tv Larry King Now RT July 14, 2017 11:30pm-12:01am EDT
if i'm. from. it must have been a new thing i've been doing i came out of the womb just like performing women my parents got the theater community theater very early when i was a kid i think probably just to get that behavior out of the house the duality of being a performer is that like all the time you're feeling very confident and you deserve the pardon at the same time you just feel like. no one's going to remember that you did i think that with trump in office actually women are really feeling the need to empower themselves and in that way a lot of interesting work is being created. women yes i think wonder woman is a great example of this is a woman strong woman with a great message for women and that's exciting plus with me.
so over is enjoying it are you enjoying it. all next on larry king mel. larry king our guest today is actor allison breed known for her roles on community and mad men. stars in the highly anticipated new netflix series glow about a female wrestling league as well as the movie the little hours about a group of misbehaving nuns flow premier on netflix june twenty third and the little hours hits theaters june thirtieth rescues and this is your life in really branching out so i just wanted to either side of the spectrum of what's cool about glo is based on an actual show from the eighty's called glow gorgeous ladies of
wrestling and our show is sort of a look at the behind the scenes of the making of this women's wrestling television shows evolve as a television show was a television show was on for four. five years it really highly was shot in one thousand eighty five network it was you know what aired right after dr scott so it would have been on one of these weird kind of do you remember dr scott he's a televangelist who actually used to wait on when i was a waitress at the pool bar at the ritz carlton in pasadena so i kind of like the symmetry there so the show was about it was about women's wrestling but it was really a crazy variety show there's nothing more eighty's than the original glow there their outfits are outrageous they're a neon clothes their characters are over the top it's all women they do sketch comedy they rap wrestle and our show follows my character ruth wilder into this world she's an out of work actress and is really hanging on to the bottom rung and
asking her parents for money and you know can't get a job to say i'm not a wrestler she is not a wrestler and she gets an opportunity to audition for this women's wrestling show and it's sort of her last ditch effort at you know success in what she thought she would do as a performer so the show is about the show it's a show within a show it's about the making of the show and jenji kohan created rights jenji cohen executive produces it and liz flay hiving carly mensch created it is the new but yeah let's see a clip from glo watch so can working on these opening moves called the hammer and sickle. punch. so it's the camera start with a body slam get back up but then i think you know your beat so you know. that i did you got to wait it out a lot. you care don't you turn it around on me you walk really up and you think you
got me but then i come back with these soon to be famous. and then you know why i'm that you're good oh i'm winning. oh. sure there are any and. your love ripest while entertainment weekly described glows as silly smart masterpiece unlike any show we've ever seem to what makes it's obviously it's different makes it so different i think the topic itself is very unique women's wrestling has never been explored it was part of they have it on the sometimes on the monday night usa they have actual women's wrestling on but i think because this is sort of getting into what motivates people to want
to wrestle and really it's much more about the characters and their lives and that makes it really interesting it's sort of toes the line between comedy and drama so you're it's not easy to put it into a box they teach you how to wrestle they absolutely did you good i thought i was good and then when i watch the show i'm like well we're ok. two women pretty good wrestlers and yeah they were the original women of glo were just like us so they were all actresses they were not wrestlers when they got cast on the show and then they got trained to wrestle just like we did in your show or their wrestlers yes there is one professional wrestler kiya stevens who plays ten me on our show who is basically a fun housewife who doesn't know how to wrestle and then she learns to as well so her wrestling is pretty great on the show but we all do our own stunts and we train for a month before we started shooting the show with child guerrero junior pro wrestler
and his weekly it no it drops all the same time. ten you see in the nets it you go like. you can watch them all in a row that for. which is the new that's that's the black look. i love it i love netflix i have another show on netflix called horseman that's an animated show and we're about. i think our fourth season should be released later this year and i love it i watch a ton of netflix i love being able to do what it all now you're another project to see the movie movie right yet told the little hours about bad nuns came up with this because the cio it's based on the to cameron from the fourteenth century which is humorous it's sort of like the canterbury tales but about italian nuns and priests and their bad behavior so there is this sort of true oh it's
not true but our director jeff sort of took that source material. and then we speak very contemporarily in the movie and it's just a look there are true aspects to it in the fact that women in the fourteenth century didn't become nuns because they were especially religious it was much more about social standing and you know. if they were unwed or if their family didn't have money it was things about like that so this sort of explores the idea that all these women are stuck at this convent but they still have sexual desires they still you know they still have anger and resentment your husband is in that right he is yes and he gets he's he gets physical with a lot of women is going to say here i got to be romantic and then he also gets to be romantic with every other girl in the movie. those who know the movie with the husband the disaster orders yes directed by his brother james franco yes you're
very busy yeah well you know i was very busy. like six months ago and now everything's coming out at the same time so i'm busy again and that's always a great feeling so james franco's your husband's older brother yes your brother will yes how good a directors he's a great director he's. i think he really gives the actors room to kind of do their thing and puts a lot of trust into the people he's working with which feels good and very few feels like a very instinctual director although it was bizarre shooting this with him because he plays the lead character tommy was so this is based on a true story and so for the duration of shooting he had this long black wig and he has facial prosthetics on and he's doing a weird may be you know. i don't know just like a weird eastern european accent and he would sort of stay in character while directing so is this a direct. experience with directed by and he's the european yeah. now you
recently were in the news. to share your story about being asked to wear a bikini he draws you edition what was that about well i think that it was sort of an offhand story that got wildly misconstrued because i was sort of misquoted and the perception was that i was maybe asked to get totally topless in an audition which was not the case the question i had been asked to was about auditioning and my character has a tough time auditioning in glo and is auditioning as hard you know how does auditioning now compare to the one nine hundred eighty s. and i was sort of trying to point out that in a lot of ways it's not very different when you're an actor starting out there are mild humiliations that you suffer all the time i was i was there were producers. i mean isn't there always no i think i mean in terms of this show in particular
entourage you know i knew that i was going in to audition for bikini girl number three i just wanted to point out you know i don't i wasn't out on a crusade about sexual harassment against those guys i just was pointing out as there are a lot of discrimination in the hollywood i think it ebbs and flows i think that shows like glo and orange is the new black and people like jenji cohen and jen used in our casting director are making great strides in not only creating. deep in interesting roles for a variety of types of women but are also giving first time actors a chance they're looking for fresh faces and they create a really warm and inviting atmosphere in the audition room there are a lot of casting directors who i know who are warm and lovely and make it great at the same time i think when you're starting out you're always going to you're going
to go to dish and this is the name of the game you've got to start somewhere so you have to do what you had to do with yeah oh but isn't there a lot of hypocrisy going if the sergeant is going on the hollywood is so empty trump. yeah i mean. it's an interesting time i think that with trump in office actually women are really feeling the need to empower themselves and in that way a lot of interesting work is being created for good morning why women yes i think wonder woman is a great example of this directive by a woman starring woman with a great message for women and that's exciting you're going to be in steven spielberg's movie about the pentagon papers and your you interviewed all the people involved while i said you know you're willing to if you're going to play i play lally weymouth katharine graham's daughter knew her well i know you knew katharine graham or oh my gosh i should never pressure was with lovely women five or six new
year's eve parties that katharine graham chose oh wow i heard they were great party is the best. they would have best dancers colin powell oh my god. what would you addition for steven i did it yes i went in for an amazing casting director ellen lewis in new york well so i did not directly for steven i auditioned for ellen lewis on tape and she couldn't have been lovelier i read for two different roles in the film and a week later i got a call that i had a meeting set with steven spielberg which was a very unreal call sort of a dream experience and then i went in and met with steven and he couldn't have been lovelier i was very nervous to lollywood both play a significant part in the pentagon papers we know you know i think she was a source of support and encouragement for her mother at the time and that is what's reflected in the film who plays golf from groom oh no streep yeah. well and who
does tom hanks play he plays ben bradley the editor and my closest friends wow wow where the shooting was shooting in new york not in washington no. all because it's a lot of interiors i'm sure they'll shoot some exteriors in washington it's not a movie magic. call the pentagon papers it's called the paper's. strange job seeker talents and the perks of celebrity she's in the low a little hours. the papers she's everything. without. the papers. and. basically everything. is always going to be somebody else one step
ahead of the game. we should not be. on. we don't need people that think like this. this is an incredibly situation. you're watching. for. our culture is awash in laws dominated by streams of never ending electronic hallucinations that merge fiction until they are indistinguishable we have become the most believe society on politics as a species of endless and needless political theater politicians bore into celebrity
our two ruling parties are in reality one party corporate and those who attempt to punk is bad breath was universal. designed to push through the teeth and exploitation to be a little more force so far to the margins of society including by a public broadcasting system that has sold its soul for corporate money that we might as well be mice squeaking against an apple but squeak we must. disagree is our guest she's in everything you miss community. it was fun it was really fun you can't put you in any turn role now right you can't typecast your which is very good at that's the goal i hope so so when it would all loose you don't worry about your next gig or you like henry fonda who says if this most script in his hand he's worthy of one hundred percent i why fix has you just never
know i think also there's that self-doubt that lives in you all the time i feel like performers are the duality of being a performer is that like all the time you're feeling very confident and you deserve the pardon at the same time you just feel like you're at an invisible piece and no one's going to remember that thing you did months are going by it's a terrible feeling who plays daniel ellsberg. in the pentagon he's the he's the star of the piece you're right but i can't think of him. raise them right now and deal with are you can have to wait and see that was he would be the future that he steals i'm well you don't know overeating about our movie you can't do the movie without daniel ellsberg we'll see about that ok allison maybe you make a more restless movie everything we put a little game of if you only knew oh ok ok just so it's not a court you know what childhood soberly crush. i know i liked joseph
gordon levitt he was on that show third rock from the sun that sitcom where he played an alien and he had the hair down to his shoulders. but i was really into it and also jonathan taylor thomas was a big one for me so i was a kid j t t we would say j t t h o t. would you go up a group in south pasadena california secret talent sleeping can sleep anywhere and great at it you like to sleep love it person you'd trade places with for a day. maybe meryl streep because you know just getting to watch her work for a minute i think god how come so naturally the depth there like what i just want to see how that mind works created she does the. strangers job you've ever heard well i did work as a clown and characters for children's parties for
a summer when i was getting on my school in college was seventeen are you good i was pretty good clone guilty pleasure i don't know i mean. in what way how do you alison you get any type of thing like guilty pleasure television show i mean i watch keeping up with the kardashians if that's what you're asking me larry king why do you watch that. course of their talent. their talent i'm just trying to learn from them it could teach you a lot what never fails to make you less. oh or. i mean my husband it's very funny when i have children no. you don't have to but what do what would you like to have a superpower i guess flying i take flying over invisibility i like it is willing to do. otherwise fly all around the world when i mean the seas down
i guess come fly with me indeed best piece of advice you ever got. don't have been so was. there let's go on what's the biggest perk of being a celebrity biggest perk of being a celebrity. i celebrity i guess i would say getting to work with amazing people you know in the more work you do and when that work at syria and it's very exciting about being married to celebrity the biggest perk of being married to his leverage off i don't think i would ever just like go out of my way to choose to be married to a celebrity but i am just married to an amazing i do beat him we met at mardi gras in new orleans five years ago i was the king of bach there's no way i was rode on a float i had my mess to float my hold my court got a crown i had
a chrome i still have the outfit they make you outfit for could have been you and me. don't tell me don't do this allison don't do this we're so close. to like you know. one of paltrow and sliding doors. alison what was your craziest fan encounter. craziest fan encounter i will say i actually have not had too many bad ones community fans mad men fans are so sweet and lovely and really kind of keep a distance i feel like they're very. very nice in that way but dave's fans are nutty i've had girls push me out of the way to get a photo with him and i'm like i'll take the photo i there's really no need for violence. taught me something that we don't know about you. that's
a tough one i know now and i snore really loud i'm a terrible mr but i would be no use to nor my husband has told me he was like are you just going to snore all the time now and i was like i don't know do you like to sleep i love sleeping you can't stop me from i want to not sleep groups sleep on airplanes yes i can sleep just fully sitting up just like this you know bill clinton could sleep standing up on a plane i bet i could do the same to get a bun you told me get up on air force one talk to before sleep standing up i bet i could do it but you could before we get into the social media question several people tweeted marriage proposals thoughts is that have you had many marriage proposals in your life and no i mean really only one and only one real one and i guess millions of fake ones. you must have had some serious relationships yes definitely wars definitely were marriage was discussed but i've never had
someone get down on one knee and said no to them that franco get down a woman definitely he really did we're in big sur california nice things did you answer yes right away. no not right away i was so shocked that i actually burst out laughing and asked him a number of times if he was being serious before. as it's sort of. ok we have some questions yes my bros told he'll as simply six seasons and a movie. leaves i'm sure they'll be a community movie yes. i wish i knew i don't know i think it's t.b.d. chris nine sixty five sixty one have you developed an interest in wrestling as a fan after taking on the role of ruth definitely microsleep yes i have such a deep respect for it now i think knowing everything that goes into it. sharp
michael did you learn how to german sub plex on the set of glo and which w w e wrestlers do you have crushes on oh wow i mean i learned how to regular suplex i don't know what the german suplex is so maybe i've not gotten there yet even know what a suplex or say are you fit. i don't have i can't say i don't i'm not familiar enough with the current. roster to say what it crushes on maurice the eighth when donald glover became childish gambino did you think he was predicting you know not at all when donald would play his music for us on set we were all blown away. that eighty eight what do you miss most about community oh and just seeing those guys every day that whole group and goofing around on the left who falls constant laughs they're so funny and we stay in touch and we text each other all
the time we keep our group chain going but it's true who sexier ryan reynolds or ryan gosling. ryan gosling. you know them below i know them personally no i do not know them no i don't know them they're both very sad austin's a great guy i guess i'd go for gosling but reynolds is a close second i'm easy on what made you want to start acting it must have been an innate thing i've been doing i think i came out of the womb just like performing and when i was a kid i always played must have started with attention because all i wanted to do was perform for my neighbors and sing for them and dance around and put costumes on at home and my parents got me into theater community theater very early when i was a kid i think probably just to get that behavior out of the house you are treating person. ryan sixty four do you miss working on mad men yeah i mean the material
was so incredible but i was really respect it's so nice when a show you know a show runner can decide when a show is going to and a network kind of collectively and then the show gets to have its ending the way it's intended rather than something getting canceled out of nowhere or going on and on and on until you start to sort of get tired of it i think i love that i you know that we have yeah and it in its prime. box have you ever been courted by the marvel cinematic universe would you consider working behind the camera these are two very different questions yes. i have mildly i've auditioned for a marvel movie before i would love to do a marvel movie i love is that a good one the woman thank you i thought gal gadot was great but yeah i would love i would love to do that interested in directing i kind of waver on this and sometimes i think i would like to i campaigned for a while to be able to direct a community episode but that never happened and. i don't know it's all about sort
of finding something i would be actually very passionate about to direct i think pete's a crude wants to know what's your favorite she. well we all know the obvious answer it is a great cheese but i'm a loser gal before we go. is there a wrestling move you want to hit me with oh i'm hitting you with something come on baby you're going to get over what you stay there i'll get here's what i'm going to do what everyone i'm going to put you in a simple headlock you're going to stay where you are going to stay here and just cradle your face right in my elbow just like so and basically and now you have to make a face like you're getting hurt or oh you stop with trolling me. keep it up keep it up keep some over is enjoying it to your enjoyed it oh i am. on

the mission of newsworthy is to go to the people tell their side of the story more stories are well sourced we don't hide anything from the public and i don't think the mainstream media in this country can say you know i think average viewer knows that r.t. america has a different perspective so that we're not hearing one echo chamber that mean stream media is constantly spewing. we're not beholden to any corporate sponsor no one tells us what the cover how long or how to say that's the beauty of archie america . we hear both sides we hear from both sides and we question more that journalists are not getting anything getting away to bring it home to the american people.
