Transcript for Julia Stiles talks about 'Hustlers' and potential Oscar buzz
Spent a lot of time alone. You got into fights and had some bad boyfriends. Okay, what else? That your parents are immigrants and that when your father left, your mother dropped you off at your grandparents house and never came back. Pretty heavy stuff there. Back now with Julia stiles who you just saw share that emotional moment with Constance Wu in "Hustlers." We've seen Julia rule the big screen in favors like janai's favorite "Ten things I hate about you." Sitting next to a fan girl. Trying not to. Trying not to. "Save the last dance." The TV drama "Riviera" and now this new film "Hustlers" getting big Oscar buzz. What was it like working with that cast? It's a star-studded cast. It was amazing. My first day of shooting, I had a scene where I'm interviewing Jennifer Lopez, and I was like, I couldn't keep my jaw off the floor because she had transformed into this other person. It's an amazing cast and it was all women. I mean, you know, as the main characters, it was really great and I was so happy to be a part of it. Eva mentioned the Oscar buzz. Do you dare get optimistic about the potential for this one raking in some awards? I mean, honestly this was like the little movie that could. It has now made a lot of money and found an audience but we shot it in 29 days and took a long time for the producers to get it off the ground because people were scared of the story so to hear about Oscar buzz and see that the film has made money is very exciting because it means that a story that we were really excited to tell found an audience. So I'm rooting for Jennifer because I think she's amazing in the film. Yeah and Jennifer along with the other leads in the film, they all play strippers. Did it ever make you want to get up there and try? I was -- I feel silly to ask this. Who can compete with that? Look at that. They put a lot of work into it. I was relieved I didn't have to do that until I saw the film and said that looks like a lot a little fomo. This question is for janai. "Ten things I hate about you." Years since that came out. Do you have a special memory that makes you laugh to this day? Oh, my goodness. Do you remember that? I barely remember. It's all a blur. It was 20 years ago. It was amazing. I remember the scene where heath ledger was like singing "I can't take my eyes off you" and running up and down the football stadium and I was just floored because nobody expected him to really go for it the way that he did. It was all really fun. He did go for it. Okay, we want to play a game with you. We have paddles, if you'll bring the paddles in, we've got this game called squad goals. We'll ask you questions and you so we're going to ask you some questions and you are going to pick members of your squad, members of your squad, Dan. Remember, I'm sitting next to you. I'm closest to you. My squad will kill everybody else's squad. Yes. Who wow want to drive your getaway car? Flip it over. You go first? No, I want to go last. Janai because if you mess with her she'll cut you. That's -- Well said, Dan. Cardi B. Because she does not stop at red lights. Seems like a fast car. Who would you most want to sing karaoke with? Oh, oh, oh. Oh this, is me? Okay. You go. Lizzo, of course. Duh. I'm definitely not going to pick you because I'm picking whit Johnson. Only if it's Disney songs and rap. I don't know if you've ever heard him rap. It will bring tears to your eyes and not in a good way. Don't ask me to sing journey. Who would you most want to jump out of a plane with? Oh. Does it have a parachute? You go first. Or are you just jumping? Look at that face. Yeah, that's fierce. That's fierce. That's some blue steel right there. I'm going to pick Eva because she's very cautious and I feel like we would know if our parachutes are working. Good point. She can do the science, the velocity and all that. "Hustlers" is available on digital now and will be available to own on 4k, blu-ray and DVD on December 10th thank you so much for being with us.
