    you sure it wasn’t a casual dress? She’s highly intelligent-with Beautiful, Hypnotic eyes and a Great body! I stayed at the Park Slope Holiday Inn back in May (I live out of state) and took the train to Manhattan to the Vulture Film Festival-mostly to see Maggie. I paid for a front row seat. She was GREAT. I stayed in your Hood so I could tour the Sterling Place Graystone homes (where she lives.) I wish she wouldn’t expose herself so much. She’s even more famous now than in her “Secretary” days. There’s a lot of stalkery people out there (not ME…I’m just Curious.)
