Q&A

Thanks for the report. How enthusiastic were Matt and John? They've been doing at least one Q&A per night for probably two weeks now. I would expect they are exhausted and very tired of telling the same stories.

Re: Q&A

Well Matt did Leno, than he must've met up with John and Gus at Grauman's Chinese Theater for the VARIETY screening, then the entourage (minus Gus) came to ArcLight Hollywood for the PGA screening. They arrived in a large black SUV with John in back and Matt sitting shotgun next to the driver. They arrived with Jennifer and like 6 FOCUS Features peeps and 4 security (excessive). They seemed a bit tired, but still friendly. Matt was rather quiet, but lit up when he was offered a bucket of popcorn. The Q&A was super redundant and John was on autopilot with answers while Matt remained quiet. Matt responded energetically to two questions asked, 1- How he'd vote if he were in the gymnasium on the other side of his character (he didn't really answer and just said the film was meant as an opportunity for discussion among people, just as the characters in the film have to make decisions for themselves) 2- Then the question regarding why it's rated R came up, and he said cause of language just like Good Will Hunting was rated R for language, then he lit into a HILARIOUS imitation of Harvey Weinstein and how Harvey told him and Ben that if Good Will were PG13 it'd attract more audience and Matt said he said OK Harvey so what do we have to do? Harvey said you're only allowed 2 uses of word *uck. Matt asked well how many do we have to remove from the script? Harvey replied 145!! (everyone laughed). He also also mentioned that when he dropped out of being director so did funding from Warner Bros (so he fired himself, and lost financing). I wondered just how tired they both are too since it's been non-stop. Matt seemed very youthful in spirit, like a college kid, and he's quite soft-spoken too.

Re: Q&A

Thanks very much for the report. So many people have attended the Q&A sessions but there has been only one half-decent write-up that I've seen before your great comments.

Even the person who gave them popcorn wrote about it on Twitter.
