Happy Birthday, Phoebe Cates. She’s 48 today and got to say one of the most immortal lines from 1980’s television in “Lace”:
I also loved her in “Shag”
She made several more popular films in the 1980’s- early 1990’s ,”Gremlins” and “Fast Times at Ridgemont High” among them, before becoming Mrs. Kevin Kline and putting her career on hold to raise a family.
Another of my favorite actresses from that era, Elizabeth McGovern, recently came back and made a big splash in “Downton Abbey”.
I hope the same will happen one day soon for Phoebe Cates.
