to see you. Armie, good to see you. Now, congratulations tonight. Thank you. Kind of an amazing year for you. It's been busy. Yeah, yeah, yeah. And another busy one ahead next year, right? Yeah, yeah, yeah. Very busy. Which is exciting! I have a job after this job, which is like, in terms of actor jobs, very rare. Now I heard that you are going to be starting on Lone Ranger very soon. Where are you guys going to be shooting? Really all over the Southwest, sort of. Like, I think a lot in sort of New Mexico. Anywhere where there's a good barren plain we can abuse. Have you had the chance to meet Johnny yet? No, nope. But we got soon to start all the pre production and all that, so. Now obviously you've also got Mirror Mirror was there kind of a little bit of pressure playing like the Prince Charming? No. Not really because we tried to make him as little Prince Charming as possible more just like a normal just like a normal dude just trying to find himself. So, we. It was actually fun getting to play Prince Charming because we got to sort of smash the Prince Charming stereotype. And that Julia Roberts looks kind of amazing and the Queen. She is all kinds of amazing and getting to work with her, you're just like, there was one scene that she was doing and I was sitting, I was sitting next to the camera like, this like 'cause we do off camera lines all of the stuff, and she was doing her lines to me and I was sitting like this right next to the camera. And out of the corner of my eye I saw just a little screen that showed exactly what was being shot and it was so beautiful. The way Julia was sitting, the way the background, the dress, everything that I literally just like, I got distracted by it and she was such a professional that she kept doing the entire scene without me and we're just like, I was just like that and then at the end, I was like, "Oh my gosh. I'm so sorry. It just looks so good. You were doing such a good job." She's like, "No. It's fine. I got it. Just no worries. I don't even need you here." Well, congratulations. Thank you very much. Good seeing you.
