This Wednesday on Calling Old Hollywood, you know him from ‘The Pope of Greenwich Village’, ‘Runaway Train’, ‘The Expendables’, ‘Star 80’, ‘The Dark Knight’, and countless other films and television shows. My guest is Actor Eric Roberts. I’ve wanted to interview Eric for awhile for sentimental reasons. Growing up, my Mothers favorite film was 1995 drama ‘Saved by the light’. My mother passed when I was 12 and I’ve always wanted to share with Eric what that film meant to her, and how it’s become a beautiful reminder for me of her. He was very touched to hear this, and we spoke in depth about his portrayal as Dannion Brinkley. We also touched on showbiz, purpose, the importance of pursuing dreams, past films he’s done, and more.

Natasha Gregson Wagner
Happy Mother’s Day to all celebrating with and all remembering their Mother 🌸🌷 I’ve just re-released the podcast episode I did last year with Natasha Gregson Wagner — Actress and daughter of Natalie Wood. We did this episode intentionally for Mother’s Day. Natasha shared so fondly memories her mother, the book and documentary she made in her honor, and more. As someone who also lost her mother at a young age, Natasha and I spoke about what the bgrief has been like, comparing existential notes so to speak on how we as strong women coped with and learned to live in a world without our Mothers. It’s a beautiful episode and whether or not you’re celebrating today with your Mom, or you’re in the same boat as us — check out the episode and don’t forget — you are loved and you are not alone.
