Glasses

December 21, 1986

Paul Rosenfield, writing about Cary Grant, asked us to name two other actors "who had the confidence to wear glasses."

Let's disregard Robert Mitchum, Michael Caine and numerous other men; consider Mia Farrow, who wore glasses throughout "Zelig," or Shelly Hack, who did the same in "If I Ever See You Again."

There's Sophia Loren, who's worn them on several national TV shows (yes, she has endorsed a line of frames, but why not?); such part-time bespectacled beauties as Cybill Shepherd (in "Taxi Driver" and "Silver Bears"), Veronica Hamel on "Hill Street Blues," not to mention stars in other walks of such such as Gloria Steinem and Liz Claiborne.

Like Cary Grant, many of us feel that wearing glasses is OK.
