In ‘You’re The Worst,’ Even The Most Flawed Characters Deserve Love

Today You’re The Worst creator Stephen Falk and co-star Aya Cash sit down with Fresh Air producer Ann Marie Baldonado to talk about their series. In the show, characters Gretchen and Jimmy present their true narcissistic selves from the get-go, which led Ann Marie to ask how Cash’s personal experience relates.

Aya Cash: I think we all perform different sides of ourselves in different situations and with different people, and I think when you’re interested in someone romantically there’s a tendency to try to show the good parts first — bait and switch is a term that’s used often.

Personally, I’m a very patient person. I tend to date people who show me a lot up front that would make people run away. I had a boyfriend get arrested a couple dates in. I had a boyfriend pee in my roommate’s closet a couple dates in — actually, that’s the same guy. He ended up being a wonderful, wonderful human, and we dated for two years, but it all happened within the first month.
