Mary is absolutely stunning in the latest issue of Institute Magazine. In the interview, Mary talks about her new films, Kill the Messenger and The Hollars, which actor has influenced her the most, and more. You can read the full interview here, along with some highlights below. And be sure to check out the gallery for the amazing new pictures!
Additionally, Yahoo! Movies debuted a new clip yesterday from Kill the Messenger, which you can now view below. The film will hit theaters on October 10th. I’ve also added caps of Mary into the gallery. You can view the full set by clicking on the thumbnails.
Institute: What drew you to the part of Anna Simons? Institute: How was it working alongside Jeremy Renner?
Mary Elizabeth Winstead: I was very excited to play Anna, as she’s the editor of the paper and quite an authoritative figure. And yet, she is still young and relatively inexperienced and not perfect. She’s smart and strong, but also fallible. She gets in a little over her head when the story breaks and her relationship with Gary becomes strained. It was great to get to play out this friendship/working relationship with Jeremy onscreen. He’s such an incredible actor and it was so easy to feel so many things for him in any given scene. Gary can be very frustrating for Anna at times, but what she sees him go through is ultimately heartbreaking.
Institute: You have worked alongside some incredible talent, who has been the most influential?
Mary Elizabeth Winstead: It was great to watch Jeremy work- he’s such a free and instinctual actor. You never know what choices he’s going to make from scene to scene and that’s always really exciting and invigorating to act alongside. I’ve been lucky to work with a lot of actors who inspire me in so many ways.
Institute: What has been a stand-out out moment in your career so far?
Mary Elizabeth Winstead: I’ve had a few that have felt like personal milestones for me, but I think the film that still stands out for people is Scott Pilgrim Vs. the World. I feel proud to be known as “Ramona Flowers” to the fans of that film. It’s gained quite a cult following over the past few years and I really hope it continues to grow. I’d be more than happy if that turns out to be the project I’m remembered for because it’s just such a great and completely unique film.
