Interviews between journalists and actors are a dime a dozen. But interviews between two actors? Not so much. The conversations between two people who share the same art are often illuminating for their candor. This awards season, we’re treated to a series of videos from Variety pairing together actors such as Annette Benning and Naomie Harris, Viola Davis and Tom Hanks, Natalie Portman and Michelle Williams, Emma Stone and Molly Shannon, Matthew McConaughey and Jeff Bridges, Amy Adams and Andrew Garfield, Ryan Reynolds and Taraji P. Henson, Adam Driver and Michael Shannon, and Nicole Kidman and Casey Affleck.
The conversations range from the funny (Reynolds/Henson and McConaughey/Bridges) to the insightful and reflective, with the Hanks/Davis conversation seeming to get the most traction for their discussion of the technical processes and challenges behind acting.
