During rehearsals, Brad Pitt and Edward Norton found out that they both hated the new Volkswagen Beetle with a passion, and for the scene where Tyler and The Narrator are hitting cars with baseball bats, Pitt and Norton insisted that one of the cars be a Beetle. As Norton explains on the DVD commentary, he hates the car because the Beetle was one of the primary symbols of 60s youth culture and freedom. However, the youth of the 60s had become the corporate bosses of the 90s, and had repackaged the symbol of their own youth, selling it to the youth of another generation as if it didn’t mean anything. Both Norton and Pitt felt that this kind of corporate selling out was exactly what the film was railing against, hence the inclusion of the car; “It’s a perfect example of the Baby Boomer generation marketing its youth culture to us. As if our happiness is going to come by buying the symbol of their youth movement, even with the little flower holder in the plastic molding. It’s appalling to me. I hate it.” 

This has unlocked a whole new fury in me for the Baby Boomer generation.

This is half the reason I want to be a YA author.

you had one non-american/white, non-stick thin character and you get a white,blonde stick thin actress to play her

1. I have never written a central female character who was described as thin other than Lindsey Lee Wells. Also, Margo and Q are two of the only white-identified people I’ve written, so I don’t really know how to respond to that part of your statement.

2. I do not cast the movie adaptations of my books. I am a novelist, not a casting director. I did not choose who would play Margo anymore than I choose where the movie will be filmed or what the budget or soundtrack will be.

3. That said, I think Cara will do a wonderful job as Margo. As I’ve learned in the past few hours, a lot of people who don’t know Cara have extremely strong opinions about her as a person, which is weird, because they don’t know her. They have a lot of opinions about her body, too, especially its supposed inadequacies. Cara is living, on a much larger stage, the Margo Roth Spiegelman experience: She receives massive amounts of attention but she’s more a mirror than a window. The way people respond to her seems to be a reflection of one’s own experience and worldview more than it has anything to do with the actual person Cara is. I think this is part of why Cara’s audition was so powerful: Her understanding of Margo is deep and profound and about a lot more than the shape of her body.

The problem is this: if a character is defined as a specific ethnicity, a larger size or anything that’s not skinny gorgeous and white it’s totally acceptable to make them skinny gorgeous and white in casting (and talk about how her talent secured the role as though no POC or curvy girls are talented).

Yet if someone is described as white or skinny we would never ever ever adjust that casting. I guarantee you it would be indicated in the casting call that they have to be those things specifically.

I love you, John. Because you gave me a character who looked like me who was super intriguing and intelligent and desired. That happens to me none of the times. But now that she’s going to be a movie star, she doesn’t look like me anymore. And it just sucks! There are thousands of complex and meaty roles for skinny blondes out there. This one was supposed to be the one that went to us.

I think it was a Rookie Mag discussion that uncovered this great observation for me: One of the girls said she never saw herself in ads but that was okay because at her size and shape she never expected to be a model. But she never saw herself as a protagonist. Movies teach us to be the chubby funny friends in our own lives.

Just some food for thought!

I feel weird about eating these days or leaving the house, or existing in a material form at all, because having a body that talks too much and sweats and makes mistakes is exhausting, and here’s this dude just standing around with dented hair and a Napalm Death shirt over sweatpants shorts and it’s almost as if the whole world isn’t scrutinizing what’s in his cart at the grocery store, what he looks like without makeup on, how his gender affects his authenticity as a performer. I was looking straight at this spaced out, sweet-faced, charming guy, just standing there, calm and existing.
