How Actors Are Like Babies

28 Feb

Newsweek magazine has this awesome online feature around Oscar season each year, which somehow I only became privy to recently, called “Oscar Roundtable“. It takes a handful of the oscar nominated actors of the year, puts them all at a table and interviews them, attempting to instigate a more candid dialogue about the trials and tribulations of acting.
Unfortunately, it’s divided up into about 10 clips, each around 5 minutes and beginning with the obligatory 30second advertisements. But, I got kind of addicted. One of my favorites of the videos was of Colin Firth drawing the hilarious yet very true comparison of actors to babies.

Other actors of the roundtable, Annette Benning, Nicole Kidman, Michelle Williams, Natalie Portman and James Franco also had some great moments. For someone following this dream it was really fun to hear little tidbits into how some of the top hollywood actors work.

Yesterday was the Oscars, but I was busy producing my play so I wonder who won!
