I'm doing good this has to be an interesting time for you because I know you've been promoting the movie in New York you here in LA you're about to do your first comic-con what's this last week been like for you or what's this what's what are you in the middle of these I've done them before so basically out the routine is becoming else nothing but your jet-lagged when you are doing press the chances are the journalist is as well most people are
00:33
not on their own time zone you know obviously fly to New York and you do a cha-cha they they're on their times but the junket people are under the same pressures you are and are getting by on caffeine and whatever else and so basically the rest of the world you know they may or may not realize is that everything that is being said about films generally is being said about people who are strung out on caffeine the wrong time so it's like you know what's interesting is that I do a lot of
01:05
set visits now I have been for the last few years and I've learned that when you're on set there's just a random fact that learned when you on set you are talking about the movie you're think you're making and when you're doing the junket you're talking about the movie that it actually is there's a huge difference I will resist any you can't always win this battle but I always resist and talking about a film when I'm in the middle of it it's it's often called for and demanded and asked over that I hate to do it and it's partly because I know I'm not going to make any
01:37
sense even less than I normally do give in the middle of it you don't quite know what's working what's not working you may not even have a coherent way to express what you're trying to do at that point Bernie you know it's a very strange nebulous craft acting you you're giving yourself over to somebody else it's words and you're pretending to be somebody else and you know I'm used to
02:09
that but it's I find it in East helpful time to step out and start to try to get an overview of what I'm doing I'm in the middle but the other thing is that and a lot of people don't acknowledge this there's such an in the final edit the final screenwriting moment is the editing room so like you could be also delivering the performance a few different ways and you don't know don't know what's coming out in the wash exactly and you don't even before it gets as far as the can let alone the
02:40
editing room what you do what you intend when someone says action what actually comes out isn't necessarily an exact science either I mean it's if you have if you have any spontaneity and if the person opposite you have said its functionality and if there's anything real going on there little accidents that occur you know it isn't you have to leave room for a bit of the random you're open to things and so it doesn't happen according to to programming you
03:10
know and so you're you're open to yours you have a plan for things you've learned a lot it is written most of the time but the way it's applied I think you you within the structure you want some freedom and so and then on top of that you're just going to be edited and there's gonna be music cue which gives it a different tone than the one you might have expected etc etc so it another very compelling reason to wait until it's done before you talk about it is that I can look up there on the
03:41
screen and I can tell you that everything that's up there is what I intended to do if I give away my intentions beforehand then I get busted on you know mission not accomplished 90% I know K Christian bill doesn't like the new interviews on onset but he'll promote the movie when he's he will do interviews actually on dark night he did he talked to us on a day he wasn't filming but days he is filming he doesn't like to depress I think it makes perfect sense I didn't is anything precious on your application I just mean
04:13
it's I just I think it's its practicality totally I told I don't mean whatever an actor needs to do to be in the moment I think that they should be allowed to do in this you know so it's not just about being in the moment because what I'm talking about here it's not just about reacting the work it's actually about making any sense tool I was comparing two different things but let me jump into why I get to talk to each day which is where my favorite filmmakers Woody Allen and I mean I love his work and he's such he's an amazing filmmaker when you first found out when
04:45
he how did you get involved in this project it he call you did you hear through the grapevine grapevine first and he doesn't as far as I know call anybody I've just been at the first conference with the other actors hearing and their stories about how they got approached and I hear tales of 3-minute meetings yeah I've heard 15-second meetings yeah no he doesn't like to drag these things out at all and it's a doesn't he doesn't audition people I don't think he doesn't have them read he works with the help of
05:17
an exceptional casting director Juliette Taylor who's very for many years now I think as has an extraordinary instinct and and I think that they collaborate in finding the best people but never the encounter with Woody Allen is it seems to me as he'll tell you he would like you to be in his film and that's about it and I was sent the script I was I was
05:51
in Italy I have a home and I a sentence good had to be driven to me by hand and hand it to me and that person didn't had to wait while I read it and I'm not the quickest reader in the world so if there was a better sense of pressure even though that person was trying to apply any pressure you won't feel judged on how slow going this was and I was very compelled I mean I was slightly daunted I it came as a big surprise to me with the iron withers if you'd ask me at any
06:22
time in my career since even before it started as a teenager who who the directors you must want to work with in your life if they've ever been three you would have been on the list and so after all these years to suddenly hear that you know I was up was wonderful and attentive see this script was every time and under the words Stanley was this huge amount of ink and
06:53
I never had so much to say in anything in my life and some of it is monologue something I'm some it's it's not a dialogue have you seen some of these are soliloquy literally alone in a row where for those few minutes who you are on carrying the film and so it was a one aimed at one felt honored lattice fee to get to be entrusted with that but very nervous well I know that what he doesn't like to do rehearsal and I know it's a
07:25
he likes to shoot ninety five is that you know he it's a very tight ship what was it like to work in that we didn't get that a lot of the things I'd heard about how would he works proved not to be true some did with is the fact he doesn't matters we proved to be true but we'd also heard he doesn't direct that was not true he was a very engaged meticulous and very verbal director and got right in and getting or lastly sure
07:56
he doesn't chat and he doesn't socialize with me anyway he may shoot some of his stuff I was told not to expect him to be funny he's very shy he probably won't be out there cracking jokes but he was very funny you know just in the course of giving you direction and those he was funny but the nine-to-five thing I'd heard that and I was very much that's very optimistic time is liking it but
08:27
they were said to do with the lighting and to do with the way darius country shoots all the hair out of the photography it's the the famous Magic Hour but the delight that they were looking for is at its best at in morning and then you have to wait until after four o'clock pretty I it's best again and so no you there was a hole in the middle of the day where you waited for the light to come but once that light showed up you realized why it was worth
08:58
it I mean that's the our post-production trickery because seeing that that's that's the light that he found at the moments that he found really when even in a good mood because he was in France also away from me you know what I mean like when when people go on location they can be either in a foul mood or a great mood oh he was in a good mood yeah again I am nothing to compare it to but I others did and there were people that knew what it was like to be around buddy when he was less optimistic about the film he was making and he's you know
09:29
he will tell you how he feels about things if you ask him I mean I didn't usually they're on a I'm a reserved Englishman and he's a rather shy New York intellectual and that you know didn't exactly catch fire in terms of the ease of chatting but he was um I haven't heard it through secondhand someone said I just heard what he's saying he's very happy with cement and
10:01
that sort of thing so Vidia no I think he was he was he definitely seemed in good spirits from what I could understand but no I think I think South of France I think it's a little into long way with him he likes the city Oh 100% yeah 100% I definitely want to jump into before I run out of time with you one of the things I'm so looking forward to because I've seen footage from the movie is Kingsman I saw at CinemaCon they showed this great great action scene in the restaurant and the first thing I thought
10:32
of when I watched the footage was you had seen Liam Neeson kickin ass and takin and said I can do that too no I would never have pursued to say that - although his thrilling Singley missin doing all that stuff you know particularly speaking as a fellow traveler in his age and you're not Liam Neeson's it but you know what I mean ya know I do know what you mean it since it you don't expect that someone's getting that call to arms when when you're my
11:04
age and we take you when you have no history of athleticism whatsoever quite a country really and Matthew Vaughn has a very very interesting way of messing with people's expectations and presumptions you know he he likes to take someone who has a certain who's identified with something and then just subvert the image and in the way I think what he was doing with me was the flip side of what he did with Robert De Niro
11:36
and Stardust which was you know the menacing pirate king and he said he found out he's a crossdresser and that's the last thing you'd expect Robert De Niro to be doing and in my case you know my recent history of romantic comedies and you know the date movies no last week you've done romantic comedies and so here I'm reminded of this and then just to turn it and say well you don't expect him to be a killing machine is the last person on earth you would expect and that was the point but in
12:07
order to to sell it he wanted me to do the stunts he you know he's anyone who jerk up to a stunt guy but he said no and we met a year before we started shooting in young I didn't know if he's happy to his script writing yet but he wanted to know if I was interested but soon he could proceed with me in mind and also for me to have a chance to get in training and his question to me was oh are you prepared to do it because you might hate me by the end of this but I really want you to to learn a whole new
12:40
craft hit her so it was three hours a day every day for six months with with this team of ten guys Jackie Chan's trainer the you know six times Olympic or six times Thai boxing world champion Olympic gymnastic gold medalist and then me basically I mean I've done I used to I box every morning with my own trainer and get exercise just to try to maintain
13:12
who fight against gravity as I grew older but is nothing on this scale and even when I when I was shooting the magic in the moonlight the trainer was there every morning they sent trainer to France and so I'd have to get up and do an hour and a half every morning for thanks for said I'm gonna tell you though it shows because the footage looked incredible like that stuff in the restaurant sequence with the guys and the umbrella and I think people at comic-con speaking of Comic Con because you're going this weekend I think they're going to lose their minds because I don't think they were prepared a lot of them
13:44
haven't seen everything or and I'm sure they're going to show a nice sizzle reel but is it this is one of these things where I'm sure Matthew and 20th Century Fox were thinking franchise potential which is maybe something you've never even contemplated not really and I do think this there are thoughts that this story will go on yes absolutely it's something that you're excited to keep on training every day know I have very mixed feelings about it you know I did the first month of that training was agony and huge doubts in my mind about
14:16
whether I was I was over you know felt less than a meter with these guys but then I just started to love it I felt like I've been wasting years not doing stuff like this but the trouble is there isn't much stuff like this you can learn to fight it's not really a fight this is choreographed stuff it's it's more like a dance but it's not really a dance either the every month you're learning moves in there but they have to be right into the camera yeah they have to be in coordination with other people's nerves and then the camera has to be part of the move - there's another
14:47
much longer fight sequence which is being kept up Matthew Vaughn's sleeve where it's all single angle stuff so it's it's mostly full body and it doesn't intercut and it's all it's me therefore I don't know how many minutes it lasts but they're an awful lot people fighting each other it's just one cameraman and of course he has to be part of the choreography as well and you know I it would it had a lot at times but when it was over I I missed it you know I had two more months on the film
15:16
and just acting okay for going back to pointing my suited people I have to wrap it you but except to ask you know what you're doing a year are you doing I read about this movie genius it sounds pretty cool I'm doing that yeah it's um that's about relationship between editor endorser and the editor a very great editor and also just man and nurtured literature and associative a Thomas Wolfe Fitzgerald
15:47
Hemingway and his about his relationship with Thomas Wolfe who will be played by Jude Law and it's directed by Michael Grandage yeah I saw Swiss I thought about it looks great I got a rap with you but I will tell you that I think comic-con is going to roll the footage have you seen a rough cut of it or not at all so you stole yeah I get it all right cool let me hit the stop there thank you so much and
