Are andy samberg and rashida jones dating
BROWN: When did you get together and decide you wanted to write a movie? JONES: We talked about it and didn’t do it for a long time.
I think I had this weird intimidation; I had a lot of [college] friends, who, [when they] got out of school were writers—that’s what they were, everybody treated them as such.
BROWN: Do you think that in 10 or 12 years, Jesse and Celeste will be together? BROWN: No Prince Charles and Camilla post-Diana reunion? I think there’s got to be a break in the time to process, and then guys need even longer to process because they take so long to even acknowledge anything’s happened. I’m friends with a lot of my exes, but it took time. I don’t think you can be friends until you’re cool with them dating someone else. BROWN: Jesse and Celeste have a sort of cute and strange joke where they pretend to make pointy objects ejaculate. BROWN: What was your first job out of college, did you go straight into acting? Because I’ve been a fashion intern and…JONES: It was hardcore. I worked at Barney’s for a summer in PR and that was super-hardcore. Mary Alice is so nice that it was great, I got really lucky, but people can be slightly bitchy, for sure.
JONES: I went straight into auditioning, but that’s not really a job, you’re just trying to get a job all the time. Alek Wek was the model, and she was super nice on that very first job, but it’s demanding. BROWN: Do you feel like going to an Ivy League school has helped or hindered your film career? I think there is this thing where people are impressed—it gives you a leg up in the sense that people won’t treat you like a run-of-the-mill actress.
As time went on and the movie kept coming together, falling back apart, coming back together—weirdly, the more our of the studio system you get, the bigger name [actor] you have to have.
We still hang with her and I miss her; she has three kids and she was on a TV show in New Mexico for five years, so… BROWN: And you never thought about having Will play Jesse?
Will and I just decided one summer, “Let’s write this idea and if it’s bad, nobody ever has to know, and if it’s a little better than bad, we can send it to friends, get input, and make it better.”BROWN: Who was the first person you sent it to? [During ,] all I did was focus on the movie; I was in that headspace the whole time.
JONES: I think the first two people we sent it to were my friend Jesse Ehrman, who’s kind of the namesake of the movie, who I went to prom with, who works at Warner Brothers, is crazy smart, and reads lots of scripts; and our friend Nicky Winestock, who at the time was working with Judd Apatow, and now he’s his own production company. We go to the farmer’s market when we’re working and get food for lunch, and we get the biggest, like, seasonal Japanese cucumber—we go for big objects—and we just look stupid. [It was] such a short amount of time—so concentrated—that I could stay there and feel safe and good. I mean, already it was a lot to be in it and write it and produce it.
Thank God, because I didn’t want to go to college with that.
It’s not a judgment on him at all – I think he’s incredibly cute and very funny, in a goofy-hot-boy-that-I-would-loved-in-college way. I think they’re all secretly relieved that it’s shorter now.
