Glamour Magazine “Save The Date” interview

Check out Lizzy’s interview with Glamour Magazine to discuss Save The Date.

Bachelorette, New Girl, Masters of Sex got picked up, and now Save the Date–this has been a big year for you.

Lizzy: It feels different mainly because I’ve spent the majority of this year promoting the films [not making them]. I do tend to want to be working, but when Masters of Sex got picked up and I knew I was going to have this steady gig waiting for me, I decided to take some time off. I turned 30 this year, so I’ve gotten more thoughtful.

How did you celebrate 3-0?

Lizzy: I throw big parties every year, obnoxiously fancy parties, with one of my best friends whose birthday is close to mine. This year, I did a weekend in Palm Springs, with sixty people. My birthday’s right at the beginning of the summer, so it was the first trip of summer for most of us.

You and Alison play sisters in the film, and the vibe is startlingly realistic. How’d you get there with each other?

Lizzy: We went out for drinks and dinner and had a very fun time. When I meet an actor I’m going to be opposite in an intimate relationship, I know right away if it’s going to require a lot of effort. Within five seconds with Alison, it was very clear that it would be easy. We both have sisters, too, so we know how that relationship feels in our real lives. You really are mean to your sister like you’re not mean to anyone else.

The main tension between your two characters is different attitudes towards marriage. Alison’s can’t wait to get hitched–your character has no intentions of doing so. Do you feel like at this age that starts to become a divisive thing among friends?

Lizzy: I feel lucky because most of my friends aren’t married. So I don’t feel that, ‘oh, step on it, you’re thirty.’ Thirty is not the same thirty it was ten years ago or twenty years ago.

I think your love interest, Mark Webber, might be our new biggest crush. He seems to be everywhere all of a sudden.

Lizzy: Which is a really great thing because he’s one of those guys everybody likes. He’s not phony. He has this instant soulful vibe.

You’ve become somewhat of a go-to for the smart, edgy roles–but with this movie, in particular, I felt like your character could have been our beloved Janis Ian of Mean Girls grown up. Like she’s grown into herself, but this is the girl who wore a purple tux to prom–she’s not buying the whole bride thing so easily.

Lizzy: I think that quite a few of the characters I’ve played as a grownup could have been Janis Ian as kids. I was kind of like that in high school. I’ve been very lucky to have so much practice in this type of role, in which the tough character is usually actually the most vulnerable.

Outside of Michael Mohan, who wrote and directed Save the Date, you’ve largely worked with female creators and strong actresses of late. How is it different than working with men?

Lizzy: I will say Michael Mohan writes women better than most women. But yeah–[New Girl creator] Liz Meriwether works her ass off and has an amazing, clear voice. Girls writing for girls is kind of a dream for me. It adds an element. Funny girls are the thing right now, and it wasn’t that way for me the vast majority of my career. If you were the funny one, they tried to make you look busted. You weren’t the star, you were the best friend.

What are some of the female-relationship movies that kept you inspired even when funny, smart, real women weren’t exactly “the thing?”

Lizzy: Postcards from the Edge. Death Becomes Her. And… Thelma and Louise.

Bust Magazine’s “Save The Date” interview

Check out Bust Magazine’s interview with Lizzy where they talked about Save The Date, marriage and Freaks and Geeks.

The words “save the date” immediately bring forth images of white gowns, floral arrangements, and choosing between chicken or fish. But the film Save the Date, directed by Michael Mohan (who co-wrote the film with Jeffrey Brown), doesn’t focus on those clichés. Instead, it centers on Sarah (played by Lizzy Caplan), who’s trying to figure out what she wants in life. Instead of saying yes to her boyfriend Kevin’s public proposal, made soon after they move in together, Sarah breaks up with him. We spoke with Caplan about her new flick, getting hitched, and the concept of “forever.”

Caplan’s character in the film, Sarah, is the kind that the actress consistently nails: a sweetly sardonic, down-to-earth lady you’d love to hang out with. Mohan describes her as “a rare actress who not only has an amazing mixture of strength and vulnerability, she’s also just very down to earth and I think many women can completely relate to her.” Caplan says that when she took the role, “I was nervous that people were going to think that it was a movie about weddings—I don’t think it’s about that at all. I thought it would potentially be a little misleading, but that’s okay.”

Most viewers can probably relate to Sarah, who clearly loves Kevin but can’t commit to a lifetime in the relationship. She has to make the decision to end things, though she can’t quite put her finger on what’s wrong. As Caplan describes Sarah, “She’s just a little slow in terms of relationships, the normal progression of a relationship.” So why does Sarah decide to move in with Kevin in the first place? Caplan theorizes, “I always imagined she was getting pressure from a lot of people saying that it was the next step: you move in.” There clearly isn’t a lack of love between them—the film shows an especially sweet scene of the couple slow-dancing in the apartment they share, him shirtless, her in underwear. But Caplan says, “I always saw her as a character who was so attached to her freedom that anything that compromised that made the hairs on the back of her neck stand up, and she needed to leave as quickly as possible.”

While enjoying her post-breakup happiness, Sarah takes up with an admirer, Jonathan (Mark Webber), and experiences that wonderfully awkward newness of a budding relationship. At the same time, Sarah’s sister, Beth (Community’s Alison Brie) is consumed with planning a wedding to her fiancé, Andrew (Freaks and Geeks’ Martin Starr). Says Caplan, “What we tried to do with the movie was juxtapose the excitement of something new and the mundane aspects of the long-term relationship. There are pros and cons to both—excitement or comfort.”
