Haley Bennett

I think the point is to stop thinking about yourself. I started looking at myself as a commodity rather than a human being with a life, and you know some days I don’t feel as confident and that’s ok too. Some days I feel like crap and sometimes I feel tired and sometimes I feel like I’m never gonna be where I want to be. But then you say that’s ok. That’s ok. It’s just today. – Haley Bennett, episode 160 on Talk Easy with Sam Fragoso

Haley Bennett joins us this week for a reflective look at her life as an actress, starting with her role as a pop-star in Music and Lyrics to her newest film, the disturbing domestic thriller, Swallow. We discuss the serendipity of motherhood, the perils of acting at an impressionable young age, and how she managed to find her artistic voice amid Hollywood pressures. Plus, a Terence Malick story!

As for the outro– you can (and should) follow writer Robert Daniels on Twitter and read his work over at RogerEbert.com
