CHRISTINE LAKIN

“I mean, these are real people with real wants, and I wouldn’t say they’re desperate, but they’re hopeful. I feel like when the other stuff doesn’t work, you know, you should start throwing caution to the wind. I think that’s really brave, especially in this case.”

MARK PELLINGTON

“There’s bitter, which is decidedly distasteful, right? And there’s sweet. Bittersweet is that combination. In the film, all these things come from a girl who’s 19 years old, and it is that—bittersweet, like a pain you desire. It’s a contradiction. It’s the past, and it’s probably not good for me, but I like it. I feel comfortable in it. It’s like an ailment that you enjoy.”

LISA LILLIEN

"The thing about ‘not having time’… I feel like you can always make excuses about not having time for something. But, you guys, you wake up every day, you have time to brush your teeth. You have time to do that. So you have to have time to think about your eating if it’s important to you."

ANGIE AND RUBY

"When Ruby makes a new friend, my first instinct is to make sure they want to be her friend for the right reasons. Ruby has always been quite popular at school (even more so now with her social media presence), so it’s my job to make sure her friends are true and not just hanging out with her for attention."

ZACHARY HAVEN

"You learn so much from [actors] just based on what they do and how they act. You know, sometimes I look at the other actors’ scripts just to see what they do with them. And it’s like, there are multiple ways of doing the scenes … One of the things I thought was [interesting] was when I looked at Ed Helms’ script, who was my father in one of the movies I filmed, he had a script that was just filled with notes, and that was really cool to see."

RACHAEL O'BRIEN

"Yeah, that show was not cast with, like, random people. You know how other reality shows are just random people that didn’t necessarily know each other, maybe a few of ‘em did? And they’re cast just to be on it? Vanderpump Rules is not like that at all."

LILIA BUCKINGHAM

"Because we've all experienced bad cyberbullying and hate, we tried to figure out a way to teach people how to avoid it, how to step away from it, how to make it better ... We all just kind of wanted to come together and, oh, this sounds so cheesy, but make a difference."
