While Sissy Spacek made bloody horror movie history (and inspired one of my Halloween costumes – see below) in her role as Carrie White, she’s no typical scream queen.
An incredible talent, she’s shone as a shy mass murderer in Badlands (what would be my first stop in a Spacek movie marathon), sang beautifully as a Coal Miner’s Daughter, and later graced independent dramas In the Bedroom and Affliction with her subtle complexity. All the while maintaining a perfectly normal and non-Hollywood marriage and family life.
She’s always been very earthy and graceful style wise and is a huge argument against the pervasive rite of women cutting their hair off at a certain age.
But what do you think?
