Field’s Variety Free-For-All

Is Sally Field a secret gangsta rap enthusiast? Well, not so much. But today on Variety.com’s fun regular feature, Pushy Questions, the award-winning thesp (Emmy nominated this year for her ensemble turn on ABC’s Brothers and Sisters) reveals that one of the songs that means the most to her is Tupac Shakur‘s “Dear Mama.”

Why?

Because her son gave it to her, she tells the trade paper. Another interesting note in the breezy Q&A is the list of people she’d like Variety to poll next. On Field’s short list are some heavy-hitting politicos, one terrorist and one starlet turned tabloid regular: George W. Bush, Hillary Clinton, Lindsay Lohan, Osama bin Laden, and Nelson Mandela.
