I think my favorite love stories,
now that I think about it,
with very sort of messed up women.
[Interviewer] Let's do Breakfast at--
Breakfast at Tiffany's, I just love it.
She's like a character I would be attracted to
in the sense that she has a great vulnerability,
and great strength,
and sort of has built this life for herself
in order to...
change her reality.
To find love, she couldn't lie any longer.
And a man who's willing to stand by a woman
who is sort of trapped by the persona
that she creates for herself.
I think Joaquin is my cinematic crush right now.
Of course now he's gonna know,
and he's gonna be like that's so weird.
I bother him all the time that I'm gonna
try to pitch a musical to him.
I'd do anything with him, you know.
I'm like let's do live theater down
on the 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica.
I could probably talk him into that easier
than I could talk him into doing a musical.
