!! OMG, quotes of the day: David Fincher talks tensions with Jake Gyllenhaal on the set of “Zodiac” !!

During the making of the 2007 film Zodiac, there was talk of Jake Gyllenhaal and director David Fincher having some tense times on set. Well Fincher has some out and confirmed it indeed had to do with Jake being distracted by his burgeoning career as a star. David talked openly about their disagreements in a new interview:

“Jake was in the unenviable position of being very young and having a lot of people vie for his attention, while working for someone who does not allow you to take a day off… I don’t think he’d ever been asked to concentrate on minutiae, and I think he was very distracted.”

“He had a lot of people whispering that ‘Jarhead’ was going to be this massive movie and put him in this other league, and every weekend he was being pulled to go to the Santa Barbara film festival and the Palm Springs film festival and the Catalina film festival. And when he’d show up for work, he was very scattered.”

“His managers and his silly agents who were all coming to his trailer at lunch to talk to him about the cover of GQ and this and that… it was hard for him to hit the fastball.”

“There are definitely times when I can be confrontational if I see someone slacking… I try to be compassionate about it. But. It’s. Four. Hundred. Thousand. Dollars. A day.”

“I tell actors all the time: I’m not going to cut around your hangover, I’m not going to cut around your dog dying, I’m not going to cut around the fact that you just fired your agent or your agent just fired you.”

!! OMG, The Karen Trope explained! !!

Notorious and nosy, the Karen is the self-victimized villain of our times. We can recognize a Karen by her “soccer-mom” look, her entitled meltdowns, or her signature demand to “speak to your manager.” All the attention on the Karen has felt sudden, as if this new entry into our cultural lexicon has come out of nowhere to match our current moment. But looking back over the years, we can find many fictional Karen predecessors in film & TV who can give us insight into her deeper drives and pathologies. So who is the Karen, really? Here’s our take on how the Karen came to exist in a world that detests her, and why — while we can pity her — her struggles still don’t excuse the pain she inflicts.
