More Things That Make Me Happy

This Interview makes me happy, and this quote in particular:

AVC: When does being opinionated and having ideas become being high-maintenance?

MG: [Laughs.] Yeah, that's interesting. Well, I think it depends on what you're defending. If you're defending something artistic and something that you believe is really important to the work that you're doing, and you're able to listen and you're able to be wrong, then I don't really see how that can be a problem. But if you're defending your right to have an assistant and a big trailer, then of course that's a problem right away. Some people would probably disagree with that and say you need what you need to work, but I need very little to work, because I learned how to make movies on tiny movies. It's all kind of easy for me.

In case you're wondering, I do think that's a sexist question, but she answers it with class.

The fact that she replaced Katie Cruise in this film doesn't just make me happy, it makes me ecstatic.

Who in Hollywood has more class than this lady? Classy and talented.

Oh, and yes, she's a Democrat.

I think I'm in love.

Yes, she is one performer I rate very, very high.

"Secretary" is on my personal list of films to take to a desert island.
