I love acting, don’t get me wrong, and I’m excited about my new Netflix series, “Grace and Frankie,” with Lily Tomlin. But sometimes, when a long time goes by and I haven’t been speaking out (or acting out) in the presence …

LILY & JANE2 DO SUNDANCE

Posted on February 2, 2015, in My Blog, with 20 Comments

We left Los Angeles Sunday January 25th for Park City and the 15th annual Sundance Film Festival. Hard as it is to believe, Lily had never been and I had never gone not to work but just to see films. It happened like this: Our friend, Pat Mitchell, who among her many titles became Chair of the Board of the …

LIVING IN BOOTSTRAP AMERICA

Posted on January 13, 2015, in My Blog, with 16 Comments

This is a book just out that I just finished reading and needed to blog about. I’ve read many books about people living at or below the poverty line, subsisting on tips or minimum wage when they had a job. I’ve never read one written by such a person and its author, Linda Tirado, is such a person and …

I didn’t expect to love Miami when I went there the beginning of this December to visit my son, Troy, and his wife, Simone. The reason I didn’t blog about this trip sooner is because I’ve had no internet for almost 2 weeks.

I’d been to Miami in 1972 –protesting the Vietnam War at the Republican convention together …

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 …

AND IT’S A WRAP ON “GRACE & FRANKIE”!

Posted on November 26, 2014, in My Blog, with 17 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 …

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 …
