I mean, that's what you do as an actor.
I don't like focusing on the hair and the makeup and all of those things, because I still believe in the mystery of the performance.
And there's such a desire now for people to tell you everything and dissect everything and give you.
But there's magic involved. And I love keeping that magic too so that then people just watch the film.
I mean, I have to say this year, I got given, well, it was last year, but they've seemed to have come out within a couple of months of each other.
But Boy Erased and Destroyer, to have both those characters in the same year is amazing at this time of my life.
And they're both really extreme and you're not seeing Boy Erased tonight, but by talking about the two, one of them is they're both mothers, they're both on a path trying to heal what they've done to their children.
And I find that really powerful and emotional.
And I love that they're so different, but strangely enough, they're on the same path.
And that was really, really interesting to me.
And I actually did Boy Erased, I had four weeks off, and then I went straight into Destroyer. And then I collapsed.
I was going to say because it's a very physical performance and it's also very masculine, but yet so deeply feminine.
Well, I would say it's deeply female.
Yeah, it is.
Which is a weird thing to say, but I do see it as deeply female because her motivations are female.
I mean, you haven't seen the movie yet, but there's a moment when, and only a woman gets to experience this when she finds out she's pregnant and it's a flash.
She's high, she's doing cocaine and that is devastating for her.
That's the beginning of her relationship with her child.
So, that's a female situation for her.
That is, and it's so complicated and devastating.
It leads her on this very, very destructive path.
But she's maternal and she's operating from a maternal force.
It may have been a maternal force that has made massive mistakes, has not been there, and has not been what we call a good mother.
But she's a mother and the basis for so much of her motivations and her drive is from that. And her shame and her pain.
Thank you for having us.
Thank you. Enjoy the film.
