Jonah, on his first time seeing himself on a billboard: “… I lived in an apartment near Canter’s Deli, in Los Angeles, and there was a Superbad billboard above my little-ass apartment. Every day, I would walk to Canter’s to get sandwiches, and no one knew who I was, but there was a billboard with me on it right there! It was nuts. I kind of got this vibe like, whoa — shit’s about to be really… different.”

Jamie, on his reaction to Belfast‘s script: “In Belfast, I play a dad, and there was a moment when I read the script where I thought, I’m a young guy—I’m not ready to play a father! Mind you, in real life I do have a wife and three daughters, but my kids in Belfast are a bit older than my actual children. Then I realized that I was playing a version of [writer-director] Sir Kenneth Branagh’s dad, and I felt better. I also grew up in Belfast, and I wanted to make the city proud.”

Jodie, on her costumes in The Last Duel: “… I don’t know if that was just a bit of cheating, to help a girl out, if you know what I mean. Ridley Scott, the director, really liked these wooden clogs that were two sizes too big, because of the way they sounded on the cobblestones. So I was shuffling around, trying to keep my shoes on.”

Kodi, on the last time he was starstruck: “It’s a rare occasion, but I recently ran into Tyler, the Creator, and he’s someone whom I really admire. When I first came to L.A. and I was skateboarding in Fairfax, he was my hero. He’s amazing in so many ways.”
