Ann Dowd calls out fellow actress on The Handmaid’s Tale

In this really good interview Dowd mentions a well-established guest star on The Handmaid’s Tale as being “difficult” but doesn’t name her.

It’s Marisa Tomei, right? She’s got an awful reputation.

I had no idea Ann Dowd had that buried underneath all those costumes. She looks great!

Does not.

She also confirms Denzel is a dick. Love her!

[quote] And she doesn’t shy from discussing a brusque soap director she clashed with early in her career, or even Denzel Washington, whom she reports as being dismissive on the set of Philadelphia. “I thought: oh no, don’t do that, because you’re so damn good!”

She’s a fantastic actress, and everybody knows it. So she can just be frank. Love it!

I have loved her since Nothing Sacred and when she was nominated for Handmaids Tale I sent her a massage through Facebook like a fangurl. Her response, which I never expected, was just as nice and sweet as you could hope it would be. There is nothing like finding out an actor you admire is a good person too.

They don't realize that when they don't name names, they cast a shadow on everyone

Don't worry, r6, she wasn't talking about you.

What is it with actors being described as "brave and fearless" talking about how they worked with someone who was a pain in the ass or who didn't like them. EVERYONE who works deals with that on a daily basis and doesn't get paid thousands to do it.

Because no one cares what you have to say, Defacto. You obviously don’t have a job anyway, that much seems abundantly clear.

But when Dowd or someone like her speaks out, it could have a real negative impact on her careers because thousands or even millions of people will read it.

There, understand now?

[R9] You make no sense.

Assuming that her story isn't fiction, she didn't name who the difficult female co-star was so I don't see how the "thousands or even millions" of readers are going to give a shit at all or how this will impact her career in any way. It will, however, provide a good tagline for the Daily Mail though. And when she mentions Denzel she praises him in the same sentence for being " ... so damn good!". The journo even adds a story about her supposedly defending a woman copping abuse during the interview!

Clearly a bullshit puff piece to flog her latest venture.

But it IS Tomei, right? She’s the only one who fits the description. But Tomei didn’t actually share any scenes with Dowd, did she?
