Hi All,

I once watched an interview and Samantha Mathis was talking about River and she wasn't saying anything nice about him. I don't recall the intire the interview for she was only on for about 30 seconds, but I do recall her saying something along the lines of "I don't really care about River, I have forgotten about him and the things he did. It's in the past." Does anyone know why she feels so sour toward him?

sorry to sound partonizing but are you sure you WATCHED this interview?

Its just that something along the lines of that was posted as a quote on her IMDB page and was proved to be fake...
I have HEARD a taped interview in which some of the lines of the quote were said but READING them all jumbled around it is easy to take what she in fact said out of context....

for example, she did say she had put river behind her (as she had to do) but follows that up with the fact she will never forget him. She also says something along the lines of her forgetting about the things he did- but, refering to his drug use- she follows it up with (because) he did so many things he SHOULD be remembered for, NOT his drug use.
She ends with saying what a hard time it was for her and how 'the other day' she turned on the tv and 'i love you death' was on,

'and there he was' she says, and thats how she likes to remember him.

Also, she takes part in an interview in the extra features of 'the thing called love' dvd- she talks about river with admiration and recounts some happy stories. She also says the reason she took the part was to work with river and that he 'was the greatest actor of my generation'.

If you did indeed see that interview and thats what she said, im sorry! but i have never heard her speak about him in any other way but complimentary...

oh! just to add...(devils advocate here!)

if she did say those things, i could understand why....
her whole career at that point became over-shadowed with the fact she was "river's girlfriend" and now, to many people, the main reason they know her is because of where she was on the 31st october 1993...not to mention the fact her boyfriend took her out and died in front of her- i imagine as well as being completely devastated and heartbroken by him being taken away from her, there would also be that resentment towards him for putting her in that position and then the guilt for feeling the resentment....im no doctor but...i think that how id be, definatly.

Yes, I did see the special features on "A thing Called Love" for I own it and it is my one of my favorite River movies. I can not recall the interview I seen where Mathis says these things but I do thank you for shedding the light. I to do believe that it was just the press editing it to sound more juicy and appealing. I honestly could not believe that anyone could just put River in their past as a "learning experience". But I do understand that she put him in her past because she can't go on with her life by keeping him in the present. River was great soul that obviously had some problems. But who can honestly say that they don't have problems??? Thanks again Rikki for your help.

Sam

By the way.... Did you ever get the link for the River Phoenix Final 24 episode??? I can't find it any where on the internet...

I did not see that... but i did read in a magazine he said that is was " the worst night of her life .. she said it was like a nightmare". duh


I dont care for her. She seemed fake to me... thats my opinion.

I myself have always like Samantha and from what i have read and seen i really don't think she said anything nasty about River or ever would. Now... that being said i still think that Martha although not as pretty as Sam was River's soulmate and maybe if they would of stayed together things would of turned out differently for River.

I agree Val, martha and River seemed to have something very special, I have always had the up-most respect for martha a. because she decided to end their relationship when she became uncomfortable with the drug thing and he would not listen to her B. because she never ended their friendship and was still there for him (very admirable i thought) and C. because when he died she was the only person who wasnt afraid, told it like it was and didnt cover it up with 'he was so sensitive', 'god wanted it this way', 'he was so naive!'. Martha has balls. I think the situation for River would have definatly turned out different had he stayed with her.

The thing that puts me off about Samantha is that it has been well documented that her motivation for taking part in 'the thing called love' was River being in it. It has also been well documented that she was in a relationship when she and River got together- thats always made me think that maybe there was something career-oriantated for her in thier relationship. Im just cynical i suppose! lol, River was in a more or less in a relationship when they got together too, so i shouldn't use that against her!

One thing I'm most certain of is that both t.v. and other forms of media are edited a lot. In fact some times the editing is slanted toward a certain opinion whether that was the original intent or not of the person interviewed.
For example my family was watching several shows lately where clips of the show were shown, but the clips were never part of the show we saw. So, where did the clips come from? Outer space maybe?
A person should not always take the few sound bites we hear seriously.

Yeah, ive always liked Martha. Haven't seen her at all, don't know if its just Australia (we miss some things you guys wouldn't). I like her and too she isn't like a model, she isn't ugly, but i think im sick of seeing perfect actresses in the media. She was skinny and lanky with blonde hair and deep voice, and i think she was more convincing than other actresses.
