FLARE.com Asks… Joy Bryant and Joshua Jackson, cont’d
FLARE: Do you still do that?
Joshua Jackson: Yes. This is a really satisfying job if you remain immediate and see the beauty in it, if you can be like Anthony Hopkins and after 40 years of being an actor say, “God, I can’t believe I get to work with Harry Belafonte!”
FLARE: Joy, was the transition from modeling to acting difficult?
Joy Bryant: Over the years it’s become easier. I remember models like Cindy Crawford just getting roasted! Thank God for Diane Kruger, Jamie King and Charlize Theron! We’re finally able to come in, do some good work and work with great people without people assuming that we slept with the director.
FLARE: Is it scary seeing how some people’s lives are scrutinized by the tabloids like your Dawson’s co-stars for example?
Joshua Jackson : I haven’t spoken to Katie in over a year. But, I have been around Michelle and she has, by far, done the best out of the four of us since the show ended. She’s a happy, in love, mom with an Academy Award nomination. The reason why? Even though she does get hounded in a way that is uncomfortable now, it’s based on something. At the center of that entire storm is a person who is actually good at her job.
FLARE: Name a director you would love to work with
Joy Bryant: Wes Anderson
FLARE: And what is your favorite film?
Joy Bryant: From him, The Royal Tenenbaums, but I love The Godfather I and II.
Joshua Jackson: Steven Soderbergh and Out of Sight
