Also, here’s some of the interview. Full interview can be read at the link posted.

I imagine it must be difficult for any actor to star in a remake or prequel of a popular film, but especially so in the “horror” genre where the fans are so passionate about the genre and its cult classics. Did you feel the weight of fans’ expectations on your shoulders while working on The Thing?
As a fan of the Carpenter version myself, I was actually hesitant to take this on because I absolutely did not want to tarnish the legacy of that film in any way. So I completely understand how many fans feel. What drew me to this was the intelligence of the script and the role, as well as the passion of everyone involved. I really got the sense that the filmmakers wanted to respectful and make something great. And I feel that’s exactly what they’ve done. They made something that can appeal to fans of the ’82 film, but also bring something new and excited to a generation who may never have otherwise heard of it.

Your character, Kate Lloyd, is very different from those we know from Carpenter’s film — you might even say she’s unique to the horror genre itself, would you agree?
When I read the script, I was so please with the way the lead female role had been handled. She wasn’t a tough masculine tomboy, she wasn’t somebody’s love interest — she was an intelligent and strong, but in a very realistic way.

Must have invigorating to play that kind of role?
I was so happy to play an action heroine who didn’t have superpowers, who wasn’t perfect looking, who wasn’t in spandex or a ripped tank top — just a woman put in a dire situation trying to find the strength to make it to the next day. It was my hope to put a character on screen who was just a real woman, and one that both men and women could root for and respect.

Mary Tells Us A Funny Joke and Poses in Lingerie for Esquire

Check out this new video of Mary telling us a funny joke and a new outtake for in the gallery. She also opens up about being accident prone.

About the jokester:

For someone who grew up as an aspiring ballerina (too tall, in the end), 26-year-old actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead is accident-prone. Take, for instance, her recent bike ride: “I think I’m better at it than I am,” she says. “I was going downhill really fast and got caught on a fence with my handlebars, went flying off, and landed on my nose on the concrete.” Or that time she was stunt training for Scott Pilgrim vs. the World and tore the dura around her spine. (It holds your spinal fluid.) Or that time she was learning how to use a flamethrower for her upcoming role in The Thing (out October 14) and slipped in a pool of gasoline. “I think the stunt guys actually became worried about how cool I was about [using] it.” We can only hope her next movie will involve standing still, lots of pillows, and a stunt double.

New Photo Shoot and Interview with Mary About The Thing!

I love this photo. Check out this new pic of Mary featured in the LA Times’ Hero Complex where she talks about The Thing. Here’s some of the excerpts:

For actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead, the scariest part about starring in a new prequel to the film, also called “The Thing” and opening Friday, was the risk of not living up to a cult favorite.

“I think there was some pressure going into it knowing that we were going to be watched very closely and that if we didn’t do it justice, there was going to be a lot of anger,” Winstead said in Los Angeles.

“I didn’t open the script and see a bunch of retreads of the same characters that are in the first film, who are so beloved,” said Winstead, a self-described fan of Carpenter’s film, which was itself inspired by 1951?s “The Thing From Another World.” “I saw a totally new story with new characters and new dynamics.”

“I kind of accepted the fact that she’s not funny,” Winstead said of Kate, for whom she drew inspiration from her oldest sister, a neurologist. “She’s very serious.… She’s very focused, she’s very intelligent.”

And here’s what she says regarding her career beyond “Smashed”:

After that, it’s anyone’s guess what the Los Angeles-based actress will tackle, which suits her just fine.

“Whatever your last film was is usually how people see you,” Winstead said. “I try with every film to go in the opposite direction … so that nobody will ever be able to figure out exactly what I am.”

Eric Christian Olsen Praises Mary; New Caps Uploaded

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.
