We chatted with Virginia Madsen this morning about her new film “Hot Flashes” that opens this weekend!
“Hot Flashes” stars Brooke Shields, Darryl Hannah, Virginia Madsen, Wanda Sykes, and Camryn Manheim as a former high school basketball team that get together and play the current high school champs full of mean teen girls for charity. They have to get in shape again, and Virginia says her character smokes while she’s trying to dribble the basketball.
One of the things she loves about this story is the friendship between women which she doesn’t feel gets accurately portrayed in movies. What woman actually dances around her kitchen with her friends and feels better afterwards. Every woman doesn’t eat ice cream straight from the carton.
