"Hey everybody, thrilled to have you back for another edition of just getting started. This time I went deep into my own rolodex as I feel like I do every week because let's face it. You gotta make your life easy and I feel like I want to hear stories from people that I want to hear from selfishly it's my podcast when I get to choose, right? So I went and asked my friend Elizabeth Banks if she could join us because she is a fellow asshole from Massachusetts. I feel like we are a very specific breed. Yes. I'm not wrong. Am I no, I was at a I was at a wake recently and someone was like, hey, are you from Massachusetts? And I was like, yeah, and it was Dennis lane, who's famously for Massachusetts. And I was like, yeah, Dennis lane. And instant connection. I've never met this person. Day in my life, but it was like instantaneous that we both knew we were mast cells. Why do you think people from Massachusetts just know that somebody else is a mass or do we have like a tattoo on our foreheads? Is it the beanie with a pom pom? Like, what is it? No, I think, you know what? I think it is. Massachusetts is mostly a working class town, like the whole state. And I think anybody who makes it out is like, hey, did you make it out? And by the way, you can do that even in Massachusetts, but I think people who make it out and are doing something. In the world, I just think other people from Massachusetts are like, can you believe it? Because mostly, everybody's just people don't leave. I mean, my whole theme. Yeah, my mom got out. My mom went to New York to be with me and then I promptly moved to California. That worked out well. But I just think it's funny. There's something about that Massachusetts mentality that really shapes you as you get older. I feel like the older I get, the more New England I become. Why do you think that what does that mean to you? To me it means my values are very centered. I'm very straightforward, I am less attracted to flash and circumstance and pomp and all that will pomp and circumstance than I was when I was younger. And I just feel like it's a stalwart sensibility. Yeah, I think that's right. I think it's like the pilgrims work ethic. Do you know what I mean? It really takes a lot to cross an ocean. There's rebelliousness in it, obviously. Because we had to rebel in order to do it. But then once people got here and pillaged the land and killed a lot of people. Post genocide. So I do want to recognize that. But there was a really strong wait a minute. You don't think that the pilgrims and the Indians got together. I don't think they shook hands. Because that's what I learned. I still don't limit The Rock and I was like, woohoo. We did it. It's not cool. I'm really glad our kids are not learning that. No, I mean, I think about how I did take our kids to Lexington and Concord. Last summer. When we were back home after camp. And it was, I had forgotten how fun it is to go through that. They were bored for a fair amount of time. Sure. I thought it was fantastic. Oh, me too. I also love a Hancock shaker village or a stir bridge. This is like we're getting local for the masalas. By the way, for the international listeners, you have no idea what we're talking about. So we do apologize. You can learn a lot of American history and a lot of towns in Massachusetts and one of those are some of them that you and I have been talking about. The Revolutionary War was begun there and there's some really cool stuff. One of brilliant two if I see. So how did a kid from Pittsfield get to become a Hollywood superstar? How did this happen? 'cause I always think it's, I always think at the end of the day, I remember even throughout my career, I'm just a kid from south Dartmouth Massachusetts, deep down, right? South damn with Massachusetts. And a lot of people from South Africa stay in south damn it. So the question is, how did that happen? And we can talk about this for the next 5 hours straight, but how does a kid from Pittsfield Massachusetts become an internationally acclaimed director and celebrity and actor, et cetera? You know, yes, also self made millionaire. I do like to I've started to say that because I feel like people, especially women forget that part. And I know that term is also problematic. We're going to have a lot of problematic terms today. By the way, the next podcast I want to become will be called problematic term, which by the way, I kind of like. So you know, I don't know, I don't know if it's if it's something that you're born with or that you learn, but I had a really strong sense. One that I had city blood, you know? I did was not like my town was not big enough for me. And I don't know what that is. I just think you know it inside of yourself that there's something else out there for you. I grew up in Pittsfield, Massachusetts is a small town. I think there's about 30,000 people in it now. It's actually, so it's not that small of a town. There are smaller towns around it. It's actually the hub of western Massachusetts. But it was a General Electric factory town, my father worked in the factory. And I just knew I wanted something bigger better. And I grew up going to cities. I grew up going to New York and going to Boston. And going to Montreal and Cleveland and Chicago, and so I knew what cities were. And that was for me. That was a life for me. Once I saw it, that's what I wanted. And I just spent my time in school, knowing that if I did well in school, that was my ticket out. I really believe in education for that reason for most people. It can be, it is a pathway to something else in life. And that's what I did. I went to Penn in Philadelphia..
