Actress Jacki Weaver's acting career is in exceptional form as she will be on the big screen in late July in a feature role in the movie "Magic in the Moonlight" . This is no 'average' movie as it is is a project of one of the most esteemed and respected film directors in Hollywood, Woody Allen.
In what is probably one of the great testaments to her acting ability, she was selected for this project by Woody Allen, a film director superstar in the United States and has several other projects in stages of pre or post-production at an age (66) of which many actors and actresses complain about the dearth of quality roles offered to them.
The supremely talented actress has been in demand since her 2010 performance in the film "Animal Kingdom" in which she was the leading lady star as the leader of a crime family in Australia.
Recently she disclosed in an interview that since her recent return to the limelight which has resulted in her receiving two Oscar Award nominations for Best Supporting Actress she considered having cosmetic surgery to rid her face of 'age lines' but her agent thankfully banned her from doing so. Entertainment insiders following her ascent in Hollywood the past several years believe that part of her success is her ability to portray a 'mature, vibrant attractive woman with the many dimensions that come with maturity. The removal of these 'age' lines would have likely impacted how she is viewed on film by many of her fans not to mention the filmmakers who are clamoring for her to be part of their film projects.
When Woody Allen selects you to be part of one of his films you know you are doing something not just correct but in a fantastic manner. Jacki Weaver's recent acting success sends a message that acting talent is the most important attribute to having a long career as an actor in the film and television industry because despite being a woman of significant beauty, it if the fact that few people can connect with an audience and show multiple dimensions of a character like she can that have made her a superstar leading lady.
