Alexandra Barreto Interview
Rider Strong Is a Dad! Boy Meets World Star Welcomes Son With Alexandra Barreto
Jennifer Ortega: I love your film because it’s so clever and humorous, but it’s also tackling a very real conversation that we should be having. I read your director’s notes and I wonder if you could touch briefly on the origin of the idea for the film and about the Facebook post and where ‘Lady Hater’ came from.
Alexandra Barreto: For sure. It’s little complicated where the idea came from because it came from a couple of different places. But the original incarnation actually came about because I went to a spa with a good friend and I thought I was just going to get a couple of good massages, have a drink and have a good time. But when I got there I was slightly confused by everything going on around me and I felt like I didn’t fit in there. So I went home and I wrote this short and my friend who I went to the spa with opened up a meditation studio. We went in completely different directions. I actually filmed the movie in her meditation studio. So that was kind of perfect. So I wrote it and when Trump was elected and we all started looking at things and seeing how women were being treated. I then had to really reexamine what I had written. And then also just examine myself and why I had all those feelings. I wrote the Facebook post about being a ‘guy’s girl’ almost like an exercise for me to figure out what that meant.
As it was all coming about I realized saying you’re a ‘guy’s girl’ is not a great thing. It’s essentially saying I’m better than women because I’m like a guy. I then had to reflect on well why did I think that. Ultimately I realized that it wasn’t because I disliked women. It was because I was insecure about being a woman and the way society thinks you should act as a woman. I would then distance myself from women because I was like oh I don’t fit that mold and I don’t feel feminine and I don’t like some of the things that I’m supposed to like. I don’t feel like… just the most in a shallow sense like shopping. So yeah I just would distance myself and I realized well that’s ridiculous.
Jennifer: That’s why I love the takeaway from the film because we kind of have been brought into this idea of femininity and what it means and if you don’t like certain things or act a certain way then you’re automatically a tomboy, but really that’s bullshit. I love the line in the film about being a tomboy that’s not good at sports.
Alexandra: Oh yeah. Yeah, that was me. It’s like I call myself a tomboy that wasn’t athletic.
Jennifer: I’ve felt like that before, a tomboy that’s really klutzy and has no athletic capabilities.
Alexandra: I was in softball because I could hide out in the outfield.
Jennifer: Oh that was my key position in softball growing up. I have always left outfield far back looking at flies above my head.
Jennifer: In one of your statements you mentioned that you wanted to create a full-length film and you were going to submit to a directors lab, but you had to have a filmed sample. I love that your husband was like just make a short. Then you were like, but that’s only three weeks away. He’s like yeah so, just make it. I kind of love that because I really feel like that’s the way to get things done. Like you really just have to do it.
Alexandra: I thank him all the time for encouraging me to do it. He was totally right. I had the feature version written. And the short I mean it ended up like I really did write it in a day and then within a couple weeks we got it all together and shot it.
Jennifer: The cast is hilarious too.
Alexandra: Natalia Zea & Allyn Rachel are just amazing. And then the rest of the cast…I just didn’t want to get extras. I wanted actors. I wrote lines in the script, but at the same time I was like I don’t know if i’ll be able to get to everybody. It’s like 13 people. I didn’t know if they were all going to be able to be featured. I wanted to make sure that they were all actors. I got all of them. I was like oh wait you’re all great. I just wanted to make sure they all were featured and it worked out.
Jennifer: I kept thinking like I think a lot of these women must be doing comedy. I feel like some of them are doing stand up and I want to check them out somewhere because they were so funny.
Alexandra: Totally. Vivian Vivian Martinez is a stand up comic and there’s Naomi Murden who’s an improv actor who’s currently doing some musical improv in L.A.
Jennifer: That sounds amazing!
Alexandra: Yeah. They’re all they’re all doing their own thing so it’s great.
Jennifer: Natalie Zea I love. I have to tell you when I was college my guilty pleasure was the show ‘Passions’. So I’ve been a fan for a long time. I’ve interviewed her before and I’d never say this to her, but when I see her with hre husband (Travis Schuldt) I really want to say I’m so happy Gwen and Ethan (their characters from ‘Passions’) are still together.
Alexandra: I’m so proud of you for admitting that you love ‘Passions’.
Alexandra: Natalie is as a really good friend. We met in acting class. Many moons ago, bJennut that’s how we became friends.
Jennifer: I thought she was perfect in this.
