Written by actress Rashida Jones (I Love You, Man) and her actor friend Will McCormack (Boiler Room), Celeste and Jesse Forever is an unusual out-of-love story about two people who try to maintain their best friendship despite being unofficially divorced. Although the two writers were never married in real life, the film (directed by Lee Toland Krieger) is inspired by their own relationship, with Andy Samberg playing Will’s “part” opposite Rashida Jones as Celeste. McCormack is in the film as a drug-dealing friend of Celeste’s named “Skillz.”
In an exclusive interview, I sat down with the amicable writing duo for a chat about their first film. Amongst many things, we talked about their first produced project, the key to good stoned acting, and we also had a very real conversation towards the end about Jones’ perspective on platonic relationships.
Celeste and Jesse Forever opens in Chicago theaters on August 10.

We start the Top 7. You finish the Top 10.
The release of Prometheus, and the film’s success, breathes new life into the 33-year-old Alien franchise. From the beginning, the hallmark of the Alien films has been their jaw dropping surprises. These are the Top 7 scenes that made these movies truly memorable for me. No Avp here people, just pure Alien flicks.
7. “Game over man!” from Aliens (1986)
Recap: Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) returns to Lv-426, the site of her traumatic alien encounter with a ship full of Marines, ready to blast the aliens to smithereens. But their bravado turns to terror after their first alien encounter, leading to Hudson’s (Bill Paxton) infamous “Game over, man!” line.
Reason: If you saw the first movie, you know how this thing will turn out. So there’s a slightly sweet feeling of “I told you so” when these overconfident Marines come face to face »
