Although the critics panned it, I love the film and all the various actors including Sarah Jane Steele (born July 24, 1988) who plays Bernice, Sandler's awkward teen-aged daughter.
Sarah beat out thousands of young hopeful females to win the role. She was fabulous as the lovable teen dealing with her mother's constant lack of approval due to her weight, frizzy curly hair and overall appearance.
Her mother, Deborah, played by Tea Leoni was blonde, beautiful, athletic and reed thin. She also had long, bone straight tresses, which were always perfectly coiffed.
Much to her mother's disappointment Bernie physically and emotionally takes after her father, John who has bushy natural curls, full eyebrows and a healthy weight. Sarah Steele was spectacular in the role. Every time I see the movie I want to reach through the screen and give her a hug.
Showcasing Her Natural Curls On The Good Wife
After Spanglish I lost track of Sarah until a recent episode of "The Good Wife" where she plays the outspoken daughter of Eli Gold (Alan Cumming). It's been seven years since Sarah's turn as Bernice and it's amazing to see her transformation.
Even better, she's rocking her natural curls for her role as Gold's daughter, who tells it like it is.
Unfortunately Sarah has had limited on-screen time on The Good Wife, but hopefully the amazing producers, writers and directors of the show will realize they have a talented young actress they can utilize to spice up future episodes.
As Gold's daughter Sarah speaks her mind even though it obviously annoys and frustrates her normally unflappable father.
Sarah looks beautiful and it's very exciting to see her showcase her long brunette natural ringlets and spirals in her guest role on Wife.
