“I always found a way to work dancing to Whitney Houston into it. I would charge a lot of money for people in the neighborhood to come and see. I’d be like, ‘It’s for the Saturday night performance.’ And just because we were so bold, my parents’ friends would actually pay to come see these ridiculous Janet Jackson-inspired plays.”Maybe it was that business sense that eventually led her to double major in economics and studio art at Georgetown University after graduating from a performance arts high school in Florida.
Marling said she actually doesn’t know what prompted her to torture herself with statistics and economic proofs.
The 27-year-old actress and screenwriter emerged as a Sundance Film Festival breakout this year after starring in two popular low-budget films that she also co-wrote, Another Earth and Sound of My Voice.
Both of those movies were acquired by Fox Searchlight and will have theatrical releases; Another Earth on July 22 and Sound of My Voice next year.
More likely, it was because she knew no one who made a living out of making art and had no idea where to start.The fact that media coverage often juxtaposes her good looks with her intelligence doesn’t say as much about her, she pointed out, as it signals a need in American culture for more female voices and viewpoints. She wanted to be able to cast herself in roles that wouldn’t require her to play the typical parts offered to young actresses, the perfunctory girlfriend or a crime victim. The daughter of real-estate developers who moved a lot, following projects, said her nomadic lifestyle as a child influenced her choices as an adult.“We’re all drinking from this cultural milk in which there are not many stories of strong, powerful, sexy, entitled women because there are not yet that many female writer-directors, but that’s changing,” said Marling. She also was looking for control.“How terrifying to surrender your life to being chosen all the time,” Marling said. Writing so that I can act became a way of having not more control over my future but not having to wait for permission. Back then, theater was her only constant, and she grounded herself by writing and directing her own plays and casting her friends.“They were very silly and also very dance-heavy,” she said.She spent the rest of college collaborating with Batmanglij and Cahill on experimental films.The summer before her senior year, though, she took an internship at Goldman. “I started to feel like it was all a bit of a fraud, all these charts and regressions and models.” She turned down the subsequent job offer and took a year to travel to Cuba to shoot a documentary with Cahill.
