00:01
I think my favorite love stories,
00:03
now that I think about it,
00:04
with very sort of messed up women.
00:07
[Interviewer] Let's do Breakfast at
00:08
[laughs]
00:09
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
who is sort of trapped by the persona
00:34
that she creates for herself.
00:36
Yeah.
00:37
I think Joaquin is my cinematic crush right now.
00:40
Of course now he's gonna know,
00:41
and he's gonna be like that's so weird.
00:42
I bother him all the time that I'm gonna
00:44
try to pitch a musical to him.
00:46
I'd do anything with him, you know.
00:48
I'm like let's do live theater down
00:50
on the 3rd Street Promenade in Santa Monica.
00:53
I could probably talk him into that easier
00:55
than I could talk him into doing a musical.
