Did You Know?

Trivia Colombian actress Catalina Sandino Moreno said in an interview with Reuters that she struggled with her decision to be naked for the first time for the sex scenes because she didn't have a "Hollywood body." "I'm not that skinny. I will never be that skinny. So it was kind of weird. I'm not perfect, I have this," she said, grabbing her thighs. "Then I realized every time you watch a movie where a girl gets naked, it's perfect, she's a model and it's not true. It's not real. It was kind of like a big thing for me to just go for it, to take my clothes off and be me. It was something that I really thought about, to do or not to do. Then I just said ... I'll do it. I'm normal, it's not a big deal." See more »

Quotes Jesse: [to William in the restaurant] A lot of bad shit is gonna happen to you. People are not gonna love you back, and if you're serious about becoming an artist, that's the first thing you should learn. And, listen, you're gonna die, okay? Relatively soon, okay? So, that being said, you have nothing to worry about.
