Mary recently did an interview with Details.com about her role in Alex of Venice and The Returned among other things. Click the link to read the full interview. Below are some highlights:
DETAILS: You’re currently on A&E’s resurrection drama The Returned. Do you believe in life after death?
Mary Elizabeth Winstead: I’m not sure if I believe in it. I certainly hope that something like that could be true. But I also wouldn’t quite call myself a believer. I’d say I am open—I’m open to possibilities.
DETAILS: You’re a renowned “scream queen” because of all the horror movies on your resume. What scares you in real life?
Mary Elizabeth Winstead: I’m scared of complacency in my career. I have a real fear of getting too comfortable and not reaching my full potential in life because of that.
DETAILS: What else would people be surprised to know about you?
Mary Elizabeth Winstead: When it comes to people in the industry, I tend to be quite different in terms the goals that I have. I just want to do good work and work with other talented people. I kind of shy away from the sort of eagerness and neediness that is seen a lot around here: People who are desperate for fame. And I’m actually surprised by people who are surprised by the fact that there would be somebody in the entertainment industry who wouldn’t be attracted to those things. I mean, it takes so much work to put yourself out there like that. If your goal is to be famous, it really is a full-time job. You’ve go to sell yourself and make yourself a brand and do all this stuff. But I’ve never been interested in that side of things.
