John Turturro has been working very hard, out promoting his new film Fading Gigolo, which co-stars Woody Allen. He has taken himself around the world, and is now back in the states. With co-star Vanessa Paradis, they sat down for a Q&A with Film Independent before a screening. It’s a lengthy half hour full of nice moments, and it’s our video of the week.
Funny things we learn: Paradis’s portrayal of a Hasidic Jew was so convincing that it fooled Allen. How Elaine Stritch helped inspire a character and a film. And plenty of anecdotes on filming with Woody Allen.
Fading Gigolo opens in the US on 18th April 2014 – just under a week!
