Back to One

A podcast about acting -- just the work. by Peter Rinaldi

Back to One, Episode 25: Private Life‘s Kathryn Hahn

Kathryn Hahn has joked about her plethora of “best friend or randy crazy lady” roles in comedies like How To Lose A Guy In Ten Days, Anchorman and Step Brothers. But recent projects by Jill Soloway (Afternoon Delight and I Love Dick) and Tamara Jenkins (the new Netflix film Private Life) have cast Hahn in the lead role, and suddenly we have an exciting leading lady who’s much more than a scene-stealer extraordinaire. She lets us in on a fascinating process she has for getting into the “I” of the character, talks about the road that lead to Private Life with co-stars Paul Giamatti and Kayli Carter, and cites the Alan Watts quote, “You’re under no obligation to be the person you were five minutes ago.”
