Gaining fame in the 1980s, Angelyne was one of the very few, if not the only one at that time, to be famous for being well, famous. Yep, you read that right. There existed, or rather exists, a famous woman for her popularity among the masses.
Often seen around the streets of LA on billboards, the Barbie-like blonde never failed to grasp people’s attention. Her life was always a problem despite her fame as the pink-Corvette-riding mystery very successfully kept her past and ladder to success a secret from the public.
With Peacock releasing a show about her, we can expect some clarity on Angelyne’s life.
The trailer gives the viewers a tiny peek into the life of Angelyne; a young, blonde woman who is always seen sporting pink dresses.
While her life may seem all flowers and rainbows, this image is far from the reality of her life. Angelyne hides some deep secrets and masks a dark past to live her life in serenity.
Though, the reminders of what she has faced or been through make it difficult for her to sail through life peacefully.
As portrayed by Emmy Rossum, LA’s billboard queen is seen with a funky hairdo, bold makeup, and bright, flashy outfits, usually rose-hued.
When asked about why she chose to work on this project; Emmy Rossum said how Angelyne had managed to leave a mark on her from the very first time she saw her billboard. She further explained how different she thought herself from Angelyne.
She went on to add how Angelyne was this empowered woman adored by the whole of LA.
On being asked about her thoughts on Angelyne, the actress talked about the paradox that she (Angelyne) was so popular yet with such little information about her and how this drew her in.
Same thoughts Emmy, same thoughts. Pretty sure this is what everybody who knows of Angelyne or has seen the trailer thinks.
When asked about her take on Angelyne’s fame much before social media platforms took over; Emmy elaborated upon how strong Angelyne was. Like a mix of an old-Hollywood throwback, Marilyn Monroe, Judy Holliday, and part 80’s-punk-rock Barbie doll, Angelyne took the entirety of LA by a storm. One with pink fairy dust, to be precise.
Emmy concluded the interview with how Angelyne faced a gazillion challenges to be able to live her larger-than-life type of fairy-tale.
