Beautiful Creatures. Interview with Emmy Rossum

Interview

Emmy Rossum (Beautiful Creatures)- Did you enjoy collaborating with Richard LaGravenese?

- Yeah, he is incredibly smart, talented and knows well all the cinema of 1920s, 1950s, 1960s, 1970s with all their films. His movie references were really specific and fun for me, he is a brilliant writer, though he is not married to the script. Richard let us improvise a little to experiment with jokes for the characters and make us trying something new.

- In Beautiful Creatures he opted for more natural look. Is it better?

- I think, it depends on the kind of the movie you are making. I don’t mind working with the special effects, I like things that can go beyond my imagination, but I prefer to start with a story, and here I liked the story and the character, so this was fun. That is a good thing here, because you would not have to imagine too much, but can actually see a lot of what is happening with the main heroes of Beautiful Creatures.

- What was the hardest scene to shoot for you?

- The hardest was the scene with the spinning room, because it was actually spinning, there was wind and the Gimbal was used, which started shaking back and forth, and I was struck to the pole around my waist after the dress. While also wearing high heels, I was trying to act. There is a lot going on at once, and we were taking sea sickness medication, because the filming of this was lasting for a while.

- Was Beautiful Creatures different from Poseidon in terms of physical challenges?

- That was way worse than Beautiful Creatures! We were underwater for like 6 months, and then it was horrible.

- Would you be interested in seeing the film becoming a longer series like The Twilight or you are happy with just one-time role in this franchise?

- Well, I do that on my show Shameless with keep coming back to the character, and sometimes it is good to have the character going. I have read all the released books following the Beautiful Creatures story, and my character is in all of them, so it would be fun to keep exploring her, and I would say «Yes!».

- Why didn’t you sing something for the Beautiful Creatures soundtrack?

- I wasn’t asked to! [Laughs]. I would have agreed, but, I think, the soundtrack is amazing, and I really like it. One time we thought, that Ridley is a Serena, maybe when she is Spellcasting, there is some kind of music involved and singing. Although it came hooky as we did it with Beautiful Creatures, not really too natural about this character who is much more about the dominance and power, while my voice is kind of ethereal, angelic, and not like a witch I had to sound like.

- How strict are you in selecting new scripts for yourself?

- I’m very picky! My agent reads a lot of them, I’m always looking for a challenge, then a world, which I find appealing, and characters I see Multidimensional, what I can experiment with, and also a good Director who, I think, is interesting to collaborate with.

- Would you like to portray a Russian character from a book, maybe?

- I don’t know many such characters, though I know the Crime and Punishment (1866) drama by Fyodor Dostoyevsky (1821-1881) and also Anna Karenina (1877) by Leo Tolstoy (1828-1910). However, Anna Karenina (2012) was recently taken over again, so I didn’t get to it.

- Who would you play in Anna Karenina?

- There is one wife there, isn’t it? That other’s guy wife. There is always a wife’s character, and everyone has a wife, so the wife, sure. I remember the wife’s character holding a secret. That’s Anna, of course. Anybody understands, what I’m talking about here? Well, it was long time ago, when I read the story studying at the 7th school grade. Actually, hold on, there is one Russian novel called Viy (1835) by Nikolai Gogol (1809-1852). I read that. I want to play it, that’s a really good book, there is the great setting and the Viy character itself sounds exciting.
