The Betty Interview: Tilda Swinton

The Academy Award winner chats with us about her latest film “I Am Love.”

Tilda Swinton

Tilda Swinton’s latest film is a high cal love fest. In I Am Love (in theaters now), she plays a rich wife in love with the handsome chef. It follows that the set was brimming with every delicious food possible. “It’s a film about rich people, but it was a very poor film,” Swinton says with a laugh. “I know actors complain about food scenes because they have to eat all day. On this set, we were hungry. When food was eaten, everyone was smacking their lips! Our food was created by a great chef who has two award winning restaurants in Milan,” she marvels. “It wasn’t that glazed fake film food! It was delicious.”

It took 11 years for the producer and star of the new indie sensation I Am Love to find her happy movie ending. “A lot of artists who work in a spirit of independent film often find that a decade goes by while you’re growing your ‘seed,’” says the Oscar winning actress who collaborated with Italian filmmaker Luca Guadagnino to bring her lovefest to the big screen. The film is set in Milan and revolves around the wealthy Recchi family, which is in an upheaval when Eduardo Sr., the family patriarch, declares he’s retiring and will name a successor to run his mega company. Swinton is the wife of one of the sons. A Russian immigrant, she has worked hard to fit in with a rich lifestyle, but slips when she falls in love with a cook and begins a passionate affair that changes everyone.

    I’ve seen her look much better. She was in a movie with George Clooney (not Up in the Air,some other corporate thing). She looked like Jodie Foster.
