After playing the famously unlovely leading lady in director Cary Fukunaga’s new film adaptation of Jane Eyre, Mia Wasikowska could do with some glamour. Aptly, the petite, nearly pixieish actress donned a floaty, chiffon-dappled Elie Saab tea-length frock at the W magazine and Saab-hosted (that’s the automaker, not the Lebanese designer) screening last night and it was something of a relief. “I always find the costume is the last piece of the puzzle for getting into character,” Wasikowska said. “Especially for this movie, it was so important to feel the repression. The corsets are awful, I couldn’t wait to get out of it every day.”

Set to open in select theaters nationwide this Friday, this remake of the Charlotte Brontë classic novel is the latest in a long line of cinematic interpretations. But the coming-of-age (and finding love, naturally) plot never seems to exhaust its evergreen appeal, especially among a smart female set. Glenn Close, her daughter Annie Starke, and Zoë Kravitz all caught the flick and after-party later at the Soho Grand Hotel. Rose Byrne professed that “it was one of my favorite books I read in school. It’s one of the seminal novels.” (The occasional guy has a soft spot for it too, like designer Thakoon Panichgul, at left with Wasikowska, who stopped by the bash.)

Another part of the draw was Wasikowska’s co-star, the handsome Michael Fassbender. (The duo also posed together for the April cover of W.) In the film, the actor takes on the conflicted role of Edward Rochester, a man who locks his mad wife up in the attic. “He’s a really troubled guy, almost bipolar you could say,” Fassbender described. Lucky for the ladies, his real-life persona was much more light-hearted. The actor revealed that Catcher in the Rye was his preferred classic. “Although,” he added with a laugh, “Winnie the Pooh was really the first book to make an impression on me.”

Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender Talk New 'Jane Eyre'
By Litty Samuel Posted Mar 9th 2011 03:00PM

Dark and mysterious story lines always make for good drama in itself, but when you intertwine it with romance and throw in a couple corsets and petticoats, you have a compelling movie, which draws in audiences for a box office hit. Or maybe that's what director Cary Fukunaga is hoping for with the release of his new movie 'Jane Eyre,' starring Mia Wasikowska and Michael Fassbender.

Keeping classic novels such as 'Jane Eyre' fresh after many remakes and adaptations is almost all the work, especially when everyone already knows how the story ends. Audiences need motivation to drag themselves to theaters and continue to sit and watch for two hours. They need a kind of movie that makes them forget that they ever bought popcorn at all. They need a movie that makes them forget about the loud "slurper" sitting behind them. Watch the cast interview after the jump!

Fukunaga puts a twist on 'Jane Eyre' by telling his cast to focus on the parts of the novel that are eerie and mysterious to give the movie a bit of an edge. "The book really is gothic in itself ... and it's a lot about the unknown and the unseen and the unspoken," says Mia Wasikowska who plays the character Jane Eyre.

"I'm always nervous because I want to make sure that I've done justice to the writer, and all the other elements involved," says Michael Fassbender about his character Edward Rochester. "After all, once it's up there, it's documented for life," continues Fassbender, laughing. Let's hope for Michael Fassbender's sake that his iconic role will be documented as one for the books.

Check out Cary Fukunaga's adaptation of 'Jane Eyre' in theaters Friday, March 11.
