This makes you realize how quickly time flies! A year ago today, Mary Elizabeth Winstead finally wed her boyfriend of several years, writer/director Riley Stearns. Here at Miss-Winstead.com, Melanie and myself wanted to wish you both the happiest of wedding anniversaries and hope you two enjoy not only your first anniversary as husband and wife, but enjoy creating new memories and remembering old ones.
Mary, we can’t say how much we absolutely love you not only as an actress, but as a regular, down-to-earth person.
I could ramble on about how fantastic you are as an actress, how much me and Melanie love your films, and how we both think you and Riley are totally adorable together, but I’ll keep this message short, and wish you both tons and tons of success in both your personal lives and your professional lives and we can’t wait to see what the future will bring for the both of you.
Congrats on finding your Ramona Flowers, Riley and we’re looking forward to Magnificat and any other projects you decide to do with Mary and once again, have an amazing time celebrating your anniversary!

Last year Mary was also nominated in this category, but she didn’t win. Let’s try to get her in the #1 spot this year.
Two days ago, Mary talked a little about Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter and in part 2 of her interview with The Playlist, Mary reveals more about ALVH, Smashed and Die Hard 5. Click on the Playlist link above to read the full interview, where she talks more about Smashed and her rumored role in The F-Word.
On Abraham Lincoln:Vampire Hunter:
“When it starts out, we’re very young and just dating and courting and it takes it right up to the presidency and the assassination and everything. So I got to span the life of someone from 19 to 46 and really go from this feisty young woman into this sort of force of nature who’s helping her husband fight along with the country. It was a really fun role to play.”
Aside from the vampires of course, ‘Lincoln’ will be a largely historically accurate telling of the president’s life. “It’s our real history of America [as if] we really did have vampires amongst us. Abraham Lincoln, during his presidency and fights against slavery, was also fighting against these vampires and the evil that was existing in our country. It’s sort of this wild action/adventure period piece,” she added.
On Die Hard 5:
I’m assuming I will not be [in that] because I have not heard anything,” Winstead laughs. “But it’s cool, all the updates and everything. I’m excited to see what happens with it.”
“[Aaron Paul and I] play a married couple who are both alcoholics. It’s a really great script. Basically my character hits rock bottom really hard and decides to get sober, but he has no interest in getting sober. And it’s just about how our relationship kind of disintegrates because of it,” she elaborated.
In a new interview with Comic Book Resources, while talking about “The Thing”, Mary’s co-star Eric Christian Olsen discussed about working with Mary a little and said nothing but kind things about her:
While Akinnuoye-Agbaje had nothing but positive things to say about Edgerton, Olsen praised star Mary Elizabeth Winstead, telling reporters that working with her was the highlight of the movie for him.
“She’s a rock star. She’s amazing. I mean, she’s our Ripley. She’s the toughest character in the movie,” he said. As quick to praise Edgerton, Olsen continued, “Joel Edgerton is, I think, one of the most talented actors of my generation. … When they got Mary I was ecstatic, and when they got Joel I went, ‘Oh, this is the type of movie they’re trying to make, they are hiring actors. That philosophy was across the board.”
Meanwhile, as I’m sure you’ve noticed, caps from various interviews and the latest clips have been added. See all the latest pics in the gallery.
& the best part of this interview? A trailer will be out in February! During the press junket for “The Thing”, Mary spoke with The Playlist where she gave us an update about Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter. Here are some of the highlights:
“I haven’t seen any [footage], but I know they’ve been editing and I know that they’re really excited about it,” Winstead said. “I know there’s going to be a trailer out in like February, or something, so I’m really excited about that. But I wasn’t a part of most of the action stuff in that movie, which I liked that, because I kind of needed a little bit of a break [laughs]. So I’m going to be like an audience member when it comes to that stuff, because I have no idea.”
Meanwhile, Winstead said the sequences that she shot featured a more traditional look, making those set pieces an even sharper contrast for viewers. “I know that it’s going to look really cool,” she said. “I know that the stuff we did looks so beautiful, just like a classic period piece, so I think it’s going to be so cool to have that meld with these crazy action sequences.”
In spite of the fact that the film is a mash-up of real-life characters and fictional creatures, Winstead said that she and her fellow cast members put a lot of work into making sure as much of the story as possible was historically accurate. “We definitely spent a lot of time on the history,” she explained.
