Jennifer Westfeldt Interview

The GQ&A: Jennifer Westfeldt

Adapted from: gq.com

GQ: There are so many clichés in parenting films. And you skip them. Were you aware of that danger as you were writing?

Jennifer Westfeldt: Well, yes and no. On one hand, there was an attempt to avoid issues that have been done to death. I wanted the story to really be about the friend dynamics and how the group changes. That out-of-syncness in the group, with some having kids and how that changes the friendships and the romances. And how this alternate family choice changes the way everyone starts to sort of look at themselves and question their own choices and feel judged by their other friends or judge the other friends themselves. I think everybody’s definition of love and of family and friendship and romance and even physical attraction sort of shifts and evolves through the story.

GQ: One of my favorite parts of that dynamic is when you and Adam present your plan to all the friends, everyone is just supportive to their faces and then goes and whispers: What a horrible idea._

JW: Exactly, like, _What a disaster!

GQ: I do that all the times with my friends. Do you?

JW: I’m pretty much honest to a fault. It’s my best and worst quality. I have a very hard time not telling the truth, and it sometimes gets me in trouble.

GQ: So, if someone told you they were going to have a baby with their best friend and not be romantic, would you tell them it was a terrible idea?

JW: Oh, no! Because I would not necessarily think it’s a terrible idea. Actually, there are a lot of alternative family arrangements out there and I’ve seen a lot of them working beautifully. I’m not a parent yet, but I feel like a kid needs to be loved. There are worse ways to bring a child into the world than with someone who you’ve known for 20 years. Ironically, my managers who are best friends and business partners sat me down a few months after we wrapped the movie and said, “We have something to tell you. We’re having a baby together.” They just had the baby last week. He’s happy and healthy, and everybody’s delighted and over the moon.
