Carol Burnett is an entertainment icon, a moniker achieved after five stellar decades in the business. She is most famously known for her wildly popular variety program The Carol Burnett Show, but also has appeared in some of Hollywood’s most astounding films. The award-winning actress stars in Disney’s The Secret World of Arrietty and is sitting with Movie Fanatic for an exclusive video interview to talk about the film, as well as what inspires a legend.
Her film career includes unforgettable turns in The Four Seasons, Annie, Noises Off and Horton Hears a Who! And on television her stellar work ranges from the show that bears her name to her recent appearance on Glee as Sue Sylvester’s mother.
In The Secret World of Arrietty, she plays Hara. She is a helper in a house that contains the smallest of people called the Borrowers. Convinced that those tiny people are real and not imaginary, she provides much of the film’s laughs with her escapades attempting to trap the Borrowers. She clearly relished the chance to be a part of the film and it was our honor to even sit with her for a few moments.
