My Interview With Sexy Actress/Singer America Olivo!
JH – Circle is like an Independent version of a film like Seven, did you get that feel or was it just me?
AO – Is it because I remind you of Gwyneth Paltrow? Awe… Shucks Actually, I do get what you mean. Not in the film’s specifics, nor plot, but in that it investigates the mind of a thrilling serial killer. Most people are fascinated by the minds and motivations behind the people who commit such horrid acts. Diving into the guts of these types is what makes these two films both equally thrilling and horrific.
JH – What are some of your favorite films?
AO – Excluding any films me my husband and I have been in… I can’t name them all, there are many, but here are some off the top of my head : Empire of the Sun, The Royal Tannenbaums, Little Miss Sunshine, Food Inc, Avatar, South Park, Ghostbusters, Sense and Sensibility, A Clockwork Orange, The Shawshank Redemption, Big, The Green Mile
JH – Your film credits show some very recognizable films like the remake of Friday the 13th, Iron Man, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen along with films like Bitch Slap, Neighbor and Circle. What are some of your favorite roles to date?
AO – Well, I love them all for different reasons. I loved working with Robert Downey Jr. and Gwyneth Paltrow in Iron Man. I loved becoming a part of the Friday the 13th family. I loved getting to play a Kubrick style killer in Neighbor. It was great fun to be in a tiny part of a summer blockbuster like Transformers 2 and getting to be on set to watch how such amazing effects are developed in a film so grand. In circle, I loved being a bit of the comic relief in a thriller/horror. I think my role in Bitch Slap was my favorite for the reason that I got to do things with that character that are only usually reserved for men in films. I love being over the top, and there was no ceiling on what happens in Bitch Slap land!
JH – Bitch Slap looks like an amazingly fun Grindhouse-style film, was it as fun to shoot as it looks?
AO – Bitch Slap is fun now, but was such hard work, we didn’t have much time for fun while filming. Most of the fun we had was enjoying promoting the film and hearing the reaction from Bitch Slapping fans
JH – What’s your favorite scary movie? (Sorry can’t help it. I’m a big Scream fan!)
AO – Audrey Rose.
JH – Speaking of Scream – Neve Campbell, what’s she like and how are you sisters-in-law getting along?
AO – She’s amazing! She’s one of the most beautiful, generous, open hearted, and talented people I know.
JH – Do you know if she was happy doing Scream 4 and if she had any interesting stories?
AO – Ha ha! I haven’t heard any anecdotes from her yet as she’s busy and traveling. All I know is that my husband went out to Michigan and spent time with the cast at some point and couldn’t have had a nicer time and said nicer things about everyone he met there. Sounds like a great group of people. I’m looking forward to seeing it!
