Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Actor Wi­nona Ry­der (right) says she feels like a mother to her young Stranger Things co-stars. The 44-year-old star, who has no kids her­self, said she found it “strange” to quickly de­velop a strong maternal bond with her on-screen chil­dren Noah Sc­napp and Char­lie Heaton, re­ported Fe­male First. “Hon­estly, I felt like Noah and Char­lie were my kids. It was a bit alarm­ing — it hap­pened in an in­stant, al­most like when my niece and nephew were born,” she said, adding, “It was like for the first time in my life I un­der­stood how you would jump in front of a bus for this lit­tle baby that you don’t even know yet. I did feel Char­lie helped me a great deal with the emo­tion. He’s a tremen­dous actor.”

Ry­der also said that there is much more she can learn from the young ac­tors. “These kids are so in­cred­i­ble and spe­cial and tal­ented, and they all love doing what they do. The only thing I could say to them is that get­ting to do the work is the re­ward, that life is short and you have to en­joy what you do — and we re­ally, truly did,” she added. mer­i­can actor Zooey Deschanel (right), who worked with singer­ac­tor Justin Tim­ber­lake (above) in the 3D com­put­eran­i­mated mu­si­cal com­edy film Trolls, says she first met the singer-actor 10 years ago and he blew her away.

On a talk show, when asked if she had meet Tim­ber­lake be­fore, Deschanel said, “I had ac­tu­ally, we did a screen test to­gether like 10 years ago. I only knew his work as a singer at the time, and they were like, ‘Well Justin Tim­ber­lake’s test­ing’.”

Deschanel added, “I was read­ing with a bunch of dif­fer­ent ac­tors, and they were like, ‘Justin Tim­ber­lake’s com­ing’. Well I was like, ‘I don’t know what to ex­pect be­cause he’s a singer’. And I know he’s a great singer. And then he came in and he blew me away. He was such a good actor. And I was like, ‘Come on’.”
