Harry Dean Stanton: 'Life? It's one big phantasmagoria'
Guardian (UK) - about 3 years
The wine, the women, the song… The great Harry Dean Stanton talks to Sean O'Hagan about jogging with Dylan, Rebecca de Mornay leaving him for Tom Cruise and why Paris, Texas is his greatest film Harry Dean Stanton is singing "The Rose of Tralee". His wavering voice echoes across the rows of people gathered in the Village East cinema in New York, where a special screening of a new documentary about his life and work, Partly Fiction, has just finished. You can tell that the director, Sophie Huber, and the cinematographer, Seamus McGarvey, who are sitting beside him, are used to this sort of thing from Harry, but the rest of us are by turns delighted and a little bit nervous on his behalf. Now that he's 87, Stanton's voice is as unsteady as his gait, but he steers the old Irish ballad home in his inimitable manner and the audience responds with cheers and applause. "Singing and acting are actually very similar things," says Stanton when I ask him about his other talent, having seen him ...

E. Nina Rothe: The 'Trishna' Interviews: Freida Pinto on Acting, Beauty and the Importance of Saying No
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Each time I interview Freida Pinto I grow more in awe of her. At an age when her peers are busy getting on TMZ, she is instead a classic beauty, with great wit and a timeless sense of style. Whether in a green Dior strapless dress, at the 2010 Doha Tribeca Film Festival, or wearing a white cotton and silver sequin top by Rohit + Rahul at this year's Tribeca Film Festival, Pinto is ever chic, cool and collected. And she commands attention with her thought-out statements and self-assuredness, all the while allowing her sultry looks to melt down the defenses of even the most weathered film journalists in the bunch. When I sat down with Pinto this past April, while she was in NYC promoting her upcoming release Trishna, she was candid about playing a modern-day Tess of the D'Urbervilles as a lower-caste Indian in Michael Winterbottom's re-interpretation of the Thomas Hardy novel. Pinto of course may have had some sexy shoes to fill, considering that her director admits to ha ...
