FRANCO: Speaking of, there’s a sequence in the film where your character is on drugs.

BRIE: On Molly.

FRANCO: Do you want to talk about how you prepared for that?

BRIE: Well, for the first half of the movie, she’s kind of the uptight wife and there’s a very sexy sort of love triangle happening with the other characters. She doesn’t want to party with everyone on the first night. The next night when there’s a lot of heavy shit going down, she’s on this drug. It’s a really fun aspect of her character.

FRANCO: How did you prepare?

BRIE: I’m getting to it. As you remember from our life together, I hadn’t done Molly since the night that we met, almost eight-and-a-half-years ago. So I may have procured some Molly, and you and I went away for the weekend. Then, as if mirroring the movie, our plan was like, “I got a little Molly. Let’s go to Ojai. We’ll both do a little for research.”

FRANCO: Strictly research.

BRIE: “Maybe we’ll film some stuff with our phones. We’ll take notes.” It was actually, I think, a nerdy approach. When we got to Ojai you were super-stressed out. You had a major thing going on with the movie.

FRANCO: I still didn’t have a first A.D., and we were running out of time. I was literally taking phone calls with different first A.D.s pulling my hair out.

BRIE: But you were still like, “Maybe I’ll do a little.” And then I did a good amount, and you didn’t do it at all.

FRANCO: I did a tiny, tiny bit, but it didn’t really affect me.

BRIE: Then I was Michelle, dancing around our hotel room for the rest of the night, by myself, while you filmed me.

FRANCO: It was pretty informative. We asked the rest of the cast if they wanted to see the video of you on Molly so that they could apply it to their own performances when they are on Molly at a different point in the film. We found out after the fact that they’ve all done Molly before. They knew exactly how to play it.

BRIE: No one needed to see that video, but they did enjoy it.

FRANCO: We all got a good laugh out of it.
