[alison brie husband]Alison Brie On Her ‘Fashion Inspiration’Husband Dave Franco, ‘Mad Men’ Outfits And ‘GLOW’
Alison Brie’s roles are as memorable as they are adored.
From Community’s overachiever Annie, to Mad Men’s sharp Trudy, to GLOW’s underdog Ruth, Brie has been a steady presence on our TV screens for more than a decade in a variety of roles that solidify her acting prowess.
With a string of films under her belt too (The Disaster Artist, How To Be Single, The Five Year Engagement), Brie is back in the Golden Globe and BAFTA nominated Promising Young Woman, the feature length directorial debut from Emerald Fennell, starring Carey Mulligan as Cassie, a woman seeking revenge on behalf of her dead friend Nina by avowing to teach any man who blurs the line of consent a lesson.
Brie plays Cassie’s and Nina’s college classmate Madison, who is later confronted by Cassie over her refusal to believe Nina and her consequent complicity.
Asked about the hardest part of playing Madison, Brie told ELLE UK it was ‘everything about that character’ before explaining the technical difficulty of coming into a movie for a limited time but with very hard-hitting, intense scenes.
Reflecting on her other roles, Brie told us she relates most to GLOW’s Ruth and that what she most misses about the show (in October, it was announced that the show had been cancelled by Netflix following its third season) is the crew, cast and actually getting to wrestle with her co-stars. Brie famously performed many of the stunts and skills in the ring herself after committing to learning moves and strength training to play the part in the cult series.
Brie also spoke about her favourite costumes from her time as Trudy Campbell in Mad Men as well as what she’d hope for her character following the show’s ending in 2015. She hopes she and Pete would be happy after jetting away for a fresh start in the show’s final episode, ‘but that’s probably not what Trudy’s life would look like… I’m sure Pete would continue to cheat on her,’ she acknowledges with fans of the show undoubtedly agreeing with a sigh.
Around the same time as Promising Young Woman, Brie also worked with her husband Dave Franco in his directorial debut, horror movie The Rental. Brie sweetly chose Franco as her ‘biggest fashion inspiration’ when asked by ELLE readers.

’That guy just dresses so cute,’ she laughs. ‘I’m always copying his day to day style in addition to trying to low-key shrink some of his sweatshirts so I can steal them. He’s slowly accepting it, he used to really not like it if we were dressed identically, now that we’ve been in quarantine together for a year he’s really caved and we’re ordering matching sweaters.’
