‘Dallas Buyers Club’ Producers Fighting Red Carpet Fatigue

'I don't know how actors do it'

Sleep — or the lack of it — was a major topic on the red carpet Sunday at the Producers Guild Awards at the Beverly Hilton, representing the third such show in four days and fourth in eight.

“I don’t how actors do it, particularly in answering the same questions again and again,” admitted Robbie Brenner (above right, “Dallas Buyers Club”). “I’m exhausted but I’m also incredibly excited.”

Producing partner Rachel Winter (above left) chimed in, “You better love movies if you’re going to do this.”

Emma Koskoff (“The Wolf of Wall Street”) admitted that she was so tired that she had not written an acceptance speech. “I have not had time,” she allowed. “I’ll just do what producers do when confronted with the unexpected and make do as best I can.”

Chuck Roven (“American Hustle”) said he never tires of the red carpet, but admitted that he was facing a challenging day.

“I’ve got to catch a 6 a.m. flight to Vancouver for the first day of ‘Warcraft,'” he noted. “I always get up at 4 a.m. so it’s not that big a deal. That’s when I get my best thinking done, when it’s really quiet.”

12 Years a Slave” director Steve McQueen said filmmaking works best when those involved are deeply involved, adding, “You absolutely have to be passionate.”
