Diablo Cody Explains “Young Adult”

Uploaded on Wednesday 14 December 2011


I just love Miss Diablo Cody! She’s witty, nice, and writes really great characters, okay, “Jennifer’s Body” was a misstep. But with “Young Adult,” Cody got her groove back! She spins an original tale about a 30-something woman (wonderfully played by Charlize Theron) who still thinks she’s a young adult.

SIDENOTE: I started following Diablo Cody way back during the height of MySpace. Then, “Juno” happened, and her star exploded! I haven’t been back on MySpace to check up on her. I haven’t been back on MySpace period! Have you?

In this interview, we talked about:

*** The movie’s un-Hollywood treatment of romantic comedies
*** What made her want to make “Young Adult?”
*** Is Charlize Theron’s character redeemed in the end? Did she learn anything?
*** The movie as a character study
*** Her Midwest roots
*** Working with Jason Reitman the second time around
*** Any regrets from High School?

Have fun!
