    another bomb for Natalie. no one should try and portray Jackie O or MM ever again.

  • Delores Pauldo

    Why ? Katie Holmes did it and nobody said nothing about her doing it.

  • Jean Morel

    What are you smoking? People were EXTREMELY critical about Katie Holmes playing the role. From the comments on this very website:

    -”Horrible choice. The girl simply cannot ACT.”
    -”OUTRAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! …gross.”
    -”what in the HELL? My mind is blown right now. She is NOT a good actress”
    -”LMAO–BLASPHEMOUS”
    -”I think the casting is horrible. No way is Katie Jackie O!”
    -”OMG! Katie Holmes as Jacqueline Kennedy?! What a joke!!! Do they want people to watch this miniseries? If so.. they should seriously rethink that casting choice. -gag- is right!”

    etc, etc, etc, etc

  • Delores Pauldo

    Well nobody mentioned that she was bad in the miniseries. And she repeating the role. Don’t know what the title is.

  • getoffmylawn

    She was hideous as Jackie O. No one has ever portrayed Jackie or Marilyn effectively because it cannot be done so they should stop trying.

  • Robyncestrella

    <<o. ★★✫★★✫★★✫★★✫★★✫★★✫★★✫★★✫★★✫★★✫★★✫★★✫★★✫★★✫★★✫★★✫★★✫★★::::::!fn90m:….,….,.

  • Jean Morel

    Um, yes, they did also. The fact that she’s reprising the role doesn’t mean she wasn’t criticized. From after the show aired:

    -”The Kennedys is very badly acted and Katie contributed to the debacle with her stilted, over done portrayal of Jackie O”
