I enjoyed it, but there's definitely imbalanced to it. I really had to question at that time. We'll what really matters. I took a walk about to a monastery for awhile took another walkabout to Peru on my own all these solo trips to go at my own, my own identity catch up where I could see through what was real at this time where my feet were feeling. So firmly on the ground. because. You had become Ram Com McConnell. Hey, right. That was much later.

I remember saying I just if my life's more vital than my work, that's good. But can work challenged the vitality of the life I'm living and I wasn't getting that from the ROM coms work I wanted to do to challenge my life's vitality. Was not being offered to McConnell nobody wanted to make those dramas I wanted to make. So I, decided if I can't do what I WANNA do I'm going to stop doing what I've been doing. Twenty months ago by no work, you've not seen me on any beach song shirt. You have not seen me in your living room or theatre in a ROM com where the hell's McConnell.

It meant that for me that as as an actor that has an artist, my product I was putting out the essence of myself through my cares I was putting it was trans. Lady I love that word translate. What I intended to do is what pretty closely was done there was not a gap a lot of times in performances. You know what we WANNA do what we're actually doing and what gets recorded in what you see it can be a large gap between the fourth does this was a time where felt like know what I intended to do didn't have a large gap as you received it.

"You can get, you can invest in make choices to engineer more our ally. Now, I know that was a milestone for you and obviously won the Oscar for it, but there's something about these physical transformation rolls when when an actor does something where you realize like they're. Literally torturing themselves I mean when you how would you get down to how much did you weigh? I weighed one, thirty five in look you know this I was not torturing myself. I was militant. The hardest part is making the damn choice. It was my responsibility. If I looked like I do now playing Ron Woodruff Dallas buyers club you are out of the movie, the first frame bullshit he doesn't he's not staged for a Chevy out what's my job? I had to lose the way once I made my mind up. I did the smart thing I gave myself five months i. got on a diet. or I'd have matab pudding or whatever three eggs egg whites in the morning five ounce of fish of vegetables for launch five fiscal visuals dinner as much as I wanted to drink and I lost two point five week like clockwork no exercise as much wine as you wanted to drink. Much is a one. How does What kind of Diet is It works. And it didn't matter if I was going to the treadmill and burning two thousand calories a day or not two point five pounds a week clockwork. And what happened in that time, and this is another reason that I really didn't towards myself and people say, oh my gosh, it's been so hard as what I learned from it that the that the bodies more resilient than we give it credit for. I the power lost the neck down. Equally or more. So sublimated to the neck up I was. So my mental game so cute and so on point. I was clinically smart. It didn't matter if I drink my wine to warn the morning at four, thirty, a M No. Along block thing I was up. Every morning had incredible amount of mental energy I had no leverage from the neck down. My knees, I had no insulation anywhere. You know my body would hurt when I try to run ten feet but from here. There's some things actually miss about it. What do you think? What was the process like? Why did your brain work better when you were starving yourself? I think because it wasn't relying on I think on a cellular level I've felt my body going. Hey. Do a baseball term. You got people over there on the bench and the Dugout then you got people out in the field that are you know sitting in the in the bullpen not working out on a cellular level? Cellular. Early. In the DUGOUT and over there in the bullpen, I'd get up and go WHOA, we're not getting fed fed. We got we got to exercise here. We come to put hurt. Because The by bodies not getting, we're not getting what we used to get. We're not placated by what we used to get our installations gone are what we rely is go what we used to rely on gone so I think my whole body woke up and my brain got really super super sharp on that as well. So I think it was the going without the there's a bit of a It was what I without that sharpened up and made my brain on sale of much more hungry. What do you weigh normally? One Eighty, eight Jesus. Christ so you lost fifty pounds. Yeah. There's roles were guys do this where it defines their career in some like Robert when he gained weight for raging bull Christian Bale when he did the machinist. Yeah. Yeah. The these these roles where a guy or a woman just transport Charlie's wrong when she played monster the, they transform their body and it's like got it's a different level of commitment in when you entered into that film, it was this the first time you've ever had to do that. Yeah. I. Mean you got jack for that? Don't know how Jackie were before that dragon movie I'm sorry I forget the name. Rain of fire rating. I loved that movie that was my baby. then. Zan Ms Fans in was a great. Talk about a guy who is about this yet that was a sobering character I missed that Guy Yeah it was fun character but you were Jack in that movie Jack Normally did you have to get Jack for that movie? I got more Jack for that our family. We come from our anatomy, the McConnell as big try set. My Dad. You see you loved it. I'd be sitting there as a kid. My Dad was a big guy six or to sixty five. Played Kentucky in a bear Bryant a drafted by the Green Bay packers. He was a big bear with man and he comes when I'm in front of the TV watching my favorite show. Incredible Hulk there's look. I'm like stand in front of the TV doing all this war Wichita Dad look at it. Man I mean he's got these baseball size by ships look at him while and he goes. Takes off his shirt. Let me take some Sun. Right, there will be goes. Nice makes the girls scream. You know. It's show. He goes. At right there. He goes the work muscle s the one that puts a roof over our head. S for Dell. Showing down the steps for Verdel. So big TRICEP. So when I went work gotten an take a little bit of creating my triceps go bananas. So that was a minor transformation wasn't that difficult to do. Now, it was minor. Boxing and. And just Nice thrones wait around do got fit. But for Dallas Buyers Club. I should stay within ten pounds striking way to whatever I need to do for the role. Was it hard to make the decision to do that for Dallas buyers club though because that was a giant transformation, I mean. It wasn't hard. I was looking for something to be all consumed with something to be obsessed with a singular obsession. This is my job. So my life. Revolved around that, my wife made me meals trust me I didn't go to Pizza Hut and say, no, thank you the Pizza I'll have salad I did not even put myself in front of him. -tations I I was a hermit I stayed in my wife made me the meals and I studied and wrote and created the character all day long and I'd never got tired of that. So my world I was in a bubble I just put myself in a global for five and a half months and that commitment to put myself on that island to know that this is good to have the singer obsession you. You cannot go far enough Makaay. That was a freedom in that. As is freedom. I've always found being having having a character that I can commit that much to. You cannot go far enough out. That was your thought process. Yeah, I knew when I got down to one thirty, five, I was like Oh. Okay. That's good in mind you will tell you this when I started to eat more at one thirty five to say, let's slow this train down and quit lose weight my body had already got the message and had its blinders on that we're going south and going south So that was a bit scary because I kept losing the way because my body gotten already gotten in the in the rhythm of losing weight and like I said, it turned a blind eye on getting any more food. So there was a tough transition there for about two weeks to get my way to balance out again and say, let's just hold at one, thirty five. So you drop below one, thousand, five at one point in time just went global one, thirty, five got about one, thirty two and then brought it back up. Now. How long did it take for you to physically recover from something like that we back to normal You. Know recovery. Really Because I thought that I thought that when I saw you in that film, I told my wife saying this. This is gonNA take a long time for him to bounce back because I know how hard it is for guys to cut wait for fights and I know a lot of guys that have really depleted their body doing that and when I saw you that gone and skinny. He's eating his body, your body aid itself museum is the only way. I look I came back and did true detective after that and I got on to detect about one sixty, seven and help and I love that weight as well because I had a little more leverage at a little more athletic ability more insulation around my joint but I was still pretty stripped in ripped. So, coming back from that I did learn this had to come back very slowly because I heard stories about people that go well now I'm back and I'm going to gain weight. I can eat as much as I want and that you can grow back and looked formed you can features can come back if you rush it, they come back and odd ways so very slowly with the weight back on. And then did a role few years ago I guess it was about four three, three years after sparks. Where I put on forty seven pounds. So I was to twenty. What was that out a lot more gold is called gold held a lot more fun to put that. into. Where I was cheese Burger King. And my family loved me in that role because I was captain fun..

"ron woodruff" Discussed on Is It Transphobic Podcast
"It, it was the thing that really drew this friend of mine into the character and into the world of this film and as much as. We are going to talk about a lot of the specifics now having watched it. I respect that opinion. Even though I did not get the same thing from this movie. At least from from Rayon and that's really mean I also did not grow up like I grew up as a child during the AIDS crisis I did not know a lot going on but at the same time. The movie in my opinion the movie itself. Didn't do a great job with ray on. But I really dug the way that they dealt with. Woodruff Matthew. mcconaughey character in the first act. Yeah To to. Put My cards on the table for we continue. To very specific misconceptions or like nervous conceptions but two very specific things that we're going to my mind when I started watching the movie. Deborah really softened a lot of it for me, which was one. The last movie that I've seen that was in relation to the AIDS crisis was the film adaptation of Rent. which was the worst movie that's life. I it's just. Sorry And the others conception is that I didn't realize that it was made in twenty thirteen I thought like watching it. It felt like it was like an early two thousands movie in house can be like well. Okay like Even. The Straits don't really get chanced stuff I. It was like a good attempts to try to like bring more color to the table metaphorically speaking. But it's a twenty thirteen. I don't know like. I mean at times article didn't come out yet. It's just it's just weirder and it's also like. That film strikes very early two thousands and I'm not like sinophile so I could be completely dead wrong on this, but it just felt. Like You know way older movie than it actually ended up being. So. And that. Up Sorry and then I guess the third conception. Sorry. The secret third one was that I actually was trying to give him the benefit of the doubt because as soon as I found out that it was like historical like a history piece because runway was a real person. As like, Oh, well then you know if they had to deal with a real life trans person like they're they're dead in the water like you know they're not going to handle that well. But no round is is a real. She was made for the movie. So cool. Great. Love that for us. So. Yeah. I wonder because Silas one of the things that you had mentioned that you had focused on when talking about the movie was a lot more of a real life historical things that were going on and about the real life of what was happening. Can you talk a little bit about that? Yes so Aside, from knowing about, you know sort of the kerfluffle about jared leto playing the part and hearing a little bit about that when the movie came out the other thing that I really had a bee in my bonnet about is the fact that Ron Woodruff was not straight. And he did talk about long clearly had some stuff but. They just. Changed him to be straight and altered his character quite a bit and watching it. It's so clear to me that they were like, how do we make this the straight male hero anti hero type that the straight people will come see the movie for? And so that to me like before, we even get to any issues of transphobia homophobia of that in the Bi phobia that really just made me now it becomes this sort of like. The straight guy in the hero of a crisis that you know certainly straight people and all people belong to this lots of. It was but it was primarily focused on the queer. Community. And sort of start off before you even have a chance to give the film the benefit of the doubt with that erasure just really for me. Through me completely out of it it was I wasn't able to come to the film really with. A kind of the I at that point. It's not the kind of like trope that I enjoy ever and like it wasn't even like making him straight like they said that he was like a real cowboy like he's portrayed in attitude you know like the cursing and the sort of like fly by night in all the sort of you know traveling to other places. And the smuggling and stuff but in in sort of his portrayal, like he didn't dress that way in sort of the ten gallon hats in the Rodeo look like he was sort of looked like a buttoned up accountant said, and so there were a lot of. That I was looking at it and I was like I could see the strengths you know the sort of like, how do we make this movie? For Straight people for Oscar. Bait. And all of that Eminem we'll get into it as we go and we start to to break it apart. But everything about it just screams the sort of conniving you know taking away of the story. From who had access To Yeah. I will say it absolutely because that I did not have that knowledge going in and so a lot of my criticism of the film and keep in keep in mind like the film because they have made the choice to do this. is still like all the criticism I have is absolutely still applicable at the exact same time. It's like, Oh, a lot of my like, why is this straight dude? The one that's like saving everybody why is this happening what I'm so glad this is straight dude lived but at the same time like Oh if in real life, this guy was even if he was like. By and like on the down low are however, it needed to be like as even if he was just like a part of it, I would have felt a lot better about it like there was a point where they mentioned like Oh there was a bunch of and I'm not gonNA swear I'm not going to necessarily use slurs on here but like I'll just say like like a bunch of the F slur in New York were doing this. So I decided to do it myself. And it's just like I'd much rather hear about these queer folks in New York who have figured out. Yes. Whole System. that. Sounded fascinating and I can't remember the name of it is. But. Yeah and even like this desire to show us some morally grey character and they went with the the most obvious simple trope of like guy who is homophobic and really racist and they don't address that at all. He just drops a bunch of like super racist slurs and just move on from there and but now he's become sort of like this anti hero whose like helping the Queer community and people who have AIDS and like anti-establishment but like a really basic sort of almost. Completely unknown nuanced way. In sort of like now, he's like morally gray instead of what would actually be interesting is to watch someone who is part of the community but maybe conflicted about it someone who in real life you know there were all those buyers clubs in I believe it was the Dallas Club in the Fort Lauderdale Club were like the pirate cowboy clubs and everybody else was like you are you going too far for us? And the complex of actually everybody trying to tackle this problem in taking these risks because they had to. That is a fascinating story and the the struggle of trying to help each other and even the point of this Some of the other activists I was reading of the time are really upset about the way that the FDA was portrayed in this film. And actually that we're talking about this idea that. There were so many good people in the FDA who were working with them, who listen to them, who made changes with them, and they none none of what they were able to accomplish with without those people who were really upset that you know they were sort of painted as these kind of like you know the government, it's almost like it almost becomes like an anti vaccine story instead of like a story about the complexities of this struggle as intersection with like the conservativism, it's the FDA and Queer Phobia and all these ideas. It just becomes sort of like government doctors bad. Racist Cowboy Man. Good. But also so he treats everyone around him terribly and we just kind of go with it. I. Mean You bring up a lot of really interesting. Things that I've. I've I've been quietly ruminating on and. I mean I have my notes. Like pronounced only know that I really made is that like doubtfire club feels like angels in America for straight people like I can see that like kind of like You know it felt very like. Like like. Pointed to be like well, you know we can't make big money off of like a story about the gays. So like what if you know? We made it about..

Michelle Pfeiffer James Remar in here and I'll just make what lies beneath and it turned out to be a huge hit and it was a terrific movie and then they went back and shot the rest of cast away one of my favorite things it was like what the hell I really I've never been a huge fan of cast away outside of like I think the performance is great I think what what he's doing is great but I just like it's not something I'm gonna pop on I love that movie but what it does has given me is the fact that on the I live off the redline yes the Wilson redline yeah every day when I get home I just scream in my head yeah we'll see yeah I'm I I do cry when that happens the weight when he leaves the heart breaking it's heartbreaking I'm sorry well I love that movie I'm sorry Tom Hanks is great in that movie it's a cost rate performance awesome performance yeah also terrifying plane crash what one of the most terrifying plane crashes ever filmed in that movie I absolutely horrifying so all right how bout this Natalie Portman black swan Natalie Portman during a punishing schedule for her role as ballerina in black swan which left her fearing she was going to die the waif like twenty nine year old lost twenty pounds for the role she's already like she can't weigh more than like ninety five pounds so she lose you lose twenty pounds I mean she is are you she is unbelievably skinny and black and black swan and she was already in believe within that report I mean it's just like you look at and you go oh my god that's such a good movie I still have a hard time watching it as much as I do I think that might be my favorite Aronofsky when you have a hard time what because it's just because it's tough movie to watch it what I mean yeah it's a Noske so it's tough to watch but she does there's the scene where she's picking at her yeah you're now yep yep and he feels it yeah see see look at you you're it's also it's awesome it is but I'm just like I I just can't handle that it's a freaky movie man I may be a black swan blacks on people you know they they don't admit it because it because the genre doesn't get the respective deserves what's once a horror movie it's a horror movie so was mother mother is a horror movie to but the books once again with many got all that claim economy for the academy award Natalie Portman one nobody ever use the word horror to describe blacks want it's a horror movie get over it people and it's a great one so if you lose twenty pounds eating more a little more than carrots and almonds she spent eight hours a day in rehearsals but she ended up marrying the guy who choreographed the movie and having kids with them but yes so it was I mean she just did worked out like a maniac didn't eat much and she looked like a twig in blacks want it works in the movie the only work within that within the context of the movie we examine ballerinas yeah you know well now you look a skinny Jessica Harper isn't Xperia you know to me like she's a twig but she's a little she's a little woman anyway you know she's got a podcast called Winnetka cold with that because she's from Winnetka we would act yeah just Harper's local girl well I'll be darned yeah I love her man in her part in the in the remake is expiry was beautiful I like the casting of her in that role beautiful left yeah so anyway all right let's take a quick break we'll come back we're talking about actors and actresses who made it really extreme body transformation for roles in movies if you want to jump in at three one two nine eight one seven two hundred everybody's.

I do keep playing to explain to you the prophecy low Masa. Yep. Nothing much say there, and nobody nothing can't tell me nothing because he's a cowboy because he has a horse. I think it's the horse's giving him a sense of confidence and doesn't have a horse. It's like fucking dare you to try and says I'm up here playboy, I do think that horses in give you a sense of confidence have you ever horse. Yes. And I remember it fondly. Yeah. I believe that was the day that I. Went through puberty. Oh my God. I think I got up on that horse horse while. Yeah, that's cool. Right. Sure. Very true. It does sound very true. Which is why won't go into any more. Details about it. I liked the way they need says. Like, you can't tell me. They can't nobody tell me. He's like, yeah. I'm having trouble feeling connected. His vocal at all. Because it just sounds. So auto tuned. It sounds like a robot. Yeah. Or? Yeah. I really I'm tired of. I'm tired of it. I'm ready for the music industry to go back to more raw style. Vocals. I like auto tune when it's used by people as like a sound share. Yes. Or like when Konya where it's clearly this is not an attempt to make them sound better. It's just pain. Yeah. Like, yeah. The prototypical, go example. But I think he actually has pipes though. And when Tepa came out everyone's like fucking auto tuning which feels shitty for singer back. The fuck off rooms the monster. You didn't think we watched the out singer? Did you listeners fucking it? It's love you. How do we get out of this hole where I called our listeners idiots? I don't have any more clips this long as done. So. Oh, wow. You thought I came. I was like, yeah. We gotta do this song. And I'm like, okay. That's thirties. Say we got I texted me all caps at three in the morning is not. I would never be texting three in the morning. I'm still up watching movies. That's actually a fact. Shush. Please stop. I was watching Dogo. I can't get horsemen. I texted her because I was like our guest had to reschedule. And I was like, oh, well, maybe we can still do something. There's there any song that you would want to do that. We could do a quick turnaround on and we couldn't think of anything, but I was like in my head. I can't stop thinking about doing something for all tower, which kind of was because I had been listening to it. No. You're obsessed with this. I listen to all the time like in my car alone with no one around and just sing along to it. What what are like about it? I just think it's so fun. It's like both a completely serious song a goofy song. And I just think there's something very fun about bridging that gap of being like, it's a real song work went into it. But it's like you can't tell who's being serious and who's not until certain lines next verse. You just be like this is a joke. Sung right. Okay. We'll play for me. Yeah. That was it. Own. The move. Cowboy from right. Did he say bull riding in movies? You sure did fun thing about that line. The full line is my life is a movie bull riding and Bubis. That is a reference the Dallas buyers club what? Yeah, he said. Well, it's just like the setup for Ron Woodruff's life. He's like at a rodeo. And then you see them like sleeping with women or something you I'm sorry. You think I remember Dallas buyers club much better than I do. I remember Jared Leto won an Oscar. Yeah. Cool. That's it. I mean, I mean, I don't remember while they're ruled rich Ron Woodruff is McConnell his character. You know, the native that character. Yeah. Dallas buyers club don't act like this is some underground sleeper..

"Is a great lake libertarian. I mean, it's it's a movie about a bunch of guys who. Outta the academic sector because you can't really do anything launch a small business to solve a real problem. And then get shut down by the EPA and end up having to argue effectively, the EPA or the city health authority or whatever. And then end up having to go to the mayor's office like to argue for their for that like they have a reason to exist because they will save the city. It's a great movie about like about entrepreneurship and about how regulation is just a power grab that actually hurts people. What about the lady reboot still libertarian lesson? Lesson. I will go next because the regulation angled got played down a little bit. It's the same. It's the same story only a little bit less funny. The Dallas buyers club. You stole my choice. Well, she's gone back. I had to pull the rug out from you guys should fight over can you guys? Join. We already are. We aren't alternate. Go ahead. Mad light like like one of those Oscars straight out together. It's basically, it's basically Peter story. It's about the true story of or Trish of Ron Woodruff an aids patient Ghostbusters is not a true. So. Oh, are you? Sure about that. Who is diagnosed in the eighties and found that people couldn't get the right to drugs. The right cocktails of drugs into end, the FDA would not approve anything FDA is even a bigger villain than the EPA isn't Ghostbusters here. And he starts a smuggling unapproved treatments to help people in in the Dallas areas. And it's it's it's great. A Matthew mcconaughey is phenomenal minute as his journey lead up. They both won Oscars in it in his directed. In one of the reasons why I like it as a libertarian movies that the director, French guy, John, Mark valet? And I'm just guessing purely because he's French that he didn't wake up in the morning saying I'm going to make a libertarian movie. I just made a movie about a thing that happened and the story and that helps I think make it even a become a more potent. Nick few to add anything to my embellishments. Now, I think it's a fantastic movie. And yeah as. I mean, you know, what's great and the sauce. Atro- Ghostbusters is that their libertarian, you know, kind of directionally or temperamentally, but they're they're not dogmatic films in any way, shape or form, which makes them in good rain filled with I mean, they're not they're not just sort of like, well, this is kind of interesting because it speaks to whatever ideological priors. It's that the that if you don't share those ideological priors, or you don't have any at all like a lot of people, you you won't necessarily notice that there is a kind of ideological direction -ality to the movie underpinning sort of a fanatic underpinning that supports that stuff. And you will notice that these movies are really delightfully made and entertaining that they fulfil the the first job of a movie, which is to to make you enjoy it for a couple of hours. My my entry fits right into this mode, which is home alone, a true libertarian. In which MacAulay Culkin is basically the blackwater of his own home. God and also free range parenting at its best the end, I think the only thing bad said he accepts the parents back at the end. It didn't have squatters rights on the house. He should have at that point them. Yeah. That's correct. Well, I'll follow up with a movie that somewhat similar and is the incredible. The original incredible incredible. Stew is also good. But you know, that movie was read by many. Although the director Brad bird ended up saying absolutely not. But as kind of mine rand animated tale of people who were being forced to hide their superiority because it would it it was unfair. Or it would the government was against it in the in the context of the movie, the superheroes have been actually made a legal and forced to go undercover. Because they were too spectacular too. Good at what they did. But my reading of that. As an strove a lot of Pixar movies as well as the real hero of the of the of the pieces syndrome who is the normal. Non mutant non superpower guy who ends up creating all sorts of inventions and gadgets in order to make himself super powered and offset a sell to rogue nations in various ways and in a weird way. I think a lot of times movies, whatever the main story telling there's s secret acculturated, and I think that when we look at somebody like syndrome, and we see, you know, something about individual ambition and self fulfillment and trying to create what you are not become a full version of. However, you define yourself is actually the best libertarian element of. So you're saying that Benicio del Toro was the secret hero of the last Jedi. Yeah. Pretty much buddy. And in Toy Story is clearly the hero the next door neighbor who takes the toys and turns them into whatever he wants have you been obviously a lot of recently. Peter. I was I was writing these readings for a raisin for toys story like whenever it came out nineteen ninety-five or something. I Trump stunning. Literally before sunny bunches born, I was reading college film school, a treatises on how the only moral character in rear window was Raymond Burr. So it's take that sunny bunch. That's all the Sunday bunch takes who could possibly sunny bunch does sound like a made up. Hey, you guys I have just one question because I I missed some of the news while I was away is soda illegal in California. Now did that happen while I was gone. Not yet. There's some kind of additional you can't. Or is it that you're not allowed to sell it over a certain amount of like did they do like a statewide big goal LaCroix as mandatory. That's fine.

"We're also poking holes in all of your celebrity truths. Prisoners now, Hollywood's work in your damn last nerve. Let's work in my last nerve. Yes. And we have an opener for that somewhere. Let's roll that. Colleen and Bradley present in my last nerve last. What's my last nerve is the fact that the bohemian rhapsody movie is going to release a full version of the Live Aid concert. Now that seems pretty harmless, right? So bohemian rhapsody the Queen bio-pic it's a big hit at the boxoffice FOX number one at the box office. Well, part of the reason why people like this movie so much is that it recreates some classic Queen concerts, including the Live Aid concert in one thousand nine hundred five when other most famous appearances ever on stage. Well that entire concert apparently the film crew shot and recreated the whole thing. Wow. Top to bottom. Okay. And they only show a little bit of it in the actual movie. Well, it has been announced that the entire recreation of the Live Aid concert is going to be released special edition little add onto the movie. So why? Why is that working your last nerve that we don't need that? We don't need it. Why do we need? A why why do you want to go and pay extra money? Why? Because it's too much Bradley. Why do we need to go and watch people recreate an iconic concert when Bradley on your internet? You can watch the entire thing as it actually happened. This was the point that you made earlier that I totally thought was a valid point. Like, you know, why not make it? I mean, hey, they wanna do something. Awesome. But your point earlier was you already go watch the thing on your YouTube. Yeah. And you can watch the real thing you can why wouldn't they prefer? If you were a superfan, you'd probably want to watch the real I would want to watch the real thing. So why would you wanna watch a second re recreation of something that you actually love when you can go watch the thing that you actually love it's already online go enjoy yourself. Why do you wanna watch four actor dudes acting in front of a green screen because that's what they're doing? They did not actually fill the stadium up with people. Really? So they didn't actually look fill a stadium full of people. It's moving magic, Bradley. Let's even more of a dumb thing. Like, why do I wanna watch you? You're just dumb thing deal. Woo. The real thing. Thank you. Exactly. And this just goes with something else that works molasses nerve is Hollywood's obsession with bio-pics and recreating things that happened in the pan. Tell me more about that. What do you mean by that? Meaning for example, take a look at who's won the Academy Awards for the past decade past twenty years when you look through the list of people who have won for best actor best actress it often become what was the Churchill won the darkest hour darkest hour, Gary Oldman one for playing Winston Churchill. This is an impression of a real person. Why are we so fascinated with people impressed and doing anniversary, Margaret Thatcher? Thank you, the list goes on and on and on and on. Thanks, many people. Well, he actually didn't win his Oscars for playing real life people. Nobody has done that. But he has done that. Well, he's playing Mr. Rogers, mister Rogers, Walt Disney. Snee-? Yes. Exactly. Yeah. Phillips. Yeah. Exactly. So why are we so obsessed with people recreating? Why do you think I mean, do you have an answer for this is a very good question. Yeah. Well, you know, one of the reasons I think that people are so fascinated by this is because when you're doing an impression of a real life person, you have a metric of measurement. You're able to look at somebody's performance and say, okay, here's the real Winston Churchill Gary Oldman. So we can watch Gary Oldman, and we can judge his performance based on something that actually exist. Whereas with an original character. It's something that the actor creates entirely of their own. Yeah. Basic, that's so cheap. Because like, you know, rich little versus, you know. I don't know another amazing act. I'm just saying like impressions are like a wholly different thing. But you're right. It's very easy for an audience to go. That was a great performance because I really felt like I was watching Winston Churchill. Yeah. And same thing with. Siemian rhapsody now Remy Malik who stars. As Freddie Mercury is getting a lot of praise for his performance because they're basing it off of the real life. Freddie. Mercury and his performance on how the real life man, actually was working last nerve, Bradley leads a little lace and 'bio-pics and what? Yeah. Re-creations? Why do we have to recreate something unless you know, if we have the footage? I don't know it's working last nerve can Ruskin. No, I think that's totally valid. I am here for that conversation about bio-pics and reenactments because oftentimes I think those characters are oversimplified, and, you know, people just want to be served up a very stereotypical portrayal of like you have to. I would imagine there's incredible pressure when you are performing a certain role that you get that stereotypical version of that person down, right? Even though actors wall, we tell you that they don't do that. But like, you kind of have to write because the audience has a very, I would think it would actually I don't know. I would not want to do that. If I were an actor. But let me read you who's won the best actor for the past like seven or eight years. So Gary Oldman for Winston Churchill Eddie red main won an Oscar for playing Stephen hawking real person. A really good Matthew, mcconaughey. I believe Ron Woodruff and bells buyer's club real person. Oh, Daniel day. Lewis played ABRAHAM LINCOLN. Sean Penn Harvey milk for milk forest, Whittaker Idi Amin for the last king of Scotland Truman Capote Philip Seymour. Hoffman Jamie, FOX played Ray Charles one Oscar for that. Let's go ahead. So you just think that perhaps it's a little too easy. I think you're crazy. But it's just easy. I want people expand their minds. So if you want to go and watch Queen perform Live Aid, go do yourself a favor. Go to YouTube original watched the original one. There's no need for the entire Live Aid concert recreation to be issued in addition to bohemian.

The part and of course he didn't look exactly, like her but he he mirrored her mannerisms and really just inhabited. The role but he also did an amazing, Barbra Streisand. Phyllis Diller, I mean there are other people that he impersonated and he he did pass away in two. Thousand fifteen, but Holly it's those kinds. Of people I'm endlessly fascinated, by like I just want to know how they not only do what, they, do right but also how they decided that that's what they, wanna do and you know things like as simple, as like do they stay in character when you talk, to the you know what? I mean like it's just there's so, many. Questions, right well what, draws somebody how did they discover? The fact how did Jim Bailey? Understand that he could do a, great, Judy Garland and And that. This is something that's not too obviously knew, excuse me. That clip, was from nineteen seventy that was from the Ed Sullivan show yeah he was literally doing this. For a, living back in the sixties. And seventies in a way, that nobody else was doing and certainly at a level that nobody else, was, doing it in key continued to do it throughout his entire, life and we still honor as a culture today, impersonations I would argue that were more fascinated with celebrity, impressions then you even know? Case in point think back to the, Academy. Awards, maybe in the, past ten to fifteen years the? People who have won best actor? And best actress Oscars for the, most, part That award, has basically become best celebrity impersonator of the year. You, were saying that earlier and I want you, to expand a little bit on it's. You're essentially saying that we are. Rewarding people who are able to do great. Celebrity impersonations, so, give me, some, example so for example even in this past year the best actor Oscar went to Gary Oldman oh. Yeah for, playing Winston Churchill in darkest hour and that was a really good movie. By. The way and that was a good movie it was a good performance but what may that performance better than the other ones now there were not it looks like there nobody else was playing a real life person who was nominated for, best actor but we decided Gary Oldman was. The best person now looking back through maybe the past ten. Years keep it to the past ten, years best actor for the Academy, Awards Eddie red main won an Oscar for, Stephen Stephen hawking also Matthew mcconaughey hey I believe that Ron. Woodruff was a real From, the Dallas buyers club Daniel Day-Lewis ABRAHAM LINCOLN, Colin Firth Colin Firth playing King George. The six and the king's speech. And Sean Penn.
