"Now I feel like a grown-up"
Mr. S: Totally, who would pass that up?
Benz: He's so brilliant. He wrote and directed it, as well as starring in it, and you really get an understanding of why he is as big as he is. His level of commitment to his work is astounding. I've never seen anybody so committed. He lives and breathes every element of the movie. Every aspect of it. And he demands that level of commitment from everyone that works with him. He inspires it out of you, because you see him deliver 150%, and you want to deliver 150%. It was the toughest job I've ever had, both physically and emotionally, but also the most inspiring job. Literally, I'd get back to the hotel, and I'd feel so beaten up and so emotionally drained that I would be like, "Wow, what a day! This is work." I would be so excited to wake up the next day and do it over again. Not every job demands that intensity. We were working in Thailand, and I didn't get to see any of it!
Mr. S: Well, that still sounds like a great experience, and congratulations again on all of your success.
Benz: Thank you!
Mr. S: There are a couple other things... We're about to wrap this up, uh, first of all, I have to tell you that my friend Allen loves you. I promised him I'd tell you that.
Benz: Well, you tell Allen I love him, too.
Mr. S: Okay...well, I'm going to hold back on that because you never really know...with Allen...totally kidding, he's a good guy.
Benz: All right, well, tell him that I like him a lot.
Mr. S: Okay, deal. [laughter]
Mr. S: And also, you know you don't have to commit to anything right now, but I'm in a band, and the guyz wanted to know if you'd be in one of our videos. I'm just floating that out there, obviously I'm sort of partially kidding, but, uh...yeah. You don't have to answer right now, I totally understand if you need time to think about it.
Benz: ...Yeah...sounds cool!
Mr. S: Anyway, Julie, thank you so much for talking to me, it's been really great. Again, congratulations on your continued success. You're really doing a great job, and, you know, just keep it up!
Benz: Thank you!
