Oscar Winner Dianne Wiest: I’m Struggling to Pay My Rent | RedCowHills

Despite bringing new opportunities in the short-term, the sheen of an Oscar victory can sometimes only go so far. Just ask two-time winner Dianne Wiest. The 66-year-old actress, who begins previews Tuesday for off-Broadway production Rasheeda Speaking, told the New York Times she is facing money issues due to a lack of high-paying work. Wiest said of her struggle to cover her rent, I have to move out of my apartment soon. She earned Oscars for best supporting actress for 1986’s Hannah and Her Sisters and 1994’s Bullets Over Broadway, both directed by Woody Allen. But after that, she found she was only getting offered roles to play “a nice mom, and that’s it. That’s all that ever came, except in theater.”
