MAY/JUNE 2018 SPOTLIGHT Continued from page 11 a lawyer who insults her before realizing they were being set up on a date. As the years pass, Senna and Adam con- nect romantically, but she is against marriage, and he can’t quite figure out what Senna wants from all of the mixed signals she sends. All I Wish shows how Senna grapples with her feelings about work and relationships, as well as her mother’s (Ellen Burstyn) desire for Senna to get her life together and get married––in any order. Senna only figures out who she is when the people she loves aren’t around.” Another component to her comeback is her role in the HBO miniseries Mosaic. “It is a great role and I feel very blessed because I took time out from my career, and to come back to this type of intriguing work… I found it very, very wonderful,” Stone told Deadline at a recent awards event. “The veteran actress plays Olivia Lake in director Steven Soderbergh’s murder mystery about an investigation into the murder of children’s author, Lake,” Deadline describes as the miniseries’ plot. This March, Stone turned 60—an age where many Hol- lywood ladies are looking to retire, and she’s looking to experience a resurgence in her career. Stone appeared nearly unrecognizable in Lovelace, 2013. “I thought it was going to hit me in the head like a boulder off the side of the hill while driving on Mulholland,” Stone told Entertainment Tonight of the significance of turning 60. “But it seems that I’m landing on doves, because of all of the love, and just,” she pauses, and then sighs contentedly. “Love. There’s so much love in my life, and it’s so touching and beautiful.” Her voice cracks as she gets momentarily emotional, before laughing it off. “It’s just so beautiful. It’s just so beautiful.” Entertainment Tonight nicely sums up the recent career mile- stones that Stone is experiencing: “Though the actress nev- er completely disappeared off the grid, this year sees her return in a big way, in Steven Soderbergh’s whodunit HBO series, Mosaic, and in All I Wish, out March 30, playing Stone achieved international recognition for her role in the erotic thriller Basic Instinct, in 1992. 12 TEXOMA AREA Living Well Magazine | MAY/JUNE 2018
