While two beautiful new images from David Fincher’s Mank set fill the wait that separates us from the film, Gary Oldman says he had some trouble looking natural.
The movie for which Gary Oldman won the Oscar, The darkest hour, is also the one for which it has become most unrecognizable, having to look like Winston Churchill. The trick, so boring to “wear”, will certainly have made the actor’s days boring, but it was also a security in which to take refuge, the viaticum for full adherence to the role. Maybe that’s why, when David Fincher he told Oldman that in Mank it had to look like he woke up every morning, the Dracula of Francis Ford Coppola he had a bad quarter of an hour. He himself recounted the terrible moment in an interview with Empire. “I thought: damn!” – he said. “I don’t remember the last time it happened. I’ve always had something on my face! I thought: I don’t know anything about it. I don’t look at all. Mank. There is a similarity between Tom Burke e Orson Welles e Amanda Seyfried remember Marion Davies, e Charles Dance has a pale makeup that makes it look like William Randolph Hearst. But I had nothing to hold on to. But then, when we started, I thought: Dave he was right. No tricks. Nothing at all. Only: here I am. I threw myself. “
