Isabella Rosellini

Yes, nepo baby, but i find her increasingly welll meaning, a cultivated,, healthy presence. She also looks like her mother, whom i loved.

What says you, datalounge.

You may know more of what we say if you spelled her last name correctly and conducted a search, mein Fuhrer.

I will always have a soft spot for her, because of this movie/role.

I quote her all the time.

She is currently appearing in HBO's fictional Julia, looking very old

She looks like an extremely beautiful woman in her 70s. I love her style-- not just in clothes, but her way of living life. Very holistic and healthy, with curiosity and humor.

Was rewatching the version of Gaslight with IB, throughout it was striking how identical their voices are. Isabella has a unique look, she was helped by her lineage, but she's not a Dakota Johnson.

Let’s face it, Nepo baby isn’t a European thing. At least not in the 20th century. Nepo babies in Hollywood are usually talentless. Even Anjelica Huston was raised in Ireland. Isabella’s mother was shunned and deemed a disgrace by the U.S. government and society. She certainly didn’t help Isabella.

She has the same voice indeed, r5.

R6, i completely disagree. Nepotism does not have geographical origins, it applies everywhere. Much as i like Isabella, of course she benefited from being the daughter of Bergman and Rosellini, it is crazy to argue otherwise. And When she started her career her mother’s momentary disgrace was long in the past.

She has a very charming way about her. I loved her starred in the funny and very underrated movie ‘Cousins’.

Nepo babies are usually accepted if they are smart and photogenic and talented

If you're smart, photogenic, and talented, who needs famous parents? What an asinine thing to say.

She gets a fast pass, for many reasons.

R10 boy are you an ignorant cunt. Plenty of smart photogenic and talented people get passed up for a myriad of reasons. Nepotism gives a much needed leg up.

I saw her with Gary Oldman 30 years ago in a lobby of a Russian hotel. She was incandescent. She impresses me as someone who is relieved that men are finally leaving her alone and she seems to love showing her age. Good for her.

She gets that from her mother.

R12 Passed up for what? Their dream career as host of Entertainment Tonight? Boo hoo. The post at R9 uses the vague term "accepted," which implies it takes famous parents to get anywhere at all. No shit nepo babies have an unfair advantage when trying to advance in whatever profession their parents succeeded, but to say a "smart and photogenic and talented" person is doomed to failure in life is indeed asinine. Becoming a world famous movie star/pop star/model/influencer is not the only definition of success. You need to grow up and calm down. Rage is an extremely unattractive and embarrassing personality trait.

All this to say: Isabella was, and is "smart and photogenic and talented" enough to be a success on her own. Did the connection to her famous parents help? Of course it did, but you don't see Isotta Rossellini in Vogue advertising Lancome.

Her Insta posts give me life.

When I was a cater waiter I was working a very casual dinner downtown where I think most of the guests thought I was the host's friend "just helping out", and Isabella was a guest. She had one of the most charming and sweet personalities of anyone I'd ever met. She was a really warm, friendly person.

Second place is Antonio Banderas (different dinner), who knowing full well I was the hired waiter gave me a big hug goodbye and a hearty thank you when I helped him on with his coat after serving dinner.

R15 condescension, prissiness and effeminacy, which you exude, are also unattractive and embarrassing traits. Although I'm sure you're already aware of your flaws, being a fussy aging bottom.
