Julia Louis-Dreyfus fans have long felt she would do well on the big screen. In her new romantic comedy, 'Enough Said,' she is proving them right. The former 'Seinfield' star recently spoke out on her experiences filming the movie, and what it was like to work with the late James Gandolfini.
Julia plays Eva in the film, a single mother who works as a masseuse. In a way, the character is busy taking care of everyone except herself until she meets James Gandolfini's character. Turns out, the on-screen chemistry between the two characters was real:
"He is such - was such - a gifted actor that it was easy to do long, conversation-driven scenes with him," Dreyfus stated in an interview with Time Out Chicago. "With Jim... it really did feel natural. There was a genuineness to the way he played those moments with me that you really felt like you right there."
The actress also stated that she has long admired the work of writer and director Nicole Holofcener. The two have a lot in common, according to Julia, and share a similar comedic philosophy. The actress, who has played roles such as Elaine on 'Seinfield,' and Selina Meyer on 'Veep' says that she's found her niche in comedic humiliation.
Enough Said released September 18,and has received good reviews from critics thus far.
