Ethan Hawke, Julie Delpy, and director Richard Linklater took to Reddit this week to answer questions from fans and Redditors about their film Before Midnight. The trio didn't stop there; they also shed some light on the past and (possible!) future installments in the series. Did Jesse (Hawke) ever pay the bartender for his bottle of wine in Before Sunrise? Is there a manlier name than Ethan Hawke? What inspired Before Midnight's ending? Find these answers (and more) below.
Reddit AMAs (Ask Me Anything) can be revealing, but often they're hard to sift through, so we did the sifting for you! Here are the most insightful and hilarious tidbits from the whole interview.
- On whether Jesse ever repaid the bar owner in Vienna for the bottle of wine:
Ethan Hawke: Here's the vote: Julie says no. Rick says he would like to think so — he thought about it, he wanted to. And I have the actual answer, which is (believe it or not), when he showed up six months later, while he was waiting for Celine, in hopes of good karma, he went over to that place and tried to pay the guy back but the guy didn't work there anymore, so he just left someone else a tip.
- On what type of movies they hope to be doing five years from now:
Richard Linklater: Well, Ethan hopes to be doing The Purge 7 so he can crank one out every six months.
