Welcome to the debut episode of “Happy Sad Confused!” Kind of. OK, not really. Despite being around since 2014, “Happy Sad Confused” is now new and improved and will be joining the MTV podcast network at long last. For the uninitiated, here’s the deal: Each week, Josh Horowitz nerds out with the biggest movie stars and directors — it’s that simple. If you’re late to the party, you’ve already missed everyone from Hugh Jackman and Tom Hiddleston to Kristen Stewart and Anna Kendrick swinging by. But don’t worry, they’ll be back! Anna’s come by three times already.
This week, Josh has returned from the Toronto International Film Festival with three interviews in tow. First up is early Academy Award front-runner Emma Stone, starring in La La Land. Emma reveals her useless Trivial Pursuit skills, why it took her so long to do a musical, and her reluctance to watch Game of Thrones alone.
Next up is Lily James, of Cinderella and Downton Abbey fame, starring in the upcoming thriller The Exception. Lily reveals how she ended up recently singing the Spice Girls in a strip club and why she’s a conflicted cat lady at heart.
Finally, a gloriously off-the-rails catch-up with Jai Courtney, who opens up about the divided Suicide Squad reactions, whether he might be coming back to The Flash, and how disturbingly comfortable he is being nude on-screen.
