That’s Frances McDormand. That’s wine in her tumbler. That’s a toilet she’s sitting on. That’s a pantsuit she is wearing. While sitting on a toilet. Drinking a glass of wine. In heels.
Apropos of that picture, here’s a quote from McDormand from two weeks ago, after the Emmy ceremony, via NPR:
One of the reasons that I am doing press again after 10 years absence is because I feel like I need to represent publicly what I’ve chosen to represent privately, which is a woman who is proud and more powerful than I was when I was younger. And I think that I carry that pride and power on my face and in my body. And I want to be a role model. I want to be an elder. I want to be an eldress.
She can be my role model. This woman can be my fucking eldress any day.
