Secrets of their pasts (including one involving Sarah Paulson) and subsequent mixed-fortune adulthoods spill out, making for a mix of catharsis and nostalgia that redefine relationships.
Film Review: ' Fairhaven' The Hollywood Reporter: The movie starts with a Tom Brady TV interview, in which he questions whether, even with all his success: "Is this it?
” But at this point in my life, I feel very grateful for where I am. I think as an actor, you’re constantly putting yourself out there, and a lot of times failing -- and failing in front of a bunch of people -- and sometimes you have a good moment and something clicks.But it wasn't Jennifer Garner's dress that was the main focus of attention at the glitzy award ceremony in Los Angeles.The actress, 45, sent social media into meltdown when cameras caught her pulling a bewildered facial expression in what appeared to be an epiphany moment.We always knew we would struggle for financing, so instead of spending years and years and years of struggling of financing, we kept it as small as possible, so we needed the least amount [of money].THR: It’s a character-driven movie, so I imagine you filmed many more scenes than what ended up in the final cut. Messina: Tom was in the editing room with his editor, and they really cracked open the movie there in New York. We kind of worked on the editing, the same way we worked on the writing.THR: Funny that Mark Duplass is doing the show; you’re both so ubiquitous.Messina: I love that he’s on there, and whenever we have a scene to do, it’s a ball. There have been a couple of articles that people have written about the two of us and comparing our year and whatnot, and I always feel really lucky to be in an article next to him, a list next to him.And sometimes things that don’t make it in, they’re really fun scenes or stuff that meant a lot to you or you thought were really funny or really moving, but ultimately if they don’t move the story along or serve the story, you have to say goodbye to it. I’m being forced to rest, but I haven’t done much resting, and I’m not complaining because it certainly hasn’t always been like this.Some of those things were hard to say, and some of them are jarring; you look at them and say, "That has to go." I know we loved it when we shot it, and we thought it was great, but it’s not. There’s been a lot of times that I thought I’d never work again; I was really bummed out.I won’t lie to you; there’s a lot more to do, I have a lot more to say and a lot more places I want to go, but I’m very fortunate I ended up here at this moment in time. So it’s constantly a roller-coaster ride, and I think even the greatest, biggest movie stars, as human beings, are constantly going, "Maybe I’m not all that, maybe I need to fix this or that." So I think no matter who you are or how successful you are, you’re going to be questioning as long as you’re from the planet Earth. I grew up in Long Island, and at first I went to Manhattan and Brooklyn and Queens and then I moved out west.THR: Do you think it’s a misconception that actors have it all and don’t have the existential crises that everyone else does? THR: In , your character goes home but isn’t that excited about it. So when I go home, it’s that feeling that I think most people have when you drive down a certain block and remember making out with a girl in a car on that block, and you drive past your best friend’s house, but they’ve torn it down. There’s a lot of ghosts there, and it’s sometimes really nice to visit them, and maybe sometimes painful, but ultimately it’s who you are and where you came from. Which is ultimately the way that I like to work and am best suited.
