Hollywood Stars Talk about ’80 for Brady’ Movie

The new, upcoming movie 80 for Brady is based on a group of friends who bonded over their love of Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. The new film features a who’s who of leading Hollywood actresses. 

Sally Field, Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin and Rita Moreno all star in the new movie. They all recently sat down to talk about their film and friendship. Around the 3:30-minute mark in the clip, the reporter sits down to talk with the four legendary actresses about their new film. 

While Sally admits that being with Rita, Lily and Jane while filming the movie was fun, making the movie was hard work.

“But in reality, it was hard work. I mean we, there was a lot of hard work.” Sally said. 

Jane mentioned that despite being a seasoned veteran in the film industry, making a movie has never been something she has been able to phone in.

“I don’t know about all of you but it never, to me, feels like, ‘oh, oh this is easy. You know, we could just show up,” Jane said. “It is never ever, ever easy. And not once in my whole life has it felt like that.”

During the interview, the actresses also discussed the thing that bonds all the women in the film together: friendship. 

However, much like everything else worth having in life, friendship takes work, even for big-name Hollywood actresses.

“What you have to do is, you have to be intentional,” Jane said. Like, I never used to be intentional. I would meet Sally Field, for example, but not pursue but I did pursue you.”

During the interview, Rita made a surprising personal revelation about her past and her number of friendships.

“I don’t have many friends. I don’t have many friends and I don’t have many friends in show business either, don’t trust them,” Rita said. I’ve been betrayed so many times by them and by my stupid insistence on believing in people who were really not very nice to me.” 

Following Rita’s statement, all three of the other women spoke up, vowing to help ease that pain in Rita’s life.

“I’m really sorry, Rita,” Lily said.

“We’re gonna try to do something about that,” Jane said.

“We’re gonna make up for that,” Sally said.

Jane added: “We’re gonna prove to you that there are three women here that you can trust.”

Sally mentioned that, at times, Hollywood seems to neglect older women audiences when it comes to producing films.

“Finding stories about older women, older women are really interesting,” she said. “And they’re a huge audience for, say, things you hadn’t thought of, sports.”
