Exclusive: Zoe Kazan Moves Beyond Demure

10 November 2016 11:30 AM, PST | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

It’s hard to believe Zoe Kazan, who gained notoriety for the 2012 fantastical love story Ruby Sparks and earned an Emmy nomination for HBO’s Olive Kitteridge, is already experiencing something of a creative drought in her career. 

As Kazan explains, it’s the sad reality that actresses over 30 face in Hollywood. “I had so many more auditions at 23 than I do at 33,” she tells Et by phone. “We, in our culture, tell stories about young girls and tell stories about mothers. There’s a desert in the middle.” 

Even more limiting for the actress, who still passes for 16 in the Off-Broadway play Love, Love, Love, is the fact that she’s admittedly played the same ingénue part onscreen in the string of romantic comedies that followed Ruby Sparks. It’s thanks to “me looking demure and having big eyes and being kind of small and looking young,” she says.

The Lady in the Van; I’ll See You in My Dreams; Mississippi Grind; Fathers and Daughters; Meru and more – review

Maggie Smith shines, Ben Mendelsohn impresses as a poker addict and Spike Lee shows his love of Michael Jackson

“For those who like that sort of thing, that is the sort of thing they like,” Maggie Smith trilled 47 years ago in The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie. It’s become Smith’s defining line, encapsulating her expert hauteur, yes, but also perfectly describing the cosy teatime fare she almost exclusively makes these days. For those who like that sort of thing, The Lady in the Van (Sony, 12) is most pleasing.

A droll adaptation of Alan Bennett’s memoir, the most challenging thing it does is get its leading lady out of her habitual pearls and into the grime-caked rags of Mary Shepherd, the well-bred tramp who camped out on Bennett’s driveway for the better part of 15 years. She’s good value too: drily irascible, as is her wont, but »

‘Downton Abbey’ Star Maggie Smith: ‘Maggie-nificent’ For 60 Years

3 January 2016 12:23 PM, PST | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Downton Abbey,” which begins its final season Sunday, is a PBS series that inspires the kind of fan loyalty usually reserved for “Star Wars” or “Walking Dead.” To some viewers, Maggie Smith was a big discovery as the Dowager Countess Violet Crawley, though they might have known her as Professor Minerva McGonagall in the “Harry Potter” films. Others may think of Smith as the mother of hunk Toby Stephens of the TV series “Black Sails.”

But true Smith fans know that the actress has been shining for nearly 60 years. Smith, who has won two Oscars and is a current Golden Globe contender for the film “The Lady in the Van,” has worked with names ranging from Paul Lynde to Laurence Olivier, also including such talents as Whoopi Goldberg, Cher, Bette Davis, Michael CaineAlan Bennett, Merchant-Ivory, George Cukor and Joseph Mankiewicz.
