Winning the genetic lottery


It could have been worse. Polley could have gotten her father's looks and mother's talent. In which case ... no career!

I realize ur half joking, but I thought she and her father had the exact same eyes. I knew what was coming as soon as they showed them together at the coffee shop.

reply

Oh yeah. She does look like her mother but dang does she have Gulkin's facial features.

reply

Huh, that's strange you'd say that, because when they were both younger, I thought her father was better looking. And her mother must have been talented--after all, Canadian stars like the guys from Kids in the Hall went to her funeral.

Did you know her sister is a doctor? Michael Polley is sort of portrayed as a Laz-about in the film but if his daughters turned into a doctor, Oscar-nominated filmmaker, and successful actor respectively he must have done something right. Also her brother was casting director on 'American Psycho 2'. Mila Kunis and William Shatner. American Psycho. Straight to heaven for that one.

reply

Wow, impressive.

I have only seen the first American Psycho; was always leery of the sequel.
