Sam Mendes

"Meine Frau wollte Leonardo DiCaprio"

In "Zeiten des Aufruhrs" inszeniert Sam Mendes einen Ehekrieg zwischen Kate Winslet und Leo DiCaprio. Privat ist er mit der Schauspielerin verheiratet. Auf Morgenpost Online spricht er über die Dreharbeiten und darüber, warum Winslet und DiCaprio dem Gespann Elizabeth Taylor und Richard Burton ebenbürtig sind.

Morgenpost Online: Mr. Mendes, wären Sie beleidigt, wenn man Ihren Film mit Mike Nichols' "Wer hat Angst vor Virginia Wolff?" vergliche?
