Interview: Family Weekend Press Conference With Kristin Chenoweth And Olesya Rulin

Posted by Perri Nemiroff On March - 26 - 2013 0 Comment

Family Weekend PosterPress conferences are informative, but not typically fun, per se. However, when you’ve got two entertainers front and center who are seemingly very passionate about the film they’re promoting, the excitement leads to a laugh-packed back-and-forth.

That film is “Family Weekend” and those entertainers are Kristin Chenoweth and Olesya Rulin. Rulin leads as Emily Smith-Dungy, a high school student with a passion for competitive jump roping. When her entire family misses an important competition, Emily decides enough is enough. She rallies her siblings, they kidnap their parents (Chenoweth and Matthew Modine), and refuse to let them go until they strike a proper balance between work and family.

With “Family Weekend” due in theaters on March 29th, Chenoweth and Rulin sat down for a session of rapid-fire questions. While we did get the goods on their connection to their characters, what it took for Rulin to appear to be a legitimate jump rope athlete, where they got their inspiration for the Smith-Dungy family dysfunction, and more, the bigger laughs came from poking fun at their personal lives and trying to figure out who made Rulin’s dress.

Check it all out for yourself in the video featuring the highlights from the event below.
