Your own TikTok page gained attention. What do you attribute this success to?
This is interesting – I really don’t know. I’m not a social person, which is funny because now it’s my job and my life. But I like to share what I’m doing. People love to see behind the scenes footage. I never look at myself; a lot of the time, I don’t even want to show myself in the video.
You do a great job doing red carpet interviews. Is there an art form for this?
When I do rugs, I don’t want to make headlines. I just want to have some fun. I’m there to make sure the show or movie gets seen because I work in a studio. Even regardless of my own opinion of the project, I want people to watch as much as possible and decide what they think is good or bad. It’s good to watch something you don’t like – you form your own taste and opinion! I want the rug to be a safe space for talent at the end of the day, just because of how many eyes there are, how much pressure there is. There’s no need to be toxic on the carpet – just be friendly! Everyone is just trying to do their job.
Your style on the rug is also great. What’s your take on red carpet dressing?
It’s a combination of three things. Functionality is important because I move a lot and don’t want to be uncomfortable. There’s a vibe — if it’s a comedy, you can have a little fun, if it’s a serious movie, I don’t show my face. Then there’s the cost: I don’t like spending money. Sometimes I hire a stylist for things like the Oscars, but for the most part I put things together for rugs I find on eBay. I love suits – I’m a huge fan of trousers and cropped jackets. I like to mix and match and put things together.
