Frances McDormand Takes On Rude Audience Member

Frances Bad Audience Memeber


Frances McDormand didn’t really need another reason to prove how rad she is, but, she gave us one anyway!

She’s been in this Broadway play called Good People, and she seems like the frontrunner to win best actress from the Tonys — and now she absolutely deserves it.

Why? Because a rude audience member answered a loud phone call during the climatic moments of the play, and Frances wasn’t having any of that shizz!

Check it:

The ring echoed from the balcony, drawing gasps from the audience, which included Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban. Incredibly, the woman with the phone took the call, saying, “Hello.” McDormand said, sternly, from the stage, “When you’re done, we’ll resume.” She continued when the rude playgoer stowed the phone.

Badass! We’re sure the rest of the audience was grateful that she put that person in their place, regardless of having to put the play on pause. We’d expect nothing less from the cop from Fargo.

Taking a stand is so fab, Frances! Keep up the great work in your play! Good luck with the Tonys!
