Scarlett Johansson: 'Social Media Causes Issues In Industry'


Scarlett Johansson Kirsten Dunst Natalie Portman

The 31-year-old actress has been in front of the camera for around two decades and is still going strong today, with several projects including animated movie Sing in the pipeline. There's been a great deal of change in the industry since she started out, with A-listers now being targeted on their every move by the press and the public through the Internet - something Scarlett is horrified by.

"You know, I didn't grow up in the glare of social media. That stuff wasn't an issue when I was a teenager," she explained to U.S. OK! magazine. "I remember watching MACaulay Culkin dealing with (the media), but it was because he had that Shirley Temple effect (and) he was making so much money. That was a very unusual situation.

"I was in the generation of Kirsten Dunst and Natalie Portman, a little bit younger, but none of us were dealing with that, the way young stars are (today). Watching it snowball into what it has become today, it's so disturbing."

Midnight Special Review

Excellent

Gifted director Jeff Nichols takes on another genre in his fourth film with actor Michael Shannon, after Shotgun Stories, Take Shelter and Mud. This one's an involving character-based sci-fi adventure made in the style of classic films like E.T. or Close Encounters. As the characters are thrown into an extraordinary situation, the story gradually reveals its fantastical secrets without resorting to the usual overblown blockbuster formula, which makes the movie remarkably resonant and genuinely thrilling.

Shannon plays Roy, a man who is on the run across Texas with his 8-year-old son Alton (Jaeden Lieberher) and his childhood friend Lucas (Joel Edgerton), who's now a state trooper. And the FBI is on their trail, investigating the religious cult they escaped from. Led by the defiant Calvin (Sam Shepard), the cult seems to have been centred around the unusual ability Alton has to gather information from government satellites. Which is why the FBI is so intent on tracking him down. Working with the FBI, NSA Agent Sevier (Adam Driver) is fascinated by Alton's abilities, and he begins to worry what might happen if the boy is captured. Meanwhile, Roy and Lucas have reunited with Alton's mother Sarah (Kirsten Dunst) and are continuing their journey across the American South. And time is clearly of the essence, since Alton is growing seriously ill.

Writer-director Nichols skilfully keeps the audience gripped by the central mystery, dropping in hints and revelations along the way that slowly build up to the final big picture. This forces the viewer into the same perspective as the characters, who don't have a clue what's going on but are gripped by the possibilities of what they're witnessing. This also makes it impossible to predict where the story might go next as it cycles through action, humour, emotion and exhilarating drama. Through all of this, the actors all offer beautiful textures in their characters, underplaying even the most intense scenes to make them feel strikingly realistic.

Kirsten Dunst: 'It's A Lot Harder Doing Tv Than Movies'


Kirsten Dunst

The 33-year-old actress made her name on the big screen in movies such as Interview with the Vampire, Bring It On, The Virgin Suicides and her latest offering, Midnight Special.

But last year (15), Kirsten tried her luck on the small screen, playing Peggy Blumquist in the second series of hit show Fargo. The role earned her a Golden Globe nomination and remains one of the proudest moments of her career.

However, Kirsten admits starring in a television series is an entirely different kettle of fish to shooting a movie.

Kirsten Dunst Garrett Hedlund Jake Gyllenhaal

The 33-year-old actress has been dating her On The Road co-star Garrett since 2012 and thinks it's their similar priorities that has led to them having such a successful romance.

"I feel like we're good at doing our own thing but also at coming together," Kirsten, who dated Jake Gyllenhaal from 2002 to 2004, told Britain's InStyle magazine. "In other relationships... Just we were too enmeshed. We had to do everything together.
