Latest news from Jane Eyre
Posted by Peter Bowen | March 18, 2011
In the current issue of W, Lynn Hirschberg’s “Dual in the Sun” zooms in on Michael Fassbender and Mia Wasikowska, the stars of Cary Fukunaga’s Jane Eyre. The piece is broken into two parts, and illustrated with some stunning photos by Jean-Baptiste Mondino. The first half has Mia’s interviw and the second half presents Michael’s, which has a funny bit of about sex scenes.
Sex scenes can be quite awkward. As a guy, the first thing you want to do is make sure you’re not taking advantage. You don’t want the girl to feel like you’re getting a free feel or something. I try to make a fool of myself in one way or another to lighten the mood and then just go for it, because you don’t want to be doing take after take. As for dying—to not play like you’re dying is the way to go when you’re dying in a movie. I think it’s best to look like you’re about to fall asleep.
