I recently read a description of Meryl Streep in the January issue of Town&Country that I thought was so on-point. The author of the article, Molly Haskell, described her "off-center looks" as a "milky--man-in-the-moon face, round and flat in certain lights and in others full of shadows and contours." I tried to test out how perfect of a description it was:
Me:"I'm going to send you a description of someone and you guess who it is."
MC: "Up for the challenge."
Me: "A female, actress, with a man-in-the-moon face."
I almost thought it was too easy... turns out it was difficult only because so many people fit the description:
1. Sandra Oh 2.Christina Ricci 3. Julia Stiles 4. Renee Zellweger 5. Jenna Fischer, followed by a justification: "While she isn't as moonfaced as her colleague Dwight Shrute she is slightly moonish." 6. Abigail Breslin 7. Joan Cusack 8. Tild Swinton and finally... 9. Meryl.
