I’ve made a bit of a comeback in the last 12 years—but it’s not because of the movie. It’s because of my work.
Have you been approached to do a movie lately with Jennifer Lawrence?
I don’t speak with Jennifer Lawrence personally. It’s a different era, I guess. When she said “I want to do a movie with you,” I laughed. It was such a shock, but then a couple of weeks later, I was told by my producer that everyone here at Paramount is going to be really excited to have me.
What film are you working on now?

My first year, the teacher said something like, “When you’re old enough to go on ‘Shakespeare in Love,’ you’ll be going through puberty.” I was a teen-ager and I think that’s what I’ve always found funny.
What’s your favorite movie?
Maybe something that is not a comedy.
Why is a playwright not always popular these days?
