Thanks so much, Boyd, we really appreciate you sitting down with us.
"Refinery29 is a woman thing, right? I have always felt like I was born a woman."
"Well, it's night and day."
"Well, fashion is quite mindless. You know, I just sat there and got my photograph taken. I was just doing it to pay for school." (Picks up the interviewer's glove and begins to try to put it on.)
In the movie, your character has two women at odds over you. Has that ever happened in real life?
"Have I? I don't think so..."
"Oh, God. It goes like that. (Wiggles thumb in thumb hole.) This is more to my speed. Oh, your questions. In a lot of fantasies, I think women fight over me."
"Well, I just like women...who have their own life and are very secure with themselves. It's so hard to say a category. I do, however, have a really, really special bond with redheads. They are their own special kind. It's amazing." (Note: The interviewer has bright red hair; Boyd is grinning.)
"Oh God, I can't wait for that. I actually don't know if it is going to have the same type of phenomenon."
"You are right. Ugh. And then the tabloids will get a hold of us and ruin our lives. Hopefully. I am crossing my fingers."
"It's (cinematographer) Bobby Bukowski, man. He's got such a great eye.
You guys filmed the summer before Sandy in The Rockaways. Is it weird to think some of that stuff is just gone?
"Oh, wow. Yeah, the opening scene is on the beach. And I guess it's just not there."
"I've got a film I've written that I'll be directing this summer. It's about two boys in Appalachia in 2003, who enlisted in the military to escape their world. I exhibited sculpture in Manhattan and also did a bit of photography recently. Oh, and I have six movies coming out this year."
"Yeah. Where do you live? You live in Bushwick, huh?"
"On the L? What stop?"
"Oh, that's definitely Williamsburg."
Yeah, it's a great 'hood. Hey, can I have my glove back?
