Catherine keener who is she dating
It took Keener's role as the bitchy Maxine in Spike Jonze's Being John Malkovich in 1999 to put her on the map, winning her Golden Globe and Oscar nominations.It proved what the director Rebecca Miller says, that "she's very good at playing disgruntled". But it's actually made me more comfortable with that thought.As Thandie Newton collected her Best Supporting Actress gong at the Baftas last Sunday, she paid tribute to her fellow nominees - in particular Catherine Keener, who was up for her role as Harper Lee in Capote."The 40-Year-Old Virgin and Capote in the same year," enthused Newton. " If it was meant as a compliment about Keener's diversity - a studio gross-out comedy followed by an independent study of the author Truman Capote - it didn't quite come out right.A darling of the independent film world, Keener has worked twice with Steven Soderbergh (Out of Sight, Full Frontal) and three times with Nicole Holofcener (Walking and Talking, Lovely & Amazing and the forthcoming Friends with Money), who admits that she was instantly drawn to Keener when she saw her on screen. I thought she was so beautiful but really funny - tragically open in a beautiful way." Then there's Tom De Cillo, who gave her a first significant role opposite Brad Pitt in 1991's Johnny Suede before casting her as the frustrated actress in his classic low-budget movie comedy Living in Oblivion.
That said, most of her Hollywood roles have barely registered: a cynical TV presenter in Death to Smoochy; a studio head in S1m0ne; the gun-toting secret service partner to Sean Penn in The Interpreter.Never has a nomination for Best Supporting Actress been more appropriate than for her performance in Capote, as her Harper Lee spends much of the film emotionally propping up Truman Capote."They had a really strong love for each other," says Keener.They separated in September and, with one child, the six-year-old Clyde, Keener now finds herself in the position of her character in her other new release, The Ballad of Jack and Rose.Written and directed by Rebecca Miller, it stars Miller's real-life husband, Daniel Day-Lewis, as Jack, a single parent living on an abandoned island who becomes increasingly aggressive towards the world around him.
