Frankly, They Don't Give a Damn: Kristen Wiig Steals the Show in Star-Packed Gone with the Wind Impressions Video
Everyone from Amy Schumer to Bradley Cooper and Eddie Redmayne take a stab at some of the movie's most iconic lines
A group of some of film’s biggest stars are channeling Hollywood’s golden age in a new, gender-swapping video that recalls one of cinema’s most iconic exchanges.
In a piece for W‘s new “Casting Call” series, the 29 actors and actresses featured in the magazine’s Best Performances issue perform lines from an iconic scene between Clark Gable and Vivian Leigh in Gone with the Wind.
While everyone from Brie Larson and Cate Blanchett to Bradley Cooper and Amy Schumer participate in the gender-reversed dialogue, only Kristen Wiig takes a comedic route with her line – and to hilarious results.
“I’m gonna read this where I’m doing the line and then I realize I forgot something,” Wiig explains before delivering her part. “Frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn.”
The second go-around, Wiig opts to read the same line as if she is “talking and then I see a really cute boy.”
The men in the clip complete the scene with Leigh’s half of the line: “If you go, Where will I go and what should I go.”
The video, directed by Lynn Hirschberg, is the first in a series from W.
