Lip Service to Laura Dern



Laura Dern's face is one of the most beautiful, uniquely expressive in the business. Does anyone - can anyone - do a crying scene quite like her? I mean besides Gumby or Mr. Bill. Perhaps Wallace if he ever lost Gromit...


The only explanation really is that Laura Dern is molded of clay. When things in her films inevitably take a downward turn, so does Laura'a mouth -- like a lipstick rubber band ready to snap. Laura Dern's always been an actress capable of turning my frown upside down. Now if only she could do the same for herself and not lose an eye.

Ah much love to Ms. Dern...I think I love her most in Novocaine, followed by Blue Velvet and then Inland Empire...she goes from sublime beauty, and then those lips get to twistin' and facha brute

Oh don't make up stories, you named your pet Lula so you could scream like Diane Ladd in "Wild at Heart"! ;)

Well crazy Diane Ladd should inspire everyone, especially with her liberal use of lipstick.

Great post, her face is so amazing... I love her entrance in "Recount", even when she's grinning her face is twisting downwards.

She is such a stunning, unique actress, and "Inland Empire" is truly amazing.
