ROBIN WRIGHT TALKS TO FRANCIS FORD COPPOLA IN INTERVIEW MAGAZINE
ROBIN WRIGHT is a fascinating woman.
Even when I don’t care for a movie that she appears in, I always like her work. She’s honest and true and she puts herself out there. She’s fearless, does it all without a net and makes it look alarmingly easy.
(If you’ve ever done any acting, you know that it’s not…)
It also doesn’t hurt that she’s stunningly gorgeous in a way that approximates the glamour of old Hollywood.
She’s rather an enigma. Ms. Wright doesn’t talk to the press very often. People that you know little about often acquire a mystique that makes them even more intriguing.
To my amazement, I found an intimate portrait of ROBIN WRIGHT in INTERVIEW magazine. Guess who had the privilege of speaking with her? None other than FRANCIS FORD COPPOLA.
One of my all time favourite directors is engaged in the art of conversation with an actor I’ve long admired? That’s impressive.
In the course of this discussion, Ms. Wright talks about working with ANTHONY MINGHELLA, JUDE LAW, RUSSELL CROWE and REBECCA MILLER.
Here’s a little taste to get you through the night…
FRANCIS: It’s funny, because years ago, when we had Zoetrope up here in San Francisco and we were totally running out of money, my then young colleague George Lucas was saying, ‘You’ve got to get a job, Francis. They’re going to put a chain on the door . . .’
And so I did The Godfather, which was big. It was an industry picture. I don’t even know why they wanted me to do it. But, ironically, that is a film I did only because I had kids and no money and I wanted to survive…and it some how turned out to be artistically well considered.
ROBIN: Ya think, Francis?
I love it…
