Oh, joy. Paz de la Huerta has another interview and photo shoot. I know this is going to shock the world, but Paz took off her clothes for the photo shoot. She also cupped her dirty biscuit and played with her boobs (go here to see the full NSFW-ish shoot). So… pretty much a normal day for Paz at a photo shoot. Here’s the shocking part: Paz thinks she’s a world-class artist. She tells Flaunt, “I consider myself one of the rare artists that are left—especially of the young actors. It’s unbelievable what some people consider great now.” She’s being honest too – she thinks she’s an artist because of her acting, not because of the “performance art” of her life. Here’s more:
On her new movie, Nurse 3-D: De la Huerta plays a dedicated nurse who spends her nights exacting revenge on abusive, philandering men. “She’s been scarred by many traumatic events in her past and never healed from them,” de la Huerta explains, “and so, things make her act out, and she reacts in a gruesome way towards men who are scumbags.”
She got the part by terrifying producers: And how does one land the role of a murderous nurse? You sit down and tell them you’ve got the hunger. “I met with the head of Lionsgate,” recalls de la Huerta, in her husky accent. “They said they couldn’t find the right girl for this part. What can I say—I’ve always been intrigued by serial killers. I’ve been working very closely on the script… and with the director to make it as realistic as possible. I want the audience to have an empathy and sympathy for her. She’s not a bad person; she definitely doesn’t think what she does is bad.”
On the media: “It’s just ignorance,” de la Huerta bemoans. “I feel sorry for people these days. The media really feeds off of sensationalism. I work incredibly hard. I’ve studied acting since I was 15. I consider myself one of the rare artists that are left—especially of the young actors. It’s unbelievable what some people consider great now.”
Acting: “I don’t really give a f–k,” she spits. “Actors all look the f–king same these days. It’s so boring.”
Paz the director: She will soon debut three short films that take three distinct views at damaged women—women scrambling to be understood—called The Memento Mori Project. “Whatever I do,” de la Huerta intones about her shift to the camera’s stern, “I want to evoke empathy in the audience. I’m very extreme, and I choose to focus on the darker side of life. It’s essential to me, because there are a lot of people out there that are suffering, and what I hope is to have somebody feel not alone through my work. I try to take away the black-and-white of life. There’s a lot of gray. So many people these days are closed off. I just want to open their hearts.”
She’s not even an actress: “You know,” she says, finally, “I don’t even consider myself an actress. I consider myself a channel. I kind of live through every character I play.”
Paz is so full of it. The only quote that I agree with is “Actors all look the f–king same these days. It’s so boring.” I’m glad there is a Paz de la Huerta just for that very reason – it’s good to have variety. It’s good to have an “actress” who is a completely different kind of hot mess than the usual hot-mess starlets we’re used to seeing. She’s right not to “even consider herself an actress” – she IS a “channel”. A channel to crazy.
