Paul explained, “I had seen ‘Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind’ that Michel had directed and had really liked it. I thought it had a good sense of humour and was a very well-made film. His work is really simple, witty and just good fun. The connection with Natalie came from my daughter Stella, who makes non-leather shoes that Natalie buys, so I just thought, ‘Well, I’ll ring her up and just see if she’ll do it’. So I rang her up and said ‘Hey I’m Stella’s dad!’ She had a bit of time off as she was between films so it was great. I mentioned that I wanted to work with Michel Gondry and it turned out that Natalie was a fan of his”.
