Mamie Gummer Interview

Mamie Gummer on working with mum Meryl Streep: “She had a much bigger trailer than I did, which was a problem”

Published: August 28, 2015


Daily Life: How did they get your hair to do that in the movie?

Mamie Gummer: It was a long process, actually. A lot of scrunching motions.

What was even in there, like mayonnaise?

So much shit. Various things. I think they put like mud in there, goops, oils.

Sounds like a nice morning routine.

Yeah. Usually my hair gets so damaged because they’re blow-drying it endlessly. This was not like that. It took a long time. It took like an hour in the hair chair to make it look that terrible.

It’s such a heartwarming movie.

I know. Jonathan Demme [the director], he’s a very optimistic soul. And it was an interesting pairing, him and Diablo [Cody], ’cause that’s not her general outlook.

Yeah, you get that in the movie – this kind of clash between Diablo’s ironic quips, and Demme’s really inclusive, warm vibes.

It’s highly dysfunctional. But then there’s still hope. I mean, it ends with everyone singing.

You’re working opposite your mum in this movie. But you’ve done it before, right? A very long time ago.

I don’t have any memory of having worked with her ’cause I was so little. I was just a baby. This was a little bewildering, I’d say. It was hard not to feel like I was in the way of the shot. Like, why am I in front of the camera? I should be over by craft services, playing with her makeup or messing up her trailer.

But you’re in the movie!

Yeah, I’m in the movie! Once I actually allowed myself to remember that, it was nice. Um, she had a much bigger trailer than I did, which was a problem.

I read Demme tried to set up some distance between yourself and your mum while on set, getting her to ignore you the whole time.

Yeah. The majority of our scenes were in this one house. There was a room that was like Julie’s room that was set-dressed, and I just hung out in there. I really sequestered myself in it, like a real teenager, keeping the door locked. I just lay in bed for the entire time and stewed.

That’s amazing. Did it bring back memories of dealing with your mum in real-life?

In real-life?

Yeah, I mean obviously Ricki’s a bigger mess than Meryl Streep! But, you know, in the sense that they’re both your “mother” and they’re both “creative types”.

Well, I mean I’m no stranger to having tantrums or like having yelling matches with my mum. It has happened, maybe not quite to Julie’s decibel. Just standard teenage stuff, like “You don’t understand me and you never will!”

I need to know how Meryl Streep reacts to something like that.

(laughs) Well, you know, I think she was pretty patient. She was usually like, “Fine! I’ll let you have that one.”
