Who says you can’t teach an old (Snapchat-filtered) dog new tricks? The legendary Sally Field and boyishly handsome Max Greenfield spent the afternoon on a Snapchat date of sorts, fielding fan questions about their quirky rom-com, Hello, My Name is Doris, and trying on new looks a la Snapchat’s latest facial filters, including Doris’ signature hair accessory.
In Hello, My Name is Doris, Sally Field plays a single New Yorker who falls in love with a handsome co-worker. The twist, if you want to call it one, is that Doris is in her 60s and cool-guy John is Max Greenfield, who is half her age. But there’s something pure and innocent about Doris’s crush — even if it borders on obsession — and with the help of her friend’s Internet-savvy teenaged granddaughter, she puts herself out there in the hopes of romance with the young Williamsburg hipster.
Sally Field plays an older woman in Hello, My Name is Doris, but the actress compares her character’s experiences to the awkward pangs of adolescence.
During a recent Sirius XM town hall hosted by PEOPLE and EW editorial director Jess Cagle, Field described the circumstances that lead to her eponymous character’s romantic pursuit of a younger man (Max Greenfield).
Sally Field is an ardent advocate of LGBT rights, even winning the Human Rights Campaign’s 2012 Ally for Equality Award. Her youngest son, Sam, presented her with the honor.
During an EW Radio town hall on SiriusXM this week, PEOPLE and EW editorial director Jess Cagle asked Field for any advice she would give to parents who expected their child was about to come out to them.
Hello, My Name Is Doris is a departure for both star Sally Field and director-writer Michael Showalter, who’s best known for raunchy, spoofy comedies like Wet Hot American Summer.
Helen Mirren choosing to enter Tuesday’s The Late Show by kissing host Stephen Colbert was so instantly legendary that multiple people have already tried to emulate it. J.J. Abrams made a joking reference to it when he was on that same night, while Sally Field went for full-on kiss Wednesday night.
“I figured if Helen did it, why can’t I?” Field asked.
Things got a little sexy between Sally Field and Max Greenfield when they popped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show to promote their dramedy Hello, My Name is Doris.
Host Ellen DeGeneres asked the costars to play her guessing game, Heads Up! The stars acted out prompts without speaking, while DeGeneres tried to guess what they were acting out. They fully committed, pantomiming a proposal, walking the dog, and — best of all — making out.
It’s a classic tale of boy meets girl. Or rather, older woman meets boy, ogles him in the kitchen at work, and even makes a fake Facebook account to get closer to him.
