Spike Jonze's Her is racking up the accolades this awards season and nominated for this Sunday's Golden Globes (Best Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical, Best Motion Picture Screenplay and Joaquin Phoenix for Best Actor – Comedy or Musical). ET's Rob Marciano was the only entertainment reporter invited to sit down with Joaquin and co-star Amy Adams to talk about the critically acclaimed project, and their interview was definitely full of amusing banter – from Joaquin's proclaimed love for the ET theme song to why he calls Amy "Angry Adams." Watch the video!
Her is a near-future tale about a heartbroken man (played by Joaquin) who falls hard for an advanced, intuitive operating system with a female voice (by Scarlett Johansson) that is insightful, sensitive and surprisingly funny. In the end, does it matter whether or not your true love is human? Is Her a window into our upcoming reality around the corner?
Asked if they're addicted to technology, Joaquin replies, "Well, isn't everybody?"
"I'm addicted to my phone, yeah," says Amy, observing, "Right now, people have virtual relationships – it's with real people, but it's still a virtual relationship. So much of business is done virtually, it's hard to connect with people and talk with them, so everything's about perception, and I think we're alienating ourselves from human interaction."
Watch the video to get Amy's reaction to Joaquin's movie mustache, and to see if either of them has a good relationship or not with Siri on their iPhones!
