    She is a really good actress. Excellent in Hannah and Her Sisters, Parenthood and Little Man Tate. Did Law and Order for two years. You would think she could do roles on Broadway to earn enough to pay her rent. $5,300 is not excessive rent in New York.

    She is a two-time Oscar-winning actress.

    But Dianne Wiest is reportedly struggling to find enough work to afford her New York City apartment.

    Speaking to the New York Times, the 66-year-old explained how she finds it difficult to earn enough film and television roles to pay the rent on her home, believed to be in Manhattan's West 79th Street.

    'I have to move out of my apartment soon,' she admitted. A two-bed apartment at the actress's supposed apartment complex is currently advertised online at a rental price of $5,300 per month.

    Ms Wiest also revealed she never attempts to re-invent herself for a role. Instead, she leaves it to fate.

    'I think that if it’s meant to happen, it will happen - which is I guess a real sign of stupidity,' said Ms Wiest, who has two adopted daughters, Emily and Lily, who are both now in their twenties.

    Ms Wiest, who won her two Oscars for her performances in Hannah And Her Sisters and Bullets Over Broadway, was interviewed by the newspaper alongside actress Tonya Pinkins, 52.

    That is not her apartment but is the block where it is located.

    Wah, a person who hasn't had a real job in decades, if ever, can't afford to rent a $1.3M apartment.

    I found her kind of cute and sexy back in the day. Now? Not so much.

    Should have done a sitcom.... and what a has she earned lifetime?

    Poor business planning.

    The problem is doing Woody Allen movies. Woody doesn't pay much. The reason Woody can do a movie a year is because he brings his films in under budget and most actors and actresses work for scale when they do his movie. He has a real good track record of producing Academy Award winning roles. The awards should bring the winner more roles in mainstream movies with sizable paychecks.

    She also apparently "lived with" some wealthy famous agent to the stars for a long period. So if that's the case double no excuse.

    definitely poor management and business planning. she was always a bit too quirky to be a mainstream actress but she certainly could have made a living doing voiceovers. her mistake was not buying when she had the chance to or not moving out of manhattan.

    I can never understand how someone would live in an area where it costs that much to live unless you really needed to for your job.

    She should have starred in Edward Penishands instead of Edward Scissorhands.

    I would be shocked if she made over $75,000 on that movie.

    Nobody was being paid top dollar to star in that low-budget film.

    It's the curse of winning an Oscar for a Woody Allen film. Look at Mira Sorvino: won for Mighty Aphrodite and was never heard from again.

    Watch your ass, Cate Blanchett!

    5,300 is not excessive in New York? I'm sorry but I stopped reading at that point because I couldn't stop laughing. I thought LA had high rent, and there you get great weather.
