Twenty years after Josie & The Pussycats, Tara Reid didn’t change things

It’s been 20 years since Tara Reid played Josie and the Pussycats’ sweet and spacey drummer Melody Valentine, and she still talks about her like her beloved friend. “She was one of the best of all the characters I’ve ever played, because she woke up every day and was able to play the happiest girl in the world,” Reed told Refinery29 on the phone. I told you. In 2001, the melody was mistaken for a stupid blonde. Now Reed knows she’s right to bet on her. Josie and the Pussycats, once a serious commercial failure, have since been reborn as a cult classic. What Roger Ebert once called “stupid as the Spice Girls” is now widely recognized as a breakthrough cultural phenomenon for the entire generation of young women. Josie McCoy (Rachael Leigh Cook, She’s All That Hot Off), Valerie Brown (Rosario Dawson), and Melanie weren’t the only punk rock prom queens. Women value friendship over love and proved to be superior on the path we chose. You don’t have to break each other on the way. When she experiences her own transformation, it’s a lesson maneuvering a reed. An underrated talent who once dominated the tabloid headlines as a girl next to American Pie and Van Wilder, she made an unexpected and unprecedented comeback as an action star in the giant Sharknado franchise. At the age of 45, she is now reinventing herself as a producer. Reed is no longer waiting for the right role to come. Instead, she makes the material herself. Her IMDb page is full of projects (21 in production at the time of this interview’s release), but she’s most excited about Reed’s production and starring White Cross. It is a mushroom of Masha who is a thriller of. Named Masha, whose birthday party is a very wrong mother when she and all her guests are taken medicine and forced to fight hallucinations to survive. There was a learning curve — “usually I play that role, set up, work, and leave,” she said. “I didn’t realize how much money it would cost to make a movie.” But Reed didn’t stop. After all, the industry has forgotten about her before, and she’s always bouncing back in new and unexpected ways. “I’m a survivor,” she said. “At the end of the day, when you love what you’re doing, you’ll always come back to it.” Earlier, Reed looks back on the legacy of Josie and Pussycats and: Refinery29: I have never auditioned for Josie and Pussycats. How was it cast as Melody Valentine? Tara Reid: “We have signed a three-photo contract with Universal. [Pictures].. The first two films were American Pie and American Pie 2, and the third was Josie and Pussycats. What did you like about the melody? “She has a very free spirit. She looked naive and some people called her a fool, but she never did. If you really watch a movie, she’s these I had a spiritual moment and a prediction. Her heart was so big — if the rose fell, she would feel like the rose was dead with her. And I was with my favorite girl We were together and we had a lot of fun together. It was like a sleeping camp. At first I had to learn a tough instrument. Rosario didn’t know how to play the bass I didn’t know how to play the drums. Rachel didn’t know how to play the guitar. They gave us about three months of lessons and finally we learned. “You Are you still playing? “No, I live in a skyscraper, so playing the drums here will probably kick you out of the building! It’s not the lightest sound, but you can play the bongo whenever you go out before the pandemic. I now know my beat! ”Santa Monica, California – March 29: Taralead Scotland at the Fairmont Miramar Hotel & Bungalow on March 29, 2021 in Santa Monica, California.

(Photo courtesy of Matt Winkelmeyer / Getty Images) What’s special about Josie and the Pussycats is the unusual early film starring three young women who haven’t played romantic relationships or competed for men. “I liked it. I don’t think movies need to compete for guys or always have an interest in love. Let’s be natural! Times have changed. We’re you It’s not the time when you need men, you have to get married and have children. Women can do whatever they want, although we have as much power as they do. Josie and the Pussycats was one of the first women’s empowerment films of the time, and no one knew it, if we didn’t know it at the time. And now, 20 years later, it became this cult movie. It was great to work with these great actresses. ”If you go back and read the original review, the young lady who saw it Given how important it was to the film, it’s pretty shocking to see how important critical critics of the film were. “It was before social media. It was ahead of its time. Puma said it was a new adidas, red was a new black, all these subliminal messages. Everyone understands what that means. It wasn’t. But today it makes perfect sense. It would be a big hit if it came out now. And that’s another way — it was terrible with box office revenue, but now everyone is about it. I would like to interview with us and ask what happened and what has changed. “It wasn’t mean to each other, it was girls to each other. We are the best in life. Spent time, and I think people see it. When people see the movie, they go, wow, I wish I had it. ” Do you have any memories of the shooting you are doing? “The very ridiculous thing is that we were wearing the smallest outfits and it was frozen – we were in Vancouver. Everything was custom made and very small! Get out! Every time we had to, we trembled and died. And every time we finished the scene, we rushed to the trailer and paired with three pairs of Ugg boots. I got it, Ahhhhhhhh. It was heaven. “I was hooked on the melody wardrobe. All those early daughters go to the top!” The melody wardrobe was great. Costume designer Lisa Evans was very cool. She asked, “What do you think the melody should be?” We were very involved. I wanted the melody to be a perfect rock star, a perfect cool, but she’s the only one. She doesn’t even know she’s doing it. It was one of the best things about playing a melody. All I had to do to play her was to be happy. I didn’t even have to look for happiness, I had it with my co-star. It was great. “Did you get the costume?” Some of them! I usually have 4 or 5 versions of the outfits in case something goes wrong, so I have some of them all. You have put this pivot into production and are developing numerous projects, including Masha’s Mushroom. Why did you make this change in your career? “While sitting in my house [quarantine], I went back and started reaching out to the people I worked with in the past. White Cross and I came out with a movie called Mummy’s Beloved and we were really connected, so we decided to make this movie called Masha’s Mushroom — I’m obviously Masha is. Then we started a company together and started to be friends. We were blocked, so we contacted people who wouldn’t normally be able to answer the phone. But everyone was at home and no one was busy. I have access to relationships with so many people. Currently, Masha mushrooms are one in five. It’s like another American pie or sharknado, but this is my baby. It’s a very cool movie, when you watch it you’re going to get it. There is no such thing. “Everyone was looking at my yearbook, but I was still growing up and changing into a woman.” Tara Reid What did you learn from that experience? “Usually I play that role, go to the set, work, and leave. I didn’t realize the difficulty as a producer and how much effort was put into it. How many years will it take to make, raise money and get a ration? It feels best to be on both sides of the fence. Even when negotiating with actors on various things, I want them to I know what they need, because that’s what I want and what I need. “The parts I’ve been doing for a long time. Instead of waiting, I thought: what you know, it’s time for me to make my parts. What I want to make, people will remind me back to the game Things. And it was me who created it all. After all, someone says, if you want something to happen, who has to do it? You. Very I’m happy. It makes you feel good, and it’s very important now. “Did the people in the industry realize that they still have the image they had when they started? “For a long time I felt that way, but not so much anymore. Imagine you saw a picture of your senior in a high school yearbook and then you’re looking at yourself now. Does it look the same? That’s the way I felt in the industry. Everyone was looking at my yearbook, but I was still growing up and changing into a woman, but you guys. They can’t see it until they can show a change in. Like everyone, it’s 20 years later. I’m 45 years old. I can’t even do the same thing at the time and I’m too tired. It’s never a mold. It wasn’t the cast situation. It was that I was turning pages. In Hollywood, it’s hard to turn pages without showing the next page. ”Speaking of typecasts, Instagram about loving Bridgerton. I saw it posted on, but would you like to take on the role of menstruation? “It’s one of the best shows ever. I’m crazy about the period. It’s going to be the project I want to do.” We’re now, especially in the aftermath of the Framing Britney Spears, tabloid coverage of early young women. I am doing this cultural calculation. Do you feel like it’s drawn unfairly? “I hated it, but time is the healer of everything. Hollywood is changing. Women have an unprecedented, time to recover, where we can control ourselves. Incredible It’s the female director who’s doing so much, and it’s the female actor who’s taking over. It’s our time. If anyone gets bullied, it’s me, not me anymore. “” In Hollywood, next It’s difficult to turn pages without showing them. ”Tara Reed What advice would you give to a young woman coming to Hollywood today? “Be patient, careful, and always inspiring. Love your craft, and if you love something else, then love something else and go that way. It’s the world It’s not the easiest job in the world. It’s almost impossible to be an actress who always works in Hollywood. ”As you get older, has it been difficult to move to different types of roles? “When you’re so young, you’re playing the role of high school or college. It’s not a top-notch woman. A top-notch woman is like Julia Roberts. Now I’m at that time. Awkward After going through the stages, it’s time to become the leading woman. [I am] I did it myself using my rules and territories and controlled my image and the press. I was innocent and too young to know what to do before. I didn’t understand. With age you learn a lot. “I won’t get anything back. If everything was so easy, like when I was on the cover of Rolling Stone, I wouldn’t be here on the phone with you. After all, I I learned a lot. I feel like my career really started for the first time. “This interview was edited for length and clarity. Like what you see?
