Kathryn Newton Shares Paul Rudd’s Advice for Her
Newton told Us Weekly that Rudd gave her “good advice” when she wasn’t sure what to do about a couple of projects she had been offered. As she explained, “I like everything. I’ll say yes to anything.”
“He said, ‘If there’s no one that you think could do this part better than you, if you’re the only one that can play this role, then you should do it’,” Newton recalled. “‘That way, you’re elevating it. If you can bring something to the role, then you should do it. But if you can’t and, like, someone else could do it better, then just don’t do it.’”
Newton said Rudd’s advice “really helped me,” adding, “I’d love to only do movies that I feel like only I could do because I’m the only one in the world that could play this part. And that’s how I felt about Cassie Lang.”
