In 1995, she was a member of the cast in the film A Walk in the Clouds as the first wife of Keanu Reeves, with whom she had nothing in common! But, she played the part so well!! Also, in the cast included Anthony Quinn & Giancarlo Giannini—no minor actors with whom to work! This was a beautiful film and can be watched by youth—no sex or violence! Scenery is magnificent and a good lesson in life.

Dear Lesley, I’m one of your faithful “older” readers who stays relatively young by reading your wonderful magazine. I have never felt a need to express my feelings about the magazine before because I found nothing to be upset about. However (don’t you just love that)…..I don’t know if it’s my imagination or not but this last issue (vol.16 #5) was such a disappointment. Not in the reading matter as much as the layout of many of the pages. It seemed too “busy” and the “feel” of the magazine was that it was less “classy”. I don’t know if you have a new art-director or what, but something is different and I hope the magazine goes back to it’s less trashy (YES, I do really feel that way) look. Thank you for my ranting. I look forward to the magazine each month.
I've been an avid reader of More for years.. it's one of the few intellegent magazines left for women but your June issue with its new graphics have destroyed it for me.. Are you going for readers from 10 to 15? It's hard on the eyes.. in your face.. not pleasant or fun"but like a comic book.. I read More for the articles .. you've dumbed down to the point I will not subcribe again.
Hello Lesley- I've been a More subscriber off and on over the years........don't have time to put my opinion on survey. Just a couple of things- I really have never seen a "Letters to the Editor" in More, am I right and why not?
The last few issues have been such disappointments as far as content- the articles are shallow and boring and using the layout style as seen on pages 66-61 and throughout various issues, is totally annoying visually and just cheap and unattractive. I can't put my finger on the tone of this magazine, but it seems you're just throwing information out there such as clothing suggestions that are silly and meaningless as you've chosen $540. shoes and $415. skirts! I don't even see good advertising pages. Gave subscription to my dauighter and she asked me to not renew. I do love Harper's Bazaar and would love to look forward to each issue of More once again. Please try to smooth it out, upgrade the content, add some truly in-depth and interesting articles/stories. Re: buying the expensive bra in France as few years ago- that was a goodie.
Hope to see some good changes before too long.
While I love More Magazine and can't wait to read it when it arrives, I have a comment about the pictures taken of the cover story woman. I noticed that every spread has the woman, this month Debra Messing shown with her legs wide open. Why is this? She had a pillow between her legs, but the pose is very suggestive and reminds me of Playboy or other girlie mags. I really thought we evolved past this. Debra Messing and the other women you profile are just as interesting and pretty with their legs closed.
After a few years of not reading More, I picked up the June issue at an airport newsstand. I was very attracted to the "busting our of her comfort zone" theme. One of the first things I read was your "Letter for Lesley." One of your comments stuck with me throughout the magazine. My question to you is, how old do you think you will be when you are too old to enjoy new experiences and acquiring new skills? --Jill Pfister
I have hesitated to write this email as I've never done this before. But after reading your June issue I feel that I must.
