I wanna be your girl or boyfriend

From this interview with director Paul Thomas Anderson comes an interesting tidbit about his special bond with Daniel Day Lewis:

“We’re still trying to figure out who the girlfriend is and who the boyfriend is in this relationship. When we first met I called him a few days later and I left a message saying: ‘It’s your girlfriend.’ It feels like that. You are in a relationship with someone so intimate, every single day. I dare say there were moments when our spouses were jealous.”

Let’s hope they’ve figured out by now who’s playing what in this charming little roleplay. That way they can get down to the real business of texting each other messages like “If i were a tear in ur eye i wood roll down onto ur lips. But if u were a tear in my eye i wood never cry as i wood be afraid 2 lose u!

So happy together

    “If u were a tear in my eye I would cry all over your suit in the hopes that it would be ruined and u would never wear it again.”

    You must admit that the stripes on that plaid are remarkably well-matched.

    It’s painful, the thought that some Hong Kong tailor gave his life that this plaid might live.

    Well I guess it’s important to establish at the outset who wears the plaid in the relationship.

    Irish and Scottish are both immune to plaid critiques. In truth, I am somewhat relieved to see a man whose not-mainstream clothing looks clean.

    I’m thinking that DDL is looking quite handsome in his plaid suit. He wears it well.

    OK, it’s official, Spirit Fingers wins.

    I didn’t even recognize him. I much prefer him dressed as a hairy psychopath.
