'Polar Bear' Is Child's Play For Mark Ruffalo
Mark Ruffalo is no W.C. Fields. He loves to work with kids. In Infinitely Polar Bear most of his scenes are with two child actresses. Ruffalo plays the manic-depressive father of two, Amelia (Imogene Wolodarsky,12, the daughter of director Maya Forbes) and Faith (Ashley Aufderheide, 9). Zoe Saldana plays his estranged wife. "Kids are so fun to work with," says Ruffalo, a 46-year-old father of three. "There's no pretense. They're surprising and I love seeing them develop as young actors.
