Rita Moreno talks "One Day during a Time" remake, serenades Charlie Rose
When Norman Lear approached actress Rita Moreno about being in his new show, Moreno fast agreed.
“Then we said, ‘What is it?’ And he said, ‘One Day during a Time.’ And a rest is going to be story since it is a superb show,” Moreno said.
Lear, a mythological radio author and writer who’s remaking his classical 1970s sitcom on Netflix, is unequivocally most concerned in a process, according to Moreno.
“Every bit of it, that aged fart. He’s 94. we contend he’s an aged fart. I’m 85,” Moreno said.
Moreno, whose career spans 7 decades, is partial of a small, chosen organisation of “EGOT” performers who have won all 4 prestigious party awards: an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony. Now she’s starring as Lydia in a story that follows 3 generations of a Cuban-American family in Los Angeles.
“I am a mom of a mom who thinks she is God’s gift, that is always fun to play,” Moreno said. “She’s unequivocally vain, full of herself, and unequivocally theatrical.”
At first, Moreno was disturbed about memorizing her lines since she was “searching for words.”
“What we schooled from it is that when we rivet your brain, it’s positively loyal what they say. When we rivet your brain, it only keeps removing fatter and richer and wonderful,” Moreno said. “And by a time we’d finished with 13 episodes, we was memorizing like — [snap, snap, snap] – this.”
Asked about a life she’s lived, Moreno asked, “What about my life?” as a “CBS This Morning” co-hosts bursted into laughter.
“I’ve had many of them. Which one are we referring to?” Moreno said. “The Marlon Brando episode, a Elvis Presley.”
“Well, who was better?” Charlie Rose asked.
“Are we serious?! we mean, Elvis was a honeyed darling, bashful fellow, though he was unequivocally boring. Boring to me during a time,” Moreno said. “He was a unequivocally good guy. But he was boring. Marlon, Marlon, what a brain. What an startling male he was. He damn nearby killed me, though nevermind. It’s good to be means to be here and tell a story.”
