And Then There Were Three

Estelle Getty is dead.

Sad but true. And here is something I just took 2 minutes out of my life to research: Interestingly, Estelle Getty played Bea Arthur's mother on Golden Girls, despite being a year younger than Arthur. Sort of like Angelina Jolie portraying Colin Farrell's mother in Alexander despite being a year younger than him.

And with that, folks, we shall kick off the citations of Angelina Jolie-Estelle Getty similarities. Who's got next?

they have so much in common

- first initial vowel, surname initial consonant

- didn't use a stage name

- both shared the screen with Dustin Hoffman (Tootsie for Estelle, Kung Fu Panda for Angelina)

- both had a steamy on-screen love scene with Antonio Banderas

Other than Estelle Getty, they were both born June 4.
