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.”

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.
