Quote: "We had a little Brimstone baby! The funny thing is, the first job I did after having a baby was a film in Australia with the director of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert (Stephan Elliott), called Flammable Children, which also sounds appropriate!" New dad Guy Pearce is amused by the non-child-friendly films he has been working on in recent months. He found love with Game of Thrones star Carice Van Houten on the set of the new fantasy thriller Brimstone and the couple welcomed a son named Monte in August (16).
Fact: Actor Guy Pearce is set to hit the stage with Powderfinger star Darren Middleton as part of the Adelaide Fringe Festival in Australia in February (15). The Memento star's new album Broken Bones has just been released.
Quote: "He's just this megastar. I don't know if he struggles with feeling like a valuable actor, as I did, but he shouldn't... He's amazing. On the second day he was doing the scene where he falls out of the truck and he's sitting there bleeding and I was watching it on the monitor. I looked at (director) David (Michod) and said, 'Wow, he's really good, isn't he?'" Guy Pearce was impressed with Robert Pattinson's acting skills on the set of new movie The Rover.
Quote: "I'd like to go on a spaceship with the three Kates: Kate Bush, Kate Winslet and my wife, Kate. I did some steamy scenes once with Kate Winslet. The scenes were fine - it was the going home to my wife afterwards that was the tricky bit." Actor Guy Pearce names the three women he'd like to launch into space with.
Quote: "They're c**p. I wouldn't go and see them. You see a rough cut of the film when you do your post-sync... and then you see it again at, like, the premiere or a preview screening... and then you'll probably see it a third time somewhere along the way, so by the time the film comes out, you're done." Actor Guy Pearce never pays to see his films.
Quote: "I got to have sex with Kate Winslet many, many times and I didn't realise it was gonna result in this! So Kate, I share this with you - because you're an extraordinary woman, thank you for allowing me to insert myself into the world of Mildred!" Australian actor Guy Pearce sends a cheeky shout-out to his Mildred Pierce co-star Kate Winslet after claiming the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Miniseries Or A Movie.
Quote: "Kate Winslet makes sex scenes fun. She's done plenty of them. For me, it was going home to my wife after the scenes that was the tricky bit. She was all right with it, though - she said if it had to be anybody, she was glad it was Kate Winslet." Guy Pearce enjoyed his raunchy scenes with the British actress in Mildred Pierce.
Quote: "Guy Pearce was my teen heart-throb as Mike in Neighbours. I'd fake illness to stay off school to watch him." Kate Winslet was delighted to land her teen idol as a co-star in TV miniseries Mildred Pierce.
Quote: "Someone said to me, 'Wow, best Andy Warhol performance in the worst Andy Warhol movie ever'. Oh, well." Guy Pearce is proud of his turn as the artist in FACTORY GIRL.
