Billie Lourd on Living Without Her Mom and Grandma: “It’s Impossible to Deal With”

September 13, 2017

Billie Lourd made her first appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Tuesday, where she opened up about her late mother, Carrie Fisher, and grandmother, Debbie Reynolds. While the American Horror Story actress has been trying her best to keep their memories alive since their sudden deaths last December, she admitted it’s still very surreal. “There’s no way to really explain it, and it’s so hard to talk about,” she told the host. “If I say that I’m doing good, I’m too happy. If I say that I’m not doing good, then I’m a mess. It’s really hard to know what to say about it because it is so surreal and impossible to deal with.”

Even though their deaths were very painful, she is grateful she got to share the screen with her mother in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. “It was incredible,” she said of the experience. “I’m a big believer of things happening for a reason, and I think I ended up in that movie for a reason. It was really incredible for us to get to have that experience together.”

Louis C.K. defends controversial elements in ‘I Love You, Daddy’: “It’s just a f—ing movie”

September 11, 2017


  • Louis C.K.'s movie I Love You, Daddy is getting heat for some of the elements and dialogue in the movie. C.K. directed/co-wrote the film as well as starred in it. C.K.'s character says the n-word, co-stars Pamela Adlon and Ebonee Noel repeatedly use "retard," and Charlie Day's character makes child rape jokes. The film focuses on an amoral and affluent cast. Chloë Grace Moretz plays C.K.'s character's daughter, and she is dating a film director played by John Malkovich.
  • What Louis C.K. has to say about those criticizing the movie: "We’re depicting oxygen-rich people who live in these beautiful apartments and offices saying whatever they want. Folks say shit to each other. You can’t think about the audience when you’re making the thing. If you do, you’re not giving them something that came out of your gut. You’ll be making something that you’re like, ‘Is this OK for you?’ And they say, 'Yes, thank you.' Mark Twain said something like, 'You can’t say no one can eat steak just because the baby doesn’t have teeth yet.'"
  • Charlie Day added: "People seem to forget that we’re making movies. Now, I don’t go around in my daily life using the r-word or the n-word, throwing it around, but people do in reality, and Louis is making art depicting these people. The idea that we can’t even make a piece of art depicting the character that says something offensive is absurd."
  • The movie recently played at the Toronto International Film Festival. Buyers are already interested in picking up I Love You, Daddy. C.K. finishes with: "You make the thing, and everyone discusses it and they are OK. It’s just a f—ing movie."

Climate change is due to human activity. And we continue to ignore it, and the only voice we have is through voting.” When asked about her thoughts on President Donald Trump, she said, “I don’t find him confusing. I think I know exactly what he is.” Still, despite the state of our current political climate, Jennifer remains hopeful. Watch her interview in full above now.
