Looks like Carly Simon in 15 years.

My second favourite Bunny after Bunny Corcoran.

Bye bye Bunny!

That's a man, right?

I'm heartbroken. Seriously.

Wow, so she was in her 50's when she was on Cheers. Unbelievable.

RIP Frances. One of the better actresses on the non woke and broke version of SATC.

It feels like I’ve been watching her in movies and TV shows my entire life.

She's been great in most everything she's been in. I loved her most in "The Mist" and "Raising Cain."

She was just such a wonderful character actress.

She had two Tonys. Will Broadway dim tonight?

For a brief second I cared…then I realized OP wasn’t referring to Mary Steenburgen.

She had a hilarious scene-stealing cameo in Julie & Julia. Think she'd been suffering with Alzheimer's for a number of years now. Glad the suffering is over. She was great.

She certainly deserves it.

It's up to Charlotte St. Cuntbag as to whether anyone gets lights dimmed.

My god - she had 6 kids. Are any of them well known?

Her daughter is a nice girl - actress Amanda Carlin. She told me the thing that surprised her about her mother’s career is that the Sean Connery “Outland” (1981) didn’t bring Sternhagen more movie roles at the time.

She also stole some scenes in Misery as the sheriff's wife. A very small part but she made it memorable

That's sad. I waited on her when I was a server at Applebee's in Times Square 20 years ago. Very nice and polite. She was there with, I guess, her grandkids.

Loved her as Kyra Sedgwick's mother in The Closer.

by Anonymousreply 27November 29, 2023 10:14 PM

Loved her on Cheers, and as Carters nana on ER and as Willie Ray on the Closer.

She was Mrs. Marsh in a series of commercials for Colgate toothpaste in the ‘70’s! With those choppers!

I saw her in the original production of "On Golden Pond." Katharine Hepburn stole her role for the movie version.

r7 that's how people in their 50s used to look.

She was a hoot as Trey's mother Bunny MacDougal on SATC.

Her character in "Raising Cain" wore a dark wig and she made a joke about herself looking like a transvestite.

Loved her when she threw that can of peas at Marcia Gay Harden in The Mist.

and as Willie-Ray
