Kate Hudson to Portray "Big Eyes" Artist Margaret Keane

Kate Hudson to Portray "Big Eyes" Artist Margaret Keane


Kate Hudson has been cast to play Margaret Keane, the painter well-known for her depictions of children with gigantic eyes. According to Variety, Keane's works became "one of art's first mass-market success stories in the 1950s."

Aptly titled Big Eyes, the movie will be a drama that follows "Keane's personal awakening at the onset of the feminist movement, leading to a lawsuit she filed against her husband, Walter, who claimed credit for her works."

A pretty far cry from Fool's Gold, it will be refreshing to see Hudson get back to showing her real acting chops, the kind of stuff we've been craving ever since her performance in Almost Famous. Despite those little painted kids totally creeping me out, I'm curious to see how this film turns out.

Kate's not a very good actress in anything beyond being cute and giggly, which is far from Margaret Keane's life. I'm disappointed with the casting. That could ruin an otherwise compelling film about an interesting artist. I was just in the Keane gallery a couple of months ago. I have a Keane plate.

This sounds interesting. Keane is a fantastic artist. I'd like to see how Hudson portrays her.

YES!! Keane is one of my absolute favourite artists, I am a big fan of big-eye art in general and have been collecting them for a couple years now. I will be looking forward to seeing this movie. :)

I literally was just watching Almost Famous five seconds ago and was just thinking that Kate Hudson's career has really taken a turn for the worse which is a shame bc she is really talented and charming. I'm sure Fool's Gold will do great this weekend but it looks awful. I'm not even going to talk about how bad You, Me, and Dupree was...

I'm really happy to see Kate get a role with some substance! The woman is seriously a great actor and it makes me cringe seeing her relegated to movies like "Fools Gold" because there are so few good roles for women in Hollywood. Go Kate!
