Fun The Salina Journal Tuesday, January 14,1986 Page 15 Streep became brunette for film The Far Side By ROBIN ADAMS SLOAN King Features Q. I was startled to read that Meryl Streep is now sporting dark locks for her new movie "Out of Africa." She's so long been associated with a blond look.-E.N. A. Apparently forget you that Gossip Streep, who portrays famed Danish writer Isak Dinesen in the film, has already portrayed another real-life brunette, Karen Silkwood, in the movie "Silkwood." What's more, many other actresses have gone the hair color root (pardon the pun) in the interest of their roles. Jane Fonda, Ellen Burstyn and Faye Dunaway have run the rainbow gamut without damaging their screen images. And during the golden era, such dye-hard blondes as Lana Turner, Betty Grable and Alice Faye have all had brunette tresses on screen while brunettes Barbara Stanwyck, Hedy Lamarr and Joan Bennett have gone blond on occasion. Q. Is actor Paul Sorvino still trying to become a bigtime opera star? Why Tank McNamara Streep Sorvino doesn't he give it up as an impossible dream? — A.R. A. Sorvino, who is a fine singer, has an addiction to opera. But he has no delusions about rivaling Placido Domingo anytime soon. Paul tells me he simply enjoys singing and listening to grand opera. That's why he's decided to take six months off after he completes work on the CBS-TV movie "Betrayed by Innocence" to spend his time studying opera — and opening his own theater in Teaneck, N.J. When you own the house, you can sing and act whenever you want. Q. How come Betsy Bloomingdale was one of the few Reagan California friends to get invited to the White House dinner for Prince Charles and Princess Di? It would seem the Reagans would have invited all of that tight little group. — P.W. A. The reason Betsy got invited is totally personal and the California contingent understood. It seems Nancy Reagan is playing cupid for the widow Betsy. The first lady is trying to fix up her best friend with the rich, rich, rich Ed Cox of Texas. Whenever Cox is around, Nancy makes sure Betsy is there, too. Q. You mentioned Betsy Bloomingdale in a recent column and we wondered how come the Reagans and others didn't drop her socially. That scandal involving her late husband Alfred and his mistress was pretty dreadful.-J.T. A. Both the president and his wife are extremely loyal to their old friends. Also, much of their goodwill also has to do with Betsy herself, who behaved with courage and dignity during the scandal. Friends also admire the fact that she can make private jokes about it. * * Ik- Got a question? Write to Robin Adams Sloan at King Features Syndicate, Inc., 235 E. 45th St., New York, N.Y. 10017.
