Hawke critica sistema "Hollywood" 

Ethan Hawke has hit out at Hollywood studio system
13 Outubro. Ethan Hawke has hit out at the Hollywood studio system for rejecting an Andrew Niccol movie about the Israel-Palestine conflict.
Gattaca star Niccol signed Hawke and Ewan McGregor to star in the film - but it wasn't violent enough to pass studio approval.
Hawke says, "I think Andrew ought to be permanently funded. He has this beautiful futuristic movie that's a metaphor for the Israel-Palestine issue - it's an incredible script - and Ewan McGregor and I wanted to do it, and there was no way we could get the movie done.
"There's not enough violence in it, if you can believe that.
"It's the violence that gets the movie made."

Uma Thurman Still Suffers After Divorcing Ethan Hawke
Actress Uma Thurman has confessed during a TV show that she's still suffering after divorcing her husband, actor Ethan Hawke.
Thurman, invited Friday in Oprah's Show, told the host she had a rough period during the divorce period and that she blames herself for their break up, because if she had paid more attention to her husband than to her career, she would still be married now.
She confessed to Oprah Winfrey: "Half of America that gets married goes through what I've just been through and it's extremely hard and it's hard on the whole family.
We were having a difficult time… Our marriage failed. I should take full responsibility for the failure of my own marriage. I had a child and went back into an incredibly demanding job and I think that put a huge amount of pressure on our marriage."

An Interview with Ethan Hawke
We discuss Assault on Precinct 13, Before Sunset, and more with the star of Taking Lives.
March 17, 2004 - He was away for a little while, but now he's back. Ethan Hawke – the trainee from Training Day (and I might add, the explorer from Explorers) – stars with Angelina Jolie in Taking Lives, the second feature from director DJ Caruso (The Salton Sea). The movie opens this Friday.
Last week we spoke with Hawke – looking sharp in a three-piece suit – at a roundtable interview in New York. Subjects on the table: Taking Lives, fatherhood, Before Sunset and the soon-to-begin Assault on Precinct 13.

Q: I have to admit, though, that was a pretty open interview. Was that tough for you to do? I mean, for you to be that open?
HAWKE: It had been a tough year, so I felt like the only way to try to put it behind me was to actually try to address it. I thought that would be the most effective way to move forward. And it was never in my dreams to make my personal life anybody else's business. You know, it's not an ideal situation. Sometimes it happens and I feel like that's all anybody's thinking about when they're looking at me.

Q: You and Uma [Thurman] were such a public couple, and then it fell apart. And in a sense, part of the Hollywood dream is, you know...
HAWKE: Yeah, I felt like we were like a couple who came out and announced they're gay something. I felt like everybody had so much invested in our relationship...

Q: You'd been together for a long time...
HAWKE: We were together for seven years

Q: You said it was hard to be married to woman who is a movie star?
HAWKE: Yeah. I always felt that a marriage works best at a farm... where you're together and everybody has clear-cut roles; they have chores, 'you take care of this' and you know. But it's hard.

Q: Hard to be away for three or four months?
HAWKE: Our whole marriage was time negotiation. And you think there's a way, and you hear how people do this, and we rotate taking jobs – well that means that somebody's always away from town. And when we travel together, then that means one person is always like... two people always used to being the star of their own setting... it's very difficult. And a lot of it is difficult in a really positive way. It asks more of you and it asks you to grow.
Q: And you've done Before Sunset which is coming out this summer, and people loved it at the Berlin Film Festival.
HAWKE: Yes. That was awesome.

Q: What's different about this version of the film?
HAWKE: Hopefully that's why people will go see the movie. It's a continuation. It's nine years later, and it all takes place in real time. It's a ninety-minute excerpt of their life. I kind have a basic idea of it being that: when you're young, when they were in their twenties and they met, everything was about the future and hope and this kind of idea of romanticism. And now it's all reality, life is happening in the moment, so the whole movie is trying to be some kind of weird exercise in uber-naturalism.

Q: You sort of mock yourself in [Before Sunset], don't you?
HAWKE: Well, I think both [characters] have kind of shifted. In the first one he's kind of cynical, and in this one he's the more romantic one. Now she's more cynical.
