Movie trivia: Sofia Coppola wrote a lot of the film based on her life. The character of John (Giovanni Ribisi) was loosely based on her then husband Spike Jonze. Rumor has it that the Anna Faris’ character, Kelly, was supposedly Cameron Diaz, with whom Spike Jonze worked with on Being John Malkovich, though Coppola denied the connection in an Entertainment Weekly interview.

I’ve had those moments where I was like the guy holding the purse at events and people just looked right through me. And, you know, actors come up and just blatantly hit on my wife in front of me and don’t even look at me. I’m like ‘What the fuck, dude?’ I can think of exactly who they are, too, and I hope they fucking audition for Guardians of the Galaxy.

That is where corn chips come from. Hmm… Maybe ol’ Professor Hardwood is onto something. He probably really loves corn. And all corn-related products. I mean, isn’t that what you’re supposed to put in a frame? Things you love? I’m gonna do that. When I’m get home, I’m gonna frame a bunch of stuff I love. Like lasagna. I *love* lasagna. It’s SO good. And cheesy. You know who else loves lasagna? Garfield. Man, that cat really loves lasagna. Maybe I should put a picture of Garfield in a frame. You know, as a kind of shorthand way of saying ‘I love lasagna.’ That would be so f*cking inside. Or how ‘bout a photo of *President* Garfield? Oh shit, that would be totally meta! People would be all like: Jane, why do you have a photo of President Garfield on your mantle? And I’d be like: Because I like lasagna, of course. ”   

On the time before he was a household name: “I’ve had those moments where I was like the guy holding the purse at events and people just looked right through me. And, you know, actors come up and just blatantly hit on my wife in front of me and don’t even look at me. I’m like ‘What the f–k, dude?’ I can think of exactly who they are, too, and I hope they f–king audition for Guardians of the Galaxy.”

On his former heavy set days: “I think outwardly I was having more fun. I was more fun to be around, probably. That image that I was casting, to convince people that I was okay, was a really fun person to hang around. Now I have less fun. I focus more. She [Pratt’s wife] doesn’t get to cook for me the way she used to. I was like a great pet fat guy.

On what’s next for his family: “…whether we have kids or potentially have a surrogate or adopt kids. He [son Jack] was premature, and Anna’s 38, so the idea of going through that again—that was tough, and I think like, that’s something to truly consider.”
