Breakfast at Tiffany's, I just love it.
00:12
She's like a character I would be attracted to
00:13
in the sense that she has a great vulnerability,
00:17
and great strength,
00:17
and sort of has built this life for herself
00:20
in order to...
00:23
change her reality.
00:25
To find love, she couldn't lie any longer.
00:29
And a man who's willing to stand by a woman
00:31

I'd do anything with him, you know.

I could probably talk him into that easier
