Debra Winger talks about the Us 'facelift epidemic'

9 June 2014 2:19 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Accepting a lifetime achievement award in Transilvania, Winger talks about her career, fracking and film vs digital.

The Academy Award nominated American actress and producer Debra Winger recieved the Career Achievement Award at the 13th Transilvania International Film Festival in Cluj-Napoca this weekend. But she’s got mixed feelings about such honours.

“First of all it’s sort of been a superstition not to ever accept any award so I believe this one’s the first I’ve accepted. And I’ll probably pretend that I didn’t,” she said, adding that she wanted to come to Romania, to Cluj and to this festival and couldn’t avoid to accept how they wanted to invite her. “It’s just a heavy object, it will hold my door open,” she joked. In recognition of the award, the festival has screened two of her most famous films: An Officer and a Gentleman (for which she was Oscar nominated) and The Sheltering Sky »
