CreLo's covergirl: Lily Tomlin

Check out this week's cover story in Creative Loafing for a good interview on Lily Tomlin. She talks about her career, the Laugh-In Days, Robert Altman, playing in the south - and yes, that YouTube video I brought up yesterday.

For the record - she's right about what it's like working on a project with actors and a director. It's no different from stage to film. I had an acting teacher in my MFA program tell me once that "all artists are just bundles of exposed nerves" - and he was right. Tempers can flare, things can be said and at the end of the day everyone can usually still go out and grab a pint or cocktail and act like nothing happened.
