And here is an interview by GMA News Online, with the four main cast members and the director of ‘Wonder Wheel’. I’ve cut out the pieces that aren’t Juno-related, but the whole interview will be available at the end of the post.

We talked to the award-winning filmmaker and his ‘Wonder Wheel’ cast at the Ritz Carlton in New York. Kate Winslet, Justin Timberlake, Jim Belushi and Juno Temple candidly shared their memorable experiences working with Allen among others.

[Woody Allen] On his directorial style for this movie, as Justin Timberlake said he was intimidated by him, Jim Belushi said Allen asked him to act “stupider,” and told Kate Winslet to be less “actress-y”“I hire these people who are very good. Jim, Kate, Justin, and Juno, they are all good actors. We are very careful before we hire. We look at many tapes. We speak to the people. It doesn’t take a great mind, a great casting director, to cast Kate Winslet or Justin Timberlake. So I hire them.

Then I try not to push too much of my own feeling and let them do what it is that they do that makes everybody like them all the time and makes them so exciting to people. I don’t want to be on top of them and say don’t do this and do it this way and this is what I was thinking of. It doesn’t matter what I was thinking of, because very often, they don’t do it the way I was thinking of. It comes out much better, because it’s more natural for them. It’s just better. So I give the stupidest directions, ‘faster,’ ‘louder,’ ‘better.’ But you don’t have to direct these people. You just have to hire them, not supervise them too much and get in their way.

Once in a while, you do have to tell them, can you speak a little faster? Or, can you walk across the room a little more languidly? But generally speaking, I keep to myself.”

[Kate Winslet] On working with Woody Allen and his process: “It’s really funny because working with Woody and working alongside Jim, Juno and Justin who were all terrified, somehow I felt a little bit like the inflight crew on a plane. You don’t panic when there’s bad turbulence or everybody will start to panic.

If they all see that I’m also terrified then it’ll have this trickle effect. Especially for Juno who I just completely adore and she actually reminded me of myself when I was a younger actress and the fear, the nerves and the feeling of being self-conscious in front of people you admire. I immediately took her by the hand and I said I am going to look after you.

Sometimes, he would just get up in the middle of a scene which we all think is going really rather well and he would shuffle in and he would say ‘no, we have to stop.  Oh, God, I’m just so bored. I want to go home. I am just dying watching you. I want to go home and have dinner.’

For Juno, this would have been a terrible thing for her to hear but I would actually find this funny. I think school of hard knocks. I’m an old lady now. I’ve been doing it for a long time. I can handle it. I don’t mind the honesty as long as someone’s not mean which he never ever is.

[Juno Temple] On working with Justin Timberlake and if she ever wished she had a kissing scene with him: “I know (laughs). Kate got lucky. (Laughs) I’ve not seen him perform as of yet. Hopefully, I will one day.

“Working with him was amazing. He’s such a giving actor and was also so open to running lines and talking scenes through, as was Kate and Jim. I thought we were all in this position of being quite nervous and really wanting to be on our A game with each scene, with each moment.

“I found Justin an incredibly giving actor to work with on camera. He’s just in the scene so profoundly with you, which I think is so amazing when you forget when you’re shooting something, which I also felt that with Kate too. They had this incredible energy about them. They were in high spirits always which was lovely.

“I had an amazing time working with these actors who are really brave, really giving people that I’m very thankful I got to work with. I’d work with each one of them again in a heartbeat.”
