Because of her highly buzzed about film Smashed, UpandComers has named Mary on of the breakout stars of 2012. Here’s what they wrote:
Fanboys have long considered Mary Elizabeth Winstead a dream girl thanks to her many roles in various horror movies, the “Die Hard” franchise and especially after playing Ramona Flowers in Edgar Wright’s “Scott Pilgrim vs the World”, and in 2012, she’s got the admiration of serious film buffs as well thanks to a revelatory turn in Sundance hit “Smashed.” Now, armed with awards-worthy acting chops which has already earned her an Independent Spirit Award nomination, she’ll continue to diversify her already eclectic resume. It’s back to Sundance next month with two films, the coming of age dramedy “The Spectacular Now” with Miles Teller and Shailene Woodley, which reunites Winstead with her “Smashed” director James Ponsoldt, and comedy “A.C.O.D.” She also stars in Roman Coppola’s “Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III”, loosely based on the life of and starring Charlie Sheen and after being shortlisted a bunch of times, is it finally her turn to land a major role in a superhero franchise?
Congrats, Mary! 🙂
