Rachael Leigh Cook and Matthew Lillard on He’s All That and Social Media

you guys uh came up in the 90s in terms of making movies and getting in the limelight nowadays you know you have social media is instant when people are doing anything it’s on social media it’s being reported when you guys were in the limelight in the 90s it was like weekly magazines covering what stars were doing do you think you would have been able to you know take it back then this question came out bad but hopefully you understand it oh i totally understand you’re saying and you’re making me think of something i hadn’t thought of before actually which is that it makes my job way harder if people intimately know who i just plain at how are you supposed to believe that i’m somebody else in some other situation you know when you know what i had for breakfast this morning and what it sounds like when i left earlier you’re like i don’t know what this that’s a terrible example but like people just expose their whole lives on social media and it’s in this pursuit of seeming as transparent and as knowable as possible and that’s really antithetical to what we do right yeah it’s a great answer i mean i also think that look i think both of us would have been fine because neither one of us were like out partying and it’s not the world we grew up in i mean that’s not certainly not the hollywood i grew up in like i still play dungeons and dragons i grew up you know doing playing and doing plays and in drama and going to theater school so i was never in this space to be sort of a wild man so i would have been fine in that respect but i and and it’s also like it does feel finicky like who gets found and why you get followed i don’t know if i ever would have been an addison ray who is this her own industry i mean she’s a major industry and i don’t know if i could ever have done what she does it’s a full-time job yeah people certainly would not have been interested in any kind of content i can’t really dance like her either she’s so dance but i am tick talking i started to tic tac tic tacking i’m tic-tacking nobody’s gonna follow me this is stupid i will i keep trying to do i’ll show you i’m about to tick-tock us go ahead next question as a tick-tock uh i am curious what it was like for the two of you though when you stepped on set for the first time making this movie realizing that you’re the parents in this situation when you know what i mean i’m sorry he’s asking a serious question i know it was very helpful i can’t wait to see your answer about how mature and grown-up we are the two shots you’re directing this interview you know something though this is listen i’ve been in some very bland and boring interviews i’ll take this every day of the week no one’s ever here no sorry give it the smart answer was it weird going to work the first time it was a little are you scared it was a little weird you nervous i think i did feel a little well it’s it’s also really hard going onto a set after everybody’s sort of like in the groove already you feel like you’re sort of like playing in somebody else’s yard a little bit you take a minute to find your footing see what the set dynamics feel like make sure you know the exact tone of the movie et cetera et cetera so you always feel like a little bit funny your first day at least i do so in that sense come you know combined with the fact that i was like revisiting something intensely familiar to me yeah it was a pretty weird first day on set but then i realized that i was in a very friendly space and i think it was a really great experience all in all yeah i mean for me it was humbling right you’re you’re joining a group i mean i literally was on the last three days of the movie so i like the it was like being at thanksgiving dinner and showing up for the pie i mean i was like everyone was like i’m like what where’s what’s happening were the inside jokes but it was very sweet because i feel like that you know the whole cast was super respectful and were earnestly like excited that i was there had all seen the movie had all grown up with scooby-doo like they were very sweet and very like open about they were gushing about the fact that i was there so it felt yeah it felt like i was it was humbling right and it’s such a look at such an iconic role in my life in my career so to go back for me was sweet and i i actually really cherished it in a weird way it was really it was fun and humbling i’m actually curious when you guys think back on she’s all that what’s like one or two of the big memories that always comes to like your mind you know in terms of making the movie yeah i mean personally i mean i always think about paul walker and god bless the soul but like he was it was like his first film and he was i have very clear memories of him freddie and i and dulay sitting there talking and hanging out so that’s one thing that’s a sweet memory and then the dance scene for me was a big piece of my life where i’ll walk in and that song will play and like sort of the whole room will like look at me to see if i’m gonna do the dance so it’s like you know those two pieces of my life and then my first date with my wife who i’m still married with like a hundred years later i was in the middle of doing that movie and so so he had like the fake tattoos all over him and like they weren’t fake i like to go full he’s real they’re real yeah i like to get into my roles so that’s a real tattoo it says me and it’s pretty badass i should redraw that and that’s why i should tick-tock i should put that on my tick-tock that would be the case we’re gonna blow this thing up we’re gonna go we’re going big ass and ray look out sorry what’s your what’s your memories well were you there yeah you were there and usher was there right sir sure right so like his i remember that you make me want i was the first like cd disc single i had like ever bought i was like is he here hello number one on the call sheet i don’t know if you’ve seen me yes i remember we were i’ve been made over we were filming the prom scene and it was like we were in this gym and there’s just way too many like background everybody people ever it’s it’s really hot back there and tamara mello who plays like uh one of my antagonists in the movie was standing next to me and usher was next to her and he goes oh it’s pretty hot in here and tamara goes you should probably take your shirt off and he did no he did not yeah stop it nobody ever says that next to me nobody’s ever said matt super hot take your shirt off thank you so much [Laughter] thank reason you go just
