From The Archive: Eddie Murphy
This week, Krista takes a look back at her 2019 conversation with Eddie Murphy. At this year's Golden Globes, Murphy received the Cecil B. DeMille Award for "outstanding contributions to the world of entertainment.” During his acceptance speech, Murphy mentioned that he’s been in show business for 46 years, and in the movie business for 41. It’s incredible to reckon with the legacy Murphy has created, and in this conversation, he reflects on his career path – from being inspired as a kid by Muhammad Ali, to starting stand up at 15, eventually getting cast on SNL, and beyond.

From The Archive: Amanda Seyfried
This week, Krista takes a look back at her 2020 conversation with Amanda Seyfried. At the time, Seyfried had recently starred as Marion Davies in Mank, David Fincher’s film about the screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz. Just a few months after this conversation was recorded, that performance earned Seyfried her first Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actress.
In the years since, Seyfried has hit a new stride in her career – earning wide-spread critical acclaim for her portrayal of Elizabeth Holmes in The Dropout including an Emmy win last year and a Golden Globe win this past January.
In this interview, Seyfried discusses her experience preparing for Mank, shares why working with Fincher is such a singular experience, and explains how it made her think differently about her own approach to the work.
