Transcript for 'Ordinary Love' stars Lesley Manville and Liam Neeson in a very different role
Liam Neeson and Lesley Manville are starring together in and getting great reviews for the new movie, "Ordinary love." Welcome, you two. Thank you for joining us this morning. Great to be with you. Your chemistry is just incredible in this film. It's amazing to me that you have never worked together. No. But what was your first impression when you did meet? Thank god we got on, didn't we? He's all right. He's a bit tall, but, you know. She looked very small. I thought, aww. She needs looked after, you know? We had never met before. I was aware of what she is. Lesley is one of the great actresses and I mean that. Great. You're not bad yourself. I think with her it was, like, a walk in the park. Makes it easy. She just makes it easy. Well, you play a lovely married couple, and the producers when they were coming up with this, they had you two in mind for this role, and Liam in particular, they really wanted you for this. Is it true that they sent the script to your good friend Bono to give it to you? My old pal, Bono. Yeah. He says, read this. I couldn't stop turning the pages. I thought, okay. I'll read it, and it was true. I literally couldn't stop the What is it about when you received the script? What was it that just jumped out at you? Well, you know, it starts and ends with the script where, you know, you can have great people in it, great directors, but if what's on the pages is not well written, you're going to -- you're onto a loser really. But, you know, it's such a beautiful film because it's so -- it's a big epic terrible thing that's happening to this couple, but at the heart of it, it's about them and their relationship, and they're enduring love which is quite unusual to see a middle-aged love story on screen where they still really like each other. After 30 years of marriage. Such grace between you two, and unexpected humor that would come through as well at times. They're a funny couple. That's one of the things that keeps them going, their humor. Should we show them a clip? Let's look at a clip, "Ordinary love." There's no point of thinking like that. You don't know. You can't do anything until you know. I know. I know. So you're a doctor now? You don't have to be a doctor to know things like that. Yes, you do. I know that three is closer to five, and I know I've got breast cancer. Okay. What are we going to do now? I don't know. Correct. Because you can't do anything because you don't know. Wow. Wow. And Liam, this movie is a departure from a lot of the action-packed movies we've seen you do. When I read the script and I know the subject matter is breast cancer. They told me I had three faces. Listen. If I started beating you up, you would have no chance. I agree. I agree with that. Lesley, your character wore a locket throughout the movie. What was in the locket? Well, in the story, they've got it -- they have had a daughter who's die some time ago, and I just had this little idea to have a locket with a photo in, but I put a photo of my granddaughter, Matilda in it as a little girl. I still got it. I stole it actually. But nobody knows. Little trinkets like that. "Ordinary love," but it's extraordinary. What makes this so extraordinary? Go on. You say. Well, love itself is extraordinary, right? Marriage, living together, it's hard after a number of years, and these two, they have been married for 30 years and they live almost in a little cocoon of their own love. They make fun of each other, they get each other's humor. They insult each other in a good way, but they're absolutely Cray -- crazy for each other, and that's rare I think. Well put. Well put. It is extraordinary love, but you guys make sure you go check out "Ordinary love," all right? It's in theaters now.
