Melissa Rivers Talks Playing Mom Joan in Movie 'Joy'

Melissa Rivers is fresh-faced while making her way through LAX Airport for a flight out of town on Tuesday (December 22) in Los Angeles.

The 47-year-old television personality recently spoke with Vanity Fair about playing her mom Joan Rivers in the upcoming movie Joy.

“I think she would be a little miffed that they didn’t have Cate Blanchett playing her,” Melissa said. “I think she would have wanted Cate or Helen Mirren, had it been in the later years, because, of course, when you think of my mother you think of willowy and English.”

“I wanted to make sure that it didn’t became a caricature or an impersonation,” Melissa added. “I did work very hard on the speech pattern, and the tone, because I didn’t want it to become an impersonation. That’s what I was most frightened of. This was at the beginning of QVC and our [fashion] company is still going. It was such a big part of her life.”

Melissa Rivers Plays Mom Joan Rivers in 'Joy' - First Look Clip!

Melissa Rivers transforms into her late mom Joan Rivers while playing her in the upcoming movie Joy.

The 47-year-old Fashion Police producer plays Joan during a scene set at QVC and she interacts with Jennifer Lawrence‘s character Joy Mangano, a real-life entrepreneur.

“It was David‘s idea,” Melissa told People. “I literally one day got a call saying David O. Russell would like to meet you. Huh? What?”

“I thought, ‘Seriously when am I ever going to get to work with Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence and David O. Russell?’” she added. “I was like, ‘Okay, I’m in.’”

“My mother had a couple lovely encounters with Bradley and she was a fan of Jen‘s even though there was a situation once at Fashion Police where someone said something and Jennifer didn’t like it and kind of fired back,” Melissa continued. “It wasn’t my mother who said it and it kind of got lost in translation. The first thing Jennifer said was, ‘Even though we had that disagreement that really had nothing to do with her, I was a huge fan,’ and quoted back her favorite Fashion Police line ever to me: ‘That dress is so ugly it looks like it would be good at math.’ So here she is quoting my own show back to me, then she said to David, ‘I’m so happy you brought me someone to play with!’”

Watch Emmy Rossum in the Season 6 'Shameless' Trailer!

Emmy Rossum is all smiles while volunteering for the Thanksgiving for the Homeless event held at the Los Angeles Mission on Wednesday (November 25) in Los Angeles.

The 29-year-old actress was joined by Frankie Grande, Melissa Rivers, Cheyenne Jackson, and Niecy Nash.

Showtime just released the season six trailer for Emmy‘s critically-acclaimed show Shameless.

The show picks up a few months after last year’s finale, as the Gallaghers prepare for yet another long Chicago winter. Season six will see more than just the arctic Lake Michigan winds whipping through the Southside. Change is hard, and the Gallaghers are as surprised as anyone at how life is turning out for them. But the question remains, as they come into their own and find out who they are, is it really possible that the Gallaghers could grow apart for good?

Shameless premieres on Sunday, January 10 @ 9 PM ET/PT!

Joan Rivers Remembered By Melissa One Year After Death

Joan Rivers tragically died one year ago today (September 4) and her daughter Melissa Rivers is paying tribute to her in a touching post.

“Today marks one year since my mother passed,” the 47-year-old Fashion Police host tweeted on her mom’s account.

“This was the year of firsts: first holidays, first birthdays, first everythings without mom, without grandma,” Melissa continued. “While it’s been difficult, I’ve been amazed by the outpouring of love and overwhelming kindness we’ve received from family, friends, and people whose lives were touched by the woman they knew as Joan — a woman we all miss so very much.”

Earlier this week, Melissa revealed that she and her 14-year-old son Cooper scattered some of Joan‘s ashes in Wyoming last month. Watch the interview below.
