    I find it slightly unsettling that you consistently focus on a female subject’s “attractiveness,” always quoting from other sources, and usually at the head of an interview, as though it were something to “get out of the way” before delving into the heart of the matter. Why mention it at all? Is her perspective on being called “hot” interesting?

  2. David Poland says:

    1. Google her.

    2. In this case, much of the focus was sudden fame… and with it, intense public attention.

    3. Yes, it is often an issue with women in this business and yes, better to get it out of the way early on.

“I was fortunate to be in the two big film epics of the last part of the 20th century: Godfather and “Lonesome Dove” on television, which was my favorite part. That’s my “Hamlet.” The English have Shakespeare; the French, Molière. In Argentina, they have Borges, but the western is ours. I like that.”

“He’s not one of my heroes. He doesn’t touch me or inspire me. There are so many people who inspire me, so many people who touch my heart. It doesn’t matter if he’s not a hero of mine. It doesn’t matter if I don’t tell the whole world how honoured I am to share a prize with a man who made somebody play with words over the years. He’s a hero in cinema historically, but he’s not a personal hero of mine. Jean-Luc Godard did this press release and he mentioned he would never go and see Mommy in theatres because he already knew what Mommy was about: another ‘TV movie’ and that nowadays everything is predictable. He’s this old grinchy man. He’s the grinch from Switzerland in the mountain. Deaf, blind, smoking, literally. Basically being provocative about everything.”
