Artists use lies to tell the truth. Yes, I created a lie. But because you believed it, you found something true about yourself.

Whenever you read a good book, somewhere in the world a door opens to allow in more light.

One of our last nights in Pittsburgh, we stayed up all night filming in this beautiful church. (Readers of the book will know the scene.) Around 4 in the morning, the crew had to set up for a new shot. Ansel and Nat sat down at the piano and began improvising together, a sad and beautiful song that filled the church. Shai and I were crying when we took these pictures, as was much of the movie’s crew. It is my most vivid memory of our wonderful time together filming the movie, and I’ve been thinking back to it a lot the past few days. The Fault in Our Stars movie was made by people who cared about the story and cared about each other. I’m so grateful to them, and to everyone who is now seeing the movie and responding to it so deeply. #tfios

“It’s very interesting to watch out for the triggers that lead to Darcy’s falling in love. Of course, love often starts with something trivial that attracts your attention. In Darcy’s case, very little had ever attracted his attention. So I think the first trigger is the moment when Elizabeth rejects him so impertinently — when she overhears him saying, ‘She’s tolerable, I suppose, but not handsome enough to tempt me.’ When she walks past and gives him a cheeky look, Andrew [Davies] was very helpful here in writing, ‘Darcy was used to looking at other people like that, but was not used to being looked at like that himself.’ So at that moment, I think, he notices her simply out of bewilderment and curiosity; he becomes intrigued by her, which, I suspect, is the first time he has ever been intrigued by a woman, and he has to know a little bit more about her. It strikes me that you can be on a fatal course from a moment like that whether you know it or not.” — Colin Firth
