You are overruled. Which is my privilege as producer from time to time, is it not?
I remember seeing Clueless when I was like fourteen, and I just thought that Alicia Silverstone—all of the actors, but particularly her—were really funny in that film. I just thought, “You know it’s a performance, because it’s slightly heightened.” I could understand that she was acting. She gave me so much pleasure because I saw that film like a hundred times. I could sit down and watch that film tonight and think, “Thank you, Alicia Silverstone,” because that has made me laugh for hours and hours of my life. I definitely saw that and thought, “I’d like to do that.”
I thought I might lead with the death of Dior.
