"It’s incredible — I’m 60, and I’m playing the romantic lead in romantic comedies! Bette Davis is rolling over in her grave. She was 42 when she did All About Eve, and she was 54 when she did What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?." - Meryl Streep in Vanity Fair (via)
Oh just you wait, Meryl. Bette's in a dark corner of heaven waiting for you with a sack and a shiv with your name on it. You'd better regain your River Wild toughness, lady, before you shuffle off. No more flouncing around in ABBA-ready overalls for you! I say you use your mature-lady prestige and relaunch the Hag Horror genre for another generation. Fuck Nancy Meyers! Slap on the grease-paint and get wacky!
