Ginnifer Goodwin, Contrary to the insistence of the second hand of her title, “Something Borrowed” is something new for the careers of two women at its center, actress Ginnifer Goodwin and producer Molly Smith Mickler.
Goodwin is a popular screen presence and family, thanks in large part to its role in the recently concluded HBO series “Big Love.” However, “Something Borrowed” is the first showcase role in a movie. Although the second peak at more established Kate Hudson (Oscar-nominated actress for “Almost Famous”), the focus in this romantic comedy is full of Goodwin, who is in almost every scene of the film.
“I definitely put too much pressure on myself when I got the role,” said Goodwin, 32. “I’ve never been in almost every frame of a movie before. I’ve always considered myself a character actor. I never thought of myself as an actress, so it was nice to experience that.”
For Smith, 30, “Something Borrowed” is important because it is the first film project that developed from start to finish, from purchase of the rights to the beloved Emily Giffin “chick-lit bestseller to what he and 35 million for the screen production.
Smith is recognized as an executive producer of “The Blind Side” and as producer in the 2007 romantic drama “PS I Love You”, but those films – also an adaptation of the books – had been in development before she got involved.
By contrast, Smith purchased the 2004 book specifically for her own production company 2S Films, which is operated with two-time Oscar winning actress and “PS I Love You ‘star Hilary Swank.
“Something Borrowed” is the story of a young “good girl” attorney, Rachel (Goodwin), who begins an affair with seemingly real man about to marry her best friend of all life, Darcy (Kate Hudson), output, spotlight-stealing party girl.
If Rachel – that before this issue had been a follower of the “orderly, good path two shoes”, according to the book – to be loyal to her friend or faithful to your feelings? If you choose not betraying her girlfriend, is she betraying?
“I have to say, I never called myself a” chick-lit “fan,” said the dwarf Goodwin. “I’m more of a school-girl reading the list. I like my Henry James.
“But then I was offered the role, I read the book because I wanted to see how to materialize this character was, and I could not put it down. It is so salacious and fun, and it became my guilty pleasure of the 24 hours that led me to read “.
The novel inspired by a fervent fan base that has been both cautious and excited about the movie. Most fans seem to agree that Goodwin is a good choice for Rachel. In fact, the actress had been suggested for the part relating to Internet chat rooms before she was cast.
“I honestly never had so many people come up to me in the street and say they are excited about a movie that has to leave because they are so obsessed with the source material,” said Goodwin.
The frequent presence on the set of the film, Giffin said that when he first saw the character Goodwin, wearing jeans and a white sweater, and had the wig Raquel, and I honestly had this moment when I thought, ‘That is the character I created. ”
“It’s hard for me to call it a” romantic comedy, ‘”Goodwin said, using the colloquial abbreviation” romantic comedy. “I’ve been calling a” rom with some strategically placed laughs. It’s really dirty or messy. The challenge is make these cute characters. ”
Career-wise, the protagonist of Goodwin in “Something Borrowed” is the end of the drama of cable polygamy “Big Love”, which Goodwin co-starred for five seasons as a child initially Margene, the youngest of the three women Bill Paxton character.
“The end of” Big Love “was the end of an era for me,” said Goodwin, whose film career includes roles in “Mona Lisa Smile”, the recent “Beezus and Ramona” and the Johnny Cash biopic ” Walk the Line. ”
I could go right back into the television series: She is what she describes as a “bad ass” version of Snow White in the ABC-TV pilot “Once upon a time,” a planned series of fairy tale postmodern creators of “Lost.”
