okay im gonna give you my top 3 bc i cant really choose just one. and obvi all his interviews are my fave but….
(i will never ever be over how flirty and cocky and cute 18 yr old niall was here. plus him and harry played off each other SO well. i love it.)
THIS INTERViEW. niall and eoghan. chat in nialls hotel room. (also for that one anon who claimed niall has never had an interview with one of his best friends….here is 23 mins of super close mates being dumb and getting quite nostalgic)
this one. bc he was just SO charming, and funny and cute and meshed so well with everyone on the panel and it was just a really good interview.
(okay i lied here is one more) and last but not least, this one. bc he was just….totally niall here. in his own house. on his couch. sippin his smoothie. being fidgety and humble and honest and cute. ugh. another lovely 23 mins of niall. amazing.
also there are loads others but these are the ones that really stuck out in my head.
I always see the best in people. I hope for the best, and I always look for that little bit of good, that potential, and I wait for it to blossom. You want them to feel good being a man, but now men are afraid to be men. They think being a real man is actually being a pussy, that if you take a chair out for a lady, or you’re nice or even affectionate to your girl in front of your boys, you’re less of a man. It’s so sick. They won’t be a gentleman because that makes them appear soft. That’s what we’re dealing with now, a hundred percent, and girls are settling for that, but I won’t. I will wait forever if I have to … but that’s ok. You have to be screwed over enough times to know, but now I’m hoping for more than these guys can actually give.
That’s why I haven’t been having sex or even really seeing anybody, because I don’t want to wake up the next day feeling guilty. I mean I get horny, I’m human, I’m a woman, I want to have sex. But what am I going to do—just find the first random cute dude that I think is going to be a great ride for the night and then tomorrow I wake up feeling empty and hollow? He has a great story and I’m like… what am I doing? I can’t do it to myself. I cannot. It has a little bit to do with fame and a lot to do with the woman that I am. And that saves me.
In 2014 Lorde recalled that, while writing the album, she strove ‘to make sense of every weird thing that happens at a party with 15-year-olds’ and, to this end, forswore alcohol, not out of “discipline as much as just wanting not to miss anything.’
On the new album, that tendency toward cool detachment collapses again and again into a rush of outsize emotions. When I reminded her of the teetotaling behind 'Pure Heroine,’ she laughed. With 'Melodrama,’ she said, 'I went to the party and got drunk.’
if you listen to ben and anothony mackie’s conversation in the background, you can hear ben say “seriously, they asked me to chaperone this” which is the most adorable thing ever because omg they really did make daddybatch look after tom
and in that time when ben and mackie are whispering about important stuff, tom is obliviously unaware and only focusing on his empty bottle
zelinxiaone of my fave interview tidbits is Kubo describing the sound director working with Suwabe when he was acting the “Yuuri~” line at end of ep 1. They picked the goofy sounding one (sure does to me!). Like…this guy is a strong actor but gets nervous too
Yes I loved that too!! They went out of the way to pick the goofiest sounding one. Truly a hint of the sweet, excitable Victor that we would soon meet.
Also the shot of him RIGHT when Yuuri comes in, before he stands up and reacts. He’s sitting in the onsen and he looks downright pensive and maybe even a little scared?
It’s a lot more conspicuous even, when it’s in motion (I think he quite looks nervous in gif form). I didn’t really think of it much at first, but after we got the full picture…
As much as we joke about dicks out for katsudon and all, having to (re)introduce himself naked in the onsen to Yuuri and offer to be his coach there wasn’t exactly what Victor had in mind, so the facade went right up with his introduction (that wink? so performative), but it did still slip a little because Yuuri’d already been able to do that to him.
