There’s a lot of things you could say about Parker Posey, but you’d certainly have to agree that the woman knows how to live. Look at her here, strolling down the sidewalk in NYC, yapping on the phone to her best gay friend, sipping on some iced coffee. Aren’t you just completely jealz of her mellow lifestyle?

Parker Posey: She is a wondrous real-life example of “bitch-don’t-give-a-fuck” writ large. She’s the personality behind the descriptive term I’ve coined, “Parker Posey crazy,” which denotes a woman or man who might scathingly bitch you out and then pee in your wineglass or something. And she’s the owner of a small, poodle-ish dog, that perfectly complements her BDGAF attitude. I can’t decide what my favorite part of this ensemble is. Is it the harem pants? The clogs? the tiny cross-body bag that’s placed just-so to look like a weird lady codpiece? All I know is that I’m sure she’d be super fucking fun to get drunk and possibly commit a crime with.

It’s hard to imagine anyone other than Angelina Jolie (and THOSE LIPS!) in the Oscar-winning role of Lisa in the 1999 film “Girl, Interrupted.” But Parker Posey recently revealed she turned down an audition for the role. ”What I did pass on that may surprise you is ‘Girl, Interrupted.’ The Angelina Jolie role … I just didn’t care enough about it. I don’t know. There was something about it. They probably wanted me to audition and I didn’t feel like doing it, or maybe they wanted me to jump through hoops and I didn’t feel like doing it,” Posey said. ”Honestly, I just didn’t care about it enough to be grounded in it… And she won the Academy Award! Isn’t that funny?” [Contact Music]
