Welcome to miss-winstead.com, your ultimate resource for actress/singer Mary Elizabeth Winstead. Known for her roles in Final Destination 3, Live Free or Die Hard, Scott Pilgrim vs the World, and 2012's indie 'Smashed'. She is also the lead singer of Got A Girl, a band she formed with Dan the Automator. Please enjoy your visit about this wonderfully talented actress.
Today marks two years since Mary wed her husband Riley in Austin, Texas! How quickly time flies. Anyway, this is just a quick post to say happy anniversary to them and here’s to them celebrating many more anniversaries together. You can see their wedding photos in the gallery.
As we know by now, Deltron 3030 is set to come out with a new album Deltron 3030: Event II later this fall and Mary has collaborated with the group on a couple of songs. In a new interview with Rolling Stone, the group, and Mary, discuss how it came together:
“I’m a huge, huge fan,” says actress Mary Elizabeth Winstead, who flew from a film premiere in Korea to join Deltron 3030 for its performance at Rock the Bells in San Bernardino earlier this month. After befriending Dan the Automator during filming for Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, Winstead was invited to the producer’s San Francisco studio in January to sing on a track called “Look Across the Sky.”
“I never really expected it to end up on the album,” she says. “It shows the kind of crossover appeal that it has, that it sparks something in me as someone who doesn’t even really listen to that kind of music, necessarily.”
Last night while Mary attended the Max Mara Cocktail Party Honoring The 2012 Women In Film Face event, Vanity Fair chatted with Mary about her appreciation for talented women and the night’s honoree, Chloë Moretz:
“I get so inspired by great actresses and great writers and great directors. I’m really passionate about more women getting behind the camera. Aside from Chloë, I love Michelle Williams and Carey Mulligan. I think Chloë is such a good role model for younger actresses.”
Not particularly news-worthy, but it is something to do with Mary, so thought I’d post it here. After being with the talent agency CAA (Creative Artists Agency), Mary has switched agencies to WME (William Morris Endeavor). According to Deadline, a day after Warren Zavala left CAA to go to WME, he has brought with him The Dark Knight Returns’ star Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Paul Dano, Big Bang Theory‘s Johnny Galecki, Amber Heard and Mary Elizabeth Winstead. Zavala, spent the last three years at CAA and the previous seven at Gersh agency.
Mary’s husband Riley has uploaded a teaser for his new short film, The Cub. This time around, Mary isn’t in the film (she starred in the awesome Magnificat and Casque short films), but instead serves as executive producer. Check out the really short teaser below.
Anyone in Austin, Texas tonight of all nights? Then you’re in luck if you’re a fellow Mary fan! She’ll be performing an original song with her friend Dan the Automator at 8pm during the Redbull show! If attending, the show takes place at 8th and Trinity. If you’re headed there tonight, don’t hesitate to take pictures and videos. I will gladly add the photos and videos to the site. And the icing on the cake is that the event tonight is FREE!
Good luck tonight, Mary! Very excited to finally hear some new music from her.
I got a couple of questions today where I was asked if I knew about Mary’s fan-mail address, and while Mary doesn’t have an official address, you can write to her here:
Mary Elizabeth Winstead
Baker Winokur Ryder Public Relations
9100 Wilshire Boulevard
Beverly Hills, CA 90212
Keep in mind, this is JUST a fanmail address and you will not be getting in touch with Mary directly so when writing your letters, please be respectful.
If you want to request an autograph, follow the guidelines. If you just want to mail a letter with the address above, and do not want anything back, then you can stop reading! If you live in USA send a properly stamped and self addressed envelope (minimum size 8.5″ x 4″) with your request letter and a photo. You can include a piece of cardboard to keep the photo from bending in shipping and also add “Do Not Bend” on the envelopes. Send your letter and wait. On average, there is going to be a 3+ month wait for a response. If you do not live in USA, add several International Reply Coupons.
Top 30 is about the young celebs who you loved in 2011. Who do you think was the most talented, charismatic, generous and all around awesome?
Well, the results were published today, and Mary came in at #13! Here’s what they wrote:
In 2011, Mary Elizabeth proved that she’s still got what it takes to take the scream queen crown home when she starred in The Thing. With plenty more films up her sleeve– which may or not included a horror flick, we’re looking forward to seeing more of her on screen. Not bad for a former soapie star right?
What’s Next: Upcoming projects for Mary Elizabeth include Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, A Gilmpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan III and Smashed.
Way to go, Mary!! And thanks to everyone who voted!
Aah, cannot believe how quickly 2011 came and went and now we’re in 2012! This is going to be one busy and amazing year for Mary with the several films she has coming out. Smashed, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Glimpse Inside the Mind of Charles Swan and hopefully they’ll get around to premiering Magnificat this year at a festival. Can’t wait to see them all.
Also, thanks for all the love and support you guys give us! It’s appreciated.
