Marion Cotillard, Kristen Stewart, And Other Stars Pose “Unscripted” For W Magazine
The W Magazine made a great portfolio of 33 movie stars posing “up close and unscripted”. Many of them tell about their first acting experience or the first movie they saw. Some of them pose in their casual wear while others sport designer pieces. Some went makeup-free like Marion Cotillard and Naomi Watts. We chose some of their quotes that are quite interesting that were put under their photos. You can see more on W Magazine‘s website.
Movie Stars Pose “Unscripted” for W Magazine
I have a crush on Harry Dean Stanton in Paris, Texas. He was my type of guy, especially when I was a kid. I was totally in love with him. I wanted to go anywhere with Harry Dean Stanton: Texas, Paris, whatever, wherever.
Everyone asks about the nude scenes in On the Road, but I also had to dance, and dancing is harder than being naked. My character, Marylou, is so exuberant, and I had five minutes to do something that showed she was sort of like the craziest motherfucker around. In the book, it says, ‘Dean takes Marylou and they do a love dance and no one can take their eyes off them.’ It’s one sentence. And I was mad-intimidated by it. We did the dance four times to the song ‘Salt Peanuts.’ By the end, I was as red as a fire truck. I was holding onto Garrett [Hedlund] because I was going to fall over. I almost passed out every single time.
The first part I played was in the Nativity play at school. I auditioned for an angel and didn’t get it. I auditioned for Mary and didn’t get it. So I made up the character of the sheep who sat next to the baby Jesus. I wore a calico head thing that my mom made, and I bleated through the whole thing and got my first laugh. And that was it—I was hooked. That became a metaphor for my whole career: Every time I’ve thought, Oh, I should be Mary, I somehow go and find something offbeat and different.
I wouldn’t say I’m drawn to controversy, but I try not to let the fear of controversy get in the way of my decisions. I wasn’t sure I was the right person to play Broomhilda, a slave, in Django. The thing I learned most was the enormous strength it would take any human being to survive the circumstances of slavery, because I barely survived it for pretend. I kept telling Quentin [Tarantino], ‘I’m going to send you my extra therapy bills.’ I was up to twice a week on the phone with my shrink.
When I did Catch Me If You Can, in 2002, I had a really big crush on Leonardo DiCaprio. I had fixated on him in Growing Pains and in Titanic. I was like, ‘Oh, my gosh, if I ever work with Leo, it will be wonderful.’ And then, there I was, with pigtails—looking not at all like Gisele, whom he was dating at the time. I figured my chances were pretty slim, so I just focused on the work.
Male stars like Matthew McConaughey, Richard Gere, Denzel Washington, Ben Affleck, Jack Black, and others also posed for the magazine and shared about their acting experiences and movies.
The dark roles take a piece of you. To pretend something so intensely is nothing to take lightly. Your emotions manifest physically. While I’m doing the character, it’s all fine. Afterward, it takes my memory. I’m not, for instance, interested in playing Charles Manson. It seems like every two or three years they want to remake the Manson story: Manson as an old man; Manson in jail; Manson as a young, handsome teenager. I’m not for censorship, but I don’t want to be a part of Manson.
The movie that influenced me the most when I was a kid was The Elephant Man. I saw it when I was 12, and it had a huge impact on me. I watched it again and again, and I got addicted to that feeling. Based on the sadness that the movie evoked, I said, ‘That’s what I want to do with my life—make people feel sad.’ [Laughs.]
I was 19 when I made Taps, and my character loved weapons. In one scene, I was firing a machine gun out a window, and I looked down and there was a guy shooting back at me. This was my first experience with stunts—and an expert marksman was aiming at me! I didn’t want to look like I was dumb, but between takes I pulled the guy aside and said, ‘Have you done this before? You’re not going to shoot me, are you?’ I was terrified that my first big part would be my last.
