JW:  Could you tell us Denise, about working on the film “American Violence”? What was the experience like?

Denise Richards: I had a great experience working on the movie. My first day of shooting were all the scenes with Kai at the prison. Our director Tim was amazing with us and created an environment for Kai & I to jump right in with challenging scenes.

JW:  What was it like working with actor Bruce Dern?

Denise Richards: Unfortunately I didnt have the pleasure to even meet him. Our scenes were never shot on the same day.

JW:  How do you choose the films that you act in?

Denise Richards: Every project is different. For this one, it was an opportunity for me to play a different role, I also wanted to work with the director Timothy Woodward. What is the sign of a good script, for you? I love all different genres. When I am reading a script and cant put it down.

JW:  What lies in the future for you, Denise?

Denise Richards:   For my job it makes it exciting when different opportunities come that I wasn’t expecting. I worked on quite a few projects this past year that I really enjoyed. I love working and it was a great year for me being able to play different roles.  And As long as my kids are happy and we are all healthy thats my first priority.

JW:  Are you involved with animal rights, could you tell us about this?

Denise Richards: I am. I work very closely with a few organizations. There are far too many animals in shelters needing a good home. Im very passionate about animal cruelty and being a voice for animals.
