PostSubject: Melissa Leo discusses Kristen/method acting (old)   Sun Jul 11, 2010 5:02 am

(WARNING! WTTR spoilers!!)

'On November 13, 2008, the actress Melissa Leo joined me at Brandeis University for a Q&A following a screening of her film “Frozen River,” for which she would go on to receive an Academy Award nomination for best actress. A few minutes into the conversation, I asked Melissa to explain what “Method acting” is for those who might not know, and she elected to cite as an example the work of Kristen Stewart in ”Welcome to the Rileys,” a Jake Scott film that she, Stewart, and James Gandolfini had just finished shooting in New Orleans.

Since “Rileys” is having its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival as I type, I felt that now was as appropriate a time as any to share Melissa’s thoughts:


They — along with Stewart’s performance in “Adventureland” and Julianne Moore’s kind words about her abilities as an actress — have really opened my eyes to the fact that Kristen is much more than just another pretty face.'
