About two weeks ago, The Wrapposted a clip of Mary discussing taking on the role of Huntress in the upcoming Birds of Prey movie and now, they have released another part of that interview with Mary talking about her role in Gemini Man and how she hopes technology in the future doesn’t make actors obsolete. Along with the interview clip below, they also did a very beautiful photo shoot with her which you can view in the gallery.

“My hope and my optimistic point of view is that ultimately people will always need that human element, you know, to connect to,” she said. “As time goes on and the technology gets further and further along, everybody might follow that for a little while, but hopefully you’ll always need the real human being to keep it grounded. We really hope so in the acting community that that’ll be the case.”
Collider recently sat down with Mary to discuss Gemini Man. You can watch the interview below. On top of that, they also talked about the roles she did early on in her career, working with co-star Will Smith, director Ang Lee, what it was like working on Birds of Prey with Margot Robbie, why she’d love to see a Scott Pilgrim vs. The World sequel and more!
With Gemini Man set to hit theaters next weekend on October 11, Mary has been busy promoting the film. Back in August, she visited the IMDB Show and though her interview won’t be released until next Thursday, I have added photos from her visit into the gallery.
More recently, Mary sat down with Collider to talk about the movie among other things in her career. In the clip that was released, Mary talked about how she passed on starring in 2004’s Mean Girls. The full interview will be out next week, but in the mean time, you can view the clip below:

Total Film magazine was on the set of Gemini Man last year and during their visit, they managed to snag Mary for a quick Q&A. In the interview, Mary describes her character and how she meets Will’s character Henry, how much she enjoyed playing the role of DIA agent Danny and how Ang Lee described his vision of the film to her. You can read all about it as I’ve uploaded all the scans into the gallery!
Mary was also asked about Birds of Prey and she said the following:
“You can expect something really fun and a bit wild and totally unique. Everyday we were there, we were doing something that just felt really weird and funny and unlike anything else I’ve ever seen before in this genre. It was incredibly exciting to get to do that. We really got to work. We just played, and we had fun.”

German website filmstarts.de sat down with Mary on the set of’ Gemini Man earlier this year where they talked about the movie. I have copy/pasted and translated the entire interview for all of you to checkout with the rest of it under the cut.
FILMSTARTS: What made you particularly excited about “Gemini Man”?
Mary Elizabeth Winstead: Oh, there are many things. It’s just a fantastic, rare opportunity to make a big, fun and entertaining action movie that has a heart and says something. The film asks questions about life, aging and aging, it is about existential crises. Of course I still have the chance to work with Ang Lee. I was so excited to meet him and to audition.And now I’m allowed to work with him. The combination of Ang and Will Smith, the role and the dimension of the film are terribly exciting for me.
FILMSTARTS: Can you tell us something about the scene you are currently shooting and watching?
Mary Elizabeth Winstead:Naturally. You are really lucky. We are now shooting the first proper week of action and weapons, which is the climax of the movie. It’s going to be dangerous to Will’s character Henry. We are going to flee, but we do not know who we are. This is true for most of the film, but it is becoming clearer and clearer that we are running away from our own organization for which we are actually working. This raises a lot of questions that the characters pose about themselves. Henry is already beyond this point. He is a bit dulled and disillusioned with life and his work, while my character clings to the old ideals of what it means to work for the government and the country. And also to have the pride. She wants to find out what the government really does and why she is chasing this innocent man. That makes them question everything. We’re just trying to survive while the hunters are trying hard to kill us.
FILMSTARTS: The genre cinema is found in your filmography again and again. What motivates you to shoot these films?
Mary Elizabeth Winstead: I just like this physical game, that’s exciting for me. I like characters who know what to do to survive in a dangerous situation. I’ve done horror and sci-fi movies so far and just a few action movies like ” Die Hard 4.0 ” or something.But not so many. This action-drama terrain here is new to me. It’s really refreshing to play someone who knows how to survive and is not just some love interest. That’s why I enjoy finding genre pieces like this, where there are not as many genre stereotypes as you’d expect. I find that very satisfying.
