Garrett Hedlund Says 'Mudbound' is 'As Unsentimental & As Real As Possible'

Garrett Hedlund is all smiles while speaking on stage during the Hammer Museum presents The Contenders 2017: Mudbound held at the Hammer Museum on Monday (December 4) in Los Angeles.

The 33-year-old actor was joined at the event by his co-stars Mary J. Blige, Jason Clarke, Jason Mitchell, director Dee Rees and MoMA Chief Curator of Film, Rajendra Roy, who moderated the Q&A following the screening.

Struggling to survive, the Second World War-era film follows two families who work the same land in the Mississippi Delta but live worlds apart.

“It still makes you very sick when you have to sit there during those difficult scenes. The racial slurs are being thrown around… you never get over that,” Garret recently expressed. “Some scenes, especially towards the end [of the movie], can make you sick to your stomach. You go home afterwards, and it’s quite stressful. It is what it is, and everybody knew what we were getting into. It’s bone-chilling, but it’s a portrait of the south in these times. It’s as unsentimental and as real as possible.”

Mudbound is available on Netflix now!

FYI: Mary is wearing earrings by Walters Faith and rings by Sara Weinstock.

Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Stone, & A-List Stars Discuss Being a Woman in Hollywood

Jennifer Lawrence, Emma Stone, Mary J. Blige, Jessica Chastain, Allison Janney and Saoirse Ronan are all featured on the cover of THR‘s annual dramatic actress roundtable issue.

Here’s what the stars had to share with the mag:

Jennifer, on being “punished” for standing up for herself on set: “Sometimes — I’ve had this happen: I finally made the decision to stand up for myself, and then I went to go to the bathroom at work and one of the producers stopped me and was like, ‘You know, we can hear you on the microphone, you’ve been really unruly.’ Which was not true, but basically my job was threatened because the director said something fucked up to me and I said, ‘That’s sick, you can’t talk to me like that,’ and then I was punished, and I got afraid that I wasn’t going to be hired again … I was called difficult and a nightmare.”

Jessica, on why things in Hollywood need to change: “You know what [Sorkin] said to me the other day when we were talking about what’s going on in the industry? He said that he was talking to his daughter, Roxy, and saying, ‘Listen, when you go into the workforce, if a guy grabs you or does something with you, you can scream, you can fight back.’ And she turned to him and said, ‘Dad, why are you teaching me to defend myself and not teaching those guys not to be creeps?’ The onus isn’t on women. Society has a way of blaming victims: You didn’t come out soon enough or you’re not asking for enough money. But the onus is on others not to abuse their power.”

Allison, on the pressure to look perfect: “For I, Tonya, I got to do this old-age makeup, and I was like three hours in this makeup, and then I saw myself and I was like, ‘Oh, my God, this is fantastic. I don’t have to worry about my jowls.’ It was so freeing to go and work on a part that I didn’t care what I looked like. Even seeing it, I was like, ‘Oh, God, I can watch myself because I look so awful.’”
