymous||reply 68||06/16/2013|
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.

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."
