"WE NEVER SEEM TO MIND THIS WHEN IT’S THE BLISTERINGLY-TALENTED FILMMAKERS LIKE DUNCAN JONES AND JASON REITMAN, BUT SOFIA COPPOLA? YUP. THAT’S NEPOTISM AT WORK!"
"My fear of feminine weakness is not satisfied by gnawing away at my own mind; it chomps down the rest of the world. I meet a great girl who is smart and confident, and then I catch a glimpse of her legs: they are grossly skinny; she is weak; she is a liar. I find out that a friend I desperately admire has suffered from an eating disorder, or has been wiped out by a boy—instead of acting like a friend, I feel disgusted and betrayed; I run away. If a girl’s legs are just right and she seems like just the kind of girl I would want to hang around, then I assume that she would not understand me and would hate me, so I keep my distance. I am distrustful of most men for the regular reasons, but mostly I am jealous because they can cook and be weak and vain without it all burning a hole in their head."
