Madeline Brewer opened up to us about her upcoming role as the fun-loving Dawn in Hustlers, her personal experience working with the incredible Jennifer Lopez, and how switching off social media has made her feel like a whole new person
Playing the role of Dawn in Hustlers was…
A challenging role, in that it was a departure from anything else Ive done. I’ve done some very intense, very heavy work. I love it and it’s home. But this was such a gratifying opportunity to just try some new things out. Lorene also really encouraged me to have fun, find Dawns little nuances, and she gave me the safe space to explore this girl.
The three most memorable moments of shooting Hustlers were…
1) The costumes. Every fitting was like stepping inside the closet of who I wanted to be in 2007.
2) Working with Jennifer. I’ve known the name Jennifer Lopez my entire coherent life. She’s an icon. And to witness her talent and hard work firsthand was definitely one for the books.
3) I reunited with two of the women who worked in the hair department on Orange is the New Black that I hadn’t seen in maybe seven years. It was so incredible to see them again.
I would like to try my hand at…
Writing scripts. I’m an actor so I read scripts and audition nearly constantly. I’m writing some too, because why the hell not?!
Did you know that…
The Handmaid’s Tale’s was picked up for season four!
I would describe my style as being…
Very laid back, and if it requires a bra, it’s probably a no from me.
My co-star Jennifer Lopez was…
The most beautiful person I’ve ever seen up close!
