Haley Bennett Interview – Rules Don’t Apply – “I wasn’t prepared to go through the kind of disappointment and heartbreak…”
Every year or so, a young actress is anointed as Hollywood’s latest “It Girl.” We’ve seen it happen to Felicity Jones, Kristen Stewart, Jennifer Lawrence, and Emma Stone, for example. Now the spotlight is falling on Haley Bennett, the fresh-faced American blonde who is riding the wave of three big movies which have made her the talk of the film industry.
Q: But it proved much harder for you to follow up on that breakthrough?
BENNETT: Yes. I somehow thought it was going to be much easier because of that and instead it turned out to be a very long and hard road. I wasn’t prepared to go through the kind of disappointment and heartbreak that comes with not being able to get those roles that I wanted so badly.
