"Well no I you know it's interesting Meryl Streep said this and I've quoted it because it's really smart because she's actually one of the smartest people I've met not not just period. She's she's just so smart but she said them she said that The one of the reasons that there were so many great characters for women at that time. mm-hmm was that There is no real danger that she's going to take his job so if she's not going to take his job she can. She can be as outrageous and say whatever she wants because we're not worried that she's got any of that money away and as soon as it becomes an issue shoe later than female characters change And I was like. Why are you that smart? I know it is it is it's great and and I and I think it it gets something very true and there's this great monologue in the film by Amy March which she talks about kind of the tough choices and sacrifices that women have to make and read that that was directly inspired by your conversation with Merrill. Just another thing I still from. Yes no no this. A scene where Amy March describes really the stakes of marriage for her that that that would came directly out of a conversation precision with Merrill who who said this is what you have to make the audience understand and And also for me because of the character of amy who I loved it gave amy context that she didn't have before and I think amy has been a a misunderstood understood character and I felt that in some ways I wanted her to get some real estate as an adult woman to explain. Why why she thinks Sushi things before we go? I have to also say congratulations. To your Hubby Noah Baumbach. He's nominated for best original screenplay.

"Or maybe they're all improv maybe Kennedy's can't help. That's I like that option. I hope it's like that. Whatever the case, I love this matrix while because it does manage to encapsulate, all three of those phases that I talked about in one single word. You've got the comedy. It's very funny. You've got the action context around it. And there's all of these philosophical implications that we dug into when we did our matrix review earlier in this year. Looking back at it all those ideas, all those thoughts that make you, he's echoing exactly what your brain is doing throughout this movie. Sometimes all that needs to capture all that is a single while now say that this is the definitive Reeves moment is not an insult. It's not even a backhanded compliment. It's genuinely the most impressive example of the still. Minimalism that makes him it makes him pretty great for sure. Makes a totally unique screen presence. Absolutely can't argue with that a bit. I'm so glad the wo- got its do I'm going with the matrix as well. Probably not a shocker for my number one Keanu Reeves moment. And my last reading here from Anjelica goes like this. The sub head is transfixed ING stillness like glorious. Swanson, Greta Garbo in the greatest of silent actress Kieu is immense screen presence and keen understanding of communicating story through physicality, albeit with very modern inflection a simple glance or curled lip can unfurl Linke character history or a bend expectations. But this image of odd blink nece affability, but dimwit worth only found in action films ignores, how purely cinematic his acting style is for Keanu acting isn't a mode of transformation, but a state of being he transmute story into flesh. I've read most of Anjelica peace over the course of this top five but there's. Lot more to glean from it. And if you're curious, we will linked to it in the show notes for this episode over at film spotting dot net. But when I think about Kiana communicating story communicating character through physicality and gestures, I immediately go to what is my single favorite moment in the matrix..

Can You Ever Forgive Lee Israel?
"I came across this letter in a collection with the signature of one of my favorites, the writer and wit, Dorothy Parker and the letter is so her eighty three Norma place Hollywood, California, the Joshua Allen told me to write an apologize. I'm doing that. Now while he dresses for Turkey dinner with the boys across the road. I have a hangover that as a real museum piece. I'm sure that I must have said something terrible the year this kind of exertion in the future. I'm thinking of having little letters runoff saying can you ever forgive me? Dr. Except that Dorothy Parker didn't actually write or sign that letter Lee Israel, did her book called can you ever? Forgive me tells the story of her years as a literary con-artist forging letters by all sorts of famous writers, then selling the memoir was just Apted into terrific new film, also called can you ever forgive me. It stars Melissa McCarthy as Israel. This. One line. Here was particularly clever. Don't you think it's wonderful. I love his writing and Dorothy Parker's while caustic wit. Caustic wit is my religion. With the film. Now in theaters I wanted to revisit my conversation with the real Li Israel. She died in two thousand fourteen but I talked to her when her memoir came out in two thousand eight so that isn't by Dorothy Parker at all. Well, there's one line the best line. Can you guess which it is? That's really Dorothy this have hangover that as a real museum piece. So the title of your book is from this purported letter by Dorothy Parker, but it's a real realign. Yes, I imagine Dorothy apologizing her waif-like way for some misdeed, and and I sat down, and I wrote it's in the spirit of kind of Judah spree. So how did you get the idea for this this racket of forging famous people's letters and selling them to dealers started? It was incremental as most things are in life. I I was in the library where I spent most of my time foraging, and they gave me a group. Of of letters. And I thought perhaps even one or two of those could pay for from Mike my kitties tests, and I shoot it. I took it a walked out of the library. And I sold it. I was told by the the woman who bought my letters that which I didn't know anything about the business, but she would pay more for better content. So I went home, and I typed up some better content. And then when you started forging after that instead of stealing what was the first thing before actually, I don't remember where I started. I have a feeling let me think I know it wasn't. I think of the first things I fought would know account letters and you bought not just one but a whole series of antique typewriters on which to do. We'll finally if I had knoll type on one typewriter Dorothy on another and and EDNA Ferber on yet another and Finally I had about six or seven of them in locker I rented on Amsterdam have Aminu looked like a very classy porn shop, but his pawnshop not a porn shop. Not a foreign chef. And it's amazing. How little regulation there is. I mean, for instance, the Noel coward letters, some of them were published in an anthology of his correspondent. That's right recently in highly regarded, well, reviewed book, cool, the letters of no coward. And they were two of my lettuce showed up in that volume. Can we hear one of your letters? Okay. Gotta find it. All right. I'll just this. Dear Kevin Sunday. And at the the letterhead as lays of all sumo shoes. Pardon my French, dear Kevin, I who doesn't exist. I am feeling years younger having lose this morning over perfectly packed snow. There is no substitute for oxygen in the lungs. It seems to release something very like morphine Marlene Marlene as perhaps mentioned to you. When we spoke was here for almost two week. She will never change in Detroit a four service folly, she moans endlessly about the ravages of aging the betrayal of friends the lonely. Of celebrity the Silio crowd addresses each of these problems, if she were the only beautiful and celebrated creature to experience reversals, I intend to have her in my life until one of us crooks, but she is possibly the most June grandmother in the history of our planet. It's a very good thing that I love her. I laughed uproariously at show dog dog arrow yours ever know flea. Israel's version of no account, and they were among the best letters. I think of his well what you don't I'll tell you why? Because he Kurt guess he didn't have to be knoll coward. When he wrote letters. He was writing letters. I had to try hard. I had to be no coward. And so they were lay will cavorted they camped they jumped high jet Jade around. I mean, he didn't write letters like that. I was I was doing it to please dealers and to do an imitation of disturbed sick man who didn't have to try to be no coward. How did you? Did you have to try to get into character? How much did? Immerse yourself in their work. Did you put on a hat like they were support yourself drink? What did you do? I'd never put myself drink because who was it who said John Cheever that old womanising alcoholic said even Sipa Sherry shows in his prose. So I never I never drank. When I ride I just I immersed myself in that wonderful thing that happens grade of people kind of trance the creative transits it's as good as it gets. We'll have more of my interview with Lee Israel in just a minute. But first I wanted to take this opportunity to remind you to follow us on Twitter and Instagram at studio three sixty show. And now back to the podcast now, let's let's rewind before you ever got into this. You were of successful bog refer when I was in my early thirties. I wrote a book about Dorothy Kilgallen, I wrote a book about to Lula Bankhead. I did finally book that wasn't so good about Estee Lauder after the Lord of book, my lights dimmed a bit, and they stopped taking me to Lynch, and and you were on welfare. And and it was it was really rough. It wasn't. It wasn't just that. You were no longer a bestseller. What is rough? I mean, I wasn't eating roots and Niger, but in terms of my life. It was bad. It was I was alone. She was alone. And you and you had a sick cat as well. I had. Sick the romance of the whole thing, and how much did you get for that those? I I think the forty dollars a piece something like that. So it wasn't a lot of money per letter. Forty bucks, forty bucks. Allowed me to take my cat to the vet and find out baby. What was wrong with her? It was enough to keep me as I say finally in in lunch and cigarettes and rent. It was not a lot of money in terms of the letters you forge a part from the marketability of a given author or figure how how did you choose who you wanted to do? I've been thinking about that. I I know that I have certain hide certain criteria which had to be bet they the signature mostly had to be doable, easy, so EDNA, for instance, EDNA Ferber or some EDNA Ferber. She signed her letters with a period. Very simple writing. No, no loops. No swirls. No, no were jumps. Same thing. Knowles was a little harder. Dorothy, Parker had an easy signature. They had to present a challenge to me. They had to have literary epistolary styles that I thought I could duplicate and have fun doing. And I guess those are the criteria fun is interesting to me because they are also nearly all sort of swan. You naughty, people of a certain period and certain certain habits with alcohol and certain age, which meant that if I shook a little in the signature, it wouldn't tell so much, but they would all you. No, one would want to go to the cocktail party with all most of these people all of them, maybe EDNA Ferber. I was gonna say. How many letters did you right now? I think about four hundred really, yeah. You can see you can see as we sit. There's a loosely with copies basically two or three a week for the three years something like that. I guess I didn't you do the math. I did. I did whatever I needed to do them. There was one deal in New Hampshire who would call and say, do you have something Greta Garbo will have you something which George q-car is mentioned. Now, I always satisfied is demands that what did he think I mean, really? And where would you say? Yeah. Maybe I do I have a feeling maybe they may be in the country. You know, like I had a country home. I'll check and I o. I always I wasn't. I not even smart enough to say, oh, no. I couldn't I always was eighty ninety one hundred dollars. Ed was the Noel coward letters that finally done me in because I overdid and because one of the one of his friends who was in the market to buy Noel coward. That is was shown some of mine in new. Full. Well, that know having lived at a time when homosexuality was jailing offense never would've put so many campy funny allusions in his letters and the stuff that's homoerotic etcetera. I got from his his diaries, but Noah would have been much too careful to disclose his. I did what happened. Finally is that one. Once the man friend of Knowles discerned that there was something rotten in Denmark. He told the dealer who told other dealers and finally the well was toxic, and I could no longer sale. And then as soon as the the federal agents showed themselves didn't arrest you mmediately. You went off trying to thinking we're going to get rid of the typewriters destroy the guy rid of everything I could get my hands on scissored everything. I I took the typewriters from the locker one by one and they were very heavy. You know, we're talking nineteen forties. Nineteen fifties at I place them up and down various trash receptacles on Amsterdam avenue. So you were you were. Finally nabbed prosecuted went to trial. You got off pretty easy. I did. Well, I had I got six months house arrest, which is not so easy. If you saw my apartment at the time, not only did you not go to jail. You you have this lovely book. That's come out. That is getting good reviews and kind of kind attention, nobody that I've seen seems to be saying how dare this thief and forger getaway with this. I know, and I'm really, but I I have a knowledge that what I did was was wrong. But I don't I don't feel that in the pit of my stomach the bloggers not being so so kind blinders do, yeah, I know one of them called twit, and I hope he spelled it right? Somebody else called me, an intellectual terrorist. I beat so that happens, but mostly the the community of writers and not so much scholars of writers. And peers of of a liking it and are being very kind to me non-judgmental. I know what I did was for honest, Ana.

"It is good. All right. Good. And we just don't want it to we just don't like guy attacks Syria. I guess it's like western cinema came out of that era of like Nickelodeon watching just a guy riding horse, and then they made like Charlie Chaplin and very quickly became a studio system of like the studios on everything. And I just think it's interesting when other cultures got the same technology because it's a federal to anybody. But they were just like no give it to directors. Let's make this really progressive because our societies super fucked up right now, let's make like progressive cinema. Even when it doesn't even have sound. Let's reflect modern day society. And that was like this whole wave apparently was like. What do you call it? A it's like Neo realism? Okay. I've heard this just like showing, you know, exactly. What's happening? You're not trying to make it any fancier than it is. Yeah, this is just it's actually what someone's going through in this modern day. Right. But in their case to things that no one wants to talk about. Yeah. Yeah. A lot of time. Great. So wait what happened? I mean. What what led to her suicide, you know, specifics of it, basically? Okay. So she comes out with this film about someone who is harassed by the press k the foam comes out. She's currently dealing with harassment from her excess. Yeah. In the press in the press, it's the exact same thing. Really? She's dealing. They're like saying that this shit about her like sleeping with people. And stuff like that. Meanwhile, making films that are cutting edge that are kind of like an indecent one. But they're edgy believe it kinda some of them. Okay. It's actually oh my God. What a nightmare. It's not good. Yeah. Kind of like public dragging is been going on since the beginning of time and people can't handle it, the human brain cannot and all that level of pressure. When I looked into this one. I mean, like something that had to differentiate it from others was like she didn't seem to really suffer from clinical depression in the same way. This is more like since the age of sixteen to twenty four. She was being continually harassed. She like. Yeah, head. Yeah. She was an incredible artist. Put like the circumstances were just like fucking inexcusable. You know? So I mean like, right. That's that's the person with like, probably the most extreme complex PTSD could possibly have it took a while too. Because like I'd read articles or read, you know, things about it. And it was almost like people write about it at some points. Like, well, she did a movie about someone committing suicide. So she committed suicide like give me a fucking. Exactly. And it's like, and it took me because I wanted to look into. I was like, and I know people didn't write about depression at the time. Say real quick. How fucking crazy that is. Just like, yeah, he made a movie about basketball. So now, he's in the NBA like shut up. What are you talking about? That's why air bud isn't. She of the Lakers. Totally. Man. You know, Brad bird is a toy. Now. No socks as I said. There was a huge outpouring. When she committed suicide of just like it was this revolution. It was this oddly like shifting time. In was them confronting societal norms. That were kind of starting to become reprehensible, it's like you can't just rape women. Like, it was literally like that sort of shit..
"greta garbo" Discussed on Suicide Buddies
"Wow. Yeah. I was also amazed that just at first at the fact that like this woman had committed suicide they made a movie about her life within about a year, and this actress who portrayed her and killed herself within that year. Like cinema was when you watch the ring. I'm so very reductive. Sorry. I'm so sorry. Yeah. No. I kind of am. So by the way, I just bumped the mic on my chin. I'm so fascinated with this era in in cinema because it feels like almost like modern for one this incredibly like feminists era and also just like the technology that was like happening at the time to make cinema happen. I think was incredible to people think it really was like VR technology. Sure. If I have to imagine if people were paying five cents to go watch, Nickelodeon and just go watch a man ride a horse for like a second. Yes. That must have been mind blowing absolutely a nickel at that. Time. Must have been like fifteen bucks. Yeah. I wanna go step in the chamber once the guy. Right. The horse. I don't give. Yeah. Right. Right. And that's kind of where VR's at now feel like it's the same thing as when cinema was beginning these movies. Aren't good right stupid guy riding horse. And now if you go play VR or you go watch VR thing, you're like this is awful nothing year. We're going to get a message tomorrow from so when he was like actually guy riding horses, really good..

"The kinda shit that people are talking about with Orson Welles when he makes citizen Kane in the suspect thing about lighting and sound, and you know, like people in the background, and you're seeing things that you shouldn't see, you know, like, you know, layering in context this shit is already existing in like China-Japan China's van they're really at the forefront because they are the system that is like director lead. Right. And I listened to a lot of interviews with the directors and their big thing is like I just let the actors go we do rehearsals. And as I'm watching the rehearsal 's that's when I pick out the camera angles. I let them figure out the scene, then I do the thing why this is all so different from like silent film where they're like they're shut up. Fuck gun. That cigarette in your mouth. Wow. I didn't realize it was like that. That's. So so she gets in a new relationship with a guy who is also a piece of shit. God damn. Yeah. There's no good guys right around the time. But within about two years of her getting into acting. She becomes one of the biggest stars. Right. Like, everyone loves or. Yeah. You know? And at the height of her fame, and she's being still harassed by her acts as she's with her new guy, basically God. Yeah. Yeah. It's it's both or just piling on. Yeah. She makes this film called new women, and she portrays an author, and I believe she was an actress too. Yeah. Who died the year before by suicide this this person had committed suicide do press like hounding in media kind of costly being like, right? What your husband's as he's leaving you like just like, yes. That said that's the movie she made she wanted to make a movie about someone going through the same situation. Do think that you keep saying she wanted to she wanted to she wanted which is which is not the relationship to movies that I know Andrew Sav. It's like you take what you can get time or you like you get pitched thing by director. And then you're like, oh that sounds great. I choose to do that. But still like. Way you're talking about her. She made her own calls is what I think. So and a lot of ways. Yeah. Because it sounds like she was doing this out of a form of rebellion in the sense. Okay. She found out early on that she was successful. And she was the breadwinner right immediately. Has been dwindling all the fortunes, and then she became the person that he would prey upon and be like, well, pay me money. And I won't I won't tell her rumors about you. Yeah. So yes, she made this honestly, what's also interesting as her first film would she was sixteen. So this trauma cars for. A movie sorry. She had just had this trauma with her hus- her her new husband, teen, whatever you wanna call that relationship, and the one of the first film, she makes is about like a marriage that's super fucking awful. And like, you know, what I mean like, so she's dealing with this interpersonal life, and then all of the film says she's being praised for our about women who are like prostitutes people who are being like abused. She she also had kind of a huge range like one point she played like a starlet, and like like, really, you know, proud people. But I think if you're dealing with these horrible traumas, and then you have to play an abused wife and stuff takes its toll out outfield fuel something how long after she made the movie where she portrayed the. Author who committed suicide how long after that? Did she commit suicide? It was within a year..
"greta garbo" Discussed on Suicide Buddies
"Definitely good amount actresses, but predominantly what was kinda happening especially say with say, like, a cure course, all in Japan, right is like all like movies being made at this time are all by directors. It's no very little studio involvement in America. It's all starting to clue into silent film, and they're like pushing Charlie Chaplin out. And Buster Keaton like way way there's money here. As in like, we're gonna set up Hollywood. And at the studio system. MGM, and like, you know, like, they're setting up money, whereas Japan at this time same technology is just like you mean, China, and Japan Japan started a lot of revolution. And then I think China followed suit, okay because they couldn't help it. It's like they're being invaded by Japan. So they're kind of like our movies have to be super real. You know, right war. Yeah. So they tried to deal with it's kind of funny because it's like they're dealing with like a society that is kind of patriarchal, right? You see it with her own relationship with her husband? But the movie she's making are like directly confronting the patriarchal society. Wow. That's amazing. Yeah. So her husband hates this shit. Yeah. And he's basically ninety than her husband. He's just the guy who repeatedly keeps harassing her throughout her life. And he is extorting her for money. Like, a part of this thing is he's like, I'm gonna tell everyone your fucking me.

He's losing his family fortune. But when she starts acting. She just starts blowing up like she makes four films for this company called Ming Zing. I don't know. And then who's onto Leo Leo? Okay. It's another company and Leo. How is known for being like this company that made famous pressures that were really respected, you know, years later, and they did really well. But like, they weren't just the schlock slot was still doing pretty well, always I was I was really like amazed to find out that these films were being made while they're being invaded by Japan. Like, yeah. Film didn't stop. Wow, just dealt with it. Wow. And they and a lot of females from war hardship around the area just got incorporated into film. And that's why they focused on women because it was easier for a man to feel like week looking at a woman who is you know. In the most dire straits to feel empathy. Yeah, you know. It's like this crazy thing. I don't know. Like, it's almost like kinda like queer cinema in in like indie cinema in the nineteen eighties early nineties like they focus on like the most disenfranchised people. Yeah. And it gives you empathy towards and it's like this culture shift. You know, being like, why do rape your wife like the fuck is that you know, like what the fuck is happening. You know, we're we're all dying. Like what the fuck is them. I mean, it's like, wow. Truly I'm floored by now, I had no idea.

"And this is kind of this sort of revolutionary thing of like this whole turn in Japan for women. Basically what had happened was in nineteen thirty-one Japan had invaded China and a lot of people point to like the the Chinese people felt kind of vulnerable for the first time. So you seeing this like their land got occupied like just taken away by China. China was like coming in. We're killing people were taking away land. So there's kind of this idea that may be like because of the times of our change in people are feeling vulnerable like men are expressing their emotions in cinema expressing them through women who are struggling, and there's this whole John or that's created of the suffering woman. China. It's all these stories of very modern women, very modern like it'll be like a movie about a woman who's a mother who's has a hover board. Vaping starts dabbing. A lot of supreme. It's like women like dealing with abusive men, basically genre confronting that. Like, well, if you're a secretary at this phone operating service, you know, like you're probably being abused by your boss. Okay. Yeah. And it's not like this stuff kind of was popular especially with women at the time, but became more popular after the deaths of all these people like it kind of went a little unnoticed sense like it was popular enough. But like, I don't know it wasn't like the number one thing. But it with enough that like, you know, hundreds of thousands of people wanted to show up to her funeral like they really identified with the characters. She was putting on screen. Well, that's fucking incredible man. Yeah. I mean, she basically fucking nineteen twenties and thirties. Yeah. Exactly. That's crazy. This is insane. Ah in China the country. Well, dude, so everyone talks about like modern acting right at the start of Marlon Brando with like he gave a naturalistic realistic performance. Even though sometimes he's like kind of off the rails. She's credited as like the Marlon Brando like a couple decades previous because she's in the silent film era, and I've seen the footage like the way she moves across the screen. And I know that sounds simplistic, but it's actually incredible to watch. It is literally like watching you walk in the room. Sit down natural is so natural. And so like. Uninhibited and the way, you know, if you were looking at actors in western society at the same time, they would have been so dramatic and like blinking ton. And be like, I love you. It was like way overblown, and she was doing like Marlon Brando. Like, I'm gonna walk across the room. You're going to watch. This tracking shot of me. I'm a prostitute. My life is low I'm in a bad situation. This is like serious like cinema. That's trying to be as realistic as possible. And he sued by the way, have you seen Marlon Brando in the godfather? Ooh. A gangster. Okay. Wow. That's cool. Yeah. That makes me really wanna watch her movies. Honestly, what clued me into this was documentary series called the story of film, which I have right there. This documentary series? That's clued me into Florence Lawrence. Okay. Cool. Yeah. It's it's a really good documentary series. And what I like about it is that in this. And I would recommend this to anybody who's into film at all this is really a documentary series as focuses on like editing and kind of like the law stories of Hollywood, and like really interesting stuff and the one thing they don't do is. They're kind of like, and and then goodfellas happened and everybody was like what? Focus on like look at this shot. Oh, cool thing this you didn't see replicated until like forty years later. Oh doing this. Yeah. So it's like that's great pretty pretty interesting. And so it kind of clued me into like this performance, she's giving and also like there's this huge influx of fairy feminist directors inside of like Asian cinema at the time with a lot of female directors.

"Acre away. Exactly, let's get back into serious. It gets it gets tragic in a minute here. And again, I already gave it a little bit of a disclaimer. So. What's interesting about this actresses? She's a silent film actress in China, right? And it's a really interesting time in Chinese cinema because it's moving away from like, the most simplistic kind of cinema, which is like almost like stories of fairy tales, this guy's in love with this woman, and he's like chasing her and like, he's a San and she's a Princess unlike. Very very simple stuff like modern day stories. Yeah. Then this is when they started making rumble in the Bronx. No day. That's while if. In this age. It would have been incredible real. Yeah. Yeah. This time. It's it's basically all like it's the same stories without the Kong. And it's interesting boring. Sure. Sure. But oddly, very feminist. Okay. Like, what happened was basically like, you know, cinema had been created only kind of recently like nineteen fifteen or whatever. Like, you know, these Nickelodeon of seeing very simple. And so when what time beer what year did she start acting when she was sixteen. I think around like nineteen a little bit before nineteen thirties. Okay. Yeah. So basically, this is the movement between silent film to talking. She's a silent film actress dill into like, the relative new form of like talking movies, which weren't necessarily seen in China in order to mean, like, okay, she was still a very popular relevant. Actress inner time k sort of thing. And what's tragic is that like silent film in general? They say that like almost like ninety eight percent of those films are just gone, right? We don't know him. We don't see them. Yeah. Like actors directors worked on tried to make you know movies. Sometimes like they worked a little bit to expand the the the genre. Yeah. And it's it's still gone is gone. I know man, I say all the time. Those directors really should've put that stuff in the cloud. What are you doing? Just sync up your tablet, your screen, just yet, man. Plug your real the real into I tune sync up your real real with your tablet and your button. Cloud. You got the I but. Ex myself got it. It is bigger. She couldn't put her shit up on that. Like only like one third of her movies exists even have We'll even. have even seen. You know what I mean? Like a lot of them get completed a lot of shit just didn't get out. But still she is a good movie. They'll see is like one of like the biggest like actresses in China compared like when you think about her role in like feminist like movies, basically when she died in. Feminism. When she died in nineteen thirty five. It was such a spectacle like the New York Times at the time called it. The biggest like spectacle funeral of our century. When she died as at the height of Famer, whatever she there was a three mile funeral procession of people just mourners. There was hundreds of thousands of people following this. This is how beloved she was. Well, yeah. I kind of wanted to like almost like say that at the top before I get into like how her career kind of auspiciously started. Okay. You know, she started when she was sixteen basically. And she was she answered an ad at the time because she was living in this kind of violent relationship. Her mother is where it gets kind of triggering basically is her mom had been pretty destitute. Her father died at a young age. So her mom became a made inside of a wealthy families house, and therefore she kind of became a made in wealthy rouse, the youngest son of that family raped her and made her his wife just kinda was like, you're my wife. Wow. Really marry her. He was just like you're with me this year with me from now on and he was like an abusive piece of shit.
