Debra Winger

Happy Birthday to

Debra Winger

56 today

Please excuse Debra whilst she just adjusts her glasses. The three time Oscar nominee is known for her reluctance to take roles, however fans of "In Treatment" were privileged to watch her sessions with Gabriel Bryne last year. We're just getting it in the UK this year and I for one will be tuning in.

I might like here presence more than her acting.
to me, she's very beautiful and mysterious.

a very interesting presence in Rachel Getting Married.

Might be interesting to remake "Terms of Endearment" with Winger in the Shirley MacLaine role...and ?? as her daughter....

Alex - She certainly seems to work very hard at remaining a cypher, but that's part of her appeal as an actress I think. There's always something being held back.

Tom - that's an interesting question, I'm not sure she'd be spiky enough for the MacLaine role, but going with it maybe ... um every name I've thought of seems wrong somehow. There just aren't any women out there suited to the role, at least not young enough. Possibly Maggie Gyllenhaal could give it a go - who would you cast?
