Transcript:Fracture Movie Premiere InterviewsAbout.com's Hollywood Movies Guide Rebecca Murray Interview Highlight from the Fracture premiere.
Fracture Star Anthony Hopkins:You have said this has been one of your more enjoyable movie experiences. What was so good about working on this set?
Sir Anthony Hopkins: "Working with a good actor like Ryan Gosling and working with a really good director, Gregory Hoblit, and a good script. That's all you need."
Is it the collaborative process?
Sir Anthony Hopkins: "Yes. Well, I like directors who just, you get on the set and they shoot it. They just get on with it. Not too much discussion, no rewrites, just do it. You collaborate with your fellow actors and the director. They may do a rewrite of a line here or there but it's pretty straight forward stuff."
Fracture Star Rosamund Pike:How tough was it for you to get into character and understand who she was?
Rosamund Pike: "Well I find really strong women like that quite hard to play. I found it quite hard to identify with someone who prioritizes work and career over sort of friends and family. I found that quite hard to relate to so I found they were quite high and difficult shoes to stand in."
How did you get into them? What did you connect with?
Rosamund Pike: "I met some female lawyers, female attorneys here in LA. I just kind of got into their mindset of very, very ruthless, determined sort of way of thinking about things. I said to this one woman I said, 'What do you feel if you're defending someone who you suspect is guilty and you get them the verdict of innocent?' She just looked at me and she said, 'Well, the prosecution didn't do their job well enough.' I thought, 'That's it. That's Nikki.'"
Fracture Writer Glenn Gers:What's the inspiration for the story?
Writer Glenn Gers: "Actually it was Dan Pyne's original idea. I worked on the script after he had done it. It's a really clever idea. I have to give him all the credit for that. And then I worked with the producers and director and actors, and worked up the dialogue and characters."
How tough is it to make sure you don't give away stuff too early?
Writer Glenn Gers: "Really tough. We had to work a lot to keep things revealing, but not too revealing. It's a lot of work."
