“Steel Magnolias” is one of the greatest movies ever made, according to most Southern women, anyway. The 1989 film epitomizes the strong bonds of female friendship and 27 years after its release, it’s still relevant, funny and heart-breaking. And just about anyone born before 1992 can quote a line or 12 from it.
During a recent interview with People and Entertainment Weekly, Sally Field and Shirley MacLaine shared their thoughts and feelings about each other and their co-stars Julia Roberts, Dolly Parton, Olympia Dukakis and Daryl Hannah.
What’s truly incredible about Field’s and MacLaine’s answers is how sincere they are. Clearly, the bonds forged while making the film were real and still are.
Obviously, our favorite answer was Field’s description of Parton, “No one really knows the total gem of a soul that Dolly Parton is. I love her.”
Still, so good.
