In the 11.10 issue of People, Oliver Jones asks I’ve Loved You So Long star and likely Oscar nominee Kristin Scott Thomas about her favorite review so far. “Someone compared my performance to Steve McQueen,” she answers. “That’s the ultimate compliment to me — to be compared to a man!”
That “someone” would be me. The McQueen comparison is on the mp3 in this KST interview piece (“Doesn’t Miss a Trick”) that I ran on 10.14. What I actually said is that her ILYSL acting reminds me of McQueen’s in The Sand Pebbles — masterfully low-key, and his best ever according to common consensus. I also referenced Al Pacino’s performance in The Godfather, Part II.
