Spacek says new movies offer diverse fare

NEW YORK, Nov. 16 (UPI) -- U.S. actress Sissy Spacek says her two new U.S. movies, "Four Christmases" and "Lake City," offer viewers very different experiences.

The 58-year-old star of "Carrie" and "Coal Miner's Daughter" said while "City" allowed her to show the emotional depth of her acting talents, "Christmases" gave her a chance to engage in some carefree fun, the New York Post reported Sunday.

"The problem was trying to, you know, not have it all burst out on the first take, trying to pace yourself a bit," Spacek said regarding the filming of "City." The movie follows a mother whose son comes back home after apparent problems with drug dealers.

Spacek told the Post that performing with Troy Garity in "City" was very emotional, while acting alongside Reese Witherspoon and Vince Vaughn was pure entertainment.

"'Four Christmases' is just ridiculously … ridiculous. I play Vince Vaughn's mother and Robert Duvall plays his father. I said, how did he and I have such a tall son? Amazing gene pool. And Jon Voight and Mary Steenburgen play Reese (Witherspoon)'s parents. We're four highly dysfunctional characters," Spacek said.
