‘Breaking Upwards’ Premiere Presented by IFC Films

IFC Film Center. April 1, 2010. By Amanda Friedman

Who would you want to play you in a movie based on your relationships? “Meryl Streep, because she’s the best and who wouldn’t want the best. Who am I going to say, Miley Cyrus? How about Miley Cyrus in Julie: The Musical. Oh my God.” —Julie White

Zachary Quinto

This film is about the ups and downs of your relationship with Daryl Wein. If he wanted to have one night with Angelina Jolie, would you let him? “Sure. Yeah, I’ll give him that pass for sure. And Kim Kardashian. He can have both of them, as long as I have Ryan Gosling. We have a trade-off.” —Zoe Lister-Jones

Peter Sarsgaard

Mamie Gummer

How would you react if your significant other wanted to make a film about your relationship? “Well it would be, ‘If I’m being cast in it, we can do it. If you’re casting somebody else, fuck you.’” —Andrea Martin

Zoe Kravitz

Chris Parnell

Was it strange when you directed your girlfriend, Zoe Lister-Jones, in love scenes with other men for the film? “Actually it wasn’t, and I don’t know why. I think I was so stressed out on the set, making sure everything was going smoothly, that I wasn’t connecting to the emotion of it.” —Daryl Wein, Director

Nadia Dajani

Would you want to be in a film based on your relationship with your wife? “No. I would say, ‘Absolutely not, you’ll have to cast someone else as me.’ But if she was playing herself, I know it would be a terrible movie because she’s a terrible actress.” —Pablo Schreiber

Jeff Nelson

Do you like dressing celebrities for red-carpet events? “I think red-carpet dressing is so mundane. And now, having had my own collection, I’m competing with corporations and it sucks. And it’s like, ‘No, I want you because I like you and respect your work to wear my clothes, not because you gave me $10,000 to do so.’” —Daniel Vosovic

Would you ever star in a movie about your relationships? “I’d probably be fine with it. I mean, I’m an actor, so I’m slightly a whore with these aspects of my life. Obviously not directly, but loosely.” —Heather Burns
