"On X 96. We all remember a few years back one former New York Congressman Anthony Weiner. Was rocked by a Twitter scandal in which Anthony showed his wiener.

Well, it looks like old Tony wieners hard up for cash because we just learned that he may sell his infamous crutch shot. As an n F t N F T stands for non fungible token and not as I originally thought, non floppy tally whacker. Basically, Weiner is hoping that having exclusive rights to his famous photo will bring in tons of cash, which makes sense because the only other way you can get a photo of Anthony Weiner's junk is to be a teenage girl on Twitter. That's not the photo I want to talk about. Now. The photo of the New York Post ran with their story showing Anthony Weiner in a T shirt that says L S S C.

There weren't a lot of movies where it's like the protagonists is I care my three female friends that I'm GonNa Bounce. This idea of this might actually been the first movie that even play that card, not only that they actually seemed like friends. Yeah, and he lays out the entire movie in that scene.

"I can't imagine doing something like sister to then where you're put into a school situation that there's a ton of young people yeah. I'm always yeah so many of them. Disappeared appeared yeah. There are so many people in that movie on the I mean the whole cast obviously the monks and everybody else but ask me who asked me about anyone be able to tell you what's up with research them sure we all your rappers everybody in their Sir such interesting such interesting guys didn't even the young man who has the big solo the WHO was lead singer. Yes I know you're talking about. He changed his. He's the right my slave name yeah yeah yeah yeah. I think if I know who you're talking about so many people in there that that you would think you're obviously you never stopped working but you had general of Hewitt who tiny part yeah. She's there to be pretty upset thing. She's supposed to be that she's airlines are like and can we put makeup on you know. That's her thing yeah. We're going to have time for this on me yeah and she's one of the ones who stayed well. I think the people that that did St- I think the the people that did sustain a career with the people that were not <hes> sort of <hes> tied to labels IDA musically because there you go we were not. We weren't like you know a scooped up by a label and said you're going to be the next Madonna. You're going to be the next you know I. I don't know you're going to be the next L._l.. Cool J whatever they would compare them to but these kids weren't initially actors they were entertainers and they had great voices and I think maybe I I'm just assuming that they probably got scooped up by labels and they were given one chance unfortunately as as as a music as recording artists you're given one chance in it's all on you and if the record sales don't do well well then you know you're sort of a flash in the PAN. Unfortunately were as an acting if a movie you do as a big flop. It's not on you yeah. It's everything that has a lot to especially. If you're uh the star when you are which is why you know Fuji's Lauryn Hill's Fuji's was it was like catching lightning but for them she won the Lotto. I mean she was a part of Van Band was she was part of a group that was very zeitgeist Zeitgeist Dean and what did she do. They spun it because she was just so beautiful and she had such an interesting unique sophisticated voice for such a for child that they were able to sort of groom her into becoming you know Ms Lauren Hill and it also I think you know <hes> being a part of the whole Marley you know planet. All of it really adds more to the mistake of being Lauren Hill so. I think that that is what what what people really gravitated hated toward but you know you have something like sister act to that. That is sort of these kids were hoping to be a launching pad to a music career of course and music careers are just so short-lived like the the life of an athlete yeah. I you know what I was just one of those like you know singing lessons then ballet lessons than acting lessons and I never really took it seriously <hes> you because I would I would go to New York and then I'd hear these kids live and I'd be like Oh wow well. They really have exercised that muscle. I'm a little rev around the edges but you know it's you. You're not given as as much opportunity to sing living Los Angeles as you would as I would have better. I lived in New York so that's that's the reason behind that get to sing in one of the greatest movies of all time cutting Oh yeah yeah hey has stuck with so many of us absolutely as you see that Liz oh just performed and did a tribute no she was oh just performed at the MTV movie awards and did a tribute to the joyful joyful.

What was just to reverse just for a moment of how did you get into voice acting because you've been doing that a long time? Ah Yes coco's just the latest most prominent example of that. You started doing that a long time ago. That's a great question and I'll tell you what happened. I was not working a lot. I mean it's like the Pamela Avalon story shirt the you know what I mean I was. I got a little bit parts and indies and stuff but I wasn't making a lot of money you know and my manager had <hes> had a client over at vox boxes. <hes> <hes> a voice a voice artist <hes> agency Z. and she'd said you know you might WanNa try voiceovers and I thought yeah let's let's try it and Lo and behold I just started getting call backs for little boys constantly little boys and I thought Oh but.

I'm GonNa test me started do do you know what I was just watching it. The the other day and I just couldn't stop cracking up. My son was looking at me like I was out of my mind but Little Red Riding Hood which she turns out to we sing this around <music>. We walked singing that rather free. What a perfect part anyway? I mean you get to be silly when you're doing voiceovers started working a lot and that's how you know I was able to to grandma sixty guys for grandma big ice for so called refunding out that that was b-b-bend Sarah I grew up watching on camera very sedate. You know characters last burns and Georgian gracie's neighbor on the Brinson Allen show no she was the star of Petticoat junction.

It is played by a girl yes so you were Rivera. Manny Rivera an Ebay for a long time and that was sort of my first big thing where I was you know playing you. You know the lead on this little on this this little Sean nickelodeon playing this little boy and I just I couldn't believe how fun it was. That was back in the days where all the voice over actors would be in one studio the acting what what a fun Gig you can wear your P._J.'s to work. It is awesome yeah and that's like like doing a radio show. There's an ensemble. There's whereas feature film we've been doing a lot of time quite a few lovely. The voice folks on films. They generally record you separately. Individually which I'm sure has its benefits right production. It's good for them. It's a very solitary but it's Scott Bueller tougher for you. I was worse sure now for those who don't know you are the matriarch in cocoa. That is a heck of a role. Oh that was so much fun it was it was just another audition because nowadays you can record your additions on your I phone right <hes> you can record it. Trial changed yeah that's right and when they had sent me the audition I read it and of course you know it's like Fort Knox at Pixar very very very secretive about what they're you know presenting sure and and so I assumed that why is this woman mad about her photo not being on an old friend but she had the D._M._v.. I don't understand just I think she's upset that she said the D._N._B.. Or something I was reading a lot of my my husband was in the other room and he heard me and it took him hearing what the dialogue wasn't he came in. He was like Alana. She's dead a she's dead. It's he was like it's almost like beetlejuice. Yeah I think she maybe she doesn't realize she's dead or something but yeah I think this is this. This might be a day of the dead. Movie is not going to be entered out today. That movie David that yeah that there's a lot of fun and that movie means a lot. Mike God who a lot of and I'm sure that you're Hispanic family. All over the place is thrilled. Unbelievable says it broke all kinds of records in Mexico. It was yeah you became the number one movie and yeah in in Mexican history to be made it was it really did tug on everyone's heart strings and I think it was just it was at such a perfect time obviously because we were you know obviously unfortunately <hes> we've been under such <hes> scrutiny these past couple of years and and for us to to to to have a movie that finally shines the light on the sophistication of the culture is so important because very many very few people know it. It's not just about sugar skulls and it's not just sugar a whole meaning and it's already work with Gutierrez. Yes Rivera who made book of life that was a movie about yes there you go and that was about mass that was just a masterpiece and I think what cocoa did was. It brought everyone could relate to it because it was all about the importance of family and being members sure and everyone's biggest fear do I think is to be forgotten so <hes> that it really did touch a lot of people I'm so proud of them being raised with a Salvadorian Mumia which is why he's mommy does he <hes> defying Sandal bit. Oh yeah the junk lead Jangling Iowa's honest yeah on the floor laughing so hard I came home. I went to my mom and I was like you have to see this movie. You're GonNa die absolutely the Sandal.

These these roles that differ generations and depending on how old you are. That's a big deal and that's going to be a movie where when someone's twenty or thirty they go. Oh God that was my favorite film growing up. I loved it so much. That's how they know. Yeah Yeah Yeah our wild. It's it's something speaking of recognition. You have been on a number T._V. T._v..

"Yes, elaborately aren't big famous. People aren't just like watching shit. Like, we are probably. It's dumb. Right. No. Like, I just feel like when you get to a certain level of fame certain level of being super busy money housewives wherever you're living up in the hill. If you're in the mansion or thing, whatever that your human experience and the way that you take in art or life is just different. Do you know what I'm saying? It's crazy to me that, you know, like Ellen does this her latest special like relatable, like there's no way. What is it? I'm sorry. I don't know her comedy special. So. Skull relatable, the whole beginning is all you know, how people are saying how could she be relatable? And that's the ideas that how without a younger person that has to go back to their apartment and live a normal life. How would she be able to ingest? You know, art or movies or podcast or things in the same way. Because her ex you know, when you get to these George Clooney, whatever is George Clooney, if he listens to Krista Leah or THEO von, there's no way that he's having the same reaction the same related like the same like, right, buddy. As we are what I'm saying. So again are so busy, and they are they are really they're busy people. I don't know how much downtime of like, whatever. But I think the common ground is comedy in this case in this case, I guess it is comedy because everybody is searching that were comedy right now. And just a good laugh. And I think that's why all these shows this show and drink and rose you well, everybody's searching for something lights are funnier because there is no movies anymore. So I think in this case in this particular case. Yeah. Then more and more people are. Going online. So look for comedy something to laugh at because you you're not watching movies anymore. Any really funny TV shows that are out right now, where it's just like we're watching Pamela Avalon show last night, we love she's brilliant and always been hilarious from California -cation all the way to Louis to her new show and all that stuff, but they're serious moments in episode. We watched last night was. Full on drama. There was some funny shit in it a little bit but drama. Yeah. It's not a laugh out loud, Pierre P or jeans type sich, and it's like all right cool. Man. I do wanna see that. And it's like broad city. Just went off the love that show before they got the last season was super political. But this final season was great and. They don't make too many shows like that. Right. So that's just my guess. I guess sorry James it is. And then last night, I want to talk about with you because this is for you spilling eighties..

"Bearing down on the present the movie adapted from out of Sega's nineteen forty four. Novel follows a young av technician named Georg played by the soulful German actor FRANZ Rogalski who is lying low in Paris after having escaped from a concentration camp. It's suggested that Gheorghe is Jewish although here in and other places the movie avoid spelling things out with the German occupation of France looming. Gheorghe makes his way to the port city of Marseille were thousands of refugees are desperately trying to secure their exit papers and flee to the Americas. Georg has hasn't his possession? Some documents belonging to a famous communist writer named vital who recently committed suicide shortly after arriving in Marseilles, Georg is mistaken. By officials for vital himself and goes along with the deception, especially since it means he will be the beneficiary of vitals, transit visa to Mexico. From there. The twists and ironies begin to pile up as Georg encounters and quickly falls in love with vitals, estranged wife. Marie played. By Paula beer. Marie has no idea that her husband is dead. And while she engaged. Orca are drawn to each other. There's little hope that it will end happily Gheorghe can't bring himself to tell her the truth. And they both seem more like ghosts than people haunted by their war-torn. Pasts Christian Petzold is a lover of classic Hollywood, John RAs, especially film Noir, and he works in a crisp exacting style. That might be termed Hitchcock, Ian, realism, his stories are full of preposterous plot turns and elaborate cases of mistaken identity, but the emotions like the visuals are always powerfully restrained. It's as though he were ruthlessly paring away the excesses we usually associate with melodrama. Curiously the more contrived transit gets the more affecting it becomes. Outwardly. The movie tells the story of an impossible love during wartime with shades of Casablanca, but the indeterminate nature of the setting creates its own strange distances. Love the old documents. We see the passports and visas look right out of the nineteen forties. But there are also deliberate echoes of the current refugee crisis, especially when Georg befriends a north African migrant woman and her young son in a different life. He could be the husband and father figure they need to. But there are no easy escapes or solutions here and despite Georg, wildly resourcefulness. He's alternately unable to help anyone including himself. Franz Rakosky an actor with a serene haunted presence and a strong resemblance to walking Phoenix is our angelic guide to the strange netherworld Marseille often shot in broad daylight.

"I'm shell Hennigan in at seven thirty. This is fresh air. I'm Terry gross. Let's get back to my interview with Pamela Avalon. The co creator co writer director and star of the FX comedy series better things which begins its third season Thursday. She plays. Sam FOX who? Like Avalon is juggling raising three girls as a single mother while helping her own aging mother who lives next door and trying to move forward with her acting career Adlan has been acting since she was nine she won an EMMY for her voice work on the animated series. King of the hill as the sun, Bobby hill, she appeared on seven seasons of the TV series, California. -cation she worked with Louis CK on his series Louis and his earlier series lucky Louie, he co created her series better things, but she severed ties after he admitted to allegations of sexual misconduct. When you found out that the woman had come forward and made the allegations against him. Had you heard rumors, did, you know anything about it before? God, I'll tell you what I told the New Yorker, which is that if you hear a rumor or you read a blind item or something like that. And you hear it's about somebody that, you know, all you can do is ask them about it and confront them. And you do that. I mean, I'm not gonna talk about it any more than that. I'm sorry. Okay. It's almost like, you know, women who are connected somehow to these men to women are almost like being reversed meet who'd. So you know, if you have any affiliation you're ending up answering for these things that you're talking about yourself. Yes, I'm talking about myself. And I'm talking about other women. You know, I'm talking about how everybody's, you know, relentlessly asking, you know, Sarah Silverman about him and about how Chloe grace Morad's, you know, she can't get away from it because she made this movie with him. And so we're we're we're having to answer for these. Four men as opposed to talking about our lives in ourselves. And it, you know. It's it's difficult. And then the women who were affected, you know, the the victims of. You know, these people and Louis, you know, it's heartbreaking if there's anything but support coming in their direction. And I mean, I it's I I wish that I could do something for them. And I wish that I could stop having to answer. And I wish that we would stop having to answer for them for the men that leads me to my collateral damage question putting aside Louis the person for her second putting side the actions that he's responsible for the show itself. It was a really great show. Great performers on it. Oh, you mean the Louie show Lewis show? Yeah. So like all the people who worked on it in one way or another. You were one of the stars. You had a recurring character right on the show. And so like a producer and a writer on it as well. Right. So that's a big chunk of your resume. That is kind of. Nobody wants to see it. Now. No one wants to hear about it now. So I'm wondering how you feel like an actress and one of the writers and producers right of the Lewis series knowing that people aren't watching it now. And it's like it's your work to that's not being seen yet, some kind of a collateral damage thing. So I'm just wondering how you feel like what's supposed to happen with the work. I don't know. Because lucky Louis was a beautiful great show too. And you you were you played his wife on. Yeah. That's his first show. Yes. So that's in the garbage. Can you know? And I don't know what the answer is. I mean, I heard one of the people from the Cosby show talking about I think it was Malcolm Jamal Warner was talking about how it really affected him because of residuals and things like that. And I mean, that's that is the collateral damage. Right. I interviewed Louis several times and a question. I wish I ask that I didn't was about the women characters on his show Louis 'cause it seemed like whenever he dated someone including your character in a way. She was always like a little crazy, sometimes even predatory and I never asked him about that. There was so much about the show that I really loved I figured why spend time on something that made me uncomfortable. And maybe I was uncomfortable asking because maybe I didn't want to risk losing the report that we had. But I'm wondering I'm wondering if any of like, the portrayal of women on his show made you uncomfortable, then or in retrospect. That's so interesting. I mean, I remember when he wrote that my character, Pamela lake through all his furniture away. And I said why are you doing why are you trying to make everybody hate, Pamela? Like, that's so crazy. I think that he just I mean, he he would like to do things in extremes. But I I mean, that's interesting. You'd have to ask him that question. I don't I don't know. I feel that you know, when he wrote the the Sarah Baker this. So did the fat lady episode, and when she made that beautiful speech. I mean that was all him those a speech to a waitress that he met at a comedy club. And she she actually she was she's a large young woman, and she felt like no one ever wants to date her see her as sexual because she's large, and he and she obviously would like to date him, and he doesn't really want to be seen as someone who she's dating. But yes. But then he makes a speech Joyner just described the speech that well, it was her speech to him her speech to him. Right. Right. Yeah. And it was it was Abbott Lew. Yeah. He wrote that speech. And I remember auditioning the women for this speech because I held the audition in Los Angeles for Los Angeles people and Sarah Baker came in here. A lot of women came in. They were deeply affected by these words and. You know? I mean, it's nap -solutely extraordinary. Soliloquy that this woman, she just lays everything bear. And it is it is a testament to his heart and his depth as a writer to be able to go in and understand. Somebody like that. And and that speech in a way is him. It you know, it's him talking about himself. Okay. So that leads to another thing I've been wondering about how do you figure out what to do when when Louis when when the we was accused of this and admitted to the sexual misconduct. I mean, I would imagine you can tell me that you had to feeling of one was probably to try to help him. 'cause I don't know it just seems to me somebody who's doing that in front of women. It's really troubled and needs needs some kinda help therapy or something at the same time. There's this urge to say like, I'm not going near you like what you did was really damaging and terrible and inexcusable I'm going to sever ties with you. So we torn between the idea of doing something to to help him to help make him realize what he'd done and get get get better. Like, you know, what I mean change? Yeah. Between that and just saying I'm done with you. I think that it cigs. Exactly what you're saying. You know, I mean, my first instinct is to help to reach out and help. Everybody, you know in in every aspect of my life. It's always been that way. You can only offer help so much. You know, people have to be able to accept it. The help in terms of professionally. I needed to start completely fresh, and I had no choice. I was not going to make my show with him anymore. So that's why I had to contemplate whether or not I was gonna do it. If you're just joining us, my guests, Pamela Adlon, she's co writer of the director and the star of the FX comedy series better things which starts its third season on Thursday.

Fresh air and congratulations on season three of better things. Thank you so much, Terry. So this season, everyone is going through a change. Like, you said, you know, your oldest going to college the middle of puberty your youngest being bullied at school. Characters of there seems to be in the early stages of dementia. Your character's going through menopause, these the personal issues you've been dealing with. You know, I say this about my show that it's an exaggerated version of my life. So it's like Sam FOX is me in a Cape. You know, certainly, I'm in a multi generational situation. With all women in my life. My three daughters live at home. My mother lives next door. I'm what I think they call this an which generation, and so these issues are all happening to me to a certain extent right now. My own mother isn't going through dementia, but it's an interesting place to go, and I like people to have their own interpretation. And I think that's why people take this show. So personally because everybody's going through some version of of these different things. I think women over the years have been very uncomfortable talking about getting older, maybe because I think a lot of women feel devalued with age, and they're no longer considered sexual. So how did you feel about putting it out there? About crossing the threshold of fifty I, you know, it's it's so it's so exciting to me because I was I didn't say my real age for years, you know, and. Why not? Because because of the taboo of it, and you know, when people find out especially being an actor in the industry it hurts. It hurts you for a woman you hit that forty. You know, it affects you because it is such an aide just sexist industry, which I think is now shifting and changing. Still not one hundred percent yet. But it's the irony is not lost on me. That my father at he hit fifty. And basically, you know, he was a writer and producer and the jobs kind of started drying up for him because people wanted younger people, they they want young blood and they valued youth over, you know, ability, even and so then I turned fifty and I have my own show. And all of a sudden, it's a whole new world for me, professionally, you know, with all the different jobs that I do and. My show is a wonderful. I love my show. It's it's beautiful. I can tell these stories in an artful cinematic way, it has great music great actors. But also my show is the story about me. And how I know that people are excited, you know, this lady's been kicking around in this business since I'm nine years old and she hits a big at fifty. So what are some of the things that bother you most? And some of the things you find most liberating. About having turned fifty a few years ago. You know, only too. Yes. You know, it's just I. You kind of when you. Get comfortable with yourself. It's it's a way of feeling confident and not having to hurry up and catch up and measure up to other people. When you let go of that the power is is is incredible. If if you look for things that are, you know, that if somebody's giving you a side, I, and you think they don't like you or or anything like that you look in the mirror, and you're like, oh, I guess this is my neck now. Okay. Well, let's keep going with that. Or are these jowls is this call Jowell's? That's so interesting. Oh, arm cellulite. That's that's fine. That's fine. You know? So it's like you have the physical things. But those things don't matter because you're. Mind is richer? Your experiences are richer. Your your life is deeper your connections with your friends or deeper. My kids are older now, and our relationships are are so much deeper than they used to be you know, I used to try to get as far away from my kids as I could when they were younger. And now, I want them around me all the time, and they want that to so in the opening of the first episode your characters trying on clothes, and none of them fit because your characters put on a few pounds. So it seems like you've put on a few pounds. So I think in that opening scene there's maybe a few extra pounds than they really were. No. That's all me, Terry. Okay. All right. So was that stress eating because this has been such a difficult time with you doing so much to get the show. You know, what it's very interesting because I- I wrapped season two of my show, and I went into the editing room. And you know, just a few months went by my body changed. My body changed. You know, I got thicker, and it's not I don't feel bad about my body or anything, but it was shocking. And I remember being in my closet, and and trying on pants. I'm like, I just wore these three months ago and things were just tater. And it was a moment that I thought, oh, boy, I'm gonna have to do this in my show. Because it's you know, you get into your fifties. Your metabolism does funky things. And you know, I I just I decided that it would be a very generous thing for me. To kind of illustrated in my show. So everybody doesn't feel so alone. Because you know, that happened to me, and you sit there and you're by yourself, and you know. And for people women in particular when our bodies don't measure up to what our idea is of what we're supposed to look like with our clothes off in the mirror. That's shocking thing. You know, it's not our fault. And it's not up to us to maintain some kind of a physical image for anybody. But ourselves I like the fact that when your character realizes her clothes, no longer fit her because she's put on a few pounds. She doesn't go like, so I'm going on a diet now, and I will lose that weight. My goal will be to fit back in these clothes. I mean, she goes about interesting, you know, and also you as the star of the show and also the director of the show. You don't have somebody else telling you, Pamela Adlon, if you're going to continue playing this role you have to lose some weight. No one's telling you that. It's your show. Yeah. Isn't that? Interesting. Isn't that amazing? That's good. Also. I mean, I didn't gain that much weight. Wait. No. I know. I know I know I'm kidding. But listen, I remember being a teenage actor and being on a show. I'm not going to say the name. But I remember some girls on the show being pressured to lose weight, and it was extremely inappropriate. And it was extremely. Damaging to the psyche of a young girl. I mean that was you know, being in the eighties and eighties television. That would be the ultimate era of toxic trying to control the way women are portrayed. So one of the things about your character is that she doesn't hold back when something bothers her. Whether it's about her children or about somebody at her children's school or a stranger in a restaurant, or you know, she doesn't have much of a filter. So yeah, she says, what's on her mind? And now, there's a fine line between honesty, and cruelty and the girls, though, the girls are always so embarrassed by her daughter's like, this isn't really a spoiler. There's a scene where the girls wanna go go karting in like an amusement park. And so you take them even though you don't really want to go and the the the young man who is supposed to be giving the safety talk is talking like this. And like you. No one can hear him. And you finally say like, you're you're supposed to be protecting us and telling us what to do. And we can't hear you and your daughters are like so horribly embarrassed by the whole thing does that happen to you. We're like you're trying to speak out. For reasons of like, you have you have a right to to have something or to expect something and you're speaking out not just for yourself. But for other people, but your daughter's just kind of withering with embarrassment. Exact yes, this happens quite a bit. But it's like I mean, come on. So you're giving me the rules. And you know, this is a life or death situation, and nobody can hear you, and they're not admitting it because they're zoned out anyway. And you know, it's like when Frankie says it's just like legal disclaimers. That would never hold up in court. Anyway, it doesn't matter. I'm like, it does matter, you know, SAM's Sam saying everything matters. But you know, it's it's I think that this may be more of a single parent kind of situation because there's no backup. She has no backup. There's nobody there saying, hey, you know, don't give your mother hard time or something like that. It's just her. So she has no henchman knows zone defense nothing. She's just kind of be the one to make everybody squirm less short break here. And then we'll talk some more. If you're just joining us, my guess is Pamela Adlon, and she writes directs and stars in the FX series better things, which is loosely based on her own life as a single mother of three who also has an acting career, and has also helping take care of her mother who lives next door. We'll be right back. This is fresh air..
