This appreciation by Jodie is from the Time 100:
“…I remember going to the cutting rooms of Winter’s Bone. I thought, Sure, this girl can act. But, man, this girl can also just be. All of those painful secrets in her face, the feeling that there’s some terrible past that’s left impossibly angled bone and weariness in its wake.”
But JLa is not just about pain and sadness, says Jodie.
“Jen’s got it together,” she adds. “A hoot. A gem. A gem with a killer stare.”
What a lovely benediction from a two-time Oscar winner to a one-time Oscar winner. Maybe I’ll write something similar about whoever the new me is.
