A few weeks ago at the Toronto Film Festival, there was one disturbing scene in William Friedkin's Killer Joe that had everybody buzzing: the moment where Matthew McConaughey's psychotic killer beats up Gina Gershon and then forces her to fellate a fried chicken leg that he dangles in front of his crotch. Tough stuff, but also oddly campy, right? And last night when Vulture ran into Gershon at the Dior-hosted premiere party for My Week With Marilyn, we had to know exactly how that scene went down. "It's pretty gnarly, isn't it?" Gershon laughed. "I've never been in a movie where I had a hard time watching the scene ... I actually turned away, which I've never done. And in my movies, I've done some crazy stuff, but this is the craziest!"
If you're getting hungry just reading that, Gershon says it's by design. "I should be their spokesperson," she said. "I want to become their spokesperson. It'd be nice to get a gig from this movie. I should be someone's spokesperson, I think, right? It'd be a whole new job."
