Amy Kaufman from the Los Angeles Times sat down with Rachel to promote “Southpaw” and “True Detective“. The interview also features quotes from her co-stars Colin Farrel & Jake Gyllenhaal and “Spotlight” director Tom McCarthy. We have added the first photoshoot outtakes in our gallery and the full interview in our press archive. Excerpts can be found below.
On her imagined career: “But it [becoming a movie star] wasn’t something I really meditated on or planned for in any way. I really thought I’d be doing theater in Canada. I’d grown up doing children’s theater there, and I always imagined myself being artistic director of a children’s theater company.”
On being ‘picky’ with roles: “If I’m picky, it’s for that reason. I want to be able to bring my best to the table. So if I’m not connecting to something, then I’m not gonna hold up my end of the bargain, and that’s really embarrassing.”
On Marvel’s Doctor Strange Rumors: “It’s still super-early days, and I don’t know where that’s gonna go, if it’s gonna go anywhere at all.”
