Read a partial transcript of Gaby Hoffmann’s interview below.
Vanity Fair: You talked about script reading being an out of body experience and I’m curious what exactly does that mean?
Gaby Hoffmann: I had this long and lovely dinner with Mike where we talked about everything, a little bit about the movie, but just about life and parenting, art and filmmaking and each other and so on. I know I want to continue talking to him and collaborating with him on this. Then I read the script. And I think what I mean by looks is that it’s like emotional brushstrokes, like a dreamlike version of something that I thought about writing.
So I’m a parent — that’s what I do 99% of the time, every day, all year long. And it’s the most fun, rewarding, frustrating, and wonderful thing I can imagine doing. So it’s what I think about all the time, and I’ve tried to write a little bit about it. And then this beautiful script came to my heart, full of colors and notes, ideas and emotions and questions and themes. It’s almost weird, because I never actually get screenplays that talk about the things in life that I’m thinking about. It’s like a cousin who’s super good at something that you know, probably exists somewhere deep down in my heart.
