    I find it slightly unsettling that you consistently focus on a female subject’s “attractiveness,” always quoting from other sources, and usually at the head of an interview, as though it were something to “get out of the way” before delving into the heart of the matter. Why mention it at all? Is her perspective on being called “hot” interesting?

  2. David Poland says:

    1. Google her.

    2. In this case, much of the focus was sudden fame… and with it, intense public attention.

    3. Yes, it is often an issue with women in this business and yes, better to get it out of the way early on.

“Studios treat audiences like lemmings, like cattle in a stockyard. I don’t want to ask actors or anyone else on a movie to work so hard with me if the studios treat us as though we’re making Big Macs. The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo is not a Big Mac. Gone Girl is not a Big Mac.”

“We’re on our way out. Anybody that doesn’t realize that is looking like it’s Christmas or something. We’re on our way out, as a culture. America doesn’t make anything anymore! The Chinese make it! Detroit’s a great example. All of those cities that used to be something. If you go to a truck stop in Sallisaw, Oklahoma, you’ll probably see the face of America. How desperate we are. Really desperate. Just raw.”
