In the book, Leo will cover her decades working in both television and film, as well as her childhood, and tumultuous relationship with actor John Heard.

    Is “Consider” the title?

    0920302118Amazing! Oscar Best Supporting Actress winner is also a good writer! I’m impressed by her speech when she winning the award. She was so exciting that four-letter words split out of her tongue. Funny but straightforward! I like her.
    Winning an Academy Award may change an actor’s acting career and even his whole life. Many of them become celebrated and star in lots of famous movies. However, some of them who don’t get any award may remain nameless. They may have to struggle for their job as an actor or just turn to another job.
    Anyhow, hoping Melissa will also be a winner as a writer!

    Trash. I don’t care if it was an accident, you don’t say the F-bomb at the Oscars. And what exactly does she have to write about? I’d never even heard of her before she was in that movie “Frozen River,” so what exactly does she have to dish to us about?

    • Tracy

      I understand how people were upset about the F-bomb. I am too. But, she is a fabulous actress. I used to watch her on the tv show “Homicide” and she was awesome.

      she is a jew, she will make something up, all she wants is money, typical disgusting jew!!!!

        I know Melissa, and she ISN’T Jewish. But you’re the disgusting one, you Nazi a**hole.

      Trash? Well aren’t you the arbiter of class, Brandi? The great thing about books is that you have the choice not to read them! So Melissa Leo will just have to deal without your business. But I get the impression that you don’t do a whole lot of reading anyway.

    Does jewish hollywood (yes all jews) think we care about hearing of yet another jew? No, melissa we don’t respect jews who’s careers have been created for them by other jews. What a pack of pukes!!!

      Do you love Jesus? He was a Jew. Without Jews we Christians wouldn’t have a savior. Besides, so many actors have Jewish backgrounds that I bet some of your favorites are Jewish and you don’t even know it.

    Her award was a joke. She’s supposed to be portraying someone from Lynn, Ma and she had a Long Island accent

    • sue wong

      it is Lowell, Massachusetts if you watched the film, and the accent was correct..

    Typical book that you’ll see at the dollar store about a month after it gets published

  • Drew

    Melissa is not Jewish. But the person who made the comment about her should be barred from commenting here.
