When asked why she was chosen to play the late Katharine Hepburn in the one-woman play “Tea at Five,” actress Kate Mulgrew, of “Star Trek: Voyage” and “Ryan’s Hope” TV fame, didn’t blush.
They’re similar in many ways, Miss Mulgrew told Cox News Service.
“The most startling [similarities] are the parallels in our private lives. They’re very stunning,” she said in an interview in West Palm Beach, Fla.
“She felt the repercussions of her brother’s death early in her life, and I had two sisters die when I was young. That absolutely does shape us. I’d say you make up your mind, when your heart’s broken like that, what you’re going to do with your life…
“If I can put it in a nutshell,” Miss Mulgrew continued, “I would say [Miss Hepburn and I] grew up very fast. We had to. We then replace our missing childhood every night. It saves on therapy bills.”
Don’t call it a chick flick. No, sir…or ma’am.
Julia Roberts and Julia Stiles, who star in the inspirational drama “Mona Lisa Smile,” which opens in the Washington area tomorrow, bristle at the phrase.
“I don’t think we made a chick flick. We just made a movie,” Miss Roberts told Reuters News Agency. In “Smile,” the 36-year-old Oscar winner plays a maverick art history professor on the campus of Wellesley College in the mid-1950s.
Miss Stiles added: “What is a chick flick? It’s weird, because ‘Master and Commander’ is not ‘a guy flick,’ is it?” she said, referring to the Russell Crowe seafaring war picture.
