Probably The Funniest/Most Flattering Thing That Happened In 2011
When David got to be Melanie Laurent's (maybe my favorite French babe) ex-boyfriend in the movie Beginners. Over a year ago I got an email from director Mike Mills' assistant saying that Mike Mills had found the photograph of David and Tippy on Men and Cats and wanted to use it. I giddily signed a release form and wondered for a long time if the photograph would make it in the movie. I finally got to see it in November and about an hour and 6 minutes into the film there's a scene where Melanie Laurent talks about her exes and David and Tippy fill the entire screen. Our names are in the credits as Rachel Easton and David Easton at the very end. They spelled Eastin wrong, but I don't care. You should watch Beginners for David and Tippy and because it's a beautiful movie that had me crying, but happily.
