: To Marcia and others:
: Madeleine Stowe is not a "star" , have never been will never be. That has nothing to do with talent but everything to do with how Stowe has always approach her career. I have always believe that not only is she one of the best actresses out there but very much under-appreciated by the business.
I have no problem in saying that Madeleine Stowe is a great actress. LOTM proves that
: As to her marriage to Brian Benben, I think there is something to be said about an actress who is in a relationship with the same man for 18 years. Married for around 13 of those 18 years.That's pretty rare for someone in that business
True, good point!
:Cut her some slack.
Well, ambitious or not, and whatever her priorities may be (and I CREDIT her for putting family first!), my personal opinion is that she chooses, for the most part, very medicocre (or worse) roles. If acting is her thing, than her talent demands better. It would appear that it would take a GREAT director (ala Michael Mann) to coax the best from her!
