8:37 am
>> i will see if i can get lyle to play that guitar for a second. thank you very much. lyle, keanu and iris, thank you. you can see all the gifts in the christmas book. up next, jessica chastain does scary.
8:38 am
two-time academy award nominee jessica chastain is one of the most sought after actresses in hollywood. her newest film is called "crimson peak." she plays lady lucille sharp who isn't happy when his brother moves his new bride into the family estate. >> i want this house to contain nothing but friendship, love and warmth. >> warmth would be an excellent start. thomas, your bride. >> forgive. let's go upstairs.
8:39 am
>> lucille, when it's convenient would you mind giving me a copy of the house keys, please? >> you don't need one. >> i'm sorry? >> there are parts of the house that are unsafe. it will take you time to familiarize yourself. should you still need them i'll have copies made. >> she seems friendly. >> chilly. >> a little chilly. nice to see you. this movie will freak people out. >> i hope so. >> you like doing this? >> it's fun. this genre is a great place for female roles. it's great. >> you told "time" magazine this will change the way we view women in movies. >> i mean, that's a broad statement. i think i was talking about the genre of the gothic romance. the lead character played by mia wasikowska is allowed to be a sexual creature and not be punished for that. >> is it true that the director wanted you for the other role and you wanted to be the evil character? >> he sent it to me thinking i would respond to edith.
8:40 am
that's the lead character. so of course, what actress wouldn't? i wanted the darker one. >> were you the little girl who loved these movies or did they get to you and give you nightmares? >> i loved it. when i was in high school, i had gothic friends and, oh, my god, we loved "interview with a vampire" with tom cruise and brad pitt and the costumes. it was fun. >> do you believe in ghosts? >> yeah. >> like in the floating figure ghosts or just kind of misplaced spirits? >> it's more fun to believe in ghosts than not to. yes, i believe in ghosts. sometimes the lights turn off and on if i'm in london or something. i always say, hey, okay, great. you're here. i recognize you. i'm super tired. please let me sleep. >> you have had experiences that you relate to ghosts? >> yeah. who knows? it could be an electrical -- >> a short circuit. >> it's more fun to think someone's trying to communicate. >> i had a house where a chair would move -- a rocking chair.
8:41 am
>> how long did you stay there? >> long time. a few years. i was reading about you last night as we often do when someone like you is coming. first of all, you have a reputation. do you know what it is? >> sounds terrible. >> i mean it in a good way. do you know what it is? >> what? >> you don't just take a role. you dive into roles. >> yeah . >> how do you plead? >> absolutely true. to the sadness of my family and friend s. >> is it just the way you learn? >> you know, when you are playing a character you have to defend them and understand them. it's fun ch playing a character like celia foote from "the help" because you're love and light. playing lucille you have to defend dark actions. that can get tough. >> the other thing i read and i don't know if this is a statement that gets taken out of context but you have a hidden desire to play the villain in a bond movie. >> yeah. it started out at the beginning in 2011 with people saying wouldn't you like to be a bond girl?
8:42 am
wouldn't that be fun? yeah, that would be fun but i would rather play a villain. then you are someone to contend with. and how much fun would it be to kick bond's ass once in a while? >> fun, i guess. he's not happy playing bond, mr. craig. >> really? >> he made disparaging comments but that's for another interview we'll probably never do. this is "crimson peak," lady lucille. good to see you. >> good to see you. >> thank you very much. this movie is from our sister company universal. it opens friday. if you like to be extra spooked it will be available in imax as well. up next, martha stewart getting souped up. first on a tuesday morning this
8:43 am

8:44 am
cooking with martha is brought to you by macy's. >> we are back.
8:45 am
this morning on our super supper series we have the one and only martha stewart here to make us a mushroom soup featured in martha stewart "living." good morning. >> good morning. >> do you love soup season? >> it's a wonderful time of year. so healthy and good for you. >> absolutely. >> this is an especially delicious soup made with farrow which is the oldest grain, oldest wheat grain known to us. it's high in protein. >> great for energy. overnight is best. three quarters of a cup of farrow soaked in cool water overnight. >> okay. >> i could do it over here. we'll make it with lots of different mushrooms. >> what do you like? >> these are porcini, dried have
8:46 am
a tremendous amount of good flavor. >> okay. >> we have other mushrooms, too. >> i see you soaking them. >> they're dried and you have to make sure they absorb a lot of liquid to get tender. chop them up like this. >> okay. >> first in this pot add your chicken stock. three and a half cups. and now your farrow, strained. >> all right. >> that's the overnight soak for narrow. >> right. now it's ready to cook. >> all right. >> add that to the chicken stock. >> okay. >> let that cook for approximately 45 minutes. >> all right. >> we have onions. >> these grains, by the way, the old-fashioned, unusual, antique versions of grains come from places that are artisanal these came from phoenix. the zimmerman family revitalized all the old grains.
8:47 am
they are healthy for you. >> they are having a resurgence. let's check in with the tasting table. >> martha, this is really good. >> fantastic. >> could you use fresh mushrooms instead of dry? >> here's a fresh one. this is hen of the woods. have you used that crazy mushroom? chantarelle are delicious. oyster mushrooms and these odd ones. these are royal trumpet mushrooms. >> wow. >> chop them up like this. you need about one and a quarter pounds. stir them with a half a stick of butter, three garlic gloves and one white or yellow onion. add the soaked porcini to those. saute until they look like this. beautiful. >> i would eat that. >> that's great over pasta. you would like that. >> the last step is what? >> this is the farrow. it's now tender. see how it gets swollen and
8:48 am
splits up. add your mushrooms. >> the smell is amazing. >> unbelievable, right? >> i want a room fragrance like that. >> if you like -- oh, i turned it up to 20. turn it down to zero. >> got it. >> thank you. in your pan you can add a little bit of tried sherry just to add a tiny bit of flavor. do you taste the sherry? >> not really. >> quarter of a cup. just brings out the flavors. >> they just said, send more sherry. >> a little bit of vinegar to brighten the flavor. >> served with a beautiful crusty bread. >> that's it. want a taste? >> of course. if you want this recipe and more delicious dinner ideas go to >> salt and pepper. >> the company is rushing to make the holiday candle, wild mushroom. >> you know what? it will be a best seller, matt. >> amazing. >> we have wonderful recipes
8:49 am
