Here’s an excerpt from the interview, as Gilbert shares her reaction to the film: “What I was watching encapsulated the worst and best time of my life, condensed down into two hours. So I came out of it shaken, amazed, delighted, tearful … it’s essentially like this amazing director and this great actress and this cinematographer got together and made me a home movie of my year’s journey. But they Photoshopped me out and replaced me with somebody with really amazing skin and 36-inch legs. Who wouldn’t love that?”
