Matthew McConaughey, Jessica Chastain, and Anne Hathaway get in for a group shot with director Christopher Nolan while promoting their new movie Interstellar on the latest cover of The Hollywood Reporter.
Here’s what the trio of actors had to share with the mag about whether the film changed any of their feelings, philosophically or religiously:
Matthew: It opened my view a little bit. My views of what’s out there expanded for me after doing this film called Contact . Carl Sagan: to hear him speak for four hours. I’ve always been someone who didn’t go to see sci-fi films; I didn’t read sci-fi books as a child. And my thoughts were always [about] what’s tangible, what we have right here, maybe what’s beneath the sea, but I was never looking out there. That always was sort of an unknown. “Oh, don’t worry about that; it’s not attainable.”
Anne: I think [this] affirmed certain things about the interconnectivity of things. About trusting others and the meaning behind things, even if it doesn’t make sense, even if it hurts. Over the long, infinite arc of time, things tend to happen as they should and they usually find their place, their slot.
Jessica: It also coincided with this idea that I believe that we’re all connected. Not just in this moment but in every moment. So as I was wrapping my head around the science of the film, I was incredibly moved by the human component of the film, and definitely it coincided with my spiritual beliefs.
