Celebrities Who Knit?
I'm not into Hollyweird at all! But I saw on a lead-in to Knitty Gritty that Justine Bateman is addicted to knitting........like most of us here! I always liked her, wish she would do more stuff. I still enjoy her on reruns of Family Ties.

I could tell that Goldie Hawn was a knitter when I saw her doing it on Foul Play. I love to scrutinize knitters on TV or movies and see whether they really ARE knitters.

Anyone else know of any celebrity knitters????????

I just purchased a special LIFE magazine--"Remembering Grace: 25 Years Later." There's a picture in there of Grace Kelly knitting while someone worked on styling her hair (on the set of The Swan).

I Googled 'Celebrities that knit' and got this list: List of celebrity knitters (this list is by no means all inclusive): Julia Roberts, Madonna, Iman, Hilary Swank, Cameron Diaz, Daryl Hannah, Goldie Hawn, Eartha Kitt, Winona Ryder, Julianne Moore, Rose McGowan, Courtney Thorne-Smith, Kate Moss, Madeline Albright, Vanna White, Megan Mullaly, Sarah Jessica Parker, Joanne Woodward, Bob Mackie, Stu Bloomberg, Rosie Grier.

I'm sure that there are more, knitting is very much in style right now.

I"m betting that Joan Cusak knit? She was knitting in the movie Raising Helen and she looked like she knew what she was doing.

I read some funny stuff from Tracey Ulmann in the book Knit 2 Together. Gotta get that book.

I think Katie ummm the gal who married Tom knits...

Ok so these are not current movie stars but...

Bette Davis used to knit a lot

ohh and then on the Joan Crawford bio they said that she would drive Norma Shearer crazy with the clicking of her knitting needles on the set of The Women

Here is a flickr account with a lot of the older stars knitting...
