The multifaceted veteran actress is both hard to categorize and curiously undercelebrated

A bold proclamation, from a May 4, 1986, New York Times headline: “LAURA DERN IS A TEEN-AGER TO TAKE SERIOUSLY.”

Then 19 years old, Dern — the willowy, blond daughter of actors Bruce Dern and Diane Ladd — was promoting Smooth Talk, a coming-of-age drama adapted from a short story by Joyce Carol Oates. Dern played Connie, a troubled, sexually curious 15-year-old who gets involved with an older man, played by Treat Williams. It was a decidedly adult role for a young actress, but that wasn’t out of character for Dern; she’d already played a blind teenager in the tearjerker Mask and a girl whose teacher comes on to her in, well, Teachers. Those were the breaks for a girl a little too off-kilter to be in the Brat Pack. “People now tell me it’s a good thing I stayed away from teen films,” Dern mused in the profile. “Well, it wasn’t my choice. I wasn’t hired. You name a movie with a young girl in the last five years” — Flashdance, Pretty in Pink — “and I’m sure I was up for it.” Said her costar Williams, quite prophetically, “She’s not as salable a persona as some of these other young actresses. She’s not so easy to categorize. So I see a longer path for her, but ultimately a more rewarding one.”

Laura Dern may be one of the few people on the planet right now who knows more about Twin Peaks than you do. Not much, but just enough to be able to render something of a review. In a recent interview with W‘s Lynn Hirschberg, Dern described the experience thusly: “What I know is he blew my mind in ways that were even more unexpected. And I’ve known him my whole life…It’s like a dream you wake up from and you can’t believe you’ve been there but you want to fall back asleep to get back inside of it, but it scares you. You know, it’s amazing. ”

Dern, who is on something of a roll—having become an unlikely heroine through Big Little Lies, and with two high-profile projects in the works, including Star Wars: The Last Jedi—has the unique distinction of being one of the few actors who’s achieved muse status with David Lynch, having now worked together four times, including the new Twin Peaks. The daughter of Academy Award-nominated actors Diane Ladd and Bruce Dern, the actress, twice Oscar-nominated herself most recently for Wild, recalls in the interview how she fell in love with acting, visiting the sets of Alfred Hitchcock and Martin Scorsese in her youth, the physicality of her roles, and her memories of auditioning with Kyle MacLachlan for Blue Velvet.

Laura Dern recognizes that there can be a major generational gap between mothers and their daughters that becomes especially apparent when it comes to making their voices heard and giving back.

There’s a scene in HBO’s “Big Little Lies,” which Dern says is one of the most interesting of the series, that demonstrates this tension perfectly: Dern’s character Renata Klein ferociously confronts her daughter, Amabella, about who’s been physically bullying her at school and urges her to speak up for herself. Amabella, who’s in first grade, expresses fear over using her voice to reveal the truth and doesn’t think that it will truly be heard.

It’s this fear of being silenced, ignored or not being able to make a difference that Dern sees as a major hurdle in getting the new generation of children to also give back. Recognizing this, the 50-year-old actress has partnered with Johnson & Johnson and the United Nations Foundation for the Global Moms Relay, which will see J&J donating $1 for every photo shared on social media to one of five nonprofit partners dedicated to health and wellbeing.

The accessibility of the campaign is what attracted Dern to accepting an invitation to take part. I recently caught up with her at the Moms + SocialGood launch event in New York City to talk about the causes she most fiercely advocates for, what Sting and Trudie taught her about encouraging children to give back and the “delicious fun” she had playing Renata Klein on “Big Little Lies.”
