Stanley Tucci : “You Always Blame Yourself”
Stanley Tucci, an actor that famous as Nigel a flamboyant art director on The Devil Wears Prada, shares his deepest lost feeling since his wife, Kate Tucci died last year to cancer in his interview with NPR.
The 49 years old actor have such a terrific career in so many ways, such film, television, plays, directing and acting then on May last year, Kate left him with 3 children after lost battle to cancer.
“It’s all – you know, it’s been a really wonderful year when it comes to career, but certainly, I never would be where I am now without Kate, and I’m sad that I am here now without Kate. She was an extraordinary person. She was the strongest person I’ve ever met, and she died unnecessarily of cancer.”
“There’s all the blaming of yourself, which you can’t do, but you kind of do,” he shares, “and I’m just — I’m mostly sad.”
“I’m sad for Kate that she can’t be here, and I’m sad for my children that they didn’t have the opportunity to spend more time with her because she was an extraordinary person.”
Found the alternative treatments for cancer at the end, but three months too late for his wife, since the damage from the conventional treatments was too much. He believes, “It was not the cancer that killed her. It was the conventional treatments that killed her.”
“And that’s the most frustrating thing. The – having the knowledge that I have now, the understanding of cancer and its treatments and having discovered these alternative treatments is, it’s wonderful, it’s exciting, I know that I can help other people, but I’m sad that we discovered them literally three months too late.”
Talking about his new role as a man that suspected of raping and killing a young girl in the new movie “The Lovely Bones“, a single father of twins Isabel and Nicolo, 9 ½, and Camilla, 7, he has the “hesitant to take this role,”
“I was very hesitant to take this role – not only because of them, but just because I don’t – I’m never – I don’t care to watch movies or read books or see documentaries about serial killers or child molesters or people who are both. I don’t – there’s too much of it around. I think America’s kind of obsessed with it.”
“So it’s not interesting to me, and I find it repellant. Not that we should pretend these people don’t exist, but if you looked at the media, you’d swear that there’s a serial killer lurking around every corner.”
