At a press conference marking the release of the drama by Joe Wright "Anna Karenina", which was shot on the basis of the novel by Leo Tolstoy, Keira Knightley talked about working on a role.
- Thank you for the fact that now we have a candidate for nomination for "Best Actress" at the Academy Awards.
"Wow, thank you! I accept the compliment. Thank you so much."
- And so it is. This is one of your best roles. "Anna Karenina" was shot and placed on the stage countless times. What attracted you to the project of Joe Wright?
"The first time I read the book when I was 19 years old. Actually, any actress would have said, “God, what an amazing character”. Once on the set of "Atonement" with Joe, we discussed the great female characters and talked about them. We have tried to list them, and Anna Karenina, of course, was among them. Joe has called me a couple of years ago, when I worked on a "Dangerous Method," and asked, "Anna Karenina?" and I said, “Yeah". He said that he will make a movie, if only Tom Stoppard will adapt the novel. 2 months later, Joe called me back and said that Tom is already working on the script. But the script, as such, was not. When we discussed the first version of it, it represented the usual story. It turned into a stylized theatrical performance just 10 weeks before the start of filming. Joe invited me to his office and said: "So, so. We will be filming in the theater. "If I did not know Joe well and worked with him before, his words brought me in horror. But I agreed to work with him on "Karenina," because I knew that he makes his projects interesting and original."
- Did you add anything to the image of Karenina from yourself, something that was not there in the book?
"No. I mean, in the book contains a lot of information that can be interpreted in different ways. Tolstoy wrote it on behalf of Karenina, the third-person judging and discussing her behavior. And, based on these discussions and descriptions that can be understand that there is not one point of view. When I read the novel in 19 years, I clearly remember that Karenina is innocent. I do not remember that condemned her for something. When I read the book before filming began at the age of 26, I suddenly felt the difference. I realized that Karenina is much darker. Playing Karenina, I tried to think about what function she performed in the book, and, on this basis, which function should be in the film. I'm sure that this moral ambiguity of my character, for me, as an actress, was an interesting aspect. "
- Do you have something in common with Anna Karenina and what sets you apart?
"I think she's a terrible character, and it is scary because we tried her, and feel, and throwing stones at her, and then asked: "And am I better than her?" And each answer is "No".
Nobody has the right to judge her, but we tried, and it's scary. Before us is a woman who was married at 18. Now she is 28. She has never experienced an orgasm. She's never been in love. Course, surprised herself the first time she feels the urge. Suddenly she feels all the charm of a romantic relationship, and she believes her love. Exclusive love. She does not see that there are many different forms of love, and that the "honeymoon" eventually reborn into something else, and that is its tragedy. When the period of "honeymoon" gradually begins to run out, she thinks that love disappears. She does not realize what is happening. I think that's understandable. We all know what a romantic relationship is, and we also know that they - just a small part of these relations. And it is absolutely clear that at some point in any of us can confuse love with true love. So the question I would say this: I both like and not like Anna Karenina".
- There are many novel by Leo Tolstoy. Which ones did you see? Maybe you took something from them?
"I decided not to watch any of the existing films. Being a teenager I saw the screen version with Greta Garbo and film in 2001, were shown on the BBC with a gorgeous English actress Helen McCrory. This was a long time ago, and I do not remember details."
- Did you like to work with Joe? Are not you afraid of things that he makes you to do?
"Yes, a little. He is obsessed with what he is doing. At 24 hours, seven days a week. He makes you think you're doing the most important thing in the world. Actually, it is not. But work with someone who demands from you 150%, and total immersion in the role - catching piece!”
- Was there anything that you like to put on and wear?
"Hell, no, well, I was not averse to leave diamonds. Would be great, but this will not failed."
- Can you say a few words about "Jack Ryan," how's it going?
"Yeah, "Jack Ryan” super Hollywood thriller, a sample of old school, entertaining and spectacular."
Leading the 85th ceremony of "Oscar" Seth MacFarlane in an interview with Collider talked about, never thought he would be cast as the show host, shared his memories of the past "Oscars" and described the status of the "Odd Man 2."
- Nominees are announced. Tell us, have you already begun to think of your strategy for the ceremony?
"Well, now that we know the nominees, we already have an idea with what we have to work, because until the announcement of the list, we can only guess who they hit. Today everything has changed. We have a list. We have target for jokes, and we can start to develop them. "
- Have you ever dreamed of becoming a master of ceremonies, and to have fun a lot?
"No. I could not imagine that this could happen. This was literally an absolute surprise. I did not know that my candidacy is discussed. I was not aware that I won."
- Leading to the "Oscar" is always under pressure. You have heeded the advice of some past hosts about how to deal with this pressure?
"I'm not mixed up in all this the most" do not want to, "I had a serious intention to call Billy Crystal, and inquired of his wise counsel. When did you last read a review of ceremony, which wrote:" What a great leader! " ? I think so wrote as a time when the lead was Billy Crystal. Actually, I believe that many of the top were good, you just gets involved in this case, knowing that no matter what, even if you arrange the greatest show in the world, you probably still smash to smithereens in the press. So, by and large, you can enjoy the process and do the best you can, knowing that the result will be the same. This is quite tough test, so I'm not going to think about it. Everything I need to worry, how to make the show as funny as possible".
- Do you plan to sing?
"We're still working on it. We are working on the scene of the opening ceremony. We still gloss. Course, the" Oscars "is the orchestra. Music has always been an important part of the ceremony. Yet known exactly how it will look like, but I do not think that "Oscar" is even possible without music".
- Share your memories about the "Oscar".
"All the ceremonies I have ever seen. But my mother - a big fan of" Oscar "and never misses a show. For some reason, one of the most lively and still images of the past" Oscars "is associated with Juliette Lewis and her hair of Brady. Do not know why. Simply sunk her image in my head tightly. Like many, I am a fan of the ceremony's. It is hard to find someone who is not just a fan at the screen, but who is a fan of actually. I love not only from the fact that participating in this show, I'm happy that I do it together with this team".
- Are there plans for the filming of "Odd Man 2"?
"There is nothing official yet. All those who took part in it, would like it, but the contracts are not signed yet. Yet very promising".
Ian McKellen in the interview with the resource Stuff talked about his role of wizard Gandalf, to which he returned in Peter Jackson's trilogy "The Hobbit."
Wizard Gandalf is generous and magnanimous by his nature, but when things take a serious turn, it is better not to argue with him. The same can be said of Sir Jena McKellen, who returned to the role of Gandalf in a new trilogy by Peter Jackson.
"I will never subscribe under the now fashionable items of the contract, which states that the actor may not speak negatively about the film, which is removed before the end of his days. This is ridiculous. This that means dying, I will not be able to deathbed to say that I did not like what I have done in a particular picture. It's nonsense. As for the new movie of the trilogy, I think they it is great".
Sir Ian, despite his 73 years, was one of the pioneers in terms of Internet use during the filming of "The Lord of the Rings." Then, in 2000, when Internet blogs were at an early stage of development, he was the only cast member who wrote about the movie online, and shared components, access to which is not exist in nature. He even put out new photos.
"In fact, I think I invented blogging, because I went on-line daily. Course, I did not come up with the word" blog ", but I send out regular reports from the area around the world with the approval and support of Peter Jackson, who is currently in his own blog. "
At the very beginning of the project "The Hobbit" Sir Ian has posted photos of Gandalf in stereo glasses at Tweeter. In fact it was the first behind-the-scenes shot.
"I remember that picture. I showed it to Peter and asked," Do you think we can put it? "He said," Oh, of course! Fans will be pleased! "But, of course, you should always get permission for such things."
For Sir Ian it was important to return of "The Hobbit" to the way it was Gandalf the Grey.
"Peter and I both prefer Gandalf the Grey, because it is more similar to the common man, in contrast to the advanced" White Warlord "who returned to save the world. So it was nice to meet again with Gandalf the Grey, whom we love."
As well as books from Tolkien, Jackson’s "Hobbit" is different in tone from "The Lord of the Rings."
"In" The Lord of the Rings "they are saving the world, all at stake. Hero dies. Frodo literally dying. The Hobbit "- an adventure novel, narrated in the first person by Tolkien. It is right there, make comments and jokes about heroes. And taking this lighter tone, Peter follows the beaten track of Tolkien, and the result is a movie of a different genre. "
At the stage of pre-production, talking with Peter Jackson, Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens, Sir Ian suggested that relations between Gandalf and Bilbo requires little background. He proposed to shoot a scene in which the magician acquainted with the baby and his mother Bilbo Belladonna Took. And this scene was filmed. The actor is not sure that it will go into the final version of the first part of "The Hobbit: Unexpected Journey", but his idea was taken seriously.
"We see Gandalf, watching this kid, who is full of energy and thirst for adventure. I even gave him a toy to play with the dragon, which I have been."
Sir Ian of the upcoming elections - to stay in the comfort zone and take a chance. His solution was to return to the role of Gandalf.
"In my life there are things that could have made me a little more power, balanced than I would like. I think, in order not to become too boring, it is necessary to have a wide range of friends. And certainly this range should include completely different age groups. "
"I have so many friends of the young age and I think that for someone of my age this is a good reminder that other people are just starting out, and you can pick up their enthusiasm and know that he is and will be in your life, if you did want it to. "
At a press conference, dedicated to the exit in the world of fiction drama "Cloud Atlas", actors Tom Hanks and Halle Berry, each of whom played in it in six different roles, present their work on the project. Excerpts from this conversation is below.
- Was this unusual experience fun?
Tom Hanks: Bring the word "fun" concepts such as "significant" and "amazing." Honestly, to eat pizza is rather fun. But for each of us to be part of the greatest repertory theater, where all were noble, kind and reserved, was an accomplishment. The process works, however sometimes it may be emotionally and physically exhausting, can not be underestimated in importance as a professional for us actors.
- Was it hard of fun to play so many different roles in a single film?
Tom Hanks: Without a doubt, the one and the other. It was great. We've always known who will play the next day. We knew that this would require. Sometimes you shoot as a guy who went to six different places: the material take off in Iceland, some - in the Sahara desert, some - in Los Angeles. It was the same thing but in a square or a cube. It was similar to the algorithm, because the concentration and the contribution of each of your six characters were totally different from each other. They all require a different energy and a different atmosphere that you felt around all day, and every time you feel differently because of costumes, makeup, manners, which is directly dependent on the suit.
Halle Berry: It was fun. Very! In general, I can not remember the last time so much fun on the court. Once, when I was in the image of Dr. Obed at the shooting was my daughter. She liked that I play different characters, and most of them came to her liking. I told her, "Today you will see the next mom character." And then, when I went to her in make-up, and said, "Hello, darling," she was shocked!
Tom Hanks: Oh, yes, she does not become the same. Since then she started smoking. Just think, a four years girl with a cigarette.
- To play characters of different nationalities and genders - a kind of freedom from discriminatory restrictions?
Halle Berry: If only I knew. There's a fine line. Personally, I enjoyed it very process every second. If it were not for this film, which has forced all of us to play all of these characters for the ideas of the story, no one would have ever given me the role of Germans of Jewish descent or Asian men. During all events, there was a sense of something special, and as artists we just soak up the atmosphere that reigns around. Every day, when I was in the image of Obed, and I wanted to have fun on my own experiences and understanding of the meaning of what is happening.
- Were there doubts that things will work out as it should?
Tom Hanks: The fears, no doubts. Tom, Andy and Lana all joined together in a "hot boiler" is not in one sitting for a year, maybe longer, before we saw the script. If you read it, you would see that just like in the movie, someone leaves the room in 1934, and comes into the room in 3000, and this is in rhythm, in one color and one emotional background. So my fear of dealing with other aspects: "I have six roles".
- Have you read the book before you received the script?
Halle Berry: I do not. I read the book just after we shot the film. When Andy and Lana called me for the first time, I asked, do I read the novel, and they told me that I only read their script. Honestly, it was enough to blow my brains out, so the book I did not even take. I just took everything they told me, and then later read the novel. And I must say, after I've played all of the characters and understand the concept, I received the book very much.
- What are some of your favorite movies.
Halle Berry: I love the movie "The Graduate." It is my favorite of all time.
Tom Hanks: I'll try anything from the modern, because just to name a movie that I saw 30 years ago. I think "Fargo" a great film, and he is in the list of my favorite paintings. "2001: A Space Odyssey," I saw probably 120 times. "The Best Years of Our Lives" - the greatest film ever made, and the fact that they did it in 1946, impresses me to this day.
Directed adventure drama "Life of Pi" was demonstrated in the framework of the New York Film Festival, Ang Lee's interview with the resource Collider talked about the film.
- Work on the film "The Life of Pi" you have devoted not only a few years of life, but part of your heart and soul. One of these days you have shown your work world. Your feelings?
"I am incredibly nervous. Saw the first film journalists, and I was in the big toes. Then I relaxed a bit, since the press conference held after the show, held in a very warm atmosphere, and the journalists asked good, friendly questions, though, and looked at the same seriously (laughs). Followed by a premiere, and after it, I truly "breathed", because the reaction of the audience convinced me that they liked the film. "
- During the work on the project was there a moment when you thought, "It will not work"?
"Only once in my career, I had a feeling that the project could not have taken place - it is with this film. This was before the pre-production stage. Before start shooting, I did a visualization of scenes that take place in the ocean. And at some point, the studio was hesitant because the risk was very high. Budget that we sounded, was much higher than that which they could approve, and they wanted to abandon the project. You see, it is a philosophical book, literary property, Batman is not like (laughs). Overall, I felt that I was about to freeze everything, and I, if we begin a matter, always bring it to fruition. I just went on their heels, and they had to give up".
- How much footage did you have to cut, mounting the first version of the film?
"About half an hour."
- Your film has an amazing visual style. Do not you feel sorry for these 30 minutes? Will they appear in the version on Blu-ray? Or was it "raw", unprocessed scene?
"We have four or five very good digital scenes with a tiger. Example, the scene in which Pi is faking tiger, and the tiger's reaction. I'm going to include them in the DVD-version. And there are just a very beautiful scene, which I would like to share with the audience, but that had to cut to the journey does not become tedious and I want to include them. "
- 3D of "Life of Pi" - fantastic. Please tell us about it.
"3D over debugged in animated films, as in the films with live actors, we are at its very roots. Course, starting to work, I was thrilled, excited. Probably, I have not all turned to the extent that could - because I'm new to this. But I dare say that it was a new cinematic medium experience. Hopefully, the audience does not compare 2D and 3D, because stereoscopy - a fairly new phenomenon, and not fair to compare it to 2D. Let's give a chance to 3D, wait for the improvement of equipment and system design, reduce cost, will give filmmakers the opportunity to gain experience. "
- Are you intend to use stereoscopy at your next projects? Or is it all depend on the story?
"It all depends on the budget. I think now I would prefer 3D. Also because you need to do to use a digital camera, and this and everything is underway. I'm still confused by the figure, since I'm used to the film. But a new language, so to speak. This is very exciting process - to learn and explore new tools. If the budget is modest, I'll take the film to the normal film, but if funds allow, I think I will choose 3D ".
- You mentioned that you will need another 2 weeks to submit the final version of the film company Fox. That was undone by the New York Film Festival?
"90 visual effects shots, which are still being processed at the final stages. Everything is almost ready. I think most people are unlikely to have caught the difference, but I know that these images may be better. We are also finalizing the sound and color, all sorts of technical nuances. I'm sure that the movie saw in New York, was very presentable. Just that I need to get my work was perfect, and for that I have two weeks. "
- You are a very versatile director. Remained a genre in which you yourself have not tried, but would very much like?
"No, I do not have a list. (Laughs) Any material that interested me, appeals to a particular genre, or a combination thereof. This occurs naturally, and I'm ready for what I have to learn something new. I studied law, and sometimes breaking some of them. Necessarily need to know the rules, otherwise you will not have the means of communication with the audience. But to this communication was interesting, some foundations have to break. I do not choose genres as an element, the material itself - the element and is the basis of this, I decide what genre I need. "
Steven Spielberg in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter talked about why he was nervous on the set, the relationship with the parents, that he was teased as a child and how he revenged.
About fear at work.
"It's not really fear most - waiting for the unknown. Did you know that the unknown can cause food poisoning? I feel some degree of anxiety associated with the fact that I can not write the script for my own life as well as my films. For me there is no better way to get rid of fear, how to tell a story and they infect others. Though once the film is ready, my fears immediately returned. "
"With me and my three sisters, my mother applied more like an older sister, not the mother. She never told us" no. " She was a Peter Pan. She refused to grow up. As a child, I miss my father (my parents separated) while we were together as a family, he was simply incredible workaholic and he worked all the time. "
About how he was teased as a child.
"In those years I was a nerd. Outsider. Looked like a child playing the clarinet in any orchestra. We are Jews and have lived in a non-Jewish neighborhood, and our neighbors were thrown after us:" Spielberg - dirty Jews". Once night I smeared peanut butter their windows. I hope that my period of limitation can not be held responsible for the vandalism. "
Denial of Judaism.
"I denied it for a long time - I was ashamed of my religion because I was teased. I've often said that my name is of German origin, but not Jewish. I'm sure my grandfather and my grandmother roll over in their graves right now as I say these words. When I was 16, I discovered the film, I found myself making way ... I found that I could do something good. My children's status of "outsider" has influenced many of my films. "
How Spielberg thought that no one will see "Schindler's List."
"I did everything that I needed to tell the story the way I wanted it, with all candor, as I could, and did not expect that it will bring any profit."
About the fact that he is no longer interested in taking action movies.
"I know that I could remove the action, even in a dream at this stage of my career. But now the genre does not appeal to me anymore."
That inspired him to film "Lincoln."
"President Lincoln was the father of the nation in need of healing. And in a sense, the movies that I made recently, carry the echo of positive communication that we enjoy with my father, 20, 25 years."
Starring in the TV series "The Walking Dead" Andrew Lincoln and Sarah Wayne Callis in an interview with Collider talked about what should expect fans of the series from the third season. WARNING, spoilers!
- What does it happen between your characters in the third season?
Andrew Lincoln: We are in the worse situation. I think the events at the end of the second season resulted in permanent estrangement between Lori and Rick. Of course, they are trying to improve relations for the sake of unity in the group and for themselves in the first few episodes. They try to overcome this alienation between them.
Sarah Wayne Callis: I do not think that the current situation, they would be able to find a way, if not the end of the world, and not the fact that all those whom they knew had died. This fact can not be overstated. Now Shane is not there, and Rick and Lori grew up together, they know each other from school. If it was not end of the world, each of them would have gone their way - too much pain and irreparable loss. But in this situation, you feel: "I can not bring myself to leave. I can not bring myself to look in his eyes. I do not know when it will end”.
Andrew Lincoln: We made a conscious decision to avoid eye contact, because every time we see each other's eyes, we experience a sense of shame and guilt for what happened.
Sarah Wayne Callis: The problems started not because I hinted to him to be careful, and he killed Shane. I think we both understood, it will all end. In a sense, it was a great success. I warned my husband that someone would try to kill him, and as a result, won the "right" guy. But then Rick tells me that he wanted Shane to die, and I cringe instead to run to him with open arms and comfort him. This is one of the reasons I like it how the writers have presented their marriage. This couple does not go mad because his wife was having an affair, and her husband killed her lover. It would have been trivial. They are heartbroken, because Lori fears, killing Shane, Rick will like him. He is also necessary that at this point she said: "You're a good man. I forgive you and I love you." Instead, she recoils from him.
- What, in your opinion, is the strength of the series "The Walking Dead"? Maybe, in its singularity, unlike the traditional TV show?
Andrew Lincoln: I do not know. I was attracted to the role because Rick goes to extraordinary journey full of dangers. But in fact, the trick is in all acting faces, not only Rick. We film the show for three years with one team, and all these people are great. Every one of them - a fan of the show, it is expensive. They are eager to tell this story through a cool incredibly complex, but there are real characters.
Sarah Wayne Callis: I recently watched the ceremony Emmy, where everyone was talking about the Golden Age of Television. The fact that the serial drama on cable gave us the opportunity to see not just the same stories that are slightly different from each other with the words and costume characters. I'm thinking of something like "Breaking Bad" or "Mad Men", in which during the season we watch the huge changes in the lives of the characters. What is happening on TV right now, due to the confidence and ability to offer the audience storytellers long history and believe that the audience will watch its development.
- In your opinion, Laurie pretends to support Rick or she actually believes his actions correct?
Sarah Wayne Callis: What Lori certain for sure is that her husband - a man whom she can safely follow. Regardless of the relationship between them, she recognizes a leader in him.
Andrew Lincoln: His story mesmerized me this year.
Sarah Wayne Callis: Carl is not easy. He suffered more than the rest of the rift between Rick and Lori. Children are able to adapt to different situations but parents' divorce or death of one of them. I think nothing of what had happened - the murder of Shane when he turned into a zombie, a sense of responsibility for the death of Dale (Jeffrey Demanov), death of Sophia (Madison Linz) in front of him - was not as heavy as parents problems. His journey in this season will be difficult. Will Rick forgive Laurie whether Lori forgive Rick - these are the main issues. Chandler does his or her part perfectly, the nuances in his game are startling.
Andrew Lincoln: Watch the boy - he is a terrific actor! I'm sure he is 48 years!
- How do you think the relationship between Rick and Lori - this is something that helps everyone else stay sober thoughts?
Sarah Wayne Callis: I like that these two love each other at the cellular level. Lori does not know who she was in this life without Rick. Everything they do, they do in the first place for one another. I tried very hard to save the life of Herschel (Scott Wilson), because I do not want to think about what will happen to Rick. Rick was a prison, and I do not have to worry about the baby. This is a unique gift exchange between two wizards. "I can not look at you. I can not talk to you. I'm so ashamed that my heart aches. But I'm going to kill myself, just to make sure that you will be alright."
- In the first two seasons, we have seen the differences in worldviews of Shane and Rick. What is similar and different perspectives on life of the Commandant and Rick?
Andy Lincoln: They will shoot us if we answer this question. Last season, the enemy was within the group, and now the enemy is outside. Of course, this is for the benefit of history, and it's great that we have a space for the narration.
Sarah Wayne Callis: For us it was worse, in any case, since we left the farm of Herschel. In the first two seasons, we watched the confrontation between Rick and Shane, for those whose philosophy is to win, and who of the two will prevail. In a sense, the Commandant develops a similar situation. We have two leaders who have implemented their policies and values.
- How difficult was it to shoot the first episode, in which no one said a word?
Andrew Lincoln: I think that our world has become quieter, and it's scary. By necessity we have become a telepathic group. This family - a strong team, because we have to be a single organism, or we will die or give up. Family for Rick equally his weakest and strongest place.
Sarah Wayne Callis: I think that this method brings us back to the pilot. The pilot episode was incredibly quiet. The danger in this show, as we have, is that you get lost among murderers and zombies. And scenes and moments full of poignant silence - insanely scary. This is incredibly cool.
The star of the comedy "Ted" Mila Kunis in an interview with Esquire magazine, spoke about how being a public person, manages to keep her private life away from prying eyes. Excerpts from the conversation read below.
- Do you think yourself funny?
"I think so happened that I was doing funny things, but I am not funny. I just know how to sell a joke. There are people who naturally exude around humor and always joking, but there are those who know how properly to convey joke. For 20 years I have been doing that, I have a wealth of experience. "
- And how did you learn to tell jokes?
"Practice. Eight years on TV show. There's a lot you can learn."
- Your family emigrated to the U.S. from Ukraine when you were 8 years old. In the four years you've lived seven in two-bedroom apartment, and your parents were taken to any work. This is an unusual story of the life of a young Hollywood star. Who would hold, not to talk about it?
"I have discussed this many times. Unless you have unearthed something new ..."
- Are you tired of this topic? Do you find it not interesting?
"I find it incredibly interesting, but I want you to Fairfax walked around and talked to any of its residents. Each of them has a similar story. My immigrant story turned into something bigger than it actually is."
- Do you think it is slightly fetish?
"Definitely. I do not have anything to do with this story, and always feel terrible when discussing it, because it's my parents talk about it all. They have gone through this hell. I did nothing. This is the merit of my parents, because they gave me a sense of security. I was 8 years old, I did not take any decision and did not bear any responsibility. "
- But you do have a memory?
"Wait a minute. I do not know what percentage of those memories - my own, and which ones I have created in my mind by listening to the stories of my family."
- In an interview, when you talk about your career, you use the definitions that people involved with you one thing, rarely used, fear, devotion, simplicity.
"What I do and who I am - different things. And always will be. What happens to people when they lose their understanding of who they are, and become either of those, who want to be in either of those, what they are forced to be. But in both cases, these people stop being themselves. in the film industry a lot of what you imagine yourself depends on the opinion of critics, producers, and actors. People are starting to believe in all that they say, and are the ones who want to see their. I think I agree with two of my conscious life. I like what I do. I can not imagine a different kind of activity".
- According to you, whether it may come a time when you can not feel at ease?
"You mean to go quietly into the groceries? I can not leave the house without being photographed, but it does not mean that at 10 pm I have no opportunity to go to Ralphs supermarket".
- Perhaps you are waiting for the question of personal life?
"Not from the magazine Esquire".
- You're right, we do not care. Have you ever lived in New York?
"From time to time. I like living in New York for two or three months, and then I run away. I like the idea of New York, where all the focus on yourself, then going back and scatter in all directions. I like that people do not pry into your affairs. You meet, but each somewhere in a hurry. Nobody works from nine am to five pm. In New York for two years, I rented an apartment with a roof. It peace and quiet. It is next to the river. This is amazing. We could drink a glass of wine on my roof!"
- Immediately after the interview, you will forget about this proposal ...
"Not at all. I will give you my email address. Write to me."
In an interview with ComingSoon resource Chris Hemsworth told of how being shot in a comics "Thor 2: Dark World."
On working with director Alan Taylor.
"I like the way that Alan brings naturalness to the fantastic world of "Game of Thrones" and I think “Thor 2" it may benefit. Matter how mysterious or sci-fi film will be released, it builds on the reality. This the whole point. Working with Alan, you see that he does not want Thor be aggressive. He wants to make him to look more real".
On the work on the image of Thor.
"Now I read and reread the script numerous times. I work with a guy who, in addition to putting my voice, also deals with various other things. We divide the script into sections and analyzed in details by the characters, and we're trying to figure out what a person or character or last character is doing as it appears to us, why he said so, and not in another. This analysis leads to a heap of questions about the hero, and that's cool. And so we are working on the film, so that after it is sometimes hard to switch to something else. "

- What was it like to work again with Tim Burton?
"Oh, it was amazing, all the time I am trying to find any more adjectives to describe this truly special experience working with Tim. He's one of my favorite people in the world, so our collaboration I never regarded as a job though, it is always very rewarding. He is not like other directors. Tim - a unique and very expressive. We do not have to negotiate the proposal through. Even if he is silent, you always feel that you deserve his trust.
If you want to discuss something, you can do it. But you do not need. Everything is telepathically. Despite all that gloom, which is associated with Burton in all his films so much heart. Working on" Ed Wood " I was crying over the "Frankenweenie" - cried over "Edward Scissorhands," I was crying all the time. His films have always a lot of purity, chastity, and no matter what it looks like is not always normal. Elsa, the heroine, I voiced for "Frankenweenie," a bit like Lydia from "Beetlejuice." The reason that Lydia could see ghosts, was the fact that she was young and did not look like her parents. So when kids come up to me and asked, "Are you the one girl from "Beetlejuice"? "- I have a wonderful and warm feeling. The fact that I have been associated with these films, makes me happy!"
- How did you like the process of scoring?
"For me, to be part of something so important to Tim, and what I've heard for 25 years, it was a great honor. He's the one I really, really love. He - especially for me, a person, who laid the start of my career, in the broad sense of the word. Regarding the process scoring, it was a very nice job, not very long ago that I worked from the time of "The Simpsons" and "Dr. Katz."
"If Tim decided to make this movie without me, I would still crook try to get into it, just to hang out. Truth is, I do not consider it a job. Course, when you do your thing, you work, but it is is not, "Oh God, when will be a break?" You can do it forever. And he's the same guy I met 25 years ago. I get from him the same directions as received on the set of "Beetlejuice." Elsa - a younger version of Lydia, in a sense, and I'm stuck in this feeling. Tim sends signals to all of us, and we accept them. This is a magic telepathy. "
- What cartoon story made you think about?
"How technology can be used for good. Message given through science, fine. Many people have a very close relationship with their pets. So it was with me, and the loss has left a very deep impression."
- Do you remember your first impressions of working with Tim Burton on "Beetlejuice"?
"I remember very well the first time we met. I had black hair. I chat with someone in the waiting room of movies, music. After 30 minutes, I asked," Do you know where Tim Burton holds audition because, maybe I went to the wrong house?" And my companion replied," Oh, that's me. "I could not imagine that the director can be so cool in terms of communication. All other directors I've worked with have been very strict".
- You mostly always gravitated to the dark films and characters, and never tried to play a role that would turn you into a sex symbol in Hollywood. Why?
"It's an interesting question, because even on the set of "Beetlejuice" I was still clumsy child under really puberty. Role of Lydia - one of my favorites, because I really like her. It allowed me to get to the project "Lethal drive", but I literally had to fight for the role of Veronica, because I did not look so attractive to claim to be a popular girl. I think I was incredibly lucky that all the directors with whom I worked, did not try to make me into sex-girl".
"I watched "The First Wives Club" and one of the characters said the following: "For women actresses in Hollywood has three roles - tiptoe, District Attorney and Miss Daisy" and I thought, “Oh my God, this is not funny!" what gave me Tim, was somewhere in between. I remember when I was offered the role of a young cop chasing a serial killer, but I do not see myself in this manner. I had a few chances to try to go this route, but I did not feel it's mine. I practiced what I was wondering. I was incredibly lucky that I have the chance, especially in the 90's. "
