Actress Agnes Bruckner has appeared in a lot of television shows and movies over the years and she recently played the role of Anna Nicole Smith in the movie of her life. Now, Agnes has opened up about playing the role and, in particular, what drew her to it.
Bruckner told The Hollywood Reporter, "What attracted me to the role was that the script was so deep and cool and different. … And I met with Mary Harron, the director -- I'd always been a big fan of American Psycho [which Harron helmed] -- and that really attracted me to the role."
She added, "We wanted to show people a different side of Anna Nicole that they hadn't seen before. That was really intriguing to me. It was a chance to do a little more work and research and try to find out why she did some of the things she did. That was the selling point for me, to be able to show a deeper side of her."
As well as starring Agnes Bruckner as Anna Nicole Smith, the movie also stars Martin Landau as Smith's millionaire husband, J. Howard Marshall; Cary Elwes as his son, E. Pierce Marshall; Virginia Madsen as her mom, Virgie Arthur; and Adam Goldberg as her attorney/confidant, Howard K. Stern.
