Anybody catch the Sophia worship in the Times this weekend? I thought I was reading the post...Am I crazy or does anyone else notice this shift in the Times?

This seemed pretty standard for a Lynn Hirschberg piece. And Sofia is cool.

Actually, some of that NYT piece was in my posted interview, to help round out some topics I wanted to cover. Same with the official Q&A on the movie website.

Maybe the dynamic's different when you're ingratiating yourself to a celeb 1-on-1 like Hirschberg does. but in a group setting, sucking up becomes a tool in the competition for her attention. (At least, that was the case for 2 of my 3 interviewing colleagues.)

I definitely felt dirty afterwards.

Glad to hear that you did in fact feel dirty. Kudos - you still have that capacity, I'm not sure Hirschberg does. Keep up the good work.
