in Hey Mom!Amanda Seyfried plays young Sophie, who invites three men who dated her mother around the time of her wedding, to find out who is her real father. However, the movie, nor its sequel in 2018, never reveals who really is between Bill (Stellan Skarsgård), Harry (Colin Firth), and Sam (Pierce Brosnan). However, in a video interview with Vanity Fair, the actress admitted that she had always hoped that this would be Bill. Speaking about a scene with Skarsgård, he says:
It’s one of the purest moments in the movie, because there’s so much pride in Stellan, but also so much shock and fear, but also complete acceptance in such a short time. It is a perfect squared moment of the circuit. she is beautiful. It’s fun too. Comedy is also very skillful. And I guess thanks to this moment, I’ve always secretly wished Stellan was her real dad. Bill, I’m sorry.
She was the person least likely to have children. And I think, from perception to acceptance. There is a scene that was cut with a song called The name of the game. We sing it together and I beg him something like “What is the name of the game?And I really love that moment with him. We had a great time. We have become very united. We did a movie, Stellan and I, right after that, where he played my boyfriend [Tradire è un’arte – Boogie Woogie, ndr].
