Anna Faris Interview - Observe and Report
Anna says that since this movie is darker there will be times you are ____________ in your seat and uncomfortable.
Anna Faris – "Yes."
Anna Faris: "A pug. A little boy – he's so cute. He's got a jelly belly, but I've never had one before. It's been really fun."
Is it as fun as working opposite Seth Rogen?
Anna Faris: "Almost. Working with Seth is just so great."
When he starts that laugh how do you keep it under control?
Anna Faris: "He's like a machine gun. He laughs more than anybody I know. But he's such a great guy. I definitely had to bite my cheeks a lot when we're working together."
How easy is it, because I know a lot of this is improv'd, for you two to get into a rhythm?
Anna Faris: "You know, it was great. I had such a specific role and she was so awful."
You think she's mean, right?
Anna Faris: "I think she's awful. Well, yeah, she's awful. She's one of the worst characters I've played. So it was really fun to just be so bad."
It's kind of freeing to be able to do something you wouldn't do in real life?
Anna Faris: "Completely. It was great. I loved it."
Are you going to be producing more movies, because I know you've done that before?
Anna Faris: "I hope so. We've got some stuff in development and I really hope to. That's my goal is to sort of attempt to do more of that. I hope that that's in my future."
Did that turn out how you wanted it to, being a producer and being in charge?
Anna Faris: "Yeah. It was an incredibly rewarding and inspiring experience. It made me feel like I actually had some control over my career, which was great."
What can audiences expect from this one because I hear it's kind of darker than a normal comedy?
Anna Faris: "It is, but it's really funny. But there's moments where you're kind of squirming in your seat a little bit. There's moments that are a little uncomfortable, but it's a good ride."
