I think it'll be fascinating to have two totally various understandings of similar occasions and time span."

Everything chugged along as expected, everything was lovely, everything was coordinated, we never had a terrible day on set. I super expectation we did the entire thing equity, however one way or the other, an encounter I'll esteem."
