Guy Maddin on Isabella Rossellini (born June 18, 1952)
Just meeting her, I learned how many things she can be simultaneously - a wide-eyed little girl with daddy issues and a well-traveled super-sophisticate, and then she’s unbelievably raunchy at times. I think it comes down to her belief that it’s important for her to be as honest as she can be. She thinks she’s being honest, I’ll put it that way. It’s almost a literary approach to pursuing the truth, and that involves being funny and sexy and clinical. She’d fit right into a men’s locker room. There’s something very charming about that.
