00:04
I actually grew up obsessed with IMDB,
00:07
IMDB was like my first love and so I grew up obsessed
00:10
with film and film making but I never considered
00:13
it would be a possibility for me to be an actor.
00:16
This is actually kind of sad,
00:18
I memorized child actor's birthdays.
00:21
I think it was actually just because I really wanted
00:24
to be like them, I really wanted to be an actor
00:28
and the only people I could relate to in the industry
00:31
I guess were other kids.
00:33
Birthdays, oh my God, it's not cute at all,
00:35
it's really serial killer.
00:37
I've had weird talents like that my whole life,
00:39
like if you give me a word I can say it backwards.
00:41
I can juggle five balls.
00:44
I memorized all my friends birthdays as well.
00:47
So it wasn't the only weird talent I had
00:50
or just weird obsession I guess.
00:52
I'm gonna give you a few of my celebrity crushes.
00:55
One is Faye Dunaway in Bonnie and Clyde,
00:58
both Katharine Ross and Anne Bancroft in The Graduate.
01:02
Bel Powley I have a huge crush on.
01:04
And also the English accent is just amazing.
01:09
I read once that like 90%, I could be pulling this
01:12
percentage out of nowhere, some percentage of why you
01:16
fall in love with someone or what draws you to someone
01:20
is their voice.
01:21
Something about her voice I guess caught me.
01:24
I watched her Gotham Awards acceptance speech,
01:28
just found her to be tremendously charming and sweet.
01:32
She was in a play that I really love, Arcadia, on Broadway,
01:36
which I can't even imagine how she did that
01:38
at such a young age.
01:40
And she's like two years older then me.
01:42
Ratatouille is one of my all time favorite movies
01:45
and does just about everything to me.
01:47
I would actually say one of my cinematic crushes
01:49
is the cook that Linguini falls in love with.
01:51
Is like, I kinda have a crush on her.
01:54
I kind of think that I am kind of like Linguini,
01:56
if they did a live action version of Rataouille
01:58
I think I'd make a good Linguini.
02:00
My biggest pet peeve is when somebody does an Indian accent,
02:04
when someone imitates somebody with an Indian accent.
02:06
It seems like so many people do it and it just seems to be
02:10
like not something people should do.
02:12
I was thinking about this one and I don't know if
02:15
I can say if my favorite love scene, I can tell you though
02:18
that I grew up watching The OC.
02:21
I very much enjoyed the making out scenes
02:23
when I was like in third grade.
02:26
Except my Mom had a curtain that she would pull over
02:29
the TV, so that we couldn't see it.
02:33
The OC meant a lot to me and there was some
02:36
lovely sex scenes, love scenes I guess, in that.
02:40
My first kiss was ninth grade and it was on this girl
02:46
in my grade's roof and there was a bunch of kids were
02:50
hanging out at the hot tub,
02:52
this big like hot tub party in the winter.
02:55
Me and this other girl, I don't need to go into great detail
02:57
but we were so nervous, we had like spoken to each other's
03:01
friends and there was an unspoken thing,
03:04
that like this was going to happen.
03:06
Literally just walked around the corner and kissed
03:10
and it was a weird sensation.
03:14
I just remember the first time it was very scary,
03:17
I was very nervous.
03:18
Definitely happy afterwards but I don't know
03:20
if I mustered up the courage to talk to her
03:23
again for another week just because it was so,
03:26
it was vulnerable, like yeah.
