BP:MOVING FORWARD WHAT KIND CHARACTERS ARE YOU HOPING TO PLAY?  WHAT ROLES INSPIRE YOU?

 JM:  I WANT TO PLAY CHARACTERS THAT PEOPLE CAN CONNECT TO. WHERE YOU WATCH IT AND LEARN SOMETHING NEW ABOUT YOURSELF OR THE WORLD. THAT’S MY MAIN GOAL. EXAMPLE, WHEN I SAW PHILIP SEYMOUR HOFFMAN AND ANDREW GARFIELD IN DEATH OF A SALESMAN IT BROKE MY HEART, IN THE MOST BEAUTIFUL WAY. THEY JUST NAILED IT. WHEN ANDREW GARFIELD FELL ON THE STAGE AND WEPT YOU FELT IT THROUGH THE ENTIRE THEATER, IT MADE YOU FEEL ALIVE! MOMENTS LIKE THAT INSPIRE ME AND SHAPE THE ROLES I WANT TO PLAY.

BP:WHETHER THEY WANT TO BE OR NOT, WOMEN IN CINEMA ARE SO INFLUENTIAL IN SHAPING YOUNG GIRLS SELF-ESTEEM.  HOW DO YOU SEE THE CURRENT STATE OF THE INDUSTRY RESPONDING TO THIS TOPIC? 

JM:  THE WOMEN I LOVE IN CINEMA AND THE WOMEN I ADMIRE REPRESENT WHAT REAL WOMEN ARE LIKE. JULIANNE MOORE, ANJELICA HUSTON, MERYL STREEP, DIANE LANE. THE TYPES OF WOMEN WHO DON’T GET TONS OF PLASTIC SURGERY. KATE WINSLET FOR EXAMPLE STARTED A WHOLE SOCIETY OF WOMEN AGAINST PLASTIC SURGERY AND I LIKE THAT BECAUSE I THINK IT’S IMPORTANT TO PROMOTE WHAT REAL WOMEN LOOK LIKE. NOWADAYS THERE’S THIS OBSESSION WITH WEIGHT AND LOOKS. IT IS A PROBLEM WHAT WE ARE BEING FORCE FED IN THE MEDIA. KATE WINSLET WAS ONE OF THE FIRST WOMEN TO COME OUT AGAINST A MAGAZINE FOR PHOTOSHOPPING HER THIGHS, SHE SAID I DON’T LOOK LIKE THAT AND GIRLS AT HOME SHOULDN’T FEEL THAT’S WHAT THEIR SUPPOSED TO LOOK LIKE EITHER. I THINK IT’S IMPORTANT FOR YOUNGER GIRLS IN OUR SOCIETY TO NOT FEEL THAT UNREALISTIC PRESSURE AND I REALLY RESPECT WOMEN LIKE KATE WINSLET WHO SPEAK OPENLY ABOUT IT.VISIT BROOK'S BLOG GOTHAMDREAMS FOR THE ENTIRE ARTICLE.
