Mary_Steenburgen’s Biography

Steenburgen was born in Arkansas, a city he left to move to New York where he took acting classes in 1972.

In 1978, Jack Nicholson offered her a role in Camino al sur, her debut as a filmmaker, and that earned Mary a Golden Globe nomination, which resulted in her career being shot up. Only two years later her interpretation of Linda Duman in Melvin and Howard, was rewarded with the Oscar for best supporting actress. Mary transmitted an image of some accessibility, both affective and sexual, to the public, giving the type of thirty-something woman wanting to settle her life, but at the same time with a certain capacity to question her own status quo and make decisions about it. In her private life she had just married actor Malcolm McDowell, from whom she was expecting her first daughter: Lily, who was born in 1981.

That year Mary filmed Ragtime, under the command of Miloš Forman, in which she portrayed a placidly accommodated woman who welcomed a pregnant black woman into her house and whose death in charge of the police would cause such a convulsion that she would end up leaving to her husband for a filmmaker.

The following year Mary Steenburgen joined the cast of The Midsummer Night’s Sex Comedy (1982), in which Woody Allen offered her the role of Adrian, a woman who suffers from increasing frigidity because of having hidden her husband an infidelity that caused him strong remorse.

In 1983 his second son Charles was born. In this way in full success, Mary moved away from the big screen to take care of their offspring and which would not return until 1990, year in which he divorced Malcolm. By then I was beginning to give the image of a mature woman who was slightly disenchanted with life, more or less independent. In the process of separation, premiered Sweet home … sometimes!, Where he played a woman to revitalize their marriage was willing to anything … even to have more children and why not devote a fellatio to her husband in a car with somewhat unfortunate consequences …

Very soon after, she began to see her relatively more frequently in films like Back to the Future Part III or Philadelphia, in which she played an implacable lawyer who defended a homophobic law firm that had fired one of her lawyers. for contracting AIDS. The film was her reunion with Jonathan Demme, the same filmmaker who had catapulted her to fame with Melvin and Howard.

In 1993, Lasse Hallström offered one of her best opportunities in “Who does Gilbert Grape love?”, in which she put herself in the shoes of Betty Carver, a woman in her forties who was weary of her mediocre life and her marriage and who maintained a sexual relationship with a young man from a town called Endora, whom he had trapped by making sure he would never leave such a sad place when his hands were tied by a mother whose overweight made her stay anchored in a sofa and a deficient younger brother, Arnie (Leonardo DiCaprio ).

In 1995 he shot three films. In the first, Powder, he defended a boy with powers of a cruel community. In the second, The Grass Harp, she was responsible for giving life to Sister Ida, a preacher who lived with her children and who defended tolerance and freedom in an affluent community. In Nixon, Mary put herself in the shoes of Hannah Nixon, a sick woman whose memory would traumatize her son Richard.

That year Mary married Ted Danson, whom she met in the filming of the television movie The Voyages of Gulliver, in which she played the suffering woman of the aforementioned Gulliver, condemned to take care of the children while her husband was performing fantastic trips.

With that role somehow opened a new stage in the career of the actress who alternated characters similar to the Betty Carver Lasse Hallström tape with that of loving and caring mothers. Among the first highlights Colleen of the house of my life, which repeated the role of divorce whose sexual life depended on a teenager.

Among the latter are three works with their own rights, two of them under the direction of John Sayles, who directed her in The Promised Land-in which she gave some dignity to a woman who falsified local history in favor of a cultural massification and the approval of an urban plan- and Casa de los Baby, where she embodied an ex-alcoholic willing to adopt a child in Latin America, despite a completely corrupt system interested in exploiting the foreigners who came to the place with those intentions and extract all the money possible in luxury hotels and restaurants. Rita Moreno, Marcia Gay Harden, Maggie Gyllenhaal and Daryl Hannah were her co-stars.

The third of these works was carried out on the Joan de Arcadia series, in which he played Helen Gerardi, the wife of the village police chief, art teacher and worried about getting a paralyzed son (Jason) Ritter). The series offered a serene image of an actress who had reached maturity, showing understanding, fighter, patient, willing to give everything for the family.

In 2007, she played the director of a New York radio station in La extraño que hay en ti; and that he became a witness to the transformation of Erica (Jodie Foster) after receiving a beating.

In 2008, she participated in the Christmas comedy Como en casa at no place starring Reese Witherspoon and Vince Vaughn, which was a huge box-office success in the US.

In 2009 he premiered the romantic comedy The Proposal starring Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds, playing the mother of the latter. It premiered on July 9, 2009. That same year, it takes part in The Electric Mist, directed by Bertrand Tavernier.

In 2010 he participated in another romantic comedy Did You Hear About the Morgans? which was starring Hugh Grant and Sarah Jessica Parker. It premiered on January 8, 2010 with not very good reviews. Finally, he managed to raise 74 million dollars worldwide, exceeding his budget (58 million dollars).
