“Growing up, a lot of my friends parents didn’t want me around their children because of my personality and the way I looked and dressed. They thought I was trash but I really was not a trashy person. It stemmed from the fact that I had absolutely nothing as a child and I just wanted so badly to be noticed. When I finally made some money, I went over the top. But why not? I don’t look the way I do out of ignorance, I look this way because I like it. Anybody can look like a common Joe. I look like I came out of a fairy tale.”


The time I saw her purple tour bus pull up. And she scolded us all “it smells like reefer! Pass some up here!”

“The character design of Flynn came from the process which was called the “hot man meeting” by Nathan Greno and Byron Howard, during which they set up a meeting with all of the female employees of the studio in one room and asked them for their opinions of what made a man good looking in order to create Flynn’s character design with features such as eye color, hair color and style and body type. Video footage showed concept art and photos of various male celebrities, including Johnny Depp, Hugh Jackman, Brad Pitt, David Beckham and Gene Kelly on the walls of the room. Director Byron Howard said they wanted to make Flynn “the most handsome, most attractive male lead Disney has ever had.”


“The hot man meeting” is now my second favorite animation design story, after the one about how Pixar animators working on the Dug team for Up had “fat dog day” where they basically went to a shelter and were like “please bring out your fattest dogs,” and then they hung out with the fattest jolliest available dogs, all day.
