With awards season on the way, actors are lining up to plug their movies in the hopes that the pictures might get Academy voters to sit up and pay attention. As for general audiences, people like listening to celebrities, and Epix and the L.A. Times have teamed up to co-produce Hollywood Sessions, a five-part TV series of hour-long episodes featuring conversations with popular actors. Today, we have exclusive clips from a group conversation with actresses Jessica Chastain, Shailene Woodley, Jennifer Aniston, Emily Blunt, and Gugu Mbatha-Raw. While there aren’t any hard-hitting questions, there are nice little anecdotes like Chastain talking about the secrecy surrounding the Interstellar script and Woodley’s insightful answer about how loss-of-virginity scenes are handled in movies.
Hit the jump to watch the Hollywood Sessions clips. The series will premiere on December 8th at 8pm ET/PT on Epix, and also features interviews with Steve Carell, Benedict Cumberbatch, Robert Downey Jr., Michael Keaton, Eddie Redmayne, Emma Stone, and Christoph Waltz.
