I got into this crazy fight with a paparazzi guy from TMZ – they were trying to film Michelle [Williams] and her daughter Matilda. I had said not to film Matilda because she’s six years old.
After [Michelle and Matilda] left, I went up to him and looked at him right in the eye, and I said, “Can I just ask you a question? Do you have kids in your life? I don’t know if you’re a dad or not, but do you have nieces or nephews, or people that you love that have children? Do you have that?” He was like, “Fuck you, I don’t have to talk to you.” I said, “I get it, I get it. I really just want talk to you about this because I want to know what about [Matilda’s] body language of being curled up on her mom’s shoulder that you think it was okay to keep yelling and talking to her? Because that was a little girl; she wasn’t a celebrity, she’s six years old.”
For that photographer, he couldn’t deal with me coming straight to him and talking to him like a person. Then he went nuts, calling me crazy names. At one point, he was like crouched on the ground and he called me a piece of trash. I said, “I’m sorry, I just have to comment on the irony of this situation, sir. You’re on the ground in an alley, and I am going to get into my SUV and drive away.
Busy Philipps on Cougar Town, Freaks and Geeks, and Being a ‘Talking Prop’ on Dawson’s Creek -- Vulture
I love Busy Philipps (I was disappointed she couldn’t make the Austin CT viewing party). This is a terrific interview.
“Sorry Jules, but you’re not in a relationship yet. It has to last at least nine days before I consider it real. It’s the same rule I have for hair extensions and foster parents.”
Less than a week, whoop! Although I’ve already seen episode one (and three and four.. or was it four and five? Whichever ones they showed at the viewing party).
I Don’t Know How She Does It, 2011.
A couple reasons I am now looking forward to seeing this movie (whether it’s a stinker or not):
- Busy Philipps is in it!!! (see above)
- The preview screening I’m attending (but can’t take a friend to, boo) will be at the Violet Crown Cinema, and this will be my first time there.
It’s tough to hear a Sarah Jessica Parker voiceover and not immediately think, “Sex and the City? Where??” But SJP’s latest project isn’t a third big-screen Sex outing — it’s an adaptation of Allison Pearson’s best-selling novel, I Don’t Know How She Does It, which follows a woman who simultaneously manages a hedge fund and her two young children.
The real reason we care about the movie, though, is Christina Hendricks. Hey, Hollywood! Put Christina Hendricks in every movie!
I spy Busy Philipps!! and Greg Kinnear with glasses, *sigh*.
It’s like when you hook up with a dude and then you wake up the next morning and he’s gone and there’s just a note on your pillow that says “last night was fun, call me next time you’re in Tampa” and you’re like what? I’m in Tampa?
oh, Laurie, you are my favorite.
