Margo Martindale

  • Highest Rated: 100% Blow the Man Down (2019)
  • Lowest Rated: 6% Mother's Day (2016)
  • Birthday: Jul 18, 1951
  • Birthplace: Jacksonville, Texas, USA
  • While some may not recognize Margo Martindale's name, many recognize her face. An actress onscreen from the early '90s, Martindale's list of memorable roles is long, and the character actress found a strong niche playing mothers (Million Dollar Baby) grandmothers (Hannah Montana: The Movie), and generally maternal figures (Practical Magic). Martindale even parodied her own typecasting, playing the mother of the title character in the biopic spoof Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story. Martindale would continue to act at a furious pace for years to come, appearing in movies like Secretariat, and on shows like Justified and A Gifted Man.

QUOTES FROM Margo Martindale CHARACTERS

Mattie Fae Aiken
And look at your boobs. Last time I saw you, you looked like a little boy.
Violet Weston
Isn't there the TV commercial where the lady says: "Where is the meat?"
Mattie Fae Aiken
Where is the meat?
Karen Weston
Where is the beef?
Violet Weston
(annoyed) Where's the meat? Where's the meat? Where's the meat? Meat, meat, where is the meat?
Nancy Rawling
You don't have to save the world, Todd. I believe that's already been done.
Robby Ray Stewart
You aren't up to your matchmakin' again, are you?
Ruby
Me? No, never.
Mattie Fae Aiken
Oh, maybe because your family didn't have...
Charles Aiken
You better not say anything about my family right now, I mean it! We just buried a man I loved very much. And whatever faults he may have had, he was a good, kind, decent man. And to hear you tearin' your son not even a day later dishonors Beverly's memory. We've been married thirty eight years and I would find anything. But if you can't find a generous place in your heart for your own son, we're not gonna make it to thirty nine!
Charles Aiken
Mattie Fae, we're gonna get in the car and go home. And if you say one more mean thing to that boy, I'm gonna kick your fat Irish ass into the highway.
Mattie Fae Aiken
What the hell did you just say to me?
Charles Aiken
Kids, go outside, would you please? I don't understand this meanness. I look at you and your sister and the way you talk to people and I don't understand it. I can't understand why folks can't be respectful to one another. I don't think there's any excuse for it. My family didn't treat each other that way.
