Interview With Beautiful Betty Gilpin

Transcript:

>> HI!
>> Stephen: HI, YA.
NICE TO MEET YOU?
>> NICE TO MEET YOU, TOO.
>> Stephen: AS I SAID BEFORE, YOU’RE IN “GLOW,” THE GORGEOUS
LADIES OF WRESTLING.
THAT’S AN ENERGETIC ENDEAVOR.
YOU MUST REALLY BE WORKING UP A SWEAT OUT THERE.
>> YEAH, IT’S A LITTLE CRAZY.
IT’S A STRANGE TURN FOR MY LIFE TO TAKE.
I WAS DEFINITELY NOT AN ATHLETIC CHILD OR ADULT.
>> Stephen: DID YOU PLAY ANY SPORTS?
DID YOU PLAY– >> NO, I WAS DEFINITELY LIKE THE
SORT OF CRINGIEST COMBINATION POSSIBLE IN HIGH SCHOOL OF A
THEATER NERD AND, LIKE, A PHISH FAN STONER.
>> Stephen: HACKY SACK, I’M GOING TO GUESS?
>> NO, NO.
>> Stephen: BECAUSE I THINK PHISH FAN.
>> THAT WAS A LITTLE BEFORE MY TIME, HACKY SACK —
>> Stephen: OKAY!
>> SORRY, SORRY.
SORRY, STEPHEN.
>> Stephen: DON’T TOUCH ME!
>> NO, BUT I WAS DEFINITELY MORE LIKE, “CAREFUL, I HAVE
REHEARSAL.”
INSTEAD OF LIKE– YEAH.
>> Stephen: NO SPORTS AT ALL?
>> I DID– I KIND OF SAT IN THE OUTFIELD IN SOFTBALL AND, LIKE,
BRAIDED BLADES OF GRASS.
>> Stephen: TO SELL AT THE PHISH CONCERTS.
>> FOR SURE.
>> Stephen: THIS THIS THERE ARE PILE DRIVERS AND
BACKBREAKERS.
DO YOU HAVE TO LIFT UP THE OTHER GORGEOUS LADIES?
>> YEAH.
>> Stephen: THAT CAN’T BE EASY.
>> IT’S REALLY FUN, ACTUALLY.
I THINK A LOT OF FEMALE EXERCISE THESE DAYS, THERE’S A LOT OF
EXERCISE CLASSES THAT ARE, LIKE, MALE —
>> Stephen: GO BACK?
MALE GAYSY CAR ACCIDENT CLASSES.
>> LIKE WE GOTTA WORK THIS OR NO MAN IS EVER GOING TO LOVE US!
AND I THINK — >> Stephen: I GET THE MALE
GAYSY.
WHAT’S THE CAR ACCIDENT PART.
>> THOSE CLASSES CAN FEEL LIKE A CAR ACCIDENT.
THERE’S PURPLE LIGHTING.
THERE’S KE$HA.
IT’S TOO MUCH.
>> Stephen: DO YOU PUT HOT YOGA IN THERE?
>> A LITTLE GRIT BIT, YEAH.
BUT WRESTLING, I’M EXERER SIZING SO I CAN LIFT ALLISON BRIE AND
SLAM HER ON THE GROUND.
>> Stephen: WOW.
YOU HAVE– HAVE YOU HURT YOURSELF?
>> YEAH, I MEAN, YOU KNOW, MY BODY DEFINITELY FEELS, AFTER
“GLOW,” LIKE A 95-YEAR-OLD PONY WHO FELL DOWN THE STAIRS, FOR
SURE.
IT’S NOT A SAFE SPORT.
>> Stephen: YOU HAVE TO PUT THAT PONY DOWN, UNFORTUNATELY.
THAT PONY IS HEADED TO THE GLU FACTORY.
YOU HAVE HURT ALLISON BRIE?
>> NO, SHE’S GOOD.
>> Stephen: I– I– I AM NO GREAT ATHLETE.
I GET SKITTISH BEING PICKED UP.
I DON’T ENJOY BEING PICKED UP.
>> OKAY.
>> Stephen: I’M AFRAID THAT I’LL FALL ON MY NECK OR
SOMETHING LIKE THAT.
DO YOU EVER GET SCARED DOING IT?
DOES ANYTHING STILL– DOES ANYTHING SCARE YOU?
>> YEAH, WEIRD STUFF.
THIS IS SUCH AN ACTRESSY THING.
BUT I HAD A SWEGZ AN ASTROL GER RECENTLY.
AND SHE SAID– EVERYTHING SHE SAID WAS TOTALLY SPOT ON.
IT WAS SUPER WEIRD AND EERIE.
AND THEN SHE’S LIKE, “DO YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS?”
I WAS LIKE, “YEAH, I GUESS I’M SURPRISED YOU DIDN’T MENTION
ANYTHING ABOUT DEPRESSION.
THAT’S A PARENT OF MY LIFE.”
AND SHE POPPED A SNACK IN HER MOUTH.
“LET’S ATTACK A LOOK.”
YOU KNOW WHAT IT IS.
YOU’RE A PORTAL FOR GHOSTS.”
( LAUGHTER ) >> Stephen: WAIT.
THIS WAS TO CALM YOU DOWN?
THIS WAS TO CALM YOU DOWN?
>> YEAH, YEAH.
SHE WAS LIKE, “ANY TIME YOU THINK YOU’RE FEELING DEPRESSED
IT’S JUST A GHOST PASSING THROUGH YOUR BODY.”
I WAS LIKE, “ALL RIGHT.”
AND RECENTLY I SHOT — >> Stephen: DID THAT HELP?
>> I MEAN, I THINK IT’S KIND OF COOL.
ALTHOUGH, GHOSTS TERRIFY ME.
THE “SIXTH SENSE” LIKE RUINED MY LIFE.
I STILL RUSH AND RUN INTO BED.
I JUST SHOT A HORROR MOVIE AND THEY PUT ME UP IN A HAUNTED
HOTEL.
>> Stephen: COME ON!
>> IT WASN’T ALL RIGHT.
>> Stephen: DID THEY KNOW IT WAS HAUNTED?
>> YES, THE HOTEL WAS VERY PROUD OF IT.
ON THEIR WEBSITE THEY HAD, “ENJOY OUR SPA AND OUR GHOSTS!”
KNOWING I’M A GHOST PORTAL I SPENT THE WHOLE TIME BEING LIKE,
“NO, NO, NO, NO.”
>> Stephen: “GLOW” IS CLEARLY– IT’S A BIG HIT.
THIS IS SEASON TWO.
SEASON THREE HAPPENING?
>> WE DON’T KNOW.
>> Stephen: THIS HAS TO BE A HIGH POINT IN YOUR CAREER.
>> YEAH.
IT COULD BE ALL DOWNHILL FROM HERE.
>> Stephen: WHAT’S THE LOW POINT?
I’M INTERESTED IN THE LOW POINT.
I HAD THEM.
I WAS LIKE, “PLEASE, MEDICATE ME.”
>> FOR SURE.
I STUDIED THEATER, AND IN THEATER SCHOOL YOU GET TO DO ALL
THESE CRAZY, EXCITING THINGS AND PLAY, YOU KNOW, HAMLET IN SPACE!
AND, YOU KNOW, JUST DO THE– GET TO USE EVERY TOOL IN YOUR
ACTOR’S TOOLBOX.
AND THEN GRADUATING, ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU, YOU KNOW, LOOK LIKE
BRITNEY SPEARS’ MEAN AUNT, IN TERMS OF, LIKE, THE ROLES OUT
THERE, LIKE, ONE OF MY FIRST AUDITIONS WAS FOR ALIEN VERSUS
PREDDOR 2, WHICH I WAS REALLY EXCITED ABOUT.
BUT THE SCENE WAS– THEY WERE LIKE IT’S A NONSPEAKING ROLE.
I WAS LIKE, “ABSOLUTELY.”
( LAUGHTER ) AND THEY WERE LIKE, “YOU ARE
GOING TO DO TWO TAKES.
YOUR JOB IS TO MIME DISROBE AGO MIME DISROBING BY A POOL– LOOK
UP AND SEE ALIEN.
AND THEN TAKE TWO, YOU MIME DISROBING, LOOK UP, AND SEE
PREDDOR, AND JUST MAKE THEM DIFFERENT.
JUST DO TWO DIFFERENT THINGS.”
>> Stephen: I HATE TO TAKE YOU BACK TO A DARK TIME, BUT WOULD
YOU– YOU DON’T HAVE TO MIME THE DISROBING, BUT COULD YOU JUST–
JUST MAYBE LOOK AT CAMERA TWO RIGHT HERE, OR MAYBE THREE RIGHT
OVER THERE.
READY?
LOOK UP AND SEE PREDDOR, AND THEN LOOK UP AND SEE THE ALIEN.
>> I WAS DEFINITELY COMMITTED TO SHOWING THEM THAT I WAS A REAL
ACTOR.
>> Stephen: OKAY.
>> SO IN THE FIRST ONE I THINK I GOT– I GOT LOST IN A LOVING
MEMORY AND THEN LOOKED UP.
SO THIS IS ME GETTING LOST IN A LOVING MEMORY.
>> Stephen: AND SEEING WHAT?
>> ALIEN.
>> Stephen: GOOD.
>> OH, MY GOD!
( LAUGHTER ) ( APPLAUSE ).
>> Stephen: OH, MY GOD.
>> OH, MY GOD!
>> Stephen: THAT’S LIKE YOUR MOTHER-IN-LAW JUST WALKED IN ON
YOU.
NOW GIVE ME PREDATOR, IF YOU’VE GOT IT.
>> I THINK I WAS LIKE, “MAYBE McKENZIE NEEDS LASIX SURGERY
AND SHE CAN’T SEE WHAT SHE’S SEEING.
IT WAS LIKE…
( LAUGHTER ) AAAHHH!
( APPLAUSE ).
>> Stephen: AND– I HESITATE TO ASK, BUT DID YOU GET THE
PART?
>> I DIDN’T, NO, NO.
>> Stephen: OH.
>> NO.
NO FEEDBACK.
>> Stephen: “ALIEN VERSUS PREDATOR 3.”
>> PLEASE!
>> Stephen: SO NICE TO MEET YOU.
THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE.
>> THANK YOU SO MUCH.
>> Stephen: SEASON TWO OF “GLOW” PREMIERES JUNE 29 ON NETFLIX.
