  • What is your favorite occupation?

  • Obviously, the one I get to do I love.

  • I don't know bad people like I don't know.

  • People are racist, shitty people.

  • I don't have one.

  • I don't have a regret.

  • Thankfully, I try to do things that I won't regret.

  • I always find that everything literally happens for a reason.

  • It takes whatever that instance was to learn from it.

  • Honestly, how would you like to die?

  • Huh?

  • Uh, how like answering those kinds of questions?

  • Like, what is your motto?

  • Yeah, my motto is, don't be an asshole.

  • Mhm.

  • So that concludes the questionnaire.

  • Very well.

  • How was that?

  • How was it actually stressful?

  • I'm not gonna lie to you.

  • It's really hard for me to pick one thing.

  • I don't have a favorite movie.

  • I don't have a favorite color.

  • I don't have a favorite food.

  • I never have my whole life.

  • I never was like, Oh, this is my favorite color.

  • This is my favorite food as a kid.

  • It's kind of a personality trait of mine.

  • Is the inability to quite specifically choose anything?

  • Which question was the hardest one to answer the hardest one to answer when it's like, how do you want to die?

  • It's like I don't want to answer that question.

  • Hopefully want to die like fulfilled and happy.

  • Like, you know, you said that you where you'd like to live is somewhere on a lot of land where I can just kind of hideout and, like, I don't know, have, like, a vegetable garden and shit.

  • Can you tell us why?

  • I like the idea of kind of being in a space where you're kind of detached from, like, the world a little bit and you can just walk around and be in nature?

  • I actually found this when When we were shooting Malcolm memory because we kind of lived in this ranch thing altogether.

  • This kind of small bubble of our production, Um, and we shot also in a place that was kind of in the middle of nowhere.

  • And it was actually really, really nice, you know, to kind of be detached from everything.

  • And, um, every day I would like, see deer like, you know, running around and I don't know, you just feel more appreciative for all these little things.

  • But then also in the same token, I wish I lived in New York because I love the hustle and bustle of it.

  • I love being able to take the subway and walk around and do stuff, so I don't know.

  • It's like two sides.

  • So in response to your favorite writers, you said Sam Levinson.

  • Yeah.

  • Can you tell us why?

  • Why?

  • Because Sam is a genius, In my opinion, I think he's brilliant.

  • And, um, he has a way of being honest and open and vulnerable about his own personal stories and his own life, which we've seen through euphoria and, um now, in some ways, through Malcolm and Marie.

  • But he also is, I think, a true collaborator as well.

  • I talked to him almost every day, and while you know, even now while he's writing Season two or you know, when we were, uh, starting the initial conversations about Malcolm and Marine, he was writing the script and he'd read me 10 pages at a time, and then we'd talk about it for hours on end.

  • You know, he values, I think, collaboration and other people's ideas and experiences and opinions.

  • And I think that, uh, even when I back on euphoria when I wasn't a producer yet, you know, I still felt that what I had to contribute was being listened to and valued.

  • And plus I know it's bad, but I don't I don't read as much as I should.

  • I'm trying to get better at that.

  • And I often get bored, like reading.

  • I get either bored or I get, like, anxious because I'm only I'm just thinking about how many more pages I have left to read, especially if I have to read a script and they need an answer by, you know, Wednesday.

  • Sam is one of the few people that his writing doesn't ever make me tune out.

  • I'm engaged and care about all of the characters from the beginning, and I just want to keep reading, which is very rare for me.

  • When I asked you which talent you would most like to have you said some sport or, you know, martial art or something of that sort.

  • What are some physical activities that you would want to maybe become proficient?

  • Remember when I did greatest showman and I had to work out every day and I got to do this trapeze training just how cool that was that I was developing this new skill in this new talent for something and watching kind of my body transform and watching get better every day as I went back to training and, um got up there and climb that ladder and, you know, jumped off and, you know, I I felt my body find out what it was capable of as it was happening, and that was really, really special.

  • So I wish I had developed more of those kind of physical talents as well.

  • In response to the question, What is your greatest extravagance?

  • You actually said Probably just the fact that I get to do what I do for a living.

  • Why is that a part of my job?

  • As I also get to wear beautiful clothes that are, like, you know, handmade and custom made for me sometimes and, you know, extremely expensive.

  • And, you know, it is crazy.

  • Um and I I mean, I respect the art and the work that goes into a garment, but it is pretty crazy that that's part of my life.

  • You know that?

  • That's like I get to do these things and, like travel places, like to promote a movie that I'm in like that's just such a crazy concept, you know, I'm so lucky that that's what I get to do and get to call my my day job.

  • So final question, which is Do you think these questions have revealed your true nature?

  • Um I mean, yeah, Like I said, I'm definitely a bad liar.

  • So everything that's said is true.

  • I guess the true nature I think of all of this is that I am still growing and learning.

  • And so maybe that's why I can't answer a lot of the questions because I'm still in a phase of growth and understanding who I am.

  • Even I I think I'm lucky and unlucky that I'm doing it in front of the world.

  • But I think my indecisiveness maybe reflects the fact that I am still figuring it out.
