In time for Oscar season, Hollywood’s top stars talk about the movies that move them
Everyone has a favorite movie—even movie stars themselves. In You Gotta See This, veteran entertainment reporter Cindy Pearlman gets the scoop on the top movie picks of Hollywood’s entertainment elite. Through over one hundred interviews with actors, writers, and directors, Pearlman discovers the eclectic—and sometimes surprising—tastes of the people who make the movies we love: * Jet Li discusses the “Buddhist themes” that made him a lifelong Star Wars fan * Johnny Depp talks about how The Wizard of Oz gave him hope of escaping his bleak childhood in rural Florida * Jennifer Lopez recalls the inspiration of seeing “proof that my people could sing, dance, and act” in West Side Story * Vin Deisel explains why he considers Gone With the Wind “the ultimate action movie”
From Bruce Willis on Dr. Strangelove to Jim Carrey on Network, You Gotta See This is a compulsively readable, star-studded tribute to the movies.
