Laura Dern Calls Starring in 'Last Jedi' the Greatest Thing to Ever Happen!

Laura Dern paid a visit to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Monday evening (August 7), and gave some insight on her role in the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi, in which she plays Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo.

“Can you tell me anything else about Vice Admiral Holdo?” host Stephen pleaded. “I can tell you,” the 50-year-old Emmy-nominated actress said with a laugh, “I love her.”

“Is she a good guy? Is she a bad guy?” Stephen continued to insist, before Laura added “It”s complicated.”

Here’s what Laura decided to share: “To be an actor my whole life, but first, a kid who loved movies and walk on a set—costume’s ready, you’re mic’ed, you’re learning your lines, the camera’s rolling—you open your eyes to do a scene like any other work day, and it’s Star Wars? I could cry,” Laura earnestly expressed. “I thought I was going to pass out. It’s the greatest thing to ever happen to me.”

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.’”

'Twin Peaks' Creator David Lynch Talks Upcoming Revival With 'Variety'

The cast of the upcoming revival of Twin Peaks covers the May issue of Variety, available now.

Here’s what the creator David Lynch and the cast, including Laura Dern and Kyle MacLachlan, had to share with the mag:

David on where his ideas come from: “It comes in a burst. An idea comes in, and if you stop and think about it, it has sound, it has image, it has a mood, and it even has an indication of wardrobe, and knowing a character, or the way they speak, the words they say. A whole bunch of things can come in an instant.”

Laura on the original series: “I don’t think anyone who ever saw Twin Peaks will ever have it not ingrained in their memory and imagination for the rest of their lives.

Kyle on David’s creative process: “There’s no wasted time or wasted emotions, tangents, whatever. He’s very precise when we talk through the scene, and he tells me what’s going to happen. He has already thought it through, and he sees it.”
