Booksmart Interview: Kaitlyn Dever & Beanie Feldstein talk 'Bridesmaids', Jonah Hill & stereotypes



female movies don't have to be like female versions of a boy movie they can just be their own incredible movie are we gonna go to school first of all was this movie as fun to make and it is to watch olivia created like the best environment everyone that came in you know to do the movie had really something to prove and also just was so game to do anything and they were so down and open and and relaxed and fun and easy it was just a very collaborative experience you go oh there's there's a true camaraderie between the cast that was that you can never like we we say we couldn't fake our chemistry in the film you can't fake liking people like you either get along with people or you don't get along with them and it was just a roomful of people the cast and the crew that just genuinely loved what we were making you have to go to a party tonight what nobody knows that we are fun they didn't party because we wanted to focus on school and get into good colleges and it worked irresponsible people who partied also got into those colleges I'm incredible at hand jobs but I also got a 1560 on the SAT the funding called the best teen party movie since super bad beanie is there any sort of competition going on there between you and your brother literally not at all we're obsessed with each other we are like each other's biggest cheerleaders it's like sort of America it's like the way that our two characters complement each other in the film is like me and my brother but we're just like alone at lunch like we're obsessed with each other um he is so excited and we're so proud that it would be compared to super bad but also at the same time I hope that we get to a point I heard Olivia say this other day where female movies don't have to be like female versions of a boy movie they can just be their own incredible movie oh my god such an honor to be compared to yeah and that movies about friendship and the celebration of a friendship between two boys and it's treated with such love and I think that's a very similar thing to book-smart hand-sanitizer fat trap stick Mase listen it is very important that you keep the safety film really plays around with high school the classic high school's theatre yeah what do you feel like that adds to the teen comedy genre these stereotypical kind of moments that you might project oh I know that girl that's the hot girl or I know that guy that's the rich kid and then so quickly cracks open that ideology and shows you how complex and fold it like fully dimensional each human being in this film is and I think it's so brilliant because it's using those tropes in order to subvert them and I think that's such a fresh perspective that we haven't seen in the in the teen comedy it's the last day we got you through high school I need to go fan of your budget numbers man we just graduate head off to college that should do it right I can't hear you I can't soundproof glass the reason why I fell in love with it was it was because it it was a comedy for young women with two female leads but it's not a common on a comedy for only women this is a comedy that I think everyone can relate to well it seems excessive shotgun just kidding I don't have one now that book-smart is made I hope that it will just really change the game in a new way because I think people have been craving a movie like this because we haven't seen it or its really relatable in a lot of ways I remember seeing bridesmaids if the first time and I was the exact age that Molly me any me are in the film and I was so moved and in awe of like seeing that many funny women on screen and the film was so celebrated and they got Oscar nominations and it was such a huge deal for me as a young woman who wanted to do comedy and so to be a part of continuing that and following in their footsteps and like continuing that path is really meaningful to us and I hope that young women or young girls who see this film see in the film how funny they're you the funding women that they see in real life because women are so funny so like whoever says there's people I know are women yeah is silly jokes on them I mean your parents think we're boning what you two have especially we are going to show each other how much we care about each other well probably just do a Korean face mask I don't need to know all the words
