It seems like just yesterday that Eminem was stepping up to receive an Oscar for the amazing film, 8 Mile, but that was actually 17 years ago.
Like legit, I’m not joking.
This film is now old enough to legally drive, and I feel about 100 years old right now.
Stephanie Smith (Kim Basinger) – THEN
Stephanie Smith is the stereotypical white trash mum – she’s an alcoholic with a terrible taste in men, who lives in a trailer with no job and ten tonne of welfare checks. Safe to say, she’s not the best role model in the entire film. However, she does come into a big win at bingo at the end of the film, which is enough to pay her rent and seemingly reconnect with Jimmy.
