I’m triple happy to present this post to you today.
1/ First of all, because I got the chance to meet Nancy Meyers and Anne Hathaway.
2/ And because I love the film we’re going to talk about today, The Intern.
3/ And because we finally have a video for you! We’ve been talking about doing another one for like 20,000 years!
Let me tell you a little bit about how I met Nancy… About a year ago, I got an email telling me Nancy wanted to meet me. I have to tell you, I’m a huge fan of her films and her talent. So I obviously shouted “Yes!”, and went to meet her at her New York office. Nancy lives in LA but she was in New York shooting a film with Anne Hathaway and Robert de Niro.
But not just any film. A film about fashion! A film about the Internet! A film about an entrepreneur who starts out in her kitchen and has a hard time handling her success…
Obviously, I was immediately excited about the project. At the time, Nancy wanted to tell me about the film, and possibly put some images from my videos in it (which felt totally surreal, right. Life is bigger than fiction! It didn’t actually end up happening, but even the fact that she thought about it…!) She told me my world was a part of what inspired the idea for the film; I don’t think I’ll ever get over hearing that. She was also working with Moda Operandi and Lauren Santo Domingo…
After that, I even got the chance to visit the set. Seeing Nancy work was such an incredible opportunity. At one point in my life, I dreamed of making a film, but quickly abandoned the idea. It seems like such an insurmountable task. But watching her work with so much grace and humor profoundly inspired me. I also met Robert de Niro, which was honestly like fulfilling a childhood dream.
And a few weeks ago… I finally got to go see the film!
I brought Chris along and he thought I was taking him to see another dumb rom-com, and as it turns out… we both loved the film. It goes far beyond being a comedy, even though it’s hilarious. It offers a subtle, interesting, and modern commentary on women’s roles in society, and also on our obsession with youth that makes us lose perspective.
But I don’t want to give away too much. I’ll leave you to enjoy the video.
P.S. I’m sure I don’t even have to tell you, I also loved meeting Anne Hathaway who is incredibly sweet and funny (just look at her Instagram and you’ll see what I mean right away).
This video was produced in partnership with Warner Bros.
