All I know about Pensacola is that the beaches are lousy with sharks. Was that your experience growing up there? Oh honey, no, no! The beaches are incredible! Out here in California, in the Pacific Ocean, the sharks have a bad attitude. But not in the Gulf Coast. Does Florida technically count as the South?
I feel like New Orleans is home. I was immersed in the conservatory. And they mean business. You kind of stay confined in the walls of drama. Oh absolutely. My very first acting job ever, the first time I got paid to be an actress, was in , right between my sophomore and junior year in college, when I was just 19 years old.
I was Calpurnia in Julius Caesar. Holy crap. That was a thousand times more convincing than a Gwyneth Paltrow movie.
Would you do that famous line from Julius Caesar, where Calpurnia begs her husband not to venture out during the ides of March.
That was beautiful. Definitely not! I have never done that. I have never handled the weed situation. But Victoria loves it. She lives by it. Is that intentional? The inflection in your voice is almost identical.
I hope not. That would be genius. Can we go ahead and announce it as being a real thing? Is that too presumptuous? Please do. I second that motion.
I had a ball during that shoot. I spent seven days in Shreveport, Louisiana, working on my scenes. Not at all! You know what I mean? Are there going to be a lot of gratuitous boob shots? There might be an aspect of that, but No, not at all. Not with my daddy watching everything I do. My body double? Not really. We finished doing the scene where Danny and I were making out in the car, and my shirt was supposed to be coming off. The boobs. Darling, can I tell you something? It was an interesting situation.
I was gone in a hot second. Oh my God! I got my Bluetooth set up a few weeks ago, and I finally learned how to use it. If I can just get the windows tinted a little bit, I could stay in here all day. But the cell-phone reception is terrible. If I was on a highway or a dirt road someplace in the middle of nowhere, I would totally do it. Vanity Fair has a team of lawyers. Honey, any other day of the week, on any other stretch of road, I can be a daredevil. But not here. There are kids playing on the street!
What if I lost control? When I first moved out here, I was driving a Chevy Blazer that my parents gave me after college, and I totaled it. The other guy hit me. And after that I got a Ford Focus, which was a great car.
I went to the Carnegie Mellon School of Drama. Nothing but beer bongs and wet-shirt contests? And Shakespeare? Thank you, honey. Oh my god! I would do it in a millisecond.
