I have a serious backlog of reader submissions, and I’m getting through them little by little and in no particular order. This one came in awhile back, from Emma, and I’ve been meaning to put it up. I love the description. Thanks, Emma!
This is the Where’s Waldo of Claire Danes crying faces because you know it’s there but you have to look hard to see it. It’s also on my Tumblr page here.
And Congrats to Ms. Danes for taking home the Golden Globe for her excellent (crying and otherwise) work on Homeland.
No need to put on that cry face now that Homeland is over — we’ve got reader submissions! This one comes from a .gif-ted (see what I did there?) anonymous submitter, from Shopgirl. Behold the awesomeness.
Awhile back, someone asked me if I’d posted any pics from Temple Grandin. It had been a long time since I’d seen it, and I couldn’t recall any cry face offhand. If there was any, I thought, it would be the scene where she gets into the cattle crush to calm herself down.
Behold! There is cry face! It wouldn’t be a Claire Danes movie otherwise, would it?
If you’ve come across the “Claire Danes Cry Face” meme—it began as a Pinterest board and evolved into this viral montage—you’ve seen the meanish, gleeful thrust of the joke: that every scene or movie which Danes is a part of leads inevitably to the moment when her mouth contorts into a grimace, her lower lip trembles, and she lets out a violent sob (or, as last night’s spoof on S.N.L. put it, “her whole face looks like it’s chewing gum”).
I’ll be meanishly, gleefully thrusting some Temple Grandin up in here this afternoon, so feel free to stop back by later.
