VIDEO: Julianne Moore Comments on ‘The Hunger Games’ During Golden Globes Press Room Interview

Julianne Moore, our President Coin, is on a roll this awards season.  She has already won several accolades for her leading role in Still Alice and nabbed a coveted Oscar nomination this morning.

Last Sunday, Julianne won the Golden Globe award for Best Actress in a Motion Picture – Drama. As expected, Julianne stopped by the press room after winning to take questions.

At around the 2:10 mark, a reporter asks Julianne about “strong women” roles in movies today and what it was like to play President Coin in Mockingjay.  Julianne had a bit of a “light bulb” moment to remember since, as we know, the films wrapped several months ago.  But she says that it was she was “so excited to be a part of it,” and praises the franchise’s impact, Francis, Jennifer, Josh, and Liam.

Jennifer Lawrence Interviews Eddie Redmayne, Talks Wrapping The Hunger Games and More

Eddie Redmayne GGJennifer 16

Jennifer Lawrence recently interviewed fellow actor Eddie Redmayne for February’s issue of Interview magazine.  It’s becoming a common practice to have actors interview actors, and Jennifer seems like a perfect choice to ask someone else the questions.  Although the focus is on Eddie, the interview unsurprisingly comes off as a natural conversation with Jennifer offering up her own answers and stories.

Jennifer asked Eddie about his incredible work in the film The Theory of Everything, and also bonded with him over a mutual love of reality television and hatred for down time.

On The Real Housewives:

LAWRENCE: You watch Real Housewives, Eddie?

REDMAYNE: I’ve been a closet lover of faux-reality TV since The Hills. It’s bad.

LAWRENCE: I feel like I’m going to cry. We’re making a breakthrough. I went to Pump the other night to meet [restaurateur and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star] Lisa Vanderpump. I had her sign a bottle of vodka, and when she gave it to my friend who was with me at the Oscars, my friend said, “Jennifer, this is so much better than the Oscars!” [laughs] We took so many pictures with her. We were like, [referring to season four of the show] “Puerto Rico was a witch hunt. Brandi [Glanville] and Kyle [Richards] were so mean!”

And even though Jennifer is constantly busy, having a break still drives her crazy:

REDMAYNE: So you’re a lady of leisure now? Are you finally having a moment off?

LAWRENCE: I am and I’m miserable. I was so excited to get time off, and now I don’t know what to do with myself. What do you do when you have time off?

REDMAYNE: Someone asked me today what I’ve been doing, and I felt like I had to really make up something to justify my-

LAWRENCE: Yeah. I’m like, “I paint—I’m a painter!” [laughs]

Eddie also asked Jennifer about how fear drives her work on a film:

LAWRENCE: You seem very driven by fear.

REDMAYNE: Yeah.

LAWRENCE: Does that go away for you, or is that your fuel? Like, I’ll be afraid on the first day of work and then I feel it and then I’m driven by confidence. I don’t know if that’s tricking myself, because Silver Linings was the only time I felt scared the whole time.

REDMAYNE: Why was that, do you think?

LAWRENCE: Probably because I was out of my comfort zone. It was my first movie with David [O. Russell]. And he’s always shouting at you. [laughs] You’ll be doing a scene, and he’ll be like, “Say this! Do it the exact opposite way!” Or “Do the whole scene in slow motion!” It’s a way of pulling you away, which is why you’ll watch it and you won’t recognize yourself.

The conversation then took a bittersweet turn as Jennifer talked about wrapping The Hunger Games and missing Liam and Josh.

REDMAYNE: Are you guys finished with Hunger Games now?

LAWRENCE: I think we’re done with the press tour. I’ve got, like, one more thing to shoot for Hunger Games. We just have one scene to do for the end.

REDMAYNE: It’s over? Wowzer. That’s quite intense. That’s, like, several years of your life.

LAWRENCE: I know. I’m not happy about it at all.

REDMAYNE: Wait, can’t they write some more?

LAWRENCE: I know, right? I would totally do it. And now Liam [Hemsworth]’s doing a movie in Australia for two months. It’s the longest that the three of us have ever spent apart.

REDMAYNE: Are you like siblings?

LAWRENCE: Yeah. We were just on the plane, and Josh [Hutcherson] was eating something that I don’t like—salmon or something. I was eating my own snack and he kept eating my snack. I was going to share with him because I’m not an asshole, but then finally I was like, “I can’t eat your snack. So it’s not fair that you’re eating my snack!” Our security guard just started laughing at us. And we were like, “It’s been a lot of years!” [laughs]
