Personal Quote:

We were just in the recording studio for Into the Woods (2014) and The Rescuers Down Under (1990) came on, and Emily Blunt and I and a bunch of PAs sat around watching it. It's one of those movies I have a fever-dream memory of, like you watched it when you were so little that you're not sure whether you imagined the entire movie. It was amazing to watch those two little mice get on that seagull. See more »
