A CONVERSATION– – I WAS SO–I HAD LOST
THE OXYGEN IN MY LUNGS BECAUSE I HAD BEEN SCREAMING
YOUR NAME SO LOUDLY. AND THEN I WAS HURT

THE MIDDLE OF A SCENE, AND I CUT IT
AND I HAD TO GO TO THE HOSPITAL. – YEAH. AND DID YOU STAY IN CHARACTER

TWO MEANINGS THERE. AND THEN DID YOU– – GREAT STORY. – [laughs] DID YOU–

[laughter] IN THE SCENE,
YEAH, I DID, AND ACTUALLY I PRODUCED
THE MOVIE TOO. AND I THOUGHT FOR A MOMENT
THAT WE MIGHT BE ABLE TO GET AN INSURANCE DAY,
TOO, OUT OF IT, SO I STOPPED
AND I WAS BLEEDING AND I SAID, “COULD WE GET
AN INSURANCE DAY ALSO, MAYBE,” AFTER WE CUT. YOU KNOW, BUT WE DIDN’T. BUT, YEAH, I DID. I MEAN, I THINK
THAT THOSE THINGS ARE– IT’S GONNA BE
IN THE MOVIE. – IT WILL BE? SO WHEN WE SEE YOU BLEEDING
IN THE MOVIE, WE’LL KNOW THE STORY NOW. – MAYBE.

YOU JUST TOLD US THE STORY. – OH, YEAH,
THEN YOU WILL! – [laughs] – WHAT’S THE NAME OF THE MOVIE? – THAT WON’T HAVE ANYTHING
TO DO WITH THE MOVIE… – NO, I KNOW. – BUT HOPEFULLY
YOU’LL BE ENGAGED ENOUGH THAT YOU WON’T REALLY WORRY
ABOUT THE STORY. – THAT’S THE ONLY REASON I WANT
TO SEE THIS MOVIE NOW. WHAT’S THE NAME OF IT? – IT’S CALLED “NIGHTCRAWLER.” – OKAY, WHEN IT COMES OUT,
WE WILL KNOW THAT STORY. – THERE YOU GO.
– OKAY.
