I just love Beanie Feldstein. I, first of all, think the name “Beanie Feldstein” is amazing — her given name is Elizabeth, which is one of the more nickname-able names in the world (ironically, my sister is also named Elizabeth and I call her…Elizabeth. I do not think she’ll let me call her “Beanie,” even though it’s SO cute?). Second, I think she’s a delightful actress. Third, she’s playing Monica Lewinsky in the Lewinsky-produced American Crime Story about…you know, Monica Lewinsky, and I think she’s going to be great. Fourth, she’s at TIFF for the adaptation of Caitlin Moran’s How to Build a Girl, and between all of that and Booksmart, I just think she’s so good at picking what I like to call Smart Girl Parts. More smart girl parts for everyone!
She also looked very cute in Toronto this week.
