GIA | The 7 Best Movies to Buy or Stream This Week

We found this review about GIA with some very nice words about Elizabeth’s performance. 😀

June 25, 2019

Some genuinely excellent movies have quietly landed on your streaming services in the past week or so, and we’re happy to send you in their direction.

ON AMAZON PRIME

Gia: Angelina Jolie officially went from “progeny to keep your eye on” to “full-on undeniable movie star” with this 1998 HBO biopic from director Michael Cristofer. As Gia Marie Carangi, a bisexual model and drug addict who died of AIDS at 26, Jolie found the perfect role for her tortured bad-girl sexiness; she’s fierce and unforgettable in the role, which nabbed her a Golden Globe and SAG award. Elizabeth Mitchell (later of Lost) is just as memorable in the complicated role of the woman who loves her. And, side trivia note: young Gia is portrayed by Mila Kunis. Of course.

Old Article | Beauty and The Beast

We found this old and nice article about Liz.

August 2001

Highland Park grad Elizabeth Mitchell goes from the emergency room to the newsroom.

Elizabeth Mitchell broke her nose in 2000 on the set of Frequency, her first feature film, but that didn’t stop her from bulldozing her way to the top. You might say she takes after her parents, Joseph and Josephine Jenkins-Mitchell, real estate and tax attorneys whose practice is a stone’s throw away from their Highland Park home. But breaking out of her upper-middle-class comfort zone and pursuing her dream of acting was more important to the budding thespian than following in her parent’s footsteps. “You’ve gotta go for it,” Mitchell says, “and go for it with gusto.”

Mitchell honed her acting skills at the Dallas Theater Center for six years before graduating from Highland Park High School in 1988. She earned a BFA in acting from Stephens College in Missouri and also spent a year at the British American Drama Academy before relocating to LA in 1994. The following year saw her daytime drama debut as Dinah Lee Mayberry on Loving. That gig led to a co-starring turn with Angelina Jolie in HBO’s Gia, the vehicle that made Jolie famous. But Mitchell’s big break came recently, when she burst onto the primetime scene playing lesbian psychiatrist Dr. Kim Legaspi on ER. Her role opposite ER veteran Laura Innes caught the eye of rival network ABC, and Mitchell quickly landed her own show. She currently laments the lethargy of bureaucracy and wrestles with the ethics of journalism as hard-nosed reporter Alice Allenby on The Beast, a reality-based news show. The concept is a tricky one for ABC to pull off; it requires a bit more active participation than Survivor. But if Beast doesn’t sit well with viewers, don’t fault Mitchell. She pulls off the smart-and-pretty combo with remarkable ease, and we’re confident we haven’t seen the last of her.

Angelina Jolie’s 35 Hottest Costars

Elizabeth_Mitchell_Angelina_Jolie_Gia_2.jpgWe found this article about Angelina Jolie’s 35 Hottest Costars and they included Liz in the list. 😛

It’s no secret that Angelina Jolie is one gorgeous woman, but did you know Jolie also has some of the most beautiful co-stars on the big screen? Seriously, this is one lucky lady who gets to star alongside quite a few male and female beauties. With that said, let’s take a look at 35 of the hottest actors and actresses Jolie’s either gotten to kiss, fight, or simply stand next to in her movies.

This TV movie got a lot of rants and raves, but one thing remains true: Jolie and Elizabeth Mitchell definitely heated up the small screen thanks to their time playing lovers in Gia.

By the way Gia is wonderful and deeply beautiful movie and whoever says it is not, he is drunk, but it’s not even true that it got nevative reviews, on the contrary it has 7/10 stars on imdb and 92% positive reviews on rottentomatoes with 82% of likes among the audience.

About the hottest co-stars… that’s true. We almost watched everything with Angie, so we can judge! 😉 😛

Oh and in case you missed this in our video archive, this is Angie saying which one is her favorite on-screen kiss. Do you wanna guess who that is? 😀

2010 Télé 7 Jours Interview

We got this French magazine’s interview with Elizabeth from 2010 and @pinoche29 was so kind to translate it in English for all of us. It’s mostly about Juliet and CJ. Enjoy! 🙂

Elizabeth Mitchell “I believe in karma”

Elizabeth knows a lot about TV series : ER, SUV, House MD, Spin City and recently Lost, where, for 2 seasons, she’s been part of Hollywood most watched “missing persons”. Télé 7 Jours just found her during the Monte-Carlo Festival, last June…

Elizabeth gained 72 pounds during her pregnancy. She finally lost them on set of the show: “I breastfed my son, I ran on the beach and stopped eating bread.”

She was persuaded that Lost fans were going to hate her.
“Juliet did some pretty immoral things because she’s willing to do anything to survive and see her sister again,” Elizabeth explains.
But the fierce intelligence of the doctor and her unexpected feelings for Jack redeemed her “at least to me!” the actress confesses.
“Juliet stands somewhere between a maternal figure and a venomous snake.”
Like Kate Walsh, Elizabeth succeeded, with her personality and her charisma, to turn an unlikeable character into one of the fans’ favourites and the fact that she wasn’t nominated for an Emmy Award just made an outcry on the internet.
