One of the greatest things about working in the news business is meeting people you respect and admire. Catherine O’Hara is one of those people. Whether it is one of her many characters on SCTV or her singing The Banana Boat Song in Beetlejuice – she is always a classy, funny lady.
When I got the invite to interview her while in town promoting the amazing Spike Jonze adaptation of Where the Wild Things Are (she voices the Wild Thing Judith in the film), I jumped at the chance. We chatted about the film, her dream gig and what her kids thought of the movie (watch the full interview below). And as expected she was just as classy and funny in person.
Where the Wild Things Are opens in theatres October 16.
