THR's Actress Roundtable: Six A-Listers Sound Off on Bad Reviews, Nudity and Playing Hitler
In the new issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine, Charlize Theron, Michelle Williams, Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer, Glenn Close and Carey Mulligan kick off THR's annual awards season series with an exclusive discussion on their regrets, the mean things people say to them and why Davis hates it when a black actress' performance is called "dignified."
SEX AND NUDITY ONSCREEN: HOW IT FEELS TO TAKE IT ALL OFF
THR: Carey, I read that Shame originally was set in London, but director Steve McQueen couldn't find people there to talk about sex addiction. True?
Carey Mulligan: Yeah, in England you can't find people that talk about sex. He and [co-writer] Abi Morgan tried to write it in London, but no one was willing to have the conversations.
Theron: That's because they don't have sex [in Britain]. (Laughter.)
