Angela Lansbury Covers The Latest Issue Of “The Gentlewoman”

Three words: Angie. Fucking. Lansbury.

The LEGENDARY 86-years-young Angela Lansbury is a vision on issue six of “fabulous woman’s magazine,” The Gentlewoman, wearing the famed frames of photographer and occasional pervert Terry Richardson. We just hope Terry didn’t try to cop a feel on that 5-time-Tony-Award-winning breast.

But if he did, Angie looked like she might have found herself a new “Bosom Buddy.” [Ed. note: R.I.P. Bea.]

Previous cover stars on the biannual fashion mag have included Adele, a bearded Inez van Lamsweerde (of photographic duo Inez and Vinoodh) and Céline Creative Director Phoebe Philo.

The Gentlewoman proudly presents the universally adored legend of stage and screen Angela Lansbury as this season’s cover star. She leads a cast of the most remarkable and captivating women,” including fellow hardworking actress,  Michelle Dockery of Downton Abbey fame.

Speaking of the Abbey, how awesome would it be if Lansbury joined Shirls MacLaine and Dame Maggs and those three broads just ran train on that entire show? Ugh, we’re dying just thinking about it.

      But why is she wearing his glasses?

      (I truly despise that man.)

      I’m glad to read that Lansbury has five Tonys, because in the 80s and 90s the primetime Emmys seemed also purposedly trying to make a Susan Lucci out of her: 12 consecutive nominations for her Jessica Fletcher lost to Kathy Baker, Patricia Wettig, Dana Delaney, Sela Ward, and before them the Cagney & Lacey pair.

      I love Angela, all the way back to “Gaslight” and “Portrait of Dorian Gray” in the 40s, and especially her commie mommie, Eleanor Iselin in “Manchurian Candidate.”

      Sorry, Meryl Streep, but Lansbury kicked your ass in the original Manchurian Candidate. She gave one of the most chilling performances ever captured on screen, and it was a crime that she did not win the Oscar.

      Happy to see all the love for Angela, whom I’ve loved ever since seeing Bedknobs and broomsticks as a kid. Granted, that’s not much to go on, but she always did seem like such a lovely ‘gentlewoman’. Reading the comments here makes me want to look at some of her older classics, which I’ll certainly get around to soon.
