Sally Field wowed audiences at SXSW with her star turn in director Michael Showalter's delightful "Hello My Name is Doris," playing an earnest wallflower who becomes the toast of Brooklyn hipster culture. It's a spritely comical role, and while Field of course got her start in more comedic fare, lately she's been leaning more toward the dramatic side. But, Field is quick to point out, that's not at all voluntary.
"How many times to I get offered comedic scripts? It isn't even that. How many times do I get offered anything worth considering, be it comedic or serious or anything? Welcome to the world," Field tells Metro.
