Illeana Douglas: We did the bar scene, and I decided I wanted to do this thing with the laugh—just being stupid and not really knowing what was going on.
Barry Adamson: But who you are pulls it back into a context.
Douglas: Oh yeah, of course. At the time, I just didn’t know.
Adamson: You covered all the bases.
Douglas: Everything sort of changed.
Adamson: How’s it going?
Douglas: It was insane. People were so nice to me.
Adamson: You walk around staring up while they're picking your pockets. You watch.
Douglas: But once you’re successful, what do you do?
Adamson: Well, I guess, psychological terrors are right up there. Various things will filter in.
Douglas: They made this big thing about how we were going to stop the scene and put in safety glass, clear the set and all, because it’s very dangerous.
Adamson: I'm seventeen years old, and I'm thinking, what the hell is going on here.
Douglas: When you’re starting out, you don’t really care.
Adamson: I did want my own puppet. The beauty of it is that you can bring your frame of reference and enjoy in it that way, and say like, I see what's going on.
Douglas: This is a famous story. It seems like I made it up.
