Mary looks very elegant in a brand new photoshoot with The Laterals. In the interview, she talks about her career and wanting to either direct in the future or star in a play. You can read the whole thing by clicking the link above and head to the gallery to check out the new photos!
Tell us about your very first time acting. If you could go back and give that younger version of yourself one piece of advice, what would it be?
Well, my first professional acting job came when I was twelve, as a guest star on a television show. I loved it. I was overwhelmed with joy just to be there, to be a part of it. I would tell myself to hold onto that feeling and don’t sweat the rest. I’d tell myself not to waste time on self-doubt and trying to be everything to everyone all of the time. I’d say just be yourself because ultimately, that will be enough.
Most people recognize you from your breakout role as Ramona Flowers in Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World. That must have been such a fun experience. Can you share with us one of your favorite moments or learnings from that time?
Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World was a really special experience for a lot of reasons, and it brought some of the most important people in my life to me and I’m so thankful for that. Several of my closest friends came out of making that movie. It was a real challenge and we were doing something that felt really new and different, and I think that bonded us in a way. So Ramona Flowers will always be close to my heart!
This leads us to your upcoming project All About Nina, coming out later this month. Tell us what we can look forward to with this film.
I’m so proud of All About Nina. Making this movie with our writer-director Eva Vives was really special and something I’ll never forget. I play a stand-up comedian working through trauma in a very male-dominated world. I guess you could call it a comedic drama or a very dark comedy. It goes so many places and because when I’m playing Nina, I went to all those places with her. It was intense and fun and exciting and I can’t wait for people to see it.
We are also excited about Gemini Man, which was directed by Ang Lee. Tell us a little more about this project and what was your experience was like working with him.
Ang is amazing. In his soft-spoken way, he expects a lot from his actors and his crew, pushing everyone to be their best. I have so much respect for him and working with him was a real privilege. I hope I get to do it again one day.
Last night in Los Angeles, Mary and her fellow ‘All About Nina‘ director Eva Vives attended the SAG-AFTRA Foundation’s screening of the film. I have added photos of her at the event into the gallery, and you can also watch the Q&A interview below. The film will hit select theaters on September 28.
With the film being released in 10 days(!!), I have added a couple of new HQ stills of Mary in her upcoming film All About Nina to the gallery. You can view them by clicking on the pics below. Hopefully more will be coming out real soon.
In related news, All About Nina will also show at USC in the Ray Stark Family Theatre. Director Eva Vives will attend along with editor Saira Haider. There’s free admission and open to the public, but RSVPs are required. You can find more info HERE.

The day has finally arrived! The debut trailer for Mary’s film All About Nina hit the web last night and as always, this looks like it’s going to be great! I’ve added the poster/banner as well as HD screen caps of Mary from the trailer, all of which you can view below/in the gallery. Additionally, Mary spoke with EW about taking on the role.
Trailer Screen Caps
“It was an incredible opportunity to play somebody who really runs the gamut of what life can throw at you. It’s emotional, it’s funny, it’s dark, it’s romantic. It really has a little bit of everything.”
As for working with rapper/actor Common, Mary had this to say…
“At first their connection is a bit strange because neither of them has ever met anybody like the other before,” Winstead says. “It’s setting something off in each other that neither of them really understands, and that’s particularly difficult for Nina in the beginning because she has a way of operating with men that she’s very comfortable with, even though it’s very unhealthy. When she meets Rafe, it’s so different than what she’s used to that she doesn’t quite know how to handle it.”
The film will hit select theaters on September 28.
Mary is currently in New York City, and she was spotted arriving at her hotel yesterday afternoon (July 31). I’ve added a few pictures of her heading into the building and you can view the whole set in the gallery. So great to see new pictures of her again!
In other news, Mary’s latest film All About Nina will be released on September 28. I will have more news and a trailer soon so be on the lookout!
Now that Mary did some promotional work at the Tribeca Film Festival for her new film “All About Nina” in New York, we have some new photoshoots to look at for the new year and they’re all fantastic (as usual). All of them were taken during the festival. Check out the gallery for all the great new photos.
I have added new candids of Mary leaving the set of ‘Gemini Man‘ earlier this week in Colombia before she headed off to New York to premiere her new film ‘All About Nina’ at the Tribeca Film Festival. Head to the gallery to check out the pics.
Tonight in New York City, Mary attended the world premiere of her new film, All About Nina. At the event she was joined by her co-star Common and the director of the flick, Eva Vives. I’ve begun adding some photos of Mary at the event and from the after party so check back since I will continue to update. Additionally, two of the first reviews have come out. One from co-star Jay Mohr and another from unseenfilms.
Head to the gallery to check out the brand new pics. Mary looks stunning, you guys!
From the #AllaboutNina premiere screening. Respect to my family @common for being a true Leading Man. Friends, #MaryElizabethWinstead will be nominated for an #Oscar
One of the single greatest performances I’ve ever seen in film.
I’m grateful to have shared a screen with her.
That the film works as well as it does is due in large part to the cast especially Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Common who make their characters real people we really like. Winstead should be singled out and up for numerous awards with a performance that is deceptively simple (a comedian with issues? Piece of cake right?) but in fact reveals itself to be filled with very real and very raw emotion. She is not the typical by the numbers movie girl but one many of us know or are ourselves. ALL ABOUT NINA is one of the best of the early crop of films I’ve seen at Tribeca and it is highly recommended.
