Kristen Wiig, Mya Taylor, and Other Bad-Ass Ladies Kill It as Hannibal Lecter

♫ She's a maneater. ♫

It was the 25th anniversary of Silence of the Lambs this past weekend, and to celebrate, W Magazine had Kristen Wiig, Tangerine‘s Mya Taylor, Jane Fonda, Greta Gerwig, and Carey Mulligan perform one of the the film’s most iconic monologues.

I enjoy all of their takes on the character, if only because it’s refreshing to see Dr. Lecter portrayed as something other than a tortured male asshole (gender parity in cannibalism is very important to me). Still, I think Wiig and Mulligan’s performances are my fava-rite.

Who would you cast in the part?
