As many are spending the Thanksgiving holiday with relatives, some may find they need a breather or two. Luckily, THR has released a new roundtable interview from its Oscar series that makes for a fascinating and entertaining watch. This 50-minute discussion involves a group of actresses that are in the mix for awards consideration this year: Julianne Moore (Still Alice), Reese Witherspoon (Wild), Amy Adams (Big Eyes), Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything), Patricia Arquette (Boyhood), Hilary Swank (The Homesman), and Laura Dern (Wild). The resulting video is a candid talk that touches on topics like the pressure of playing real people, the uncomfortableness of sex scenes, and more. It’s well worth a watch.
Check out the actress roundtable video after the jump, and be sure to check out the writers roundtable if you missed it. For more on the current state of the Best Actress Oscar race, peruse my recent Best Actress edition of Oscar Beat.
