We did this shoot at 7am on a Sunday morning at Judd and Leslie’s house. Anderson Cooper and his crew were setting up in the kitchen for something that was happening immediately after our shoot. Lots of stuff going on! I have the utmost respect for these two. I have been a fan of Judd’s work for so long – starting with Freaks and Geeks and just about everything since then. He has such a great ability to write, direct, and/or produce such believable characters. They’re believable because they’re flawed, but always likable. You feel like you know them. You feel like they are your friends, or you want to be friends with them, or you’re related to them, or you are them. I had the pleasure of attending a screening of his new film, This is 40, yesterday, and Leslie gives an amazing performance. She’s always super funny, but this role definitely takes her character into other territories as well, and she is so good. I’ll post a couple outtakes some time in the near future.
