Are alice englert and alden ehrenreich dating
Together, they uncover dark secrets about their respective families, their history, and their town. Psst, stay tuned to JJJ we've got a few more exclusive stills coming next week!
The behind-the-scenes video also features stars Emmy Rossum, Viola Davis, Emma Thompson, and Jeremy Irons discussing their roles.
Alden's parents are not in the industry, but at 14, he was discovered by Steven Spielberg when he made a video for his friend's bat mitzvah, which Spielberg was attending. " "Beautiful Creatures," similar to "Twilight," is based on the first of four YA novels about a human in love with an unearthly being.
The director was so impressed with how Alden filled out the kimono he was wearing (or, more likely, impressed by his acting talent) that he helped him out with meetings and auditions, which led to a role in Francis Ford Coppola's "Tetro" and Woody Allen's upcoming "Blue Jasmine." Unfortunately for us, that bat mitzvah video hasn't made its way to You Tube. It's somewhere in a cabinet in my house," Alden laughed. Here, the human is Ethan (Ehrenreich) who falls for Lena (Englert), a "caster" (basically a witch) just before her 16th birthday, where she'll be claimed as either good or evil.
I think especially for the young audience that it's targeted for, I feel good humanitarian-wise about the messages that are put forth in the film.
The film follows Ethan (Ehrenreich) who longs to escape his small Southern town and he meets a mysterious new girl, Lena (Englert).
"But when I read the script, I was pleasantly surprised to find that [writer/director] Richard La Gravenese had taken the story and made a personal film.
Alice won't look like her." : [Whispers] She was black. But everybody is gonna have a different point of view so you can never really pander to fans because all you'll do is dilute your own ability to do the best job, which is the best thing you can do for the fans. They're a real couple which means that those external circumstances put pressure on, they get frustrated with each other, they get pissy with each other, they yell at each other, they say mean things, and that's what we should be talking about.
I wanted to keep a very definite separation between the film and the books. You're also given this freedom because you're in something that already has a fan base and they're making another one, so you can experiment that much more. : I think it's a funny movie and we have a lot of humor in our relationship.
I didn't want to try to take Lena from the readers. She should always be the way they picture her in their heads. I think it's a good thing for anyone who is looking into stories to try to understand how the world works; it's still love even if you fight.
"Beautiful Creatures" star Alden Ehrenreich is just 23 years old, not that his hair would agree. " Ehrenreich asked Huff Post Entertainment while climbing on top of, and then crawling across, a conference table at New York's Warner Bros. ("Oh my god, I'm gonna hit you in the head really hard," Englert quipped at Ehrenreich after a bit of playful teasing.) After asking if it's okay to do so, both doodle pictures of each other throughout the interview, explaining "it makes the answers better." Englert and Ehrenreich spoke to Huff Post Entertainment about choosing the film, their love for "Columbo," and those pesky "Twilight" comparisons. I said no three times just to auditioning -- it wasn't an offer. Of all the movies I was reading -- big, small, genre, indie, whatever -- this had the best characters and the best relationships and the best dynamics. "Twilight." It just was that it was this kind of, "They're trying to capitalize on 'Twilight.'" I didn't see the "Twilight" movies, I have no point of view on the "Twilight" movies, but it didn't sound like it.
" When asked if he was greying from the stress of filming and promoting "Beautiful Creatures," the fantasy film that is being both heralded and critiqued as the next "Twilight," Alice Englert, Ehrenreich's co-star, answered for him. The chemistry between the two is palpable in the film, and perhaps even more so in person. While this is still a commercial movie, when I read the script it was very clear that both from the book, but also what Richard had brought to it, that it was a really personal point of view. It was clear to me that it was a personal story and it had its own very unique atmosphere, and language, and culture to it, and was nothing like anything else I was reading.
Ehrenreich and Englert have both have appeared in smaller films before, but "Beautiful Creatures" is a big break for the duo. The story focuses on Lena Duchannes (Englert), a witch (or "caster" as they are called in the book and film), who falls in love with Ethan Wate (Ehrenreich) and must decide whether her life will be one of good or evil. : When you hear about movies, they're always doing these comparative summaries and typically when they do that, they are exactly what it sounds like. This movie had its own identity that was sort of buried under the comparisons. Part of what he brought to my character was his own personality and life story.
