When it comes to making people laugh, no one does it quite like famous film and TV director Paul Feig.
PureWow recently spoke with the director about his upcoming event—a virtual watch-along of his film Bridesmaids, during which he’ll spill behind-the-scenes secrets over a couple of specialty cocktails. For every person tuning into the special, which takes place Thursday, September 24 at 8 p.m., Artingstall’s (Feig’s gin company) will donate $1 to Family Promise, helping families who are experiencing homelessness.
During the chat, the 58-year-old opened up about what it was like working on the film almost ten years ago (we know, we can’t believe it either).
“It was a very fun movie to make, especially during a time when there weren’t a lot of comedies with an all-female cast,” Feig told PureWow. “There was a lot of pressure on it because the town hadn’t really done a movie that was that female-fronted before, so they were kind of on a holding pattern to see how we did commercially. That cast was just so wonderful to work with. And the camaraderie was so strong. Everyone wanted to make sure they all came off their best. In that regard, it was a very stress-free production.”
