Aging was never a problem for some of Hollywood’s veteran actresses, since they managed to experience it gracefully. So, in honor of their recent Oscar showcase, I still think we can tap these fine ladies…
Sure, we tuned in to the 86th Academy Awards to see if our bets got even as little as a nod, but the pretty ladies’ appearances are just as luring! Check out our 5 stunning picks below:
Can an Oscar win for “Best Supporting Actor” in the hit movie The Fighter help fix Christian Bale’s family? His mom sure hopes so.
Jenny Bale and her 37-year-old son haven’t spoken to one another since he broke down in a hotel suite back in July 2008, attacking his mom and his sister Sharon right before the London premiere of The Dark Night.
Now Jenny says of his win:
“I hope this Oscar can bring us together. The family are so pleased for him. This Oscar is well deserved. I saw other celebrities there with their mothers and got upset,” adding “I would have loved to have been there by his side. I’d love for Christian to walk through the door right now and. I’d give him a big hug and a kiss and we could forget about the last three years. I don’t know why he’s doing this.”
Natalie Portman trained in the art of Ballet for a year before taking on her role in David Aronofsky’s critically lauded film Black Swan and her hard work paid off with Portman taking home her first Academy Award at Sunday nights awards ceremony.
In the movie Portman played troubled ballerina Nina Sayers and during her speech she had this to say:
“I truly, sincerely, wish the prize was to get to work with my fellow nominees. I’m so in awe of all of you.”
As Oscars night 2011 drew to a close a bit of controversy arose after it was pointed out that three well known Hollywood talents were left off the shows “In Memoriam” montag which highlights top Hollywood mainstays who passed since the last Academy Awards show.
Last year Farrah Fawcett was left off the montage and this year Corey Haim, who died of an accidental drug overdose on March 10, 2010 was not seen, just as he was left off the SAG Awards’ own In Memoriam.
Also missing was Peter Graves who died of a heart attack just four days after Haims and All In The Family’s Betty Garrett who passed earlier this month on February 12, 2011.
