Sigourney Weaver Talks About Political Animals

Sigourney Weaver Talks Playing a Woman Reminiscent of Hillary Clinton

Sigourney Weaver is hoping women will grab a glass of wine, put up their feet, and enjoy her new show, Political Animals, each Sunday on USA. The actress plays Elaine Barrish, a former first lady who stood by her cheating husband before unsuccessfully running for president herself. Sound familiar? The plot mirrors Hillary Clinton's story, except that Sigourney Weaver's character divorces her husband before eventually becoming secretary of state. On The Daily Show last night, Sigourney explained that Elaine is not a fictional portrayal of Hillary Clinton; instead, the show is inspired by a range of American "dynasties," including the Kennedys. Watch her talk about playing a passionate woman with Jon Stewart now.
