But as the mother of a teenage son (played by Eric Stoltz) with a vicious physical deformity in 1985's\u00a0Mask, You definitely don't want to be on this character bad\u00a0side in a fight. Throughout the film, Rusty stands up to\u00a0various authority figures who want her son to be treated like a freak. She faces (by herself) doctors, teachers, and other bullies. She loves and defends her son endlessly, so much to the point in which he doesn\u2019t ever need his own defense mechanisms; he\u2019s free to be himself. https:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?vC1kZTfHldfY 2.)\u00a0Rosemary Woodhouse, played by Mia Farrow (1968) Novelist Ira Levin nailed the feel\u00a0of the fears, insecurities and doubts of a woman's first pregnancy in the source novel for this disturbing horror film by Roman Polanski, and Mia Farrow is genius\u00a0as the increasingly terrified young soon-to-be-mother.
