  • >> Stephen: WELCOME BACK, EVERYBODY.

  • YOU KNOW MY FIRST GUEST FROM MOVIES LIKE "ATONEMENT" AND

  • "BROOKLYN."

  • SHE NOW STARS IN ONE OF THE BEST MOVIES I'VE EVER SEEN "LADY

  • BIRD."

  • >> DARLENE, CAN YOU EXCUSE US?

  • >> DARLENE, STAY.

  • >> WHY AREN'T YOU IN ALGEBRA TWO.

  • >> I SWITCHED SECTIONS.

  • >> WHY?

  • >> AREN'T JENNA AND KYLE ENOUGH?

  • >> I'M SORRY THAT YOU'RE JEALOUS.

  • >> JENNA IS A MORON, YOU KNOW.

  • >> SHE'S NOT, SHE'S IN A.P. CALCULUS.

  • >> HOW DO YOU ASSIGN THE ROLE BY THE WAY.

  • YOU JUST NEVER SHOWED UP TO CLAIM IT.

  • >> WHAT ROLE?

  • >> THE TEMPEST.

  • >> THERE IS NO ROLE OF THE TEMPEST.

  • IT'S A MADE-UP THING SO WE ALL CAN CAP PARTICIPATE.

  • >> YOU CAN'T DO ANYTHING UNLESS YOU'RE THE CENTER OF ATTENTION,

  • YOU CAN.

  • >> YEAH, WELL YOU KNOW YOUR MOM (BLEEP) ARE FAKE, TOTALLY FAKE.

  • >> SHE MADE ONE BAD DECISION AT 19.

  • >> TWO BAD DECISION!

  • PLEASE WELCOME SAOIRSE RONAN.

  • ♪ ♪ ♪ ( APPLAUSE )

  • >> WE'RE BACK!

  • >> Stephen: WELCOME BACK.

  • >> WE'RE BACK TOGETHER AGAIN?

  • >> WE ARE.

  • BY POPULAR DEMAND.

  • >> BY POPULAR DEMAND.

  • >> Stephen: THANKS SO MUCH FOR BEING HERE.

  • >> THANKS SO MUCH FOR SAYING SUCH LOVELY THINGS ABOUT THE

  • FILM.

  • >> Stephen: I ABSOLUTE-- THIS FILM WAS ABSOLUTELY-- WE HAD

  • GRETA GERWIG ON, AND I TALKED TO HER ABOUT THIS, BUT I'M

  • ABSOLUTELY DEVASTATED BY THIS FILM.

  • IT IS FUNNY.

  • IT IS BEAUTIFUL.

  • IT'S HEARTBREAKING.

  • IT'S HOPEFUL.

  • AND-- AND I THINK I COULD PROBABLY GIVE AWAY THE ENTIRE

  • PLOT-- I'M NOT GOG-- BUT THE ENTIRE PLOT OF THE MOVIE AND IT

  • WOULDN'T AFFECT PEOPLE'S EXPERIENCE BECAUSE IN SOME

  • MOVIES YOU'RE WAITING FOR THE EXPLOSION OR THE BIG EVENT.

  • >> EXACTLY.

  • IT'S NOT OVERLY DRAMATIC AT ALL.

  • >> Stephen: THE BIG EVENT OF THIS MOVIE IS EVERY MOMENT IN

  • THE MOVIE.

  • PEOPLE'S LIVES HONESTLY TOLD.

  • >> YEAH, I KEEP DESCRIBING IT AS SORT OF LIKE A PHOTO ALBUM, AND

  • EVERY MOMENT THAT GRETA HAS CHOSEN TO, LIKE, SHOW AND SPEND

  • TIME WITH IS SO CONSIDERED AND WELL THOUGHT OUT, AND SHE'S

  • JUST-- SHE'S DONE SUCH A BRILLIANT JOB.

  • LIKE, THAT'S HER FIRST FILM.

  • IT'S HER FIRST FILM AND, YOU KNOW, IT'S AMAZING TO BE A PART

  • OF THE WHOLE -- >> Stephen: THAT ALMOST MAKES

  • ME ANGRY THAT IT'S HER FIRST FILM.

  • >> I GLN IT'S EXTRAORDINARY.

  • THE PACES SHE HAS.

  • YOU WOULD THINK A FIRST-TIME DIRECTOR WOULD BE A LITTLE

  • NERVOUS AND RUSH MOMENTS.

  • >> ALSO, I DON'T UNDERSTAND FOR FIRST-TIME DIRECTORS AS WELL,

  • FOR SOME OF THEM, THEY'RE FINDING THEIR FEET AND FIGURING

  • OUT WHAT KIND OF FILMMAKER THEY WANT TO BE.

  • AND I THINK BECAUSE GRETA WAS INVOLVED IN "FRANCIS HAHN," AND

  • THINGS LIKE, THAT SHE'S FOUND HER STYLE ALREADY EVEN BEFORE

  • SHE TOOK TO DIRECTING AND STUFF.

  • >> Stephen: AND, ALSO, THIS IS IN SOME WAYS HER STORY.

  • >> YEAH.

  • >> Stephen: YOU KNOW, THIS IS--

  • >> IN ESSENCE.

  • >> Stephen: IN ESSENCE HER STORY.

  • BUT NOT YOURS, OKAY.

  • YOU'RE NOT FROM SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA.

  • >> I'M NOT.

  • I'M ACTUALLY NOT.

  • IF YOU THOUGHT I WAS, YOU WERE WRONG.

  • ( LAUGHTER ).

  • >> Stephen: DOESN'T SOUND LIKE A NORTHERN CALIFORNIA ACCENT.

  • >> NO.

  • >> Stephen: I DON'T NECESSARILY WANT TO GO INTO THE

  • INTRICACIES OF YOUR ACCENT BECAUSE WE TALKED ABOUT IT LAST

  • TIME.

  • >> WE DID.

  • >> Stephen: BUT AN EXTRAORDINARYUE HAVE AN AMERICAN

  • NEUTRAL ACCENT, PERFECTLY, EVEN WHEN YOU SING IN THIS MOVIE--

  • BECAUSE YOU DO, YOU ODD DIG IN THIS MOVIE AND THAT'S WHEN THE

  • ACCENT CAN COME BACK.

  • HOW DID YOU-- HOW DID YOU GET YOUR HOOK?

  • ARE THERE AMERICAN PHRASES YOU WORKED ON THAT REALLY GET YOU TO

  • IT?

  • >> THERE'S-- IT IS-- IT IS SORT OF A GENERIC AMERICAN ACCENT IN

  • SOME WAYS, BUT, ACTUALLY, THE SACRAMENTO ACCENT, I NEVER

  • REALIZED BEFORE-- AND I DON'T KNOW IF YOU --

  • >> Stephen: I HAVE BEEN TO SACRAMENTO.

  • I AM AWARE OF HOW BORING IT.

  • >> SACRAMENTO IS A BEAUTIFUL PLACE.

  • >> Stephen: VERY BEAUTIFUL BUT THERE'S NOT A LOT TO DO.

  • >> BUT VERY PRETTY AND WE LIKE IT, AND GRETA LOVES IT, AND

  • THAT'S THE MAIN THING.

  • THERE ARE ACTUALLY CERTAIN SOUNDS SHE WOULD PICK UP ON,

  • LIKE THE WAY I WOULD WITH AN IRISH ACCENT, AND SHE WOULD

  • REALLY HONE IN ON THAT.

  • HE WOULD BE LIKE, "NO, NO, YOU HAVE TO SAY IT LIKE THIS."

  • AND IT BECAME QUITE SPECIFIC.

  • I FIND WITH CAPITOL HILLIAN ACCENTS IN GENERAL BECAUSE

  • THEY'RE IN THE SUN AND SUPER LAID BACK, THEY DON'T-- MY

  • ACCENT-- WE PROBABLY TALKED ABOUT IN THE LAST TIME-- MY

  • ACCENT IS SO SORT OF LIKE-- ERRR!

  • AND IT'S OUT THERE AND VERY MELODIC AND SORT OF LIKE, "LIKE

  • ME!" I FEEL LIKE WIT WITH THE CALIFOR

  • S.

  • >> Stephen: I NEVER HAD A GIRL COME UP AND SAY, "LIKE ME."

  • >> BUT THE IRISH ACCENT -- >> Stephen: THERE'S I BOUNCE

  • TO IT.

  • >> AND I THINK WITH A CALIFORNIAN ACCENT IT'S MORE

  • LAID BACK.

  • I FOUNT THAT DIFFICULT.

  • >> Stephen: YOUR SCENES WITH LAURIE METCALF, THEY'RE

  • ACTIVELY, AND IF SHE DOES NOT WIN BEST SUPPORTING ACTRESS, SHE

  • IS NOT ONLY FANTASTIC BUT SUPPORTING THE EMOTIONAL PLAYING

  • FIELD THAT YOU'RE ON.

  • >> YEAH.

  • >> Stephen: I MEAN TSTARTS OFF WITH THE TWO OF YOU-- LIKE,

  • SLEEPING IN THE SAME BED.

  • >> YEAH.

  • >> Stephen: AND THEN IMMEDIATELY IN CONFLICT.

  • >> YEAH, AND IT'S WHAT YOU WERE SAYING THAT MOMENT TO MOMENT,

  • EVERY-- EVERY PIECE IN THIS MOVIE AND EVERY SCENE OR EVERY

  • SHOT THAT WE SEE OR EVERY INTERACTION, IT IS JUST LIKE

  • INVITING US INTO THIS WORLD MORE AND MORE.

  • SO, LIKE, ONE OF THE VERY FIRST SCENES BETWEEN LAURIE AND ME

  • SELF WE'RE IN A CAR, AND WE'RE LISTENING TO "THE GRAPES OF

  • WRATH" AND WE'VE GOTTEN TO THE END OF IT AND WE'RE CRYING AND

  • THE NEXT MINUTE WE'RE ARGUING.

  • AND IT'S -- >> Stephen: AND THE NEXT

  • MINUTE YOU ARE THROWING YOURSELF OUT OF THE CAR WHILE IT'S

  • MOVING.

  • >> YEAH, YEAH.

  • >> Stephen: YES.

  • >> THEY DON'T GET IT YET BECAUSE THEY HAVEN'T SEEN IT BUT IT'S

  • ACTUALLY A REALLY GOOD SEEN SCOOEP.

  • YEAH, THERE ARE ALL THESE WONDERFUL INTRICACIES WITHIN THE

  • RELATIONSHIP.

  • >> Stephen: >> Stephen: I'M NOT THE ONLY

  • WHON LIKES IT.

  • IF DETHRONED "TOY STORY 2" AS THE BEST MOVIE EVER ON ROTTEN

  • TOMATOES.

  • IT'S 100% ON ROTTEN TOMATOES.

  • >> I DIDN'T KNOW WE BEAT "TOY STORY 2."

  • >> Stephen: THEY HAD IT COMING.

  • >> I FEEL A BIT GUILTY ABOUT IT.

  • >> Stephen: REALLY?

  • >> YEAH.

  • WE WERE TALKING ABOUT THAT BACKSTAGE HOW "TOY STORY" HAS

  • STOOD THE TEST OF TIME.

  • >> Stephen: YEAH, SURE.

  • >> SO HOPEFULLY "LADY BIRD" WILL AS WELL.

  • >> Stephen: YEAH, YEAH.

  • I THINK IT WILL.

  • BECAUSE, AGAIN, IT'S JUST ABOUT HOW PEOPLE RELATE TO EACH OTHER.

  • >> YEAH.

  • >> >> Stephen: NOW, THAT

  • COLLICISM IS A BIG PART OF THIS MOVIE DID WE TALK ABOUT IT THE

  • LAST TIME WE WERE HERE?

  • >> I DON'T THINK WE DID.

  • >> Stephen: WERE YOU RAISED CATHOLIC?

  • >> I WAS RAISED CATHOLIC, YES.

  • AND IT'S A MUCH MORE SORT OF CULTURAL THING IN IRELAND--

  • THERE ARE, OBVIOUSLY, VERY RELIGIOUS CATHOLICS AS WELL.

  • I WENT TO A CATHOLIC SCHOOL AND MADE CONFIRMATION AND FIRST

  • COMMUNION -- >> Stephen: THIS MOVIE YOU ATE

  • UNCONSERATED COMMUNION CRACKERS.

  • >> THERE IS NO WAY YOU WOULD GET AWAY WITH THAT IN IRELAND.

  • >> Stephen: IT'S BREAD.

  • >> IT'S AGAINST THE RULES.

  • >> Stephen: IT'S DEFINITELY AGAINST THE RULES.

  • >> GOD WILL BE LOOKING DOWN ON YOU JUDGING YOU, STEPHEN --

  • >> Stephen: THAT ACCENT PUT A CHILL DOWN MY BACK JUST NOW.

  • YOU'RE LIKE A CHARACTER IN A JAMES JOYCE NOVEL.

  • >> YEAH.

  • >> Stephen: NOW THE TITLE-- I DON'T THINK I'M GIVING ANYTHING

  • WAY HERE-- WHEN I SAY THE TITLE COMES FROM-- THE CHARACTER'S

  • NAME IS CHRISTINE.

  • >> CHRISTINE, YEAH.

  • >> Stephen: BUT SHE DOESN'T WANT TO BE CALLED CHRISTINE.

  • SHE WANTS TO BE CALLED LADY BIRD.

  • SAOIRSE, IF YOU'RE NOT FROM IRELAND, IT'S A BIT OF A

  • CONFUSING NAME.

  • >> IT IS, AND WE TALKED ABOUT THAT BEFORE.

  • >> Stephen: DID YOU EVER GO BY ANOTHER NAME?

  • DID YOU GIVE YOURSELF A NICKNAME AS WELL?

  • >> I NEVER GAVE ME SELF ANOTHER NAME.

  • WHEN I WAS YOUNGER NOBODY WAS CALLED SAOIRSE, I HAD NEVER MET

  • ANOTHER SAOIRSE, AND SO WHEN I WAS A KID, I DIDN'T WANT TO BE,

  • YOU KNOW, TOO DIFFERENT.

  • SO I THOUGHT, MAYBE I'LL ASK PEOPLE TO CALL ME SARAH OR

  • HANNAH OR SOMETHING, YOU KNOW, NICE AND SIMPLE LIKE THAT.

  • AND-- BUT THAT NEVER HAPPENED.

  • AND THEN LATER ON, I REMEMBER A FEW YEARS AGO, I WAS IN AN

  • AIRPORT, AND I WAS BEING PICKED UP BY SOMEONE, AND THEY HAVE

  • YOUR, YOU KNOW, THE NAME ON THE BOARDS AND STUFF.

  • AND I WAS SCANNING THROUGH, AND I WAS LIKE I CAN'T FIND MY NAME

  • ANYWHERE.

  • IT'S ALWAYS MISPELLED.

  • THEY NEVER GET IT RIGHT.

  • I WAS LOOKING FOR THIS MASSIVE TYPO.

  • AND I LOOKED THROUGH, AND THEN I, LIKE, SCANNED AGAIN, AND I

  • SAW A BOARD THAT JUST SAID, "SHELLY RONAN."

  • AND I WAS LIKE THAT'S ME.

  • SHELLY IT IS.

  • MAYBE I SHOULD BE SHELLY, I DON'T KNOW.

  • >> Stephen: WHY DO YOU THINK A MOVIE ABOUT A 17-YEAR-OLD,

  • PINK-HAIRED GIRL IN A CATHOLIC SCHOOL IN SACRAMENTO IS

  • RESONATING WITH SO MANY PEOPLE?

  • WHY DO YOU THINK THAT-- I MEAN, I'M NOT A 17-YEAR-OLD GIRL FROM

  • A CATHOLIC SCHOOL IN SACRAMENTO.

  • >> OH,.

  • >> Stephen: SOMETIMES I WISH I WAS.

  • ( LAUGHTER ) WHY DO YOU THINK THIS IS SO--

  • THIS MOVIE IS COMING OFF AS S SO... GRIPPING, EVEN THOUGH,

  • AGAIN, NO QUALITY KILLS.

  • >> BECAUSE I THINK THEY'RE NOT THE THINGS THAT DEFINE HER IN

  • THE SAME WAY THAT YOU CAN SORT OF CATEGORIZE ANY HUMAN.

  • AND YOU'RE WATCHING THIS PERSON FIGURE THEMSELVES OUT, AND I

  • MEAN, I DON'T EVEN THINK-- IT'S NOT-- IT'S NOT A TEENAGED

  • COMEDY.

  • I DON'T EVEN NECESSARILY WANT TO CALL IT "COMING OF AGE."

  • YOU'RE WATCHING A HUMAN BEING JUST, ALMOST, LIKE, TRY THESE

  • DIFFERENT CHARACTERS ON TO SEE WHICH ONE FITS.

  • AND THAT'S SOMETHING WE'VE ALL DONE AND CONTINUE TO DO.

  • AND IT'S BEEN AN INCREDIBLE-- A VERY SORT OF, LIKE,

  • LIFE-AFFIRMING EXPERIENCE TO, LIKE, KNOW THAT YOU CONNECT WITH

  • JUST AS MUCH AS A 15-YEAR-OLD GIRL WHOSE GONE TO, SAY-- OR A

  • GUY WHO WENT TO N.Y.U. 10 YEARS AGO AND HE CAME FROM A SMALL

  • TOWN, TOO.

  • BECAUSE IT'S HUMAN, YOU KNOW.

  • IT'S A GENDER LESSON AWAY.

  • AND I LOVE THAT ABOUT THE FILM SO.

  • >> Stephen: SO DO I.

  • THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING HERE.

  • ( CHEERS AND APPLAUSE ) "LADY BIRD" IS IN THEATERS NOW.

  • SHELLY RONAN, EVERYBODY.

>> Stephen: WELCOME BACK, EVERYBODY.
