Moviefone: For starters, Ana Lily, the Mona Lisa character sounds like a metaphor for something else, doesn’t it? What does it really represent and what were the themes you wanted to explore with this film?

Ana Lily Amirpour: Honestly, it’s me. My films are really personal even if they are genre films and they are fantastic. All the characters come from personal things. With Mona Lisa, it’s like feeling rejected and disconnected, but not in a sad way. You know what I mean?

She’s not the type to play the violin for me. She’s just different. She comes from another place, speaks another language, is strange and powerful and has therefore been misunderstood. I am definitely tied to this. But he’s just a hungry little monster who wants to go out and have fun. I also relate to this.

MF: Kate, who is Bonnie? How would you describe it in your own words?

Kate Hudson: Bonnie Bell is a survivor. She is really very comfortable in the life she has created for herself. She is shameless who she is. She loves her child, but doesn’t have much time to, as Bonnie would probably see, parent him or comfort him when the going gets tough. Life happens, and you have to survive.

She’s a tough mother. She probably doesn’t have many tools that other parents would have. She was not born with these tools. She is there to make money. She wants to make money. So when she sees an opportunity, she’ll take it. That’s who Bonnie is.

MF: Well, does she see anything else in Mona Lisa, or is she just a cash cow for Bonnie?

KH: It’s a good question. What do you think Ana Lily?

TO THE : She’s in a mess. While Kate talks about herself, I think about this type of woman, and she’s like a shark. Sharks never stop. They are always moving. They are hunters. She squeaks. You know what I mean?

KH: Yeah, I think you’re absolutely right. It’s great to hear you, your instincts, because that’s what intrigued me about Mona Lisa. I find his ability like magic. The idea that I think Bonnie just immediately thinks, “What could you do with that?” Let’s go!” It’s just who Bonnie is. Then every step of the way, no one is more present than Bonnie Bell.

TO THE : What would you do if you met a girl like that? Wouldn’t you be tempted to go to Neman Marcus and pick up a necklace? No just kidding. I am not promoting a flight. But do you see what I mean? It’s a pretty tasty power to have.
