4 Things I Learned from Nicole Holofcener's Interview with Spike Jonze

Posted by Alison Hallett on Thu, Jan 2, 2014 at 10:44 AM

1. I suspect that director Nicole Holofcener has been asked a lot of dumb junket interview questions (hopefully not by me), because she jokily opens the interview by asking Spike Jonze if he shaves his pubes.

2. James Gandolfini improvised some of the best lines in Holofcener's excellent movie Enough Said.

3. Amy Adams is delightful (okay, I suspected as much), and Nicole Holofcener wants to cast her in a movie.

4. Spike Jonze, whose forthcoming movie Her is about a man who falls in love with an operating system, describes his own relationship with technology as "nice."

The whole piece is worth a read, if you're a fan of either director—it begins as a fairly one-sided interview, and ends as a conversation between two excellent directors.
