Olivia Wilde has had years of experience as an actor, and has chosen a new path as a director, with her acclaimed debut movie Booksmart.
In an interview for Off Camera, she talks about how isolating a film set and filmmaking can be for actors.
"An actor is brought into a production after so much work has been done, right?
"Kept very separate from the rest of the artists and technicians...as if they're kind of like circus animals that have to be kept relaxed and quiet in a cage, well-fed and watered, and then release them right when you need them to do the trick, then put them back in the cage."
