Quote of the Day

I don't know if y'all saw the pictures (I posted one on Twitter but weirdly never posted one here, so there one is above) of Timothée hanging out with Ansel Elgort at a basketball game recently but it turns out they went to LaGuardia Performing Arts High School together (Ansel was one year above Timmy) and had some teachers in common - well Vanity Fair went and talked to their shared Drama teacher, a man named Harry Shifman (side-note: Hey Journalists why haven't you found his "Statistics" teacher Ms. Lawton???) and he tells some great stories about the two of them so the whole thing's worth reading but I liked what he had to say about seeing Call Me By Your Name the most so here's that:

"I thought, my god, that’s pure Timmy. He brought himself to that role, and revealed all the many sides of himself. It was very courageous that he could do that. I was gloriously delighted. I was moved. I was just sobbing in that last shot... You could see how active his mind is. He really goes to those places, even when he doesn’t express exactly where he is, because he has a marvelous ability to play opposite to what he’s experiencing. So you see this inner dynamic pull between what he’s feeling and what he’s willing to reveal that he’s feeling, which, of course, just provokes that emotion in the audience. That’s very sophisticated."

I'm not an Ansel Elgort fan, but I DO like this pic showing his highway to heaven. Very nice. Thanks for that
