Next Movie compiled a list of 15 actors and actresses who they believe will be the biggest fall breakout stars of 2011. Among them was our very own Mary Elizabeth Winstead. Here’s what they had to say about her:
In this prequel to John Carpenter’s terrifying 1982 movie, Winstead takes a flamethrower to her “Scott Pilgrim” alter ego Ramona Flowers, not to mention a whole buttload of slimy, gooey, awful aliens. While we loved Ramona’s cool style and multicolored hair, it’s great to see Winstead as a parka-wearing scientist caught in the middle of an increasingly horrific situation. (Not to mention that Carpenter’s “The Thing” was all dudes, all the time.) We’ll be seeing more of Winstead next summer as Mary Todd Lincoln in Timur Bekmambetov’s big screen adaptation of “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter,” alongside Benjamin Walker, Dominic Cooper, and Anthony Mackie. So protect your neck — Ms. Winstead’s coming.
Mary’s star has always shined, it’s only a matter of time until the rest of Hollywood and the rest of the world notices if you ask me. Best wishes to Mary and her career. 🙂
