Kind of a weird love scene, but from Rust and Bone.
00:09
I just think it's, you've never seen a love scene like that.
00:13
Well, Marion Cotillard has lost her legs,
00:15
and so she's also lost her
00:18
passion in life, and her will to live,
00:22
and she obviously hasn't had sex in a long time,
00:24
and then so he offers to try it out for her
00:27
so she can see if everything still works,
00:29
and it's really kind of an awkward love scene.
00:33
But then afterwards, she starts to come to life again
00:37
and she does that dance out on the terrace
00:39
to the Katy Perry song,
00:40
and that's one of my favorite scenes.
00:43
I mean, what movie doesn't make me cry?
00:46
I'm a really easy crier in movies.
00:49
(laughs)
00:51
I remember when I saw Toy Story 3, I was,
00:54
it was while we were shooting Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,
00:56
and it was after the week we did all of the rape scenes,
01:01
I watched that on my computer
01:02
and literally was scream-crying,
01:04
I mean, I was so upset at the end of that movie,
01:07
I just cried myself to sleep.
01:09
No, not when they go into the fire,
01:11
whenever, finally, Andy's decided to take his toys
01:14
and he's gonna give them to this other little girl
01:15
who doesn't have any toys,
01:17
and the entire movie, that's all they want,
01:19
is for Andy to play with them again
01:21
because he's all grown up now,
01:22
he doesn't play with them anymore.
01:23
Then they go through the whole journey,
01:25
they almost die in the fire and then Andy brings the toys
01:28
to this little girl who doesn't have any toys,
01:30
so he takes them out of the box and he starts
01:32
showing her how to play with them, and they're so,
01:34
I'm gonna cry just talking about it! (laughs)
01:36
They're so happy to finally have one last time
01:39
with Andy playing with them.
01:40
So I love that movie.
