Diablo Cody interview
Diablo Cody on her debut script for the hottest movie on the block, Juno
A former stripper, Diablo Cody’s debut script, Juno, has turned her into the hottest property in Hollywood. The story of a pregnant teen (Ellen Page), it’s afforded Cody nominations for Best Original Screenplay at the Golden Globes, Baftas and Oscars.
How close are you to the character of Juno?
Well, I’m not really Juno. I’ve never had a baby, which is a miraculous feat. But the character is autobiographical. When I was a teenager, I had a friend who got pregnant. That was a difficult thing for us to get through as friends. She was grappling with an extremely grown-up issue at the time that I didn’t really understand.
Was it a cathartic experience writing it?
Everything I write is an emotional catharsis. It’s my way of exercising demons. With Juno, people think of the pregnancy being the major plot point. But for me, it was the chance for me to work out some issues about a relationship I had in high school with a guy. The movie is a ninety-minute apology to this guy – so it does feel good.
