“She rested her head against his and felt, for the first time, what she would often feel with him: a self-affection. He made her like herself.”

In Wild, you play a character who’s addicted to heroin and sleeping around. We don’t often see you in projects like these.
You have to understand, for someone who’s been doing this for as long as I’ve been doing it, it’s like, “Oh my gosh, finally!” Finally, it’s so exciting to be honest about things. I developed it with my own money and an incredible producing partner, and then we went to the studios afterwards, because I did not want to hear, “We don’t want to see Reese doing that” or “We don’t want to include the sexual scenes.” Not that studios are bad — it’s just that sometimes when things go through too many filters and too many notes, they become distilled into something they weren’t from the beginning.

Because studio executives fear the notion that a female lead might be considered “unsympathetic”?
The ideas of what a woman can and can’t do on film have really changed, and I think that’s in great part thanks to wonderful female writers like Lena Dunham, who tell very honest stories and explore female sexuality without shame. Just recently, I saw Jenny Slate in Obvious Child — so great — and I love characters like that who are that unapologetic and realistic. Even Bridesmaids changed the landscape of what we can see a female lead doing in a film. I’m just excited to be a part of it. I’ve never seen a film like Wild where the woman ends up with no man, no money, no family, no opportunity, but she still has a happy ending.

I was going to write something about how I need the weekend, but with the Clemson game (Go Dawgs!) happening on Saturday, it’s not like this will be a restful weekend.

Labor Day is the light at the end of the tunnel.


"The Mindy Project was snubbed. They made her get up at 5:00 a.m. to announce the nominations and then they didn’t even nominate her! You know who was sleeping soundly? Perennial nominee Julie Bowen."

Bless you, Billy Eichner.

“That’s what I love about television. She doesn’t play hard to get. She doesn’t demand your attention. Television has always been the bootycall friend of entertainment. You don’t ever have to call TV and be like “you up?” because TV is always up. She’ll happily entertain you while you cook dinner or wrap your Christmas presents. She’s not like that diva Movies, who makes you put on pants, drive all the way out to her house and buy forty dollars worth of soda. No offense to Movies, but I’m gonna stick with TV.” Seth Meyers, The 66th Annual Primetime Emmy Awards (via alyssasaid)

This was a great little moment.
