Exclusive: Michael Pena Talks Filming ‘American Hustle’: “It Was Nerve-Racking”



American Hustle received top honor on Saturday night during the 20th Annual SAG Awards, taking home the award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture.

It’s no secret that Amy Adams, Jennifer Lawrence, Christian Bale and Bradley Cooper are an incredibly talented cast; so that might be the reason why co-star Michael Pena called working with them … “Nerve-racking.”

“What I thought was going to be an easy job was nerve-racking, especially when you’re just doing a cameo,” Pena told HipHollywood while on the red carpet for the SAG Awards. “It was an exciting set. Everybody was on their game and really killing it. It kind of made it nerve-racking but it was really cool.”

Earlier this week, David O. Russell’s comedy also garnered 10 Academy Award nominations.


Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves



To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
