    Her acclaimed performance in the recent hit thriller "Unfaithful" in which she carries the film, (Richard Gere has half the screen time, and she acts him off the park).

    Talent, beauty, respected...

    Martin,

    Firstly DIANE LANE got loadsa publicity for UNFAITHFUL. Probably more than GERE, got.

    Secondly, there is no way that DIANE LANE is "an obscure unknown". She may not be as famous as Julia Roberts but she is certainly not "obscure" or an "unknown". I would have said that she's bordering on the A-list.

    Yeah, I agree. She was cool in "Streets..."

    Martin, believe me, she's a much bigger star than you seem to think she is. She was in loadsa magazines and talk shows when UNFAITHFUL came out and that was a hit. She's more popular now than ever!

    I still remember her in her debut "A Little Romance" in '79.

    What is it with Diane Lane on this Forum? [​IMG]
    There must be a post a week about her.

    My favorite role for her was Mark Wahlberg's mother in Perfect Storm.

    Some other actresses you may also like...

    Meryl Streep
    Melanie Griffith
    Sigourney Weaver
    Sally Field

    Those are some hotties!

    I think you'll find that it was Mark Wahlberg's GIRLFRIEND she played in "The Perfect Storm" not he's mother.

    My favourite is "Unfaithful" - a star-making role and performance that has, somehow, not made her a star.

    Martin,

    I would say that Diane Lane is now definately a star.

    She get's "above the title" billing in practically everything she does now and "Unfaithful" won her alot of acclaim and recognition.

    She may not be Julia Roberts but she's definately a star, and she's probably as famous as she wants to be. Not every actor wants to be hounded by the press all the time. I bet she makes a great living, earning more money than you or I could dream of, getting conistent work and industry respect.

    Many an actress would envy her.

    She was voted Celebrity of the Month by the way:

    Wait till Oscar season comes around, you're gonna be hearing a lot of her. Her performance in Unfaithful will be remembered.

    Checking in to remind that not only men find Diane Lane wonderful and sexy. You Diane Lane fans HAVE checked out The Cotton Club by now, right?

    The movie coming out in May probably didn't help, either.

    She may be a tad overlooked, but in no way is she obscure.

    When you look and see how little publicity and exposure Diane Lane got for her lead role and excellent reviewed performance in "Unfaithful" (a film that has made $100 million at the boxoffice), and then compare that to the huge amount of publicity Angelina Jolie got for "Life Or Something Like It" (a film that tanked at $16 million boxoffice) or Cameron Diaz in "The Sweetest Thing" another film that flopped, or better yet, how much wonderful publicity Sharon Stone got for wearing her dress to Cannes. I could go on....

    For some reason it seems that wearing a dress to a film premiere makes you a star more than giving a knock-out performance in a hit movie. I appreciate Diane Lane may not want to be Julia Roberts, but I'm sure that she's sick and tired of being overlooked all the time as well.

    Sorry Matt, but I think Diane Lane is very obscure. I was speaking with someone the other day who knows quite a bit about films and we were talking about "Unfaithful" and he said that it was a real return to form for Richard Gere. When I asked him what he thought of Diane Lane's performance, he said "Who's Diane Lane? Was that Gere's wife?"

    It's strange but even though she's completely unknown, I bet most people have seen her movies.

    Martin,

    Diane Lane is definatey not "obscure". She is a sizable name star in Hollywood and believe me I bet she's seriously rich. I'd love $3 million for a few weeks work!

    I think she's probably got the ideal celebrity lifestyle - she earns loadsa money, gets consistent work in Hollywood films with big name co-stars, is respected in the industry, and yet she can still eat in a restaurant without the media photographing every mouthful. Sounds great to me. If I was an actress (which I'm not) I'd want to be like her.
