She looks good. I don't know if she had plastic surgery but she didn't go overboard.

I know she can be problematic, but sweet Jesus, do I love her.

Probably my gayest trait.

Well, that and liking dick.

Yeah, I fell in love with her way before I had any inkling I was gay. Guess that should have been a clue.

By the time she appeared in The First Wives Club she was already looking MATRONLY.

Still waiting for Ruthless People 2, Outrageous Fortune 2, First Wives Club 2, and a second season of Bette!

I do love Bette. She's had such a long and varied career, and been so committed and artistically successful in those variations, it really does seem as though it takes separate people to come together to make up the entirety of who she is. It's unbelievable that one woman could so successfully inhabit such a wide range of personas: glitz and glam stage diva, torch singing chanteuse, gritty rocker, movie star, philanthropist. Interesting to think of how she can be identified so totally as one or the other, and the range of fans she's able to pick up along the way.

I love this performance of Stay With Me from 2015. She sounds great and is so effective emotionally. Wish she got one or two more legitimate opportunities to showcase her dramatic acting chops when she was in her prime.

I remember when she used to come on Merv Griffin as a parody of a 1930s Hollywood glamor puss. She was hilarious

by Anonymousreply 34December 2, 2023 9:34 AM

Hasn’t she made some controversial statements about the gay community in the past?

by Anonymousreply 35December 2, 2023 2:35 PM

Yes, she said "The fags love me!"

by Anonymousreply 36December 2, 2023 2:41 PM

R35 She famously told Larry King she wasn't for marriage equality. I remember blind items that had Bette hitting on her female nannies & the agency said none would work for her over it after word got out. She has also said some anti-trans things in the past decade so I think she might be a closeted repub (in more ways than one).

JESUS, R2. Besides a facelift, younger Bette had her nose straightened and her teeth fixed. I agree she looks good for her age (what we can see of it, surely she looks different up close without retouching), but plastic surgery is obvious.

r39 Sort of, she did She said "it's a dilemma" and she had mixed feelings about gay marriage. She DID say they should have the same civil rights as everyone else. She certainly questioned gay men's ability for gay men to commit to traditional marriage.
