Popsugar interviews Rodriguez about her role as Jane in the TV series Jane The Vergin. Rodriguez talks about her character’s maturity and if she was similarly grounded and put together in real life.
Girl, you know I did. No, there’s no way I had my stuff together. I literally stop and I’m like, what would Jane do? Which is completely terrible, but I do, because of her patience and her understanding. I’m Puerto Rican, and we don’t own that! But it is really awesome to play such a grounded character. I’m a big fan of her.
Popsugar interviews Isaac about getting ready for his role as Abel in the film A Most Violent Year.
Everything was about presentation. Everything is a strategy for the goal. I remember I was just trying to figure out the character; I was like, “J.C., what’s he thinking here?” and he would say, “I don’t know, but his hair is going to be amazing!” And I was like, “Yeah, but what does he want?” and he was like, “I don’t know, but his suits are going to be so nice!” Finally he said, “Look, his suits have nothing to do with vanity. His suits are suits of armor.” Everything is about presentation, what is showing.
Popsugar interviews Kroll about his feelings on the final season of The League.
It’s a weird thing to have two shows that are incredibly fun to do in different ways. Letting things run their course is a good thing and continuing to do work that feels fun, inspiring, and fresh is great. I don’t take for granted that I get to do a show as fun and popular as The League. Everybody involved is so funny and talented that I can’t wait to see what they all do going forward. It’s been a really fun show, but it’s never a bad thing to leave a party a little early.
Popsugar interviews Charli XCX about album Sucker and its unusual sound.
For me, I never want to do the same thing twice with anything that I do, particularly with my music. So after my first record, True Romance, came out, I wanted to challenge myself and my audience and push it in a different direction. As a live performer, it’s always been kind of more rock and roll, so I wanted to do something that would complement that it all just kind of made sense for me to go that way. I was in Sweden making songs with some of my best friends, and that was what was coming out. I always like to record quickly, and that kind of music really suits powering through it and just making as many songs as possible. So it was cool. That’s kind of how it ended up there.
Popsugar interviews Wahlberg about losing weight for his role in the film The Gambler.
I felt miserable, like my character. Not a happy camper. I love food. I like exercising, but I like exercising when I’m eating properly, and having to exercise twice as hard as I’ve ever done without eating was pretty much a nightmare. But, you know, that’s what Rupert and those guys wanted to do, and they had a specific look in mind I was like, fine.
Popsugar interviews Hathaway about working future projects after her two films Les Misérables, Interstellar.
I’m just going to take the time between now and that off, and I’m just going to be at home, be with my man, be with my dogs, and we’re going to cook and we’re going to spend time with our friends. And I’m not going to chase down jobs. I’m just going to be married and take it easy. When I was young I was really afraid to take it easy because I thought the world would move on without me and I’d get lost and people would forget. I don’t know that I’ve earned the right to take it easy, but that’s what I want to do, so I’m doing it.
Popsugar interviews Brewer about her role in American Horror Story: Coven and if some of the scenes scared her.
I don’t want to say scariest. But challenging. I had a fear of being attacked by zombies in a car.
Popsugar interviews Tatum about his wife’s involvement with his film Magic Mike XXL.
Yeah, she’s there (on set). She’s helping. She’s definitely in the process and in the mix. I can’t do anything without getting her approval, so she finds that good in a way. She has to give it sort of the stamp of approval.
