Emily Mortimer Dangerously Unqualified for Current Job

In the new film City Island, Andy Garcia plays a correctional officer who sneaks off to acting classes and studies with Emily Mortimer's character. When we caught up with Mortimer at the New York premiere of the movie last night, we wondered if she channeled any of her past acting-school experiences for her role. "I never went to acting school, so I had nothing to draw on whatsoever," she told us. "I’m a total charlatan. I shouldn’t be standing here at all. I don’t deserve to be working in this industry. I was never trained, and I never had an acting class in my whole life." See more in our Party Lines slideshow.
