    There was not enough Aunt May in Spider Man Homecoming. There always needs to be more Marisa Tomei. And I don’t get the age thing on this. Spider Man is a kid. Marisa is the right age to be the aunt or mom of a teen. A 70 year old woman would be more grandmother than aunt. And women in their 50s can and do look great.

      I love Marisa Tomei, and I respect the hell out of her for how she’s aging. She’s having work done but in a way to not pretend she’s 20. She was amazing in Cyrus, partially because she wasn’t afraid of a few wrinkles and actually emoting on screen. She’s getting more beautiful as she ages, and I wish Hollywood would follow her example.

      Also, I’m still hoping for a reunion of her and RDJ in a romcom. Only You is one of my favorite romcoms, and I would love to see them back together in a non-superhero universe.

        She looks wonderful. She always seems as if she is actually having a life and her face reflects that, in the best way.

      • Fleur says:

        I love her too , ie I basically want to be her when I grow up (I’m in my early thirties but I’m already worried about getting older. Thanks, pop culture). She and Salma Hayek make me less afraid of growing older. I hope the site posts more stories of women that age so we can all see life doesn’t stop at 40.

      “There always needs to be more Marisa Tomei.”

      Couldn’t agree more, Lightpurple! She is all-round fabulous.

    • Jerusha says:

      Marisa looks great. Always liked her.

    • Cintra.C says:

      Marisa looks fantastic, and I love that dress.

    My province is burning. There have been 135 new forest fires since Friday, over 185 all together. They are evacuating towns all through the interior, over 20 so far. Thousands are out of or have lost their homes. Highways are closed, firefighters have come from other provinces, they are debating bringing in armed forces to help, and the BC govt. has declared a state of emergency. They have also given $100 million to help fight the fires. They expect the extreme heat (33-36C) to last another week or two. I packed totes this morning with blankets and pillows, 3 changes of clothing, ID, I have 8 jugs of water, pre-packaged food, money and a tote with cat food, dishes, blankets, kitty litter pan, (that should be fun in a truck) filled my truck and a jerry can with gas, and I don’t know what else to do.
    The sun is orange when you can see it, and the whole outdoors smells like a giant campfire. I quit smoking over 3 years ago, and I was coughing yesterday and today for the first time since. I can’t imagine what people with asthma are going through.
    I have a wild cat that I will never get in my truck, especially with mine in there, in cages. I’ve put tubs of water under the deck and covered in the back yard for her with food, but I’m afraid they will still get ash covered if we have to flee. I’m so worried about her.

    • Jerusha says:

      Oh no! That’s very frightening. I hope you and your animals and your wild cat and your home will be okay. Thinking of you and hoping for the best.

    • minx says:

      LadyD, take care! Sorry to hear this.

    • Cran says:

      Under what must be frightening conditions it sounds as if you have prepared to the best of your ability. Please give yourself enough time to evacuate safely. Best of everything for you and your family and friends. Be well.

    • Imqrious2 says:

      Wishing you safety and all the best, Lady D ❤️

    • detritus says:

      Good luck Lady D, you’ve done an awesome job in very trying circumstances. You’ve done your best, and that is all anyone can do. My thoughts are with you and your kitties.

    • CynicalAnn says:

      Thinking good thoughts for you and your cats!

    • Cintra.C says:

      Best wishes to you, LadyD. I hope you and the animals get through this okay.

    • Lady D says:

      Thank you, it’s very kind of all of you. This is scary stuff. I heard a lady on the news say the police knocked on her door and told her she had 2 minutes to get out. l spent most of the day helping a friend move farm animals to a SPCA safe site. I stayed right out of the way while they loaded the horses. I know very little about them and they were freaking, they did not want to get in their trailers.
      We are over 240 forest fires now, with over 14,000 out of their homes.
      I read a tweet or Facebook post yesterday from someone who made it through the massive Fort McMurray fire last year, and it was their advice/list that helped me pack today. I didn’t know where to start and I wish I could thank that person.
      My town is now out of gas. That’s a first. It’s hard to believe that 3 weeks ago they were looking for volunteers to fill sandbags because we were all in danger of flooding. Climate change? What climate change?

    • crazydaisy says:

      Be safe. Praying for you, Lady D, and everyone in that fire’s path. <3

    i work at a company that makes STD tests and i hate to tell you that antibiotic resistant super gonorrhea has been around for several years and is just becoming more and more prevalent. soapbox moment: antibiotics are good and miraculous BUT if you have a choice do not take a broad spectrum antibiotic if you can take one that is more targeted/specific to the bacteria you need to fight. it doesn’t hurt to ask your doctor!

    • LA Elle says:

      That there’s been an uptick in HIV transmission because people are thinking they can take a drug is awful, not least because it opens them up to other STDs.

      It’s exactly because antibiotics are so miraculous that I only take them when absolutely necessary. I have friends and family members who don’t seem to get the purpose of antibiotics and demand them for the slightest illness (what amazes me is often doctors will prescribe even for a cold). I would like antibiotics to continue to be effective and overuse / misuse of them is bad for everyone.

    If a producer asked me the question he posed to Zoe Kazan I probably would have responded ‘I bite.’

  6. who will be lisa Rinna friend?

    Remember when George Costanza had a crush on Marisa Tomei? She’s even more beautiful now! And seems like an awesome person, too. Love her.
