Woody Norman, unequivocally the cutest – and probably most talented – kid who showed up this award season has talked about his time working with Joaquin Phoenix on Mike Mills‘ come on come on. That and, yes, why all of us old people should have a little more faith in the future. GQ asked the affectionate (and surprisingly British) actor about his thoughts on all the people – including, puha, us – who cried a lot at his film.
Phoenix, in Norman’s words:
“He’s lovely. It was so much fun working with him. And he’s very generous with his scenes because he’s never going to take the spotlight from someone he’s working with, supporting actors or background characters or anything. Everyone is equally important in his eyes. .”
A match made in heaven, we would think – and not surprisingly, they would be scolded together under the supervision of Mills, a filmmaker next door and professional, hypersensitive empathy at first. A key element of the film consists of Phoenix’s character, Johnny, who asks a bunch of kids about their hopes and dreams for the future. Appropriately, the interviewer asked for Normans, whose response is both phenomenally mature and almost as endearing as his performance:
“Mine would probably be the same as Jesse’s, just denied the question at first. But then I will say it all, yes, in my real opinion I think the world will not end soon. I think we will fix everything, all the bad is going on. I think it’s okay. So I believe a lot in the people who will hopefully stop it. But I think we as humans just have to stop worrying too much about it because it will “make it worse. We need to stop worrying and actually do something. If we just do something, it will be fixed in a few decades.”
Wise, refreshingly hopeful words, kid. You’re going a long way. (Sounds like Mills’ own hyperpositive philosophy also infected him a bit.) And what about the tears?
“We went to the London Film Festival to see it. And it was great just to see it with a bunch of people I did not know and see what their reaction is. […] I’ve never cried over anything I’ve been in, but I cried all the time. I was just crying. I cried all the time. “
Our invoice for the many boxes of paper napkins we quickly went through is coming, Woody.
come on come on is currently in cinemas and also stars Gaby Hoffmann, Scoot McNairy, and Jaboukie Young-White.
From ‘Parenting’ to ‘The Sisters Brothers’, this unique list includes seven of Joaquin Phoenix’s most underrated roles.
