Laura Dern Talks About Hollywood Narcissism

Laura Dern sits down for a talk at the 2017 Cannes Lions Festival on Sunday (June 18) in Cannes, France.

Joining the 50-year-old Big Little Lies star at the event was YouTube personality Grace Helbig.

Laura spoke at the event about Hollywood narcissism.

“I am always stunned by the amount of press I have done in my life with respected actors, and we sit there and wait for someone to ask something that we are passionate about, rather than something funny that happened on the set,” she said. “Narcissism only lasts for so long, and I’m thinking ‘Oh my god, how long can he talk about himself?… There should be a cause we can talk about.’”

    Interesting that someone who is friends with Witherspoon, Paltrow and Aniston is talking about narcissism. Dern’s best friends love to talk about themselves. About their hair, weight, clothes. What they buy. What makes them happy. Maybe Dern needs to start with her friends before calling out others.

    That and I don’t think it’s a persons fault or proof of narcissism if they are asked something about something that happened to them on set. And honestly I think there is narcissism behind thinking your political opinion matters. You are an actor people are automatically going to ask about your craft before your political beliefs. You are an actor full time and a part one activist. People clearly aren’t going to ask you as man. Political questions if you are supposed to be promoting a movie.

    People in Hollywood are and have always been narcissistic. But also, the sole purpose of press junkets is to learn more about the role that you’ve created in a given movie, the tools involved in interpretation of the complex characteristics of a character or strategies employed to convey the emotions.
    The journalists ask about things that people are going to be interested in – and I bet that listening to, for example, Rosamund Pike trying to figure out how to understand someone with a wicked mind – like Amy Dunne – was far more entertaining and informative than listening to her talk about her favourite face cream, regardless of how passionate she might be about her skin care regimen.
