Happy 45th Birthday, Matthew Perry! (August, the 19th)
“Y ou know in the first film and in “The Avengers” it was kind of a punch punch kick kick which is great but you had to show why this guy belongs on the Avengers so we just wanted to try and step up the power and speed in his fighting ability… I did gymnastics which was something I kinda wanted to do in my life anyway, for years I was like “you know what.. I think I’m gonna take gymnastics” you know it would be fun to flip and tumble and spin. But he has very aerial combat style so we said I think we wanna try and cooperate this more fluid approach to fighting so we put me in some gymnastics classes . . When the Russos first told me they were like ” it’s pretty early but I think we’re getting for Pierce” and you don’t know who they gonna say , you never know who they gonna say in the marvel world and they said Robert Redford and I literally was like .. “look ..listen .. listen whatever I’m getting for this movie he can have it.”
"Imagine; I used to have really long blonde hair, always wearing heels, lots of make-up. I had been someone who was highly feminised and had chosen to look that way, partly because I was 6ft 3in but also I was into that aesthetic. I knew it had to be stripped away. I knew this would be an important part, not just for my work but in terms of my own development, because I would be confronting elements of myself that I didn’t want to confront (…) To see yourself displayed as unattractive, large, masculine, it’s quite tough… But I know it’s just perspective. A social conditioning that causes us to view these traits in a woman in a negative way." — Gwendoline Christie
