Jean Smart Daughter – The 69-year-old actress appears in everything from a superhero drama to a riveting murder mystery to a politically incorrect comedy, which is why her name has been trending on social media. Pop culture addicts can’t get enough of her work or her as a person. This trifecta of projects is available on HBO and its streaming service, HBO Max, which is not a terrible thing.
“I mean, I couldn’t really say ‘no’ to any of those roles.” “I just do not want for people to get tired of me; that would be terrible.” The Hacks actress, 70, attended Sunday’s Emmy Awards with her 13-year-old son Forrest, whom she shares with her late husband, Richard Gilliland. Smart, 31, is also the mother of 31-year-old Connor.
Smart and her son both wore elegant black ensembles to the occasion, with Smart donning a long black gown with a sheer turtleneck and her son donning a black suit and blue undershirt.
The pair spoke with E! on the red carpet about Smart’s nominations, which included acting honors for her work on Hacks and Mare of Easttown.
“Receiving recognition and nominations is a life-long experience. To be sure, it’s all part of the pleasure, and being recognised by your peers is the ultimate honour “As intelligently said.
Regarding his mother’s nominations, Forrest said that he is “very proud of her” and that she “deserves” the honors due to her “really hard work.”
Smart, whose career spans almost five decades, spoke up to TODAY about her many roles and how this current one has been the busiest and very likely the greatest ever.
Smart mourned her late husband and thanked her two daughters as she accepted her prize Sunday. “I would not be here without him putting his career on hold to allow me. Connor and Forrest, my two wonderful selfless children.”
Smart is perhaps best known to audiences from her role as the naïve and sweet-natured Charlene, whose ditziness was often the brunt of many jokes. The epidemic prompted viewers to rewatch classics like “The Golden Girls” and “Designing Women” (which aired on CBS from 1986 to 1993) — which Smart did recently, for a good cause.
“Annie Potts and I read the Sony pilot screenplay for a fundraiser, and it was bizarre,” she said. “Both of us said that it seemed as though we had just completed it a week before. It was a bizarre situation.”
