Director’s Wife Becomes A ‘Staar’

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Any actress can be famous but only Leslie Zemeckis can be a “Staar.”

That’s because “Staar” is a role that Zemeckis created herself for a series of one-woman burlesque shows.

Zemeckis – the wife of Forrest Gump director Robert Zemeckis – describes “Staar” as a throwback to the days when women were truly glamorous and says the sexy character is proud to be a mistress, not a wife, saying her philosophy towards marriage is, “You stay married to him, honey. I just want him for a few hours.”

Zemeckis has done three previous shows portraying “Staar” and the fourth opens in Los Angeles on April 11 and features old-time songs with titles like “Boobs,” and “It Ain’t the Meat, It’s the Motion.”

After that, she’s reaching for the stars. Zemeckis wants to take the show and the character to Broadway and says she and her hubby are working on a film script and a possible sitcom.
