Linda Cardellini Interview

Linda Cardellini Is Used to Being Called a Homewrecker

Cardellini is most often recognized as a teenager probably has less to do with her career than it does that, at 39, she still kind of resembles one. Here we discuss, among other things, sibling rivalry, the perils of breastfeeding in a Janie Bryant original, and the lasting legacy of Lindsay Weir.

prior to Bloodline and Mad Men, you took some time off from show business…

Yeah, to travel and to have a baby. You don’t have much choice in terms of taking time off. I mean, it’s a baby. So…

Right. Safe to say that the wet nurse era has passed.

[Laughs] Yeah, and right after that [I got] Mad Men. All those scantily clad scenes, these close-ups. Right after I’d had a baby, I was right back in it.

Was it disappointing to be “scantily clad” on a show that’s so well known for its costumes?

Janie [Bryant, the costume designer on Mad Men] is incredible. She makes one-of-a-kind pieces. But, you know, part of the costume actually includes undergarments, which everyone wears even if they’re not scantily clad. They inform your character and how you move. You have a garter, you have the old fashioned stockings, and you have underwear, which are much bigger than the underwear we wear today.

Cotton, or…

More like polyester.

Nothing breathed in the ’60s.

You weren’t really supposed to breathe either! I mean, don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t as bad as wearing a corset or anything. At the time I was breastfeeding, so I was primarily worried that I’d ruin something. [Laughs] I don’t know if I should say that. Maybe it changes the opinion of the character.

Do people often mistake you for the characters you play?

Yes, and it’s a double-edged sword. You want people to believe what you’re doing, so if they believe it, feel passionate about it—and, in turn, dislike you for something unlikable that your character does—in one way, that’s a good thing. But as a person, it’s not easy to digest. I’ll tell you the first time it ever happened: I was on Boy Meets World and I broke up Cory and Topanga. That was one of my very first jobs. I came in, and he cheated on his girlfriend with me. At the time I didn’t even understand the gravity of it—and even still people are like, “I’m mad about that!” I remember a bunch of kids running up to me and yelling, “Homewrecker!” and then running away. It was the first time I’d been recognized in public: a group of little kids calling me a homewrecker.

What did your mother do for a living?

She was a homemaker.

And how did that inform your personal career goals?

My mom is a very independent person and she’s the funniest, smartest person in the room, all the time. She’s strong and pretty, and she believed in the power of a great example. Just because someone isn’t working at an office doesn’t mean they’re not working hard at something. My mom was there for everything, every show. She led me to believe—and my dad, too—that I could do anything I put my mind to, regardless of whether it seemed impossible to other people. She showed me how a woman could be.

In Bloodline, you play the youngest of four. What was it like to grow up the youngest of four in real life?

My house was always filled with people. I have a ton of cousins, but I was the youngest of the generation and the baby of the entire family. It was always a party at our house. And between my mom and my other female relatives, it was full of strong women. I have a sister, in particular, who’s 13 years older than me. So growing up and watching her—watching her go to work, especially—was hugely influential to me. As the youngest, with a sibling that’s a decade older, I had certain things that I would go to her about instead of my mother. If there were questions about sex, for instance…

And now you’re a mother.

Yes. And I see my mom in her. And my sister. I see all of them in her. My daughter’s very strong-willed. Very talkative.

I read that it was a demanding pregnancy—sort of a near-death experience?

When I was nine months pregnant, I got sick with this super-infection, which included double pneumonia. Both my eardrums blew. My face was paralyzed. And then, when I had the baby, there were a few things that happened that were also very scary: I was in labor and they were losing her heart rate, and mine was going down too, so I had to have an emergency C-section. And I had an epidural that went too far, so my breathing was compromised—and then my daughter was stuck and had the cord around her neck, which is a common complication by itself, but I had several complications at once. But now she’s here, and she’s amazing, so there’s no complaining about any of it. I’m very lucky that we’re fine.

There’s a lot of family tension on Bloodline, and a lot of bickering between your character and her brothers…

What I thought was interesting about Bloodline is that the trouble starts when my character’s eldest brother comes back. And his being that much older—and growing up as the first child as opposed to my character growing up as the fourth child—there are big differences in upbringing and memory. Being the first child is very different from being the fourth. And I can relate to that. I feel like there are a lot of changes that people and especially parents go through between their first child and their last.

Do you ever watch your own shows?

I like watching the other actors, but the hard thing about watching yourself is that the performance is done, and no matter how you’d like to tweak it, there’s nothing you can do.

Is there a role for which you get recognized the most?

It depends where I am. Internationally ER was a big hit. But here it’s mostly Freaks and Geeks.

Do you ever get sick of being known as Lindsay Weir?

No. I’m so proud of it.
