“Both are really meaningful to me. Both are fundamental emotional experiences to me,” said Ramirez in an exclusive interview with Latin Post.
Both movies coming out on the same day is a coincidence and a challenge for the actor as he has had to split his time promoting both films and making sure to give each project the same time.
“It is very unique. At the beginning I felt very torn because it’s like who do you love more? Dad or Mom?” he said. “Of course it’s not the ideal situation because you want to give your full attention to one thing. But I also try to make the best out of its situation and it’s a very unique moment and I’m trying to enjoy it. All I can say it’s like double feature for Christmas day.”
In “Joy,” Ramirez was working with David O. Russell and Jennifer Lawrence for the first time, an experience he relishes.
