Liv Tyler Plays 'My Favorite Scene' with Movieline
Liv Tyler's latest film, The Ledge, features the actress as a woman mired in a love triangle with her fundamentalist Christian husband (played by Patrick Wilson) and the more secular-minded hunk next door (Charlie Hunnam) -- a scenario that ultimately plays out with the neighbor contemplating suicide on a building ledge high above Baton Rouge. There's a lot to dig into there -- which Movieline will do closer to The Ledge's July 8 theatrical release (it's currently available on VOD) -- but for now let's reflect elsewhere in the latest round of My Favorite Scene.
"If I'm going to free-associate right this second," Tyler said, "I would think of the opening of Jules and Jim. He's in the bed, and there's a beautiful girl and she flips her cigarette around and puts it in her mouth backwards and puffs like she's a choo-choo train. And the camera sort of dollies around, and she spins around. It's beautiful. I remember the first time I ever saw it, I paused it; I got so excited! I kind of had to watch it three or four times. It's just a very simple little visual moment, but I love it."
Good call. It goes like this (with a few other highlights from the film thrown in for good measure):
