Not going to lie, I haven’t really seen Farmiga in much… have heard mixed things about Bates Motel but should probably give it a try. The things I have seen her in however, such as Orphan and The Boy in the Striped Pajamas make her a long-standing lady crush of mine. Well, more like the kind of lady I imagine I will be somewhere down the line (imagine is the key word here). She fits so well into her roles of effortlessly cool and dedicated mother who does awesome things and is always looking amazing. Not sure how she is in real life but it can’t be too far from that… right?
-She is the second of seven children
-She is the daughter of Ukrainian immigrants and was raised in an insular Ukrainian community in New Jersey… SO insulated that she didn’t speak English until she was 6 years old!
-She wanted to become an ophthalmologist
-She’s been divorced once, married twice and has two kids with her second (and current) husband
-She considers her sister, actress Taissa Farmiga to be one of her best friends, despite the age difference
