22 Movies Celebrities Watch When They Need Some Comfort
Because we could all use a little comfort right now.
If you're living on planet Earth right now, it might feel a little bit like this:
So, while we were at the Sundance Film Festival last week, we asked celebrities what movies they watch when they want to feel comforted. Below are some of their answers. Maybe they'll help you find some comfort, too.
You've Got Mail and Day For Night – Jenny Slate
Four Weddings and a Funeral — Kumail Nanjiani
Bridget Jones's Diary, Annie Hall, Manhattan, Three Men and a Little Lady — Elizabeth Olsen
Billy Jack, Brazil, Time Bandits, and Baron Munchausen — Nick Offerman
Groundhog Day — Aubrey Plaza
"I could watch Bill Murray do anything over and over and over again. I don't know, that movie, it's comforting to me."
Legend, The Dark Crystal, The Last Unicorn — Chloë Sevigny
Purple Rain — Emily Gordon
"I haven't watched it since he passed, but when I was sick, I would put that movie on."
Being There, A Face in the Crowd, and Ace in the Hole — Judd Apatow
Terms of Endearment — Connie Britton
"I just saw Terms of Endearment again — can we talk about that for a second? We all remember the amazing Shirley MacLaine 'give my daughter the shot' scene, but maybe what we forget is the incredible comedy, the incredible characterizations."
The Champ — Ray Romano
"I like to cry. I'm a crier. I'm a sucker, I could cry at a commercial, I'm gonna cry soon — right now. I like sad movies, I don't know why, it's cathartic for me to let it out. The Champ, remember The Champ? When little Ricky Schroder [cries], 'Wake up, Champ!' That's a good release."
The Big Lebowski — O'Shea Jackson Jr.
"When that movie's on, I'm throwing the remote. I might break it. The Big Lebowski is everything. The Dude abides. That's my go-to — the simplest plot, and it grows and snowballs into this huge fiasco. There's nothing better than Jeff Bridges in that."
