Great Sophia Coppola interview by Greg Allen.
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.
if i were interviewing sophia coppola, i would be sucking up as well. lost in translation is my favorite movie to come out since wong kar-wai’s fallen angels.
