My partner Connie and I absolutely love the show Frankie & Grace! You just say it like it is and we all love it. And I listened to you in the 70s as well seeing you in that BIG chair and saying "one ringy dingy"! I use that expression often. Hope you travel to the Tampa Bay Area soon. Blessings...
I love all of your work! I just finished a 12 hour marathon viewing of " Grace & Frankie"! Love the show!
Just start watching season 2 of Frankie & Grace looking forward to the new season as ALL four main actors are brilliant and its a great platform for the newer actors they can learn so much. I hope I get the chance to meet you and Miss Fonda Best Wishes Jamie
Love your bangle bracelets from season 2 episode 9 (square colored ones). Where can I buy them?
I was blown away by Grace and Frankie and then in Season 2, Episode 6 I did a spit-take when I saw Frankie's vagina print. So ... check out this link and see if the last picture looks a little familiar. http://www.scarletwoman.org/scarletletter/v6n1/v6n1_yoniexpressions.html
Lily, from one Kentucky girl to another.... thank you! I've enjoyed both seasons of "Grace & Frankie" (need more). My sixteen year old twin daughters also stumbled upon it independently on Netflix. I know someday we three will be best friends for their exact reaction was "I can't get enough of this.... Is getting old this cool? If it is, I can't wait!"
I'm one of your "newer" fans so I guess you could say I'm late to the party 🙂 I grew up watching 'The Magic School Bus' so you're voice fills me with childhood memories. I first got to SEE you on 'Will & Grace.' The reason I had to come find some way to reach out though, is because I absolutely LOVED 'Grace & Frankie,' and I just got 25mins into 'Grandma' before saying out loud to myself "I think this is the best movie I've EVER seen!" You command such depth in your performance... I'm running out of ways to tell you how awesome you are. I'll finish with this. On top of bringing life to some incredible women, you also bring a positive light to the LGBT community by showing everyone that we're all just PEOPLE. The social magnitude of which is monumental. Thank you Lilly! You make the world a better place.
Hello, I am very grateful for your comedy and am also very very grateful for you advocacy of educating people about the abuse of elephants in circuses. I would love to say hello at your upcoming show at the Luther Burbank Center for the Arts in Santa Rosa, Calif on June 4th. I would love to buy some merch that has any of that kind of message especially. Is that a potential? Thanks
I'm currently working on questions to ask friends and others about the notion of "who is the epitome of cool?" Although I am looking for those who people actually know, I'll make an exception for myself by proclaiming Lilly that is portrayed as Frankie is the the coolest person. Intelligent, not afraid to speak her mind, is kind to the environment, compassionate with others yet fully realizes and embraces her vulnerabilities. Archetype of a cool dude (or in her case, Dudette!)
Hey y'all, I'd just like to say congratulations on your "official" marriage. A union like yours is just a wonderful thing. Y'all give me hope for that ever-after love and I'm gratfeul for your example.
Love you Lily, but this entry is specifically for Janr. Saw J.T. in 1980 at age 9. Has stuck with me all these years. And I am from Knoxville, TN.
Thank you for all you do to make this a better world. My wife and I love Grace and frankie. What a great cast. It looks like you guys are having so much fun making the show. It always leave me feeling good!
You got a permanent place in my heart decades ago, when I read a "Times" article saying you sawed your couch in two with your brother, one night when your parents weren't home. You wanted a sectional couch. I got to grow up with a green sectional couch, and it was the best thing ever. Fort maker extraordinaire. Thank you for bringing my attention to the joys and freedom that furniture can provide, and thank you for so many laughs with your deeply humane, safe humor.
I watched the Party episode of Frankie and Grace last night. It hit me hard. I lived a lot of that episode 9 months, when my partner of 24 years wanted help in dying. Her breast cancer came back, stage 4, and she felt exactly the same way Babe dod. She hated having to be cared for. She hated being dependent. She wanted help to die. Fortunately she didn't suffer for long. I wish I had been as good a friend to her as Frankie was to Babe. Its one of my biggest regrets.
I became a fan of Ms. Tomlin at the tender age of 9. My parents were very young and allowed to watch Laugh In and I became enamored with Edith Ann. My father would have me perform Edith for his drunk friends at many gatherings and Irish wakes. Thank you Ms. Tomlin and Ms. Wagner for the many years of laughter and subtle observations. Love from Michigan!
Thank you Lily for getting back on TV! I've always enjoyed your work and now my 26 year old daughter and I both are enjoying you together! Your timing is perfection and banter with Jane Fonda hilarious. I sure hope you all can give us several seasons of enjoyment and belly laughs! The best kind! Thanks again. Cindy. El Dorado Hills, CA
Lily, Thanks so much for characters such as Ernestine, Edith Ann, Mrs. Beasley. 2 of my favorite films of yours are: Nine To Five and The Incredible Shrinking Woman. Thanks so very much. I love you, Kevin
Lily, I have been a fan of yours for years. Thank you for your amazing work. I just completed viewing the first season of Grace & Frankie on NETFLIX. I was privileged as nurse to provide care for AIDS patients in the late 1980s when they were doing the AZT trials at the National Institutes for Health in Bethesda, MD. I learned I was homophobic. Many wonderful gay patients helped me to understand another way of seeing life. I appreciate Grace & Frankie because you address many issues regarding homosexuality, age and womens' issues that many of us think about but do not discuss. I appreciate your words and heartfelt challenges and excellent acting. The series is also funny at the appropriate times. Thank you and your great cast, especially Jane Fonda. I will be 70 in August. By the way...you look fabulous! Sincerely, Connie
IMy Father always said that we are third cousins to the Tomlinson from Kentucky and others on our Reservation in Mole Lake,Wisconsin. Always love everything you do and would love to see you live. Yes I am Chippewa and my Indian name is "Ma-Coonce or Littlebear." Thanks for being you.
I have admired Lily Tomlin's work since the 1960s but felt moved to write after seeing "Frankie & Grace" series 1 and 2. It takes real talent to be both poignant and amusing but equally important is inspiring to me as an individual as I get older. You rock! Thank you sincerely!
