Winter 1968 and showbiz legend Judy Garland arrives in Swinging London to perform a five-week sold-out run at The Talk of the Town. It is 30 years since she shot to global stardom in The Wizard of Oz, but if her voice has weakened, its dramatic intensity has only grown. As she prepares for the show, battles with management, charms musicians and reminisces with friends and adoring fans, her wit and warmth shine through. Even her dreams of love seem undimmed as she embarks on a whirlwind romance with Mickey Deans, her soon-to-be fifth husband. Featuring some of her best-known songs, the film celebrates the voice, the capacity for love, and the sheer pizzazz of “the world’s greatest entertainer.”

Jun 20, 19 Ali   Articles & Interviews, Judy, Magazine, What/If Comments Off on What/If Made Renée Zellweger “Uncomfortable” And She Loved It

The star on her new Netflix series and how her own experience with fame prepared her to play Judy Garland.

Renée Zellweger was in first grade when she learned that acting could sting. To be an elf in a school play in Katy, Texas, she taped construction paper circles on her nose and cheeks—and discovered she was allergic to adhesive. “The bright red color stayed for a good week,” Zellweger recalls with a chuckle. (Her skin today is, of course, unblemished and radiant, befitting a movie star making the rounds to promote a TV venture.)

And while the reaction didn’t last, Zellweger’s acting ambitions stuck around despite two more decades of indignities: the high school drama teacher who said she looked too childish, the beef commercial she grinned through while vegetarian, the craft services lady who yelled “Cast and crew only!” at the young Dazed and Confused extra when she reached for a piece of gum. Even on the set of her first lead role in Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation, the perfectionist Zellweger was teased by her friend Matthew McConaughey for wanting to film one more take of witnessing her best friend get impaled by a meat hook.

Jun 14, 19 Ali   Articles & Interviews, Video Comments Off on Renee Zellweger and Sam Rockwell on How Bob Fosse Changed Their Lives

Sam Rockwell and Renée Zellweger both owe a career reinvention to the legendary choreographer and director Bob Fosse. Zellweger cemented her stardom with the 2002 film adaptation of Fosse’s musical “Chicago”; now she’s the latest big-screen superstar to shift to TV, with a rich turn in Netflix’s anthology series “What/If.” Rockwell, who, like Zellweger, is an Oscar-winning movie actor, actually plays Fosse in FX’s “Fosse/Verdon,” making his series debut examining the Broadway legend’s gifts and demons.

SAM ROCKWELL: We have something in common. I’m playing Bob Fosse, and you did “Chicago,” which I watched recently.

RENÉE ZELLWEGER: Oh, you did?

SR: I’m too lazy, and I wasn’t going to read the play or see it onstage. You were great in it. How was the preparation for the dancing?

RZ: It was Broadway boot camp. We spent months on a makeshift stage on a loading dock in Toronto. Rob Marshall took Fosse and expanded on it, but there was a lot of the original vocabulary incorporated.

SR: Did you get cramps in the middle of the night?

RZ: We didn’t have a middle of the night. We worked around the clock. Didn’t realize what a blessing it was until now. I just remember joy. We were working hard, but it didn’t feel like work.

SR: Michelle Williams [who played Gwen Verdon], she was like, “They seem like normal people, but these dancers are superheroes. What they can do with their bodies is extraordinary.” They don’t complain. They’re soldiers.

Jun 04, 19 Ali   Articles & Interviews, What/If Comments Off on Renee Zellweger and Mike Kelley on Deconstructing Fate and Consequences in ‘What/If’

SPOILER ALERT: Do not read if you have not yet watched “What/If,” streaming now on Netflix.

Writer and executive producer Mike Kelley’s latest piece of dramatic storytelling is a limited series morality tale that starts with a high-powered, wealthy woman named Anne Montgomery (Renee Zellweger) offering Lisa, a young woman with a startup (Jane Levy), the investment she needs — if she gives her one night with her husband Sean (Blake Jenner). What goes on during that evening will be protected by a non-disclosure agreement, and if he breaks the terms and shares the details, Anne will take control of the company. But that is just the tip of the iceberg for “What/If.”

While Kelley says the 1993 film “Indecent Proposal” was very much his “jumping off point” for this story, he was inspired by other “social thrillers” of the 1980s and 1990s, including “Fatal Attraction.” Borrowing from a traditional film’s structure, he weaved together 10 episodes of story that exposed a secret for each individual character, at a different point in the story. Angela’s (Samantha Marie Ware) affair with her boss (Dave Annable), for example, was shared early on, but both the reveal of just how sociopathic her boss was and how far he’d go to teach her a lesson came much later. Meanwhile, in the middle there was Lisa’s brother figure Marcos (Juan Castano) revealing to her that he was the one who set the fire that killed her parents, coupled with the truth emerging that Anne was actually her birth mother and therefore Lisa was not chosen as some random benefactor but had been watched her whole life, albeit slightly from afar.

“It is definitely tricky to balance all of those,” Kelley tells Variety. “What I wanted to do was make all the secrets and choices resonate with all of the other characters’ stories so that it had an impact. Obviously when [Marcos] reveals to Lisa what he has done and the fact that he has carried it around, that has an impact on how she receives the giant secret that is coming from [Anne].”

The character of Anne Montgomery, who Kelley calls “the most curated character I’ve ever created,” is one that he admits has been in his mind for a long time. “The reason that chess is a metaphor that keeps repeating is because she keeps thinking ahead all of the time, so she’s already decided how she’s going to react in a certain way. Obviously things don’t go exactly as she had planned and while the character could be getting a couple of notions of what she’d do, she was unprepared for exactly where it went — but very quickly on her feet figured out how she was going to get to the end game,” he says.

The key to creating a woman who could manipulate everyone around her but not come off as too campy a super-villain, he believes, was in one part the fact that Anne always put people in a situation where they would be the ones to have to make the choice. For example, she didn’t force Lisa and Sean to take the deal in the first place, and she didn’t force Sean to blurt out what happened during the night spent together, effectively putting him in breach of the contract and losing Lisa’s company.

“I feel like it’s important to recognize our responsibility in our own fate, which kind of deconstructs the idea of fate in general,” Kelley says. “When I opened the show very specifically with Anne contemplating the idea of everything happening for a reason, her whole point is, ‘Everything happens for a reason, but that reason is you.’”

The other essential ingredient was Zellweger’s choices in the performance of Anne’s calculated essence.

Kelley says he told Zellweger all of Anne’s secrets beforehand so that she could lay out a plan to portray her, choosing select moments to let the girl she was before she made herself into the woman she presents herself as shine through.

“This is a woman who takes up a lot of space but is so tightly wound because she cannot make mistakes — she doesn’t know how. There is nothing that is accidental, from the drink that she chooses to the clothes that she wears and the things that she reveals to the people around her or will admit to herself,” Zellweger says. “It’s fun to be so contained and not at the same time.”
