Well it turns out…
That's not the case.
While many assume she became a celebrity nanny to become closer to the stars, an insider says:
Excellent choice. We can totally see it.
Surprisingly, this is the first time Sally has starred in a Spielberg flick and no one is more excited about the opportunity than Steven himself. He raved:
"I'm excited to be working with Sally for the first time. I've admired her films, and she has always been my first choice to portray all the fragility and complexity that was Mary Todd Lincoln."
Agreed! She's going to perfect in the role!
Should we just hand her the Oscar now then? Yes? Probably?
