For Jena Malone "ageism" has always been an issue. Malone isn't your typical 40-year-old actress, newly sidelined to character roles, or a graying writer sent to pasture for presumed inability to comprehend teen lingo. She is about as fresh-faced as they come, a dewy 19-year-old, with white luminous skin, sad greenish eyes and floppy brown hair that slopes down to her long, oval cheeks.

When a loved one dies, sometimes those left behind experience a sort of purgatory themselves, a pause seized by grief. "The Wait" opens with just such a passing of a family matriarch, and a mysterious phone call convinces Emma (Chloë Sevigny) that her mother will rise from the dead like Lazarus. Or Jesus. They just have to wait. Emma's sister Angela (Jena Malone), going through some kind of breakup, finds the situation macabre but uses the break from daily life to reclaim her sense of freedom after a relationship of neglect.

With Jena Malone, everyone just knew. She herself knew at the age of 4 that she wanted to be an actress. ("I'd go to movies and then go home and reenact them.") At age 10, she knew she was ready to start going on auditions. The people working on her first project, a student film, knew she was special and told their friends in Los Angeles. Eventually, she made her way into the casting office for the lead role of the sexually abused young girl in last year's cable movie "Bastard Out of Carolina."

"I think women are ideally suited to directing," Anjelica Huston says. "They are emotional beings. I think film is an emotional medium." Huston, winner of the 1985 best supporting actress Oscar for "Prizzi's Honor," has followed in the footsteps of her legendary director father, John Huston. The star of 1990's "The Grifters" and 1991's "The Addams Family" makes her directorial debut with the disturbing, hard-hitting "Bastard Out of Carolina," which airs Sunday on Showtime.

Is the celebrity quotient up or down at the current round of runway shows at New York Fashion Week? No one's keeping score, but it's hard to find coverage that doesn't mention big names in the front row.  Times Fashion Critic Booth Moore and staff writer Adam Tschorn have reported a number of sightings, as have other media outlets. Consider: At Tommy Hilfiger, guests “of note” included Anthony Kiedis, Vogue's Anna Wintour and Tommy Mottola. Kanye West, Solange Knowles, Courtney Love and Kerry Washington showed up at Alexander Wang.

Jennifer Lawrence wore Dior -- and her new pixie cut -- to the world premiere of  "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" in London on Monday. Elizabeth Banks wore a stunning Jason Wu ball gown with cutouts. [Hollywood Life] Their co-star Jena Malone was dressed in a fringed crimson gown by Monique Lhuillier. [Perez Hilton] The film's director, Francis Lawrence, is taking the blame for his leading lady's new short haircut, by the way. Jennifer had to cut her hair because of all the damage done when Francis insisted she dye her locks rather than wear a wig in the film.

In movies with Jena Malone, the least one can expect is a persuasive performance. And that's just what you get Sunday evening from the talented young actress ("Bastard Out of Carolina," "Stepmom") in her latest entry, a CBS frontier drama titled "The Ballad of Lucy Whipple." She plays California, the bright, book-loving 13-year-old daughter of Glenn Close's Arvella Whipple, a rigid Massachusetts widow running a boardinghouse in Lucky Diggins, a dusty mining town, circa 1850.
