What Did Paul Know About Jesus? Not Much.

Paul Thomas Anderson is online. The Phantom Thread director did a Twitter Q&A Wednesday afternoon to promote his new, dark romance. Anderson has admitted that he doesn’t love press obligations, but it’s the burden he has to bear. In December, he told >GQ that he has a crazy habit of working with actors who are either unwilling or unable to promote his movies: “Adam Sandler doesn’t do press interviews. Or Daniel Day. You know? For that matter, I have made a few movies with Joaquin, who is absolutely the worst person to go promote your film.” So today PT-Bae was having a little fun with this press tour, answering questions about broccoli (he’s not that into it), Haim (he stans), Paddington 2, and more. (He did not, however, answer this Vulture inquiry regarding how exactly he became Mr. Maya Rudolph.) See the director’s best answers, below.

To be clear, Paul Thomas Anderson has not read 13 Reasons Why and also dresses like a cute, color-by-number cartoon:

Be forewarned: Phantom Thread’s Lothario Reynolds Woodcock can get quite fussy.

Well, I liked being in the wide open spaces with Plainview digging for oil. Reynolds house was a bit claustrophobic. I think Plainview would kill me, however, while Reynolds would just stab you with his wicked tongue. Plainview was less fussy, so I say Plainview #askpta https://t.co/DUbgb8jLNZ

PTA is very into Call Me by Your Name, but did not give a ruling on whether Armie Hammer should’ve eaten the peach.

Need to convince your friends to see Magnolia? “Just lie.”

Just tell her/him that it's 90 minutes long. just lie. if it's too late for that, I'd suggest watching Nashville. it's only 89 minutes long #askpta https://t.co/qxHYUsryA7

Jesus is Haim. Update your bibles accordingly.
