Drew Barrymore, the 47-year-old actress, producer, talk show host and a recipient of several accolades including a Golden Globe, a screen-actors alongside a Guild Award among others, appears to be unimpressed on Andrew Garfield’s unusual tactics of acting during the making of Scorsese’s “Silence”.
In the matter of the fact, Garfield said to Marc Maron last month that he adopted a particular stratagem that included abstaining from imtimate female contact about six months in order to play a role of a Priest at a Scorsese religious show.
During Maron’s WTF podcast Garfield said, “A lot of misconceptions about what method acting is. People are still acting in that way, and it’s not about being an asshole to everyone on set. It’s actually just about living truthfully under imagined circumstances, and being really nice to the crew simultaneously, and being a normal human being, and being able to drop it when you need to and staying in it when you want to stay in it”.
Barrymore unimpressed on Garfield’s acting tactics
Meanwhile, speaking in the “Drew Barrymore” show, the prep of Garfield’s silence came up on September 20 episode, while it appears that Barrymore is not too impressed on Garfield’s acting stratagem.
Besides, Barrymore added that Christian Bale and Mathew McConaughey practiced several methods to yield a better outcome while playing a character, however, it appeared that Garfield’s topics might have embarrassed the host.
On top of that, adding that she understands that an actor needs to “transform and fully commit” to a character during the entirety of a filming, Barrymore said, “I definitely [did], on certain projects, like when I did ‘Grey Gardens,’ this film I did where I played beloved real-life woman Edie Beale.
I was so nervous I didn’t really chit chat with everybody on set, I just really stayed in character”.
