They're calling it a fundraiser about something the goal. The event, according to a statement for the participants, is to raise money to get Texas to vote Blue on November 3rd.

"Debatable strategy. The vice presidential debate is still going ahead as a live event on Wednesday, but given Mike Pence's close proximity to the president could this put Kamala Harris and others at unnecessary risk? Still Ahead Julia Louis Dreyfus and show runner David. Mandel on how Selena Meyers, making her voice heard in election twenty twenty plus an all new year deal. Welcome back between his doctors and his administration not being on the same page about his condition and the shocking lack of accountability with events in the Rose Garden that don't seem to have any safety measures in place who? Who Do you? Who Do you trust at this point and don't forget you know then he came to Bedminster and did a golfing outing. So sunny who who you listen to these days. You know it's very hard to believe anything because the first point of the number one point of of crisis communications, transparency honesty and accuracy, and we're not getting that from many places I think we have to listen to the doctors and the scientists and when it comes to trump's medical condition, which again is really important to the to the security of our country. I think we have to listen to the doctors I don't trust actually the White House physician. Dr Shawn. Conley. Because we know that he is spinning information that is a political position. In my opinion I think we can listen to the Walter Reed Dr especially Dr Brian Scarab Baldy? He's the doctor that gave us the information about the the steroid. This doctor that president trump is getting he is the medical director of the biocontainment Unit Johns Hopkins that's where he received his training and his medical degree. His expertise whoopie is in pulmonary and critical care and He's one of those physicians that is treating president trump and so when it comes to president trump's condition those of the doctors that we listen to no one else in my opinion what about? You what do you think? It's hard to figure out who to believe or if to believe anybody at all listen. The Dr Conley who came out and gave the report. He was very cagey and evasive trying to answer basic questions about whether he ever was on oxygen or not, and then what he says does not does not come does not fit in with what Mark Meadows says, and then the timeline doesn't fit in with anything. So Look I. Let me tell you this when you become president of the United. States. You got a great plain. You got you great secret service protection you got. A Great Limo you've got a bunch of things what you don't get is privacy because the American people deserve the right of knowing what is happening with the president of their country. It is a matter of domestic security as a matter of national security and we deserve the truth and I think most of us are not feeling like we are getting transparency from this White House and that is just not acceptable a again and it is why so many people don't trust the institutions anymore. Right what do you think joy is that who who, who, do you think? Well, you should be listening to. The Guy Dr Sean Connell Connolly. He came out and he wanted to give an upbeat an upbeat answered to what's going on. I don't like a when it comes to medicine upbeat I'll call Kathy Lee Gifford. I'm not going to call the doctor for that. But as far as trump's condition is concerned, it is what it is. I'm more worried about everybody else right now. So I'm going to be listening to Dr Falcone and Sanjay Gupta particularly Dr Faucher who has been at the forefront of this entire thing trump will be. Out of points out, he'll be taken care of quite nicely. Thank you very much. Let's worry about everybody else who's been infected and who will be infected because they're listening to him. What about you? Sarah. What do you see? I'm becoming a cynic. Who to believe anymore I do think I err on the side of always believing more the doctors and scientists but I'm one of those people that wakes up each day and I don't even know which direction to look at because I feel like twenty twenty has beaten us to a pulp and I'm just tired if feels like a circle of circus that is never ending maybe it's because it's a Monday maybe it's because I didn't sleep much last night but right now I'm just hoping doctors or the only shot I have because everything else just contradicts itself. Well. Then we have. We'll be right back. Welcome back the vice.

"His army of doctors spent the weekend giving a very positive outlook why his chief of staff Mark Meadows said, such things were more serious than you know and then you know who posted this message from the hospital yesterday take a look it's been very interesting journey. I learned a lot about Kovin. I learned it by really going to school. This is the real school. This isn't the let's read the book school and I get it. I understand it, and it's a very interesting thing letting you know about it. Yeah and so right after that, he broke quarantine to jump in an SUV for a drive by photo op and. You know. So the doctors say, no, he's really sick. The isn't really sick and then he's getting. Let's not kid ourselves. He's the head of the free world. So he's whatever they're given him. They're given him to pump him up and make him look like he's sick. So does this seem like he's a changed man to join us get it now I I'm watching that car the parade yesterday with him in the car that was right out of a dictatorship playbook. You know parade the dictator around so that the world and America can the country can see that he's still alive and he's still robust but you know I thought to myself usually the hostages are not driving the car. The thing about getting it. He's suddenly gets it. Now now that I get it the virus, it's not a hoax anymore. That's what he learned. He didn't learn the two hundred thousand people and counting. have. died from this. Do you know that they're projecting one out of ten in the world will have the corona virus that comes to I figured the whole thing about seven hundred and fifty million people will get in the Spanish flu five, hundred, million people. Got It because this population was lower in those days but here's the good news I said g say the fact that he hid the fact that he has the virus prevents the people from getting it now because he's in quarantine and he won't be spreading all over the place at his rallies to his supporters who who believe him don't wear masks. So that's the good part. was. Right. So do you think this was his attempt to assure the public that he's Okay Sonny? What I do think it was his way of trying to assure the the public that he is okay and I think that's of course very important for president to do. Because? It is a matter of national security, right? But. I don't think that's the way to do it. You don't reassure the public by signing. A empty sheet of paper with a Sharpie and pretend that you're working on nothing and I also don't think the way to do it is to as joy mention drive in a motorcade. With a secret service was secret service agents in a hermetically sealed vehicle because remember those vehicles are sealed to prevent a chemical attack from attacking the president. So that means it seals the. Chemical attack. So that means it seals the virus inside. So He is infectious and those secret service agents. Then their lives were put at risk by this president, they have families that they want to go home to as well. So what that told me was his reckless actions he didn't care about the very people who are sworn to protect him. So that is not reassuring to me if he doesn't care about those people does he care about the rest of the country? So that was really just terrible act of negligence in in trying to assure the country. So Sarah what did you make the motorcade I thought the motorcade was irresponsible and extremely selfish. We've had very clear guidelines that when you've been exposed yourself to the, you have the virus you isolate when you've been exposed to the virus you quarantine we've had we've had st you can't even travel right now to certain states even if you've had no exposure without quarantining by choice just for precaution. In one video he talks about I didn't want to be stuck in the white. House they told me to go upstairs into quarantine and he didn't want to do that. He wanted to be right out in front. So I just think it was a slap in the face to so many people who have dealt with this pandemic since you know the beginning the beginning of the year and. have. Not been able to say goodbye to loved ones who have missed life events who just stay at home now and don't go out and it's because that's what the doctors told us. So to have him optically do this it was selfish but we know that vulnerability is his Achilles heel and the most vulnerable you could be right now at this today is to have the virus. That's. The Globe. Right and what did you think about all of these plots twists over the weekend I mean did did it make any sense? will be I I. Don't know how many Americans felt like I did but I can tell you on Friday I felt a lot of sympathy and when we saw the chopper that was going to airlift him on the South Lawn my heart skipped a beat because whether I like him or not. He's the president of the United. States and no normal human want another human being to suffer harm or get very very sick or die but as we went through the weekend and I saw more video of him Mocking Hillary Clinton when she had new Monja in two thousand, sixteen of these super spreader events that have been held in the White House where now so many we know have gotten infected when we learned about the Hubris and arrogance of the trump kids at the debate who got asked by Cleveland Clinic representatives to wear a mask and refuse to do so and then when we saw him, flaunt his privilege and go out on that motorcade look my best friend's. Aunt her aunt Marion died of Kobe. My husband's son-in-law's father Sixty, eight year old Sarah died of covert and let me tell you. They didn't get to leave the hospital. They did they are they were laying in hallways because there were no empty rooms where they could be they. They had to say goodbye to their loved ones on face time. Okay. They many of them couldn't get plasma it took days and days they couldn't get run desa veer because there was a shortage in the worst times when that happened in places like Miami and New York. So the treatment he's getting at taxpayer expense is privilege treatment. That the president of the United States receives and for him to flaunting by going out there like he's Queen Elizabeth waving from the motorcade in front from the limousine while the so many sick people didn't get the same chance or the same treatment didn't have ten doctors in a team attending to his and call while he just so insensitive and angered me and angered me and angered me the more the weekend. What by. Well I gotta say the same thing I I I I have the same sympathy that they exhibited. For Kristen, Yuka, say she's the young lady that was at the Democratic convention it and she was very angry at you know who? Because she said my father's only A. Pre. Existing condition was trusting. you-know-who and he was he was a factory worker, supported the president and believed him about the virus and They mocked her, they mocked her I guess he's forgot he says he gets it now you can't possibly get it. You didn't go through it you whatever you have or whatever you got. They got to you and they they gave you everything you needed to do with everybody else the rest of the people united. States of America don't get to do what you do. They don't get to do what you do and not only do people die from this and continue to die from it. You just basically said to everybody it doesn't matter. It doesn't matter. You can look look at me look at what I'm doing, but we're not you. Thank God. We'll. Be Right back. Later.

'Onward' Leads Box Office With Ho-Hum $40 Million
"Right Steve tells about armored yes it's the latest from Pixar here we go it begins with a look back in history not not our history but the history of a fantasy world where all manner of sort of mermaids and unicorns and elves and fairies and minotaurs and wizards in just about any other creature you might find in a role playing game would exist but as these fantasy beings find short cuts to do doing magic over time like why why user wings to fly when you can buy an ORP airplane ticket or why use a spell to start a fire would you can use a match they become lazy and the magic that made them special starts to disappear from the world at large so skip ahead to more or less the presentation you meet we meet Ian and barley who were to elf brothers voiced by Tom Holland and Chris Pratt they grew up with it without their father because the the father died just before the younger Ian was born and when barley was still a young a young L. fling there mother who's voiced by Julia Louis Dreyfus has done a great job of raising them but that hasn't kept him from being frustrated at not having a dad he kinda lacks confidence he doesn't have a lot of friends and I believe that having a father in his life might have changed that barley is is a bit of a lovable lug who knocked everything over that distance pass any tried to take connected to the magical world through role playing games and he drives this amazing band named Guinevere that he refers to it as mighty Steven if you see the detailing on the side you'll understand why so he in turn sixteen is mom gives the in this very special present from his dad it's a wizard staff that includes a built in spell that brings this is supposed to bring his father back to life for twenty four hours and I even kind of botches the spell about halfway through with only the bottom half of his father basically just his pants appear to him very much alive and communicative but without sort of gears in a haze in ways to communicate very well even figured out that he needs something called a Phoenix crystal to complete the spell and barley thinks this is a great opportunity to sort of tear up on a brotherly class that ends with even forgetting to spend this day with his dad that he's always dreamed of in for barley it's a chance to rediscover the magic that still exists in their world the director Dan Scanlan who did monsters university which was definitely not one of my favorite Pixar films has crafted what what might be Pixar's purist adventure film get him in the team have filled it with water last action in a great deal of creativity I really like that could be a Spencer this beastly creature that she plays name the manticore that's part lion and bad the scorpion and she used to be the most feared and respected creature in the realm and now she's managing the theme restaurant but between the laughs on where does what Pixar does best which is that fine that emotional core of the story and by the end we realize the film isn't about this kids search for his father it's about this kid realizing the into appreciating the people in his life that did raise him and did have a hand in shaping who he is and you know if you have a sibling in your life that you're particularly close to I'm gonna get you you might cry like a baby in this movie I don't know but on would also deal with issues of bullying and searching for inner confidence and how real magic sometimes from just comes from just believing in that you can that you can do something even if you can't so it sounds corny it is Corning sometimes I think the energy that Holland impressed bring to these characters is really impressive and they sort of cell that lifelong bond it's genuinely moving the sometimes manic performances carry over to the pacing of the film which at times can be exhausting but onward finishes strong I think with a stand off between our heroes and a really interesting visual take on what I always think of the played out creature in the fantasy world the that needs some conquering in this film this is the the the old the the whole film is sort of hit and miss at times but I think the final act delivers on its emotional promise and brings all things to a satisfying conclusion at least the movie sort of dealt with itself in color and imagination and and and a healthy dose of enthusiasm I think we end up winning the day I was shockingly underwhelmed by this movie is the prologue of this movie that that Steve described as the this idea that the magic of kind of got out of the world everyone's you've taken the easy way out we do not agree to set up for a movie a movie that I knew very little about yeah that's all users are like an elder in road trip movie with two brothers and I thought that that was pretty good pretty great set up and the movie business takes on that life that it just seems that it gets easy itself and the sort of forgets the the really sort of really intriguing premise that it sets itself apart but then that would be in the emotional undercurrent in this movie of this movie where they're trying to resurrect their dad for this very brief time in their lives one of the bridge brothers should be no didn't really know him at all I you know I I was expecting a much bigger payoffs at the end of the film and the it's a little slow for the bulk of the movie ice was sort of tolerating in this adventure story which I really wish I had only been the one brother I really did not like the Chris Pratt brother character I thought it was just the heat interrupted everything too often I would much rather have been so little story with the brother try and of the one year old son trying to reconnect with his father is this wonderful moments really early on in the movie where the the the younger brother have a tape of his father and he has the nose the tape so while he's able to sync crappy conversation with his father as a result of that I thought well what I mean that to me in such a way that display all the unsold set up for this movie now and then it just became more of a routine adventure story with a couple nifty set pieces along the way and I was just waiting for this conclusion to really only family families I'm going to get back at the end and I thought that they botched it to the entire movie I kept thinking about the ending to status perks A. I. which is seems to be where this movie almost guilt to gain that idea of resurrecting this you know your most loved person for a single day the never being able to speak to them ever again not that movie you know destroys me this movie left me underwhelmed yeah I was underwhelmed by it too I was it didn't have any to it but I didn't connect with it emotionally and that's really odd for Pixar movie because most Pixar movies you connect on an emotional level you know and but I can't I can't count the number of Pixar movies that have me crying you know like all agree on usually it's at the end but in the in the case of office the first ten minutes right but I didn't I didn't connect with these characters I was nicely animated there are some clever things in it and some of the action sequences are fine but I never connected with it on any kind of emotional level so I was I was disappointed with onward as well so it did make forty million over the weekend now six seven eight no no this is this isn't down there this is good dinosaur numbers yeah and the first big family they've ever opened in March it's always been either June November the couple won the end of may sell the I mean they have another one coming out in June I just don't know if they just didn't know where to put this movie or they didn't think it was strong enough for a summer holiday release but forty million dollars is not great for for for movie of they are real steel like Pixar okay all right and is million came in second with fifteen million up to about fifty three million total that's pretty solid let's see yeah it's almost yes it can be close to a hundred million dollars worldwide only cost seven million dollars to make you go man and then the way back eight point five million not not a that great unfortunately all right
‘Downhill’ Review: A Small Disaster in the Snow
"Downhill this isn't a remake of a Swedish from to from two thousand fourteen this call force majeure antibody a marriage that's on the rocks it's a family on vacation in the Alps as the situation develops which has a interesting outcome now and this time it's will Ferrell and Julia Louis Dreyfus are playing the married couple and the situation I'm kind hinting at is an avalanche a controlled avalanche that occurs while they're on vacation and the signature moment of the film is that when it happens will Ferrell's character thinks oh my gosh it's Annapolis role doomed and he scampers away from his family rather than trying to protect them be with them save them leaving his wife to think oh my gosh we just had this life threatening situation and you abandon us what kind of a man are you so it's a it's a kind of a an accidental situation that really pokes at their relationship and and is it as strong as it could be is it should be does it reveal things that are wrong with their bond and that's where the story kind of go from there will Ferrell is making a serious part yeah you know there are some mildly comic moments maybe darkly comic but this is not a typical will Ferrell comedy for sure so it's kinda it's he's done some films in the recent past where he's kind of stretch to bed so I think he's good enough that the drivers is always excellent whatever she does and so I like that part of it what I didn't like is it's a very short movie it just under ninety minutes into me when you're when you're showing a marriage that's troubled that there's a relationship issue there's tension between the two people you got to really break it down you've got to spend some time with these people and it just begins and ends so quickly I don't think it does that so there wasn't any scene in the movie were will Ferrell did his signature of parents running around naked except for his jockey shorts no he doesn't these are not what doesn't realize that that's his thing it's a stick the manchild routine and I kind of miss it I have to say but yeah he's he's got a little older is take more sophisticated rolls and this is something that's added his wheel house but I like that I committed before putting this movie out on Valentine's day weekend makes no sense even the poster you got the two main characters looking away from each other listen I don't mind this kind of movie they feel like you know I was like marriage story but not nearly as intense but pick a different weekend at the box office is terrible the four point six million not surprising it's it's a tough movie to market because it's not wacky it's more thoughtful it's it's it's difficult to package so a relationship feel bad moving on Valentine's day exactly it listen I love counter programming but I think if fantasy island which were not of top we had I think you and I have seen it but I give that as counter program okay you don't one of a romance movie go for like a hard R. horror movie but this one it just seems very strange and the box office really proved it was a bad choice without spoiling it does that have a happy ending

"Welcome back to the frame. I'm John Horn theater critic. Stephen Lee Morris was working at the L. A. Weekly when village voice media bought the alternative newspaper about fifteen years ago. A lot of controversy has rock paper since with almost all of the paper staff being fired two years ago. But Moore's could see the writing on the wall long before that journalistic integrity was being abandoned for Click Bait and advertisers weren't interested in that lowest common denominator approach in its one act. Play Red Ink. Morris tells a dark satirical story based on real experiences working in journalism. We've changed the location. We've changed the names Blah Blah Blah and some of the incidents are half true deliberately for artistic design but I the larger picture. I hope is reflective of what's happening in the industry continues to be happening in the industry. There is a character in your story called Jerome. And I'm going to quote a line. That drum says pretty early in the play and it is edit a newspaper. That has a purpose a communion with its readers. Smart and Wurley choosing a story from a passion to tell it not from some speculation on what might get the most hits and all this built on a legacy of wit and solid research. That's our model for the Herald. He believes that doesn't he? Yes Oh yes. There was a time that was true at the La Weekly. I really believe that I was there at that time. And I think that's what made it a great paper and I don't think that's hyperbolic or overly ideological I. I think there was a truce to something entire truth. But it's a truth and he has good reason to believe that when you are thinking about what happened to you professionally and what you WANNA do. Artistically was the starting point and what was the kind of creation of the story? What was that process like for you? Well I I was obviously upset. does a certain amount of frustration. That something you losing a child something. It's not my child per se. It's somebody else's child but it's the child on the lesson and you see it on being diminished back in two thousand and eight. I was having a play done off Broadway and it was on the a train and I saw. This guy was an almost empty trained. Those guy was sitting alone and he was laughing hysterically. They were bursts of saliva being sprayed onto the windows and he was rocking back and forth and and I thought to myself this has got to be the former editor of an alternative weekly newspaper. Dark thought so. I thought it was a good joke in a way to start the play but then the play got much darker as it was being written meaning a little bit there but for the grace of God go I that you saw yourself. And there's there's there's always that I don't think I am that editor in chief. I was never editor in chief and a paper. But Yes yes there. But for the grace of God. We're talking with Stephen Lee Morris about his play red ink. It's one of those things too that this paper is dying from a thousand paper cuts and those paper cuts reveal themselves in different ways and one of the ways they reveal themselves is in the diminishing of standards. There was a heroin scene. Where a intern named Corbett comes to talk to a couple of editors. And here's what she says about a story. When did the scoop become more important than the truth? Are they ordering you to be so small so mean so yellow? You are a great newsman Fred. She could have said you were. She says you are tells about that incident. Because it's central to the story of apply. She actually followed that line after she says you are a great newsman Fred. She follows with the line. What's happened to you which is really the point I saw at the paper stuff that got added. It is a fictional in the play fictionalized account of something. That actually happened. And I'll just relate what happened in the play is that what was added was an accusation based on a court report that this manager had been charged for various Sexual improprieties that. Were really quite vulgar. If this is true the the paper said he could spend several decades in prison etcetera etcetera etcetera. What the intern brings out? But it's one accusation. He has not yet been charged. He has certainly not been convicted. But by putting the accusation in print. He has just been convicted on the web on various social media platforms where it will live forever and that. That's what upsets her. And that's why she says why is the Wise the scoop more important than the truth because his decisions are governed not by what is good journalism. But we'll get clicks is titillating exciting. Little thing to put in to a new story as he points out. It's not inaccurate in that. There is this accusation but nonetheless it's a smear you wrote the play originally ten years ago and a lot has happened since then. Yes how does that change? Not only what you're writing but how it might be received. I'm a complainer by nature. I complained over the years that this is a topical planet needs to be done now and yet ten years later. This is the cultural moments where it seems to be resonating. We have seen the resolution of the play. That is now no longer there. We rewrote it. That was one of the last big changes I made was a scene in which the editor in trying to get fired because he had lost his mind. He was begging to be fired so he could collect on his severin's so he made up a story that was just outrageous and it backfired because the fiction became like so popular and they just wouldn't fire him and I thought that was amusing and I thought that was a a way for him to step down with with his comic backdrop and then came that if you recall that video that vulgar video with trump as character racing through the halls and gunning down newspaper outlets that were all labeled collectively fake news. And I thought well my joke might have been amusing in two thousand eighteen and twenty twenty. It's no longer funny and so we changed out too much more sobering conclusion with with An Inside L. gunman coming through the paper. Well and it gets to the idea that we hear a lot about journalists being the enemy of the people and about what it means to live in a post factual world. Yes and the fact that telling what you believe is. The truth can lead to violent consequences which was unimaginable. Even five years ago Steven Lee Morris is the playwright of red ink steven.

Who's keeping the concept album alive? That's Today on the frame. We'll be right back. Welcome to the fray mom John Horn for Valentine's Day weekend. Here's an idea a new movie. That might leave you contemplating the meaning of marriage. The film is called Downhill. And it's dramatic and dark comedy adapted from the Swedish movie for Moore. The Film Stars Julia Louis Dreyfuss and Will Ferrell as a couple whose family is on a European ski vacation when the resort sets off. What's supposed to be controlled? Avalanche that threatens them and their kids. Each parents reaction reveals deeper divisions in the marriage. Julia Louis Dreyfuss is also a producer of downhill. We got together at the Sundance Film Festival. A couple of weeks ago. Where the movie premiered. She said she. I discussed the idea of an American remake of force majeure with Fox searchlight back in two thousand fourteen but I had just finished making this movie enough said with them and we were talking about further projects and I said believe it or not. I said you know I'm really intrigued. By stories in which reality is seen one way and then a lens is taken off and you look at reality a completely different way within the story and they said well we just came back from con. We saw this movie. You should see this movie. Because we're trying to get the rights to it to rebuild force majeure. Yeah so I said your love to see it and so they screened it and I was utterly hooked. I remember watching force majeure on my laptop and there's a scene in which there's an avalanche and the father without giving too much way doesn't exactly do the right thing that kind of and remember when I watched it. I backed up and watch like ziprecruiter film. I went frame by frame. Like what is he really do? How does he really react? And in the original movie. It's a little vague in your version. It's not I guess. It's a little more clear in your adaptation. I'M GONNA ask about that moment and in your adaptation why that was key to amplify that choice. Well we wanted to be clear what he did but unclear as to the fallout from it. So in other words The wife in this situation play by myself is in utter shock and we wanted to unravel the sweater from that point. From a storytelling point of view. This movie is certainly about the repression of Truth and truth and denial of truth. Which is I think an interesting theme particularly right now. And denial of facts But on both ends because you know initially the couple that you know. It's a stunning moment and then rather than a direct confrontation or conversation. Even about what had happened. They don't have that because I think what happened feels unmentionable because it's so shameful and so They they begin. This is a credit to Jesse Armstrong. Who did the adaptation they begin By attacking an outside source that is to say these safety. The mountains safety guy played by Christopher Hindu and on the enforce measure who is also enforced measure and wonderful in that movie as well as in our movie. Here's what I think you're not picking up on. This was a huge event for our family. Okay and Sir. I don't WanNa make this a legal matter between us. I don't know I don't I but I'm saying that I don't want nothing lyrica. Were you sue. Because your coffee's hot madame school you I'm an attorney okay. You've heard our complaints. Yeah will someone needs to hear it. Thank you for your time. And no. Thank you for your time for me. That is for certain. I thought that was such a great idea to put it away from themselves. Put that anxiety in that tension Onto somebody else before they turn on one pretty cool. We're talking with Julia. Louis Dreyfuss producer and actor in downhill on as about castain and are talking about the kids the couple because they're older than the original film and that changes something because they understand what's happening in the marriage. The kids in the other movie. I think are too young to really appreciate it. These kids are older and they know what's happening and was at written. Was that just something where you start thanking us our producer. What does it mean if these kids are twelve as opposed to seven? We totally discussed that at great length. I mean look both will and I are old right and I'm really old. No no no I am and so and when we first started doing this I was like we gotta get this done soon because pretty soon it's going to be implausible for me to have two young children and in fact they needed to be young because they had to you needed to feel as if they were vulnerable in the situation of the avalanche Had they been in their teens? You might have felt that they were possibly less vulnerable. Not that teenagers can't be vulnerable. But somehow being younger sir heightens the the the the sense of danger I think And then additionally we sort of wrote it into the script or pretty subtly implied that we were an older couple who decided to have children late in life Wills character refers to fertility treatments that we went through and whether or not it was going to work so this was a sort of a later in life choice for this couple which is sort of an interesting idea to what about. Well how did you end up? Casting him He read the script and he was super interested in it and I had seen stranger than fiction and was a very big fan of his work in that I mean I'm a fan of his work period. I mean the guys have stone cold genius but he was able in stranger than to embrace a dramatic tone and therefore he would be able to sort of tackled this material and then we met believe it or not. We never met before not some random. Hollywood party and we have these parallel lives you know because of SNL and Etcetera Etcetera. But no. We have lots of friends in common but we never met. We met four this project and we had a long coffee and talked at great length about the material and He hadn't seen force majeure he'd only read the script of downhill so and he was like I really want to do it and I said well before you sign on make sure you really want to watch the original you know and make sure you WanNa step. Put your toe into this water. There's a expression that a friend of mine who worked in marketing uses an. It's an overcome as like a marketing. Obstacle that a film has. This is a serious movie about marriage and it stars people who are generally known for doing comedies. You think that's an issue in terms of either people come in thinking it's GonNa be funny or people who WanNa see a dramatic film and being unsure of. Comedians can do it completely. It's been a challenge from a marketing point of view. I mean the trailer was very Intentionally I if you watch the trailer you'll see. That's not chock full of That's by design. It looked like it was going to kill us full moment. The kids were screaming because it felt like we were gonNA dot keet and he had grabbed his phone. Keep left us nice. I didn't leave you to bear. Even though there are plenty of jokes within the film I mean there are comedic beats but I would say more dramatic beats than comedic beats when I watch downhill. I went back and rewatch force majeure because I wanted to see how that movie ended and I'm not going to talk about what specifically happens in the ending of your film. There's a scene in both films ski run and there's a scene in your film that is new. That is I. Think my favorite scene in the movie where there's a conversation about what will Ferrell's character can do and it feels like a really interesting way to end the movie. I'm wondering about that scene about its importance in how you try to figure out how the movie should end totally without talking about what she says to her husband. Well I think that we wanted. We did not want the movie to end up with a neat little bow. We wanted to have ambiguity at the end of this film. I think it's safe to say that people might leave the theater thinking either. This couple is gonNA work it out or maybe this couple Is got a real problem on their hands and I think. Both truths are acceptable It's up for. She makes a decision and I think it's questionable decision. Okay I mean you know as a standing outside of it. I can understand why she did it but I'm not sure it's exactly the right thing to do in that moment but that's okay because They're trying to crawl their way out of this mess and this is their kind of muddy messy way of doing it. And you know it's up for discussion as to whether or not it's the right. The right move. I really liked playing that scene because I understood why she would come to that conclusion. But it was very important to me in this in the film that we made that this character that I played was flawed Because I we didn't want it to be a movie about you. Know sort of cowardice and masculinity and just that it needed to be a little more balanced and that was important to me and the wife character in our film makes a couple of pretty miserable decisions. I would say Julia. Great to see you. Thanks for coming back on the show. Thank you for having me. It's fun to talk to. You always Julia. Louis Dreyfuss Co Stars in Downhill with Will Ferrell.

Yeah he looked really good. He looks great seen him look bad but I drew this award show as he does in every single still of photography taking him ever Israel. Where's the talks really well of any family well. It's a gift Lotta Pink and red dresses which I liked all of them. I think we were talking about just looks like a huge. Valentine onstage dynasty chic which I was into like Mandy Moore could've just like stepped off like an eighty soap op right and that's what I want for my fashion. We also have to Raji. GP Henson Great Yeah. All three of them have either watch dialing Hollywood on Netflix but I've heard it's really good it is really good and like the the first three episodes center around Dang Raji Henson's emmys dress code and yes this last year okay because Jason Baldness her stylist stylist and they're really good friends to show and so I was just thinking styling Hollywood and season two can't wait to hear about distress. They held it shadow styling Hollywood. One of Netflix few wins tonight. flicks yeah slow for them kind of great. Let's commercials now. ozark night were their networks commercials which wines the breaking bad movie. Yes that's true the Camino last hour. There were a few three just kept seeing the new netflix seven million. Leeann streaming sites now and there were commercials for all of them and there's a lot of apple plus huge. I feel like it anyway back to fashion. I also might think probably my favorite was purchase. There's Clarkson. She did like blonde more tissue atoms which is real kate everything you want from purchase. Clarkson ever but yeah it was great never looked great. We all oh really Zendaya so late though like we didn't really see your until she walked out in glasses she present which was fabulous. She's got the marvel money and she's a cool kid. So Oh yes you need to get there early. That's true. Actually she doesn't have marvel money anymore. Right right YEP per spiderman series is dead. Maybe they only mice. I'd still like to you see how that's ultimately resolved but yeah we know about that stuff too. I WANNA share that Kid Harrington who I generally have no interest in as John Snow or in real life but I thought he looks phenomenal Q. Like the Best I've ever seen him. Maybe yes maybe the best never looked tie really channeling Richard Madden which was a great look for him also recommended not show which was Sassou. Ask You guys see what Richard Man did in debt yeah bill t rex out of Lego instagram could for him huge flex. You know I'd like to nominate Emilia Clarke while around the gas are- if Valentino I I'd love to know about. I assume it's tape. That's involved in this attraction but she's wearing confidence. She looks great. I was so ready to root against I'm sorry I did but she made it a little bit more difficult than I had plans. At least you followed through my Rudolph and Michelle Williams both in floral patterns both looking great really really enjoyed that more Michelle Williams in a few minutes. I liked Natasha. Leones look also should we talk about Natasha. Leone clapping. Yeah you're cool. Kidman Adman clapping apparently it is interesting way of clapping. It is like she just learnt how a small child when you teach them how to do applies their hands together but she was consistent in it. She applauded for a lot of people which we appreciate. I really liked it. She was wearing glasses during the show. I just love glasses formal. Look look at the Oscars Golden Globes and EMMYS. It's very common and I think it's a great I would do it. Billy Puerto Ricans and also the formal yes. It's a great addition. It's fake furnished. We're on the same the same people to do it because like young always does it. Oprah as a love the former bosses Amanda. I'm happy to tell you that the Tasha Leo Gift of her clapping readily available for whenever you need that's great people are ready. I think that makes sense. I'm just going to try to do it in my own life. One more nomination. Naomi watts she looks phenomenal and black just logged in just great the new game of thrones star new game. It's just getting ready. I I liked we'll talk a lot more reckoning with routes but I like to the end of the show how David any off who is my one true love can be like and now it's over we did it and now it is over totally disavowing try to shut out any notions of the prequels and spin offs that are that are coming alright great injection positively positively we'll ride this enthusiasm into talking about the most awkward moment of evening which was allow a complicated one which was when. Phoebe Waller Bridge won on Best Actress in a comedy beating out Julia Louis Dreyfuss in her final season as Lena Meyer from beep and bridges incredibly happy. Kate was incredibly happy. Many people on the Internet were incredibly happy. Let's get this out of the way. This is a pro fleabag podcast. You're lovely about free. It's one of the best things that that I've seen in any medium in two thousand and nineteen. Maybe in the decade yet great up there yeah fix perfect episodes a season two. Yes at flawless sure but Julia Louis Dreyfus purpose is probably the best television actress of in history. Yeah I think she's like Lucille Ball and Carol channing. Yes and she had one for veep. I believe every season she had been nominated and she was going to break the record for the most emmy wins by a woman of of all time and she she is there's also a breast cancer survivor yeah and that happened between these seasons so I think we all assumed that this would be her emmy and and it was not and that's the way the cookie crumbles moreover everyone in the room assuming yes so it was like the most tepid response. It's a win from a show that is universally praised yes. I'm sure that no one's like fleabag doesn't deserve it deserve. It really sucks sucks. That's how the point just was such an incredibly awkward moment. Totally I think okay like root for history. It's like when you walk or it's and you want to see a record broken or you. You want like someone's got hot. Hand you want to leave him in the game but as long as possible like it's okay to root for history it's okay to experience that moment and it was just really awkward. Yeah and it's also a fever waller. Bridge did not really read the room in that moment. I was wondering I guess veep is maybe not a big deal in the UK. They don't care about it. They're like we have in the loop. We don't actually need the American version of IANUCCI stuff but she was like thanking her agent and I just it wasn't the note that you wanted at that. Moment also weird for her to be profusely thanking or agent given the feud between writers and agents right now. Yes weird moment. It was not mentioned once during the entire telecast now's house per day and there was a lot of ignoring everything going on TV. No one was talking about streaming services. Everyone was just you know thinking whatever likes Amazon that that helped them. A lot of Amazon wants by the way but yeah it just it. It was uncomfortable. Even though it was happy yeah it's like not undeserved served right with the moment felt wrong and it. Kinda sucks then for our bread shoes. True talent is actually Frank Kayla. I will say like she seems super for actress to me in that moment in a way. I don't like to acknowledge and I just like Oh. This is a real actress but she also had just been up there like I think it would have been different if she hadn't won anything yet yet right right right so she had just been up there. She's up there again. It's like Oh you again like everyone loves her but like it is. It would have been different than if it had just been the first win for few celebrity yeah so it's tough. It's a no win a little bit she continued to she did continue to win now. She did and it was awesome. That fleabag won best comedy. US totally detailing curling. Everyone say their favorite episode man you go first the last one I mean come on the answer here. I soon as you said that to me. I I also kind of don't think of them as discreet right so it's entirely it was just one you could put those together and it would be like one very long movie and it would be kind of perfect shorter then some worth celebrating movies kate the first episode the pilot was the second season yeah great one of the Jumpsuit Yeah Mine's the number three's Kristin Scott Thomas See Russia Kristin Scott Thurow's Jonzon hot priest socially tough but you got yeah Kristin Scott Thomas. Oh yeah that's a trade. That's funeral so many other version of one yeah one we don't talk about the new one in the really funny thing about season into fleabag is just like everyone acknowledges now including TV while our bridge how essential Andrew Scott as you play the AK Moriarty too many of us who watched Sir Lock. Yeah weird very greatest in yeah. It was really cool and she when she turned to him accepting best comedy. It was like we did this because Andrew. You're Scott came in and that was cool. It was great and also you finally got to be on stage which was good so a motive. Actually I just want to say I love back. I don't need any more Brett Gelman twenty twenty between fleabag and stranger things. Yeah Ozone Lot shred amount of everything done. We're done offense. I guess it's it's really inherently offensive thing okay moving on so that was like a low and then and then I within a low below the recovered itself yeah. Just I mean it is remarkable. It's saying that is a special as fleabag actually won the emmys. We don't see actually the best. Things don't usually win awards. That's literally every awards show and fleabag winning and phoebe Waller winning for writing. It's just like wow we did it. That's great yeah so that was good good job on this one thing good Johnson. Okay Okay Hi Michelle Williams speech amazing stuff amazing stuff. This is also what happens when you practice and you prepare and she had clearly given some thought to what she wanted to say and not. Maybe she wrote it. I'm not really sure because it was definitely well-crafted and she hit her points but it was more that she had an idea and she wanted to turn this into It's a speech about equal pay which is like something. She's been crosshairs about a lot. If you remember when they did the re-shoots for I guess it was called all the money in the world it was the Getty Nassar Getty show out of it so Kevin Spacey's the Laura for Christopher plummer and they did the re shoots her fi versus Mark Wahlberg fee. Yes she took like a daily fee and Mark Wahlberg at one point five million dollars and then it became a thanks so she I used that in order to talk about a Fosse verdant. FX And the support and what happens when you actually do support of working specifically women have car work. She just like she had the stats. That's she nailed it.

"Welcome to the frame emme special from KPCC in Los Angeles. I'm John Horn the host of the frame and I'm Lorraine Ali television critic for the La Times Save. We'll hear from a lot of nominees. It's about their work and their shows and we'll talk about. Emmys can tell us about the state of television right now. which is a really really interesting state? Yeah and one thing I want to talk about is he is late night. Talk shows I mean I know. We think that that's a place to go for humor and some jokes. I'm finding some of the best documentary reporting on television right now is happening on shows like John Oliver Samantha B so we'll cover that I am really looking forward to the limited series category this year because it is dumbass about stuff that has been on television talking about Chernobyl when they see us Fussy verdon escaping down more these are excellent shows and the limited series category used to be kind of like now. It's like that is the place that we're looking at it. I'm looking forward to see what happens with that but we're going to start with a comedy series and that Atas veep its lead actress could make some Emmy History Julia Louis and the emmy goes to even Julia Louis Dreyfuss. Let me try to annoy drivers now for most emmys one by performer and the same the same series peaches came back for its final season. There is another big final season it rhymes with game of thrones it is getting thrown and so on but before veep wrapped up its final season. I had a chance to speak with Julia Louis Dreyfuss. There's a lot of grief around the end of a series assuming the series has been a a good thing and a happy thing which in our case it has been and that has an incredible bitter sweetness to it that can really got you and it did. Let's talk about the final season running for President and she is asked a basic question of very early in the season which is why and other people are curious but here's a conversation. I bet she has with Gary who's played by Tony Hill because it is my God is was the game changer. I took bombed the glass ceiling. I shave my in the sink of the Old Boys Club for three years. He kept me chained to a radiator some basement in Cleveland. So as far as I'm concerned America owes me an eight year stay in the White House at this time. I want a war yeah. What is it like listening to that. It's gobs of fun. I think that's so well written so I was just sort of listening to the language you you know she's not a great candidate. That's not under state but I appreciate her her bitterness and her struggle when you are playing her. You'll have some way of saying okay. I know that this is a character and and I know that what she wants is not something that she's able to express but that's the actor plane her. I have to believe what it is. She wants here's how I would answer that. She's he's a very horrible human being and hideously behaved and really has no leadership skills whatsoever or no point view even other than her own narcissistic endeavor but when you player you have to come at it from well bill why and once you start to humanize that horrible nece you can find a way in to play it with a certain amount of well in a weird way. I say empathy and even though I'm not necessarily asking the viewer to be empathetic. I just want the viewer to laugh off but it just perhaps that keeps her from being hated by the audience right. What are the greater kinds of compliments. You can get from people who work in politics. I I hear time and time again. This is what it's really like in Washington and you know. I- winces I say that too but yeah that's that's what we hear. I had the great good fortune into meet Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan once and she told me that she got together with Justice Scalia. When veep was on on the air every week to discuss the past week's episode because there were both fans imagine that are can't? I know I would do anything thing to have those conversations. Let's hope somebody recorded them. I know maybe the FBI

All kinds of stuff says go after Julia Louis Dreyfuss. It looks like he did a shit ton of research new even fill out the first this stuff you too but I don't like to use the research. I didn't know you're on Seinfeld so I lifted this. You Played Alani Alani beans. Have you made your peace with the fact that you will never walk by a T._v.. Set that thirty percent of the time isn't playing Seinfeld. Now I have not I have not and but I don't maybe you can appreciate this. I don't really like to watch any of that. I had had a great time doing it and stuff but it makes me anxious to go back and look at it and so I just sort of avert my eyes for the most part right you're in an airport. You're someplace and it's in the background and you just you avert your eyes correct. You turn to the side uh-huh yeah <hes> S._N._l.. I did and you as I I was a writer there yeah <hes> but I look back on my S._N._l.. Years People must say oh. You must have so much fun as fear S._N._l.. Years and what what I'm fond of is the experience I liked being thrown into the deep end at such a young age. I know you're much younger than I was. When I was twenty four when I was on Santa Live and you were much younger than that I appreciated getting being thrown in the deep end? I wouldn't change anything I did kind of find it terrifying even as a writer and I don't know what it's hard to explain that to people. How many years were you there? I was there for three seasons. Yeah me too <hes> yeah. It was very scary and I was ill-equipped. I was not a writer and so I just came in as a eager actress right. You know how that works. I've been in your actions sir. I know yeah so it was it was not exactly what I thought it was going to be right at all but you met Larry David David my third year there he was only there for one year and and we bonded in misery and then a few years later Seinfeld came about but I will say that being their learning sort of the the sort of the agony of doing the show and how that is as I'm talking about S._N._l.. Doing a live show and having the heartache of that 'cause I didn't really excel there in any way except I did learn certain things by failing and in retrospect and so it sort of informed my life moving forward from that point for sure. Would you agree with this. I have a thought sometimes which is I wouldn't change a thing for everything. I wouldn't change it. Everything that's happened all the ups all the downs. I wouldn't change a thing <hes>. Would you say that about about your own career which you if you could go back and change a few things..

I don't think anything beyond Carter Reagan was around there and we didn't go anywhere near real history after that yeah yeah and and and we're very very deliberately never identified party which turned out to be a godsend so you know all of those but and yet the show we would do things is like the vaccination stuff that was in the most recent season and then the next thing you know everybody's getting measles and looping cough and everything else and I and it's a huge political football also it was so interesting that this character of Joan Ryan who is comically comically inept and unlikable and to the point where if he had existed on television eight years ago Oh you would have said well he's funny but he's little like Larry. Lynn Vallone Mash like no one can exist in the world is that you know what I mean. Who's always to cartoon? Yes but sadly it became wait. Wait a minute.

We have to push the envelope to find our way. So it's been scary. Any after four years we change show runners, and that was scary. There's been a lot of like jumping off cliffs making this show. But I've really enjoyed it is it the thing you're most proud of guys. Yeah. Yes. It's so impressive. It's so good. Thank you, love it so much. It really is an in really can't underestimate, what percentage of that is you in my opinion. Just the again, the fact that you can anchor a show is the lead whose story, we're following we care about in yet be sociopathic at times, or just, you know, the character you're playing yet, by the way, I think this is a gift. My wife has. I always tell her when I wanna flat her the most that I think you guys having a very similar thing, which even she's the bad guy. Kristen you're like I'm kind of rooting for kind of like her. That's like a really unique gift to have. In fact, it's a, it's a role generally only reserved for men were main. Get to be breaking bad or you know, an answer in a weird way in a comedic anti hero, good. Then you're pulling it off and women are supposed to be likeable and not this. I'm not a fan of likability. Yeah. I mean I am well as a human being, but as of viewer or as an actor, I think likeability is highly overrated. But I really think that a fundamentally what it is, is that you can identify with in terms of the character of Selina Meyer with her desire, or motivation, you know. And, and with her frustration it's very valid her frustration. She may be nuts, and she is not, but her frustration and what she's up against is very understandable, in my view people are pushing her back down. A woman who hasn't been given a in her mind of fair, shake actually, she has been given a fair shake. You know, she also has a lot of opportunity. She's a woman of affluence, etc. Etc. However, she still a woman, and, and that, that sucks too in the world of politics. Br you happy with the ending. I'd love the end. Yeah, I thought it was so poignant calling for Gary. Yeah. I loved it. I was as proud of that episode of as all of them, actually, in my might be my favorite. It really summed it all up for me perfectly, and I think it kind of had a in a weird way kind of a hopeful end. And do you take some pride in the fact that like it's by far the best cast ever of comedians? I take great pride in that fact the benches. So absurdly deep on that show out, Regis. We, we've had great casting directors over the years. And luckily, great actors coming in and sort of delivering and lots of actors, you've never met before who just sort of killed it. And I, I don't know. I've we've, we've lucked out in that department. And so there's a focus for sure on doing good work, but there's a huge amount of joy that drives that focus okay? You've changed my life. Rarely does of movie change your behavior going forward for the rest of your life, and I want you to know that every time we've ever received a massage at our residents. You carry carry the table for you, and I generally have to fight them to do, so sometimes they probably walk away offended like, I'm chauvinist. I don't think they can carry their table. But I will say after. Enough said I was like, man. I've been I've watched someone lug, a big table on this is preposterous. I'm six three. It should be carrying that table. And now I just do I insist an I. You have those nice manners, what a wonderful movie, I loved that movie so much. It's so great to make that movie. And Gandolfini was just beautiful to be around. Yeah. He really was. But surprisingly, not confident really. Yes. That shocking. Yeah. If I really endearing to someone who's. So fantastically, good. Will you know how he was in the movie that was sort of close to who he was as a person? Yeah. Sort of a soft guy sweetheart as hard. Yeah. Bless him. Yeah. Bless him with with, you know, embarrassed to be an actor. I think he some men have that I've noticed from presumably women have to. But I certainly know men who feel like it's a weird, like it's not masculine exemplary, exactly. I think there is an element of that. Can I can I tell you with fury? I have what is the cumulative feedback ban about your finale, people like it? Yeah. It's been very positive, which I'm really happy about. But even if it hadn't been I wrap my arms around at that so much. I liked it. Right. It's been very positive. Okay. So I have a theory that I just launched a couple of weeks ago because of the game of thrones. Finale, you watch game of thrones? Do not. You do not. Okay. Well, a lot of people had some negative stuff to say about the finale, and I was thinking about it, and I and I wanna ask them like what, what did you want to happen? He didn't like what happened? What did you want to happen and people, I don't know. I guess, but will you quickly come to find out there was nothing made specifically wanted to happen? What I think, happens in people don't recognize is, they're just mourning the loss of this thing. They loved for years in it's going away. It's a break-up. There's no version of a break-up that you're gonna love, you know, very rare where you go, like, oh, perfect break-up in, I just think in general, like it's just very sad to have loved something for eight years. And didn't know that you'll not ever. Enjoy a new thing. Maybe it's very hard to like the end of something you love maybe, so. Yeah, it's position to not work, but we loved ending of veep. So you have maybe it wasn't that good show after. Yeah. Because it's only figured out yet. That's the big takeaway, folks. Julianne so flattered that you came. Thank you. I adore you do. You remember meeting me in Jackson Hole, or you do. Yeah. We are in that restaurant that cute restaurant that has really good shop sale. It's I don't remember that as being one of my best interactions, because, again, the stakes were so high for me 'cause I was so excited to tell you how much I love you. Don't worry, you, you didn't do anything wrong or ill time. I just remember because your wife, Kristen was there, I boys, too young, but I just remember either Charlier Henry new Kristen from I probably, yeah. And they're like. Things those things of them meeting somebody famous and flipping out right? That's what I remember is like guys cool, it calmed down. And that's what he was doing to you about. Right. You'll are kill sad. Weirdness. Yeah. Yeah. Can we play father stepdaughter and stepfather? Yes. Okay. I do. I call. Stepdad slash lover. That's right. Do you remember that movie that Jeremy Irons, he was in that movie? And it starts with a D but I forgot the name of it. And he fucks his son's wife. It's extraordinary and his son to tell you the area. It's a pretty good movie. I'm going to walk my memory. Well, maybe I shouldn't tell you because this, it's okay ding moment. Okay. On something happens. You can't even believe it. Give them. Don't tell me we're going to watch it. Yeah. In you'll watch vampire. No, I'm not I'm not watching the vampire one roadhouse to watch roadhouse. Actually really looking forward to that. It's amazing. Okay. I definitely will. All right. I love ice. Thank.
"julia louis dreyfus" Discussed on Armchair Expert with Dax Shepard
"And to this day, I've lived in LA, twenty five years, ten of which in a one bedroom apartment, Santa Monica, that I could have left years before I had made enough money to leave there. And I just couldn't get myself to leave there because that was like the longest I live somewhere. And now I'm on like fifteen years in the same house. Yeah. So I'm twenty four years in the same house, by the way. Oh, you are. Oh, yeah. I keep toying with leaving. But I'm not. Yeah. But the one thing I will say, though, in defense of my parents, the school system when I was in relaunch Cup was very different. I was in school, and they were very, very ahead with math. Now, I was in maybe first or second grade, then and the reading was incredibly behind, there was virtually no reading. So what happened was after school? My parents would tutor me and I have very fun memories of that. Okay. Yeah. My mom we did a lot of these Reader's Digest was putting out a thing for kids. So we did a lot of reading, and then my stepdad taught me my milk Asian tables. He made a dance and a song, and we would dance around the room singing multiplication tables guy. Yeah. He was cool. You got pretty lucky for the stepdad lottery. Yeah. I did. Yeah. Now did you develop any weird stuff around this period? Now, I developed a ton of weird ticks and rituals in either do everything twice. And I stayed there until I started smoking cigarettes when I was like fifteen that'll do it. Do you still smoke? No, no, no. It's been fourteen years, is it very hard to quit incredibly hard to quit smoker. I was yeah. Not a heavy smoker. But I did smoke enough enough so that it was bad for me. Hersher. Sure any about, I think one would be enough. I have that opinion of you. And I'm trying to think of why I do that. She said I spent she did. Smoke. A little French thing. I don't know. Maybe I give off a cool vibe on. We all the only cool people Smith's. Right. That's why more than they wish smoking was good for you because it's an amazing prop. I couldn't agree more. I will tell you. My grandmother was a smoker and in alcoholic, and she also wore a perfume called youth do by Estee Lauder. Very strong pungent old. Yeah. And the combo like scotch and cigarettes, and perfume sends me into a reverie. I love it. So I adore if I go by somebody's smoking on the sidewalk, I will admit that I will inhale as always. You like the smell do now D, how is to grow up in my experience was. It was very conservative. When I go, okay, okay, 'cause I was a little girl, there in the seventies, and we're talking Nixon, and I it's very insular town much the way, Los Angeles is to show business DC is to politics, a company town. It's very company, and in conservative. It's a southern place, and I went to a very conservative school girls girls. Yeah. Which by the way, I'm an advocate for. I think that's a great idea. There's a lot of benefit to single sex education for girls in particular. But this particular school when I was there was very conservative in the benefit, as I understand it. Correct me if I'm wrong is that like you're allowed to be your true self without any concern of whether you're getting approval or not from boys. There's no that dynamic of life. I don't know if I'd say true self, but. Say drew her, there's more of an opportunity to be assertive, and a powerful favorite Kaz girls will downplay how smart they are in public schools. Right. They'll downplay how funny they are anything that could potentially humiliate. Yes, the white boy is avoided. Right. I think so too. Certain extent. Yeah. I think girls sort of our demure too. I mean women do it. You know, you see it all the time. Yeah. Yeah. Now, I wonder because I have two little girls. How are they foreign six? Let's. Let's. There's the most fun, delicious. Yummy been saying this, though, every age they've been at, but this feels really good. It's only gonna get better F y which is mind blowing, but it's true. Well, some pointed out that there's many things that as a guy don't even consider because you're trapped in locked in your own perspective, but growing up in an elementary school. There's photos all over the top of the classroom, and it's like George Washington and Abe Lincoln. And maybe it's Einstein, and it's Isaac Newton in, you just subconsciously. You're absorbing like oh, everyone important is a man. Well, not just that, but there are white, man, there are white, ma'am. So in all girls school were their pictures of women up. I mean was it? I don't remember that. I don't remember a lot of talk of female empowerment. This was the seventies, I'll the only question I have remaining about that is. How do you date if you go to an all girls school choice school that are brought their school? How often do you get to co mingle cross pollinate not a lot? What I would think not right now is a year Karan, there are dances. And then there was school play. School play. That was a mutual school play. Yes. Yes. Were you boy, crazy at all or no? Yes, you were. Yes. I mean looking back on it, I would say, yes, I mean, I was kind of obsessive about, you know, certain boys to my detriment. I think really yes in what way. Do I have to pay you for this session is? I think I was a little too willing to go along with whatever they wanted, and I wish I had been a little more in tune with my own desires, but makes sense. People aren't talking about anything like that. When I was in school, at least at this school, they weren't, I mean, we knew how babies were made there was some sort of sex Ed class. Don't ask me, I can't even remember but very limited. But there was no talk about your own body, and how to man, you know, none of that, right? The pill that points not very old. There's all these things that are all about to happen are happening has been around that was in the sixties came to pass. Yes, I'm so embarrassed. I thought it was the seventies now you can add it that no we'll know. Her favorite thing is the every time I'm wrong to maybe I'm wrong. No, no, no, you're probably right. This segment at the end of this, where I check all the facts while check. And I hope he's wrong. Anyways, my point being is you are kind of at the vanguard of this transition, where women are now actually going to have careers. It's going to be less expected that. You're just gonna find a mate, who's going to provide for you like that? That's all kind of starting to happen. I think maybe. So you've got like one foot in both sides. Because like my mother was raised just get a husband that's already number one, even get a degree. That's just so that you're a better conversationalist for him, right? I mean, that's the worst Senate. I think it's true, though, right rally true. But. Oh. Damage. Happy. Then I think shortly thereafter, it's like you're gonna need to support yourself that became kind of more the mantra in the eighties for kids. So, so at any rate, you've found your way to northwestern. Dead. Yes. Which of all these schools that are fancy. It's the one I seem to be most drawn to. And for good reason, it's a great place. It's at mid west thing, man. You can't beat it. Yeah. I think I'm from that's my backyard as people that are there, my people. And I believe in it. I really do. I love that school are younger son goes there now. And it's a much better school now than it was when I was there. But even. So I mean, the people that I met their only God, it change my life completely. There's a effervescence to that place and students, and the friends that I made that really just sort of completely changed my life. Well, when you say earlier that you like stories where someone has basically a an epiphany or revelation or a lens chain. Oh, yeah. Would you say for you, that was one of those, I would say so? Yeah, I did have this feeling when I got. There. I felt like I could do anything. I don't know that I actually thought those words in my head, but looking back on it. Oh, things are shifting. Things are shifting were there people that you were like. Oh, wow. This like the sky is kinda the limit it like, oh, young women are starting to be comedic forces, and it's being embraced for me. I was in junior high and high school when SNL I started an I definitely felt like those were my people. Right. Right. I stayed up late on Saturday nights to watch it. And I couldn't believe what I was seeing was in a red -able to watch this early shows. They were pushing against the man. Yeah. They it was very cool in a revolt. He airy revolted. Yes. Yeah but not revolt team. But revolt, for sure. Yeah. With the big, big capital lie. I think that's part of it. Sustained power just a bit anarchist. How do I word? It hasn't it has an enter our anarchist Cronista, Anna Karenina, Anna. Karenina. It's like Anna Karenina.
