My Fun Interview with Jude Law for “Side Effects” – What Makes Him Happy? 

I love Jude Law! There I said it! Not only is he a brilliant actor, he’s also always sweet and eloquent during interviews. Law stars in the new film “Side Effects” as Dr. Jonathan Banks, a psychiatrist who gets entangled in the lives of a young couple, Martin (Channing Tatum) and Emily (Rooney Mara). Emily becomes his patient and then…he gives her the pill Ablixa. In this interview, we talked about:

*** Its unpredictability fooled me
*** It stars with blood and ends with tears
*** The film’s multi-twists
*** The film’s timeliness
*** It plays with your prescription
*** My favorite line in the movie – in the U.K., when you go to a psychiatrist, it means you’re not well, in America, it means you’re getting better
*** America’s Pill Culture
*** What makes him happy?

Rooney Mara Untangles “Side Effects!” See My Fun Interview! 

Rooney Mara (“The Social Network,” “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo”) is an incredible enigma. She has a knack for stealing scenes (yes, you remember her as the jilted girlfriend in “The Social Network” and she was only in few scenes) and carried “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” from start to finish. She was awarded an Oscar nomination for that film.

In “Side Effects,” she plays a woman battling depression and anxiety after her husband, Channing Tatum’s Martin, went to prison for insider trading. As soon as he gets out of jail, things get complicated with Mara’s Emily trying to kill herself. So Jude Law’s Dr. Banks prescribes a pill that adds layers to the drama. In this interview, we talked about:

*** What attracted her to her character Emily?
*** The unpredictability of the script
*** Jude Law’s character
*** Working with Channing Tatum
*** Mental health versus violence
*** What makes her happy?

The Sweet Vinessa Shaw Talks About “Side Effects” 

You may remember Vinessa Shaw in the Disney Halloween-themed film from 1993 called “Hocus Focus,” or in the 1999 Stanley Kubrick film “Eyes Wide Shut.” Shaw has a knack for being memorable in the films she’s in, and in “Side Effects,” she plays Deirdre Banks, the wife of Dr. Banks (Jude Law). I loved meeting Miss Vinessa, she’s sweet and down-to-earth. In this interview, we talked about:

*** How she got involved to making “Side Effects”
*** Working with Steven Soderbergh
*** What attracted her to her character Deirdre Banks
*** Her initial reaction to Scott Z. Burns’ script
*** The film stars with blood and ends with tears
*** Working with Jude Law
*** The film’s superficial pill culture – the Bitter Pill – but look inside and it’s about human frailties
*** What makes her happy?
