Mamie Gummer is an actress's actress. Without pomp, without vanity, without ego, she surrenders herself into every role she plays fully and truly. It may be those magical genes, but that only goes part of the way in explaining the grace, wit and sensitivity that radiate through everything she does, professional or otherwise. For this portrait she came to our studio through the pouring rain, 7 months pregnant, beaming and good natured, without a lick of makeup, slipped into our Gaitskill tunic, and opened up about her travels, her first pregnancy and her upcoming projects.
As with all our shirtfiend subjects, we posed these three questions about uniform.
What does uniform mean to you?
What does the word uniform bring to mind? So many things. Sports. School. Military. Police (eek), etc. etc. And of course those smart uniforms they wear at Foot Locker with the referee jerseys. Although I guess that sort of counts as Sports? Anyway, “uniform” needn’t be associated with conformity. To me, it can represent solidarity. A group of people with a common goal.
