It’s really a nightmare scenario: You break up with your boyfriend and, in an unlikely twist of destiny, cease living in the same building. In order to make matters worse, he has a new boyfriend – the real estate agent who showed you the apartment, and as luck had it a familiarity with your oldest friend. Den lille verden er den pragtfulde forudsætning for Zosia Mamets nyeste film, Drengen nedenunder.
Jeg er den første hovedrolle siden HBO’s piger, skuespilleren plays a twenty-one writer who moves back to New York City after spending time abroad in London, to meet only the same old feelings. Selvom fortællingen er bestemt mere Hannah end Shoshanna, er første gangsregissør Sophie Brooks direkte debut i samme vene som rom-coms som Da Harry mødte Sally, og er sikker på at behage fans af serien. Hendes taler Mamet om den nye udgivelse, exes og blonde.
What’s the most crazy experience you’ve ever had with ex? For mange år siden blev jeg kneppet og lanceret i en film som en glorificeret ekstra. I had just broken up with my boyfriend for two years, whom I was in love with, and I thought I would probably die of heartache. We shot a party scene – five nights in a row all night – and the director asked a bunch of friends, one of whom was my ex-elder if he would invite all his friends so that it would feel authentic. So I had to spend the next five nights with my ex, his brother and all the people there were our friends who were no longer my friends. Det var ikke sjovt.
Tror du på at blive venner med exes? I’m not somebody who has ever been able to become friends with exes, primarily because the reason why my previous relationships fell apart is because the guys were bad dudes. I had forfærdelig taste in men until I found my husband. Breakups var ikke mindelig – det var altid en eksplosion, hvor alle døde. Mænd min mand er venner med mange af hans ekser, og jeg har mødt mange af dem, og de er vidunderlige mennesker. I think it depends on the person and the relationship.
Denne film kunne muligvis være en lang episode af piger, mænd Diana er langt fra Shoshanna. Hvad tog dig til rollen? Jeg elskede Shoshanna så meget. Hun var den eneste person jeg nogensinde havde følt var en separat enhed, fordi hun var så forskellig fra mig som menneske. It felt like a departure because it was much closer to home for me. Første gang Sophie og jeg mødte, vi binder straks over vores kampe med angst og de ting, der plager Diana i filmen, var ting vi havde oplevet også: de måder du lærer at klare det på og hvordan det morphs som du bliver ældre.

Hvad er sandsynligheden for a piger genforening på den store skærm? I do not think it’s out of the possibilities. We had always spoken about it, but I think there was always an underlying sense of hope within joke that could happen. Lena always said that if we ever made a movie, there should be time in between, so it felt like we found these people in another part of their lives, unlike just picking up where they left. Hun ville ikke have det til at føle sig som en fortsættelse af showet, men en separat ting.
Taler om hvilke, Lena har været forældet i pressen for nylig. How do you consolidate a friend when she’s ned? Med Lena was the focus and has always been at work. Da vi skyder piger, When the press was about to come out, we would be back in production, so none of us really had time to absorb it or take it. Of course, people’s opinions are something but only to a certain extent, and I think the nature of our technological world is currently a little Hunger Games-til tider. You have these platforms that have this insane scope, and yet there is no responsibility because you do not say these words directly to another person. Words are thrown around in a rather irresponsible way, unnoticed and without thoughts. People want to say what they want to say, and they are entitled to their opinions, but that does not mean we should listen to them. I ending the day we just try to do something good. Lena har altid gjort det. Jeg kan ikke forestille mig, at dette gang ville være anderledes.
Fortæl mig om din beslutning om at gå blond. Have you always wanted to make the change, or was it because Shoshanna moved to Tokyo on the show? I wanted blonde hair for a really, really long time. På piger, nogen mønnede begrebet “Bloshanna”, da vi pitched for mig at være blondine, fordi jeg ønskede det så dårligt. After just shooting Season 4, I painted my hair in my hiatus and ended up training because of Tokyo history. Bloshanna levede inde i mig. Jeg forbliver stærk.

Dit navn er notorisk mispronounced, ligesom Saoirse Ronans. Har du nogensinde haft chancen for at komme sammen og handle om det? I’ve never met Saoirse, but I want to share similar stories, because both of our names are pronounced so far away from the way they are written. When you have an odd name or a name with an odd spelling, it becomes part of your life and you will understand it. Jeg tror ærligt, at det forstyrrer andre mennesker mere end mig, fordi de tror, at it insults me when they misrepresent it, which it does not. Now where I took my husband’s last name, Jonigkeit, I said yes, I slipped my hand in a scrabble bag full of letters.
