New interview with Jemima and Lola by W Magazine

New interview with Jemima and Lola by W Magazine

Jemima and her sister Lola Kirke who stars in Untogether together was interviewed by W Magazine, read the full interview in our press archive and view a lovely new photoshoot taken at the Roxy Hotel in New York.

Lola Kirke has just emerged from 10 days’ vocal rest. “I have a hemorrhage on my vocal cords,” she told me recently. “From screaming at me,” explained her sister, Jemima Kirke. It was a late spring morning, and the two sibling actors sat side by side in a vacant hotel room in downtown Manhattan; later that evening, their new film Untogether, writer-director Emma Forrest’s narrative feature debut, was slated to premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival.

“From screaming at Jemima in a scene, but maybe it’s possible that 27 years of rage were coming out,” Lola went on. “Twenty-six, at the time,” her sister corrected.

“This was the best part about it though,” Jemima continued, before Lola cut her off. “The scene got cut.” Jemima corrected her again: “That’s the second-best part,” she said. (They have the distinctly sibling tendency of annotating each other’s stories in real time.) “The first-best part is that you wanted another take, but they kept wanting to move on, right?” Due to the time and budget constraints of making an independent film, there weren’t the resources to do the scene again. “She’s like, ‘Well, maybe if you showed up on time, we would have time for another take,’” Jemima recalled. “I was like, ‘Give the bitch another take.’” And they did—and that’s when Lola burst the blood vessel, after the first take and before the scene was cut entirely. (“You’re Adele!” Jemima remarked.)

“Which goes to show that anger only ever hurts you,” Lola said, affecting the sing-song tone of an after-school special. “So good! So good.”

Jemima discusses “Wild Honey Pie!” in new video interview

Jemima discusses “Wild Honey Pie!” in new video interview

Here is a new video interview by U Interview which they posted some days ago. Jemima speaks about her movie Wild Honey Pie! and also lets us know what was the most memorable moment while filming.

While filming Wild Honey Pie, a film about a couple struggling in their marriage, Jemima Kirke was most moved during a scene in which her character, Gillian, is watching her own play.

“[For] someone who’s so used to things being negative about them, that kind of stress and that sort of self loathing or whatever is never gonna move them as much as them achieving something,” Kirke told uInterview exclusively at South by Southwest in Austin. “That revealed something to me about her, which is that she probably doesn’t realize how capable she is and how professional she is. That’s, I don’t know why, but that moved me, watching it.”

Kirke said her character struggles very loudly and lives her life in a public way.

“She is someone who makes mistakes and figures things out right in the moment,” Kirke said. “Therein lies sort of her strength and her vulnerability.”

Kirke said that it is difficult to look at marriage from whole angles because marriage itself is an antiquated, man manmade concept.

“We find [Gillian] at a point in her life, which is very normal, where her marriage isn’t working,” Kirke said. “She chooses to stay in the end despite the fact that it makes absolutely no sense, you know? It is quite crazy that we stay married when we’re miserable, and then you just have to sort of weigh out, is this worth it? And sometimes it is and sometimes it isn’t.”

The British actress also had advice for married couples who may be struggling.

“I think it’s important to remember, if you’re married and you love the person you’re with, that you can come back from these mistakes, you know?” Kirke said. “There’s room to screw up, and if there isn’t then it’s just not gonna work.”

Read all of uInterview’s exclusive interview with Kirke below.

Can you describe your character in the film?

Jemima Kirke: She is someone who struggles very loudly and is sort of living her life in a very sort of non-private way. She is someone who makes mistakes and figures things out right in the moment. Therein lies sort of her strength and her vulnerability.

What struggle does your character face in the film?

JK: I think if you’re someone who looks at things from whole angles then traditions like marriage are going to be difficult because there’s so much about marriage that’s antiquated and sort of man made and not human. We find her at a point in her life, which is very normal, where her marriage isn’t working.

She chooses to stay in the end despite the fact that it makes absolutely no sense, you know? It is quite crazy that we stay married when we’re miserable, and then you just have to sort of weigh out, is this worth it? And sometimes it is and sometimes it isn’t.

I think it’s important to remember, if you’re married and you love the person you’re with, that you can come back from these mistakes, you know? There’s room to screw up, and if there isn’t then it’s just not gonna work.

What was your most memorable moment while filming?

JK: The last scene where Gillian is watching her play, I didn’t expect that to move me so much.

Someone who’s so used to things being negative about them, that kind of stress and that sort of self loathing or whatever is never gonna move them as much as them achieving something.

That revealed something to me about her, which is that she probably doesn’t realize how capable she is and how professional she is. That’s, I don’t know why, but that moved me, watching it.

New interview by ‘Cultured Vultures’

Found one more interview with Jemima from when she was promoting Wild Honey Pie! at the SXSW Film Festival. This time it’s by Cultured Vultures and you can read it in our press archive.

Girls alumnus Jemima Kirke sat down with Cultured Vultures to discuss her new film, Wild Honey Pie, premiering at the 2018 SXSW Film Festival.

Thanks for joining us today. Your new film, Wild Honey Pie, premiered at SXSW. How much of a thrill is it to premiere the film at the festival?
I like SXSW. I’ve been here once before when I did Tiny Furniture so it’s kind of nice to come back.

So has the experience been fun?
Yeah. I’m only here for 24 hours.

So you don’t get to take in the full festival experience?
No, I only went to the premiere and stayed out late last night. I’m going home in a few hours.

After playing Jessa Johansson for six seasons, how different was it to play Gillian Walker in Wild Honey Pie and what was it that attracted you to Jamie Adams’ script?
It was completely different to play Gillian. It was much harder, actually. We have to flesh out a person in an hour and a half and change. In Girls, Jessa is revealed over the course of six seasons and because of that, you could take time in an episode just being sort of on the nose that are funny or say things that are so very Jessa — be a caricature of myself. I could that a lot. On this, it was more human I suppose.
