Ilana Glazer won’t be watching her own False Positive pregnancy horror movie now that she’s expecting it in real life.
The Broad City star, who is expecting her first child with husband David Rooklin, appears in the film alongside Justin Theroux as a couple struggling with fertility issues.
“It’s a horror movie about how women are treated in the medical system, especially when they are pregnant,” she said during a recent appearance on Live with Kelly and Ryan.
She closed her eyes when a clip of the film was screened, then added that her co-star Pierce Brosnan, who plays a world-renowned fertility specialist who isn’t quite what he seems, terrified her.
“Pierce is so scary in this movie, it’s shocking,” Glazer explained. “He was so good. You don’t think someone as handsome and stylish as he is (can) be so scary, but in reality those qualities make him scarier as a villain.”
Meanwhile, Glazer is currently very close to its due date.
“I feel like he’s a boy… I just feel a masculine spirit,” she said, adding that she was planning to keep the baby’s gender as a surprise. “Not knowing the gender makes it harder to bend over. You can actually take the baby home for a week or two (before officially naming it), so I think that’s what we’re going to do. .
“In Judaism you name it after a family member of the last person who died, and I’m a pretty big fan of the rules, unlike what it sounds like. So for me that’s the value default. Hope the name comes to us. “
Glazer recently suffered a false workplace incident and ended up having an awkward exchange with the doctor who examined her after revealing he was “a huge fan”.
“So now you’re going to see my vagina,” the actress joked at the time.
False Positive is scheduled for release on Friday.
