“It’s nice getting older. A lot of people have been saying to me, ‘You are so much more confident and comfortable.’ There was a lot of energy being thrust at me then. I’m not someone who was solely desirous of becoming rich and famous. I can sit here and talk about my movies all day long. It’s what I’m most interested in — as selfish as that sounds. There was just something about the way everything was being ingested by people back then. There were aspects of it I wasn’t even aware of. Now I’ve learned to take it and have it be my own thing.”
I went through so much stress and periods of strife. I would have panic attacks… I literally always had a stomach ache. And I was a control freak and I couldn’t anticipate what was going to happen in a given situation, so I’d be like, ’Maybe I’m going to get sick’… It’s kind of remarkable. I just grew out of it, but that’s not to say I don’t get worried.
“Calling this film a bonding experience might be putting it lightly. Many of the actresses knew each other before shooting — but now they’re in a special, insane little club that only they understand. It’s particularly special for McKinnon and Jones, both current Saturday Night Live members, who had no idea they were going to be cast in the film.
“I think I was getting fitted for something at Saturday Night Live,“ McKinnon says. "My agent called. I was pretty surprised, in a very good way. I truly had no idea.”
The group finally got together for the first time as the official Ghostbusters team at the 40th anniversary of SNL in 2015. “I knew I loved them all as performers and I guess I didn’t know quite how much I would end up loving them as people,” McKinnon says.
“I don’t know if I can say this, but Kate has literally become my bitch,” Jones says later. “That is my bitch for life. Like, she is my heart and soul. Kristen is one of the sweetest, open people that I have ever, ever encountered, and Melissa is like a mother. She’s just, like, really very nurturing … I’ve taken a lot of love from this group.””
Kate on getting her part in Ghostbusters, and also Leslie talking about how much she loves them <3 Everyday I’m still like so happy that we got this awesome movie with these four amazing and funny actresses..
Ghostbusters alternative scene 4 “Erin’s ghost story” Ghostbusters 2016
A different version of Erin telling her ghost story, plus Holtzmann and Patty’s reactions to it. Also, Kevin. Plus Abby showing the photo of her and Erin and the others laughing about it.
Favorite part 1: Holtzmann: *Winks* Erin: *Laughs* Holtzmann: No, I’m kidding. That’s bad, that is bad. Erin: Well.. it was a long time ago..
Favorite part 2: Holtzmann: *in accent* Next time, I will lock up the machine, so it won’t explode. Patty: She’s over the equipment, that’s all I’m saying. Between him [Kevin] and her, how are we not gonna die?!
“The day that we wrapped we cried the entire day and our makeup artists were pretty upset with us because there was a lot of running mascara. Just to realize how close we’ve grown in that span of time…and I didn’t think that I could, as an adult, develop that kind of friendship with new people, and it just really took me by surprise and it was a beautful moment to look at each other and just bawl our eyes out ‘cause we were so sad to be leaving each other.” - Kate McKinnon
