Abby Wambach: If you're not a good leader on the bench, you cannot call yourself a good leader on the field.
"Hey everyone. This show might sound a bit different today because we're skimming from three different couches. The scam is still working from home for the time being because of covid nineteen. Today, we have a very special guest joining us abby Wambach is here with us on skin from the couch she is a two time Olympic gold medalist, a FIFA World Cup champion, and a member of the national soccer hall of fame. Also, she hasn't slowed down in retirement she is now a New York Times. Author and equal pay activists. We I had the pleasure of meeting abby when we spoke to her wife, Glennon Doyle on the show in March and we dragged her onto the podcast as well, and if you haven't listened to that episode, go check it out. It's a good one abby. Thank you so much for joining us today. Welcome to skin from the catch. Yeah. Thanks for having me. I'm so thrilled and honored to be with you all on three different couches. Thou-. Before. We jump into our first question I have to tell you I was looking at our prep for this and there was one bullet in here. That has really made me laugh as I have to share it, which is that you used to have a special card that got you a free Burrito a day from AAA but it stopped working when you're retired that seems passive aggressive for sure to Poli what the F.. Yeah. So when I first got this card, it was Gosh I must've been ten years ago now and you know like the gold cards portly for life like essentially my name is on it and you guys don't know how I go way back. From the early days and I mean I would get a Burrito. Day You guys we're both creatures of habits. I respect this. Yeah. It was crazy and this is before we really knew how many calories were in each burrito. Bowl that I would make or Burrito early days. and. So then yeah, of course when I retired, I was super excited to still be able to get one free Burrito a week for year, but they never really checked up on it but then I think when I got a family when I married Glenn and attained. That you know fifteen dollar meal. Turned into a sixty five dollar meal or seventy dollars meal for the whole family and pull was like I. Don't know if we're GONNA keep floating this for her so. It was a good run while it lasted I'm sorry that you've struggled with that but I did make me laugh as read. So, we're going to jump into our very first question. We'd like to ask everybody it just skim your resume skin my resume. It's so funny because when you retire, that's like that's essentially what I've had to do over the last four or five years of my life since retiring from playing on the national team, and if people don't really know I played for a long time on our women's national team. So Ski. My life I'm the youngest of seven children I grew up in Rochester New York, and I went to the University of Florida and played soccer there for four seasons where after I was drafted number two by the way just remember this folks you don't get drafted number one. You can still succeed I was drafted number two out of college to go play for a team called The Washington freedom the best player in. The world at the time. Mia. Hamm played on that team and it really changed my life because we were able to develop a connection that then transferred into me getting called into the national team and playing on the national team in scoring goals in the national team, and then I had a pretty long career representing his country won a gold medal. I want a couple of medals actually I won a fee. For Women's World Cup. World. Cup. I should say it doesn't matter if you're a guy or girl that's pretty awesome in my retirement I have kind of taken on this activism role that when I play ironically when I played I was a little bit more like just go and do my job and we were going to show our activism rather than talk about it. But when you quit playing, you gotta actually transfer that. Because I can't play anymore I can't show it in the ways that I used to. So I've transitioned into becoming a public speaker and an activist and apparent and wife, and that is my skin. Has a great skin? What is it like to be really good at something where young 'cause I have? No clue. Yeah I mean it's confidence building you know I felt like. Okay. I know that I'm good at this thing over here but I think you know all of us have our little things right? Like no matter what kind of. Place we grew up or family we grew up in or what kind of trauma we we experienced as a child because we all do some of US feel like we're unlovable my case in particular some of us were neglected. Some of us were over parented like we all have problems inside of our family dynamics that for me really allowed me to and gave me the courage to propel in this kind of an individualistic career. So when I was young I kind of was a very big risk taker. I was a free spirit is what they called me, I think that's what they call children who don't follow the rules as much as their parents want them to and I think that the other side of that coin is I was really trying to get the attention of my parents, right. So the very thing that might have felt trauma or hardship from in my childhood is the very thing that made me successful. So I have to always remember that like as much as I as young as seven children. As much as all of us wanted the attention of our parents, I do think that kind of parent team actually shaped me and and allowed me to explore this competitiveness inside. In this drive and this embiid to go after what I needed and what I wanted. So I give a lot of credit to that form of parenting into that trauma

"Story at the bottom of the hour. Governor Greg Abbott says local officials may be contributing to the spread of covert 19 by not enforcing his mask requirement. But while some say they will start writing tickets, others say the governor hasn't given them enough authority. Charlie's Alan Sky joins us with a story live, Alan. Have the Tarrant County District attorney's office is the governor's order is not enforceable because he does not allow people to be detained. Judge Glenn Whitney says.

He says police there will start issuing $250 find people who, after their first warning It's all about public health and driving. I would number down especially one schooling is scheduled to start in September following us right around the corner with flu season. August, then becomes a very, very critical and Abbott says counties do have the authority. He says. Counties that do not enforce the rules are choosing not to enforce the rule.

Living In A Groundhog Day
"Good morning everybody. It's Iowa Mala and it's Thursday morning July thirtieth. Look. It's low cooler today here. So maybe it's cooling off. Where you are to hope your weather we having nice weather as we enter the end of the summer. Wow I was just thinking. Just a few minutes ago at one of my favorite movies is groundhog day and if you haven't watched the movie. What's the movie because I realized thinking about it We're living in a kind of groundhog. Day. And our temple is in Woodstock. Illinois and that's where the groundhog day movie was made. And so it there's a there's a great affection for Bill Murray and for the making of the movie and Woodstock Has A. GROUNDHOG's Day big festive weekend festival every year. So It's meaningful but. Before I had ever seen it. be a friend of mine. told me. It's the most Buddhist movie I've ever seen in. This is longtime ago when the movie was new. And I had to watch it two times to to get it. I think that was maybe even before I was a Buddhist or. had read anything or I don't know where my mind was when I first saw it. But It's one of those movies I can watch over and over again there are so many beautiful lessons in it and it's so funny and enjoyable it. It's a perfect pandemic movie. So if you I know I know I think now it's even on Netflix's I was looking for about a year ago. To let people know where they could find it and I couldn't find it anywhere on any kind of streaming media. Uh someone just sent a message Glenn Powers He sets my dad was an extra in groundhog day. That's great. So it's part of your family. Lower that's good. People talked about a bill. Murray would F- Baseball Games? For. The. People. And each state and he stayed in Woodstock, stock while the movie was being made. Just, this past year he did commercials in Woodstock that I just accidentally with a few other friends. We were having lunch on the square after. Right after temple on Saturday and. Bill. was shooting commercials so we got to watch him. And just kind of re live and they're the best they were I. Think they were given the best commercial. Honors for the. Super Bowl. You can see the jeep commercials. If you go on Youtube you can see they're just wonderful delightful commercials. So anyway, those little sight stories, but groundhog day is so similar to what we're living through. Now every we can wake up and we don't even know what day of the week it is. And it just keeps going. So I think that was that's what surprised all of us is. What a ride the suspend. An and it still is we don't see really any signs of things. Getting better right now. So if you watch that movie I, it will inspire you. Because, well, you'll see you'll get it when you watch it but That's we you know we all have bumps in the road of adjusting and dealing with a situation that throws us off balance but I'm hoping that most of you have found a reason. To wake up every day and have something interesting you WanNa do or something that you're that you're working on that you never had time to do before or you're getting little projects don you never had time to do before? that. You're taking zoom classes or you're reading or tuning into special classes on you to. We can use. Streaming media and things like. Youtube and things like. Facebook I'm recording this on facebook. We can use all of this stuff that. That before being I was I wanted to be off facebook I had no use for it. Before the pandemic and now I find that it's it's just a beautiful. Communication vehicle so. And I can I can do it. So it's very low tech so That's a good thing too. But. We can discover the good things about maybe technology that we that we didn't feel very good about before. We can. We can stay connected with people, which is now we really understand how important it is. And, we can find out about what's going on all over the world. And we don't have to stay We don't have to stay in the dark about what's really happening. We can investigate things and find out what's going on. So let this be your. Bill Murray Groundhog Day experience, and when you see the movie, If you haven't seen it, you must see it and when you do see at your your understand. and. I think it'll make every day a little bit more bright for you. So. There's so much. We can all be learning and we can be learning to understand just. Almost all of the Buddhist teachings. This is perfect. This is a perfect retreat for us a perfect workshop. And I know a lot of you don't feel like it's a retreat because you're still working and you're still having to deal with things that are scary and frightening and. You're worried about your kids and what we're going do about school and we're all worried about so many things but. I don't want to minimize any of that. But at the same time, this is a time for us to look look inside of us. Find the joy of helping other people find the joy of finding of really understanding. Some of the things that are important to us and the people who are important to us and understanding ourselves. So use it to be. Something that you can look back on and think. I I got a lot of good out of it

"And I think he's probably right to to campaign on the first Fiji tomato the hell. Stein's born is a fantastic know pretending to cut his teeth anywhere before that it was a big swing and for me it really worked. But yes, it's a dreadful category. I think Romney Malik does win that just be an absolute fist playing disaster. The Vevey biasing immediately as well. It won't be Louboutins five about now. I think that what's missing from this category is Clint Eastwood from the meal the which I saw this weekend. He gives an incredible fullness, and I think it's relevant Sisa because of a c Cooper and Eastwood a very kind of entangled master student relationship was one of Cape. His peers nations from. Exactly. Yes. Eastwood was originally going to be doing stars born. And then apparently as this room that Eastwood wanted to keep the release of the meal, pre low key because he didn't want to get in the way of his boy, Bradley Cooper that was from what my colleague Adam told me anyway got that from. But you know, it's another ten helmet. Matt theory, bringing inside a bringing go Sanary, but that would be my addition to spice up this category while moving from one of the more underwhelming lineups to one of the stronger lineups share best actress in a leading role elites ratio for Roma. Glenn Close the wife, the common the favorite lady Gaga stars born Melissa McCarthy for can you? Forgive me. What we think about this lineup. David. Does it make you more excited? This is absolute reverse. Oh, I think that'd be very happy with any of those people winning rating. I mean, they they say it seems pretty tightly fought so far. I would imagine it Glenn clues will. Win on the night, as you know, it would be very bitter. If it didn't happen because of our history. Bitta for everyone. I think it'd be a shame to I would probably cost my for league. I in that category. I think what she doesn't not ruling is is amazing. I would still feel very sad for Glenn. If she didn't win on the night because more does she have to do to to take. I know that's kind of completely contradicts rates before for someone to want someone else to win. But okay. So maybe if I was fourteen Oscars. I would vote for Glenn Close. Even though I think, you know, those five performances separately lady Gaga as the absolute standard standard. But they're all great as he said, I think is interesting because in in the lead both actor and actress you have Glenn Close in the wife of Willem Defoe in attorneys. I think there is a bizarre history in the Oscars of these kind of strange outlined films in which just the performance is kind of plucked from the entire enterprise in nothing else is throwing I I don't believe either of these got any nations. Heavy I think it's a very strange occurrence almost e could have a film season of like these films have had one acting nomination in an absolutely nothing else. I think the films. There's a reason why they haven't going donations by it's very strange how you can have these almost contradictory that you can have a great performance in abandoned. Phil. I mean, I just for me though is all tangled up together. I would like to see a Coleman. Because I think she is palm and enterprise there is there is machinery, and she is poverty, and she's making other elements of the foam work. It's not just working for herself. I guess another film, which I think is great. And we haven't really talked about in terms of whereas its nominations. Mario Hella as best director, and can you forgive me for best picture?

"glenn close" Discussed on The Filmcast
"Although I didn't know anything about it. But I hadn't heard anything about it. Nobody was talking about it as a movie called the wife, and I knew that Glenn Close was in big fan of Glenn Close. And so we popped it in because my mom wanted to see it and I loved it. I loved the wife it is. It's the kind of movie that I really am a ringer for which is it could be a play. It's really very much of just a few locations. Lot of talking just. Beautiful incredible performances. It. It's about the life of these sort of older people one of whom is getting the the Nobel prize in literature. And so then tire movie is about receiving the Nobel prize, which is a topic. I've never seen dramatize before. I just found that whole process fascinating. Because it's something I'd heard about many times, but I've never seen anyone dramatized that sequence of events as that was pretty RAD. And then it also includes flashbacks to earlier in their life, and his it kind of fleshes out this relationship between these two sort of older people later in their life in that you get a really interesting vision into their marriage and their working relationship. It's I I found it fascinating. Beautiful. It made me think it was. I just I loved it. I thought the white. Was fantastic. All right. Well, Glenn Close had one of the most memorable. Reactions at the Golden Globes is here to winning her Golden Globe for the wife to go. See it. She kind of she kind of freaked out because she had no sense that she was going to win. Right. Like, she just didn't even conceive. I think as she was not the favorite from the like, literally, right? She's not part of the film the favorite. She also favorite was the favourite. Right. She she didn't have odds to win and then kind of clinched it. So I've heard great things about her performance. And Jeff, you agree that she's awesome. She's awesome. In johnston. Price is also awesome in it's really a very much a two hander and their dynamic is. So fascinating. You never see a relationship this nuanced, and there's a sort of a hook that comes in kinda late in the game. That is a little gimmicky and interesting, but it doesn't. It ruin or it doesn't even I think bastardize or influence what is really just as beautiful relationship between two people that is full of contradictions. It's it's a relationship of love and of of lifelong devotion. But also a relationship that's had hardships, and is full of anger and resentment and all of the things that, you know, forty fifty year marriage is going to have. And I just thought them dramatizing that and putting that fully fleshed out kind of dynamic on screen was so extrordinary and her performance speaking of Glenn closest performance her performance. I think the reason it is so amazing. I mean, you have this actress Glenn Close who is, you know, she's famous for fatal attraction and. What was the the one just recently the TV show? She did what she was the damage power damages. These extraordinarily powerful, we kid vicious women in certain ways, or or just smart whip smart, and and outspoken, and she's she is Glenn Close is very much this force on screen and has played roles. Like that many many times here, she is constantly describing herself as demure and not wanting the spotlight and wanting to stay in the background and she steps into those shoes so beautifully. It is an extraordinary take from her on being soft-spoken understated and just very different than I've ever seen her before. And I think that may be why she's getting so much attention for it. It's very much. A different kind of role for her. But once she pulls off just beautifully. Well, it's great to hear. I hope to check it out at some point the movies, the wife, and how you sell on screener. Right. You saw it on a on a screen, but I think it's still in limited release right now. So that's the wife anything else watching Jeff. Well, I also ended up by accident. Watching a movie on Hulu think it's a Hulu original documentary about the Dana Carvey show. The short lived Dana Carvey show from the early mid nineties. That who put together. And I was we were watching something on Hulu. I don't even remember what it was and my wife Phyllis leap on the on the couch..

"He's so amazing and such a legend in the UK. But I just don't think that that there's that much recognition here. Now, I mean, academy members presumably know who he is. But like, I think they have they just have more work to do. And then I guess, Richard. I'm curious what you think, you know, does there ever come into to it that whole controversy around a straight actor playing a gay character? Like does that if he does get far enough along does that come into play and become an obstacle for him? I wish that the conversation. Was that far ahead? No. I don't think that really if you know if it's not slowing Rummy Malik, Dan. I don't think you know, you said sneak in there like Glenn Close, Mike. I think that the Richard E grant thing it's like that's a sneak in there. Like, Mark right lands. You know, who to didn't win the globe. And then won the Oscar over was like where the hell dot com from Graham. Did he was up against the lesser Stallone for creed? And. I wanna talk to school, but the kind of conventional thinking for those who pay attention to the industry is that semester stolen is not very well liked in the industry. And so a group of eighty plus foreign journalists say, okay, great here, you go sly, but the academy which is very different body of people. They say, no, no, absolutely not. We don't all know who this British guy is. But he's in that student spillover movie. He's great in it. He's weird. Some of maybe some of the east coast or Simon theater, they're like, okay? You know, I don't know that Richard E grant necessarily has that same profile supporting him, but he has been around a long time. And he's worked with a help wanted people. And I'm going to say one last thing, which is that they need to get with Millon ion goddamn streaming platform. So that all these academy members can watch it Mike, and I keep saying this until this is over I will say this last week. And I watched I watched Gosford Park, which is one of my all time favorites. And that's got a classic Richard E grant performance in it. So you know, check that out. That's that's available on streaming. Okay. Best actress, we've already talked about this a bit Glenn Close, obviously had a huge night last night Libya. Coleman also had a great night, Lydia, not so much. So where where this is all land for you guys in the Coleman gogga close spectrum starting with my Cogan. I think that that was really bad for Gaga. She should she should win the Golden Globe. I think right. That's that's part of the narrative of of somebody like her pop singer coming into this race. And the fact that she didn't I think is rough. I think a lot of us were surprised when stars bar went into the drama category versus the musical comedy. And like I feel fairly confident even though Olivia Colman is a strong contender. The Gaga would have won. If that if a star is born had been categorized properly. You know what I mean? So to put her up again in the drama category. Maybe felt like a bridge too far. I don't know to me live Coleman was in a stronger position than Glenn Close going into this. So actually, you know. Reminder to everyone. What what do we know? But yeah, it felt especially because of the quality of the speech. It just felt that Glenn Close like blasted into the the, you know, top two contention. And it's it now feels more like a it'll be a head to head between Libya Coleman and Glenn Close. But you know, who knows I wouldn't count Gaga out. But I think that there is this kind of underscores some of the issues that I think Gaga has which is you're always in this position. If you're not really an actor or not longtime professional actor of people sort of resenting you coming in. And you know, they want to find out like, what's your what's your angle here? You know, do you actually care about acting or is this just a stunt for you? And I feel like all that baggage. You know, did not get helped last night. Yeah. And also like she she fell into the same crevasse that the Cougars fallen into which is like now, they don't have the speech now. No one they haven't they haven't gotten unstaged or and that's both..

"I don't know if that's like the usual schedule you Mike, and I talked last week about how the schedules a little wonky this year. But I don't know if it's usually like the day after so you've got all these narratives, if you're an Oscar voter fresh off the Globes in your mind, and I think what the Globes can do is cement, certain narratives. And then like I feel more confident ever say that Spiderman into the verse has a real shot at at like upsetting the Disney machine and winning best animated feature. That's a narrative that feels like more cemented to me. There are other narratives that feel cemented. But I think you're right that in terms of best picture for me. It really tells me so little except for to go back to what Mike was just talking about. I think there has been this like. Presumption that a star is born was going to sweep in a lot of categories for a long time that perhaps some of the people involved in the production. Like, some the Murray's that we've been hearing from Hollywood is is maybe the the awards machine irritated that certain people won't play certain games when it comes. And maybe the presumption of winning those categories meant certain people didn't wanna play those games. And maybe less night was sort of a rebuke of that of like, okay, if you won't play are silly award season games than maybe you're not gonna win all the categories. You think you're going to win? I'm very happy to see lady Gago when a globe for best song. I'm very happy. If she wins an Oscar for best song. But in the other caddies, they'll be curious to see if the strategy for a star is born changes after what we saw the Globes last night. Well, yeah, it's funny because I think that as much as Glenn Close winning was an ascendancy. I think that Bradley Cooper saw a major. Loss last night in in in not winning for best actor, you know, comedy musical actor went to Christian bale, and then Rummy Malik won for best actor drama and just kind of looking correct me listeners if I'm wrong on this. But it looks like the last time that a best actor Oscar winner didn't win either the comedy or drama globe was ten years ago when Sean Penn one for milk because there was that whole year of him. And Mickey Rourke kind of Duke it out Mickey work won the Golden Globe. And it's happened a few times in the two thousands where no one expected injury and Brody he came along Russell Crowe winning for gladiator. You know? So I it's a rather for for people. Anyway, it happened a few times, but it's pretty rare. And so rather Cooper not witting last night. Despite the fact that we could say, oh, well, you know, the the categories are divided. You can't really predict the acting prizes. You know, there is precedent for that. So I think that he should be worried if he cares the acting directing category. I mean, I know funds. Onto quarter on was if not the favourite that at least sort of toe-to-toe with Cooper. But the fact that he walked away with like three chances at globe and zero returns, it's not good. It was a bad night for stars porn for. Sure. What is Bradley Cooper working on? Now is he like making another movie he is a Leonard Bernstein bio pic that's been announced. He's got some trapped behind the enemy lines movie that I guess is in pre production. I don't know why he doesn't have at least a little bit of a beard and is not wearing like a cool like rock. Why is he wearing a white suit? But Mike, I don't think that the beard and the hat and this and the disheveled MRs actually him, you know, what that was acting. I know it's not what since we're all playing parts right now to try to win Oscars. You know, like like, but I guess forget it, I'm yeah. I mean, I guess I guess lady Gaga the diligently Dider hair crazy color, like just like Allie. You know? But like Bradley Cooper's at Georgetown. Boy, you know, he's I think a lot closer to the sort of Maryland. Do that you saw in wedding crashers all those years ago. I mean, not not that. But not a jerk like that. But you know, I think he's a little bit more clean cut. And so maybe he was just allergic to like be in Jackson main for another few months..

"We would like to have some really stirring moving speeches, you know, whether they're thinking about it consciously or not that's clearly part of what's going on. And I think the canny winners. No that and of everybody who won Glenn Close was locked and loaded, and she came out there with like, you know, crying, the mascara fabulously, you know, breaking down on a around her is like like giving this perfectly proportioned structured speech that was you know, made you want to see her Oscar speech one hundred percent, whereas some of the other folks, I mean lady Gaga, I really missed her chance with best song because she I think assumed she was going to win best actress, she let Mark Ronson talk the whole time and ended up like inter inter interrupting him that was a weird speech. Peter Farrelly's speech was like, you know, exactly what you don't want to do in terms of accepting for green book, where he kind of loosely thanked a million people and didn't get around to his speech that he had prepared until the music was starting Glenn Close was like, you know, that thing was perfectly structured and crafted to make people think let's give her the Oscar, whereas an Olympic Coleman came out and was charming. And cool and her quirky south. But like Glenn was was not playing. Here's what I'll say about. That is joining you, you, you know, you were getting yourself for asking where you know, where to this narrative come from. I was kind of doing the same thing. I was like you're nuts. I don't think she saved me going to get nominated Glenn Close. And look she's still might not Oscar nominations aren't out yet. But when I watched that speech last night, especially after an evening of a lot of like kind of decisions other elsewhere. I was like, oh, wait I kind of want her to win like I had sort of forgotten that in the kind of excitement of Gaga who analytic Coleman and whoever else, and I was like, oh, it would be great for Glenn Close to win an Oscar. It's been long overdue. She has Mike what you're talking about. Which is I think her reaction was very genuine, but she very quickly mustard herself together and gave a very controlled Norma, Desmond speech. You know, she she really like she like knows how to do that. She is from an old school of of actors who like has that flair that is both. Accessible and open. But very, you know, it's it's high it's high drama. It's you know, she wasn't very like natural. I guess let's also not forget that whereas stars born I think is showing the strain of having to deal with some pretty eccentric people who don't necessarily want to play the Oscar game Glenn Close has Sony Pictures classics behind her right? Tom Bernard and Michael Barker, and they don't have that many horses in the race this year. So you can bet the Tom Bernard. Michael Barker are doing everything possible to make sure that every voter is very aware of Glenn Close of her. You know narrative why this is the year for her making sure they see that movie making sure they understand that you know, like all the reasons why this is so so in terms of the question of why would we talking about going close a it's a fantastic performance. Be like, you know, the these people they're not screwing around either like like. These are professionals who really know what they're doing. So she has a great benefit in that way. The fascinating thing to me about like whether or not the Golden Globes impacts what comes next nominations for the officers start to day..

"I feel like that might work with with the Hollywood Foreign Press, but I feel like the controversies and they're not small they're not like ginned up controversies leg. I would say the stuff that we heard around Selma or stuff like that. Like, these are genuine concerns around these two movies. I don't think they'll survive the Oscar voting process like I'm feel very confident about I think there's a faction in the academy. That would also be receptive to that kind of thinking. But I think that the look the the main thing about both of these movies is that they're artifice surely not artificially, well pretty artificially this year. But they're separated into two best picture groupings that kind of ended up being so weird with the musicals in the drama thing and the comedies like everything was in the wrong place. And so the movies we've been talking about all year as being most likely to win. Best picture are like stars. Born Roma wasn't even allowed to be in either category stars born was in the totally wrong category. Perhaps arguably, and you know, so I don't know. I think it's I think that this probably is like a one night only, you know, sort of hilarious. Bizarre travesty. But what I don't know. What do you guys think? Well, this is always the kind of tricky game with the Golden Globes is you know, we can say at one side of our mouth. Well, they don't really mean anything because it's just the eighty people who have have any people deciding this. So we shouldn't actually looked at it to predict the Oscars and yet from the other side of her mouth burly. But yeah, kind of can in some ways, and I, but I don't think I think this is a weird year where the best picture winners. Probably don't. Actually have a shot of repeating at the Oscars. But again, what do we know? I think the most interesting thing of the evening for, you know, future awards. Prediction was Glenn Close witting in the best actress drama because not only did she come out of a movie that we've got a small release in the summer that had premiered of one film festival a year prior like that was a hard mountain to climb, but she got good reviews for it. But she also gave this really great speech that kind of gathered some of the larger social issue surrounding the orchard together in a nice, rousing concise way. And to me, I feel like she won the Oscar based on that speech. Well, yeah. Okay. Two things ever one. I want you out you both to know. And all of our listeners now that as soon as she won immediately. I heard my own words and little Goldman like a month ago. Whatever thrown back at me where I'm like where are you? Getting this Glenn Close narrative, it's crazy. It has nothing to do. Do with reality. And then I was like oh God to talk about this on the podcast of. But this is so good. And I'm wondering do you feel comfortable sharing some of your unified theories on speech giving at the Golden Globes with with our listener? So to Richards earlier point, I think that the Globes are not super predictive for best picture, although they obviously kind of indicate momentum. And I think the anxiety of voters that they don't want to be wrong is always you have to think about that. When you're watching like if this group of voters give somebody in a ward, another group of voters is going to think maybe we should take that more seriously than we did before. So that's helpful. I guess to rhapsody and certainly green book. But where it's really predictive is that it's an audition. I think for actors and the academy voters are watching thinking we want to have a great show..

"But I always when I read it, I said, yes. And so whatever I said, you, you know, tach my name to it. I want to do it and it came down to, you know, a main to hear how Rowsley sweated land and and all the other producers came on, Rosalie was kind of the driving force. It came down to. They told me that Bjorn was gonna fly over from Sweden. He was directing the death of a salesman on stage. I think it stock, oh, he came over and we had breakfast cafe Clooney just around the corner in the west village. I think we must've spent about two hours together and for me it was just instinctive. It was a you kind of sit there. You're looking at his body language, you're kind of feeling the atmosphere of the person and what he's talking about, how he talks about actors. The fact that he was an accomplished stage director writer, film director. I kind of thought in. I think he is in standing on the shoulders of bagman I think so. I said, yeah, I would like to make this film and with you, had you played? I'm trying to think of all these different counters that we've been talking about. Is there anyone who is revealed in quite the same way? Lot of reviews and things have likened it to peeling an onion, just as we discover so many different layers to character who initially as is kind of headed at in the title you kind of just assume as the archetypal, you know, the way that a lot of movies have traded just the life, and then you realize that that is grossly under crediting her in so many different ways. And I just wonder, you know, in terms of the unfolding of being able to expose those layers of the character had you ever had anything quite like that before now, I don't like to repeat emotional territory in my exploration. I found her very. Tricky. We spent a week around the table of reading, really, really going through the script with a very fine tooth comb me asking me, you know what could seem obvious stupid questions because I had to answer for myself. Why doesn't she leave him? And in the answering that question, I really felt I dug very deep into the character and got to know her and what her journey had been before the time that you see her. I wanna ask you about something that I reference in my little right up after seeing in Toronto, and I know it's weird to quote oneself, but I'm gonna deal because they wanna get your take on this quote in the wake of last November's election and all that has followed. There's something extra moving about watching an older smart and accomplished women who has been wronged by her husband and more ways than one. But nevertheless, by him, quote, a stoic wife with repress rage close quote as the film itself, waking describes closest character come to realize her own worth and stand up for self. In fact, at one point in the middle of the movie, it even caused the audience to break into plus close quote. Obviously, you were making the movie before whatever happened in November of two thousand sixteen. We all know about that. But do you think there there is some deeper resonance to watching this happen to this woman? Yeah. What I love about this movie is that what we ended up creating with a very, very. Close collaboration of all of us. So highly complex, very specific relationship. And I think the more specific you can be funny enough, the more it can universally resonate with people, they will bring to it and take away from it, whatever it is that they have in their life, but it will. It will be an authentic residents and and authentic emotion. So I think this movie in its specificity as very powerful impact there is sort of in this is come up when number of conversations we've done this podcast, not just wives in general, but specifically women and as they get older in life are just increasingly invisible to a lot of society. Right?.

"I believed in the story, but I didn't want it to be a kind of ego trip thing. I I had to convince myself that after all these years and I done it in seventy four, I think was it that far away. I think eighty two eight eighty two. Okay. So. What I did is rug Arcia was on the director, and Matthew Mongol is a great friend of mine's special effects artist, and I called Matthew said, could you have a wack at at making me this character? And I think van Ramsey who had done all the Serafina tall and several other things with me. He got an costume from western costumes and everybody was in on it and have to pay for it was all like this experiment, and I went over to Matthews and somebody brought in a wig short, Mance, wake, and he did something very subtle with the end of my nose with my ear lobes, and gave me a little bit of a plumper in my lower lips and came a point when he was finished. I look in the mirror. My worry was people knew my face a lot, and I thought number one out grown it. And number two will people be distracted by the fact that it's my face, but whatever subtle things Matthew did. I looked up. In it wasn't me anymore, and I started crying because I thought there she is. It was an amazing moment. And so from that moment we really clicked in and the thrilling thing is that Matthew who did Janet and my very subtle, beautiful makeup and designed it, and then mafia convict who had worked with for years did our two wigs, they got nominated for an Oscar. Great for that work. I know you'd mentioned that the costumes were very important in this one too, and also kind of along with the movements very influenced by your choice by one Charlie Chaplin. Right? Yes. How did just in the sense that he was never quite comfortable in his own clothes out in the world. Yes. And I also thought something that there is something about the sad clown, a clown like vibe around Albert. You know, however, she got her suit. She couldn't. It was side wanted the shoes to be little too big in the past a little too long. And it worked and I actually experimented with the I said, would it be funnier for Pence retu- short? And we Charlie Chavan was right, and and I had him very much in mind because I think there was something kind of touchingly humor's sometimes about endure, so that was now twenty three years after that most recent prior nomination. Another one for you number six. And I have to say leading into the next film went ask you that if this isn't number seven, I think the academy should just shut down because what I want to ask you about is a movie that I saw at. I actually at hurt such great things. That I extended my stay at the Toronto film festival last year to see the second screening of the wife, which is a movie directed by Bjorn wrong. And this is adapted from megwatts novel of the same name. You play Joan Casselman woman who begins to reconsider her life choices. After her husband wins the nine hundred ninety two Nobel prize in literature. He is played by Jonathan Pryce and it is awesome. You're particularly shorter in and I felt like watching it, you're just watching a pot of water Boyle and Boyle and Boyle, and you're just in some ways dreading, but you can't turn away to see what's gonna happen when the spoils over. And so without a bunny this time I should add it. So I guess let's first start with how I crush radar. I think I, I heard about it through my agent Franklin latte CA and they had the script went as as any difficult to get made independent film. It went through a lot of.

"To sleep. So we came back the next day and shot it again. It's why I love characters like that because basically it's a speech about how she survived in a world that is totally totally dictated to by men and how most women in her class could be ruined by a word. And she refused to let that happen because when she came out of the convent, she observed and she observed how people used each other and how women were used by men and she refused to let herself be put into that position. She would rather ruin them and she had learned how to ruin them rather than have herself ruined, but the truth. And also the other thing I loved about her is that she loved him. She, he was the love of her life, and I think vice versa until he fell in love with Madame dove. Oh, with Michelle Pfeiffer there. Some connective thread there with the twin, that and elver knobs, right? I mean, another person just. Living as if from a different time and not really marquees mature is very much in control and Albert has no control, right. So is different. I think if anything, it's cousins to line in winter, two people who love each other who basically can't live together just for our listeners to keep score at home. We mentioned your first three film roles. You got us nations. Then there was again fail traction end dangerous liaisons meaning five in seven years, which is something only Bette Davis. Greer Garson Merrill have ever achieved. It's a pretty amazing thing, but then you go almost right into another very complex part with reversal of fortune sunny von Bulow life of Klaus. And this seems tricky because a lot of different things could have gone wrong hair, and you've talked about the fact that maybe not written with as much detail certain other characters you had to really kind of put your own spin on that one right. Brilliant script by Kazan just the fact that someone in a coma narrates the story just wonderful writing. So I knew I wanted to do it. What I found difficult is that sunny von Bulow at the time was still alive in Presbyterian medical center surrounded by flowers and Persian rugs, and the best care possible and know everyone was incredibly protective of her. So there was nobody who was an intimate friend of hers or even, you know, an acquaintance who had talked to me about her. So as really there's a script is is is very much from a man's point of view, but it was a great character and I took it, you know, there's certain scenes that you look forward to. I love the scene. I don't think she has any lies where she has her dark glasses on. She's eating ice cream and smoking a cigarette as a diabetic, killing herself in plain view. And also I had my my beloved Jeremy to play with Dr. Arns. You did. Something at that point in your career when when things were as hot as they could be in Hollywood, of course, and you chose to go back to Broadway, not long after those films that we've just been talking about to go and do two different Broadway productions that both turned out very nicely Tony's for both in wonderful the play death mate in in nineteen ninety two in the musical Sunset Boulevard in nineteen Ninety-four. What drove those decisions to go and do those? I mean, people talk about always has actresses get into their forties. They find fewer choice rolls or whatever that didn't seem to be the case for you or playing along. And then when you came back continue to do so. So was it just that there was something about those particular opportunities in Broadway that we're just resistible to you working with Mike Nichols? Yeah, turn that down and we've been together in the real thing. Mike as everyone knows was genius and it. It was an intriguing play. I played a woman who had been tortured and South America, and she thinks one day that she, here's the voice of her torturer whose car has gotten a flat tire. And the husband goes to the so and I was working with Gene Hackman and Richard Dreyfuss and might nickel. But it's really funny that because I think I remember I remember I think even imprint people say, oh, too bad. She can't get jobs and film. So she's coming back to theatre, look what people are doing now. And I always have said the English do it..

So called up herald, I went in and and he gave me some very simple things to do. I went back and got the part and then thirty years later made it into the movie screen. We'll we'll come to that. I guess also people don't realize that somebody who is as you know, revered in an actor as yourself would still continue to work with a coach through it all. It's not like you're done learning at some point. I actually would use Harold and I didn't. I didn't use him terribly much in the last, like I'd say, fifteen years or so, but. Where he was incredibly valuable for me is that I basically, I'm a shy person in the strange thing that happens when I'm confronted with a character like the marquees boy or is that I get shy in front of that character. And so what I would do with herald is force myself to speak out to say things as that character until I would get over that that shyness, it's a strange thing. He was wonderful and sorely missed, will you were in terms of your film career, even even though you may be started later than some you've made up for lost time quickly.

For nomination. That one, I think you've, I hope you're joking because you're under cutting your own contributions that you give a lot of credit for that to Caleb day Chanel. Kind of the iconic shot from that movies when she stands up in the stands and they had designed this wonderful hat that the setting sun would shine through that look gave me this kind of Ingela glow and Caleb, they actually shot it when the sun was coming through the slit in the back of the stadium. It was very thought out and I think that helped a lot. Thank you. I think that whole concept of seeing you as and Djelic or as an earthy kind of person based on these early characters was something that you maybe were a little frustrated by. Right? Because I think that it's limiting, probably if you want to show that you can do other things. And so I wonder how much that had to do with your being drawn to both jagged edge. Nine hundred ninety five where he played one of the first female lawyers that I think has shown up in popular entertainment. And then of course, in fatal attraction two years after that as a much sexier character then you'd been allowed to play up to that point, right? Yeah. I love the character in jagged-edge because I remember thinking that she was a very good lawyer not such a good mother, and I was very much drawn to the fact also that Bob loggia played this wonderful crusty cynical detective. It was a really winning combination. And then of course. Jeff bridges, but the thing that made me proud, Anne Roth, designed some killer suits for that character. And there was one suit that I think of her is the iconic suit of the movie was beautiful, navy, blue suit with a kind of a pencil skirt and a in a white shirt, and it was the eighties of a huge shoulders. But after that, the successive that movie l. a. law came out and Susan Dey was just exactly like that character created the Arkansas. And I remember people saying they didn't know if a movie would fly with a woman at, you know, starring as a as a lawyer will help out a woman starring as a publishing executive and spurn lover. That was, you were very enthusiastic about playing this part, but not everyone else involved with initially was right. You have to kind of win that fraternity. Well, thank God. I didn't know how much. They didn't want me and Sherry Lansing has since written about it in her book..

"So I was called in to read for Jenny fields in the world according to garp, had you also previously had one less pleasant interaction with the director? I read that would may be screened tested or something for one other filmmaker before that. And there was some commentary about, you know, your your face moves to. Who was that? I think that was militia form. Yeah. So he blew that call. That was a little hard to know how to respond. What What do you do you do. do. All right. So you get this first part as as the nursing mother of ROY, William's character world, Korean garp. How concerned were you about now having to act for the first time in front of film cameras? I think you've done some TV stuff, but to be in front of film cameras, not to mention having to age something like thirty years over the course of two hours. Were you intimidated? I was worried because I had heard how difficult the transition was from stage to film. And I went up to George ROY hill and said, I've heard this the difficulty and he said. Is that I hope you'll take care of me and he did. I somehow thought that when I saw the family all be the back of my head or someone's face as I was talking. But it was really trial by fire and I didn't at I really know what to do in my energy in close up. I was used to projecting to the back of the theater and it's a whole different adjustment. As far as your energy, I think you said that it was really during the your second film as Surcouf in the big chill that you kind of figured out that you can do a lot less on film because it's picked up, right? You have to close up, which doesn't exist in any other art form and thought becomes very powerful. And was there actually one scene in the big show where you realize that? Yeah, it started. I was, you know, pausing silence and fought is when I'm talking about my fair with Alex, that Kevin Costner character who only showed up as a mummy court. Yeah, it was in that scene that I realized thinking in a close up is very powerful and also pausing, I tend to speak fast. And a lot of times this is an exercise. I will just force myself even now to go slower. And in that going slower, you can find more moments in between those two film. So somewhere in eighty two, I think you did another off Broadway show that I think you didn't initially get, but eventually did, and then would revisit all these years later. And that, of course is Albert knobs and I want to ask you because it sounds like you also from that frustrating initial audition came away with an acting coach that you worked with until not long before his death earlier, I guess just two months ago, this is Harold busking. Now Casca. What led you. To reach out to him and what was his well approach? I loved this story about a woman who is disguised as a man as a Butler in Victorian Ireland, but to go in and audition for part like that plane, a woman, disguised man. I, you know, I did some sort of preparation, but I went in and I just felt I was terrible. So I stopped. And I said, I'm boring myself, so I must be boring. You and I'm just gonna go home. My agent heard later that that was the most interesting thing that had happened. And asked me to come back. Meanwhile, I was not a good audition or I would try to keep myself on this knife edge. And if anything happened, things started slipping away. I had no no ability to kind of bring it back..

"Away, and that was kind of like a folk music hall up with people. And what would you guys do? We sang songs and we, you know, had our little traveling outfits and we'd run and be very enthusiastic. And you know, very conservative. It was the youth arm of moral rearmament. And I finally convinced point where I had to break out, so I went to college and so at at twenty two, I know you, you start at college William and Mary, and I wonder if you can share, I guess that's probably a little older than many of your classmates there. Right? Because they're probably starting seventeen eighteen, but it sounds like the saving grace in a way with was the guy Howard scam in the for Camden. Here's the head of the theater department, and I always knew that I wanted to be actress from a very early age. I loved early Disney films, and I wanted to knock on Disney stores. I could do that and getting being move. So I auditioned for the first play of that year, which was twelve night. And I got cast and for the next four years, he was my mentor a read that there was something I think that happened during your senior year where you caught addict cabinet interview of Catherine Hepburn. What was that of? Yes, yes. Yes. Always painting scenery backstage at night, and there was a little television on and it was on came dick cabinets interview the her only interview on television with Katherine Hepburn, and I was riveted absolutely riveted. I've always, I always respected Hepburn. She seemed so much your own person and I just loved, you know, her whole body of work and everything, and I watched and then something in me, kind of penny dropped and said, if you wanna do that, you do it. And the next day I went to the head of the department professors, Gammon doctors gamut, and he nominated me for two national organizations. You are TA and TC g. and. Got to the finals and ended up with my first job on Broadway in the fall. Well, so really, right out of school year heading to New York in on broadly, I was going to go to LA. I was I'd been dating an actor who grew up as a child actor and I was going to Peggy fury's acting class, and I already had a little fabulous little apartment off Luciana. And then when I got that job, it really changed the direction of my life. I would have started out here in LA. You know, some people go out into the professional world with a very clear idea. I'm going to be a stage actor. I'm going to be a screen actor. You were open to either. Yes. And when I got actually hired, that was where I went on, I think that was actually a great blessing to have my training on the theater, and I think it was six years before I got my first fell. Well, it seems like your first show was in seventy four and then six years later is the. Yeah, the show that you're nominated for your first. Tony for Barnum nineteen eighty. And in that time you did six shows in those first six years. So were you happy if things had just continued that way because you by nineteen eighty year into your thirties? Now, you know, it would be later than usual. It was later than usual, start a screen career. If things had just continued with doing great work and noted productions in New York on and off Broadway, would you have been happy camper Harley depending on my growth as an artist. And if I got wonderful roles kept, I felt kind of pushing them vote for me. So what was it that actually did happen? I guess at one performance of Barnum in which you were playing MRs p.t Barnum that led to the first film opportunity. Well, the great George, ROY hill and his casting director Marion Dougherty really pioneered the casting director role. They were in the audience. And the show started with me sitting quite serenely in about ni above the stage knitting. And there's some George told me later that it was that silence that kind of stillness that he that he liked..

And it sounds like you had a pretty unconventional early youth certainly between the ages of seven and twenty two, and I just wonder if you can elaborate a little bit on what was going on in your life and how you think it shaped you? Oh, my so we lived in back country, Greenwich. So I mean, we could have been literally Iowa. We had a wonderful. My grandfather's farm that we ran around in and when I was seven, my parents met this group called moral rearmament and they were, I think, what you would call.

"You're ready to play. All right, I, let's hear from Mr Adam Felber sure it's expensive to get there. But when you finally make it to Euro Disney and you're standing in front of Cinderella's castle, and you see the looks on the faces of young horse and little Greta, they reach out to shake the hand of Mickey Mouse. It's all worth it. That is until a dude runs up from behind rips. Mickey's head off in screams don't bow is a lie. That scene has been playing itself out all summer as radical animal rights group untamed has made it their business to infiltrate the magic kingdom and unmasked Disney's beloved, Matt.

And now that the dolphin has made the first move in the relationship, a little freaked out by it. A kayaker said it jumped over his head one female bay. There had to be rescued by a boat because the dolphin wouldn't let her swim back to the beach. And another guy claimed to have been confronted by the dolphin, which seemed anxious to interact. The comments have an undercurrent of unwanted sexual advances from the dolphin. No allegations of far the dolphin paying hush money. Frisky dolphin, shall we say, keeping swimmers out of the water ought to be addressed. Story of somebody summer just falling apart comes from Roxanne Roberts. The only thing Ladimir Putin likes better than subverting democracies is taking off his shirt. Quote when I'm on vacation, I see no need to hide in the bushes. He told an Australian journalist in June. So popular is the longtime president that one hundred twenty five, Russian tourists paid the equivalent of twenty five hundred dollars each for last week's Siberian. Safari at a rustic resort in the remote region where Putin spends every summer the hunt of this safari was to spot and photograph Putin. Bare-chested and expectations were high quote. I was so sure. I would see him in the flesh. Juliane throw ver- told local reporters. I was so excited to see my hero. But alas, it was not to be quote. We spotted him from a distance, but he was wearing a jacket and a hat explained. I couldn't believe it. It ruined by vacation. Apparently, no one saw Putin half-naked some of the disappointed tourists speculated that. Putin had put on weight this spring and hid the fact and custom suits. The only winners in this scandal Moscow newspaper, which have dubbed this scandal, the latest Russian cover up. I was really perfect, but it wasn't for what group of people was it from Adam. Kids who went to Euro Disney only to see their beloved characters, beheaded by animal activists from Paula bathers in Brest France who couldn't go in the water because of an amorous dolphin or from Roxanne tourists who paid big bucks to see their beloved President Putin shirtless, but never got the chance which of these is the story of a summer vacation ruined.
