Mary Louise Parker — Crush of the Day
There is no way in hell that this knockout is 48-years-old. There is just no possible way. Right?You probably recognize her best from her long-running smash hit on Showtime, ‘Weeds,’ where she played Nancy Botwin — a widowed mother who begins selling drugs to finance her life. That was where we first fell in love with her sideways smirk and doe eyes, but Mary Louise is no Hollywood newcomer. She has appeared in such films as ‘RED,’ ‘Friend Green Tomatoes,’ ‘Boys on the Side,’ and HBO’s ‘Angels in America,’ for which she received both a Golden Globe and Emmy award. She was also awarded a Tony Award for Best Actress in 2001, for her role in Broadway’s ‘Proof.’
Parker has dated stars Billy Crudup and Jeffrey Dean Morgan. In September of 2007, she adopted her daughter, Caroline Aberash Parker, from Ethiopia.
Her latest acting project ‘R.I.P.D.’ is currently in filming, a movie based on the comic book series ‘Rest in Peace Department.’ After having to say a tearful goodbye to Nancy Botwin, we’re relieved to know that there’s more Mary Louise to come.
