When I originally saw this photo, I zipped past it thinking, “oh, look, there’s some eccentric old lady creative at the Film Festival.” I assumed she was some batty but talented producer/editor/director — someone gifted and wacky that I would not recognize. “Good for you, Wacky Old Lady,” I thought. “I hope you’re drinking a lot of wine in Italy and really living it up.” But it is NOT a Wacky Old Lady — at least, not yet, NOT TECHNICALLY. It is…Ellen Pompeo:

She is living her Wacky Old Lady Life, right out loud, and about thirty years too soon. I also think this possibly answers my question about wine.
