  1. Lex says:

    Wait this is that hot chick from SCREAM 4 and FIVE YEAR ENGAGEMENT? Doesn’t even look like her.

  2. SamLowry says:

    Well, she is 23, so I guess on the Lex Scale she qualifies for AARP membership.

    (…and she was also the ex-GF from Hades in Scott Pilgrim. Gotta get that Pilgrim reference in there.)

    (…and I’m also glad to see her mug does say “Keep Calm and Carry On”–I’m starting to get really tired of The Chive.)

  3. Don R. Lewis says:

    I just met her tonight and am excited to see this interview. Talk about a genuinely NICE and intelligent woman….she’s awesome. So psyched SHORT TERM 12 won the narrative feature award tonight at SXSW too, I’m seeing it tomorrow. I cannot recommend Daniel Destin Crettin’s first feature I AM NOT A HIPSTER highly enough. Seek it out, it’s absolutely not waht you think.

  4. The Pope says:

    Ladies and Gentlemen,
    We give you the next Tracy Flick. Ambition. Youth. Energy. Intelligence. Confidence. Poise.

    And happily, in the eyes of this observer at least, completely lacking the unconscionable morass of self-entitlement that Flick had in abundance. Can’t wait to see how far she goes.

    Nice interview, David. Thanks.

Would you consider yourself a good person?
I would consider myself … decent as I got older. When I was younger I was less sensitive, in my 20s. But as I got older and began to see how difficult life was for everybody, I had more compassion for other people. I tried to act nicer, more decent, more honorable. I couldn’t always do it. When I was in my 20s, even in my early 30s, I didn’t care about other people that much. I was selfish and I was ambitious and insensitive to the women that I dated. Not cruel or nasty, but not sufficiently sensitive.
You viewed women as temporary fixtures?
Yes, temporary, but as I got older and they were humans suffering like I was … I changed. I learned empathy over the years.
~ Woody Allen To Sam Fragoso For NPR

“To my mind, this embracing of what were unambiguously children’s characters at their mid-20th century inception seems to indicate a retreat from the admittedly overwhelming complexities of modern existence. It looks to me very much like a significant section of the public, having given up on attempting to understand the reality they are actually living in, have instead reasoned that they might at least be able to comprehend the sprawling, meaningless, but at-least-still-finite ‘universes’ presented by DC or Marvel Comics. I would also observe that it is, potentially, culturally catastrophic to have the ephemera of a previous century squatting possessively on the cultural stage and refusing to allow this surely unprecedented era to develop a culture of its own, relevant and sufficient to its times.”
~ “Watchmen”‘s Alan Moore At His Alan Moore-iest
