Elizabeth McGovern Says Being With Sean Penn Was “Exhausting”

January 24, 2022 / Posted by:

Elizabeth McGovern isn’t just one of the very fancy Countess from Downton Abbey – she’s also an actress who has had a really long career that began in the 80s. I’m pretty sure that almost all actors from the 1980s have a story about Sean Penn, in one way or another (Sean Penn did all my coke, Sean Penn stole my car while high on coke, Sean Penn borrowed my favorite leather jacket from the backseat of my car after he stole it and returned it without a single ounce of coke in the pockets). But Elizabeth has many stories because they dated for a while. The biggest takeaway from dating Sean Penn?

Downton Abbey’s Closing

March 26, 2015 / Posted by:

I know a certain closet case former state rep who just did a for real death drop on his floor (which is an exact recreation of the one at Highclere Castle, natch) over this. All of those screaming and suicidal One Direction tweens can now welcome newly screaming and suicidal women and gays to their candlelight vigil. Downton Abbey is officially done with Season 6. I know, you cannot find the words to say how you feel.

Executive producer Gareth Neame released a statement about the Dowager Countess Maggie Smith, sexy silver fox the Earl of Grantham (don’t judge), and the rest of those uptight and extremely pale types closing the doors after the upcoming season. Can I have that Branson dude now that they don’t need him anymore? Rraow.

Millions of people around the world have followed the journey of the Crawley family and those who serve them for the last five years. Inevitably there comes a time when all shows should end and Downton is no exception. We wanted to close the doors of Downton Abbey when it felt right and natural for the storylines to come together and when the show was still being enjoyed so much by its fans. We can promise a final season full of all the usual drama and intrigue, but with the added excitement of discovering how and where they all end up…

I’ve only watched the show a couple of times. But I know of the Dowager Countess. She better end up annoyedly flapping her fan as the Queen’s new Official Thrower of Shade. That bitch is so shady. She’s like an awning mixed with an umbrella accompanied by a leafy tree. Love her. And I hope she takes out Elizabeth McGovern’s character’s sing-songy, annoying ass in the end. You were so good wearing clogs and comforting a young Timothy Hutton in Ordinary People, Elizabeth. What happened?
