INTERVIEW WITH RICHARD E GRANT
Congratulations! This is a great morning for you.
Thank you. Incredible. I am absolutely amazed. I’m levitating! I never thought something like this would happen in my life. I am absolutely amazed. I can’t hide it.
You’ve had a good awards season so far, right?
Yes. This is my first time in the season if you want, but I never thought it would happen.
Tell me more about how you feel right now. How did you know?
I’m in the Cotswolds in the countryside in England. I was having lunch with my wife and got a call from my agent in London. It was quite a noisy restaurant so I heard her shout and the people in her office shout ‘congratulations’ at the same time. I was upset, I didn’t know what was going on. And then they said, ‘Oh, you’ve been nominated for a Golden Globe.’ Since that call, my phone hasn’t stopped pinging, texting, tweeting and Instagram. It has been an avalanche of good news, for which I am very grateful and amazed.
I loved your performance in Can You Ever Forgive Me? Can you tell me how to find Jack’s character?
There was very little in the memoir Lee Israel wrote, but the script by Nicole Holofcener and Jeff Whitty and the direction of Marielle Heller made it very, very clear. They filled his background a lot. At first he is dying of AIDS, so this meant that all the scenes and the joie de vivre he brought about trying to live his life during the day, for the day, for the day, were always undermined by the sense that, for him, he could. be the last.
I think it’s a good thing that you only eventually find out that that’s what’s happening to him, so you don’t judge anyone. I have a friend who recently passed away who made a point of not telling anyone, so as not to be stigmatized by all of his, you know, as someone who is dying. So I thought it was a good handle or key to play Jack.
Jack and Lee have this weird, weird chemistry. They feel like a strange couple.
Yes. They are, exactly. I drew great inspiration from the 1970s movie Midnight Cowboy, with Jon Voight and Dustin Hoffman having this … they are two people on the wrong side of the tracks that form this platonic, co-dependent relationship and are nearly destitute in one of the richest cities and densely populated places on the planet. The friendships that are formed in that circumstance, where it is not the glossy version of Manhattan. This made it interesting and gave it great texture. You go through all the stages of friendship from loyalty to final betrayal and then to reconciliation, which is very touching because they both know she is dying but they don’t really talk about it in so many words.
I also loved that the reconciliation scene happened to Giulio. It is one of my favorite places in New York.
Yes. It is also the oldest gay bar in New York. It was very generous of them to allow us to film there, considering that these two people are not the most morally upright and clean people. The fact that no judgment on this, fair due to them for allowing them to shoot there.
I felt like these two weren’t going to be in Stonewall, or somewhere that seemed more trendy. Julius was like the perfect place.
Yes. I absolutely agree.
