Bongino's Golden Rules; Conservatives Need to Break Through Cultural Ambassadors
"Liberals are people with bad ideas. Liberals don't take that of us. Liberals think we're bad people with ideas. You understand There's a difference. You remember those golden rules? That's golden rule number two Golden Rule number one. Is most Republicans are really Democrats. But no Democrats are really Republicans. You'll never be disappointed in a politician again. When you keep that golden rule in mind, That's golden rule number one, but number two liberals think we are bad people. With ideas. Why does that matter? It matters because the minute you open your mouth. It doesn't matter what you say with your idea. You are a quote, bad person. And you're to be shouted that racist, misogynist transit foam homophobic doesn't matter. Xenophobic phobia phobic for before Any word with the faux burn is that the end is you They don't hear what you're saying. You understand that they don't hear what you're saying. That matters for this next segment about culture. Politics being downstream from the culture. Because there are significant swaths of the culture right now that aren't listening to us. Supposed to say that, Dan, you got a radio show Popular Parlier Kiss Fox show great, terrific and I deeply appreciate it. And it's out there to inspire activists and good conservatives, libertarians and impressionable Democrats out there. It's out there to do that. That's the point of this talking. I'm not doing it to waste my breath. But the hard reality is a lot of these liberals and kids embedded in the culture. You may not be avid followers of politics, we can't break through to them. I don't know anything about my podcast. They didn't know anything about rush. They didn't know anything about Glenn or Sean or Marker Tucker or anything else. They've never heard it. But they do hear people like Jon Stewart. They do hear people like Bill Maher. They do hear people like these Ticktock influences out there. I can't emphasize you enough until we can grab some of these cultural ambassadors. Whether they're ambassadors for the conservative cause or not, and crack through that wall of your bad people with ideas, you conservatives, we will never be able to change the culture and therefore change the politics downstream.

Molly Hemingway Home and Jenkins John Solomon, who got the collusion hoax story right that it was a hoax instead of celebrating it liberal Michaelis a cough is more concerned about the fact that right wing media chose to have Barry Meyer despite him having written for The New York Times on their shows.

Glenn Kirschner's Top Line Thoughts on the Criminal Probe of Trump Organization
"To be joined today by my friend. Former federal prosecutor for many decades but not five decades like andrew. Giuliani claims that he's been in politics even though he's only thirty five years old and also hosted the justice matters podcasts. Justice matters youtube channel because welcome glen kirschner. Glenn welcome are you doing. I'm doing well thank you. It's been an interesting day so far in the news. I know biden just signed the anti asian hate act and hate crimes act and i think that that's a great speech that you made and we've got a lot going on and boy the investigative pressure. The legal troubles are mounting for the former guy as we learned just last night that not only is the new york attorney general tips james teaming up with Vance on the trump organization investigation making her civil suit also criminal investigation but that she has had a criminal investigation open against weisselberg. Cfo the trump organization and sent a letter letting them all know back in january. She's been doing this for months now. And i find that fascinating. And i was hoping to get your top line thoughts so top line thoughts are okay. What do we know based on this announcement by attorney general james and what can we reasonably infer. Well what we know. Is that if you're the target of an investigation and it goes from being a civil investigation to being a criminal investigation. We know that's bad for you. That's bad for donald trump. that's bad for the trump organization because civil investigations are all about money. All somebody can do to the target of a civil investigation is you know levy fines and penalties and make them pay restitution and then maybe at the most extreme they can prohibit you from running a business in the future kind of like when james shut down the trump charity and when she went after and is still going after the nra. But you know what civil doesn't land anybody in prison. Criminal can land people imprisoned. So we know that's bad for donald trump. We also know that too. Prosecutorial heads are better than one right. So tisch james has a full staff of lawyers with experience and expertise in certain areas and advance. The district attorney for manhattan has a whole battalion of lawyers with experience and expertise in certain areas. The fact that these two offices are jordan joining forces. I think spells real trouble for trump and

"Hi everybody. I'm peter travers. This is popcorn <unk>. What's happening at the movies and my guest today. is glenn. close one of the best actors on this planet. You heard it from me and you heard from everybody else. That caesar in anything you people need to get now busy on netflix. And watch glenn. In hillbilly jay where her talent is shining on its highest being. So congratulations to you. God thank you peter. Thank you very much. And i'm looking at you and when i see you and you'll be billy algae i say who the hell is that. What about this transformation that you make to play this character. Well you know. It started. When i when i knew i was going to do memo is started with. I can't be distracted by my own face. I can't you know if i think the audience sees my face. I'll be very distracted by that though. I called matthew mongol reading. Oh genius makeup artist. Special effects makeup in mossy oak own views is done my wigs for practically my entire career and they had done also janet mcteer ni- and albert and matthew came up from texas where he's kind of semi retired when i still had a house out you know in westchester and we sat in my kitchen and he experimented with with shapes because it was really amazing. How just a very slight alteration of its shape of your nose for example can take your own face away so <hes>. It was that and also mammal in life had big ears so he added you know size of my ears in my ear lobes. In the night. I curl my hair and made it all frizzy and ron came over because he just lives over the border in connecticut and he was kind of he was convinced because it i of course you know you worry about the time taken in the chair in the morning with any kind of percents but this was actually you know just slight difference of the nose and ears in it. I i was reading an hour every day <hes>. But that was the beginning. And i we were given a portrait of mammoth fabulous portrait for slightly looking up with the big glasses and her hair and that was kind of what we went on. And then eventually saw videos from the family of her inaction laughing surrounded by kids pulling a wagon and then i the thing that was most valuable for me was to have one on one with bev with lindsay with a cousin with jd. And just saying okay. How did she sit. What did she wear. How did she hold her cigarette <hes>. What was her voice like what. What was your energy like when she came into a room. What was her house like. So just very specific things not to pretend i was her but to somehow find the essence of this woman. Who is just. I mean loved feared feared and loved. When you get a property like this. I mean let's start by that. How did it come to you. He'll billy allergy. Who showed it to you. I said well. To tell you the truth. I read the book you know. Not long after came out because i wanted to educate myself kennedy. Was it her. She made the wonderful wonderful documentary about the hill. People that i remember vividly. But that was more like the shacks in the moonshine. And that's kind of the cliche and cliches are uninteresting. And i think cliche can lead to people being stigmatized and i think this group of people have been stigmatized. And then i heard that ron was had gotten the rights was developing the script and i wrote him a note and i said when you're thinking of memo please think of me thinking never in a million years would you. Because it's not like casting that you would necessarily leaked to. But then he got exciting for. You is the best thing about exciting new territory. And that's the essence of what we do right. I mean we were. We explore the human condition. And you don't want to go over territories spiritual emotional psychological that you've done before and so this was a great great journey for me to to learn about mammo to meet her family. I really believe i. It's just a fact that all great drama is based in family and you tell a very specific story about family and it has repercussions for everyone matter who they are and and that to me is the value of making it authentic and honest because then people can say they they almost subliminally will link it to their own lives. I heard that you met her son. Oh yes yes. He came settled. So what did he say when he's looking at you playing her and in a way reproducing this woman who's gone now he couldn't believe it. I mean the thing when the family and they came later when we were like a bunch of them came on on the day that i shooting the scene with little jd when he's <hes>. I've told that he has to give his p to his mother and they came onset set. We're we're on a location. And some of them started crying. They somehow whatever we found was the mammal that they remembered and her son came came in another scene and he had to leave because he got so emotional. So that was really gratifying. I think we wanted to do justice. And we wanted to in way carry on the legacy of mammal. I women all over the world who are mammals you know. Always a yankee game sat next to a grandmother and grandfather. Taking care of their ten year old grandson. And i think he'd oh my god no retirement for them. I said their daughter was unable to take care of them so they were raising their grandson and it happens a lot in this country that know. We see every time we turn around to do that. And i say from the specific comes the universal to do that. But i think it's going to have an effect watching this movie now because all of us many of us even if we're lucky enough to live in some kind of bubble where we have. Some family members with us isn't going to be a thanksgiving where we can all get together in large kind of group. it's just impossible with this pandemic. How are you living with. Pandemic there in montana. We'll see interesting. Because i've not achieved as much creatively as i wanted. I wanted to really really right. Haven't and i'm not sure why not be. I think it's brought a kind of sometimes. I feel like. I'm spinning my tires. You know in in the mud and not getting a traction. And but i make sure my sink is clean all the time. My kitchen isn't border. You know i make i will. Do i think that every day going. After the i kind of the little things to keep my life in order that have been important but he things are building. I think i would like to think that a great great era of creativity for for all of us who are in the are artists will come out of this. Whether is you know something's just stating whether you're aware of it or not. But it's there it's going to happen

"Although I didn't know anything about it. But I hadn't heard anything about it. Nobody was talking about it as a movie called the wife, and I knew that Glenn Close was in big fan of Glenn Close. And so we popped it in because my mom wanted to see it and I loved it. I loved the wife it is. It's the kind of movie that I really am a ringer for which is it could be a play. It's really very much of just a few locations. Lot of talking just. Beautiful incredible performances. It. It's about the life of these sort of older people one of whom is getting the the Nobel prize in literature. And so then tire movie is about receiving the Nobel prize, which is a topic. I've never seen dramatize before. I just found that whole process fascinating. Because it's something I'd heard about many times, but I've never seen anyone dramatized that sequence of events as that was pretty RAD. And then it also includes flashbacks to earlier in their life, and his it kind of fleshes out this relationship between these two sort of older people later in their life in that you get a really interesting vision into their marriage and their working relationship. It's I I found it fascinating. Beautiful. It made me think it was. I just I loved it. I thought the white. Was fantastic. All right. Well, Glenn Close had one of the most memorable. Reactions at the Golden Globes is here to winning her Golden Globe for the wife to go. See it. She kind of she kind of freaked out because she had no sense that she was going to win. Right. Like, she just didn't even conceive. I think as she was not the favorite from the like, literally, right? She's not part of the film the favorite. She also favorite was the favourite. Right. She she didn't have odds to win and then kind of clinched it. So I've heard great things about her performance. And Jeff, you agree that she's awesome. She's awesome. In johnston. Price is also awesome in it's really a very much a two hander and their dynamic is. So fascinating. You never see a relationship this nuanced, and there's a sort of a hook that comes in kinda late in the game. That is a little gimmicky and interesting, but it doesn't. It ruin or it doesn't even I think bastardize or influence what is really just as beautiful relationship between two people that is full of contradictions. It's it's a relationship of love and of of lifelong devotion. But also a relationship that's had hardships, and is full of anger and resentment and all of the things that, you know, forty fifty year marriage is going to have. And I just thought them dramatizing that and putting that fully fleshed out kind of dynamic on screen was so extrordinary and her performance speaking of Glenn closest performance her performance. I think the reason it is so amazing. I mean, you have this actress Glenn Close who is, you know, she's famous for fatal attraction and. What was the the one just recently the TV show? She did what she was the damage power damages. These extraordinarily powerful, we kid vicious women in certain ways, or or just smart whip smart, and and outspoken, and she's she is Glenn Close is very much this force on screen and has played roles. Like that many many times here, she is constantly describing herself as demure and not wanting the spotlight and wanting to stay in the background and she steps into those shoes so beautifully. It is an extraordinary take from her on being soft-spoken understated and just very different than I've ever seen her before. And I think that may be why she's getting so much attention for it. It's very much. A different kind of role for her. But once she pulls off just beautifully. Well, it's great to hear. I hope to check it out at some point the movies, the wife, and how you sell on screener. Right. You saw it on a on a screen, but I think it's still in limited release right now. So that's the wife anything else watching Jeff. Well, I also ended up by accident. Watching a movie on Hulu think it's a Hulu original documentary about the Dana Carvey show. The short lived Dana Carvey show from the early mid nineties. That who put together. And I was we were watching something on Hulu. I don't even remember what it was and my wife Phyllis leap on the on the couch..

"He's so amazing and such a legend in the UK. But I just don't think that that there's that much recognition here. Now, I mean, academy members presumably know who he is. But like, I think they have they just have more work to do. And then I guess, Richard. I'm curious what you think, you know, does there ever come into to it that whole controversy around a straight actor playing a gay character? Like does that if he does get far enough along does that come into play and become an obstacle for him? I wish that the conversation. Was that far ahead? No. I don't think that really if you know if it's not slowing Rummy Malik, Dan. I don't think you know, you said sneak in there like Glenn Close, Mike. I think that the Richard E grant thing it's like that's a sneak in there. Like, Mark right lands. You know, who to didn't win the globe. And then won the Oscar over was like where the hell dot com from Graham. Did he was up against the lesser Stallone for creed? And. I wanna talk to school, but the kind of conventional thinking for those who pay attention to the industry is that semester stolen is not very well liked in the industry. And so a group of eighty plus foreign journalists say, okay, great here, you go sly, but the academy which is very different body of people. They say, no, no, absolutely not. We don't all know who this British guy is. But he's in that student spillover movie. He's great in it. He's weird. Some of maybe some of the east coast or Simon theater, they're like, okay? You know, I don't know that Richard E grant necessarily has that same profile supporting him, but he has been around a long time. And he's worked with a help wanted people. And I'm going to say one last thing, which is that they need to get with Millon ion goddamn streaming platform. So that all these academy members can watch it Mike, and I keep saying this until this is over I will say this last week. And I watched I watched Gosford Park, which is one of my all time favorites. And that's got a classic Richard E grant performance in it. So you know, check that out. That's that's available on streaming. Okay. Best actress, we've already talked about this a bit Glenn Close, obviously had a huge night last night Libya. Coleman also had a great night, Lydia, not so much. So where where this is all land for you guys in the Coleman gogga close spectrum starting with my Cogan. I think that that was really bad for Gaga. She should she should win the Golden Globe. I think right. That's that's part of the narrative of of somebody like her pop singer coming into this race. And the fact that she didn't I think is rough. I think a lot of us were surprised when stars bar went into the drama category versus the musical comedy. And like I feel fairly confident even though Olivia Colman is a strong contender. The Gaga would have won. If that if a star is born had been categorized properly. You know what I mean? So to put her up again in the drama category. Maybe felt like a bridge too far. I don't know to me live Coleman was in a stronger position than Glenn Close going into this. So actually, you know. Reminder to everyone. What what do we know? But yeah, it felt especially because of the quality of the speech. It just felt that Glenn Close like blasted into the the, you know, top two contention. And it's it now feels more like a it'll be a head to head between Libya Coleman and Glenn Close. But you know, who knows I wouldn't count Gaga out. But I think that there is this kind of underscores some of the issues that I think Gaga has which is you're always in this position. If you're not really an actor or not longtime professional actor of people sort of resenting you coming in. And you know, they want to find out like, what's your what's your angle here? You know, do you actually care about acting or is this just a stunt for you? And I feel like all that baggage. You know, did not get helped last night. Yeah. And also like she she fell into the same crevasse that the Cougars fallen into which is like now, they don't have the speech now. No one they haven't they haven't gotten unstaged or and that's both..

"I don't know if that's like the usual schedule you Mike, and I talked last week about how the schedules a little wonky this year. But I don't know if it's usually like the day after so you've got all these narratives, if you're an Oscar voter fresh off the Globes in your mind, and I think what the Globes can do is cement, certain narratives. And then like I feel more confident ever say that Spiderman into the verse has a real shot at at like upsetting the Disney machine and winning best animated feature. That's a narrative that feels like more cemented to me. There are other narratives that feel cemented. But I think you're right that in terms of best picture for me. It really tells me so little except for to go back to what Mike was just talking about. I think there has been this like. Presumption that a star is born was going to sweep in a lot of categories for a long time that perhaps some of the people involved in the production. Like, some the Murray's that we've been hearing from Hollywood is is maybe the the awards machine irritated that certain people won't play certain games when it comes. And maybe the presumption of winning those categories meant certain people didn't wanna play those games. And maybe less night was sort of a rebuke of that of like, okay, if you won't play are silly award season games than maybe you're not gonna win all the categories. You think you're going to win? I'm very happy to see lady Gago when a globe for best song. I'm very happy. If she wins an Oscar for best song. But in the other caddies, they'll be curious to see if the strategy for a star is born changes after what we saw the Globes last night. Well, yeah, it's funny because I think that as much as Glenn Close winning was an ascendancy. I think that Bradley Cooper saw a major. Loss last night in in in not winning for best actor, you know, comedy musical actor went to Christian bale, and then Rummy Malik won for best actor drama and just kind of looking correct me listeners if I'm wrong on this. But it looks like the last time that a best actor Oscar winner didn't win either the comedy or drama globe was ten years ago when Sean Penn one for milk because there was that whole year of him. And Mickey Rourke kind of Duke it out Mickey work won the Golden Globe. And it's happened a few times in the two thousands where no one expected injury and Brody he came along Russell Crowe winning for gladiator. You know? So I it's a rather for for people. Anyway, it happened a few times, but it's pretty rare. And so rather Cooper not witting last night. Despite the fact that we could say, oh, well, you know, the the categories are divided. You can't really predict the acting prizes. You know, there is precedent for that. So I think that he should be worried if he cares the acting directing category. I mean, I know funds. Onto quarter on was if not the favourite that at least sort of toe-to-toe with Cooper. But the fact that he walked away with like three chances at globe and zero returns, it's not good. It was a bad night for stars porn for. Sure. What is Bradley Cooper working on? Now is he like making another movie he is a Leonard Bernstein bio pic that's been announced. He's got some trapped behind the enemy lines movie that I guess is in pre production. I don't know why he doesn't have at least a little bit of a beard and is not wearing like a cool like rock. Why is he wearing a white suit? But Mike, I don't think that the beard and the hat and this and the disheveled MRs actually him, you know, what that was acting. I know it's not what since we're all playing parts right now to try to win Oscars. You know, like like, but I guess forget it, I'm yeah. I mean, I guess I guess lady Gaga the diligently Dider hair crazy color, like just like Allie. You know? But like Bradley Cooper's at Georgetown. Boy, you know, he's I think a lot closer to the sort of Maryland. Do that you saw in wedding crashers all those years ago. I mean, not not that. But not a jerk like that. But you know, I think he's a little bit more clean cut. And so maybe he was just allergic to like be in Jackson main for another few months..

"We would like to have some really stirring moving speeches, you know, whether they're thinking about it consciously or not that's clearly part of what's going on. And I think the canny winners. No that and of everybody who won Glenn Close was locked and loaded, and she came out there with like, you know, crying, the mascara fabulously, you know, breaking down on a around her is like like giving this perfectly proportioned structured speech that was you know, made you want to see her Oscar speech one hundred percent, whereas some of the other folks, I mean lady Gaga, I really missed her chance with best song because she I think assumed she was going to win best actress, she let Mark Ronson talk the whole time and ended up like inter inter interrupting him that was a weird speech. Peter Farrelly's speech was like, you know, exactly what you don't want to do in terms of accepting for green book, where he kind of loosely thanked a million people and didn't get around to his speech that he had prepared until the music was starting Glenn Close was like, you know, that thing was perfectly structured and crafted to make people think let's give her the Oscar, whereas an Olympic Coleman came out and was charming. And cool and her quirky south. But like Glenn was was not playing. Here's what I'll say about. That is joining you, you, you know, you were getting yourself for asking where you know, where to this narrative come from. I was kind of doing the same thing. I was like you're nuts. I don't think she saved me going to get nominated Glenn Close. And look she's still might not Oscar nominations aren't out yet. But when I watched that speech last night, especially after an evening of a lot of like kind of decisions other elsewhere. I was like, oh, wait I kind of want her to win like I had sort of forgotten that in the kind of excitement of Gaga who analytic Coleman and whoever else, and I was like, oh, it would be great for Glenn Close to win an Oscar. It's been long overdue. She has Mike what you're talking about. Which is I think her reaction was very genuine, but she very quickly mustard herself together and gave a very controlled Norma, Desmond speech. You know, she she really like she like knows how to do that. She is from an old school of of actors who like has that flair that is both. Accessible and open. But very, you know, it's it's high it's high drama. It's you know, she wasn't very like natural. I guess let's also not forget that whereas stars born I think is showing the strain of having to deal with some pretty eccentric people who don't necessarily want to play the Oscar game Glenn Close has Sony Pictures classics behind her right? Tom Bernard and Michael Barker, and they don't have that many horses in the race this year. So you can bet the Tom Bernard. Michael Barker are doing everything possible to make sure that every voter is very aware of Glenn Close of her. You know narrative why this is the year for her making sure they see that movie making sure they understand that you know, like all the reasons why this is so so in terms of the question of why would we talking about going close a it's a fantastic performance. Be like, you know, the these people they're not screwing around either like like. These are professionals who really know what they're doing. So she has a great benefit in that way. The fascinating thing to me about like whether or not the Golden Globes impacts what comes next nominations for the officers start to day..

"I feel like that might work with with the Hollywood Foreign Press, but I feel like the controversies and they're not small they're not like ginned up controversies leg. I would say the stuff that we heard around Selma or stuff like that. Like, these are genuine concerns around these two movies. I don't think they'll survive the Oscar voting process like I'm feel very confident about I think there's a faction in the academy. That would also be receptive to that kind of thinking. But I think that the look the the main thing about both of these movies is that they're artifice surely not artificially, well pretty artificially this year. But they're separated into two best picture groupings that kind of ended up being so weird with the musicals in the drama thing and the comedies like everything was in the wrong place. And so the movies we've been talking about all year as being most likely to win. Best picture are like stars. Born Roma wasn't even allowed to be in either category stars born was in the totally wrong category. Perhaps arguably, and you know, so I don't know. I think it's I think that this probably is like a one night only, you know, sort of hilarious. Bizarre travesty. But what I don't know. What do you guys think? Well, this is always the kind of tricky game with the Golden Globes is you know, we can say at one side of our mouth. Well, they don't really mean anything because it's just the eighty people who have have any people deciding this. So we shouldn't actually looked at it to predict the Oscars and yet from the other side of her mouth burly. But yeah, kind of can in some ways, and I, but I don't think I think this is a weird year where the best picture winners. Probably don't. Actually have a shot of repeating at the Oscars. But again, what do we know? I think the most interesting thing of the evening for, you know, future awards. Prediction was Glenn Close witting in the best actress drama because not only did she come out of a movie that we've got a small release in the summer that had premiered of one film festival a year prior like that was a hard mountain to climb, but she got good reviews for it. But she also gave this really great speech that kind of gathered some of the larger social issue surrounding the orchard together in a nice, rousing concise way. And to me, I feel like she won the Oscar based on that speech. Well, yeah. Okay. Two things ever one. I want you out you both to know. And all of our listeners now that as soon as she won immediately. I heard my own words and little Goldman like a month ago. Whatever thrown back at me where I'm like where are you? Getting this Glenn Close narrative, it's crazy. It has nothing to do. Do with reality. And then I was like oh God to talk about this on the podcast of. But this is so good. And I'm wondering do you feel comfortable sharing some of your unified theories on speech giving at the Golden Globes with with our listener? So to Richards earlier point, I think that the Globes are not super predictive for best picture, although they obviously kind of indicate momentum. And I think the anxiety of voters that they don't want to be wrong is always you have to think about that. When you're watching like if this group of voters give somebody in a ward, another group of voters is going to think maybe we should take that more seriously than we did before. So that's helpful. I guess to rhapsody and certainly green book. But where it's really predictive is that it's an audition. I think for actors and the academy voters are watching thinking we want to have a great show..

"So things like that really made me love that character. So that's who I was playing one as a result of coming to feel protective of this Carter. And I guess you've said you have to kind of see things through their perspective in order to play them offensively. But in this case it was because you come to feel protective of her in a sense that you were fairly pissed off when they wanted to change the ending. How did that all come about? I couldn't believe it. I thought they were joking. 'cause this is six months after. Yeah, six months. Luckily I hadn't cut my hair. I think Stanley Jaffe called me up and said they were going to change the ending because intesting it, the audiences were so upset. Set by Alex is behavior that having her kill herself wasn't enough of a punishment because she was France. She had sort of chief, yeah, and well, she didn't know that she killed herself in his fingerprints around the knife. So he was sent to jail and people don't want beautiful and to be left and Michael to go to jail. So they. What? What do they want from you? Well, there is kind of nothing was on the page. I didn't have anything to read and I, I, I refused for two weeks. I refused. I said, I won't do it. She's not a psychopath. She's somebody, you know, who needs help, and it was pretty tense. It was pretty tense, and I remember I called up. I actually called a Bill hurt. I don't know. I call them fail, but I said, this is happening, and I feel like I'm totally betraying the essence of this character. What shall I do what he said? Well, you've made your point. You've made your point and if they, you know, if you want the movie to be released me, you gotta go along on it. So I did under great duress. How it all turned out. I honestly think that it would not have been the hit that it was without that new ending because I mean, the lesson I learned from that is okay. So the audience wants to think that everything will be okay in the end in they've grown to love and Archer in that adorable little girl. Most of all, I mean Michael, but that's all about catharsis and catharsis is when something happens to that, there's a possibility that order can be restored and in Greeks and Shakespeare, it's bloodshed. So they shed my blood. Well, this shed my blood and the audience felt better and they believe different audience got a big kick out of it. When you know several months later, a very pregnant, Glenn Close shows up with Michael Douglas to present at the Oscars. And I think they figured out a different ending in there. Funny thing again, I was really pregnant. I was eight months pregnant, Michael, and I walked out to give an award and they all started laughing. Of course, she was right. She was right. She was pregnant. So I want to come back to the character. You reference from dangerous liaisons which was a year after that because you've said that there's a scene in there that you have with John Malkovich. That's one of the senior proudest of in in your career. I think where you talk about how your character essentially invented herself. Right? Right. What was it about that moment that you know out of. You say that? Yeah, gosh, that's such a brilliant script that they're a lot of moments in that film. I actually, that's actually that you would bring up that that same because we had tried to film that sane, and I had given birth to my daughter. Annie.
