"Thank you, Jason. Seriously. Sam. Tell us what's making you happy. It still making me happy about a month in, but it has been just about a month since Beyoncé's album renaissance has been released. And I can't stop playing it. I can't stop playing it. And neither can anybody else. There's this wonderful video that Kevin Bacon. Yes, do you have bacon posted on social platforms a few days ago? He's performing an acoustic rendition of Beyoncé's heated from the new album. With his baby goats all around him. I got a fair for my girl. And it's amazing. And you realize watching Kevin Bacon pay homage to Beyoncé that this album has truly penetrated the zeitgeist. And it is a testament to Beyoncé's wisdom and power, some 20 years into her career that she still has this chokehold on us. I'm obsessed. Beyoncé, I love you. It is your year, your renaissance. Yes. I almost made that my happy, but I was like, yeah, you know what? That's so obvious. But I didn't think I could. I would have done it. We can definitely still dancing to it all the time and thinking about how amazing it is. Yeah. Well, I am never going to turn down an opportunity to talk about Beyoncé. So, Sam, that was Beyoncé, renaissance, making all of us happy still, of course. What's making me happy this week? Well, it's actually something that I saw months ago at Sundance, and it's finally come out. It was one of the movies that really stuck with me when I saw it there. And it's Emily the criminal, which stars the wonderful, amazing, weird, great Aubrey Plaza. And it's this very taut thriller slash action movie where she's playing this woman who's true to my soul, tens of thousands of dollars in debt, student debt, and she is struggling to find a well paying job because of a past criminal conviction. And so she finds herself connected to this credit card fraud ring, and then everything goes wrong. I just think it's really sharp. It's got all of the political current commentary going on here. She's giving this fantastic performance of a person who is both in over their head, but it's just so desperate, and it is trying to do what she can to just survive. And it's just really fun and thoughtful and it also has some great performances from Gina gershon and Theo Rossi. I highly recommend it. It's playing in theaters now, but if you're still a little iffy on going to the theaters or it doesn't have any plan near you, just note it for next time for later when it reaches VOD because I definitely think it's really, really fun. Also, it is 90 minutes and I love a 90 minute movie. Same year. Yes. So that is Emily the criminal, and that is what's making me happy this week.

"gina gershon" Discussed on Overthrowing Education
"Good time. I actually think that the fact that you came back a third time knowing that you were going to have to try this. This is very admirable on your part. Or maybe it was the reason why. I got to play that game show again. Yeah, well, you know, I like that you customize them for us. That's pretty awesome. It's thoughtful. Thank you. As good education should be, right? Of course. All right, so I definitely customize this one. As you know, we share a lot of ideas about education, but we also share a love for John Hughes movies from the 80s. Some of which I have to admit can not withstand the passage of time well. But we also love Harry Potter. So I'm going to read quotes from educators that are either in John Hughes 80s movie, or they are an educator from Hogwarts. And you're going to tell me which movie, if it's an 80s movie. And by the way, bonus points for naming the educator in that situation, or if the educator is from Hogwarts, then you have to tell me the name of the teacher. Okay. You don't have to tell me which film. Just the name of the teacher. Fair enough. All right. I'm going to start out with probably the easiest one, because honestly, I have not heard teacher who doesn't do this sometimes either ironically and satirically or really does this. So here's my first quote. Anyone, anyone? Anyone? So, I mean, I guess Ferris Bueller, yes. And it's Ben Stein, I forgot what his teacher. I don't know if he had a character named. He was the economics teacher. And everybody knows it was Ben Stein. Isn't that the most classic? When kids drooling on the desk? Actually. I love that scene so much. And I thought, I mean, I saw these way before I even considered being a teacher. And I did it anyway. Okay, here's the next one. Well, it may have escaped your notice, but life isn't fair. And that snape, Harry Potter, yeah. Yeah, that's very good. Okay. Here's another one. This one I'm gonna give you two. If you don't get it in the first one, I'll give you the second one, okay? Okay. Don't mess with the bull young man. You'll get the horns. Okay, that's The Breakfast Club. And it's the dean. And it's yelling at Judd. Yes, about it. And his name is, you know? Mister Vernon, mister Vernon, that's right. That's another classic Lincoln. I have pretty much I could recite that movie. I could tell I can see you can visually visualize these in your hand. Okay, here's the next one. It's the quality of one's convictions that determines success, not the number of followers. That's Dumbledore. No, it's lupin. Yes. Oh my gosh, you are really good at this. Yep, that way that's in the 8th in the 8th book, no 7th book, 8th movie, wow. That's super impressive. You're getting, if these points counted for anything, you'd be getting tons of them. That's great. I love a good point. Okay, so this next one, I think, is going to be the absolute hardest one. I don't know if you're going to get that. But we're going to give it a shot. I'm going to give you sort of two, even though there's something a little bit in between. I'm going to give you two quotes kind of in the row that happened very quickly in this. You are out of here hohmann. So do you share your partner's attitude? Hold on. Do you want to hit? All right, I actually can see it, I'm going to give you one hit. It's the gym teacher. Yeah, it's pretty in pink. Yes. Oh my gosh, you're so good. Yeah. I mean, that's the scene right at the beginning before she goes to the principal. That's amazing. So actually I want to tell you just a funny sideline is that I was watching to try to try to put together the game show and that was one that wasn't so obvious to me. And I saw Gina gershon was like in the background sort of as a background player. And at that time, because the movie, I think, came out in 86. Something like that. Yeah. So I went to NYU with her and she was in my acting class. That whole year. And I was like, I did not know that she was doing that, but yeah. That's crazy. So I was laughing. I was like, oh, there's okay. Here is your last one, and I have to say, this sums up literally the opposite of everything I believe in about education. So here we go. It is the view of the ministry that a theoretical knowledge, all right, you have to let me finish. I knew I assumed you said it was a complete opposite. Yes, before you even said it. That was such a dead giveaway. But here's the whole clue, just because people should hear this because it's so awful. And it's so done in so many schools. It is the view of the ministry that a theoretical knowledge will be more than sufficient to get you through your examination, which, after all, is what school is all about. The first time I read that and then heard it, I was like, oh, I wrote a blog post about all the things that were wrong about Hogwarts. Yeah. I'm going to read that. She is definitely the biggest thing, but she was kind of imposed upon them. So true. That's true. But I think the two pieces of that are just the things that are done is this idea of theoretical knowledge because so much in school. That's why active knowledge is so important and active learning is so important because that's what's going to stick. That's what's going to make sense. That's what's going to be used. That's what's authentic. And then the idea of the whole point of school actually is just to get through your examinations. I think that's how it's treated. It says it all. Yeah, it really does. I think what makes that so on the nose and like, what's egregious and yet sad about the statement is the fact that that's actually how most schools are. Teaching to the test, whether it's AP or standardized, the standardized tests that students have to take or that final, well, this is going to be on the final. That question, is this going to be on the final? Or is this going to be on the test? Like, I was so relieved to never hear that question the last ten or 15 years of my career because I didn't have tests. And I didn't do that. So that question just didn't come up. Very nice. Well, once again, you've totally aced it and in every way. The game show, everything about what you're doing, and I so appreciate it. This is always awesome. I feel like you and I can talk about this all day long. And maybe at some point we could go beyond the podcast and maybe try to do something together that would be awesome. And that's the show today. I'd like to thank my awesome guest star saxton and I want to remind you that there is overthrowing education swag that you can get
The Big Picture
"gina gershon" Discussed on The Big Picture
"And in retrospect, the candy coating on that movie, the editing of that movie, it's a somehow it's like an art versus commerce movie, a professional sports movie. It's like everything, but also like the best racing I think maybe has looked in a movie, but it's all green screen. It's all digital. It's wild. And the emotional core of it, I think works, and maybe that's just me coming into it as a younger brother in real life, but I think the heart of that movie works, but in a way where every time it's about to get too serious, smash cut to John Goodman making a goofy face and it just takes all the air out of the thing in a really appealing way. I love that full throated defense of Speed Racer. I'm here for it. We've never talked about Speed Racer on this show in four years. It's never come up. It is, you're not alone. That's actually become a widely accepted opinion about this movie that it was ignored wrongly when it was first released or dismissed wrongly when his first release. There are dozens of us. Dozens of us. I think putting it above bound would be pretty bold. I think bound is like legitimately in the conversation for best neo noir movie ever made. I think it features all of the kinds of stories that they want to tell in that first, you know, $6 million little mini movie that they launch with. Incredible performances from Gina gershon and Jennifer Tilly and Joe pantoliano style for days. I mean, this movie looks so good. So sexy, great, general, like, thriller aspect to it that is still entertaining to this moment. We got three movies left. We've made cases for bound and Speed Racer. Safe to say the matrix is going number one, rob, or no bid for Speed Racer at number one, right? No, no. I'm not that crazy. Amanda, I need you to be a tiebreaker on two and three. Yeah. I mean, bound is the interesting thing whereas Shawn said, it's the debut that it's like the Rosetta stone. It has the source code for everything that is coming and also it's unfair because just like genre wise and what it's more like Amanda style movie. Yeah. I really, really like rob's boldness, you know? I feel like we're not brave enough on these lists sometimes. And sometimes I try to be brave and then Sean is like, no, we have to do this instead. So I mean, this is your chance. If you say Speed Racer, it's Speed Racer. Number two. Amanda comes to down to breakfast alongside your monkey sidekick. Let's do it. Let's go. Let's do Speed Racer. Let's be original. Let's mess with the context. And be bold. Just like, I think that wachowski's would respect it. I feel okay about this. You're the rankings. Number 8 Jupiter is sending number 7 the matrix revolutions. Number 6, the matrix resurrections, number 5 cloud Atlas, number four, the matrix reloaded. Number three bound. Number two, Speed Racer..
"gina gershon" Discussed on /Film Daily
"I just wanted to mention to things that i watched recently. The first of which is movie that the first time which is called bound. Which is the first film from lily n. lawn which hausky who went on to direct the matrix movies in a bunch of other stuff. Sure people listening to this. Podcast know who they are. Especially since we've been doing a ton of matrix Matrix resurrections coverage of that new trailer. That came out this morning on slash puncture will end up talking about that. Probably tomorrow on on this podcast but Yeah so bound was Pretty small neo noir movie about Two lesbian women played by jennifer tilly. Gina gershon who tried to one of them is Is the girlfriend of a sort of a mid level mobster and they realized that a big Money transfer is about to happen where two million dollars is going to be in this apartment and it's gonna be end up. Pass up the line to different mobsters and they realize that they can try to orchestrate a heist and Basically screw over one of the the mobsters get away. Scot-free with the cash and things don't don't go quite so easily But this movie is really great. I've been hearing about for years. I remember hearing about it around the time that the matrix came out. This came out in nineteen ninety six. I think and it is streaming right now on who and paramount plus and the major Matrix resurrections coming up. I just wanted to finally died in and and seek this out so yeah it's it's a very very good movie. I was kind of one of the things that i was The most shocked or surprised to see just like how frank it is about sex and considering how most mainstream american movies are pretty The opposite of that It was it was a little. I opening in that regard. I mean there's not like a graphic movie really there's there's one sex scene but just It just that alone Seemed like a major difference than a lot of the stuff that we see in in mainstream american movies today. so yeah the performances are great. It's there are several moments that feel kinda like a task not not a test run. 'cause there's this myth that this movie was made sort of a test run for the matrix so that chelsea's could prove to warner brothers that they could handle directing a big ambitious sci-fi movie. That's not actually true. And i wrote an article at that at slash com so linked to that in the show. You know the real truth behind the story of how the matrix got made there but yet it's there are several like hallmarks. I would say that that pop up in some of their later works specifically the first matrix movie that appear in this film that i found really interesting. So if you know the matrix really well and you've never seen bound. I think you'll you'll definitely see those sort of those pieces of connective tissue there. It's really interesting. So peter we're talking right before we recorded that you have seen this movie a long time. Oh when the matrix i came. I probably many other people that thought the matrix was like super cool. And i saw the beatrix when i was in high school. Maybe i think that's probably correct You know Rushed out to the blockbuster or whatever to take down be like oh what is bound and then like very confused. It's it's definitely a full on me own war movies. There's no sifi stuff. No real action scenes to be had but is a. It's a tense little thriller. That is like really really. Well plotted and wealth orchestrates. So i'd say maybe give another shot that you you know what it is and are are going in with different expectations but Yeah it it's definitely worth watching. It holds up really well so that is bound his on hulu and paramount. Plus the only other movie that i've watched recently is called warrior from twenty eleven peter. Did you see this movie when it came out. You remember this film you. You're talking about like ultimate fighting championship moving like an imminent a movie with tom. Hardy and joel edgerton and they play brothers and nick. Nolte is like this Recovering alcoholic who plays their father now. It was very much kind of like a creed before creed right. Yeah kind of Yet it definitely has that that vibe to it. I remember putting this on my hot and movies of twenty eleven. I wrote fondly about it at the time and i have not revisited. It have not revisited. It in a while but i had the opportunity to speak with gavin o'connor who is the director of the movie sort of A ten years later retrospective interview looking back on the making this film. So i revisited recently and it is really really good. I mean it holds up super well You know some of it is like a little cheesy a little manipulative. In the way that sports movies can be but the execution is so good that it almost doesn't matter it. It feels more like a feature than a bug Because of how well everything is pulled off in income together in the end. So i just want to take this opportunity to to encourage people to seek out this movie It's streaming free on peacock right now and i think he can you know by it and rented it all the usual places. For some reason it disappears off peacock by the time. You're listening to us but man it is just really really good. It's one of those movies that i think didn't quite get its due at the time. I remember critics liking it. A lot but It's a sports movie. it's it's definitely it. Has that kind of rocky like underdog kind of vibe to it. But i really think it's one of the best sports movies ever made because in all the rocky movies. You know who. You're supposed to be rooting for instantly. And this movie does such a great job of setting up these two Sort of rival estranged brother characters and giving them both equally compelling backstories and reasons for wanting to fight other than just for glory or you know fame or whatever they have like real stakes behind the reason that they're getting in the ring and of course because they're brothers you know when you press play on this thing that they're going to end up in the ring together at some point and by the time the movie gets there..

Josh where they they had to go to the version of street football in order to kind of find themselves and get over there thinking about rocky five in rocky and tommy gun have to fight on the street also.

So i like that you mentioned the titanic.

"Try. Tell me about the book What's the title of sunshine girl. That unexpected life explained to me the title me. If you don't mind. Let me explain. So when i was born. My mother nicknamed me sunshine. I was the third daughter. And i never cried. She said i just brought sunshine into And the reason. I titled the book that was as a child. I wore that nickname as a badge of honor but because i lived such a crazy chaotic life where we were. My parents divorced. When i was a year old. When i was two we moved to france. Move to england than we back to new york. Then we moved back to england than we moved back to hampshire that. I'm about to england like it was. It was constant rowing with the name sunshine. Girl i felt like i had to make everyone feel good and not talk about my own feelings which was absolute anxiety over the constant moves And being pulled away from my father all the time my mother had a lot of boyfriends she was incredibly beautiful and it was just a revolving door of oil friends. And i felt like. I had to navigate very rocky terrain with a smile and i realized as i got older that was doing a disservice and to service in my relationships and so i talk about that in the book. I talk about this whole childhood. That i had what formed what shaped me and how i got the lying on now. In which is the subtitle unexpected life. I can't believe this is my life. I i am so that if you really do the hard work and and i talk about how we're actors so i find it so luxurious i get to discover who i am through my work. All the time and the only thing i could ever be was an actress because i was always putting on someone else's shoes or clothes i needed the american girl going to school in england. Not having the right outfit Always watching how to act what accident have and then suddenly be the girl back in new york and realize that my ashley dressed in my little sandals okay. I'm six but i get it. I need sneakers jeans and a t-shirt after change my accent. Okinawa back in england shit. I don't skirt bag it back. So i was always putting on someone else's shoes and persona and i was much more comfortable being someone else and being myself because myself never fit into where i was supposed to be so There really was nothing else. I could have done I think. I mean i i wanted to do something else. That was more noble than acting. I really thought i was going to be lawyer. Acted more out of play one on tv instead. Book is about well how did you. How did you start acting like was in high school or school before or was it after. You've finished like it was so i went to ask all. This is in the book. But i want to rough steiner's waldorf education All over the world. That was the one consistency. I did have it when i was living in paris. I went to louisiana. And then i went to the michael hall school in sussex and i went to the green meadows full in new york back to also so wherever i went to school. There was at least the same kind of curriculum in that curriculum. So both my parents. My mother's still alive but they both are answered pacifists which We're not steiner. Who created these foles Very quickly His philosophy was anthroposophy which just means the knowledge of man. Both my parents were anthroposophy stephen. They weren't together. My father do mother to and in that ideology. There is no television want. Tv in the house. I'd wrote without a television in the house. Even though my father was an man my dad wrote her shells were jails wrote club vis vis. Oh what a relief it is. He huge in the advertising world. I didn't really know. Because i never saw any of his stuff until i got college so any because of all that we always act we had to make up entertainment for ourselves so we were writing as in acting but that was like to me. That was sort of what we did for fun because we didn't have any entertainment and every school every school year. You lay Character asshole play. There was always production's going on so it was very artistic. But it wasn't what i wanted to do. My my grandmother was one of the first women to graduate from nyu law school in nineteen twenty four. And i wanted to. I wanted to follow her footsteps. I wanted to do something. Good for Pushing the female agenda forward. She was such a trailblazer. And i thought. Maybe i can do that but then when i went to college i had a very heavy academic schedule and i thought well i'll take a theater third just to alleviate some of the anxiety from this you know academic life and i got cast in a play my freshman year. I david rabe play called in the boom boom and it was a senior play but they needed underclassmen to go go dancer in the cage. I had four lines. That was it but that rehearsal process. It changed my entire view of feeling. Like i belonged because you were a bunch of people. Just they're saying words figuring out. I could cry for the character but it didn't have to be me all the things all bottled up anxiety that i had my whole life i got to let it go and the first night we performed it the lights came up and it was just one of those moments where i when i'm home. This is where i belong. There was no turning back. And once. I knew that because i felt so at home on that stage for the first time in my life in anything except maybe horseback riding because i did have a really passionate with horses. They brought me such calm. But after that i just went to every single classic. Get my hands on. Read every play. Saw every play i would i would take the train onto sarah lawrence. College is not the train but it you could get in your city and you go to. Tk yes whatever they had for standing room. It was like you could see a played standing in the back. You know i've box. And i fell in love with theater. And that's and there's no turn back for me after that and the first professional job was what my very first professional job where i got my sag card. Oh well my first professional job was regional here. I did a lot of regional here. I actually did a john base. Play in sarasota Sarasota florida but my first as screen. Job where i got my sag card. I'm so sorry. I got my equity card at yale wrap in a play called falco in her firms and after yale rap i started doing more than i had had a reputation for the you know regional theatre girl which is fine for a while but it's hard to live in those.

Yeah that's great. that's it. let me ask you a lincoln pressure portray historical figures emmy versus guy. And i'm asking other actors. You know people that character that you might create out of your you know your back your experiences or memories versus somebody that actually existed any pressure there anymore. Difficulty there. well. I mean i. I knew that bluff wade wasn't going to be a major character in this film. Res- thaddeus stevens was. But i also felt you know if i'm going to do my job. I need to find everything. I can about fluff way you know and who this guy was and it was. It's a fascinating journey. And i do think it it just feeds into any semblance possibly of authenticity at least that year. You know this about this person you know. This is that And he was in arrestable dude. And and but i do think you really. It's a you know you're you gotta give service to their memory. And what they did. And i mean you know. It's not it's not. They did a lot for this country and he just this dude portraying them. And if i you know did him in a jamaican accent something. That would be a huge disservice to bluff wade and his descendants. And you know. And i wanna i wanna say if you don't somebody real i want them to go. Thank you in the other world. You know. I appreciate that you know yet. That's that's really well said in my last question to you. Is you know. I've heard you stories about playing basketball with clooney in between shoots a in leather heads When you look back on your career and your future. We talked about that earlier super bright. You know i'm dying for season. Two of the richest gemstones. How do your memories work right. Is it off camera versus on camera. How does that play out for you wayne right because there's so many great i've heard you tell so many stories and so many funny things that you said off camera. You're on camera stuff that you're very honest about. How does that play out for you as far as how it unfolds for you and your memories the my riverside on care off camera stuff. Yeah well always like like. I just couldn't just movie wear will depend. Which is just the light. And i love it and it's on back forget one of the vod platforms now. But it's a brilliant horror. Comedy you know thriller kinda thing Starring sam richardson from veep and milania vine trump. And you know i. That's the freshest in my mind that in the gemstones and billions and stuff but looking back on the career you know on camera stuff. I immediately go to a brother because i had some huge moments matt and and you know the memories of that and and taking the leap because that day don't know how he got that audition and it's just that my first day on the set of a big movie was my big speech where they carry me out with a rail and i'm on set with every lead in the film and my first moment in that is coming in to say. Good morning to holly hunter. You know before we start. And i and she's wearing white and i have a cup of coffee and i come kneel down to her and george clooney comes barreling in next to me bumps into make and the coffee spills all over. Holly wiped out and i went. Oh my god. This is my first impression. You know whatever. But i mean those memories come flooding back because i remember going. Alright they fucking hired you then the idiots so you gotta you'll make this work and and you just jump and you leap and do it and it turned out well but i mean i remember that but then a movie like leather heads. I remember all the off cameras stuff because it was such a camaraderie with those guys you know. It was like a big almost fraternity party playing basketball going out partying at night. we're the big dealing greenville south carolina. You know and then other movies. I can't even remember off camera stuff because like prisoners was such an intense film and was only shot on shitty days. Then he did. Not if you look. If it's not sunny day. I always snowing. I feel like always snow either or overcast or radius or he got pissed off. If it was a nice day he would he would shoot interiors and say we're not shooting outside 'cause it's too nice So i i remember stuff like that in apollo thirteen. I remember pretty much behind the camera. Stuff as opposed to up because you know it was a big another big fraternity forty mission control dudes. You know having a blast with harrison all those guys you know orion ron howard. Letting you eat on camera ron howard. You know iran opened and you know seems like such a good dude he is. He's happy he's just a regular genuinely nice man I never heard him raise his voice. You know And so you know. I don't know if that has any question. The answer usually there are only a few that. I had just remarkable times off camera but i guess you know there are a few performances. That really haven't gotten any notice that i go. I really love that. But you know the movie itself But i thought that was really good performance. I you know. And i remember. That was a movie called breathless. Which was i loved my performance in it a lot But the movie in it. It's started val kilmer ray liotta. May gina gershon. Kelly goodish that and it was a horrible movie. You know all in all but my fifteen minutes. I thought him. I really like it. And that's not easy to do. You know to say. I liked that so anyway. Wayne i gotta tell you can talk to you forever.

"It is a movie about. Scientists are asteroid coming to earth. If all adam mckay on twitter you probably get that. It's a metaphor. It looks fun like anything that starts with leonardo dicaprio in like kind of weak panic attack mode. I am automatically going to be in for it. Feels like kind of the wilder scenes of wolf of wall street. We don't know much beyond that. I guess that means that this is coming this year which is good because it was kind of a question. Mark from that flex I think i've vice aside. I i like the big short a lot and so i feel like maybe be more excited for this than some people but What get you guys excited when this from this. Very brief tease. I'm like such a sucker for a montage of giant celebrities. I been sitting there in front of the camera. And i've been like calm but i did. I did. I mean. I do love that tone and it does feel like an atom mckay. I would like based on the twelve seconds that we got to see so for me. I was just like look at all those people. I wanna see act together. Yup yup and i think that this being more fanciful made up kind of thing. Hopefully it will take mckay out of the sort of cell seriousness that really bogged down Vice i think because we already knew a lot about dick cheney and it was not really that fun to have him be given the mckay treatment you know but this is like mostly made up i think right like and so the president and our grand is in i'd just like hopefully that again with similar gucci like that playfulness will hopefully kind of Levin the movie a bit I'm also was excited to see the prominent positioning of rob morgan's credit in a teaser. Because he's such a great actor and has been kind of simmering with a sort of like second act renaissance recently and so maybe this will be for him. I'm also very curious about just the whole cast. Honestly i mean matthew perry gina gershon ron perlman. Cate blanchet timothy. Shallow may mark rylance tyler. Perry like it's like a great lineup. I had forgotten a lot of people. Were in that list. Thank you for for doing the research. Okay one more trailer to get into another semi question. Mark ahead of us for the season. The trailer for king richard The by about venus and serena williams's father came out oddly timed honestly and this afternoon fata their own the same day that simone biles backed out of the olympics. Kind of you know. Partly i don't know if she cited this way you know tied to the pressure that these really high level athletes are put under so given the conversation around byles newly asaka and like the way. We're talking about mental health and pressure and sports. It's interesting time to put out a king. Richard bio-pic But i think if you know seeing will smith kind of getting into a different mode like not just doing the movie star. Charisma thing you know. The pursuit of happiness got him an oscar nomination. Thirteen years ago. or so. this feels like very much in that wold And i'm i'm curious. How much will. Smith's movie stardom becomes a draw for something like this even if it's a story of triumph for two very very famous tennis player so i'm not sure how much suspense is gonna be in the movie. But the the acting my pulled over the line yeah it feels like a will smith performance movie And i'm in for me. It's wait and see. I've talked to a lot of people who have seen it and said it's really good so i am definitely excited to see it But yeah. I think the timing was weird when you're trying to focus on the athlete and this is a story about their dad and i think they'll have some navigating do sort of the narrative for awards season but the trailer looked good and seemed like the feedback was overall really good when it came out. So i don't know we'll see yes serena and venus are both producers on the movie so they will presumably be there enforce for the promotion process for this yeah. I think it's hard. It will be hard for them to get around the reaction. That's like so these two incredible women who have achieved so much in a field that previously was like really closed off to people of color and then the movies about their dad. That could be kind of the issue in less. These young actors who are playing venus and serena as children. Maybe they're much more lead position than it looks in the trailer. I don't know. But i mean the movie become king richard but that was. They borrowed that from me. That's what i refer to myself. As i know they had to pay a lot of money to use the title. But i think said it when we had our like we did our look ahead to the urine movies episode back in the winter and like wouldn't a great like. Hey the industry's back like movie. Stars are back thing. will smith won an oscar. You know i feel like that would be good for the industry. Yeah i feel like we're always last week. We talked about jamie. Lee curtis winning an oscar. Like we're always here for the giant movie star narratives of award season which Yeah someone's gotta be. We need to to root for the big guys to come in for the oscars indiactors. Also i mean i think serena williams and venus both have at least one documentary possibly multiple documentaries. So it's possible like their story has been told and now it's time for their dad to get the spotlight. At least i think there could be more potential for surprising that because i do think vita serena's personal achievements are fairly well known in this point. Okay well on. This subject of movie stars There is a very big story involving one of them last week and one of the last few girls your hands in the highest paid actress in hollywood as of two thousand nineteen. I guess which is the last year. These numbers wouldn't be all cova crazy onto suing disney over the release of black widow. Industry itself is like. I feel like you need to be a lawyer understand. Hollywood contracts. get into like who's right and who's wrong You know we're kind of here just seeing the public version of it presumably a lot happening behind the scenes. But i think it's really interesting as as i said someone who's invested in movie stars and just like how this crazy changing streaming landscape is going to affect all of them and make it harder for people. Extra your hands in to have power hard for them to make money but also harder for them to like be relevant forces in how hollywood make decisions and it makes me feel. I guess mostly pessimistic.

Coming Out Stories
"From stand up. Comedian Kate. McCabe I was gobsmacked smarts when she told me who she chose to I come out to. I think it's interesting sometimes as a lesbian or gay person or somebody who identifies somewhere else on the sexuality spectrum. You might ask the question of. When did you know you were gay? But that's different than like. When did you feel different? Or when you felt attraction to the same sex I remember feeling like perhaps like a non sexualize way drawn to women very early on when I was like in second grade or something having having little tiny crushes on female teachers. Okay but then I think feeling probably different than other girls more around like like when I was like twelve thirteen fourteen when you actually are starting to go through puberty and you see girls gravitating towards boys trying to get their attention and flirty with them. You know when when my female friends were picking their favourite members of new kids on the block and I was scrambling to make up some random attraction to one of them to Nisa old sites. Tell us where you were growing up. Then okay I grew up in Erie. Pennsylvania which is On the Great Lakes Aches in America. Wonderful thought a great place to grow up being bit I wouldn't call Erie. Pennsylvania like a hyper progressive city. I would describe it as very Americana Traditionally more of like a blue collar type background although there were lots of white collar workers there as well you know. Detroit has the reputation of sort of like a factory city. That is maybe like a little run down. He's got a little bit of that spirit as well. They're both Great Lakes cities and it's that sort of have like a slightly depressed although there's efforts now for rebirth wall SORTA messages. Were you getting about the fact that you know you knew that you were a lesbian or you need a different. The messages were getting in the playground. or or in the place where you live. Oh deep dark ones. I grew up Catholic and I went to Catholic school so especially in the eighties nineties. You know there wasn't much progressivism in my Catholic community in Erie Pennsylvania. In fact quite the opposite you know it would have been got you could help her masturbating so you could picture picture masturbating to a female. You know is twice as bad So as far as commentary from other people I went to a Catholic girls all schools so it was interesting. It was sort of like that type of That teachers a less. You know like that sort of negativity like I bet sister so and so was a lesbian. Or I bet Mrs so and so is gay that sort of like a negative lesbians gross not necessarily directed squarely at me. I was a funny girl in a high school. Like I crack jokes. I was like class clown which I think is a classic Gay self-preservation Maneuver COMEDIANS poking funny. That is funny though. Isn't it. I never thought about it like that. But Yeah I think it's it's like a it's a type of martial art So you mentioned obviously felt Different when you were young but women's first time he's sort of realized it was a sexual things well so when I was going through puberty I had a kind of centralized dream about a woman that I knew and I told my mom pretty urgently because I was weirded out and I I must have been like twelve or thirteen well and I told I said Hey I had a dream that was like this and Blah Blah Blah and. My mom is so lovely. She just calmed me down. It was like look. You're going through puberty right now. So you're gonna I think all sorts of weird things do not bother thinking about this for another second. All kinds of bizarre thoughts are going to pop into your head. See later. I'll tell you. Yeah exactly so really I was able to sort of via like safe mode of thinking. Just think like I'm going through puberty just because I'm fantasizing about women doesn't mean I'm gay. It's just that my hormones are going bonkers and eventually they'll settle on men So that's what you told you so. Yeah that was my logic. I was because of what you've been told school and by that I mean at school. It's not like I'd been given any sort of lesson in about like sexuality and how it materializes I think mostly that little blanket of cover that had been provided by my mom and by the way not not like in a negative way. She was just trying to make me feel better and I don't think she thought I was gay. I don't legit. I don't think she thought like Oh my daughter's gay. I'm going to give her a cover. I do think she just believed leave. That this was sort of like it. Sounds like you will genuinely confused that. So Yeah Yeah. I don't think either of US knew that like that I. It wouldn't transfer over to men you know like I. I never had sex about men but that was also not a detail that I told my mom. So you carried on having they sort of fantasies and not really knowing what your sexuality was a really understanding was was. was there a sort of moment where you went. Oh hang on the dots adjoining up here. I think I might be guy. Yeah I finally admitted to myself when I was in university so I went to university in New York City which is a great Playground for a a gay kid coming out and and I really was boy. Did homosexuality need to really work hard with me. I stayed in the closet for my for America's four years of university degree. I was in the closet for three of them in New York City with a gay best friend. Yeah Oh my God. And they've got amazing clipper called the Click Club. Do you know about that. I do know that clip club and meow mix. AP meow mix. Yeah I want to show you what do I. That's it was sort of like there. I was in like the most bountiful. The whole place on earth for being a young lesbian and doing nothing about it but I finally came out The summer between my third and my final year so I I went and saw the movie bound with Gina. Gershon Jennifer Tilly. I think most lesbians are h have have watched bound SORTA fly. It should be sort of prescribed relations to something that you need to watch as part of your coming to terms. Maybe even as a test like dea thank you are watch this. If if this doesn't pull you screaming out of the closet then you're probably not see. I watched that and then it's like you know had like several fever dreams after that and then the first person I actually came out to besides myself a priest. Wow Yeah I wasn't expecting uh-huh and I went to So I I still you know growing up Catholic. I was still trying to live who I was in New York City. I didn't want to go to New York City and become like a completely different person and so I was still going to church every Sunday morning. And I'm not an idiot like I went to a church. Very progressive neighborhood. So this was not a very hellfire and brimstone brand of Catholocism. This was a nicer sort of like reformed liberal branch of Catholicism and it was a church in Chelsea which historically is a pretty gay neighborhood in New York City and I went to a confessional and you know the the priest is behind the thing and I just say I think I think I might be gay. And they call it so you of course can't see you and technically they're not really allowed to be like ghoul regardless of their own feeling. They've gotta to give sort of like what the pope prescribes as how to deal with these situations. So I had quite fearful at this point really expecting that. The priests going to tell me that like my soul needs to be cleansed in that like I need to do this. That and the other thing and that it's wrong but instead you know and I really thank God that like i. I was at this this point in my life I was in New York City. I was in a church. Chelsea aide said well okay. Well look. I'm I'm supposed to say some things and and You know I want to know. Let's talk a little bit more about this. Have you acted on your Your gay feelings and I said well no I hadn't because I you know I'm not very cool. Watch the film barrel exactly and he said okay. Well what I'm going to say to you Technically this isn't the line that I'm supposed to us but I would say in your gay relationships. Treat your partners like I would ask you to if you were straight as in like like basically I think what his advice was like. Don't go out and be a hooker. Okay like just like if you're going to you know fall in love with someone you respect them respect yourself and Cetera et cetera. And so sort of gave me like a very cautious like it's okay basically. Just be a good gay Catholic in your relationships. That's exactly what you needed to hear. Probably a one hundred percent is good as you were going to get from a Catholic price. Yeah I think and this is it. I think people's experiences rance's with religion vary greatly depending on where they are in the world. you know what is kind of coming out of the church in that in that moment in time again again I think you know geographically. I was just lucky luckier than ninety percent of my gay friends. So how did that fail. Then did you think Oh. Archie is okay to be gay. Were you still a bit sort of Still GonNA stand the closet. This is still look great with God her. Did you fill up to the what was a massive relief so someone who felt pressure from religion growing up Catholic. It was a massive relief to feel and understand that. I'm not crazy. There are people in the world even in religion that like. I don't think I'M GONNA burn in Hell for just basically living my truth and then it made me consider. Who Am I gonNA tell next?
