  • Matthew McConaughey: 'Interstellar' Roundtable

    In the 2014 Interstellar Roundtable, the actor reveals that during his first meeting with Interstellar director Christopher Nolan they didn't discuss the script. "I don't know the title, I don't know what it's about or anything," says McConaughey. "We go in his office and we talk for three hours. Not one word about the film, not what it was about. I came away knowing nothing else about the film."

  • Angelina Jolie: Director Roundtable

  • Anne Hathaway: Drama Actress Roundtable

    "I went into it with a lot of trust and a lot of hope and I had a blast doing it." Anne Hathaway told THR in 2012 about hosting the 83rd Annual Academy Awards with James Franco. "And I realized afterwards, I played to the house; it’s a 3,500-seat theater so I was just shooting energy to the back of it and it was like a party! It was great, and I think it looked slightly manic and 'hyper-cheerleadery' on screen. I have no regrets about doing it. Whether or not it was an actual failure it was perceived as a massive failure."
