Maya Rudolph @ Away We Go – Trailer

I adore actress Maya Rudolph’s work in Atlman’s Prairie and Arteta’s Chuck & Buck and her forthcoming honesty in Greenfield-Sanders & Mitchell’s documentary Black List, to name a few, and thought she was capable of doing so much more as an untaped dramatic actress with underlying heart-breaking humor with sorrow. Apparently, director Sam Mendes is a fan as well because she stars in his new summer film – Away We Go.

Maya Rudolph is repped by Elyse Scherz @ Endeavor. Away We Go formerly known as The Farlanders and This Must Be the Place arrives in theaters Friday, June 5.

Kate Winslet Humps Vanity Fair

Kate Winslet stars in directors Stephen Daldry’s The Reader and Sam Mendes’ The Revolutionary Road and promotes the two Oscar juggernauts by gracing the cover and pages of Vanity Fair. The issue shot by Steven Meisel hits newsstand on Tuesday, November 11.

Steven Meisel

On Revolutionary Road co-star Leonardo DiCarprio: Leo and I were always aware that if we were going to do something together again that there would be a sense of expectation. It was going to have to be the right thing. We could see ourselves playing that married couple. The friendship that we have and the solidity of that was something we would be able to use. Leo and I, you know, are sort of kindred spirits—we’re cut from the same cloth.

On her fashion: I often look at women who wear great jeans and high heels and nice little T-shirts wandering around the city and I think, I should make more of an effort. … But then I think, they can’t be happy in those heels.

On body issue: This is going to sound really weird, but I never had a desire to be famous. I never had huge ambitions – never. I was fat. I didn’t know any fat famous actresses. I just did not see myself in that world at all, and I’m being very sincere. You know, once a fat kid, always a fat kid. Because you always think that you just look a little bit wrong or a little bit different from everyone else.

To read more on Kate, visit Vanity Fair. Kate Winslet is repped by Hylda Queally @ Creative Artists Agency (CAA).

The Reader: When he falls ill on his way home from school, 15 year-old Michael Berg is rescued by Hanna, a woman twice his age. The two begin an unexpected and passionate affair only for Hanna to suddenly and inexplicably disappear. Eight years later, Michael, now a young law student observing Nazi war trials, meets his former lover again, under very different circumstances. Hanna is on trial for a hideous crime, and as she refuses to defend herself, Michael gradually realizes his boyhood love may be guarding a secret she considers to be more shameful than murder.

Revolutionary Road: The story of a young couple trying to find fulfillment in an age of conformity. Trapped in a world of encoded convention, they dream without faith, as lies and self-deceptions build to explosive consequences.
