Kate Winslet has admitted that the first thing she does when she gets a new movie role is panic. We don’t know why after hearing what screenwriter Aaron Sorkin had to say…
Sorkin explained to the WSJ, “When she said she wanted to play Hoffman, my first thought was, ‘Why is Kate Winslet playing a really mean joke on me?’ It was crucial that this character be able to stand toe-to-toe with Jobs, that she not be pushed off the screen. And since you couldn’t push Kate Winslet off the screen with a bulldozer, it was a real sight to see.”
Although the British actress lobbied hard to get a part in the new Steve Jobs biopic, she admitted that after getting the role of Joanna Hoffman, confidante and Marketing Chief of Jobs, she was nervous.
Kate revealed…“The first thing I do is panic.” Aaron Sorkin, who wrote the screenplay, admitted he initially thought Kate was joking when she said she wanted the role because it is a supporting part.
Sorkin admitted Winslet is perfect for the role because Joanna is a strong character who frequently stood up to Steve Jobs who is played by Michael Fassbender.
