The script was such a shocking and moving story, especially in light of what’s going on today. The heart of the film explored gay conversion therapy which is especially disturbing during a time when we have an American vice-president who has spoken on the record about leading gay conversion therapy — so it seems like an appropriate time to look at how mad and terrifying those places are. When reading something, I know pretty quickly if I like something or not. By and large, the things I’ve wanted to be involved in I’ve fought for.

“I don’t feel any different as a person really — it hasn’t changed who I am. Every job is still a surreal experience and a learning curve. When you’re auditioning for the things you really want, it’s rare to find something that really suits you or that you really love. I give it everything I can when I’m auditioning for those roles.” — Joe Alwyn for L’Uomo Vogue, November 2018

PSA: Taylor Swift’s 30th birthday is on a Friday the 13th.

I just thought that was important news that I should share.

GUYS I just realized something. In rep room photos, the background is iconic, not just because it’s the newspaper that says “Taylor Swift” but because it’s black and white. That means that literally, the rest and of the world is black and white… but you and Taylor are in screaming color.

… told her how much new year’s day means to me and we talked about that for a while and I was like i’m so happy you’re finally happy. you’ve been through so much and now you have someone to share your life with and she was like yeah he’s the best (she said it like baaaast and her voice got all silly)!! he’s just such an amazing person and he calms me down whenever I see something mean someone says about me he just takes me right out of it all. and then she was like and he’s been my longest relationship!!! we’ve been together for 20 months now. when we get to two years, i’m going to freak out. i’m going to be so obnoxious about it. and then we talked about that for a while and I honestly don’t remember what we said because i started to black out and then we took our picture and then I was like WHATS THE STORY OF THE CHAIR because finally my brain started working and she was like huh?? and then she was like omg people in england just have bonfires like all the time and we just hang out in his backyard burning stuff and I was like did you know you were going to become a meme from that picture and she was like no but I love it. and then she was like all of those pictures in the magazines are taken by joe, he just takes pictures of me all the time. and she was being so cute about it. and then I was like omg you’re wearing the necklace (because i’m a basic bitch) and she was like isn’t it great?
