we've got chocolate on the table. we'll explain why in just a moment. first thing we're talking about is the weather. because it's been a cool summer here in the northeast. new york and boston by the way usually get 90 degrees about 15 times a year. 90 or higher. this day only four days. portland, oregon, is already triple that with 12. dallas didn't hit triple digits until july 13th. >> that is late. >> what do you guys think? >> i feel like i missed summer because i was away for a lot like in july. i was covering the world cup. >> you were in rio. >> but i missed it here. i missed being out with the kids in the pool somewhere. out on a beach. but, yeah, i feel like i missed summer. i feel like a lot of people are -- i think it's great. i don't like air conditioning. i don't like it. i don't like the feel of it. >> i don't have there in my house i don't turn it on here
9:03 am

9:05 am
somebody in five minutes. i don't know if that's really saying a lot about a person. that doesn't tell their life's story. here's another question. you're in a business meeting or job interview, what do cross legs mean? >> you have a skirt on. >> that's what i say. if you're a woman, it's what you do. when you're negotiating, it could have a devastating effect. >> come on. >> i think if you're a guy, perhaps. >> so they want you to go in as a woman and not cross your lelgs. >> that's a different kind of negotiating. >> that's a basic instinct thing. i think you have to be ladylike. janine has the palms down indicates power. if you're on the table. palms up shows submission. she tells us this all the time. so i don't have to worry about

crossing my legs. i walk in stand the whole time, and slam down. look at me, this is what's going to happen. or else. >> in that accent? >> yeah. works every time. >> i'll take you in when i buy a car. >> i think the rules are different with men and women on that one? a woman has to cross her legs when wearing a skirt. otherwise it's inappropriate. >> show time. >> this is the best ever. it reaches all of us. a researcher for a ph.d. of chocolate in the department of chemical engineering and biotechnology. yes. you at home, you can become a doctor of chocolate. isn't that fabulous? the challenge would be to stop chocolate melting in warm climates by studying the fundamentals of heat-stable chocolate. apply by august 29th.

9:10 am
walked her down the aisle. it accommodates the modern family and your story. >> i love the whole idea of somebody giving away the bride though. i think there's something timeless. >> i do see a way of people seeing it as you own me and you're giving me away. but i get it. >> did you ask for their hand in marriage. whether you're asking the mother of father. i think it's sweet. >> it's a sign of respect. >> but there is a line that people have as far as modern way of looking at life. >> i agree. >> my cup of tea, i'm more traditional. but i get it. >> and people don't have to do any of these things. >> yeah. >> all right, dylan dreyer. what's happening with the weather? >> it's freezing. >> i didn't have a wedding cake at our wedding. we had apple crisp instead. >> i love that. >> speaking of the perfect

9:17 am
performance. so what drew you to the role? >> i just wanted to work with ira, actually. i was doing another film that has the same producer in common. and they kind of dangled that bait. we're doing ira sachs' next movie. so i was like i want to be in it. >> i'm actor bait. >> without having read the script is what i mean. >> i think the script is -- you know, john lithgow was already in and people respond z to the story about love which is from three different perspectives. from this older couple, then marisa in the middle, then a young boy asking questions about love for the first time. so i think it's a human film. >> so it was the director but also the story and the issues it grapples with. i know they're important to you
9:18 am
not just in this film but life as well. >> yes. well, i mean, it celebrates and talks about love in a very -- how have you been saying it? >> it's human. i think to me there's issues around same-sex marriage, but that's the starting point. >> it is hard to articulate it. it is about same-sex marriage but really about love. >> it's a couple that's been together for 39 years. it's just in the subtleties of that relationship you see how deeply they know each other so well. >> i think what's rare for these actors is to actually be the lead in a story about an older couple. same-sex or not, there's not that many films out there where they're given the opportunity. i had the advantage of working with these incredible comic actors. i couldn't have imagined we could turn this film with a lot of dramatic situations into also
9:19 am
a comedy. but if you've got marisa tomei, yeah. >> how was that with john and alfred? the dynamic there had to be incredible. >> i felt so lucky. i'd worked with alfred many years ago, so it was a sweet reunion. and john is just the most generous, easy to fall into any scene with. he's a great actor. you want to be up there at their level and play with them. and our young gentleman, charlie, is also fantastic. >> ira, what do you hope people take away from this movie when they see it? >> i hope they connect to it in a really personal way. that seems to be what's happening in the movie. people feel it reflects part of their own lives. that can be from a variety of positions and experiences. when my mother and stepfather say that's our story, i feel i've honored them. >> it's beautiful, the long-term love, that intimacy. knowing someone so well and
9:20 am
having those shared jokes over so long and every -- the way that those two alfred and john know each other is so beautiful. and then my relationship with my husband isn't as happy. i have a lot of sour face going on. >> but everybody can connect. >> yeah. >> and i think on a level in terms of the changing notion of the times, i think this film is for a lot of people an introduction to a same-sex couple they haven't had before. and i think people leave the film knowing that they're part of their own family. and i think that's significant. we are in a new time and this film reflects that. >> congratulations on the film. it's a really sweet, lovely story. thank you for bringing it to us.
