944 Hangs Out With the Ones to Watch in 2010
Starring as pop singing sensation Cora Corman in the Hugh Grant flick Music and Lyrics, Haley Bennett finally landed on Hollywood’s radar. Bennett has also been awarded roles in films such as the blockbuster hit Marley & Me, a short drama called Passage, and the title role in The Haunting of Molly Hartley. Bennett’s most recent release, suspense thriller The Hole, has been shown at the Toronto International Film Festival and the AFI Film Festival since its September release in Venice.
Catch Bennett in the upcoming sci-fi feature Kaboom, and alongside Nick Nolte and Carter Jenkins in Arcadia Lost.
What’s playing on your iPod right now?
Paul Simon’s “50 Ways to Leave Your Lover.”
You’d be surprised to know that …
I loathe exercising and pretty much refuse to do it unless there is a gun to my head (literally). I’d much rather enjoy a glass of wine and some cheese, bread or pizza with friends than go to the gym.
If you could travel anywhere in the world where would you go?
Paris … I miss Paris, even though I have yet to visit the city in this lifetime. I’m incredibly lucky to get to travel to incredible places in the world. I’d love to have the opportunity to live and work simultaneously in Paris. If I had the money, I would flee the country and buy a chateau.
What’s been your most challenging role to date?
Working with Shekhar [Kapur on Passage] was a very intimidating task. He is constantly pushing limits and exploring his actors’ deepest, darkest facets, which, as individuals, we may fear — but as performers, it has the ability to set you free. I found it to be exhilarating. Challenges make me feel alive. The day I arrived in Buenos Aires, I was given the musical number to prepare for the next morning … it was all French. I thought, “Merde sainte! I better go learn this …” I didn’t sleep a wink that evening, I was so anxious.
