Rosemarie Dewitt Interview
Rosemarie DeWitt: The Hollywood Interview
After many years paying her dues in theatrical productions big and small, and in supporting roles on television and film, Rosemarie DeWitt gained major plaudits for her turn as Don Draper’s Greenwich Village lover in AMC’s hit Mad Men. As Midge, a beatnik who was most likely born with a silver spoon in her mouth, De Witt brought both cagey sexiness and striking vulnerability to the table, making her a stand-out in a series full of fellow travelers.
Born in New York and raised in New Jersey, Rosemarie DeWitt attended Hofstra University and studied at New York’s Actors Center. She is also the granddaughter of legendary heavyweight boxing champ James Braddock, whose story was brought to the screen in Ron Howard’s Cinderella Man, in which Rosemarie appeared as one of the Braddock’s neighbors.
DeWitt now finds herself living a Cinderella story of her own, having just nabbed an Independent Spirit nomination for Best Supporting Actress in Jonathan Demme’s arthouse hit Rachel Getting Married, playing the eponymous character, who must deal with her dysfunctional and self-destructive sister (Anne Hathaway)’s return from rehab to attend her nuptials at the family homestead.
Rosemarie DeWitt sat down with us recently for a chat. Here’s what transpired:
Congrats on your nomination.
Rosemarie DeWitt: Thanks! I was really excited that the film got lots of nominations, that made it extra sweet. We were working on making it really honest, and getting out of our own way.

In many ways, you had the toughest role because you’re constantly reacting to everything that others are doing so it would have been easy for your character to be less three-dimensional than you made her.
But being surrounded by those actors really made it easy for me. You’re only as good as the people around you, and we had an amazing cast, so I didn’t really have a choice but to do what I did. (laughs) It was tough in the sense that Rachel is in a constant state of stress and anxiety about what’s happening and I won’t lie: I got a little drunk at the wrap party, and felt a tremendous sense of release when I could let her go, and kept saying to Jonathan (Demme) ‘I’m not Rachel! I’m not Rachel!’ (laughs) And I did this little dance to sort of shower it all off.

How long was the shoot?
Six or seven weeks, not that long to make a movie, but a long time to be in that mindset constantly. Jonathan was very relaxed on the set. We’d shoot twelve pages and be done by two in the afternoon. He knew exactly what he wanted, which made it a lot easier.
The film is an interesting litmus test. The friend I saw it with completely empathized with Anne Hathaway, whereas I was with you and Debra Winger.
Isn’t that interesting? It captures such a classic family dynamic that we’ve all experienced that it only takes about five minutes before you just plug in and figure out who you are in the story. And you can see how easy it would be to become Debra’s character. (Screenwriter) Jenny Lumet said something really cool in a Q & A recently after a screening. Someone asked her how she got the idea for the movie.
She said “I just had this image of two women looking at themselves in a mirror. One was in a wedding dress, and the other comes in and creates the moment, and at the same time, shatters it.” It was interesting to see how one character, one person, could have that much power over a family, but it happens, more often than not, I think
