Let’s all take a moment to appreciate the perfection that is this picture…
Seriously, Smash wins everything for best mother/daughter casting in the history of television. Bernadette Peters playing mother to Megan Hilty, Bernadette’s Leigh playing Gladys to Megan’s Ivy who plays Marilyn… I still have to take a moment to think of the beauty of this.
No one did/will ever cast a most perfect mother/daughter duo. EVER. Because so much perfection could only have been born from so much perfection.
You’re my mother and you can’t even say one kind word, and you know who else had a mother like that? Marilyn. Look how she turned out. She was an unhappy, drug-addicted disaster, because her mother didn’t love her.
