The Valentine's Couple -- “Beautiful Creatures” Interview with Alice Englert & Alden Ehrenreich 

“Beautiful Creatures” works for me because of the great chemistry between our main leads, Alice Englert (Lena Duchannes) and Alden Ehrenreich (Ethan Wate). Both actors, relatively new, were able to create palpable chemistry necessary for a supernatural love story to work. I was very happy to meet them, heck, even Alice (her mom is the great Jane Campion by the way) called me “adorable.” HA! In this interview, we talked about:

• I told Alice I love her mom, and to Alden that he has a “drooling charm” (a phrase I stole from the movie)
• What attracted them to their roles?
• How they created chemistry?
• His famous line – Leo does not have to die in “Titanic”
• If I have a magic wand and I told them they could see the future, what would it be?
• What do they want audiences to feel after watching “Beautiful Creatures”

Have fun!

The Fantastic Jeremy Irons Talks About “Beautiful Creatures” and Google! 

I can listen to Jeremy Irons forever! The voice of Scar in “The Lion King” (yes!) has a very commanding presence and stature and yes, a soothing voice. Plus, he’s a respected actor having won an Oscar in 1991 for “Reversal of Fortune.” In “Beautiful Creatures,” Irons stars as Macon Ravenwood, our heroine’s (Alice Englert as Lena Duchannes) mysterious uncle. No, he will not win an Oscar for the role, but he certainly adds gravitas to the project. In this interview, we talked about:

• What made him want to join the cast of “Beautiful Creatures”
• His character’s outfits are fantastic!
• The power of literature
• What attracted him to his character Macon?
• Like his character, does Irons like Google and technology?

Have fun!
