In Mr. Church, Charlotte (Natalie Coughlin plays the younger version, Robertson plays Charlotte from teen years on) would rather eat Apple Jacks than scarf down Mr. Church’s (Eddie Murphy) cooking. The scent that comes out of the kitchen are hard to resist, and eventually Charlotte caves in to Mr. Church’s culinary concoctions. During my interview with Robertson, I asked her to name her favorite comfort food. Check out her response below.
“I do love cereal, actually. You know what I got recently that I think is going to be my new comfort food? Frosted Flakes came out with something pretty cool. There are now Frosted Flakes w/ Marshmallows inside so it’s like Lucky Charms and Frosted Flakes combined. And I’ve been doing that for the last couple of nights. It’s been pretty stellar. I’m not going to lie.”
***I also asked Robertson if her priorities, as far as acting goes, has changed over the years:
“Priorities do change. Thank God. It’s good for life. Movie are awesome but they are not everything. Priorities (have) got to change. I’m 26, you know. I mean, it’s like we’ve got to make good movies but let’s take care of the dogs, too. Balance is key – that’s changed.”
Directed by Bruce Beresford (Breaker Morant, Driving Miss Daisy), Mr. Church centers on the titular character (Eddie Murphy), a private yet loving man who forms an inextricable bond with a single mother (Natascha McElhone) and her strong-willed daughter (Britt Robertson). The movie, penned by Susan McMartin, is inspired by a relationship from McMartin’s own life.
Do you love Frosted Flakes or Apple Jacks? What’s your favorite cereal. More importantly, is balance truly key or are you more of a Koyaanisqatsi type? Feel free to comment below!
Mr. Church, co-starring Natascha McElhone (Californication) and Christian Madsen (King Jack), is now playing in select theaters. Check out my review of the film on this week’s episode of CinemAddicts.
