Alfonso Cuarón On Gravity’s Sandra Bullock And George Clooney: “They Team Against Me”
submit to reddit

Director Alfonso Cuarón has helmed some amazing and popular films over the years -- Children of Men, Y Tu Mamá También and Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban -- and all signs indicate that his latest, the stranded-in-space epic Gravity, will be just as well-received.

Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, the stars of Gravity, didn't make Cuarón's job easy though. It turns out they weren't shy about teasing their boss. Their main plan of attack? Mimicry. 

Here's how Cuarón explained it:

GS: Sandra Bullock, George Clooney, trapped in space, you can only save one...
AC: I let them, you know, if they are the two of them together, the problem is they team against me. They impersonate my accent.

GS: They do?
AC: Yes, they do all the time [...] They play me like Cuban, like Tony Montana. They do a "Tony Montana thing."

Watch the full interview with Alfonso Cuarón on Friday, Oct. 4 at 7 pm.
