Very soon one of the most beautiful woman in the world will have to deal with the worst of the gentlemen: The incredible Hulk
Liv thanks for this interview, it is true that you will be in a Marvel film? Yes is great, is something I didn't expected or that I expected I could do some day, I have always loved the comics action characters. Who wouldn't like to be the girl of Spiderman or Superman? I think finally I can be part of one of those comics, I already was the girl of the LOtr hero but this time will be an extraordinary film that is The incredible Hulk where I play Betty Ross. The partner of doctor Bruce Banner, who is a scientific and the key to take the Hulk from banner, to make him free of his anger, of his monster inside. Is a complicated romance and now this have made Betty to put his past behind and move on.
The film will be now about the search of Hulk, the most extrange creature. A creature with anger. Is a persecution trying to capt Bruce Banner, back to my character, to Bruce's life, just as explain the film director Louis Leterrier. My character is a mix of drama and action, I hope that the chemistry between me and Edward Norton will be terrific. He is an excellent actor and I think the character is excellent for him, only see him on Fight Club makes me really exited. We'll start to film in Toronto this summer so soon I will go there, and I will be on the cinemas next year in June; by now is the character I have and the work, that for now I have to work on and I am really exciting.
What kind of preparation will you do for the character? Well I will lose some weight, I will do some excersice too, and will make a change of my image to adapt to Betty Ross. I think I will also read lot of comics to feel the character, now I am becoming fan of Hulk and I am loving the force of Betty on the comics. She is the kind of strong woman that I want to play and I think will be something new for me.
What do you think of the Betty Ross played by Jennifer Conelly? I think is amazing, Jennifer Connelly is a wonderful actress and her character goes very well with the Hulk Ang Lee. Now I think the essence of this film will be different, still will be Hulk but from another perspective. The script is amazing is a fantastic aventure and you will like it a lot.
