Gillian Jacobs attended the Vogue And Tory Burch Celebrate The Tory Burch Watch Collection on November 11th, 2014. The designer invited a group of West Coasters to join her for a small dinner she hosted alongside Vogue on the private terrace at her Beverly Hills boutique. “Everyone looks so beautiful tonight,” Burch remarked of her guests—Jaime King, Gillian Jacobs, Aubrey Plaza, Brooklyn Decker, Joy Bryant, Rashida Jones, Claiborne Swanson Frank, and Camilla Belle, many dressed in Tory Burch, caught up over branzino, fillets of beef, and caramel bread pudding that disappeared quickly. 15 images have been added to our site.
Time.com – The Life Partners actress talks about her upcoming Girls role and why the new Community episodes could still end up back on TV
Gillian Jacobs is about to rule streaming video: her cult hit Community is headed to Yahoo and she has a Netflix series with Judd Apatow in the works. But first, she’s starring in Life Partners, a movie about two co-dependent best friends that hits video-on-demand on Nov. 6 and arrives in theaters in Dec. 5. TIME caught up with the actress to talk about female friendship, her ideal night in and whether this year is the Year of the Gillians.
Your co-star Leighton Meester said much of this movie was improvised. How was that? I think there was a lot of it that was scripted, and then there’s probably a lot of moments in there that are just us goofing around that they kept in. I’d have to re-watch the movie right now to tell you what I remember being improvised. But I remember it was a really loose, fun atmosphere where it just felt like everyone was hanging out.
Is the director like, “Come on guys, get serious, we need to finish this movie”? We were professionals about it, but I think they were excited that Leighton and I were getting along because we didn’t know each other before we started the movie. That was a big risk for them, casting two people who never really spent time together.
You two do play convincing best friends. We didn’t have trailers on that movie, so it’d be everyone hanging out in whatever place we were shooting. Sometimes that gets a little tiresome, but a lot of time that leads to people getting to know each other better and hanging out more, which is great.
So is Leighton your BFF now? I love Leighton! I have not seen her recently — she was in New York for a long time doing Of Mice and Men, but I think she is one of the nicest, sweetest, funniest people I’ve ever worked with.
