Heather Graham has taken on a different kind of role from her typically bubbly onscreen persona.
You play a woman who finds out that her dead boyfriend was leading a double-life. Mary seems really unmoored and unmotivated in the movie, but you’ve been working as an actor since you were a teenager. It’s weird because I am really ambitious, but there is a side of me -- opposites attract. I guess there’s a part of me that finds this opposite person appealing, who’s kind of giving up in the moment, just sort of having no hope. It’s kind of a female perspective on sex and dating and also sexism in the workplace. I mean, I’m really excited about the idea of a female president. I also just think she seems experienced and smarter, but I think it would be cool if a little girl could grow up and see that they could one day be president.

I like how she felt like a loser and felt so unmotivated and unexcited and jaded and in the story. It was really strange how nonchalant she was about her boyfriend dying and how she made comments about how inconvenient it was to be single during the holiday season. I guess as a woman I was brought up with certain ideas about sex through religion: “You’re going to go to hell if you have sex out of marriage.” So even if you don’t believe that intellectually, how does that affect you in your life when you go into dating and how does that affect you as a person? In politics, what I want to see more represented is a female point of view. I do think a lot of stuff is written by men and it’s different -- they’re kind of male fantasies about those characters so it’s fun to do something that I felt like was from a female point of view and how women feel about their own sexuality. It’s called “Wetlands.” I did another movie with Robert Patrick called “The Last Rampage.” I got to wear a wig and glasses and look pretty unrecognizable -- that was fun.
I do feel like she lets that go and lets herself get inspired and lets herself fall in love with someone new. I guess I just thought that she had a dark sense of humor and I guess I thought it was funny because I felt like she’s just one of those people who is off the beaten track, sort of, having odd quirky reactions to things and I like how weird she was, I guess. It’s empowering to women to just sort of find a way to feel really good about your sexuality when society gives you messages to the contrary. You’ve talked before about how as a feminist, you’re still happy to play “sexy” roles. But it’s fun to play out-there characters and someone outside of the norm, like someone who’s got interesting and dark story lines. He’s such a good director and I think recently, just writing and directing my own movies is super-inspiring.
