Classic Hollywood star Kim Novak, 81, gets made fun of on Twitter for looking “Frozen” at Oscars
I’m a day late on this but wanted to weigh in about Kim Novak’s appearance on the Academy Awards on Sunday.
The star of such films as Picnic, Pal Joey , The Man With the Golden Arm and Alfred Hitchcock’s Vertigo presented the Best Animated Feature Oscar to Frozen.
Twitter exploded with snark.
Among the tweets: ‘Kim Novak’s face just won for Frozen’ and ‘Kim Novak was just safely transported back to the Hollywood Wax Museum. #Oscars’
Good grief, even that bitch Donald Trump weighed in tweeting: “Kim should sue her plastic surgeon!’”
C’mon! The lady is 81 and she rarely makes public appearances. Yes, her cheeks looked a bit too plump – as did Goldie Hawn’s! – but she’s one of our few stars remaining from the golden era and deserves some respect.
I remember another Oscars telecast Miss Novak appeared at – in 1979 – and she was the night’s sensation because she had not made a movie in a long time and looked absolutely dazzling.
Ronan Farrow said it best on Twitter last night: “Half the people being cruel about Kim Novak are ten years away from being Kim Novak.”
