Maureen Stapleton

Maureen Stapleton passed away today at the age of 80.

There is this great story about her. She had just won the Academy Award for REDS in 1981.

Now Maureen was a bit of a battle AXE and a quality drinker. She wins the award, Jack Lemmon hands it to her and the walk backstage to the pressroom.

Jacks holds her by the arm and says "So how does it feel to be the best supporting actress there ever was?"

Maureen spits out "I'd rather be remembered as the greatest LAY there ever was"

to a loaded press room.

Who never said a goddamn word. And good for them.

At least she had the balls to admit what most of us think from time to time-- but dare not speak.
