05.08.2015 Mamie Gummer: It was good to rage at Meryl

Meryl Streep's daughter Mamie Gummer insists they had no problem working together on new movie Ricki and the Flash.

Mamie Gummer found shouting insults at her mother Meryl Streep to be like primal scream therapy.
The real life mother and daughter star alongside each other in Ricki and the Flash. They play parent and child on-screen too and for Mamie it was nice to channel a totally different dynamic compared to their real relationship.
"It was really fun to be allowed to rage," she told the New York Daily News. "It feels good, like some kind of primal scream therapy."

The 32-year-old spends much of the film in pyjamas hurling insults at her mother Ricki, who has always put music before her family. However Mamie insists that her ability to yell at Meryl doesn't come from experience, as the multiple Oscar-winner has always managed to strike the right balance between her successful acting career and her family.

"Actually, working together was really and truly fine. It's more the anticipation of being asked questions that probe into and around that," she said. "My mum always has had a work life and a home life, and not a lot of carryover, which is nice, to keep those spaces separate and sacred in their own way."

Mamie is the second eldest child of Meryl, 66, and her husband Don Gummer. The couple have four children together, and Mamie knows it will always be a challenge to step out of her mum's shadow as an actress in her own right.

"I really have come to accept it. It's like, screw it, I'm going to be asked these questions about my mum, regardless, and have been time and time again and again, and I understand that," she added. "And I think us working together is just acknowledging the elephant."

The pair are extremely close, so for Mamie to get into the mindset of her character Julie, she had to distance herself from her mother.

"It was a lot of clenched fists and teeth, and I isolated myself," she recalled. "When we weren't working, I didn't sit around and gab and hang so much. I would go back to my room and fume."
