PROFILE EXPERIENCE HOLLYWOOD at the hob Not only is Stanley Tucci an internationally renowned film star, but he’s also the author of two cookbooks and a keen amateur chef. And then there’s his enthusiasm for BORA. Stanley who? When I recently told my friends about an interview with the American actor Stanley Tucci, there was a lot of shoulder shrugging. Who? A quick hint: the art director in The Devil Wears Prada! In the Hollywood blockbuster he plays the only haven of tranquillity in the hysterical chaos surrounding the editor of Runway, played by Meryl Streep. His performance shines alongside stars like Anne Hathaway and Emily Blunt (whose sister he is married to in real life). The following image springs to mind: a bald head and dark horn-rimmed glasses. Everyone nods now: “Oh him. Of course!” He’s one of those actors whose face you could recognise in your sleep. But whose name is not so quick to roll off the tongue. Perhaps that’s down to his transformation skills. He was once referred to as the ‘king of great small roles’. The Italian American has been ranked high up on the Hollywood cast list for decades: The Pelican Brief, Maid in Manhattan, The Hunger Games, Transformers all blockbusters. Tucci is a charismatic character actor who has won several Emmy Awards and Golden Globes. But that’s just by the by. In our interview we discuss something completely different: his passion for cooking. Previous talks with his New York PR agent are in the laid-back American style and he himself is charming and very precise. His enthusiasm for cooking comes through in every sentence. “Without a doubt, I get this passion from my family. I grew up with wonderful food. On Sundays we all used to sit around a big table with my grandmother to eat. Over the years, we’ve built up a collection of the recipes from back then. Today, I’m passing them on to my own children the next generation.” Although sometimes he’s away filming for several months, far from his wife and children. He currently has three films in the pipeline. When he’s back in Photo: Gerhard Kassner BORA MAGAZINE 67
