Before going any further, to all the people nervous if you watch my video interview with Ellen Page it’ll somehow ruin Inception…don’t worry. I made sure to only ask questions about parts of the movie that were featured in the trailers, that way you can watch the interview and still walk in spoiler free. And trust me…that’s what you want to do. The less you know about Inception the better.
Anyway, at the recent Los Angeles press day for the film, I was able to speak with Miss Page after the press conference ended. During the extended interview we talked about what it was really like to make the movie, working for Christopher Nolan and alongside Leonardo DiCaprio, the paparazzi, does she read online sites, and we talked about future projects like HBO’s Tilda, Freeheld (which Catherine Hardwicke is attached to direct), Super, the Michel Gondry project Return of the Ice Kids, and a lot more.
If you’re a fan of this talented actress, you’ll love the interview, as it really turned out great. Hit the jump to check it out:
