Why’ C’mon C’mon’ star Woody Norman claims to have ‘carried’ co-star Joaquin Phoenix throughout the entire movie.
C’mon C’mon has received high praise from critics for Joaquin Phoenix’s outstanding performance.
Woody Norman, on the other hand, is a relative newcomer who is causing quite a stir.
After seeing Norman’s performance on C’mon C’mon, viewers will see him again.
Norman is also aware of his impressive performance.
He recently stated that in A24 Films’ newest film, he actually out-acted his Oscar-winning co-star.
C’mon C’mon, directed by Mike Mills, follows Johnny (Phoenix), a radio journalist.
He’s traveling across the United States, interviewing young people to learn what makes them happy and how they see the future.
His eyes are being opened to the various perspectives that children have of America and the country’s current course.
After a difficult family situation, Johnny reunites with his sister, Viv (Gaby Hoffmann).
When Viv needs his help with her son, Jesse (Norman), they rekindle their relationship.
Johnny hasn’t seen the young boy in years, and they are practically strangers to each other.
Despite this, they embark on a cross-country road trip together, learning as much about themselves as they do about each other.
Mills and Norman’s C’mon C’mon panel at the Vulture Festival was featured in Vulture.
The filmmaker is frequently asked how difficult working with a child actor is.
“You have no idea how childlike this person [Norman] is,” Mills explained.
And Joaquin [Phoenix] and Gaby [Hoffman] are so childish!”
Norman was almost hesitant to share a behind-the-scenes story about his chemistry reading with Phoenix.
“I don’t know if I should say this, but when we were doing the chemistry read, I knew the lines, he didn’t,” he said.
Mills, on the other hand, chimed in with an explanation for why Phoenix didn’t know his lines as well as how the chemistry read quickly turned into something much bigger.
Phoenix doesn’t “even know if he’s doing the movie really,” according to Mills.
Woody has all of his lines memorized, and Joaquin is staring off to the side.
And Joaquin just improvised the line, and Woody is like, ‘Oh, I’m sorry, that’s not the line.’
‘Hold on tight and get ready.’
“I’ve been carrying you this whole film!” Norman teased Phoenix at the end of the shoot, and Phoenix laughed, but he recognized how good the young actor is in C’mon C’mon.
“After a scene, he comes in and says, ‘That little f***er! He is so good,'” Mills recalled Phoenix saying.
‘What a f***ing scumbag!’
