    When Z says that she's embarrassed or shy, it reminds me of how incredible her acting skills are, she's truly amazing

    I love this interviewer every time I see him. I feel like he really tries to connect to the people he's talking to. In this one, I think it took them a few minutes, but then they warmed right up to him. I sense that people usually enjoy being interviewed by him

    Josh really felt strongly about how embarrassing ADR was 😂
  • @sweetheartsjj
    The “we’re not doing what he’s doing” had me cackling

    Ali Plumb is is one of the best in the business. To see him charm them, while also feeling like he was paying attention to the film, while also slipping in funny questions, it's a beautiful thing to witness. He even had Mike Faist crack a smile.

    Ali Plumb is such a ridiculously good interviewer. He puts them all at ease.
  • @RG-em2lg
    this is genuinely one of the best interviews i've seen. I love how he engages them and shows genuine curiosity instead of going strictly off a script or bulletpoints
  • @PokhrajRoy.
    They’re such a fun trio to watch in interviews 👏🏽 (AND THEN Ali Plumb enters the chat)

    When you give Ali a compliment, he sweats on cue too 😂

    loved hearing a little bit about luca's directing from them, very glad the interviewer asked about it! the part zendaya mentions about mike's character reaching out to her was such a nice touch, that one simple movement communicated so much about their characters and the relationship between them. luca truly is a legend
