The actress speaks with Taffy Brodesser-Akner about her new film, “Song One,” and learning to deal with the “Hathahaters.”
You’re not only the star of your new movie, “Song One,” but it’s also the first movie you have produced — and you’re producing it with your husband, Adam Shulman. Do you feel that if this experience doesn’t tear you apart, you’re meant to be together? We felt pretty good at the end of it. It was humbling, because I thought I knew a lot more about making movies than I did.
Was it always going to be you in the lead role? No. We were actually on it as producers for a couple of weeks. And then I went to [the writer and director] Kate Barker-Froyland and said, “I’d like to throw my hat in the ring if you’re interested.” She thought about it for a couple of days and called me back and said she’d like me to play the part.
Was it strange to play a character falling in love with somebody else in front of your new husband? We’ve been together for six years, so we’re pretty well versed on that dynamic. It was more about putting [my co-star] Johnny Flynn at ease. Because all of a sudden, he has a love scene with the producer’s wife — also a producer.
Was your husband on the set that day? No.
The Oscars are coming up. Do you have any advice for Neil Patrick Harris about hosting? Do the opposite of what I did, and you’ll be fine.
