"Hunting" heroine Betty Gilpin's history of Hollywood


The thriller "Hunting" , which was withdrawn due to the shooting incident in August last year , was finally released in North America on March 13 this year. But the film seemed to be cursed. Just one week after its release, the new crown epidemic caused the theater to shut down. After getting a box office of $ 5.8 million, it hurriedly launched the on-demand platform.

The film has a very controversial plot and a violent setting similar to a B-level film. The audience has relatively high reputation. IMdb scored 6.4, and the number of people who scored 1 was similar to that of 10. . To the performance of the heroine Betty Gilpin , the audience's evaluation is relatively consistent: the handsome, little-talking Queen Faner, the elder sister, the five-star heroine.


Who is Betty Gilpin? She will be 34 years old this year. She has been in Hollywood for 10 years. The previous development is not tepid. From an external point of view, her condition is not bad, she is 1 meter 69 tall, and has a hot figure, a typical blonde beauty. Similar to Uma Thurman, Jessica Chastain, Bryce Dallas Howard; from an internal point of view, long-term stage drama training, her acting skills are also reliable, this time can be recognized, the role is suitable Is a big reason.

In "Hunting", she plays the retired special force Christo, who looks like a no-brainer. In fact, she combines beauty, wisdom, and courage. In the case of being trapped by a group of elites, she hangs to the end. ...


Last year, "Hunting" was stopped. The plot of the elite hunting civilians involved in the film is easily linked to frequent shootings. Betty Gilpin believes that the topic of the film is actually contrary to the imagination of encouraging violence. Over here.

In Betty Gilpin's view, the film is a satire on the current social and political phenomenon in the United States (the left elite and the right grassroots are each playing 50 big boards). She told the New York Times: "The current United States is divided. The two sides are becoming more and more difficult to communicate. In this movie, you can watch with your family who are arguing about politics, and then you laugh at him, he laughs at you, and you laugh at yourself again. "


Regarding the controversy of the film, Betty Gil flattened: "Of course we can make a movie that everyone does not argue about, but if you are always afraid to raise controversial issues in the movie, you will go astray. Where you see the same thing together, do n’t waste this opportunity of sincere communication. "

Many people may not know that "Hunting" is the first protagonist of the Hollywood studio that Betty Gilpin received. It took 10 years to get the opportunity. The result is still twists and turns. In an exclusive interview with the New York Times, she joked that if she encountered this kind of thing when she was 19, she would be mad at being sent to a psychiatric hospital, but now she tells herself "this world does not mean you have setbacks, there is good The fairy ran out to help you solve the problem, or your ex-boyfriend would automatically line up to apologize to you. "


It is said that Hollywood is a fiercely competitive place. For an actress who wants to succeed, how fierce is it? The number of active members of the American Actors Association exceeds 110,000, and countless beautiful girls from all over the world come to Los Angeles every year to try their luck.

Betty Gilpin's condition is considered to be a dragon and a phoenix, but from his debut in 2008 until 2017, the Netflix American drama "Beauty Wrestling League" did not have a representative of life. She was shortlisted for the best supporting actress in the Emmy Awards comedy category three times with this work, followed by many big screen works beckoning to her.


2019 was originally her pioneering year, four films to be released, "the mission of a dog 2" actress, Warner romantic comedy "Do not romantic" Supporting Actress, Fox comedy "Uber crisis" Supporting Actress, the ultimate big The heroine of the killer Universal thriller "Hunting"! As a result, "One Dog's Mission 2" frustrated at the box office, and the two comedies did not stir up the waves. It seems that "Hunting", which has the potential to explode, is withdrawn before it is released.

This is the reality of Hollywood. Even if you look beautiful, have a good figure, and make progress in acting fast, it is difficult to get ahead without good opportunities.

When asked about this age-old problem, Betty Gilpin told the New York Times: "The entertainment industry has a myth. As long as you continue to work hard, you can meet the Eden in the corner. As long as you stay young, slim and perfect, the next role is Will open the door to success for you. I think only if we think this is impossible, you can really feel the fun of the actor's job. "
