SXSW 2014 VIDEO: Tilda Swinton on Only Lovers Left Alive
If you listen to The B-Movies Podcast, then you know that there's no celebrity that William Bibbiani loves more than Tilda Swinton. (Except maybe Kesha.) And just to prove how magical SXSW truly is, not only did Bibbs finally get to interview Tilda Swinton, but he got to interview her on camera, on his birthday. She even got him coffee!
Tilda Swinton is in Austin, TX to share her latest film, Only Lovers Left Alive – a film Bibbs described as "practically drenched in laissez-faire coolness" – and in this exclusive interview she tells him all about the enchanting world of vampires created by Jim Jarmusch in his new fantasy, which Swinton and Tom Hiddleston as vampire lovers reconnecting after a century, listening to awesome music and contemplating fungi. Tilda Swinton knows a lot about fungi too, thanks to Jim Jarmusch, whom she also describes as "a fun guy."
Tilda Swinton also teaches William Bibbiani a thing or two about real love, astronomy, vampire gloves, meeting your heroes and which song audiences should dance to before they see Only Lovers Left Alive for themselves.
Only Lovers Left Alive premieres in theaters on April 11, 2014.
