Oscar Loves Theater Stage Movies

 

"My favorite movie about the theater is ALL ABOUT EVE, but then again that movie is my favorite movie about everything about movies and love and lust and life itself." - Jay

"TOPSY-TURVY perfectly captures the feeling of imminent failure that you get when you're in rehearsals." - Peggy

Tilda, Candied

First the prize jewel in gay activist's Derek Jarman's filmography. Then critical adulation and fame with Orlando "same person...different sex". On to Female Perversions and into The Deep End. Finally and impossibly, sorcerous big box office, red carpet goddess, unashamed polyamory, and Oscar-winning internationally adored actress. All this and she's never lost a single wisp of that original avant garde spirit.

Queen Tilda.

Now, a covergirl for the "first transversal style magazine"! Fifty-one years fabulous and still going impossibly strong. Long may this queer icon reign.

heart-stoppingly exciting photos by Xevi Muntané after the jump...

I'll give you a few moments to regain consciousness.

Tilda's 51?!

NO SHE'S NOT.

*looks on Wikipedia*

Damn, girl.

May 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterDerreck

Age does not exist for this goddess. I need her secret.

May 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterPaolo

Oh wow, disco queen showdown against Alison Goldfrapp!

May 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSanty.C

Tilda is giving and I am receiving! Yes mama werk!

May 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterGlitterati

Ebert refers to her as Saint Tilda.

I've been considering getting a tattoo of just that.

May 20, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterBeau

She and Streep are wonders... love to see them work together

My favorite Tilda movie is still The Deep End

May 20, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterrick

They had scenes together in Adaptation.

@4rtful

Thanks for the info... I really did not remember Swinton on that movie.

May 20, 2012 | Unregistered Commenterrick

I adore Tilda! Recently caught up with Newsweek's Oscar Roundtable 2012 on youtube.

Loved her comments (when George Clooney actually let someone else speak!). Impatiently waiting to see her in Moonrise Kingdom (probably a small part), and in a new thriller with Chris Evans and Jamie Bell.

May 23, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterPam

Oh. My. Lord. Heartstopping photos! How, how, how does she do it?!

May 23, 2012 | Unregistered CommenterSally

I'm still reeling from how spectacular these are. Couple this with that hilarious @NotTildaSwinton twitter account, and it's been a Tilda-riffic week, which is never a bad thing.
