In addition to her recent interview and photoshoot with Redbook, Lauren Graham (Lorelai Gilmore on Gilmore Girls) spoke with Vanity Fair about a number of topics, including the potential of a Gilmore Girls movie - which, she finally admits, has real potential!!
“It might [happen]. What’s funny to me is that in all these years, no one ever talked about it except the fans. But now people with power, people who could actually make it happen, are talking about it. I think it could be good, but I wonder if we’ve waited too long. I don’t want to be walking around the town square with a cane.”
Let’s move on to the interview and talk first about the difficulty that tv shows have in casting love interests for her who are taller than she is!
“I’m pretty sure we went through all the tall guys on Gilmore Girls. I dated all of them.”
She even made reference to John Hamm on Gilmore Girls! She also joked about playing mom roles who had no income, including being the woman who “handed keys to day players who were carrying luggage” at the Dragonfly Inn.
In true Lauren Graham fashion, Lauren quipped about the loss of Mr Cyr (Jason Ritter), Sarah’s last love interest in Parenthood, saying he left to “become a terrorist”, his role on The Event. She then movies on to how “our Sookie” is now “Molly” on Mike & Molly, though Mike isn’t from Stars Hollow. ;)
Last joke in there is Lauren talking about how she “had to hump a chair” for Bad Santa. The whole movie of which still embarrasses her father. And, BEST funny question:
Between Sarah Braverman and Lorelai Gilmore, which of them is more likely to have sex in a car with a half-drunk Santa?
Lorelai! Well, wait… god, it’s a real toss-up, isn’t it? Cause neither of those girls were too lucky in love. I think with Lorelai it would be too risky. She’s in a small town, and there are too many people who could find out about it, or even walk by when she’s in the middle of it. Miss Patty and Babette Dell would gossip to everybody. So yeah, probably Sarah Braverman.
Then, head on over to read the rapid fire questions. OMG funny.
