Terrified of dating
As we talk, her phone goes off, then her Skype, and there are knocks at the door which a couple of publicists, who are listening in from the bathroom, pop out to answer. She was in her childhood home in Inverness, when her LA agents demanded that she submit an audition for the film within 24 hours. And when filming was over, she thought, “Why not stay?
So Gillan set up a camera in her bedroom and called her father, John, a care home manager. Move to LA, give it a go.” It sounds like a big step, but ever since Gillan was a girl, she’s been making intrepid moves in the service of her ambition.
That’s interesting because habitual fibbers at that website published an article on October 21 that alleged while he was still married to Jennifer Aniston.
It then has a seemingly made-up “insider” quoted as saying Jolie “can’t handle seeing him with another woman” because she gets “very jealous.” The same concocted “source” adds that Jolie is going to keep “an eye on him.” Why should the actress care?
She looks in fine fettle – her fiery hair in a pixie crop, still growing back from the time she had to shave it all off to play a cyborg super-villain in Guardians of the Galaxy.
In any event, Gossip Cop fact-checked the outlet’s new story about Jolie being “terrified” that Pitt has begun “dating again,” and we’re assured by a source close to the actress that it’s fake news.
Our impeccable insider reveals Jolie has “other concerns” in her life, and she’s “not focused” on her estranged husband’s “dating” life.
For Gillan, of course, there was no such conundrum. The music is so loud, they turn the lights off, and then they shout positive things at you while you’re doing it. So she tries to rebrand herself, with the help of a marketing expert played by John Cho (Harold, from the Harold & Kumar films). “My character’s this real Kardashian-type girl,” she says.
“It kind of kills it when you see the ghosts having lunch and stuff,” she says. “I was afraid to be alone in the dark after The Ring. Things we can’t perceive because our brains aren’t developed enough.” Not all brains are alike though. Someone’s looking out for her.” You might say someone was looking out for Gillan too, given how far she’s come, so quickly. Gillan is very sensible and hard working and avoids the temptations of Los Angeles. “So I went to Soul Cycle [a modish spinning class] to just listen to their voices, because it’s a really specific way of talking. ” Selfie was another deft piece of casting, because Gillan knows a bit about rebranding herself – she did it as a child in Inverness.
At 16, she left Inverness for Edinburgh, determined to be an actress.
