(On her nude scenes in The Thomas Crown Affair)
"It never really dawned on me that, gee, I'm 45 and I'm taking off my clothes. For me it was a matter of living inside the character."-Rene Russo
Favorite Film: Lethal Weapon 3
Best Performance: The Thomas Crown Affair
Status: Well, I guess Rene is what you'd call a C-actress. Model turned actress, she never really had a break-through performance and with very few exceptions, she hasn't done any notable characters. I'm sure many have never heard of her. After an absence since 2005, Russo had a small role in "Thor" as Frigga.
Future Projects: She's rumored to play a part in upcoming comedy "Frank and Cindy". That's it.
Considering her status and existing filmography, I bet you're wondering why Rene? It's in the smile I tell you! Haha. In all sincerity, I just love the way she has about her. The first time I ever saw her, in a very silly film with Dennis Quaid, I was just drawn to her energy and charisma. Though she has done few significant movies, I find her acting refreshing and I love seeing her on-screen. Not to mention she looks amazing. See that picture on top of this post? That's a 56 year old woman right there! With the few movies she's done, she has still shown a range. Funny, sincere, sexy. Whenever I watch a movie of hers, I instantly feel good. Seeing as Superhero movies are not my thing, I went to "Thor" just for her (she had only 3 scenes and very little dialogue, but still). So in conclusion, it's not about what films she has done, it's about how she does them.
