Woodstock resident’s "Ugly Truth" hits theaters today

“The Ugly Truth” which was co-written by Woodstock resident Nicole Eastman, hits theaters today.

The Woodstock Film Festival asked her to comment on her experience with the film:

“When I wrote THE UGLY TRUTH, I gave myself the challenge of creating a romantic comedy — traditionally a female genre — that would appeal to both sexes. Initially, I was daunted by the prospect of creating not just a convincing male character, but a male chauvinist pig, who could somehow win the hearts of female audiences. Surprisingly, after the initial trepidation, I had more fun writing the character of Mike Chadway than any other character I had created in the past.

“I hoped the male character would be edgy, obscene…and, most important, totally realistic. I knew I achieved my objective when people, upon first reading the script, refused to believe a woman wrote it. (Hopefully they were convinced after meeting me.) I wrote many drafts of THE UGLY TRUTH and have seen the project change hands multiple times in recent years. However, I am happy to report that the film is as funny and charming (and raunchy!) as I hoped it would be.

“I never imagined, when I was brainstorming an idea for my very first job — the first assignment in a two-picture deal I had at Warners — that someday this would be a major motion picture with this kind of manic buzz surrounding it. The stars, Gerard Butler and Katherine Heigl, were brilliantly cast and bring a genuine chemistry to all of their scenes together. I am thrilled with the final result and I hope everyone will come out to see it.”
