Date of birth[edit]

I just corrected her DOB from Sept 11, 1961 to Sept 11, 1963, which is what was listed in imdb. Is there a controversy about her DOB? Or is this just a mistake? --Rogerd 00:21, 10 October 2005 (UTC)

After looking into it, it does say on quite a few sites that she graduated from high school in 1979. Also on ussearch.com there is a Virginia Madsen residing in Los Angeles, CA, age 44. --Fallout boy 08:59, 1 March 2006 (UTC)

Brother's heterochromic status -- who give a fuck?[edit]

Why is the fact that her brother isn't "heterochromic" in here? That seems like it was added by the Heterochromic Society of America to raise awareness even of people who DONT have the condition.

No Sources[edit]

This article doesn't cite sources, so I added the little "nou sorces" template.

fire, hot, burn?[edit]

Is this sentence really needed? It's interesting but it is necessary in the bio of Virginia Madsen? Discuss?

sideways cap[edit]

I know we all like to avoid copyvios, but isn't making a modern movie capture look like a crappy scan of a 1920s film a little excessive? Should we convert all Wikipedia movie screenshots into blurry black and white? 69.137.223.153 18:23, 10 March 2007 (UTC)

I don't see why we can't just get an image of her from one of her movies or award shows or something, then just either link it directly to the copyright owner or tag it with the appropriate copyright information; for example, in the page dedicated to the image itself, name the photographer, publisher, year, etc.... no one likes to see a goofy silhouette of a generic woman head when they're trying to find out just who that actor/-ress was.
...or, if you like: do it the brutal way: name me as the copyright owner, and they can sue me... let them sue me for the whole $26 in my bank account lol. tangent: fuck copyrights. -AeturnalNarcosis 6.Sep.2007 —Preceding unsigned comment added by AeturnalNarcosis (talkcontribs) 06:24, 6 September 2007 (UTC)

Vandalism[edit]

The last picture, of her and Paul Giamatti in "Sideways", has been replaced by a low-resolution South Korean flag. I don't know how to fix this problem or to report it as vandalism. CielProfond 2007-04-21, 23:14 EDT.

caught a glimpse[edit]

Nifty phrasing :-) I actually went ahead and checked in out on the history page - the wording IS accidental, but still on the spot! :-) 85.227.226.235 (talk) 18:36, 5 January 2008 (UTC)
