Actress Susan Sarandon admires her A Bad Moms Christmas co-star Kathryn Hahn, and says she is “enormously talented and big-hearted”.
Sarandon and Hahn are playing mother-daughter in A Bad Moms Christmas, which was released in India on Friday.
Hahn really wanted Sarandon to play her on screen mother. Hahn sent her an email stating: “My ovaries really need you in this movie. I feel it”, read a statement.
Jon Lucas, the film’s co-director, said: “And Susan wrote an email back saying, ‘Who am I to argue with your ovaries?’ Which is the greatest acceptance letter of all time.”
Talking about the incident, Sarandon said: “Kathryn Hahn actually wrote me a letter that came with the offer and I’m a big fan of hers… I think she’s enormously talented, big-hearted and brave as hell.”
A Bad Moms Christmas is a sequel of Bad Moms, which had challenged the “perfect mother” stereotype in a fun way and was a huge success last year.
The new film, which also features Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, Sarandon and Hahn, is written and directed by Lucas and Scott Moore.
The holiday-themed sequel revolves around the life of three mothers who refuse to ruin their Christmas by doing all the chores, cooking, wrapping, decorating, shopping and looking after everybody.
