Did you ever have an affair with a neighbor, like the couple in the movie does? “Oh, God no! You have to never even know your neighbor if you can help it.” Sounds like you're a New Yorker. “Exactly.” —Amy Irving

Does your mom, Susan Sarandon, approve of you playing a stripper for your role in the TV show Californication? “My mom came to a strip class with me, actually. She had been so curious about it, and she tried a little bit. She was awesome.” —Eva Amurri

Luke Parker Bowles

Charlotte Ronson

Did seeing this movie change your views on Asperger’s syndrome, since the main character has it? “I have to say the idea of dating somebody with Asperger’s — it becomes more and more appealing because they’re just completely brutally honest about everything.” —Duncan Sheik
