We weren't supposed to take pictures during the taping of that last night but I managed to sneak that sucker surreptitiously in a between-takes moment, right before they started taking questions from the audience. Anyway yes the rumors are true I got to see my long time love Greta Gerwig talk to my longer time love Laura Dern about the latter's career for over two full hours last night -- if there is a heaven for me that is what it will look like (well Jake will be there too, but he won't be on the stage).
I'm not sure when this episode will air just yet but you can check out Ovation's website here for that. There's a good chance you'll catch me looking a fright in the audience! (I don't know why it didn't occur to me that I might end up on camera but it was so hot yesterday I did not dress appropriately for such an event, oh well.)
Anyway I don't have much scoop to share from the taping since you'll be able to see it all in just a couple of weeks and it wasn't that kind of talk -- I can tell you that the both of them met my expectations and then some; Gerwig was her usual charmingly yammering self and Dern was basically light personified (hence why she came out so bright in the photo -- she just glows, as a human being and as a special effect). The only scoop was this below and this should be obvious to anybody who's been looking forward to Little Women:
PS they showed a thirty second clip of Laura Dern and Saoirse Ronan acting in Gerwig’s LITTLE WOMEN and I was crying before it had finished— Jason Adams (@JAMNPP) October 3, 2019
