Sarah Michelle Gellar Has Superficial Dreams

Sarah Michelle Gellar Has Superficial Dreams

With Sarah Michelle Gellar, what you see is what you get pretty much.

The 30-year-old actress is featured in January’s ensemble indie The Air I Breathe, the second of three Gellar films coming out in quick succession (last year’s Southland Tales and this month’s Possession are the others). The February 2008 issue of Radar has a great interview with her, so here are some of the highlights:

On her BFF Manolo Blahnik: “One day, a couple friends and I went into Bergdorf just to get out of the rain. A man who works there, who I know, he said, “Mr. Blahnik is here signing autographs and doing sketches.You have to come meet him. And there was this big line of women, and I thought, This is going to be so embarrassing, he’s going to have absolutely no idea who I am! So I’m waiting for this blank look from him, and he’s like [imitating his Spanish accent], “It’s Sarah Michelle! I love the Buffy !” He was so lovely. He sketched a shoe and signed it, and it actually hangs in my closet.”

On being a child star: “As a kid, performing was my passion, but it wasn’t at the forefront of my life. I wasn’t a child star, I was a working child actor. So I got more from seeing other actors who had missed their childhoods.”

On portraying a porn star: “With Southland Tales, playing a porn star, being in an ensemble cast, all those things were experiences, obviously, that I’d never had. Coming out in the wardrobe alone some days was enough of a challenge—just getting out of my trailer.”

On her superficial dreams: “My dreams are just so on the surface that, literally, there’s nothing to actually read into.”

FYI: You’ll never hear SMG talk about her political views (she says she’s worried about influencing her fans) or her religious ones (“I don’t talk about religion”).
