Andy and Maggie work on a Holocaust film that stars Kate Winslet.
Oh yeah, that can be a bit awkward. Why don’t you just start with something light, you know, like um – “I’d love it if you stuck your Willy Wonka between my Oompa-Loompas,” you know, something a bit fun, a bit jokey. And then you can get more hardcore, run with the old classics, like “I’m playing with my dirty pillows,” “I’m aching for your big purple-headed womb ferret.” And then go straight in hard, like “Get ’round here ’cause I’m fudding myself stupid and I’m bloody loving it.” Right?
How many more movies do we need about the Holocaust? I mean, we get it, it was grim.
My husband’s gonna be rummaging around in my basement while I polish his Oscar.
My God, I’m not doing it for that. And I don’t think we really need another film about the Holocaust, do we? It’s like, how many have there been? You know, we get it – it was grim, move on. No, I’m doing it because I’ve noticed that if you do a film about the Holocaust – guaranteed Oscar!
