Our Alternative Academy Awards The Oscars Show
"Guys. Welcome to a very special conversation. Nations show about the Academy Awards but not just any Academy Awards are Academy Awards. were changing things up in the big picture this week. We've invited wisely from the New York Times we think for being here. Thanks for having me. Three Person Person Academy that makes us the Grammy Selection Committee. Hopefully less fraught less racist racist sexist and complete Taylor swift at Ed. Sheeran her part of my mom and I want the academy to tell the truth about who it is fun. Fact Taylor swift and Ed Sheeran had movie moments in the last twelve months. If you recall cheering yesterday Taylor Swift. Of course Miss Americana could forget. we're not going to be nominated for you said Miss Americana Either GonNa cats. That was yeah. That's very generous of you sir. I've locked that out we. We're not talking about that on this. PODCAST CAST now. We got the part right. Okay guys so every year the Oscars come around get very angry because they don't represent all the movies that we want to to be celebrated this year I would say it's been an unusually positive Oscar year in terms of nominations. However we got stuck in this conversation about why are there no female directors in the best director category? Why are there so few actors of color? Why are there so few uncut gems nominations are there so many things here we may? They disagree with that. We will discuss. I'm I'm your evolving. I'm evolving exactly the way to put it all evolving. Wesleyan a minute can you guys. Just give me coming some big picture feelings about where the Oscar nominating process is before we dig into our own awards well Without going into the Math Jeff on how the nomination determined at least in the best picture category whatever they did to make them less foreign needs to change because in addition just like I just wrote a piece for the paper Abou a complicated problem I have with. This year's show is the first time more. I'm I feel like the homogeneity among the best picture nominees just superficially is Kinda monotonous to me. What do you mean but up I mean basically what I mean. Is that lake. There are nine move. Eight movies about white people And like the the white experience yes there is a wide experience. PODCAST is often expanding on and in one from Korea or South Korea. And I I like all of these movies except for one and a half of them and so so. The thing that I am annoyed about is that there isn't it is not as though there's one movie that didn't get nominated that should have that also featured Richard people who are not white so my problem is more of an industry. Problem in the Oscars of course is a symptom of this larger thing. And so I'm Kinda just. I went back just to do some math on on on. How many movies among the nominees for best picture since they expanded ten were set the present and usually I mean the thing? That's thrilling about the best picture. Nominees every year is that you do get some really interesting story that gets told about the movie industry but also just the movies and something about this collection of movies as a collection as a class of films kind of bores me and but again like I like most of the nominees and so I don't know it's a weird place but they they have to change them. I think the man is part of this like even I don't like Hustler's that much but you this. This group of movies needs it. Needs it needs needs like a blindside. It needs a district District nine yeah. It needs a district night but you think that so. That's I think it's math don't you because don't what's the one film that would have resolved some of that feeling. Is that the farewell. Like what is it. I don't even see that's the weird thing also. I don't even care care what it was because I don't like any of the alternative. This is weird year for for the solution to this problem. There isn't one. There's no main waves. Waves would be a movie that would that would be more interesting but every year since they expanded ten has had just more interesting stuff. It I have a theory and it's not about math and I think your point about math is good and also your point that this is these are eight movies about white people is also important. uh-huh any everything we're about to say is not going to change that but I do just and it's not GonNa Change the industry and it's not GonNa Change. WHO GETS to make movies? Unfortunately but I do wonder if some of it is also like our expectations and our relationship to the nominees because we're used to being dissatisfied and we're used to findings something that to be mad about and since they've gotten to ten and especially in the last couple of years years. There are more movies that I'm excited about that are nominated for best picture. And even this year I would say they're five movies like jazzed about same same here and I'm not used to that and so I do think and and we're part of doing this podcast and talking about the Oscars is arguing talking about what was snubbed. And what the economy isn't representing. and I wonder if some of the boringness is just kind of. I don't know where to put all of that energy for what interesting that I hear that that particular aspect of this year's race though I think is an anomaly. I think there's two reasons for at one. We we just happen to get a couple of films from a couple of people who kind of always make big noisy special films. Martin Scorsese Quentin Tarantino. We got a couple of movies marriage story and the Irishman that probably would not have been financed by any other studio that got a lot more money than they would have gotten and so those movies got pushed up to the top. You know I know you guys probably not huge joker Fans but that's a highly unusual kind of movie to have been made in the way that it was position. Marketed the success that had had and also the parasite thing is. There's just no literally literally no precedent for a movie like this getting this much awareness appreciation potentialities to win The the fact that this is impossible right now is was utterly unpredictable. Even even in September I ran so I think accounting for this year in particular as a bellwether of any kind and is a little bit difficult long term. But the point that you're making one hundred percent right which is that you know. There's a certain kind of movie that still is always going to get made in Hollywood and there's a certain kind the movie that it's still really hard to get made that's movies by women's moving movies by filmmakers of color starring people of color about different kinds of experiences in the world. So that's not going to change. I think some of what we're we're GONNA do here accounts for that. I think some of the categories that were creating accounts for that. Yes I think. In general though the public perception of the Oscars is it's a little bit. Stodgy it's a little bit boring self-satisfied but also it doesn't really understand what's fun about movies no well that's part of I mean to the degree agree that there is a selection committee. It's People's self consciousness about their with. They want their tastes to be. Yes yeah and that to me is part of what I'm sensing about this group. The best picture nominees though I feel like I do feel like despite the fact that I actually could not subtract one of these movies or there's a ten slot at the tenth movie like what I mean. You could additive movie proud interesting lake. Ed Lee said in the president and at least about the thing that is seemingly the problem by gathering these movies together race Which member of the knives out family is each? That's a good game that somewhere. Oh I like that. We don't have to answer that right now but just trying to think of the Google anyway I but I but I also think that part of the problem. I think some of the things that I'm feeling is this. I mean I don't know it seems like a revenge against the way things seem to be going. Otherwise yes but you can't prove that a and I mean I'm arguing against my own myself right now but it's unprovable. It's just a feeling that I have a feels like every time they do these blind surveys of these academy members. There's always somebody who's like well. I don't think we have a diversity problem. I just think the movies that Star Wall you know other people uh-huh aren't as good as the ones right or even just that was nice. But it's not an Oscar film which covers all manner of sentence and that shows up in. Everyone knows that there is an Oscar film which there's been an Oscar film since like nineteen thirty nine like that's part of the problem. Yeah I don't know when it got so not. How did you no one team seventeen despite how much I love? It smells ker movie. It is twenty when I was fifteen. I did not think that was pejorative. In fact I thought that that was was meaning really really meaningful. My perception of it is changed or self conscious about it. That's an parasite actually wins. I'm going to feel really freaked out. Because does that mean that I'm basic because is the movie that I want to win also won the Academy Award. I just called aging. Yeah well I don't know I don't feel the way by moonlight. Yeah now more so feels like the exception and to me even though I mean in a weird way. Here's a good test of this of this question. The departed. I always think about the idea that departed is a best picture winner. You know what I mean. I think if the departed was directed by Guy Ritchie though it would have had no chance at the Oscars yes of course. The Scorsese. Only the Scorsese UNISOM did that but just looking at it. As a movie rate lake. That was the best picture of what was it. Two thousand six six. I just it just kind of. It's a funny thing. It's a funny thing that wasn't i. I wasn't the best movie of that year. Obviously are not obvious. It's funny that you bring that up. We actually just talked talked about that. Exact movie a couple of days ago show in that movie yeah. It's a totally fun and slightly. You need us. Yes Oh sure. Yeah what what other the way. I don't know actually actually. Actually what's going on with Matt Damon in that movie. Congratulations him okay. So if we were going to change James the telecast a little bit What what there was talk of this last year? About modifying the telecast. But I don't want to modify the telecast per se but I think that there's some categories that maybe we don't needed some categories and maybe we do need okay. I'm personally I just don't believe that. The shorts need to be in the Academy Awards No one watches them their unseen by the by the public at large. Are You mad at that. You want the short sustain gas. I do why I don't know but the idea. We will not a part of the rest of the conversation but is that really how it works. I mean I'm but you're talking to the wrong person and a win aware like I actually wish they had brought. I want to see the best bluegrass album winter. I WANNA see best. Okay I WANNA see best. Best Ja- best traditional jazz album. I WanNa see that person person win. You're in dangerous territory women. I personally would like there to be a nine hours. Oscar ceremony right. Amanda wants to get through this fairly quickly vision show. You're saying it's its own not work of art. But it's least its own entity that needs to have a start and a finish on a structure and momentum and energy we can't just like trot got out every single movie clip that Sean is like for the past seventy years and then let's talk about this cinematography. I'm and this one's like to the telestrator up with the old Oscar broadcast that were nobody really. There was no Internet for people to run to and complain. I mean it just ended when it ended and it was full of supporting clips. I mean for a lot of America. They didn't know who Pauline Collins was. They wanted to see like surely Valentine. What does that clip? This is good so you get a clip Pauline Collins Acting Shirley. Valentine know what you get is a weirdly spliced moment of an actor doing the most over the top contacts list part of a movie you have. If you don't know where Iran Iran remember. What Julia Roberts Best Actress Clip West Pretty woman? It was her singing kiss in the Jacuzzi.
"julia roberts" Discussed on Ellen on the Go
"Once you buy a house. Yeah they're good now that you the house to get to be able to buy them a house exactly proven yourself from. I'm going to be honest with you. I saw star Star Wars feeling back in around nineteen seventy seven and a half now is one of the new ones the first three then I dropped out for all those other ones they made and then when the new the new ones came a couple years ago. I've been all over. They are fantastic film data. Try again time. I've also gone back and watch the ones in the middle that I didn't watch the those ones. Yeah yeah this is great. He's new ones our incredible. Have you taken Sarah. Kids would love never fun. And there's a great female hero and it's just yeah right message and you know it's great. Adam Sandler I have loved Adam Sandler. Since he was on Saturday night live in his twenties. Agree I just. I've I've never love that Guy Right. I also loved him as a guest on the David Letterman show. Yep He was always very respectful always wanted to do well always a little bashful Asheville a little shy. That's why I love him. Yeah and always had brace stories about his family and his is very close to his dad and I have to tell you his best. In my humble opinion since Letterman has gone off the Air Adam sandlers best talk show appearances in my opinion. Have been on the Ellen show. I think I think that's right and and I'm sandler first of all. He makes great movies and I love that. He has sort of this this group of people that he makes his movies with and he's very loyal to them and they sort of move around around to all these films with them and and when these people come on the show to talk about these films they all talk about how much fun they have making the film and making you. You know making films isn't easy. You GotTa leave family and you gotta go out of town and Adam Sandler tries to make it a fun event to bring your family out of town to make a film with him. So that all the downsides of making a film become a plus side and I didn't know where Adam sandlers from but Adam sandlers from mm-hmm New Hampshire right. You're up in New Hampshire and they're eighty was from New York. I thought so too. I thought I figured he was from Long Island or something. But he's from New Hampshire and he talks about how his childhood bedroom is still his childhood bedroom and has been sort of untouched. And here he is talking to Ellen about that. I saw in the sixty minutes on you. It was really great. Great profile or shocking. Believe that happened to to be on sixty minutes yes. I grew up watching sixty minutes. Such a big deal in my house to watch. I would watch it. I thought it was good for my brain a little my parents would make me watch it get sixty minutes menaces on yeah I was on it and I didn't see it i. I didn't see it because I don't like watching myself. You know I but my my wife told me it was was good. It was very good and your mother must have been thrilled because you. She's a big part of it. You're US intervention. Most of the time they went back to my hometown sixty you see made us and they came to the house. I grew up in and I called my mother and they want to come. I was really trying to get my mother. You really got to go to my house. I said it'd be nice to to see where you grew up at him and I said Oh man and my mother. I know she's going to be and I called my mother up. I said my sixty minutes and say oh I gotTA start cleaning now psychotic about it but she was great.

The Life of Mike Nichols
"Ask Carter and Sam Kashmir join us now they wrote together an oral history of Mike Nichols it's called life isn't everything. Mike Nichols as remembered by one hundred and fifty of his closest friends Sam Ash. Thanks for being here. Just thanks for having US thank you. What was was the genesis of this project? Well after Mike's Death I was at Vanity Fair and wanted to do an oral history as much as we can get away with the magazine and ask had worked as a PA.. With Mike. And I knew him mm somewhat and so I thought it best to join forces and so we did this for the magazine originally and it was so interesting and there was so much material that it just kind of presented itself as a book kind of instantly. As soon as we saw together in the magazine they must have been painful to have to cut. Had it down to magazine size well. The piece was originally assigned at six thousand. Words ran at eleven thousand and still not a word practically about his theater career hear about his time at the compass. Players is a founding member of Improv. I mean there's so much still on the table Ash you're very lucky person having worked as the PA.. What did you work on? I worked on Charlie Wilson's war. That was my first job out of college. I was so upset on hangs Julia Roberts. What was that often? Yes Oh right. Of course. It was a big movie so very often. You felt very distant from where the the real real action was taking place but still. I really feel blessed who've been able to be as close as I was. So you mentioned Charlie. Wilson's war my immediate reaction. Shen is Oh my God. That's Mike Nichols. Also the thing that I think people don't even fully appreciate now is just how incredibly accomplished. He was and for so long so if we could just kind of begin with his I think I real fame fame was with Nichols and may but before we go into each of those stop. Just take us through because I think people may be associated him with the graduate and a couple of other major projects. But let's just list some some of them so people have a sense. Well there was the great success of the Nichols. and May Elaine. May and Mike Nichols as a comedy team. which kind of transformed formed Comedy really and Mike as Director. He and Neil Simon joined forces and he really kind of in a way. Reinvented invented Simon. For Neil Simon. You know with barefoot in the park and the odd couple and as of film director his first film was the Richard Richard Burton Elizabeth Taylor. Who's afraid of Virginia? Woolf which frank rich other people believed to be the maybe the best reputation of a of a stage play for film ever the graduate which was second film his second film shocking. JFK transformative you know and Oscar worthy. And then there's all all the stage work Tom Stoppard's the real thing David Raves hurly-burly streamers. Yeah camelot and S- Pamela camelot idle. I mean it's kind of prodian extraordinary range of of gifts that that he I mean. He Directs Spam Lot. I I think two years after doing angels in America for HBO. I mean that's range. I don't WanNa go too much into his early life by. I think it's important to point out that this was a person who arrived here. Didn't speak English. Not as first language goes to the University of Chicago right he meets Elaine. May let's start there. What was it that made that pairing so extraordinary? What did they do? You said that they revolutionized comedy Elaine may was the dangerous genius that entered Mike Nichols life and and changed him she was kind of a combustion engine and he was the steering wheel a little bit. Steve Martin told us the first time. When you listen to those records those bits or you know the sketches? which is he said that the that I heard irony brock kind of modernity to comics situations and things that comedians did not go? Nya such as the cost of funerals was is the time of Jessica Mitford the the American way of death. And you know I mean these are weighty subjects adultery a- adultery right the previous generation of comics from the fifties where people who came from Vaudeville and the Borscht Belt Nichols and may had a theater background around. And you know both the classical repertory but also as Improv actors and by the way they're also both at analysis and brought a level of psychological acuity to comedy that really hasn't been seen before let's just a clip of them from that period some day Arthur. You'll get married and you'll have suit of your own and honey when you do. I only pray that they make us suffer the way you. That's all I pray to mothers. Okay mom thanks for calling you very sarcastic. I'm doing my best now. You call me on on the telephone I me. I'm sorry I'm sorry that bothered you and look I didn't make you feel bad. Are you kidding I feel awful. Oh honey if I could believe that I'd be the happiest mother it's true. What do you think I feel crummy Arthur honey? Why don't you call me sweetheart? That's the one bit. That's kind of in a way close to auto biography at least for Mike that was sort of his mother in a way and and he had a difficult very difficult relationship with her. Are you know after the death of his physician. Father they were really plunged into poverty into serious poverty in in New York. He I used to have to go in the olden days to the Museum of TV and radio to watch these old clips. But now I I'm imagining that. You can see all of this on Youtube. Yeah there's a lot of great stuff and Youtube I encourage people to also look up there The award for total mediocrity that they did at the Emmys when you're in the nineteen fifties so that's just breathtaking. I just actually making fun of their own mirror. You know I mean they're making fun of show business with a successful right away. They were both part of this. Very heavy kind of avant-garde guard group called the compensator in Chicago and the two of them just clicked as their manager. Jack rollins later said there. They were like ham and eggs. They were a local will hit first then they came to New York. He signed them up his clients started booking them at local nightclubs and they were hit right away and then they started going non Jackpot and omnibus and they were hit nationally. So yeah it was. It was really just like that. It was that quick. How does it get from that to? Who's afraid of Virginia? Woolf well well they had a great success Nichols and may on Broadway at the Golden Theatre was an evening with Nichols in May ostensibly directed by Arthur Penn.. You know but not really and Elaine was just sort of tired of doing it and in a way was the comedic version of of the Beatles. Breaking up people were just. I just chop fall in. You know it's tragic. Yes yes yeah. It was kind of a loss in a way They would wind up working together. Other eventually you know as a screenwriter and director but but Mike it kind of put him in in the wilderness for a while He was really at see if we rely on a little bit. When he's got that evening on Broadway with a lame the theater? They were in shared an alley with a theater where her camelot was on stage with Richard Burton and they would kind of hang out after after the show and that's how he kind of got to know him and it was. It's essentially through that meeting Richard in that alley and threw him Liz. They were the ones who hired for Virginia Woolf. When you think about the collaborators he had the people he got to work with you mentioned Arthur panel the you know lately Richard Burton Elizabeth Taylor Dustin in Hoffman Jewels pfeiffer on carnal knowledge? It's just you know on and on Meryl Streep the biggest names and your subtitle is is Mike Nichols as remembered by hundred and fifty of his closest friends. Did He. Frequently form friendships during these professional collaborations was. He's one of those the people that everybody felt like they knew. And we're close to make exactly this actors and and many was writers really kind of fell in love with him. I mean we could have called the book seduced by Mike Nichols you know Natalie. Portman really wept recalling. Her work with Mike Sue now. Yeah and that was much later and the closer yes. Yes but also they did stage work together so they were totally devoted to him. I I mean Tom Stoppard. For example said I think his advice memorial you know he thought to himself who is there to to write for he so he was kind of an Avatar to all of these. She's tremendously gifted complicated. People and the friendships were very deep. And Very Real Maureen Dowd. Your colleagues said that he was a null coward figure with the Jersey Kaczynski past and unlike a lot of other people who had a really horrible childhoods he did not kind of wear it on his sleeve and he we've talked about it and didn't particularly want to spend a lot of time thinking about it and I I mean I think this is kind of the key to his career. Longevity Eddie is that he was. Somebody really always wanted to be living in the moment. And kind of looking forward to the next project even up until the end of his life when he had several things that were in progress including masterclass terrence. McNally's play that he was gonNA adapt for. HBO With Meryl Streep. Yeah I mean in a way. Our title is taken from a a model of Mike's life isn't everything but it's kind of a misnomer because it was everything to him. You know in a way I mean he could be difficult to and and some of the people in the booker occur quite open about yes. That Emma Thompson is one right exactly Thompson who who adored him. You know said we're not talking about some saint here so you know and in fact Mike toward the end of his life felt that he had been cruel to people and had betrayed others. You know but he did develop a music also about someone who sort of as much of a genius as he was you know he was also complicated difficult cat and felt like there were people to apologize to. Some people presumably wouldn't talk to you Elaine. May of course wouldn't what about Diane Sawyer and were there other people who you pursued and just said you know what no now. We did approach. Diane we wouldn't have done this actually without her been addiction you know and she gave us the same response that initially initially Sam Beckett gave to digital bear you know which is. I'm not going to stop you but I'm also not going to help you all that much. But when push came to shove and we needed the people such as Meryl Streep she was helpful behind the scenes and Elaine. She did. Give us a blurb. Although we didn't use it and the blurb facetiously officiously said well I I would tell you all I know. But they're going to pay me millions of dollars to write my memoirs something. You'll never do you know. She meant it as kind of a joke before before we go one final question what do you each of you. Thank was Nicholas's greatest work and then also so perhaps a personal favourite may be less known or just something new especially leaden. And why. Let's start with you ash. I would say probably the graduate. It's not the most original choice but I just have seen the movie so many times and I think that it it just has held up so much better than a lot of other youth movies of the time that it was sort of lumped in with that plus the the comedy albums is sort of where my original enthusiasm for him started. But you know I I think catch twenty. Two for example is a movie that has not really gotten. It's do. I think it's actually kind of a brilliant movie that was overshadowed by Mash at the time though it is I see no reason why the existence of Mash prevent people from enjoying it today not an easy novel to adapt to know and but I think him and Buck Henry and we did a credible job adapting it. Sam will I mean. It's so hard to choose. My mother would choose working girl in or Silkwood you know an but are you. Seeing your mother would be wrong. My mother never wrong But for me it's you know the stage work is kind and of extraordinary. I mean the Philip Seymour. Hoffman death of a salesman at the end of life using that was really just is an extraordinary unearth accomplishment. Really it brought him Full Circle Because that streetcar with the two original productions that changed his life really all right. I'm hoping that this interview. If nothing else forces everyone to go to youtube everyone to go and stream every single thing that Mike Nichols did that was available. He was such an incredible credible talent ash. Carter Sam cash. Thank you so much for being here. Thank you so much thank your new book is called. Life isn't everything. Mike Nichols as remembered by one hundred

He's he said he just didn't know however there was one black woman in the meeting when this was brought up and she says Harriet Tubman was a black woman and the guy goes well. That was so long. Nobody's going to know that. This is the president leave. Leave a movie studio and tell you a little bit of insight into the fact that a lot of them are not brilliant and be they really. Don't give the public much credit. They think most people are stupid. Well and it shows the complete wherever that person went to school to complete Failing school system that he that he attended to not know who Harriet Tubman was. Yeah I think that's what I would put that more on him. Aguirre your failure so you should have picked that information somewhere. It was so long. Nobody's GonNa Different. Who's it's amazing? But I mean what grade we learn about Harriet Tubman. I'm thinking second grade third elementary school early early early Um Though people stupid people can make into the top. Clearly you take a walk through this building.

Joker review: Love it or hate it
"Of film that did really hot though that would be joker and it is polarizing films of the year it is true a love it or hate it type of film and I'm finding myself on the ladder side of that Ledger I went into this folks expecting that it's going to be where the best films of the year and I couldn't wait for it and I love the fact that clearly taught phelps is paying them is to score says and had said that taxi driver in comedy ric huge references and reference points for him but as I tweeted in my review I said tops pays homage and Aaron Charles is a good guys a loyal listener the podcast he immediately corrected me the tweets that have paid them is it's a derivative I'm like that's true tops is no Martin Scorsese he's making taxi driver King Comedy Without the Intelligence in the witch and the subtlety now the story is supposed to be this forever alone in a crowd failed comedian Arthur fleck seeks connections he walks the streets of Gotham city Arthur wars to masks the one he pays for his day job as a clown and the guys he x any futile attempt to feel like he's part of the world around him isolated bullied and disregarded by society flack begins a slow descent into madness as he transformed into the criminal mastermind known as the joker sounds great but it's not the first thirty minutes or so I enjoyed because I could appreciate Lawrence share the director of photography clearly again paying monster Scorsese's taxi driver literally adult movie theater they show in the early minutes you see the garbage piling up feels like they're trying to evoke the taxi driver of the seventies but you know taxi driver even though it's a very dark film and it's an urban nightmare there's still moments of Levity Q. Albert Brooks who is hilarious in the movie documents stool pigeons there's still romance you know when score says he was feted by the Afi with a lifetime achievement award Julia Roberts introduced a clip and it's a wonderful clip where Travis has I picking up betsy and it shows you know for a guy who doesn't always get a claim for having a playful touch it's a really sweet scene and the way that Travis picks her up he says you know I think it was beautiful whoa ever seen and he says when he's going to pick her up and she'll be on time and I'm sure you will and it's a really nice scene and your member of the fact that Travis has a Mohawk and ends up gunning down a bunch of thugs moments like that and it's you know there's a glimmer of upside there's none of that era joker it is a relentlessly bleak thoroughly unpleasant film experience you know comedy has great humor in the movie I mean it's a really funny movie within the fact that Rupert Pumpkin is a guy who is a very painful isolated self-loathing character but it's still really funny I mean the fact he's so obsessed with Jerry Lewis talk show hosts that eventually feels compelled to kidnap him there's a dark undercurrent always but there's some big time lapse in the way that rupert is just so delusional in this film though there's none of that I mean it is just a painful experience it's about as subtle as a sledgehammer to the Groin and even though Joaquin Phoenix is getting Oscar buzz and and I do is an excellent actor I think the performance owes a little bit to his character into the master Kinda feel like it's a you know he's almost Pankaj to that character and listen he's a talented guy it's also always performance at the Oscars love I mean they love these showy flamboyant performances he's got a bunch of ticks the over laughing it's very flamboyant it's not today it's bad acting is pointing out that the Oscars love this kind of stuff so I don't even know if he deserves a best actor nomination but I can guarantee you we'll get nominated for one and he's certainly an intense actor and gave it two and a half maple leafs that was right after the movie the more I've thought about it I'm giving it only two maple leafs like I said it's just too derivative and just to pleasurable of film experience and there's obviously but other conversations about it people are mentioning is it a commentary mental illness and the fact that mentally ill people are being ignored is it a film it's inciting violence a natural born killers which I thought a lot actually watching them which I think is an excellent movie and I liked a lot Owen gleiberman right favourite film critics he championed natural born killers and unfortunately for me he's actually repeating jokers well though he next article which he said everyone is very polarized by being the was polarize similar decades said people either loving or hating it made a ton of money doc tober opening ever in terms of rotten tomatoes in this won best picture at the Venice Film Festival the Golden Line which means it could be an Oscar contender but even a good article from hr it's got fiber he was saying that some voters have said I don't know whether to give it every Oscar or to give it a Razzie like that's that's exactly the way we're looking at with this film because is so polarizing and people are just walking out there arguing about immediately in terms of rotten tomatoes sixty percent is the average above that is above average below that is below average Chris only sixty nine percent but audiences liked it they gave it a ninety percent so ultimately it was not a film for me it's not a film I would recommend Joe I don't know if you saw it but the floor is yours what say you I and I was Gonna go see it until you told me just how bleak and pleasurable it was and I was GonNa see last night and I thought I don't really need to if it's just GonNa be that dark I'm sure walking Phoenix is really really good in it but if it's just someone falling down a staircase in slow motion for two hours I'm just like I I got my the baseball team to do that I don't need to watch that in the cinema for two hours absolutely right you I mean there's just nothing as I said you think of a dark movie you love this year's big movie lovers I'm that there's still moments of levity there are still moments of light amidst the darkness and the comedy of the film is making this isn't that this is just Oh he's laughed at ridiculed he punched he finally acts out his violent urges and feel some sort of release and that causes them to do more. I mean it's just like you said Joe I the project and just watch your twins I wouldn't recommend the film too many

Matthew McConaughey | Career Arc
"Is an episode about the the life in the career and the and the essence of Matthew mcconaughey, who is of course, starring in a new movie harmony, Curran's new movie the beach bum which is out in theaters right now, and we're gonna be talking about that movie quite a bit. But before we do that we're going to do what we always do on the show. This is only the second time we've done it. We're going to analyze different stages of an actor or actress or directors career, and we're gonna talk about the breakthrough moment and the personal pinnacle for each of the three of us. And then we'll talk about the big movie that's out right now. So guys before we get started. I wanna talk. A little bit about just your personal connection to Matthew mcconaughey who has been in our lives for a long time perhaps longer than I even realized when I was looking at this guy's career. Amanda, what is your your general relationship to Makaay? Well, like his career goes in phases. And we're gonna talk a lot about I actually don't know how much we'll talk about the two thousands. But you talk about it, Matthew mccown. Hey starred he was a rom com. Idle in the two thousands, and that's a very interesting time in romantic comedies and say not so interesting workwise, but in terms of career arc very interesting time in Matthew mcconnahey career. And that's kind of how I was introduced to him or how he became a part of my life about that. And you about Matthew mcconaughey, but I was very conversant in those romantic comedies. And then I was a culture blogger to during the Kanazawa. So. It's in terms of watching an actor or a public figure reinvent themselves and have a kind of public narrative that we're all participating in real time. He's a really prime example for me. I can't really think of him without thinking of just this not even transformation, but a return to self that he experienced would you say the time as a flat circle, Amanda. Oh my God. Yeah. I would have to at this point. 'cause you all do so often, rob. What about you? I suspect that your your true relationship with with Matt Mack, which is something no in calls him. But I'm gonna call him that occasionally Amish. Micheli? What's your relationship to McConnell, 'cause I I assume it started before Amandus? Yeah. I mean, it started very simply as like I just want to listen to this person say word rest of my life. I mean, I do think he has this my favorite voice like in Hollywood, and possibly, you know, the larger celebrity sphere. I mean, I'm pretty sure my introduction him like most people my age, our age was dazed and confused and just every word that came out of his mouth just sounded beautiful for lack of any other way to put it I think following his career subsequently. I I wanted to ask you guys like the McConnell San's that term sort of implies like a really deep valley in the middle of his career. Like, Matthew mcconnahey is sort of a guy when I started following and writing about entertainment like following the arc of an actor or a celebrity in the low points in the high points like I was always kind of confused by the McConnell, and ideas, like what was he recovering from like, he doesn't really have. A Geely in that sense. Like, I don't think there's one moment. That's like a terrible moment. And it's like literally ninety seconds ago. I remembered that he was once a rested for playing Bongos today. Kid. That's the thing that happened. Right. What a like that will that wasn't the low point. But like, I was I was he's one of the first actors who I sort of perceived as having this media driven sort of rise and fall arc to him. And I could never quite figure out what caused the fall. I guess I bet you have a lot of thoughts say rob have you seen goes girlfriend pass? And or I haven't walls gold, and or forces of nature, and at you know, the back half from two thousand five to two thousand nine he's in a ladder leading man roles that are tough, and they're not gonna romantic comedies, and those are not. In any way, the essence of McConnell as we have come to understand him. And it's an interesting arc- because he basically twenty years later returns to himself. It's an it's an arc that I know flat, circle, blah, blah, blah. I get it. But it really is the Mikan science. I think more means that he. Finds his essence again as opposed to coming from some valley. It's like a a a new expression or somebody say, the, original expression. Will I think it's also about what we deem to be quality versus an meaningful artistic choices versus things that are pop or frivolous. I think particularly in that period that you're talking about Amanda, you basically two thousand five two thousand four Saharan to for the money things kinda start to go a little south there. And he's just making a lot of stuff that is moderately successful. But just not very good. And you know, when he comes back with the Lincoln lawyer and Bernie in killer Joe, and we'll talk about that period seems to turn the ship, and he starts working with filmmakers that he'd worked within the past or people who seem interesting in on the forefront of something. And so I think the McConnell San's, rob, I guess for lack of a better phrases just meant he started doing good stuff again. And I would argue towards the end of this podcast. We're actually in a phase where with the exception of the movie we're going to be talking about at the end. He's actually made. More bad stuff in the last five years than good stuff, and maybe more bad stuff than he did in that fallow, period. But nevertheless, let's go back to the very beginning. Rob you wanted to talk about about days as as sort of breakthrough. So what is it about David Waterson that that enraptured you? I mean, I feel first of all this is there is no need to overanalyze him that movie like this moment. Like he's in days and confused, really ten minutes. Maybe. You know, like just jump right? Like his delivery of the line. I get older they stay the same age. It's like this perfect mixture of like, casual and formal that's what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older they stay same age. He knows the character knows how good align. It is the actor knows how good align. It is. Like, you take a little step forward. Like in that exact moment. Like, I realized that for the first time that he's wearing like salmon colored pants. Ted Nugent t-shirt. It's just this this beautiful transcendent moment that doesn't need to be belabored. But let's does this guy as a star like just right in that moment. And I the other days that I love rewatching he pulls up alongside another car like a burger joint and the two guys in the other car go off Christ immediately like they can't stand him. But the the driver of the other car a young red headed lady who I believe is Marissa Rabin easy is smitten with him. No, I got my own car. Thank listen to stick the car with now get in with us. But that's all right worry about that later. I will see their. You tell them about the new fiesta tap inning at the moon tower. There's going to be fresh kegs. And it's just I would just I would just follow this man, anywhere. And I watching it again like I feel there's a version of dazed and confused like the studio like focus groups like diluted belabored version of the movie that feels compelled to have an actual plot. And like a moral would make his character not like the villain, but like the cautionary tale at the worst case scenario like you don't wanna end up like this guy, actually like dazed is one of the things that makes it great is like it's a high school movie where at least some of the actors look like they could conceivably be in high school. And so it makes it hard to tell like how much older he's supposed to be than the rest of the people. But I I love the way that like his job is working for the city. Like he says that several times doesn't elaborate at all. But like it's kind of he's he's he's kind of lame like part of what makes Ben Affleck's CARA. Actor lame is that he shouldn't be there anymore. Like, he I think he like flunked a he got held back a few grades or something like he shouldn't be hanging out with these people anymore, and it should theoretically be the same for him. But it's not. But even at the end like when they're on a football field, and he gives the speech about like, it's about living L I V. I N like you can take that as like really profound. You can take that as kind of pathetic. Like, there's a version of the movie where like the plot is like the football player trying to decide whether to sign like the promise not to take drugs or whatever. Like that moment. Could be the football player realizing I don't actually want to end up like this person, you know. And if I agreed not fuck up like even twenty percent of the time, and I won't end up like this person. But like the actual movie can't bear to do that to McConnell. Hey, and like McConnell as performance is too. Good to even make you feel like even a little bit pathetic. Like, it's just it's a very fine line and just uncomplicated -ly beautiful thing. But like when you think about it, it's it's just. It's perfect. He's unquestionably one of our most beautiful statutory, rapists. He's just it's amazing. It's amazing how willing we are to forget that that is literally the point of that character is that he is a predator. And it's like, oh what a charming predator? You know, that is really his power like this is the first significant role that he had and it's it's one of his best roles. It's it's like communicates. A lot about the kind of actor that he is even though he's as you said, rob onscreen for so so little Amanda, what did you think of days? Yeah. I agree with you. It's just kind of an instant stardom. I was on a podcast recently talking about Pretty Woman and the power of that movie and a lot of ways it's just you're watching. Julia Roberts become a star in real time. And it's so rare to see someone in one of their first movies just like before we formed. It's kind of like, okay. You know, you are and sodas the director, and you know, how to be on screen, and like I understand the qualities that you're going. Bring to your other roles like you have just you've got star quality from the gecko. And like he clearly does like dazed and confused. It's kind of his first movie or his first big movie. But also definitely the statement for the rest of his career, or at least the successful parts of his career and people don't often figure it out that early. It's true. It's notable though that it takes a few years for him to find real stardom. You know, even though I think anybody who saw it is inconvenient came out. And it was not a huge box office hit. There's something going on with that guy who is that guy. And then he appears in significant roles, but not necessarily the lead role in angels in the outfield, which I'm sure we all know and love, Bobby Wagner. Our producer baseball fan. I'm certain he's seen it Texas chainsaw massacre of the next generation, which quite bad. He has a small role in boys on the side in which is very charming and his smaller but crucial role in Lone Star, which we've talked about on this podcast before. And then comes a time to kill now. If you're listening to the show, you probably know how much I like the John Grisham adaptations of the nineteen nineties. This was a this was a sub genre that Hollywood thrived on over the years. End of the pelican brief is one of your favorites. Pelican brief the firm is one of my favorites. I'm a big fan of the client. Rob you, and I were having a grand old time recounting some of the ridiculousness of time to kill which I had forgotten and yet still feel entertained in compelled by it's actually quite gruesome story. And if you think Waterson is a sleazebag the stuff that happens in time to kill us awful. It's it's it's essentially a courtroom drama about a man who is on trial play by Samuel Jackson and his lawyer as Matthew mcconaughey, and Matthew mcconaughey is playing essentially modern day Atticus Finch person who is like a he starts the movie out of sort of a wastrel like a slick drunk southern courtroom operator. And by the end of the movie, he transforms into this morally righteous profound. Emotionally resonant figure and this movie is really weird. I cannot believe this movie exists, and so intense, and so upsetting and also features a million famous people, Sandra Bullock is essentially McConnell as right hand woman, who's helping him with the case who understands the law significantly better than mccown as character does Samuel Jackson of courses on trial. He plays Billy Ray Cobb. Kevin Spacey is the DA who comes in from out of town and his quite evil for into Frick. Her plays. Matthew kinda his secretary Oliver Platt places legal partner, Donald Sutherland, I believe plays. His father has dropped. It's like it's not as father. But like the lawyer who gave him his start and is now a drunk sort of wasted. Right. His. Protege. His father figure who has his name is is Lucien Wilbanks sheriff some perfect Girish esque southern writing the reason that I chose this movie is his breakthrough is because it's the the first time that McConnell, hey, is in the center of the frame, the whole time the movie lives and dies by him. And because of its preposterousness, I think almost any other actor wouldn't have been able to pull it off. And of course, there's a very very famous speech at the end of this movie that we're gonna listen to right now. I wanna tell you story. Close your eyes. Tell you the story. I want you. Listen to me what you listen to yourselves. Go

"I guess I just wonder for you as a mother, and as an actress to play those scenes was was there one that was most challenging most emotional to do. I think probably, you know, it's a blessing and curse to do scenes emotional scenes by yourself. So probably the police station because I'm by myself. And I'm also with people that I've never met before. I mean, I try to come in a head of time and sort of go like, hi. Yeah. Seeing the movies. You kind of understand. It's like oh. Hi, one o'clock in the morning already. And this is what we're doing. And then for obvious reasons. I think the last thing in the movies, particularly challenging because I'm also an away by myself. And but the great thing at all times was that it was for me for Hawley was all about Ben for me. It was all about Lucas like we had actually found. We'd manifested you know, this alchemy which was a lifetime. I mean, I really feel so close with him. And it was so great a couple of weeks ago. We were in New York doing press and just to to go back to hearing the way he puts thoughts together just brought me so much joy. But when you first signed up for them, we what was I mean? I wonder if the if you notice any patterns in the projects that you personally respond to the most if you know to me, it seems like in Holly there's a little bit of. The era and Brockovich refusing to take no for an answer give up their certain other. I think there's strands that icy. Do you see anything that runs through all the poor? Not really because I don't examine it in that mathematical way, I would be fascinated for someone to tell me that equation. But it's always from satisfaction to Ben is BAC less about rent for Bennis back than satisfaction. But it's all just kind of a feeling in my stomach where I say. I want to be part of this. You kinda know you don't have to sleep on it. Never interesting. I want to mention because you to get a Golden Globe nomination this week for another thing called homecoming, which is great on Amazon prime and from Todd cast. So you know, you you're the best thing that happened in a long time. So your first role as a series regular on TV every episode directed by Sam smell. It's at the vanguard of the shows that are bringing back the half hour drama. What does it tell us about the state of film in the state of TV that even the person may be most synonymous with the phrase movie star is now doing TV, gosh, you're so flattering. I don't even know how to kind of just have to take a little moment to absorb that. I just it's content. Right and TV has expanded. I mean when I was a young person there was two four seven twelve in UHF. Seventeen the hell is that? That's all. There was right. And so now, there's just there's so much more space and with that brings content and with that brings the brilliance of of really incredible person like Sam S. Mel who is my true, dear friend, now is a great show. I guess with less like ninety seconds here. If we can I would love to do we often close with a rapid fire. Just the first thing that comes here. Mine. Nothing too crazy. Would you do another outcome? Of course. Yeah. Okay. Do you have any interest in directing very little? I mean, not to say, but just to say, it's miniscule which other very famous person has impressed. You the most as far as the way he or she handles the day to day challenges of celebrity that, you know, very, well, Brad Pitt anything specific that he that. He does or he just stays calm. He's perfect. If you had hit the scene today instead of thirty years ago, could you have become the same sort of star that you did then. And would you want it to given the current media and celebrity landscape? I think I can only answer the first part of that question, which would be no, you don't think. So I don't think so I guess there aren't they're not making movie stars like that anymore. Right. Not to sound like Mary Pickford, the aforementioned Mary Pickford, I guess. I guess..

"We just had his birthday dinner few nights ago. And there's something about Ryan that is so open and interested and positive. I mean, I'm very happy and optimistic and he's not that. But he is just interested in the promise, and he is really very positive, and I just I don't know whenever I'm with just so happy to be in a space with him. And we're so different. You know? I just I love it. And so when we did eat pray love it was incredible. And I think we we had a great time together and then for the normal heart that was something that had been around for such a long time. And I had people had you know, asked me about it before. And when he got his hands on it. I thought it's perfect. It's in the right hands. He is is the person to shepherd this incredible story to the masses totally one less pre twenty eight teen question is gonna be about associates county, you and Merrill. I believe Sharon agent. Maybe at that time. I don't know. And there was some idea that, you know, the, of course, it would be cool to get you to instantly together when we had her on here couple years ago, and she was saying that when she does a project. Now, proceeds are this whole grace actress alive greatest actress ever this whole there's a something that she feels. I know what? Shop like when you get to.

Where it's probably their co stars have are so kind of jolted by just being in the room with the person. I think it might apply to you as well. So I'm wondering to you have technique, obviously, this is just bouncing off of audio sage not August. But you go on a movie with a young guy like Lucas hedges who's probably known about you for as long as he can remember, and is probably to some extent crapping, his pants that you make yourself Hume into that person. Well, I did the same thing with Lucas that is with Merrill. I just I try to make them feel comfortable. Always. I know you just want someone to see the human of you. That's what Merrill wants. That's what I want. That's what Lucas wants. So that you feel safe. So that you can play with this person. So that you can be spontaneous. So that you can I mean, it's in my case with Merrill at so that we can kind of literally and beat each other up and just talk about the fish bitch. You know, that was uneasy and with Lucas, it's the same thing, you know, I invited him into our home, and he spent a lot of time with my family and with myself, and we were Hearst in my home with Peter and Catherine, and and then he spent thanksgiving with my family, and this is after he didn't even want to do anything on this movie because his dad was making it which he and he says, and I will now speak differently because I've I've heard him speak of this enough to say it's not that he didn't want to work with his dad. It's that that's a strange situation. Of course. And he wanted to I think honored that space, and this was a story that made him reconsider. What does that space really mean? And could I be any safer in this space, then with my father? I can't really imagine it, and I did feel like the girl between two hedges. But I think that they did an incredible job bringing out the best in each other. And and we're very professional, and I felt that Peter allowed Lucas night to have a very close relationship exclusive from you know, he didn't feel it had to be a team. He knew that he could let us have our own situation over here separate from him. And that was really important for us. Guys, have some really gut wrenching moments your characters together where you're basically for people who haven't seen it yet. You know, it's almost like a reverse. It's wonderful. Life. Not this is what would have happened. If if you had not died. But this is what happened because you live. We're gonna go back and retrace these these steps, and and some of them you're your moment in the cemetery with him you're scene where you confront him in the mall..

"Yeah. Super different. Yeah. But in a fascinating way because here I went from being a kind of adult sized child to being an adult. So that was one difference for me a big difference. Yeah. No. It was different story a different place different time. And I think Gary was the most the same. He was the glue. It was interesting because you do think it's all going to be the same. But of course, it's not I have so much more. Experience. I have so much more life. I mean, I loved it. But it was extraordinarily different. It was like being with a whole new. Yeah, you're after that is the one that people will remember you you when you're asking for Erin Brockovich with Soderbergh. It seemed like that, and as I would expect it would for for most people would mean, you know, mental out to you. But I wonder why because at that point, you know, that you're popular with the public. You know, that you're I would think respected in the industry. What is it about an Oscar and wasn't maybe because it was for that specific role, which had demanded something of you that others hadn't or what was it that, you know, why that meant as much to you as it seemed to I think it was working with Stephen, you know, he had come to meet me when I was doing runaway bride and I had worked late, and I came home to my apartment, and he was waiting outside my doors, and I was like oh. Late. And and I thought he had we were in Baltimore. I thought he'd taken the train down from your keep flown from California's I was like, oh good. God, you know, terrible mistake. You should not have come all this way to talk to me. And we had this great conversation, and such a a kind of meeting of the minds, and I I don't know he's he's really one of my favorite humans. He just is his whole point of view his approach his his demeanor, his work ethic. I just I marvel at him to this day. And so I think so much of what moved me about that moment was the experience in the collaboration of it. And and the story and how I felt about it Aaron Eckhart wishes such a great partner and God. And it just wasn't an anyway painful. I know the you felt I think at least as passionately about your clever Asian with the next person. I wanna ask you Mike Nichols. Because it started with closer because I believe from what I understand Cape Blanchet got pregnant so thanks for that. But then three years later again with Charlie Wilson's war. But it seems like in some ways he became the father that fate. Never kinda let you right? He was. I mean, he was and really Stephen and Mike were so close. So Stephen introduced me to Mike, and I knew Diane Sawyer previously. But that's how I met Mike. And then my good fortune of Kate having a baby and falling out of closer, which I mean, I love when those things happen. No Meg Ryan was supposed to be in steel magnolias. She wasn't done filming when Harry met Sally. And so they said well for moving on without you. So that's my good fortune over Over one one where. where the other way, I hope so there has to be I think there was you'd think you were once attached to Shakespeare, I was so you're when you're welcome. But that's the fun thing about the business. If you're around long enough, you know, it does kind of feel like. You do realize it's better for you. And it's you know, and my wish just I can remember really every moment from the moment we met at the Bel Air hotel for closer. And I was so nervous that I got their forty minutes in the car on the street, and I was like because of all. He is. I mean, he's the greatest of all time. Well, one other clever just ahead on because again, it was to within a very short period of time. And it's a very different person. I guess, but you know, you seem to like working with each other's rhyme. Murphy eat, pray love in twenty ten and then you're I sort of dabbling into TV, which will continue obviously fears after but with the normal heart, the TV movie, I guess you'd really had a moving experience with pray love that made. You wanna continue? Well, Ryan is an exceptional person..

"I mean to work with Stephen Frears and work with Neil, Jordan. These are badges of honor on my girl scout actor sash, and I also think they're too great movie. And that. Is truly incredible thing. I know that people that aren't in this business, and they feel like so many people make decisions for actress, and this and that and for me, I've always been very strong in my convictions and choices and have only been talked into a different choice one time, which will share will you? But it's incredible to have a thirty year career and to stand next to it and say, yeah, that that is the sum of all of my decisions because ultimately, you can't sit there and say, well when I did this movie it was working with this person. They had said, oh, this might be good for you know, it's all me so moving into the late nineties now, which is where I think this whole I mean, I'm sure it all this is your life honesty. People to come into the door and say. Voice. I mean, this whole concept of America's sweetheart. I mean, there's been things like that. With Mary pick going back to the very beginning. There's somebody that people really relate to and like, and I think that was probably cemented with these movies over the summers in the late nineties. Let's just remind people my best friends, wedding Notting hill runaway bride and also being movie called America's we Even even. the America's we'd heart. It does kind of seal the deal. But first thing was with my best friends wedding. I was reading the if there's one movie you're gonna watch with your kids or you look forward to watching with your kids or something it would be. Yeah. So what is but that movie was the experience was so positive or what is it about that that movie is so winning and Derm it to this day as my later career proves we're just the best of friends and I adore him. And he's part of my life and the idea of seeing us as young people and this incredible to predicament of this movie. I just think it would be so fun because they're moving into the age where they will, you know, find their best friends that are of the opposite sex and find that person that you go down the road of I don't find that person. We be that person for me. It's just a jewel. I think you had a little more hesitation agreeing to do Notting hill. Just to remind folks this is a movies are falls in love with a regular guy bookseller, Hugh Grant, and I guess just as a kind of funniest side here. But I wondering, you know, the idea that movie star might fall in love with a regular Joe, or you know, this whole I'm just a girl standing in front of a boy asking you to love her. Did you ever actually date someone who wasn't in the business ever? Oh, really? Yeah. Yeah. How does that work? Just fine. Yeah. Yeah. I mean my husband's as cinematographer, but he's not in the business. The way I'm in the business like look over here. Hi, look over here. He's not that God. All right now. I was just curious about that. And then runaway bride same years as Notting hill back with Gary Richard Gere nine years after Pretty Woman, very different stages of all of your lives.

"What I think gorgeous suit, which I bought at the George Omani on rodeo, and it was a man suit tailored it for me in the store ahead fitting, and I was up on a little platform, and I felt like they treated me like a Queen and also excited, and but then when I won I just remember I was sitting next to Sally. And I just thought you know, God. What what? Now, what does that? Even mean, it was so wheels probably would have already been in motion for the next project by that point. Right. I mean, a year later is Pretty Woman. But what was interesting, it seems like when you signed on first of all when you first recycling that it was not called Pretty Woman. It was called three thousand and it was not a comedy. So for them to have looked at you at that point. It was not because they saw romantic comedy potential and for you to go after the project was not because you had any idea. What it would become? So how did that evolve? To to what it became which I really was the turning point. Well, it was a script that was very dark that I had dish in for a few times at a different studio a small studio, and it seemed like they wanted me for the job, and I was super excited and happy. And then that I mean to call it a studio, I guess, it was just a film company folded over a weekend. And so all my promise just was gone that I had this job and then very quickly. The property was picked up by Disney and very quickly in my mind. Gary Marshall came onto direct it. And so they called me and said, well, they've decided sense you were sort of a tach to this that they will see you in this new ration- of what it will be. And I was like, but wait for us to Disney. It's a Disney movie. She's a drug addict, I'm a little confused Gary Marshall, and I went into meet, Gary and really it was just such a big moment in my life. Because as I have often said to him into anyone who will listen to me talk. You know, I say Gary Marshall raised me because I think he raised most people my age, and I just went in. And I was so like nervous and he said, so what is it with you? Some people say they can't dressy up. Some people say you can't dress you down. So what is it would you? I have no idea what? And we just kind of fell into this incredible relationship that I'm so beholden to interesting because it sounds like the other pieces then came together around you one point. It sounds like you read with Charles Grodin before they overhead Richard Gere. I ride with everybody. I read this script with Al Pacino. I read with Charles I read with Bill Pullman, I read with Kristoff lamb bear. I mean, that's crazy. Yeah. And one thing that I was wondering when I came cross this stuff about it originally, not being this this rom com when you met with real LA prostitutes was that when you thought it was still drama. No, it was after I got the job again. But it was just to have an understanding because to me just think how does that happen. I mean, I don't know anything at this point. I mean, literally, I don't know anything about the world. So just to go and talk some girls. Find out how they are where they are. What happens? What does that mean?.

"Mystic pizza came along. At this point. I also had an agent, and you know, was just a casting call for this film that had all these young parts all these young people. And I remember going in and reading, and I was really wrong for the part because I'm blonde Filipino, not anything. I'm not confident. I'm not, you know, I have not anything that daisy was meant to be. And so I went in and I read and I got called back a couple of times. And then the last time, I remember, I don't know. I think must have been the casting agent who said, you know, just so when you come in next week, you know, which is sort of they're looking for someone with dark hair, you know, it's like, okay. So I remember going home and talking to my sister and saying dark hair, I'd never the idea of I didn't know, you could really color your hair. I don't think. So I went to. Lamb since drugstore near our apartment at the south street seaport where at this point. I work at N Taylor and bought some dark colored hair mousse, and you can't tell right now people in the radio land, but my locks look very tamed and delicious when in real life. They're just like it's like curly like crazy girl. And when you put a nearly entire can of mousse in your hair. It is crunchy. It was really dark. It was very shocking and super gigantic. And I went in and read and the actor that I read with was Adam stork who ended up being cast as my boyfriend and doing the scene. Touching my hair and it just sounded like fingers through potato chips. You know? Well, got the get the job. I guess first of all the contextual as you turn twenty during the making that one you put on weight to play the character, which is not something all young actresses do. I know she was meant to be voluptuous, but you were came to do that. But you've said in hindsight, quote, it's too bad that young actors coming up now will never get that kind of experience the businesses so different. You can never be that new girl that has that moment of where she come from close quote. So what's changed between then? And now why would that not be possible? Well, entrusting that quote. Yes. Which is all I can do. Now, it's all kind of catapults now in a way that you can't just enjoy the one moment, it seems to me. This is all just my audience opinion. It seems to go from zero to a million overnight. And in that, I think you lose your sense of just personal thrill. I mean, I remember very clearly going on. On the press tour mystic pizza with my sister. And literally went from city to city in a way that I almost want to say by bus. It was that like. We we did we went from city to city to city and just talk to local news stations look radio stations. And and it was fun. And it was a great way to see all these places that we've never been, you know, we've never been to pasta never been descend Francisco. It was thrilling. And I don't think that happens any more. So not to say, it's e- olden days. But interesting it's a different world today. A year later Shelby the thing in her steel magnolias, you got your first Golden Globe and us chronometer for that. And I guess I wonder for a young actress or something like that, you know, to get some respect must feel good at that point in a career rate while you're just wanting to be probably taken seriously, right? I mean, gosh, what do you say about that? I don't even think I saw it as respect per se adjust validation that I made the right choice in my vocation. And it was nutty. But even.

But oftentimes, yes, some of these projects aren't out yet. So I think the Julia Roberts thing is just about to drop, but we'll see okay or his already come out. It's out.

Meryl Streep Blake bow down to me kiss my hand, but I'm so down to earth. Yeah. One of those where it's like. But if you don't put me on a pedestal be pissed. The other thing is Julia Roberts is married to a DP. So like, but like a real one not like a vanity one. Like, he was a hard working. Oh, yeah. Every day grind, fourteen hours. Fuck rig on hick, Tim she did. And I heard the story of her being like who's that and had like someone bring him over. And basically it was just like all right? So we're going to get married, right?

When do you hang out? I don't know. But what I from what I understand. She took a bunch of years off to raise the kids. So who knows? Maybe she let him work because it was. I haven't seen her do anything in a long time and she hopping back up. Yeah. Which is great.

Here's your blind item. Speaking of getting work done this permanent A-List, mostly movie actress who was once the biggest actress on the planet and does have Oscar nominations slash wins. Recently had extensive work done to her face, which is incredible. And makes her look a decade younger. Ooh. Was once the biggest actress on the planet's? Yeah. For a second. So she's not anymore. Not murals three Bono. It's not Meryl Streep. Okay. This person. I would say they're probably one of the more notable. Yes. Please. Julia Roberts not. Batting a thousand calling. Well, I wanna hear what you said. She was one of the more notable actors of her generation. However, she just has not been acting as much now that could be because she's filthy rich and raising a family, but she does act and she does produce and she's been name. Angelina jolie. No. It's not. Does look really fresh. I have to say considering their age and their natural spaces planning of their age. Yeah. What ages are we talking? I think she's at least fifty oh.

"But yeah, were there any other performances that you wanted to talk about kind of curious how people feel about Julia Roberts because. Let's talk about that. But let's also say one of the other aspects of of our PT moment is if you're making a show like this Amazon, and you have Julia Roberts or you have Sam involved, you get she Wiggham to play that part is great at that. Art. There are many actors probably could've played that part would have cost less been less. You know, he's not the world's biggest name. But he certainly is a very successful working actor similarly like you get Karpov ski from girls in the background there yet Hong Chow only is going to have a bigger part to come. You know, it's kind of like, the, you know, the the Yankees versus the twins in the sense that some teams or some organizations let's say have both payroll, and the cloud and their destination teams that they can they can really fill out a roster in a way that other people can't compete with which is just, you know, into typically cap, I guess because that's impressive at a deep. Bench is always good on TV show. Like this the Julia Roberts aspect of it is really interesting. Because when movie stars would go to TV would be because the roles were drying up the types of roles that they used to play they couldn't play anymore. And now, they get a chance to do it. Again. A lot of respect to Julia Roberts because the part that she's chosen to play to go to TV to play is not a very Julia Roberts part at all. It's a challenging complicated art that you know, if you describe it to me, or if listen to the podcast, Catherine keener, I would not have thought of Julia Roberts for which is not to say, she's not acing the part. I think it's just kind of impressive and interesting that at this level, some of her ability and her fame is pushing herself because I think that this place against a lot of her natural abilities that are that she's been so justly rewarded for I think it's the most interesting part she's had quite some time. Honestly, I mean, she really if you look back on her films in the last ten years, I mean, like money monster was supposed to be kind of a big effort from her and that. That fell flat secret in their eyes was like this attempt to do sort of the nineties thriller thing that didn't really catch on August. Those each county. I thought she was like good in. But I think not not totally convincing. And there's other things she's in Larry Crowne. She's in pray love. So the last this decade have been kind of hit or miss for her. And I don't think they hits have been really hard. There's something new year for me with her because I think so much of what her career has been based on her, absolutely, undeniable charisma. And I find that Heidi is. It's not that she's repressing that charisma. It's just like she's actually playing the role. You know, what I mean like she's actually playing this woman who's bounced around who's had this relationship, but shutt- dermal Rooney by the way, talking about these guys like showing up it's like the room over knee like just like Heidi. What are you talking about is just a great great term? I get the feeling like she just really inhabited this role in a way that isn't like this is Julie Roberts trying to pretend to be right. Kind of kicked down by the world, nor is she like you are weighed two friggin charming to be someone who was like an office manager, and then went to night school and caught on at this newfangled. Company, you know? She has to sound so silly..

Oh, Julia Roberts my best friends wedding. That's not that's not a rom com. So okay. I'm not sure what it is. Yeah. I'd say again like coming of age. Yeah. Because you'd coming of middle age coming up through that time in her life, but it's mostly about her. It's not like they don't end up together. And they're never even together at all doing that movie. Oh, what about Pretty Woman that's around? Come. That's a round com. Okay. I believe that got you got you there. Have you seen just okay?

Well, is the be it was she makes fun of him for wearing cargo shorts in the movie. Okay. And then later on their broken up, and she's like keep seeing them everywhere. And she's in line and a day or like a magazine stand behind a guy who's trying to find his wallet. And that dude has cargo shorts on so many pockets and like he's pulling out chapstick. And that was me I shot to work with. He's so nice. She was so nice. It was very cool. Did you have lines? I had lines like I'm talking to. But it was just edited out of the movie it was like, maybe one of my first movie roles, and at the level where I didn't really have like an agent that I talked to anything. So I didn't even know if I was I took my wife and brother to see it like opening night and be like, I might be in this movie. I haven't heard anything, but I'm assuming. Even then I knew it was like, you might get edited out..

"Judges take. Through. My personal favorite scene is the bathroom fight. It's really good, and it's the best active camera Di job. I love the fact that there's thirty women in this in this women's bathroom. And and kinda rolling with the punches of the fight. And they get mad at Julia Roberts and it's just and it's to really kind of famous actions at the peak of their powers going at it, a showdown. Also, we can come back to this age, the worst, but it it climaxes her being like, and a food critic. I have a lot of thoughts. In this. All right. So you at Julia u. n. carry Okey, Amanda. I went to lunch. Hang Seng. Both singing the here are the helium winter, the helium kids in that. Yeah, and that's at the brunch on Sunday for the wedding. Yeah, they're coming. All right. What's age the best feel free to chime in your on. Here's what I have down the title. Great title. Great title. For some reason, the rom coms from like eight to ninety. Eight had fantastic title share when Harry met Sally sleepless in Seattle, my best friends wedding. While you were sleeping while you were sleeping, they explained the movie within four words and just kinda worked. Julia Roberts and Cameron Diaz they've aged fantastic. Julia, Julia has never looked bad movie and cameras may probably never looked better in a movie Davis, pick their powers. I didn't like her hair styles little too frumpy for me too many shift dresses, but yes, she look good. So what would he do? You think she peaked looks wise. I take that back issues. One Chicago. Summer Chicago, you watch you match cogs. Great. And you go into Semper and it's minus nine, and there's a forty degree, wind, chill. It's a great city for TV and film. It has a lot of very American vistas. It has like low has big buildings also like cool, like suburban spaces. It's if it's very genyk. That city it uses Chicago very nicely as a character. Yes, yes. And also I'd like to White Sox movie, not cubs movie. It's really a head of its time and like picking the team kinda shocking actually, yet a cubs would let them. Sure. Yeah. All right. This is a little dorky, but Cameron the as BMW convertible in this movie is an iconic mid-nineties. That was a great, really nice car. You watch. She picks up the airport if you get a nice look at that from far. Right? Yeah, really. Great. Great vintage. Yeah, really enjoy that. One. I driving scenes were kind of funny. It was like very, is terrible driver. There's like sort of how your perspective of Julia Roberts like no other point in the movie, are you put to Julia Roberts perspective like that sort of like an anomaly, but, hey, it worked. Mentioned Julia being okay, battling for screen time with cameras, I think is age really nicely? Yes, not sure. Most a list actresses would have been cool with that and then the ending that she doesn't end up with them. What else do you have for what's age? The best. It's just I'm so distracted by how beautiful Julia Roberts looks and how that is so style right now that Tan's down my choice. Wow. Guess she has the half shirt in crime crime. Cropped up and the two pairs of sunglasses. Fantastic. All the outfit said, Zoe sibits tries to wear. Connie told Kim that small sunglasses are in. Yeah, joy Roberts is wearing them. Yeah, smoking that is in no, but I do. But what does face don't do that? It's gonna kill you, like having someone tell you not to smoke still in? Yeah. What us for you? Anything? I think the concept of the we won't if we're not married the pack, the backup packed has as you pointed out really started with this movie and now you do see it everywhere, kind of taken on a life of its own. Again, I think they limit is far too low here, but I was gonna have that in what age? The worst. Just by twenty eight for Mary. They seem so early now. Now somebody did this. It'd be like thirty eight. Yeah, that's him go. All right. What age the worst sport magazine sport. Okay. His big job is he works for sport magazine, which even in the late nineties, I think was. Kind of that thing anymore. Both real. I thought it was the whole. I thought it was supposed to be Sports Illustrated does. It was.
