But as the lady has confessed the truth we have no other option besides accepting the truth. Luckily, we just got everything we needed. We were talking about how much more natural they seemed on camera than me.
I would stutter, or look uncomfortable, or look right at the camera.PERSON TO PERSON Trailer with Michael Cera
Was it weird for you interviewing people about such personal stuff? Oh it was very weird.
How am I going to make them feel comfortable enough to open up to me? They became the person who was driving the whole conversation.

It was really nice. I know at first you were planning to stay off camera.
How did they convince you to act in this? I was fine with being on camera documenting other people, but Nick wanted me to really go on dates and meet people. And I was like, no way would I ever sign up to expose myself in that manner. Nor would I feel comfortable.
It would not come off naturally. So when we agreed it would be more of a narrative, with a plot — scripted in a sense — I felt more comfortable with putting a version of myself out there.
Did that make watching it weird for you? It made me not like myself. Was it hard to pick who was going to play the love interest in the narrative portion, or were you just like, "Oh, I'm dating Michael Cera, so we'll just have him do it"?
It was tough trying to figure out.
Charlyne Yi Talks About Michael Cera and their "Break-Up" - Oh No They Didn't!
And we weren't dating at the time [laughs] Yeah, I also heard that we broke up [laughs]. Someone sent me an article that I was really sad. It says that I'm sad that we're touring together. But he's actually in Toronto right now filming a movie called 'Scott Pilgrim. But it was hard to cast it, at least for me.
Nick knew that he wanted Michael. I wasn't aware of his work.
I knew him, but not his work. I figured everyone's an actor, everyone's done commercials and stuff. So when people said he was an actor, I didn't really think anything of it. But then we were making a list of all the young actors that were talented and we're like, "Who's going to want to play a character named their own name and not get paid a lot of money [laughs] and also be able to, like, play it realistic?
What if it was Jonah Hill? How would Charlyne and Jonah Hill interact? It would have been a completely different movie. He's great, too, but then Nick was like, "Oh, Michael's really good. I mean, essentially there's a part of you in the character, but I was like, Wow, he was really good.
I pitched to him and did a horrible job [laughs], and I don't think it made any sense. And then Nick re-pitched, and Michael agreed.
Has your attitude toward love, which was pretty cynical at the outset of the movie, changed at all since? What's strange is that when we were writing the narrative we were like, "Oh, Charlyne's character won't change through other people's stories" But the real me learned a lot from these people.
