from her interview with vulture (guess i’m spending some time on vulture today)

I work for Vulture, and we’re obsessed with your adorable Facebook page.
By the way, I’m trying to connect them all. I’m trying to connect my Instagram to my Facebook, because really, I can’t post to different things all the time. But what I love so much about social media — in the beginning, I was wary of it because I was just seeing pictures people were posting of themselves in their underwear. Just things that embarrass me. But what I love so much about Facebook and Twitter and Instagram, now that they’re all connected, is that you can use it as a place of gratitude, and of giving thanks.

Like the Donatella Versace roses.
Yes! Exactly! Which are right there! [Points to the window, where there’s a huge vase of what might be 100 white roses] Which is, like, the most roses I’ve ever gotten in my life. I want to say think you for things. I want to say thank you for the first female Saudi Arabian director [Haifaa Al-Mansourto], who made Wadjda. Or I wanted to write about Broken Circle Breakdown, the Belgian film. Or Oscar Isaacs, and how talented I think he is. So I try to keep it as a place of giving thanks, because I’ve been given so much.

With the roses you just wanted to be like, “Thanks, Donatella!”
Yeah, and also like, “Really?!” Like, I couldn’t even lift them! Someone lifted them and handed them to me. I don’t think I’d ever get used to something like that. I’m not blasé, you know? It’s still — crazy. But in a fabulous way. It’s not my everyday life, getting — I don’t even know how many roses that is.

Fifty, at least.
That’s only 50? No, it has to be more. That’s insane. It’s also the pot, too. Try to lift it.
