No one is more excited for “The Guilt Trip,” the Seth Rogen/Barbra Streisand mother/son road trip movie, than one of its stars, Ari Graynor. You see, she got to geek out on set starring alongside the legendary singer and actress in the flick opening this December.
“I know! I just need to take little beat and say ’I know’!” she told MTV News about her part in the film, written by Dan Fogelman and directed by Anne Fletcher. It follows Rogen, an inventor who takes his mom (Streisand) on a road trip to sell his latest invention. He also is aiming to reunite his mom with her lost love.
“I can’t talk too much about it, but I will just say that being in the same zip code as Barbra Streisand is like you know… There isn’t a bigger dream come true,” she said. “It was really exciting. The script for that movie is genius. It’s a road trip movie with Seth Rogen and Barbra Streisand as son and mother. Like what could be better? Literally nothing, that the answer. Nothing could better.”
While she wouldn’t elaborate further on her part in the film, she did add, “I’m not in it that much, but I was so excited to be a part of it.”
The film may have been the first time that Graynor got the chance to work with Streisand, but it’s hardly the first time that she and Rogen have worked together. He appears in her naughty chick flick, “For A Good Time, Call…,” opening Friday.
