Wilson and Gyllenhaal have been the subjects of romance rumors since December when they were spotted with their arms around each other after a dinner date in NYC.Back in January, Wilson laughed off the reports she's dating her co-star.
Now, in addition to The play, says Wilson, is “less about gender politics. The only ultimate power you have as a human being is over your choice to live or die. If you try and think you have control over some of your life, essentially, that's the only real control you have, is whether you decide to exist.”Much like Wilson’s mood after a full day of press, screenings, Q&As, and meet-and-greets, the characters she has chosen to play have shades of gray: “I always want to find the light and shade of each one,” she says.
In fact, it’s precisely why she picks these sorts of roles—the psychopath, the grieving mother, the mistress, the lover.
You do start to see them be a bit more independent, but really that would be the brave choice, to see these women being single mothers, coping, helping each other.”But as sometimes happens when women are chatting, the conversation turns back to boys—back to “these awful men in their lives.” While she’s only read up until episode five of this season, she does have a bit of speculation about what’s next for Alison.
Season 2 ended with the character’s husband, Noah, taking the blame for Cole’s brother Scotty’s death, therefore exonerating both Alison and Helen—but also leaving them both as single mothers.“She's been in a place where she's just needed to find who she is, really,” says Wilson, “and redefine or find herself. The fact that [she and Cole] had another child together is something like fate; it suggests that perhaps, they were meant to be, and they needed that fission to come back stronger.
actress was joined at the event by fellow actresses Priyanka Chopra, Ruth Wilson, Jessica Lange, Selma Blair, Liz Goldwyn, and Marisa Tomei.
