The Face – “I’d love to play an alien,” the actress Haley Lu Richardson tells me over a Zoom call when I ask her what kind of role she’d like to tackle next. While it’s unclear whether she means the cyborg-headed, drooling kind that dry heaves into Sigourney Weaver’s ear or one more akin to the kitschy, operatic belter in The Fifth Element, one thing’s for certain: she’s done playing teenagers (well, maybe just one more).

[…] I inquire about her position as a career teen. ​“I’m drawn,” the actress pauses to let out a stifled burp, ​“to young adult stories when they also explore something with depth, or that’s real and universal,” she explains. ​“The worst kind of teen genre movies to read are the ones where it’s like ​‘teenage heartbreak!’ And I’m like, ​‘I don’t care!’ I’m 25 years old now, I really don’t care about that anymore.

[…] Unpregnant is the Superbad of abortion movies. It performs a genre-bending juggling act, finding a surprising balance between the earnest friendship at the core of Booksmart mixed with the high-octane adrenaline of Thelma & Louise. At its zaniest, the film enters hostage territory Cape Fear style, swapping out a tattoo-knuckled Robert DeNiro for an anti-choice couple with serious road rage.

Like Veronica and Bailey, Richardson and Ferreira, too, are polar opposites, whose inherent differences balance the other out. ​“I was lucky in that they loved each other immediately, and that their wild, offbeat energies worked really well for the characters,” the film’s director Rachel Lee Goldberg says.

The pair even began performing their special choreographed handshake when the cameras weren’t rolling, whenever they saw one another. The co-stars appear in virtually every scene together and endured turbulent weather conditions on set in New Mexico, including arctic temperatures during their frequent night shoots. […]

“Unpregnant” Blu-Ray Screen Captures

Rachel Lee Goldenberg’s “Unpregnant” has finally become available only on HBO Max, and it is a beautiful coming-of-age story I recommend to anyone who is wondering if they should watch it or not. It is currently rated 88% on Rotten Tomatoes! I have added over 1,880 high-quality screen captures of Haley as Veronica to our gallery.

In Unpregnant, seventeen-year-old Veronica (Haley Lu Richardson) never thought she’d want to fail a test–that is, until she finds herself staring at a piece of plastic with a blue plus. With a promising college-bound future now disappearing before her eyes, Veronica considers a decision she never imagined she’d have to make. This never-taken-lightly decision leads her on a 1000 mile hilarious road trip to New Mexico over three days with her ex-best friend, Bailey (Barbie Ferreira) where they discover sometimes the most important choice you’ll make in life is who your friends are.

HBO Max Drive-In Premiere of “Unpregnant”

Back on Thursday, Haley and fiancé Brett Dier attended the HBO Max Drive-In Premiere of “Unpregnant” in Glendale, California. As you can tell by the pictures, social distancing was enforced, and masks were mandatory! This was the first event they attended in months, and it also saw Haley’s reunion with co-star and friend Barbie Ferreira. High-quality pictures are available in our gallery.

Nylon – If this was any other year, Haley Lu Richardson would be talking about her new film, HBO Max’s Unpregnant, out Friday, on the red carpet of a fancy premiere party, wearing a sparkly minidress or some other fabulous designer piece. But this is 2020, so on a Friday night, she’s chatting over Zoom, taking sips from a can of pear-flavored hard cider. And she’s dressed in a Jonas Brothers T-shirt.

Oh no, you were able to tell that this was the Jonas Brothers,” she screams, bashfully jumping out of computer frame. But just as quickly, she’s back, with full conviction. “I went to twelve Jonas Brothers concerts when I was young, and I was very much convinced that I was going to marry Nick Jonas. Now that I look back, my personality… I feel like I should’ve been a Joe girl. But Nick is so serious and I think there was just something that little me, young me, just found so, oh my gosh… he’s so passionate about his craft. And he had the curly hair.” At this point, she’s fully committed to the nostalgia, recounting tales of a blown-up picture of her and the JoBros that still resides in her Arizona childhood bedroom. (“I have braces, I have a unibrow, and my hair is straightened to the point where it’s like pieces of straw,” she says. “I’m wearing a tie because Nick always wore ties.”) She even attempted to give Nick a tie she hand-crafted, only to be thwarted by security.

Going to see their Happiness Begins show was like, nostalgic doesn’t even cover,” she continues, reminiscing on last year’s reunion tour, where she picked up the T-shirt she’s sporting currently. “I started getting emotional — I also probably was a little bit drunk — because I was just reflecting on those feelings that I had when I was young and how far I’ve come as a person, and how far all the things they’ve done in their lives and careers. They’re all married and having babies, I was just so proud of them and proud of myself, and it was just this full circle, emotional moment.” Only one thing hasn’t panned: she still hasn’t met Nick. “I thought that could maybe be a perk of me being an actor and everything,” she says, laughing. “Meeting them or crossing paths or being in the same party. But no, never.

[…] In Unpregnant, Richardson — who introduces herself as just Haley, saying, “I’m very sensitive to feeling pretentious” — reunites with one of her very first collaborators, writer and director Rachel Lee Goldenberg, who directed her in the 2013 Lifetime movie Escape From Polygamy (it’s about exactly what the title indicates). She stars as Veronica, a play-by-the-rules high school senior in Missouri who finds herself unexpectedly pregnant. Knowing that having a baby is not the right decision for this chapter in her life, she decides to schedule an abortion at the closest clinic that will take her: some 14 hours away in Albuquerque. With no other options, she embarks on a road trip with former BFF Bailey, played by Barbie Ferreira.

Much will be made about calling this film an “abortion movie,” which it is not. Upon making her decision to terminate her pregnancy at the top of the film, Veronica never waivers or doubts her choice; it’s merely the catalyst (albeit one handled sensitively and with grace, thanks to Goldenberg’s directing and Richardson’s charm) to what the film is at heart: a hilarious and heartwarming buddy comedy. “It was so important that this movie isn’t about ‘Should I or shouldn’t I?’” explains Richardson. “She knows that this is not right for her. She knows what she needs to do and she needs to do it as soon as possible so that she can move on with her life… It’s so complex and there’s so much in this movie. The stuff that they go through as friends, and that kind of self discovery and balance of two people that were so connected when they were young. They go separate ways and they each individually grow within themselves. Then they come together, and they’re like a mirror, they show each other things that they’ve been missing. That’s so real.

[…] Richardson, in general, is someone who prefers to look on the brighter side of life. Even her virtual life is sunny: Her “Animal Crossing” island, on which she estimates she’s spent 480 hours playing since quarantine began, is named Smiley Town. “Honestly, my best friends and then Brett, even my parents — even though they’re in Arizona — literally have all separately had serious interventions with me saying that they think I have an actual problem, or saying that they feel neglected, genuinely,” she admits. “The one thing I will have a huge ego about is my ‘Animal Crossing’ island. I’m not afraid to just brag for hours. I’m going to do an island tour soon because it’s a disservice to the world that they don’t see my island, and I feel like I’m keeping my biggest accomplishment and potential hidden from the public. Honestly it’s the proudest thing in my life, on par with this movie, and I am proud of this movie. I’m very, very proud of Smiley Town.
