I was scrolling through your tweets to find that Daniel Day-Lewis earring tweet and I came across some great "Family Stone" content. I really appreciate that you love "The Family Stone." I try to get my family to watch it every Christmas and they look at me like I'm a lunatic. The house is so cool. Everything is cool in that movie. I guess I don't really have a question here, just thanks for appreciating "The Family Stone."
The Family Stone is unparalleled! Really dramatic white dysfunctional family dramas — the kind that happen during a wedding or a holiday — are extremely my shit.
With Jada Yuan, you put together a really fantastic oral history of the making of Get Out. How do you figure out which quotes to use on a project like that? That might be a dumb question, but I figured I'd try.
I think there are two types of quotes in that story: ones about process and filmmaking, and quotes that are just telling a great story. The timeline and how everything came together is just reporting. My favorite quotes — the professor saying there will be a before Get Out and an after Get Out, and Lil Rel's hilarious barber story — just punctuate what we were trying to get at about how this movie was a really improbable and tricky hit to pull off.
Any big summer plans?
Rihanna declared that the vibe for summer is "more is more." So, basically, that.
