Happy Birthday, Jennifer Jason Leigh
It just doesn't seem to make sense that the young Jennifer Jason Leigh, pictured above in 1982's Fast Times at Ridgemont High, turns 48 years old today. How can that be? It seems like just yesterday she played the creepy and sadistic roommate of Bridget Fonda in 1992's Single White Female. Or the love interest of a Baldwin in 1991's Backdraft. (That was a Baldwin, right?)
Thirty-something suffering from nostalgia but, thankfully, not from bouts of irony. Here, I will revisit artifacts of popular culture not sufficiently explored elsewhere, though I may perhaps stray from that mission at times.
