Michael Cera Embraces Womenswear

Michael Cera and Portia Doubleday in Youth in Revolt

enjoyed wearing a dress for his latest film role.

The Superbad actor - who plays two characters, an aspiring novelist Nick Twisp, and man of action Francois Dilinger in his latest film, - said he didn’t mind donning a dress for the role, because it was better than being stripped down to his boxers.

“I was just relieved to have something on. I was doing a scene with just boxers on before that, so it was just nice to not have people see me as much. That’s why it was so comfortable. I don’t think I was thinking about the dress. I was trying to remember what to say.”

The 21-year-old actor - who stars alongside Portia Doubleday in the movie - said it was fun to take on a role which was completely different to the goofy high school characters he had previously played.

“I was really excited to play that part and I had a lot of fun doing it. It was just fun to get to wear contacts, put a moustache on, transform how I looked, say really gross things and smoke. I had a lot of fun things to do with actors that I really admire, too. It was fun to have a scene with , where I had a challenging moment with him. There were just a lot of really fun scenes and things to do and say.”
