IT’S MY BIRTHDAY

My Birthday Dinner With Richard, brother Peter and his wife, Parky

Okay, I turned 77 today. My Winter Solstice birthday. A perfect day: I worked out for an hour, climbed a mountain, meditated for an hour, took a hot bath/jacuzzi with Epsom Salts and another salt called “Pink Love,” and I poured some Baby Oil into it cause the walk was windy and my skin felt dry.…

AND IT’S A WRAP ON “GRACE & FRANKIE”!

Posted on November 26, 2014, in My Blog, with 16 Comments

We finished shooting at 2am last Saturday morning. Whew! It’s very nice to be able to sleep in and not have to learn pages of dialogue every day. It’s also bittersweet because I already miss my “Grace & Frankie” family, especially Lily. Towards the end of shooting on Saturday–like at midnight–she and I got onto a laughing jag that we couldn’t stop.…

FINAL SEASON OF NEWSROOM, GRACE & FRANKIE, & HALLOWEEN

Posted on November 6, 2014, in My Blog, with 10 Comments

This Sunday on HBO at 9pm, the final season of The Newsroom begins. There are only 6 episodes this season and I hope you watch them because Aaron Sorkin has outdone himself with the finale he has created. All the actors (and HBO execs) were on pins and needles wondering what he would come up with . . . especially given that he ended Season 2 with what could have been interpreted as a finale.…

OPPOSITES A FRACK!

Posted on October 31, 2014, in My Blog, with 15 Comments

Happy Halloween! I’ve been working a lot which is great, and I will fill you in via my upcoming blogs, but today wanted to let you know that this coming Sunday, Nov 2nd, I will be on The Simpsons! Last January I was invited to be the voice of Democratic Assemblywoman, Maxine Lombard who is secretly Mr. Burns’ girlfriend, a most unlikely pairing as you’ll see when you watch, and a fact that horrified my grandchildren.…

POWER OF WOMEN

On October 10th I was one of the Lifetime Impact Honorees at the 6th annual Variety’s Power of Women luncheon.

In a partnership with Lifetime, Variety established the award in order to honor Women in Entertainment who have a significant philanthropic impact. Imagine how excited I was to receive this award alongside, Jennifer Lopez, Reese Witherspoon, Viola Davis, and Universal’s Donna Langley.…

HAVING FUN ON “GRACE & FRANKIE”

Posted on September 3, 2014, in My Blog, with 19 Comments

Okay, it’s starting to get real fun on this new Netflix series I’m shooting with Lily Tomlin (Don’t know when it will air–sometime after the thirteen episodes of the first season are finished –and you can start binge watching!). But I want to apologize to my blog readers because I haven’t been writing much. That’s because we shoot such long hours and there isn’t any time and what little leftover time there is, is spent (by me, at least) watching the dailies which takes hours but which is critical for me–that’s how I learn what works, what doesn’t, what I need to do more of or less of and that’s where I get a true sense of what the director is going for.…

STARTING THE NEW SERIES, “GRACE & FRANKIE,” WITH LILY TOMLIN, MARTIN SHEEN & SAM WATERSTON

Posted on August 17, 2014, in My Blog, with 29 Comments

I was very excited when Martin Sheen was cast as my husband and Sam Waterston as Lily’s. It feels good to have my pal from “The Newsroom” with us on this new adventure. Most of my Newsroom scenes were with him and I grew to care for him a lot. I’ve never worked with Martin before but we’ve met on several occasions and we share values and concerns…actually, all four of us do.…
