“So I did everything from reading my scenes out loud in English and then we kind of reworked on translating them to really get the kind of sensitivity and the emotion and the subtext that I had in my acting, hopefully… It was a lot of work,” Alicia concluded.

Richard Glatzer's Husband Releases Statement on His Death

Richard Glatzer‘s husband Wash Westmoreland is speaking out in an eloquent statement following the death of his soul-mate and Still Alice collaborator.

“I am devastated. Rich was my soul mate, my collaborator, my best friend and my life. Seeing him battle ALS for four years with such grace and courage inspired me and all who knew him,” Wash said in his statement. “In this dark time, I take some consolation in the fact that he got to see Still Alice go out into the world. He put his heart and soul into that film, and the fact that it touched so many people was a constant joy to him.”

“Thank you to everyone for this huge outpouring of love. Richard was a unique guy – opinionated, funny, caring, gregarious, generous, and so so smart. A true artist and a brilliant man. I treasure every day of the short twenty years we had together,” Wash continued. “I cannot believe he has gone. But in my heart and the hearts of those who loved him he will always be alive.”
