Kathryn Hahn Reflects On “Creatively Thrilling” Acting Period

It’s a cliche, but Kathryn Hahn is that perpetual scene stealer, an actress who breathes life into everything she inhabits. Whether it’s We’re the Millersthe unfortunately short-lived TV series Free AgentsStep Brothers, or last year’s indie drama Afternoon DelightHahn is just a pleasure to watch, mixing an innate likability, hilarity, and a subtle touch of pathos to her work.

With Bad Words, a comedy which marks the feature directing debut of Jason Bateman, Hahn plays a reporter who’s trying to figure out why a grown up misanthrope (Bateman) has entered a revered spelling bee contest in Los Angeles. Like much of her previous work on television and film, Hahn’s comedic abilities are on full display.
